    "I am a Parent of 3 children at Calvary, and I must say.. you will either LOVE IT or HATE IT.. I say this because they are firm in their rules and very disciplined with the children. The school is very organized, and I appreciate that type of leadership when teaching African American children. Short story... my daughter started her 2nd grade year severally behind (Math and reading)... the teachers tutored her 2 days a week and I also go her an outside tutor. At the end of the school year her teacher said she was "MOST improved".. they worked very hard with her to bring her up to speed for this coming school year. A parent could not ask for anything more!! There are some parents who feel they are harder on the boys, and I am OK with that.. My son needs to know that the world is not FAIR, and he must follow rules, so if they are harder on him, he will be just that more prepared for the real world..."

    "I am beyond hurt and disappointed in this school. It is obvious that there is a heavy push toward maintaining the schools image by any means necessary. For the school administrator to recommend to a parent to place their child on pharmaceutical drugs only to maintain classroom management is reprehensible. This school is ill equipped to handle black male children with respect, concern, and dignity. To expect young children to be "cookie-cutter" and conform to ridiculous and ill conceived behavioral expectations is unconscionable. Our job as parents working in concert with the teachers should be to encourage and cultivate the child's character not to tear them down, making them feel different and less than their peers. As Christians, it is of upmost importance to maintain strong moral characteristics as we stand up for Christ, by breaking children's spirit, we are not equipping them with the skills they will need to succeed. I pray the administration will recognize the err of their ways and not treat any other child the way my children were treated in this school."

    "My grandson is a kindergartener. He has attended Calvary since he was 2 and a half.. The atmosphere is amazing and the presence of the Holy Spirit definitely rest there. I am extremely satisfied with every aspect at Calvary. Accountability and responsibility is taught from an early age at Calvary Academy. The curriculum is challenging and centered in Christian beliefs, however, I would like to see them introduce and maintain foreign language education options. My experiences with faculty and staff have been both positive and responsive to any questions or concerns I might have. I will continue to support the vision and mission that God has given to them."

    "First year here. The staff is friendly and my child teacher always responds to email, which I love. I do think there are way too many kids in my child's class, 20 kids in each kindergarten class is too many for a private school. I'm paying for more personal attention not less. I think it's greed on the part of the school and that leaves me feeling like maybe my child does not belong here. I in the process of reassessing if my child belong here as I have another right behind them."

    "Great school! My daughter became computer literate at an early age, learned about Christ, and excelled at reading, but she was criticzed for her personality at the school because many of the teachers didn't properly displine her. They need to improve on staffing the right teachers who are qualified and understand children, and understand how to discipline them. I didn't like how they would embarrass my child and highlight her behavior in front of the students and other teachers. I hope this school improves on that. Other than that, it was a pretty good school. Some of the teachers were very talented and devoted to education."
