Ada Christian School Ratings & Reviews

December 15, 2014 Submitted by a parent
Living in forest hills and having access to very, very well rated and very free education--you would expect exceptional and hopefully unique education. However, ACS does little (in my opinion) to differentiate itself from Forest Hills. They almost fully adopted common core standards (a serious blow to my perception of the institution) and they do little to assist my child who is losing interest because the curriculum is just too simple. My child's previous teachers have provided extra material, but that has stopped this year. Why do I buy a small car every year to pay for an education that doesn't rise above the level of the free one (that also provides busing)? To go to a school where prayer is accepted and God is part of the curriculum? We can do that at home. And sadly, probably will. ACS just doesn't earn its cost. And common core aggravates me every time I review my children's homework or discuss their lessons from the day. I strongly, in fact, fervently encourage parents to research common core and why states and many educators deplore it's implentation. Perhaps Michigan will undue what has been done, and maybe ACS will thankfully follow suit.

We have been a part of ACS for many years and we did have two children graduate. Sadly, we are throwing in the towel after this year. As a former board member of ACS and being heavily involved in the inner-workings of this school, I simply have to fall in line with one of the above posts. Although ACS has its positives, strong leadership, specifically, the administration, is the problem. The culture of the school has changed dramatically and after a considerable about of prayer and strong consideration, we are moving on. My personal feeling is that ACS is still searching for their identity. It is a conservative school that lacks a progressive platform. For some, that is a good thing, but the culture of the school under the current leadership is clearly the reason why the school is struggling. The board is made up of good people but it is a mystery to many why they fail to recognize, and more importantly, act on the real problem. Until the administrative issues are addressed, ACS will continue on the path of simply being mediocre and our children simply deserve better.

I and both my siblings attended ACS from K-8 and loved the school. We now send both of our daughters to Ada. It is neat to see many of the parents that I went to school with now sending their kids there. That is a testimonial to how great this school is. We absolutely love the school. The teachers and leadership of the school truly reflect the love of God and the education is fantastic. Great kids and great parents. Worth every penny.

I feel truly sorry for whomever had such a poor experience with Ada Christian School; it's quite atypical from my experiences over the years. I attended Ada Christian from preschool through eighth grade and I could not have asked for a better elementary, middle, and junior high school experience. First of all, the teachers truly care for their students in a Christ-like and loving manner. Even though I graduated quite a few years ago, teachers I had that are still there can remember my name and talk as though it was just yesterday that I was in their classroom. Classes were challenging and interesting, and the school's small size allowed educators to teach in innovative and flexible ways. Upon entering high school, I was able to skip over most of the standard freshman classes and excel in the advanced high school courses. The school enrollment isn't dismal because of any deficiency; it's small because it lends to a better learning environment. As a former student, graduate, and future parent of ACS students, I can attest that Ada Christian offers nothing but the best Christ-centered education there is available.

I find it interesting, yet not surprising that all negative reviews on Ada Christian have been removed. We will see how long this one will stay. My guess is not long so I will keep it short. The problem with this school is leadership - plain and simple. Their enrollment is dismal and many parents refuse to volunteer or donate money. Forty-four families demanded change at the end of last year but it fizzled out. If you want a clear picture of the true Ada Christian, ask all the families who have recently left. They will not be hard to find.
