Sweethaven Christian Academy Ratings & Reviews

October 13, 2017 Submitted by a parent
My children have attended Sweethaven for six years. I love that I can feel confident dropping them off knowing that they will be loved, protected, and educated. The Staff truly cares for the kids and wants the best for them. The education is excellent. In national standardized testing, my kids rank very high. The schools average scores are very high. Most of all I love that it is a safe place filled with good kids and staff.

"I would highly recommend Sweethaven for elementary school (the upper grades are small, and I can't speak to the experience there). The teachers are receptive and talented, and you can rest assured that your child will get grounded in the fundamentals of reading, writing, and arithmetic. They will also get character education. I view this as a positive. However, I must point out that the school's discipline code is quite strict. (Children get ""tallies"" for various forms of misbehavior, and although I recognize the obvious importance of following the rules and respecting authority, at times I have questioned whether things are TOO strict, and whether the children are going to become too subservient and mousy. Some families have pulled their children out of Sweethaven because they were concerned that the tallies their child was receiving was hurting their self-esteem and personality and causing excessive anxiety.) Students wear uniforms, which has honestly been very nice. The principal and staff are all thoughtful and concerned, and you can be confident that your child is in a SAFE and loving environment. (For parents choosing between public school in Portsmouth and Sweethaven, this is an enormous plus for the latter.) So long as your child can thrive with the discipline system, I would highly recommend Sweethaven."

My husband and I were worried about where to send our son to school when he started Kindergarten. Sweethaven wasn't originally our first choice, but I could not be happier with the way that things happened, and that we landed at this school. The progress he made educationally in the first half of the year alone was enough for others outside of our family to notice the difference. I will be honest and tell you that they are a very strict, conservative private school - your child will obey their rules, respect others, and truly grow in their relationship with God. All teachers and staff treat one another and all children as though they are family, and they truly enjoy being around one another. My son has absolutely thrived since beginning at this school and my husband and I are committed to ensuring he remains at this school for as long as possible.

A private baptist based education. My daughter attended another private school in the area. My child has issues eating and always has, I love the fact that her teacher at Sweethaven knows her eating habits and has encouraged her to eat new things. The staff are attentive, the children are happy, and the physical setting and Central Location are added pluses. When I toured the school of all the schools I looked at, I was impressed with the Cafeteria and choices to pack lunches, purchase from the cafeteria, etc--the interview itself was an assessment of my child--not just them trying to sell a slot, but actual interest in my child's current abilities and meeting their requirements for her grade level. It was slightly more money than some other options, but the structure and overall interaction as well as food and activity options make me very pleased with the choice to have my only child attend the school. So far our entire family is thrilled with my preschooler's current educational outlook. And the added bonus is being able to avoid our personal and religious objections to newer sexual education requirements at developmentally inappropriate levels in public schools.
