Emmanuel Christian School Ratings & Reviews
I have had two children at ECS. My son made the decision to change from public school and graduated from ECS. He did so much better in this Christian environment. The love and caring teachers helped him grow both in academics and in his faith. My daughter has also chosen to go to ECS. I could not ask for better teachers. The small classes and concern for each student is a complete change from public school. It is exactly like family at ECS. The principal and teachers talk with you about what is best for your child. I would suggest to anyone to place their children in this school. Two young ladies that just graduated for ECS were accepted at the WVU Veterinarian School. Very few students can get in this program and it is a great achievement for two out of the same school to be accepted.
I spent my junior and senior high school years at Emmanuel. The school has no appropriate means to match students who are gifted in in the arts, sciences, and mathematics with programs that could foster those talents. The curriculum was taught as dogma, where critical and analytical thought were neglected, which is entirely non-conducive to a meaningful education.The school did not prepare me well for collegiate level studies, requiring over a year re-learning algebra, critical thought, ethics and modern scientific practice at my current university.(some 15k dollars tuition). Emmanuel was bogged down by internal politics and constant bickering between different religious factions my entire high school career, spilling over into school board and parent/teacher conferences.I wish I'd had the opportunity to study with real teachers, not video link to BJU teachers. I wish instead of being pressured to spend my time playing basketball and soccer, someone would have pressured me to explore further academic studies. Instead of indoctrinating their students with unfounded superstitions of the modern world, they should educate them to think like rational adults; they'll have to someday.
