Summer camp sign led us to an amazing school

humanpyramidIt has been my great pleasure to have my daughter enrolled at Kingdom Heights Christian School since fall 2012.  When we relocated to Round Rock, TX in June of 2012, my husband and I sought a Christian-based environment to further our daughter’s education.  It was by luck or Devine intervention, which we happened to drive by Kingdom Heights while traveling from our hotel room to our future residence.  The sign on the school advertised for Summer Camp, little did we know how much more we had found.  After our very first interaction with Mrs Wright, and later with Pastor Wright, we knew that Kingdom Heights was the place for our daughter.

Our daughter’s strengths are encouraged and any of her shortcomings are fostered to the level of real learning.

After thoroughly enjoying the activities and the fellowship with like-minded children during Summer Camp, our daughter was able to continue her academic growth during the school year.  We, only briefly, attempted to send our daughter to public school and the results were disastrous.  Not only was our child considered to be only a number, we still have absolutely no idea how she did during those 4 brief months in public school.  Being an involved parent, I regularly met with her teacher just prior to school on a weekly basis to make sure the transition was going well.  I was assured every week that she was doing well and that there were no issues.  When I received her end-of-term report card, the grading system was undecipherable and the explanation, which came with the report card, was in Spanish.  This is not our native language and those who put together the report card didn’t seem to care.  We decided immediately, that our daughter would go back to Christian-based school.

At Kingdom Heights, our daughter’s strengths are encouraged and any of her shortcomings are fostered to the level of real learning.  She is not taught to memorize a standardized test as so many public schools appear forced to do, to receive funding.  We get a sense that she is mastering the building blocks of future learning.  At any given time, I can talk with her teachers and get a real sense of what she’s doing, how she’s doing, and any things we may need to work on at home.  She is engaged, happy and, at this writing, eagerly looking forward to returning to school!
