With all the national and local headlines highlighting how Covid-19 has decimated learning and test scores in public schools nationwide, including in Crook County, we are pleased to report that Crook County Christian School is experiencing strong performance nationally!
Over 74% of Our Students are Testing above National Percentile!
Even though this is our first year of operation since 2015, we knew it was imperative to re-build a school capable of competing with similar schools nationally and in our region. We don’t just want to compete, we want to be the best option for families. We want students and families in Crook County to have access to the same level of academic strength and opportunity as we emphasize on discipleship, critical thinking, and developing a biblical worldview centered on truth. This is the only way our students are going to succeed. Over 74% of our students are testing above national percentiles, and the majority are testing above grade level compared to their peers around the nation. Our testing is rigorous, so these results are encouraging!
#1 Key to Success? Our Staff and Teaching Team!
What makes Crook County Christian School a place where your child can thrive? The key answer is our staff. We have an incredible team who has helped us build and establish a wonderful culture and DNA centered around learning. Our entire staff functions as a team and supports one another, they are experienced and qualified, and they are good at what they do. Some core characteristics of our team are:
- They are skilled and experienced at their craft
- They love your kids and create a supportive learning environment
- They care for each student as an individual, and encourage individual progress
- Small class sizes give them the ability to focus on each student’s needs
- The love what they do and are passionate about Christian education
- We invest in our teachers to improve their skills and learn from other high-quality schools, conferences, and continuing education opportunities
Also, Creating a Fun and Productive Learning Environment
We provide an excellent environment academically and spiritually in which students can excel. Not only do students know they are loved, supported and cared for, but they are also given all the tools and attention needed to thrive. Our students LOVE chapel, they love our staff, and they love the atmosphere that is created and carefully cultivated.
Challenging Students to Pursue Excellence
One key to success is seeing each student as an individual, and helping them find the confidence and motivation to enjoy learning for a lifetime. We want to help them find the things they are passionate about, and help them grow in their core knowledge and skills. Students should be encouraged to pursue excellence, and we want to help guide each one along the way. We encourage them to measure their individual progress as opposed to comparing themselves to their peers, and we celebrate when then find success academically and spiritually!
Another key to our success in strong volunteers. We have several retired teachers who come in and work with individual students in areas where they need more support in reading, math or spelling. We also have volunteers who come in and read with students, helping them grow in this key skill.
In summary, we’ve built an amazing team and each new qualified and experienced member we add compliments that team in key areas. God has provided an amazing staff, they truly are the best team I’ve ever worked with. The best is yet to come, even though we’re seeing great success already!
