Does anyone have relative, educational ideas about Cornerstone Academy and/or All Saints School? We are very dissatified with public schools here and want to put our three children in private school. Please only response from people who have a first hand knowledge. I don't want to waste my time reading responses from those people who don't "believe in" private school. That is not the point here.

I was at the Christmas Program that Cornerstone Academy put on and was very impressed with the school. So impressed that we talked our kids into sending our grandchildren there! Our oldest grandchild will be starting kindergarten next year and she is going to Cornerstone.

When we checked into pricing, it was half the price of All Saints, but just as good education wise.

From the top all the way down, we loved Cornerstone Academy. The kids were friendlier and so were the staff.

We also went to All Saints and it is a good school too, but we felt like the kids and staff had a really inflated opinion of themselves, if you know what I mean!

Good luck making your decision. I don't blame you for looking somewhere other than our public school system.

All Saints is more interested in your money than your kids education. I know this first hand.

Either school will give your child a good education. There are advantages and disadvantages to both schools. AS is more expensive, and as already stated, there are some inflated egos there.(But I suspect that's the case anywhere you go.) Being a newer school, I'm not sure if CA is fully accredited yet, but that should happen eventually, if not already. My hesitation with CA and my own kids is the strong fundamentalist influence. I'm a Christian, but do not want my children indoctrinated. However, many people in the area are fundamentalists, and if that's no problem for you, CA should be just fine.

I too have thought long and hard about taking my children out of the school system, but one of them has special needs that a private school would not be able to meet. Best to you and your children as you make your decision.

Gene Quarles is at AS. That's gotta raise the credibility of that place.

Is Mr. Quarles teaching or Adminstrative?

WOW, here is something that Morristown Resident does not know. Must be a first because he thinks he knows everything.

No where do I say I know it all, because I will be the first to admit it. And if you have read any of my posts I am a woman.

Should have known you were a woman, the way you moan and complain about everything, typical.

I know very little about anything and a whole lot about nothing. I feel that I did learn a few things where I received my MS degree from Duke University. I know Coach Gene Quarles is TEACHING at All Saints and would do nothing but teach. Not only is Gene Quarles a great math teacher, but at one time he was an outstabding basketball coach and I had the pleasure of watching him coach his final game. I was honored that my daughter had him in math class at West and made an A in the course. Betty Golden, Susie Justice and Jimmy Claborne are three other outstanding teachers at All Saints. Mrs. Justice was a student of mine at East the first year I was in Morristown so naturally, she would have to be a Blue Ribbon teacher.:-) I haven't lost my modesty. As far as Morristown Resident, what I know about her and her finest quality is she is a wonderful loving mother who spends a lot of time with her kids. Unlike some mothers, she does not drop then off at the mall for some free baby sitting service. She may not know it all but then who does? Maybe she comes close. Her friends tell me she is an All-American Mom and that is much more important than knowing all there is to know.

My child went to the ASES preschool for a VERY BRIEF period of time. I have nothing positive to say about the school or the administrators. Here is something else for you to ponder, I am a public school teacher. I've had ASES students in my class who were educated there through middle school. They are extremely lacking in basic knowledge.

Basic Knowledge, or they can't memorize the test that you public teachers are required to slam in our faces so you can get good reviews and big fat raises? All the basic knowledge I need sure did not come from the classroom. School is a joke in what they teach. Realy, do I need to know what a dangling participle is?
I agree

It's funny if public schools are so bad why All Saints hires every retired public school teacher they can get their hands on like Quarles, Claiborn and Justice.

I personally went to the Morristown Seventh Day Adventist School as a teenager. I loved it there. You should check it out. It's located at the church just behind Lowe's/Kmart.

I will say this about the school, my brother came out of 8th grade there, and went into the public high school, and was two grades higher than what he was learning in 9th grade. So his first two yrs. of public high school were nothing for him, But a waste of time.

The Morristown Seventh Day Adventist school is not about your money, they are about educating your children.
