Our family is fairly new to Christ Lutheran School, but we have felt so warmly welcomed right from the start.

The teachers individually know each child and mentor them based on their specific needs. There might be other private schools in the area but they are ridiculously more expensive and I am not sure you get as much for the money. Can't say enough good things about this place! Read less

CLS has been a blessing to our family. I have always felt good about sending them to school and the communication with teachers is great. The only draw back is that it's small and if your child doesn't "fit" in, they don't have as many choices to make other friends that they may have more things in common

I know that certain kids need special attention and the teacher spends the majority of his/ her time with that child, while others have their hand up for help and aren't getting it. I think in those cases maybe a teacher aid should be added to the class for extra help with the students. But honestly CLS is wonderful and my family and I are very happy and blessed to have Christ a part of the school day. I would give this school an A with room for some improvement in a few areas. No person or school is perfect in anyway, BUT, CLS has been perfect for our family. Read less
