8 Parent Reviews for Shining Light Academy

I am a former student of this school, and am currently in high school. I attended SLA for many years, and I've come to regret that decision. They are extremely far behind in many subjects compared to public schools, including mathematics. I entered my freshman year of high school having no idea how to ...  Read more

My children have attended SLA for several years and agree this has been their best year so far! They are glad they are able to learn without (former) students constantly displaying bad attitudes and disrespecting teachers and intimidating other students. Many thanks to the new administration for stepping ...  Read more

We had to remove our children from SLA after the problems we had to endure last year. I'm not sure what the last post means about 'haters' moving on because we loved this school and supported it with our time and money for many years. We were close to the teachers, students and their families and it ...  Read more

This is a great school! The new administrator had to clean up a lot of things that had been allowed by past administrators.

The pre k and very early elementary grades are good but from 4th grade up they are bad. This new ...  Read more

Our children have been at this school for 5 years and although it used to be a good school, the new principle who started in 2011 has caused a lot of families to leave. He has degraded not just our children in front of others, but many others as well. He has created an environment that is extremely ...  Read more

We have been here since K3 for one child and K4 for the other. We love it. Academically and spiritually a great school. My K4 child is reading at a level that I would have never anticipated. This is a great school. We love the structure and the discipline that the school provides for both our kids.

My son has been attending Shining Light Academy since K-4 (4 years old). In my opinion this school is great for its K-3 - 2nd or 3rd grade then it slowly declines acedemically. There are a less than a handful of above-average teachers at this school. What I do love about the school is that the teachers ...  Read more
