33 Parent Reviews for Word Of Life Christian Academy
This is a review of the elementary program. Having worked closely with this schools administration and also with having a relative as a public school teacher I feel I have a unique perspective to compare the public vs private school environment. I have several children at WLCA and over the past 6 years
... Read more I commend their elementary program. 1. It's a Christian curriculum and God is at the forefront of their beliefs. They begin everyday in prayer, have weekly chapel, and teach biblical principals. 2. The elementary staff is well trained, accredited, and chosen not only for their teaching skills, but also their faith. 3. The curriculum is challenging and on par leaning to exceeding the CCSD curriculum. Examples of my children's experiences: preschoolers learn to read, 1st learned cursive writing, monetary math; 2nd grade multiplication/division; 3rd grade book reporting, creative writing; 5th grade historical geography, and pre algebra. 4. Multiple field trips a year. The school does have opportunities to improve its play area, and further expand its sports, and consolidate fees, but I am very pleased with the education they have received so far. Read less

We've had our son here for 2 years - going on his 3rd year. It is a Christian school running the Abeka curriculum which is what we wanted. Some of the other reviews I've read were either posted 3 years ago or were posted by the same person or BOTH! In either case, yes, not a perfect school - dangerous
... Read more blacktop playground WITH NO FENCE! This needs to be addressed IMMEDIATELY. Teachers are ok, I gave them 3 out of 5 stars. Its a Christian based school so we expect Bible teaching and Chapel along with Math, English, Science, etc so our child can be well rounded. Our boy is WAY ahead of our friends' kids who are in public schools I believe, BECAUSE of the the well-rounded approach and the fact that he doesn't need to go to school in a bullet proof vest or deal with the indoctrination of political correctness being handed out in public school classrooms. The price is fair - all private schools hit you for money for EVERYthing - c.f. First Lutheran, Bishop Gorman, etc. - overall a good school and we recommend it to anyone and everyone seeking to give their child a well-rounded education Read less

Before considering this school perform your due diligence and vet the staff and policies. A majority of the staff is not certified to teach and several lack degrees by an accredited institution. The administration is more concerned with gouging the parents and students for cash than providing a well
... Read more rounded and challenging curriculum. The faculty turnover rate is dramatic and announcement of new teachers and their qualifications are not provided to parents. I challenge anyone to contact the teachers and administration via the e-mail addresses provided. Your e-mails will NOT be answered. This school claims they teach excellence yet the curriculum is "Watered down" as a teacher actually admitted. The LOL detention policy is in place not to discipline wayward students but rather to pad the coffers of the school. I urge you to seriously review this school, speak with the administrators and review the credentials of the staff before considering this as an appropriate learning institution for your children.

Wlca is the best school in the world. My children have been attending this school for eight years. Some of the comments below do not truly reflect the character of the school, nor the vision of the founder. The school is not perfect; you will never find a perfect school. However, it's better than most.
... Read more Your children will be surrounded by good influences. Principal Marchello is a wonderful, godly woman who leads our school with excellence. The school showcases a wide variety of teachers who are well equipped to teach your child the academics he or she needs in order to be successful. If you're looking for a great school, WLCA is the place for your child. Read less

My son attends Word of Life Christian Academy. He was in public school here in Las Vegas and also another private school before we transferred him to WOLCA. This is his second year and he is in middle school. We have been very pleased with the quality of education and the smaller class sizes. A great

I have watched good teachers come and go from this school over the last several years. Why is this? Check their records! Most of the staff do not even have a degree and how can they post that they teach Excellence when they are not degreed? Why is there a high turn around in staff, why did they leave?

This is my third attempt to post my review, the first two posts having been removed. My experience with WLCA resulted in my daughter regressing both academically and socially. I would not recommend this preschool to anyone who is interested in their child's educational, social or spiritual development.

This is my third attempt to post a review of the WLCA Preschool. As my past two postings have been deleted, I will attempt once more. My point is not to make anyone look or feel badly, I just want to be heard. In my six months of my daughter's attendance, my experience was not welcoming. I felt that
... Read more the teachers were bothered by me. As I am a teacher and am able to identify and address classroom concerns, I was patronized by the teachers and the preschool director. WLCA may have a great K-12. People who I know and love send their kids there and are happy. My experience was only with the preschool. The teachers are unskilled, not good classroom managers and have a political agenda. If this posting is deleted, I am going to pay a visit to the preschool director personally. Read less

Please realize you can't please everyone. Having said that. The school is excellent. They use the Abeka curriculum. This school has dramatically changed in the last 5 years from the time it first opened. My son is now a Kindergartner and is in his 3rd year attending. The principle leadership is the
