School Reviews

This is an absolutely FANTASTIC school, offering everything that a family would want in a school. Caring, Christ-Centered education with an emphasis on bringing quality education to families of every income bracket. Plenty of financial aid to those who need it and great help from the administration to find the help that you need. Top quality, from the Principal on down! We have been at CLS for over 8 years and it has quality all the way.
