School Reviews

The teachers here are wonderful. They are all patient, loving, and willing to collaborate with parents on the education of the children. This year they started offering piano lessons at school, which is really convenient. They also offering very affordable after-school care, which I used regularly so that my first grader didn''t have to take the bus. Wonderful school!

I have always wanted a school where Christ''s word was at the center of every subject. I wanted my children to know their Savior and be able to freely speak about him. At Cross of Christ, we have that! My oldest is currently in 8th grade and I feel there would never have been a better school for him. The love and dedication from the teachers and staff far exceeds my expectations. The subjects taught and the technology used will help my children in every area of their lives. This is a great school!

I cannot express how much this school has meant to my family. I have three daughters that have attended through the complete curriculum and moved on to graduate from West Lutheran High School. Words will never be adequate enough to thank all of the Teachers, Pastors, Office Staff and all of the volunteer help that keep the Word of God balanced in the everyday education of the children. True satisfaction comes from seeing my grandchildren now in attendance. Keep up the excellent work Cross of Christ and give all Glory to God.
