School Reviews

My son is in 5th grade. So far all of his teachers have been great. The students tend to be much more mature and moral than the local public school that my son went to for K-3. The facilities are very well kept. The security on campus is great. There are volunteer security because it is also a large church. Parents seem to very involved in the students lives. Many of the students mothers stay home, which is a huge positive and definitely makes a difference in the attitude of the children. The academics are the best part, because there is no homosexual indoctrination like the California public schools require. There is also no teaching on evolution and other topics that are just plain wrong to teach a child as fact like they are taught in the public schools. And most importantly, the children learn about the Lord. They learn the Bible and they learn what is right and wrong. Again, the public schools are hugely lacking in this area.
