School Reviews

I would like to thank the administration for caring so deeply about the students and the culture of our school. They evaluate every decision for our school based not only on academic requirements needed for college admission of its graduates, but they also evaluate their decisions based on God's word and the bigger picture of eternal things. I know they care about each family and student they admit to our community. I know they are grieved when a relationship is not peaceful for whatever reason. I pray God will give them courage and wisdom to lead well for the bigger picture of life rather than the emotion of the moment as students and parents react to momentary difficulties or confusion. Whenever I have engaged them over a situation, I have been impressed by their wisdom and insight and solutions suggested to make a situation right. I have found them to be reasonable and willing to listen when I take the time to ask them their evaluation of a situation. I have grown to trust them in their decisions. I thank them for being willing to shepherd the faculty, staff, students and parents in this important endeavor of educating our children.
