This school screams quality in all aspects. We are truly happy here:-)
This school is amazing! I'm in the sixth grade and I used to have problems in language arts but now I'm getting really close to advanced! The teachers here know what to do and always find ways for us to learn in a way we can! If your looking for a school choose LFCS! A safe and intelligant school to be in! :D
Excellent education, extremely safe and if you are able to share with other families your values.... WHAT AN ADDED BONUS.... WE ARE LFCS FAMILY and for many of us, of our own accord, IN GOD WE TRUST!
good education and safe but if you aren't extremely religous I would choose another school.
I curently have 2 students attending LFCS and my oldest child matriculated from 8th grade last year and went on to public HS. I have been extremely pleased and impressed with the school. LFCS, Inc. now has 3 schools, my children are at the Junior Academy. I find the teachers to be exceptional; they are caring, passionate and find creative ways to stimulate learning. The principal at the Junior Academy (JA) site is fantastic; he knows the kids by name and makes parents feel welcome. My kids have attended private church school for most of their life, I did a lot of research in regards to different public school options before enrolling them at Literacy First and I feel the school has met and exceeded my expectations. Literacy First keeps up with research and introduces evidence-based practice.
My son started the Cross Fit program this year (7th grade) that LFCS implemented and he and I absolutely love it. At back to school night the coaches explained why they chose this program over the conventional PE program (vollyball, tennis, etc.) that most schools use and it makes alot of sense. It requires ALL students to be accountable for their fitness as it is an individual program. They even encourage the parents to join them in the workout! Thanks for researching and implementing a great program!
This is a nice, small school community where every child is known. Great extra-curricula activities. My child attended one year and had a great time. We were disappointed in the low academics and how how behavoir problems were handled. The principal has made condesending remarks toward parents at events and could have attended more eduational classroom events the kids worked so hard for.
My oldest daughter has been at this school since its inception and I have been pleased more with each passing year. I cannot wait until my four year old gets to go next year nd can benefit from the wonderful education.
My two oldest children have attended this school for the past 2 years. I am so pleased with the results of the schools methods of teaching. Never have I met teachers more dedicated and excited about teaching my children. I highly recommend this school for all types of children. I also have appreciated the dedication the school has to the encouragement of good character and patroitism. So many long term positive effects can come from this focus on good behavior and honoring attitudes.
I LOVE this school! I am heart broken we are moving out of state. This school believes in the importance of educating the children and they do so well. I truly belive as does this school that parental involvement is the key to any childs success in education. I only wish we could continue to grow with this terrific school!! My heartfelt thanks to a truly wonderful principal and teacher staff that genuinely cares about our children. We will miss you!!
The students have much individual attention. Reading at or above grade level is stressed and worked on intensely. Reading is considered the #1 priority because success in all subjects depends on the ability to read well. The teachers are caring and consiencious. They go out of their way to make sure that each student succeeds academically. This is a K-8 school with a waiting list to attend. I highly recommend this school. Students will be well prepared to take the toughest academic courses when they enter high school.
