I have been here at Water of Life Christian School for over 3 years. I have seen quite alot of changes. All of these being improvements. We have added quite a few extra curricular activities such as a computer lab, a PE program, an Art class, a Spanish class, a Music class, and now a Library. We also have after school programs like tutoring, guitar lessons, and choir. The school administrator, Arden is very understanding and is doing a great job. I also appreciate the detail to instruction and care that the staff shows the children. It is truly a blessing to work for such a wonderful school.

Quite honestly, I can't imagine a better place to educate my children! There is a caring and supportive staff at every point in their lives. There is safety and security for them here to learn and grow. I hope that God sees fit to bless the school with a 6th grade. I know that the stronger spiritual foundation my children have as well as a strong academic footing, they will be prepared to meet the challenges of their continuing education and walk with the Lord. The financial sacrifice is minimal compared to the priceless instruction from Bible to's all here. Why would anyone want to go anywhere else?

We have been at Water of Life for five years and we love it! Our daughter has been attending since Kindergarten and is now in 4th grade. We love the small school atmosphere where everyone knows each other. Our principal, Arden is amazing. The staff is wonderful and they truly care a great deal for our kids.

We have two children at Water of Life Christian School. One in third and one in first grade. Both of them started the the elementary program in kindergarten and one started in pre-k. It's been great to see the school grow and progress over our 4 years there. There are several things that we really like about this School. First, our kids are growing weekly in their understanding of God's word. Second, The Principle and Staff are excellent. They really care about the kids spiritual, academic and physical needs. Finally, the school and staff have an attitude that they should always be growing and improving. This school has a lot to offer if you want to make sure your child gets off to a strong start in life. Their prices are great for private education who ranks high in the SAT national testing.

Contrary to the other opinions posted here,I've been very pleased with Water of Life Christian School. Their academic program is excellent and exceeds state standards. They have awesome showcases of academic abilities through their spelling bees, speech meets, and math Olympics. They have wonderful extra-curricular subjects such as art, Spanish, and PE. To top it all off, their loving and nurturing atmosphere is a testimony to their Biblical emphasis on all areas of study. The parental involvement is awesome too! The staff does not have a high turn-over ratio. Although it is a small, young school (7 years old), I think it is on the road to success!

I was very disappointed that I spent a lot of money thinking I was getting my kids ahead. No sports programs or academic summer school available. Lots of parent involvement.

A lot of fundraisers. Only offers k-3rd at this time. Nice atmosphere.High teacher turnover. High religion focus and less on academics.

Great kids! Small classroom sizes! The director needs to work on some issues.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
