This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
My kids go to CLS. They have been there since preschool. They love it there. They have good friends and like their teachers. The higher grades are a concern. If you transfer from a public junior high school, get ready to be stressed! They do not practice "grace" or "forgiveness" when it comes to grades. You get an incomplete on assignments for not turning in on time, skipping a question, not reading the directions correctly, not putting your name on your paper, talking too much in class while working on a paper, etc. etc. My kids get good grades but they are under a lot of stress. It is difficult watching they try to cope with the stress and all the pressure. No room for mistakes. Your kid can have an A and then forget their book, get an incomplete and their grade drops! It is so sad to robe a good kid of joy. It is extremely difficult on the parents because they treat your kids like there are in college. They are just kids! High school should be a breeze.
Yes and no. They are good teachers but grading is super strict. Today, my daughter missed one out of 5 questions on a test. She received 80% dropping her A grade to an A-. My daughter feels horrible for "missing one on the test" and dropping her overall grade in the class. I can't imagine how the other kids feel missing two or more!
We have the best of all worlds at Christ Lutheran. High academic and character standards combined with the most heart-warming, loving environment makes this the ideal setting for my young children (and me!)
