Both of my children attended LGCS and loved their time here. They graduated from the school ready to take on high school in every way - academically, socially, and spiritually. The staff and teachers truly care about the students and their families. LGCS is a great school.
Suspicious that the parent for the 1 star review posted it several times. Should be a limit of one review. Dont be upset if you have dilusions about your own child. She is the bully, not the others. Hard pill to swallow, I'm certain. Good luck wherever you went. Looks like you will need lots of it.
2nd yr & increasingly pleased. Academics a priority for us so cautiously optimistic trying for a yr. Small classes, wonderful, (not just mediocre) learning environment that nurtured character [i.e. respect, manners, dependability, hard work, honesty, kindness,etc], encouraged creativity, love for learning & FUN were priorities! Art, diversity, exp to languages, community that could grow up together & face ups/downs of life together, were hopefuls. Academics are there opps to 'take on more'. VanderBaan is accessible & proven integrity as we continue to see fruition of areas recognized as development & "in the works". Teachers have been fantastic! Felberg is fabulous. Creates fun learning environment, responsibility, dependability, expectations very clear(strict), her consistency admired. Great prep for life. Art teacher, Evans wonderfully creative. Tech teacher Brown makes learning fun! Pimentel, music, is so gifted, an amazing benefit. Beautiful campus, warm, friendly staff creates positive learning environment. Happy our child has already had incredible teachers that impact outlook on learning. We feel privileged to attend, great foundation happy childhood memories are being made.
My kids have been in attendance at this school for 2 years now and we are very happy! I feel completely at ease after dropping off my children knowing that they're loved, nurtured, and challenged academically. I also love the Christ-centered focus which in turn develops the students' morale and character to reflect an attitude and perspective that's humble and other-centered. This school gives each student a head start by providing cutting-edge curriculum, state-of-the art technology center and a well-rounded approach to music and arts. The school has been in service for many years which is a testament in and of itself with staff & administration dedicated to each student and family. They know each child on a first-name basis and it feels like an extended family. I just don't have enough positive things to say other than we are so very grateful that our children get to take part in the experience at LGCS.
My kids have been attending Los Gatos Christian School for about 4 years, and we are very happy with the school. It has a great set of teachers, all very well qualified and accredited. The staff is very caring and attentive. They offer small classes, a very strong and well rounded curriculum going from Math above grade level, well-equipped computer lab to an excellent music and arts programs. They also offer series on-site extra curricular activities that are great for working parents like myself who need to use their after school program. We visited several schools in the South Bay Area, and by far believe that LGCS offers the best well rounded education that we want to offer to our children.
My son was in LGCS from 3rd to 6th grade. Like other schools in the transition of modern technology, the school takes up many challenges. The teachers work harder than ever to adapt to the new web system. What has not changed is that the teachers still try hard to instill Christ-like manners and high moral value into the children. The atmosphere of kids helping each other like a family is strong. When we encountered some issues, the school promptly met with us trying to resolve the problem. Our son is academically gifted, so he was encouraged to compete in the spelling bee, math Olympics and science fair. He was, however, also encouraged to participate in sports despite of his weak athletic skills. He grew as a whole person not just based on his academic excellence, for which I ll forever feel grateful. Having a son holding strong interest in math and science, I agree that the school should improve their science program to attract the kids impassioned for science. But, disagreeing with some previous comments, I believe that most academics match private school requirements, and the school is willing to provide challenges for those requesting them.
Academics is not good anymore. Still lags behind on applying maths, science and technology. Some of the teachers are exceptional and some just need to leave. School days are a lot lesser than other schools. IMO, new principal tried, but I'm not sure about the board. I am ready to take both of my children out next year. They don't seem to listen to the feedback given by the parents. There is a huge gap in children performance. If academics are lagging behind, nothing else matter. Not recommended.
LGCS has gone down the drain in the last few years. Teachers are overworked. Teacher's aides were fired. At least 3 principals in the last 3-4 years. They have switched syllabus without asking parent's permission. English grammar is poor here.No music,no second language. Money is being conserved and students are bearing the brunt. Why go to a private school if your child is not getting anything out of it. Church missions are being handed down to the school and kids come home with donation slips. No way am I donating to charities that I do not know of. In this day and age, I cannot believe they are trying to do this. They run a world fair to get donations for their sports equipment ! I am surprised why student tuition does not cover for that. If they can pass missions off to school students. Raise money from the church for sports equipment. There is no christian attitude here,a lot of bullying in this school which administration tries to sweep under the rug. If your child has a concept that they are not grasping,no help is offered. Have u noticed,for every bad review,someone posts a 5 star review(real suspicious. Not a school that develops character .
LGCS is a wonderful school. The teachers are dedicated and loving and there is a nice community of families here. This school is high in academics and offers wonderful extras like technology, art, and music. My daughter attended here from Jr. K-8 grade and was well prepared for high school. This school not only prepared her academically, but helped build Christian character as well. My son is in middle school and really enjoys the sports program they offer. If you are looking for smaller class sizes, caring teachers, and a Christian environment, LGCS is the place for you!
