One of the greatest decisions I have made, was sending my son to this school. The knowledge he has gained is remarkable. His social/emotional growth is astounding as well. I'm pleased with the faculty and facility and am looking forward to several more years at faith Lutheran.
This has been a great preschool and kindergarten for our family. The teachers are very caring and the small classroom sizes have been greatly beneficial. We are excited for another great year.
I love Faith Lutheran School & Lambs of Faith Preschool!! We have a three year old child in preschool and a soon to be 3th grader in the school. We have had a great experience with both. The preschool teachers are so warm and loving with the children while teaching them the love of Jesus and preparing them for kindergarten. The director is wonderful and very positive. Love the school staff. There have been many changes over the last few years, but our family feels they are positive changes for our children. We feel the children have a strong academic foundation. I highly recommend both!
Hello, We did not favor Faith Lutheran. The tuition was very high, and we didn't get much in return. We will not be coming back next year. I was one of the students here, and I have felt somehow misunderstood from both the teachers and principle. The middle school numbers are very low and some of the teachers just rush the kid through the school year. They don't review, go over, or classify the main detail to make sure the kid's understand it. Truthfully, I have learned more in a public school than in this institute. The school is a waste of time and is like putting your child on a boat without a captain. No leadership, lack of dignity, and no trust what-so-ever. I hope this message can help the next few kids who come here. They have no understanding for the kids. It seems they are just looking for that $625.00 every month. To add to this, they looked at the things the kids don't do and don't look at the things they do do.
We have been a member of this school since preK. We are leaving!!!!!!! We pay a great deal of money for our child to attend school here and it took us a long time, too long to realize for what??!! Nothing!!!! Academics are low. Technology is non existent. No foreign language. Poor leadership. And the worst customer service and communication! We registered in the spring for this fall. And since then my sons teacher has quit. And the principal has changed for the 3rd time in 3 years. When we asked for our registration fee back the new principal said unequivocally NOWAY!!!!!! just reinforcing my decision. There is in dialogue no customer satisfaction. If you're paying big bucks you want to be treated as such.
The worst !!!!!!! We attended for 4 years. The first years were amazing. However; since then it has gone increasingly downhill ever since. 3 Principal changes in three years. Teachers being fired and quitting. Since registering for the next grade for fall my childs teacher has quit and there is a new principal. There is no foreign language. Nothing exceptional. Not even any fun at this school. I would in no way shape or form recommend this school to anyone thinking about attending here.
We have had enough!! We are moving on. FLS is now on its 4th principal in 6 years. At least 4 summers in a row with teachers unexpectedly being fired/forced to resign/forced to retire, and teacher contracts not being renewed. The best thing about this school has always been the teachers. Well, if you get rid of them all, it is not going to be a very good school. What going on with the leadership?!? I wish FLS could get its act together. We have stayed longer than we should have, due to wishful thinking. It is just not worth it anymore.
I am so sad and mad. This used to be such a great school, with a wonderful sense of community and family. The teachers here are wonderful!! But they keep getting fired. It seems like the "leadership" has been systematically destroying the school over the last few years. Families are leaving in droves. The middle school only had 5-7 kids per class this past year. How small will it be next year? I can not send my child to a middle school that is so small, and with so much turmoil and turnover. Middle school is hard enough as it is, without drama coming from the administration! We will start our search for a new school, but I miss the old Faith Lutheran.
Charter schools offer a better education than this school. Music program is a joke, administration is the worst, every year this school fails to enroll. If it was a great school it would show by numbers. We pay more money for sports outside of this school because of who is running the program. So many staff changes in so few years. Don't get me started on the Pre-school! Why can the new director not keep staff? This school does not want parents to help just the money. So many great Charter schools I would run away from this school. So very glad it's our last year.
Faith Lutheran School has been a saving grace for my children. We were referred to Lambs of Faith Preschool by three of our neighbors. After much prayer, research, and touring of other schools, we were confident that Lambs of Faith was the best place for our family. My children have since gone on to Faith Lutheran Elementary where they continue to grow in their Christian faith, academics, and athletics. The administration cares and listens to the needs and wants of parents. The teachers constantly strive to challenge children to their full potential. We love the church as well and recently were baptized and became church members. If you want the very best for your children and family look no further than Faith Lutheran Church and Schools.
This school is like placing your child on a boat with out a capitan. Lacks lidership, unity, costumer service and therefore you feel like no one really cares about your parental imput. If you are not " to strict of a christian" this is good for you! They will give sugar treats often, will celebrate Halloween, have ash Wednesday like catholics and way more !! By the way if not too uncomfortable the Lutheran church will have a funeral and all related to it when your children are having lunch!
Disappointing... Parents are not sure what the school administration and church are doing. Most of the teachers are still great though. If they don't start to turn things around, not sure if we will stay.
Faith Lutheran School was great for my daughter. The year after she left, they fired two of their most experienced teachers (including my daughter's favorite) without reason., and in violation of their own written procedures.
Love, love, love Faith Lutheran School and Preschool. Our family was referred to Lambs of Faith Preschool by four different families. I toured several schools in the area and not one measured up to Lambs of Faith Preschool. My children are now attending the elementary school and are excelling in all areas. If you want the very best for your children, look at Lambs of Faith and Faith Lutheran Elementary and Middle Schools. You will never go anywhere else.
Low class sizes and this school has been around for years. We just felt there was so many negatives. Campared it to other private schools in the area that can offer more loved Grace Lutheran just a drive from Oceanside but the Pastor was very warm never met anyone from the Church at this school while we were there.
I can not say enough wonderful things about the teaching staff and the school. Thank you to all that work and help out at this school. Great education and enviornment for the children who attend
Our family has been attending LOF/FLS since 2004 and then became members of the church. The environment is THERE for my children. Teachers, staff and academics. Though this school is not perfect (nor am I or the world) but it is a work in progress. It has improved the math program recently and has an in-school tutoring program for reading. Our school also offers computer, physical education and music to all students K-8 during the normal school hours at no extra costs.
Our family loves FLS. My children have attended LOF/FLS since preschool. The staff is respectful, nurturing, and above all well qualified to teach. The personal attention that each teacher brings into her classroom and the excitement for learning shows in all grades. I think the new principal has been a wonderful bonus to FLS bringing excitement, joy of learning, and love for Christ into the aspects of the job. I feel comfortable to leave my children in the care of everyone at FLS and I know the education is impeccable. The only draw back to FLS is the enrollment but the small class sizes is an awesome opportunity for the children to get one on one education. The school has so much to offer our community.
Compared to public schools and other schools in the area, Faith Lutheran is quite superior. Unfortunetely people use this site inappropriately. It is disappointing that a parent enrolled in a Christian school would not follow Christian standards when framing a complaint about the school. Check the school out. You will find that the curriculum is superior as well as the extra curricular programs. The school just completed an accreditation that proves the excellence of the school and staff. (The accreditation process is conducted by the state of California, not internally) Check the teachers/administration degrees and credentials. Don't believe a person that has an axe to grind. Come in for a tour, speak to the board of education, talk to the PTL. Check it out for yourself, you won't be sorry you did. You will find that Faith Lutheran School is an excellent choice for your child.
If you are really in the market for an excellent school you need to check out Faith Lutheran. Don't be swayed by a comment from someone that may have had some sort of bad experience. This school just completed an accreditation process by Western Association of Schools and Colleges. A school does not receive accreditation if the programs are below par and the teachers are not qualified to teach. Like one parent said below, Faith is constantly looking for ways to improve and add to their programs. Faith focuses on things that matter, academics and belief in Jesus Christ. Do your child a favor and check out this school. I know you will not regret what you find.
