I was recommended very highly of this school. However, the outcome was different. The students are bully by other children and administration does not do anything to deal with the problem. They cover things and do not do anything. My child was miserable in this school coming home crying . Parent's find another school for your children the teachers are not even certified to teach children except for the 4th and 5th grade teachers.

Both of my children attended this school and are now in high school and college. The academic work is thorough and challenges students academically, so they leave with an excellent basis in the basics of education (reading, writing, grammar, mathematics). Both of my students now excel in the schools they have gone on to attend and indicate the wonderful academic and spiritual base acquired at Faith Lutheran has been a big reason for their current success. Their faculty and staff are caring and considerate and it is truly a family-oriented school where your student is a person and not just another number.

I have two boys at Faith Lutheran school. My oldest now in 5th grade started in kindergarten and loves the school. Him and most of his classmates have been together since kindergarten. My youngest now in 2nd grade started in Pre-K 4 and he also has been with most of his classmates since then. They boy enjoy how close the students are with each other and how everyone treats each other like family. I especially enjoy how safe they are and the education that they are getting. All of the students are wonderful from the youngest to the oldest and they all take care of each. The staff is awesome and caring and they are always willing to answer all of the questions that the parents have. I'm very happy to have made the right choice in putting my boys at this school.

My son has been a student for 2 years. He is challenged academically and is thought in a faith based environment. Children are very respectful and it is a safe, close knit environment with small classroom sizes. I also wished that they went through high school!

My Son has been attending Faith Lutheran School in Hialeah going on 5 years now. It is an amazing school with a tough curriculum. The faculty and staff are top rate and the students are great. Parents are required to Volunteer 5 hours per quarter but this is a very little volunteer requirements compared to charter schools & other private schools. My biggest frustration is that the school only goes up to 8th Grade. I m struggling to find a High School with a comparable program that will continue to challenge my child.

My daughter has been at this school for three years and I have never been happier with my daughter's education. This is an excellent school. My wish is that there were more scholarship opportunities for the private sector so my daughter can continue at such a great school. Also I have never seen any rodents at this school nor has my child ever been sick due to the school. Its is kept immaculate. Esther Hernandez, Parent & Teacher in the public sector

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.
