My daughter attended Faith Lutheran from age 2 through Kindergarten. As a parent, the atmosphere was perfect. I as well as my daughter was greeted by name when we walked in the door and when I called, it was the same. The teachers were caring and nurturing and I will always cherish the time that she spent there. Awesome program!
Fantastic teachers in a Christian environment. Discounts and scholarships, opportunities for public service, and staff that really, truly care about our kids! We are so glad to have found this school!!
My wife and I each attended private schools and our children have attended private schools for years. We changed to Faith Lutheran because their previous school was all about appearances but the substance was very lacking. Faith Lutheran does not have the best physical plant, that's obvious, but they have the most dedicated and caring teachers we have ever encountered. Every single adult seems focused on bringing the best to every encounter with the children. It's a small Lutheran school with a big heart. Go and meet the people, I think you will be impressed.
Clean, friendly, caring school--outstanding in all respects! We are in the PreK program and absolutely love it. My child has had excellent religious as well as academic instruction. I love the units they've studied this year--they extend the curriculum beyond reading preparation to science experiments and more. The student population is racially diverse, which I like, and the teachers are well-trained. The principal is very involved and greets my child every day. My child has learned so much and is VERY happy here.
What a blessing this school is to my children and family! My children have grown so much in both their academics and their willingness to reach out and help others. The wonderful teachers and staff know the children and call them by name. The smiles I see on the faces of the students when I'm there tells me they're happy and doing well. I've also watched friends' children graduate and go on to magnet programs and other elite private schools, doing well and continuing to excel at all their endeavors. Obviously, they've got the challenging academics to encourage the students to do their best. And, when my children do have problems, the teachers and staff are always ready to help. The school also teaches and enables the students to reach out to others in the community. Together the students and families put together EVERYTHING needed for a refugee family to come live in the area. With the recent tornadoes in the southeast, the students came up with the idea of "selling" no-uniform days to raise money to send to help others' recovery; the administration immediately "ok-ed" the plan. What wonderful support! This is truly the best place in East Cobb for families!
The class sizes are small, less that 20 kids which is good. If you are religious your child will get that.............but the school needs to improve their academics. There are public schools in the area with better curriculum/academics. Very few extra curricular activities. If you want your child in a small setting this is a good option. If you want your child to be well prepared academically keep looking!!!!!
Didn't get the stars in the last review! Must add that I have not noticed any parent cliques with involvement ever.
What a wonderful school. FLS has all of the right ingredients - longtime teachers who truly strive to bring out the best in each individual child; a staff who genuinely care about the well being of every family; a relatively new (the school has been in operation for 50 years) classroom facility, new playground and soon, a new playing field. The school offers a before/after school program and camps that work well for working parents. Spanish & computer class are introduced in kindergarten and sports and music programs are offered throughout the school year. FLS is a close knit school that cultivates (and expects) good behavior, community service and high achievement. We could not be happier with our experience and hope to keep our children at FLS through 8th grade.
We love this school! Our daughter has thrived academically,socially and most of all in her love for Christ and respect for others. Teachers are great,principal is great! well worth the investment!
Two Thumbs up !! This is the best School ever. My sons personality and grades greatly improved since we enrolled here. I would not change a thing. At FLS it is all about the Kids, thank you teachers and Staff.
The overall quality of this school is outstanding. All the grade level teachers have their Georgia certifications. The class sizes are small which enables the teachers to offer quality time with each student. The principal has only been there two years but he is a real people person. He welcomes students and parents to talk to him. He knows every child by name - even the early childhood students. The school now offers a competitive sports program after school hours for students in grades 5-8. They play against teams from other private schools in the area. The school offers several choirs - including a chime choir. This year we look forward to adding handbell choirs as well. They also have a growing band program. The parents are welcomed to be involved. The school has a very active Parent-Teacher League which offers various activities for families during the year.
My oldest child attended Faith Lutheran School for 4 years. The Clique factor is a large part of the parent involvement. Everyone is welcome to sign up on the volunteer sheet but only the core (the same select few) actually do the activities. The level of education my child received was of overall good quality. The art and PE were inadequate. No extracirricular activities were in place when we attended but were proposed. When an incident involving poor supervision and subsequent injury of my child arose, they handled the situation extremely poorly. They DO have a new principal since we have gone and that might have changed somethings since we've left.
When your child goes there for the 1st year everyone will make you feel welcomed. It was nice to have a school that loves all the children in the school. I was so taken by the school that my oldest child has been there for five years and will stay there until the 8th grade.
