We were looking for a safe, structured, family-oriented school that focused on academics with a strong and diverse curriculum as well as one that would help us incorporate Christianity into our son's life. A school with academic excellence that would also strengthen his morals, values and character. We've found it here at LBES. We feared there would be such a big adjustment from his preschool, with 4 times as many students. But he quickly adapted and looks forward to school everyday. When asked how he likes his new school, his reply, "I love my new school! Can I stay at Lanakila til college?" What more can we ask for? He's happy, thriving and amazing us everyday with all that he is learning not just core subjects but Art, Music, Computer & Japanese in Kindergarten! We love the personal attention he gets with the small class size and the special relationship we've already formed with other parents and his Teacher and Principal. They genuinely care about each and every student.

We chose this school over several larger and more expensive schools mainly because of its small class sizes, fabulous curriculum and teachers. The building itself is old but well cared for and clean. We love that all teachers take the time to personally know both parents and children names even if they are not teaching that child. The love and genuine care for your child's education is abundantly clear from day one. I have had both my boys at Lanakila since Kindergarten and we are very pleased as they both have tested EXCEPTIONALLY well on SATS. They introduce this at Kidnergarten so your child is well prepared for testing on a national level from a young age. I have recommended this school to many friends and they too are happy with the academics and care this school supplies. For a small school they sure do offer alot of after school activiites such as Basketball, Piano, Computer and Tempo Karate, along with great after school care..... Way to go Lanakila Warriors!

This is my son's second year at Lanakila Baptist. He started in Kindergarten. It is a small Christian School, which we like. I would have to say that my son is thriving in his studies. I feel the teacher-to-student ratio helps a great deal. He loves going to school and gets very excited with the subjects being taught. He comes home excited to share with us about his day in school; and assignments to be completed. The staffs are very caring. The parents are also very friendly. If you are looking for a small Christian School with caring staffs, where your child will thrive. This school is a perfect fit.

Lanakila Baptist is a great school to place your child in. If you are looking for a low student to teacher ratio and small school atmosphere you will find it here. At Lanakila the teachers really care about the students and the curriculum is great. According to the Standford Achievement Tests. Lanakila Baptist Schools scored 1 to 2 years above their grade level. I was amazed. When I placed my child in this school I couldn't believe that the Kindergarteners were writing in cursive and reading. The Mathematics curriculum is challenging and fun and my third grader came home with what looked to me like elementary algebra. That right there showed me the educational pace that has been set. Sincerely, Very Pleased!

Our son attends this school (2nd grade) and we are very impressed with the school overall. The class sizes are small...2nd grade is the biggest class with 22 students. The teachers know all of the children in the school and they genuinely care for them. The school uses the ABeka curriculum and has very high standards for academics and behavior. The emphasis on Christian character is strong and exemplary. Students are expected to memorize scripture and apply it to their school experiences.
