Lansing Christian has been a wonderful school for my kids. Everyone of their teachers have been wonderful christian examples for them. They complete what we teach them at home and what they learn at church by going to Lansing Christian. I love sending them to Lansing Christian!

Lansing Christian School is an awesome environment where children Pre K - 8 can learn all state accredited subjects with a Christ focused and Biblical point of view. The things I love most about LCS are the very caring teachers who love to work as a team with the parent, the high standard of work and behavior expected from the students and the amount of volunteers that step forward to run all the extra curricular activities and fund raisers. The school continues to improve in technology classes and communication with it's constituents. This is a great place to educate a child of God.

My kids attend Lansing Christian School. It is a wonderful school with dedicated Christian teachers who really care about the students in which they teach. All of its courses are based around a Christ-centered education. The faculty and staff are dedicated to the students and work closely with the parents. I would highly recommend this school.

As a quality, Christian grade school. It requires children to work diligently. Teachers know their students, and really care about them. It offers so much for the children, from art, to music, p.e., band, sports, and choir as well as school musicals and programs. The community of parents and grandparents stand strong behind the faculty and staff.

This school shares our family's values which is very important to us. Tuition is a fair price when considering the investment that we are making into our children's lives.

My son currently attends Lansing Christian School. If you're looking for a school that provides a great academic and awesome Christian education, I would highly recommend this one. The students are allowed to be children and yet learn at the same time. From Spanish, Art, Music, Sports, Computer, Gym, this school has so much to offer. And the teachers are so caring. And, parents are encouraged to be involved.

Lansing Christian provides a great academic and religious education for all children. The teachers and administrators are amazing. My child began attending LCS in preschool and he is now in Kindergarten. We are so pleased with everything, academic and religious instruction, music, computer, gym, and Spanish. The Kindergarten teachers have so many years of experience, they are absolutely incredible.

My children just started attending Lansing Christian in 2006. They were in 6th and 8th grade. How I wish we had started them here. The principle and teachers are excellent. The parent involvement is great. This school is well worth the cost.

I went to Lansing Christian School from Kindergarten through 8th grade. It was a wonderful experience! I graduated in 1993 and most of my family went there or is currently attending. When I have children I hope to find a school such as this. The eduation and the spiritual guidance prepared me for life. I could not say enough about my gratitude to the school and my parents for sending my brother and me there.

I have 3 children currently attending Lansing Christian, and I just can't say enough about the school. The teachers have a true Christian love and concern for the children. The Parents are extemely involved. The curriculim centers around Christ. I am so pleased with this school.

I am grateful that our three children were all able to attend Lansing Christian School. It is a wonderful school with a dedicated faculty and staff. The school is big enough to have excellent extra curricular activities, yet small enough so every student can feel special. Students are treated with respect and love. I am a teacher in the public school system and every day I see the difference between the public schools and Lansing Christian. We have spent a lot on tuition, but the Lord has always provided, and we have always felt it was well worth it.

The teachers and staff here are so caring! My son attended from 1st through 8th grade and I feel he got a well rounded education. I was often impressed with what he was learning and am impressed with the school's dedication to the kids, their families and good education. I highly recommend it.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
