I have 2 children currently enrolled. One has been attending for 3 years from PK-4 thru first grade. The other for PK-3 and PK-4. Annual tuition for both is roughly $12K. We love this school. It has been a nurturing environment where my children have thrived. At first I was a bit put off by the fact that the school went through 12th grade. It was odd for my kids to attend pep rallies and have friendships with teens and tweens. However, I have changed my mind about this. It's wonderful to have 3rd grader mentor my kids through the reading buddy program or 9th graders helping them with their lunch. Having said that, I am not saying that typical childhood stuff does not happen. Kids are still kids. Four year olds still say they are not your friend, or days when we don't like something another child said in anger during a game. But these are childhood issues. Not unusual behavior problems. I find the parents are very involved volunteers. In fact I've been turned away a few times because they had all the help they needed. In short, I'm very happy with our experience and intend to continue here for as long as my budget permits it.

I am torn in writing a review. The academics have been a plus but the staff does not take a stand when it comes to bullying and it is happening everyday. The students are not held accountable on their walk with the Lord and what that should look like in their behavior towards others. The tuition is extremely high and we are looking at other options for high school, although Rockford is limited in choices.

I've had one son graduate from Christian Life and 3 other children currently enrolled. They have the best teachers around and are involved in the kids' lives, its a ministry to them, not a job. Honors classes are offered in the HS and I feel they do a great job preparing them for college or whatever life after HS brings. Its nice to have a faculty that is morally on the same page as I am. We don't go to church there and find the diversity of the student body to be a great environment for our kids to grow up in.

My son attends this school and I am very happy with it. He is in kindergarten the classes are small and he has a great relationship with his teacher and principal. They have a great ciriculum and set great morals for children to follow.

Christian Life School provides its students with superior educational, emotional, and spiritual growth. The faculty is amazing and spends the extra time to give each student the direction they need.

We were skeptical about the quality of the academics and the level of christian interaction between teachers and students. After one year of our son going through Freshman year we are enthusiastic about Christian Life. We have also, happily, started our 6th grade daughter and look forward great things for our children.

The education at Christian Life School is outstanding. However, the kids are very mean spirited. You would think the kids would have more respect for others well, they don't. They need to have a class on how to treat minorities kids. I find it so disturbing that in this day and age are kids have to subject themselves to racial ridicules. As Christian let's teach our kids how to respect every nationality. I know a lot of this behavior is learned at home. So let's also, get the parents involved. For goodness sakes Christian Life live up to your name!

Both daughter & son attended (& graduated) from pre school thru 12th grade. They loved it & so do we!! Can't wait for our grandkids to enroll. I would recommend this--great, wonderful, caring & loving teachers who relate to your kid as an individual.

Christian Life Schools is a pre-K through 12th grade all on one campus school. All one campus is wonderful. I know many of the teachers and know that they teach at Christian Life because they love teaching there, love the students, love the staff, and love God. For our family, the tuition is well worth the strong academics, offering of courses, and encouraging atmosphere. I also notice more parent involvement than in typical in many public schools. Overall, I am quite pleased and will continue to send my children to Christian Life.

My on has been attending Chrisitan Life School in Rockford Illinois for approx. 8 months now. I as a parent am very happy and excited about the academics of this school. He enjoys going. Has art on Fridays. Music once a week, which turned into his first musical there for the year. Chapel is every Wednesday for an hour. One bilbe verse every week, that they are required to remember and receit for the teacher. Excellent one on one with the teachers as well. All of the teachers truly enjoy their job, and believe in the way their teaching these kids. It shows on all of their faces too! These children are polite, they exercise their manners because they are taught respect for others and themseleves. They get this from the teachers, and their parents who are willing to pay for this nourishing environment. It definately gets my recommendation.!

All four of my children attend Christian Life Schools and love their school and their teachers. They are being taught in a strong Christian environment by a dedicated and caring staff. It is a wonderful and safe environment in which to learn.
