Great Christian based school. Great staff and teachers. Smaller focused classrooms. Its nice to see that the school I grew up in although has made many changes -- has not changed is core value of Christ-centered education.
They do an awesome job of educating the children. Their C rating is misleading as the kids ISTEP scores are high with a near 100% passing rate. The teachers take the time to help students who are struggling and the parents are well informed. The principal knows the kids by name and most of the families.
Great Christian school, with a focus on Jesus Christ. Great communication with teachers. Reading and Math is a big focus. Church members do not pay tuition. Non church members pay. This should be evened out.
Our child attended Suburban Bethlehem Lutheran school in 6-8 grades. I found the quality of education second to none as reflected in the outstanding performance on the ISTEP test year after year. Check for yourself. Even more, the caring and loving atmosphere made it a great place for our child.
My children went to Suburban Bethlehem. The teaching is antiquated in english and math. My wife had to explain the math homework to each of my children every night. Talking to the teachers or administration did not help. I would never recommend this school to anyone. Fifth grade and below are not bad, however 6th-8th grade fall far below the norm. I do pray the school becomes enlightened.
