My husband and I have had a wonderful experience at LIS. The small class sizes have led to close and lasting friendships not only between the children but between parents also. It has been a comfort to know the other parents and to feel that your kids are safe when visiting. LIS does a great job of providing opportunities for the parents and kids to interact; sports, spelling bee, family fun nights, science fair, art weekends etc.

Our school is one of the best around. High in academic achievement, great social environment, wonderful and caring teachers, and small class room sizes. Having God in our families lives is very important in today's society and always.

This is a great school with small classes that allow one on one contact between student and teacher.

LIS is the best school EVER! Giving your children a Christian Education and being able to pray in school is priceless! I would not have it any other way for my children while they are young. You are able to start off with an awesome Preschool Program with a very loving and positive teacher! Then to move into K-8th grades with great teachers and staff members. While in 5th grade the students are able to start participating in sports, with great coaches that help teach them all the fundamentals they need to know to be successful. LIS thrives on volunteers, parents and others that give everything from their hearts and more! We are so truly blessed to be able to send our children to such a marvelous school!

This is a wonderfully small school with a great staff who give the kids lots of good one on one attention. And then to add in the awesome christian influence and christian education makes this just about the perfect place to have your kids learn. The only down side would be the small town mind set and fueding families that do still exist here, but it's worth dealing with to give your kids such a great education.

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.
