Covenant Life School 5

Hi, I was a little nervous about sending my son to a school where he would be a minority in 9th grade. But because my son is open-minded and makes friend easily, he blended in, and it was a very positive experience. I saw him strive, and especially in the last years of high school become a serious and independent student. He is going to college next fall, and I have very little apprehension. He also got a chance to explore his new found wrestling skills, and competed with a team with an exceptional spirit of camaraderie and resilience. The team made it to a National competition this year. I also saw that some of the teachers genuinely cared, beyond their scope of duties. The school is not very well organized, very often parents find out about events or activities at the last minute. But the administration is improving, I can see a big difference in 4 years. Besides, they are very committed to improve and are open to criticism, and take it into consideration.

Wow, difficult to say! They all work very hard, each one in their position, from the receptionist to the Director. Some teachers were instrumental I think for my son. The wrestling coach, Mr. Leach; the Journalism teacher Mrs. Furnish; the World History teacher Mr. Bronson; the Math teacher Mr. Davis, who turns his classroom into this fun activity... it is really not fair to the other teachers because they all love their jobs and go beyond what is required.

The teachers will first interact with them when there is a problem and try to find a remedy within the school, if not, they will contact you to let you know when there is a problem, and call you for a meeting if it gets out of control.

Some days they are busy, if they plan carefully they should not be surprised. But they need to stay consistent and make sure they do their parts.

I know the wrestling team does that. I have not tried the other team, but that is the spirit in the wrestling team!

yes, it does. They make sure you respect the teachers and your parents. They do all they can on school premises at least. They will have activities where the children get a chance to honor their parents.

Hi, yes, but having the older students work with the younger students. By encouraging a spirit of accountability with the student, and especially giving them responsibility which fosters trust and honesty.

it is a Christian school, it should be in essence. But they were open to explain and share their faith on points where the student disagrees with them. They did not try to muzzle my son on a topic he did not see eye to eye with him, but instead refered him back to the bible.

A parent at Covenant Life School in Gaithersburg, MD, I feel so blessed to have a place for my son to experience the excellent education provided at CLS. The exemplary leadership trickles down from the top! The teachers are wonderful and the students do their best to be kind to each other and encourage each other on their journey.

We have three children at Covenant Life School. We so appreciate the teacher's investing in our children, with smaller classrooms and really getting to know our children. The academics are strong, the spiritual formation is build into the every day in the classroom. The children are comfortable talking about God, and other spiritual aspects of life. So grateful that my children have the freedom to learn about, and worship God in the classroom.
