We really love Lansing Christian! Our oldest daughter just graduated after 13 years at LCS and she has come back to thank her teachers for how well prepared she was for college. Our other 2 children are enjoying their high school years there and are so grateful for the positive atmosphere and excellent academics! Their is consistency and reinforcement for students as teachers partner with parents. We are grateful for the christian values and like-mindness. Their is great support and encouragement to do your best whether it is in academics or athletics, student senate or science olympia. There is so much to choose from. Please come and see for yourself!
We love this school! Our kids have gone since kindergarten. The teachers have been WONDERFUL. They are excellent at their jobs and they truly care about each of their students. We love how they integrate a Biblical worldview into every subject. The kids participate in chapel leadership and serve in the community through the school as well. Perfect size classes as well and parents are quite involved. The principals and school board are always willing to listen to any concerns as well.
We absolutely love this school. My son is in preschool here and he wakes up excited and ready for school! The teachers are so wonderful. They are kind, encouraging and uplifting. Lansing Christian is a blessing to our family and we cannot wait to see what God has in store for my children here.
I absolutely love my school. I have attended Lansing Christian School since Pre-School, and I definitely think that I am prepared for college. Over the course of high school, I have taken 4 years of language classes, 2 AP science classes, AP US History, and AP Calculus. The teachers are incredible and genuinely care about the well-being of the students. I am very close with almost everyone in my class and have made many lifelong friends.
I have attended Lansing Christian since kindergarten and feel so bitter-sweet about my graduation this year (2014). I love my school and feel very ready for college and life, spiritually, intellectually, and socially. My school provides many AP class options, has an excellent choir program, and great athletics. Most teachers bond excellently with students. However, just because it's a Christian school does not mean bullies are not present and, unfortunately, there is favoritism from the disciplinary authorities towards more wealthy families, especially towards the Granger family. This should not discourage you from sending your child(ren) to Lansing Christian. The students are great. All of them. Small class sizes make learning easy and fun. I knew almost every high school student every year of my high school career and had friends in every grade almost every year. I graduated with a class of around 50 students, which is about average. Lansing Christian is pricey, but it's also worth every cent.
My family is so thankful for Lansing Christian School. It is clear the teachers and administrators genuinely care about the students, not just academically, but spiritually as well. I love that my daughter is getting a wonderful education, building her character, and growing in her relationship with Jesus.
The Christian education my children receive here is excellent. The curriculum and teachers are very good. I cannot say enough good things about the fall and spring sports programs for girls.
We have 4 children at Lansing Christian Elementary School, and we have loved our 6 years there! The teachers are absolutely wonderful - they love the students and it shows in their daily interaction with them. We love knowing that what we teach at home is reinforced at school by the teachers, administration and other staff. LCS is a wonderful school!
We have been at LCS for 5 years and can truly say that Christ is at the head of the school. The teachers assist the children in acquiring an internal moral code of behavior based upon the Bible. The curriculum is consistent with the inerrant Word of God and is designed to train the whole child. My three children are thriving academically and have built wonderful relationships with other children of all ages. The school has community building activities to help the families meet one another and the children are encouraged to help new students feel welcome. The school (pre-k thru twelfth grade) is all on one campus and gives great opportunity for the older students to mentor the younger ones occasionally. My favorite is when the 12th grade bible class goes to the kindergarten room to pray together with the kids. The children mature in Christ and are fully equipped to enter the world as young men and women of God.
Missing LCS! Our son just graduated from LCS and we are missing the community of teachers, administrators, students and parents! We are not a family of great wealth, we are not alumni or family of those employed there! We were simply a family looking for a place where our son could get an outstanding education and yet be known personally by his teachers and administrators. We drove 40 mins, one way for two years to get our son to LCS! During his four years he grew tremendously emotionally, acedemically and SPIRITUALLY! He loved his four years at LCS and we can not say enough good about our experience!
We have had amazing experiences at this school. We have 3 students who have developed both intellectually and spiritually as a result of the school and their amazing teachers. My daughter has friends in public school but loves being at Lansing Christian School where she can grow as a Christian and where teachers will work with her to become as successful a student as possible. Upper level students mentor younger students and there are bible studies happening throughout the school. Teachers are vested in the success of the students and are able to provide students tools for living their entire life beyond just the basic academics. We love being a part of the Lansing Christian School Community.
Have experienced this school from pre-school to High School and found a caring community with high academic standards. There are lots of opportunities for involvement and the students are challenged to excel in every area.
Beware! My son attended preschool and kindergarten at LCS. The school retains kindergarten students at an unusually high rate, with approximately 60% of the children in his class repeating kindergarten. This policy has serious consequences and there is no empirical evidence for retaining children in kindergarten, especially for social and emotional development. Early retention has been associated with increased bullying, and this school definitely has an issue with bullying. The kindergarten teacher recommended my child repeat kindergarten for social and emotional development, despite being cognitively advanced. We decided to move him to first grade, the principal was very passive aggressive warning us that he would probably have to repeat first grade. He began first grade and experienced bullying in class and on the playground (where there is little to no supervision). Furthermore, young children are allowed to play violent video games in the quad before school starts, and you will hear, shoot, shoot, kill. Not Christian at all! Our child now attends a Montessori school where he is clearly above grade level and has no issues with bullying or getting along with others!
The school gets way too involved in the students personnel lives. Also the principal is inexperienced and does not know how to handle delicate situations. the one good thing about the school is the kids, the kids there would do anything for each other.
Unfortunately my child attended middle and high school here. I felt like this school was more a private school than a christian school. I was shocked by what seemed like rampant favoritism as well as the pretense that it wasn't happening! This favoritism wasn't just toward children of big money donors, but also students who had a parent that was a teacher or administrator at the school. Because of the small size of this school this did have a huge impact. It also affected a students ability to fairly participate in sports and extracurricular activities. Many students were just not friendly. As a result, a number of new students tried the school but left. This caused tuition to remain high since the student body did not grow as much as it could have. There were some excellent teachers there but many are gone now. I would not recommend this school. I am surprised at the other ratings.
My son has had a great experience at LCS so far in the two years he's been there. I can't imagine a more supportive, enriching environment for his formative years. He is excited about his faith and was reading as a preschooler - both of which I attribute much of to the great instruction and environment at LCS. And as a parent, I appreciate the supportive Christian community at LCS that I've been able to be a part of.
LCS has first-rate leadership, caring teachers, very involved parents, and academic programs that rival any other school in the area. My kids also enjoy top-notch music and sports programs. We are so happy we found LCS!
As a proud alum and parent of two high schoolers, I can't tell you how much I appreciate the community we have. My children are challenged academically, spirtually, and physically through a wide array of opportunities. Just one look at them and it's obvious how happy they are!
LCS has a great sense of community where students are taught respect for themselves and those around them. The teachers are incredibly dedicated.
We started out thinking we would just send the boys for preschool. Twelve years later they are still here. The teachers are excellent, know each of their students and care about them. The high school offers a good variety of electives, including fine arts and language, in addition to the college prep and AP courses. The student, parents, teachers, and administrators become family -- doing whatever it takes to enable our students to be successful.
