We started our oldest child at Cross of Glory for Preschool and had no intentions to stay (we were planning on public school for our children). We have been so happy we have stayed. Our oldest is now in 8th Grade. We also have a 5th grader at Cross of Glory and plan to send our youngest to Preschool in the Fall. The school has a wonderful family environment. God is at the center of their education. The teachers work hard to meet the needs of each student, and they encourage each one to work to their best ability. We LOVE Cross of Glory!
The teachers make it a point to work with the students to teach them to be fair and honest, they especially work hard to instill good Christian values and to teach the students about forgiveness, and getting along.
This school has no guide lines in teaching. The students are NOT being taught what they need to know to prepare them for college. PLEASE CHECK AROUND BEFORE YOU CHOOSE THIS SCHOOL!!!!This school needs to get with the times.
We heard good and bad about this school before we enrolled but we thought the initial interview went well so we ended up enrolling our child. Now I have to say DONT be fooled, especially about the misleading reviews posted here! MANY issues go unresolved because problems are ignored or buried. My child told me many days they don't even get to all their subjects because 1 teacher, teaches all 4 grades in 1 classroom. Some major subjects they only hold class roughly ONCE A MONTH! God IS important in our lives, but SO is my childs education. Find a school that meets state requirements with a curriculum that will be followed. The staff is all related to each other, which created many problems in itself. Keep looking; plenty of real Christian schools in the area.
Cross of Glory is a very special school to our family. The teachers care about each child's needs and they learn what is most important, the Bible and our Savior. My children love attending Cross of Glory!
We love Cross of Glory Lutheran school! Our son has gone there since Kindergarten and is 2nd grade there, now. Our daughter is in her second year of preschool at Cross of Glory. I cannot say enough good things about the teachers and atmosphere at this school. Christ is the center of every day and my children are flourishing under the care of these excellent Christian teachers. We drive 20 miles one way to send our children to this school. The high of my son's days are usually the math facts that he learned that day. He has fun learning at Cross of Glory!
We were enormously disappointed with this school. After a month attending our child would cry every morning begging to stay home with my wife. We thought this was merely child/mother separation anxiety but after several months we received a phone call from another child s parent informing us the teacher not only showed no compassion to the special medical needs of our child but was excessively harsh and yelled loudly many many times at our child. We did not understand how this could be in a Christian school and we asked to meet with the school s principal although he seemed unaware what was happening in the classrooms and recess time. The teacher refuted claims of mistreatment or being prejudice but recommended our child repeat her class in the following year. However we immediately removed our child and enrolled in another Christian school. Our child is no longer afraid of the teacher and we thank God that a concerned parent made us aware of the poor situation at this school. Fortunately the new school worked with our child so repeating Kindergarten was not necessary. Today our child loves going to school to learn about God and has progressed immensely academically.
