The principal doesn't have love in her heart and neither does one of her 2nd and 6 grade teachers my children has been there only three days 2nd grder has some trouble with reading and was kicked out of her school. I set up tutoring five days a week she said no wanted to put her back in first grade. I declined so she put them out. God isnt in that school or in her or some of the teachers. God sees everything you all will reap what you sow im a god fearing woman was raised up in church and can honestly say that god isn't in the mist of that school. I know that race played a part in it my kids felt it and i did too. My family and i have given a lot to the lutheran church but it won't happen again. We will never give to a place that will break down the spirit of a child. My child wasn't given a chance in your school for three days and thrown out. But others given tutoring im sure they have something in common and its not being black. I pray that someday the principal and teachers find god and stop promoting racism in your school.
The teachers and principal show great care and concern for the education and success of our children. The school is immaculate, well organized and offers so much more than the public schools. Our family is very happy with the level of education and extra activities that are offered. We are extremely happy with our choice of schools.
Our family couldn't be more pleased with Child of God and what they have done with our three boys. They love going to school. If you are looking for a school that truly cares about your children, this is the place. It is a wonderful Christian environment with the most wonderful Principal and teachers. We love it here!
We love this school!!! The teachers are the best, very friendly, and the Principal is the best!!! Its a fun place and the kids love it.
We looked at several schools before choosing Child of God for our daughter but we knew when we walked in this was the right place for us. It has been a wonderful place and her teacher is amazing! The academic and religious education exceeded our expectations and my daughter enjoys everyday! I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a Christ centered education for their child.
I have left this school simply because there is no ONE person in charge. They really need a true leader, not a fill in, and not a group of people. ONE PERSON.....NOT MANY!!!!!!!
i am a middle school student at child of god and im hlad i go there! i have made many friends over the years and the teachers are fun, but still get to the lessons. the teachers are great! i have been going to this school since pre-school. i have grown up with most of the people here and they are just like family. i truly love it here at Child of God.(:
I am thankful for Child of God Lutheran School, over the years my children's teachers have been consistently caring, patient and prefessional. When one of my children was having trouble reading, his teacher observed his struggle right away and suggested that he get tested. That testing showed that he could benefit from additional help with reading. Because of her careful observation and concern, my child is doing much better in school now.
Let me just say if you want a school which will offer a true quality Christian education along with fun and caring staff, Child of God is the place. My children have grown not only spriritually but also as individuals. I will put the education up against any other school in the area. To respond to the school has fallen on hard times, this is a perception and not true in my opinion. I wish people would offer the facts behind their statements. If you read the communication from the school, two teachers have left because they are going back to school for additional degrees, another teacher took a promotion and another is following her husband as it relates to his call as a Pastor. The school is in search for a new Principal and Pastor but the leadership in place has made sure the school has not skipped a beat. My child came home from school a couple of weeks ago and said "Guess what...we had a food fight at lunch"!!! You heard me, the kids in the lunch room had a food fight and it was started by the staff. Hmmm..quality education, loving staff, growing spiritually and having fun....that's why I send my kids to Child of God.
I have been involved at Child of God Lutheran School for over 10 years. My son graduated from COG and placed in Biology and Geometry as a freshman, even though these are typically sophomore classes. His education at COG allowed him to skip some typical freshman classes. Both my children received an excellent education while attending COG. Their Achievement Test scores were all very high; in some subjects they scored post high school. As far as the teachers leaving, they are continuing their education, following a spouse to where their career has taken them, or are taking a promotion. There is nothing wrong with leaving a job for these reasons. The Interim Principal was just that: Interim-temporary. The school has been working hard to replace the Principal and Pastor on a permanent basis. This task is very close to being complete. The sports program does use volunteers. Volunteers: People who WANT to coach because they have the skill and desire to teach that sport to children. Sometimes the best person for the job is a volunteer! If you want the truth, visit the school many times. You are always welcome at Child of God!
The school has fallen on hard times. They are on their third principal this year and has lost half of their staff due to the lack of leadership. Most of the best teachers have left. There are other options around town.
I'm a student that goes to Child of God. Why I rated it 3 out of 5 is because I do not like the principal, I do not like the quality of the sports teams (they are low budget and need voluteers to do the sports), and I think the education is not challenging enough. I'll come home with only one math lesson with 30 problems and then I'll be done. And I do not like the people, either. I spent the past year and a half being bullied by 2 girls in my class. I hate it so I'll be leaving to Christian High for the 2011-2012 year.
I agree the school is horrible about communication and there were only a few teachers that I think are teaching for the right reasons. If I had the choice to re-do my child's education there..I would not have picked COG.
The school really cares about the kids, and they encourage such a happy atmosphere that you can't help but notice. The academics are great, and the faculty is the best ever! We've been to our share of private schools in the area, and this one is the best by far!
Not only are our children taught the basics but they are taught tight from wrong along with respecting elders, something that is missing in public schools.
From the second I set foot in the doors at Child of God, my son and I received such a warm welcome from all of the staff. The office staff, the volunteers, the teachers, even the principal made us feel welcome! This is an amazing school that makes learning about God a priority. My son has done very well in school this year and is far above other kids his age that do not attend Child of God. We have thoroughly enjoyed our years at Child of God and any family would be very fortunate to be a part of the Child of God family!
COG has everything we were looking for in an educational experience. The school is nationally accredited. The faculty and staff are wonderful - highly experienced, talented, and loving Christian witnesses. The curriculum is challenging and engaging. Our entire experience with COG has been fantastic, and we are excited about next year!
