I don't think I would feel so much love at any other school. I went to Sword of the Spirit from kindergarten through 3rd grade. I attended public school from 4th to 6th grade, returning to SOS were I am currently a sophmore. I will continue on at SOS until I graduate. I couldn't imagine myself in a public high school, possibly being bullied, being involved with the wrong crowd, and learning to live my life by the worlds standards. In my years at SOS I have experienced the love and care of the teachers, something I wouldn't be able to find at any other school. Being a student at Sword of the Spirit is more like being part of a family rather than part of a school. My school has proved to me the love of Christ. Ms. Sue has became a big part of my life and a big example of what a Christian should live like. Yes, we make mistakes, we're not a whole bunch of righteous students but this is where Ms. Sue and teachers come in to give us guidance. Without a school like SOS to teach me to stand apart from the rest of the world, academically and spiritually I don't know where I would be. -Susana Rodriguez

I don't think I have as been as loved in any other school as I have in Sword of the Spirit. I have gone to this school from kindergarten through 3rd grade and then 6th grade to sophmore year and still going, until I graduate. I have experienced the love and care of every teacher I have had and have. I love SOS and every teacher here, they have showed the true love of Christ. Susana.

My Grandson is going to this school and I feel he is not learning the basics..he is behind on his reading skills and they don't have any extra programs to help him out. I like the fact that he is getting the religion but I feel he could use more help with learning. I'm afraid that if was transferred to a regular public school he would be way behind the other students.

I started attending when I was about 5 and have been attending for 14 years. To say to stand in this place is to stand in holy ground. Evermore I am more inspired to walk in faith and in love when I enter the building. My life has been exponentially blessed by the staff. They are true living sacrifices and a great blessing. I am so grateful to have basically grown up in such an environment and I cannot imagine what my life would be without it. My experience has been absolutely incredible and quite an amazing adventure to say the least. There is abundant love in Sword of the Spirit and it is a haven to seek refuge in. To conclude: "Where love is, God is." -Leo Tolstoy Josh Aragon Senior

I would never recommend this school or have my children go there! I am a former student with that being said teacher lacked degrees and proper teaching technique. The only reason I gave it 2 stars was the only person worth having as a teacher was Grandma Z who no longer works there she was the best! If you do not or the parents do not volunteer the child are not treated as well. If you do volunteer it will get you and your children a get out of jail card. There are no extra programs just the basic. As for being spiritual it almost seems mixed up in the beginning it was very God based now it seems more Messianic based which is not bad but odd if you went there from the start. If you think your child needs a Christian education do it at home that is where they will see it the most, there they will get a warped view of it.

I went to this school for 9 years and graduated, the positives were the good friends I made and that some of me and my teachers have remained in contact. The negatives are some of the double standards staff have had and continue to have, I also don't feel the academics are up to par. I never had high school chemistry and trying to go back to school and learn I feel I am at a disadvantage due to improper offering of classes. Also since the teachers are all volunteers they don't have teaching degrees and sometimes fall short of conveying the information that the children need to suceed in the their futures. If you want a school where kids will meet possible life friends and an emphasis on Christianity then this school is great but if you are looking for academic standards and want your children to attend a higher institution of learning I would recommend a different school.

I would not recommend this school to anyone. As a former student, I felt that I was not prepared for the real world. Academics were set high which does deserve a five star rating however thier teachings about losing your salvation was quite discouraging.

Sword of the Spirit is an excellent school for a number of reasons. As a former student that attended the school from K-12, I am a firm believer in their teaching, their staff, their curriculum, and their impact on students that come and go through the school. I was always in trouble at school because I was high energy and easily distracted. They didn't diagnose me with ADD. Instead, they made me exercise self-control and discipline. Were they strict? Yes. Did they discipline me? Yes. I personally spent many days in the principal and school office, but I learned from those experiences. I am now a college graduate with a degree in Business Management and a minor in International Business. I have been to Europe, South America, and the Caribbean for studies, missions, and vacation. I am a business consultant working for the largest privately owned bank in the United States. The virtues of responsibility, work ethic, morals, and honesty that are responsible for my success at the age of 24 can be easily attributed to my life experiences at Sword of the Spirit. I would say that I m a self-made man that never could have done it on my own.

I graduated from SOS and all I regret is not having gone there since pre- K. Taking me to this school was the best choice my mom ever made for me. Every teacher gives their best without expecting anything back. And yes, there were no sports or much of an extra curricular 'fun', but I had fun in many other ways. I was given the chance to experience leadership and the unconditional love and dedication from every single teacher there. I thank God that my brother attends to this school. He is not missing out on anything by not going to public schools.

Sword of the Spirit has challenged me to seek God every day. I came to S.O.S. my senior year, and the work was very tough. My one year at Sword of the Spirit encouraged me to go to college. I received a scholarship for my current college year, and I know that it was thanks to S.O.S. To other parents or possible students, if you want to succeed with academics, think about enrolling (or enrolling your children) at Sword of the Spirit. The hard work paid off, for college, so far, is a breeze.

I am a former Student at Sword of the Spirit. many people don't realize the importance of this school. When i first came to Sword of the Spirit i was not a Christian. i said i was but it was mostly talk. The teachers here helped me dramaticallly. They trained me in the way a Godly student should be. Now i am a proud believer in Jesus Christ, and can testify and say that i am and will continue living each and every day for him. If it wasnt for Sword of the Spirt, i don't know where I would Be. I don't care if we dont have computers, or basketball teams. The one thing i care about is God, and there are no Schools out there that will let you read and pray every day like this SChool. Thank you all! You have touched me soo deep.

As a lifelong student of SOS, i can tell you first hand that it is an incredible school. We may not have the athletics or the extra-curriculars that most other schools do, but it really does prepare you for the real world by providing not only the necessary academics, but also the information and the tools needed to further your relationship with God, which is really the only thing truly necessary in the world. The only reason that I can think of that would cause former students to feel negatively toward the school would be that they simply didn't utilize the time or opportunities given to them through the school, and inflicted the consequences upon themselves. I know that the school is greatly preparing me for the world and I also personally know many graduates who wisely used their time at the school and have gone on to be very successful.

Sword of the Spirit Missionary School is a very good school, the teachers care for their children, and they are as strict as they need to be. I am a proud student of S.O.S school even though I do n ot go there anymore due to living conditions.

I used to go to this school. I love the effort they are putting forth I just felt that they did not teach you about the real world. I transferred out after the 6th grade. I'm glad I transferred out. When I got into the public school system, it was like I was living under a rock for all those years. I'm not trying to down the school in anyway because I understand they were working with limited sources, but I would not recommend the school to anyone.

This school is entirely staffed by (unpaid) volunteers and funded wholly through private donations. What the staff may lack in formal training they more than make up for with dedication and enthusiasm. No tuition is charged - rather, parents are encouraged to give what they are moved to give, be it time, money, or materials. As such, the quality and quantity of the extra-curricular activities and academic programs are DIRECTLY tied to the effort and generosity of the parents themselves. If the other negative reviewing parents (and all parents for that matter) were to give more fully to the school of their time and resources, the overall program (not to mention their own children) would benefit from it. This school proves the old adage that you only get out of something what you put into it. At least this school endeavors to make a difference in the community it serves.

Academic programs insufficient; little availability of music, art, sports. The level of parent involvement is dependent on level of involvment in extracurricular religious activities created, directed and managed by the core staff. If you are 'in' with the religious teachings you are 'in' with the school.

I think that your school should have a better way of operating so that your students will be satisfied with coming to school. I think the biggest problem is the faculty and how strict they are on the students and teacher - student communication.
