I have been a long time parent at LMCA. I find the administrator helpful and a guide to spiritual parenting. As for the previous comment regarding the "firing" of the principal, if only people would find out the true facts before splatting venom on public domain. Perfect? Not at all. The abundance of teachers that invest their lives into students lives, the encouragement they receive, not to mention the education, that is available, that makes LMCA a viable option for your child.
I am not sure what is happening at this school, It use to be such a great place but now they have fired their principal for the mere fact that a child did not live up to their standards. They are cutting depts. and jobs and just leaving us all to wonder if it will be worth paying for what they have leftover. I do not think that we will be back next year.
LMCA is an amazing school that provides an excellent high standard of christian education in a loving environment. The teachers & staff truly care not only about each child, but about each family. This school walks what they talk!!!
Good overall but since it's a private school, the teachers don't have to have teaching degrees. I left the school fairly unprepared in certain areas (math, science). I struggled a lot transitioning into a different school after I left LMCA.
I am a student of LMCA. We have so many opportunities to grow and serve in our community and in our school. The teachers are there for us and care about us. You won't get that in a public school. Thanks LMCA!!!
I have 3 children who graduated from the school. They had a variety of experiences that poised them for good success. Not perfect but realistic. I appreciate the investment that was made in their lives.
Our 5th grader is new to LMCA (from public school) and has literally gone from daily frustration to an enriching and supportive environment. It has been amazing to see the grades improve. The 5th grade teachers and coaches (soccer) are very professional and just awesome. They promote Christian values at its' best.
I was at this school for 8 years and I loved it!!! I have nothing but good memories of LMCA. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. I wish I still lived in Henderson that way I could send all 3 of my kids there. It's the best school a kid could go to, ever!! It's fun, it has the best teachers (which by the way genuinely do care about the students) and an awesome curriculum with God as the main focus. Go LMCA!!
I love everything about this school!!! I pray that my son will graduate from here!
What's not to love? Small class sizes; teachers that make an investment in their students; a wonderful and growing athletics program; academic caliber that prepares students for college; and a continual emphasis on making an impact in the community. LMCA is one of those schools you graduate from, and then either go back to serve on staff or send your children there because you have to a part of this incredible ministry. LMCA will have an impact for many generations to come!
I love this school. As a former student I feel I received more individual attention and help with my academics than I would have at another institution. Now as a parent I totally have peace that my children are cared for and loved while I'm at work. The early education teachers are the BEST!
LMCA is a school like no other I have seen. This school has a love for not only my children but for the families and community in our area. They are dedicated to reaching out to those in need. This school has an awesome testimony. I am so thankful for LMCA.
Lake Mead is one of the best schools in the Las Vegas Valley. They have an incredible staff that truly love the kids. I thank God that he brought our family to this school.
Our family is very pleased with this school. My daughter had an amazing experience in the full day kindergarten. This is her 2nd year at LMCA and she's receiving good academic instruction along with technology, art and music in addition to biblical instruction. The staff is wonderful. My son is also there in the preschool and I disagree with the earlier review that there is no curriculum, my son is getting instruction, he comes home everyday with the work he's done and I'm already seeing the difference in him from his other preschool. We are very happy with this school and the education and values provided.
We have been involved at LMCA for 9 years. It exists to promote a biblically based, Christ like character in its students and has an outstanding missions emphasis. Students as young as 7th grade may take part in foreign short term missions trips. My children have also been challenged academically by the high standard of performance that is expected and they have always risen to the challenge! It is awesome for me to see my 8th grader taking total responsiblity for her homework assignments as well as taking part in extra curricular activities. The school is progressive in that, it evaluates the curriculum and updates as needed in order to help equip students who must live in the 21st century. They have a technology program where students as young as 7th grade have their own Mac laptops and elementary students have a computer class.
School has some good attributes, but teachers are hardly qualified & science curriculum is a joke. No honors classes are available. If you have a high maintenance child, this could be the place for them. Overly religious fundamentalism crosses the line into families' personal lives.
This is just an awesome school! Not only does my child grow in his education, but in his spiritual walk as well! He is now in 7th grade and has spectacular SAT scores. His walk with God grows not only at home, but stroger by bering around the spiritual staff. Thank you LMCA!!!!!!
LMCA is more than a school it is a community. It is committed to partner with parents not only to encourage children to grow academically but also spiritually and in character to prepare them for life outside of a classroom. The school has brought so much to my family. I have a LMCA graduate now in college and one soon to graduate serving this summer in the Amazon Jungle. They were trained for both at LMCA.encouraged for both at LMCA. It ministered to my entire family during the time of illness and a death in the family far beyond expectation. It has what has kept us in the area for the last six years. I'd encourage anybody looking more than a school, but an extended family, to consider Lake Mead Christian Academy.
My 4 year old is in the pre-K class and I was skeptical at first, but I must say I am very impressed. At 4 she's able to read many simple words and write simple words in cursive as well! I am very happy with this progress because my other older daughter went to Sewell and was lucky to write in cursive or read by 1st grade. Now she's going to Brown JHS and I'm looking to switch her to LMCA due to many problems there. For the parents that have reviewed LMCA negatively here, I must say compared to the alternatives in this area, LMCA is great and we're lucky to have it here!
