This is my child's third year at Faith Lutheran and I am thankful she has such a wonderful school to attend. Her academic performance been fostered at Faith (and we have the standardized test scores to prove it), and she has had the chance to participate in all kinds of extracurricular activites even at the middle school level (dance, drama, honor society, service clubs, etc.) Just attended the statewide cheer and dance team competition over the weekend and Faith won every Division AAA category in which they competed. That's just one small area, of course, but it reflects the students' and faculty's dedication and desire for excellence. My child attends after-school and security is just fine. This school has an excellent balance between Christian ethics, learning, and fun. In my opinion and I have lived here for almost 20 years, Faith is the best private school in Las Vegas.
I am a little disappointed in this private school.Safety is lax, kids are unattended after school at pickup areas, front office is unavailable most times, Some of the teachers are unhelpful to kids and parents, yet nothing changes. Dress code is deplorable yet again nothing changes. Edline is not done nearly as well as CCSD's and hard to understand. Tuition is reasonable, however with the yearly increases and amount of money that flows through the school, you are bombarded with requests for donations, which the way you get treated doesn't make for a giving heart.
Faith is an amazing school. Some people may complain about the uniforms, but who cares? This is high school, not a fashion show. I'm a current student, and I've actually grown to appreciate uniform rules - they prepare us for the real world. The quality of education at Faith is great, you really learn a lot, and the teachers genuinely care about the students. It's a good environment too; the studnets at FLHS are, for the most part, good kids. We don't have major problems with bullying, fights, drug use, or anything or the sort (most high schools do). Not to mention, we have some of the best sport teams out there. Some of the rules may seem silly to a 14 year-old (such as no colored belts), but I think it's worth it for the quality of education we receive.
this school is horrible. the rules are absolutley insane. every child is wearing almost the same thing, there are rules about belts, hair length above eyebrows, just about anything and everything to take away from a childs individuality. If you are planning on sending your kids here, dont, unless it is for punishment. Also one of my sons attended here and one at palo verde high school, they were both in the 9th grade and i was very suprised to see that they were learning the same matterial at the same time, and even getting the same textbooks and homework. the only difference was one cost me about 45$ (pens,pencils etc.)while the other was costing WELL into the thousand of dollars. Bad choice of school. F
Overall, Faith Lutheran is one of the most valuable schools in the city. The class sizes have about 20 to 25 students, thus the higher student to teacher ratio. My one complaint is the high school mathematics department, which needs major tweeking and adjustments. The teachers in this department have trouble controlling the classes and their teaching methods are not up to par for a high school of this caliber. The other departments excel in my opinion and will benefit the students greatly. Many people believe that only the sons and daughters of wealthy and prominent parents attend Faith...this is the case for many of the students, but certainly not all of them. Faith does grant scholarships to those who need financial help and assistance. Is Faith worth the $7,000 a year tuition? In my opinion it is because many public schools in the state are academic catastrophes.
I think faith lutheran is the place to bring your children if you're looking for an exceptional fina arts program. Mr. And mrs. Ball are amazingly talented drama directors. I have seen productions at this school that have blown me away. Parents are always saying that the academy is the the place to be. Faith lutheran drama dept. Has been seriously overlooked.
I went to Faith Lutheran for four years until I recently had to move. It was traumatic having to leave and I miss the school very much. The teachers are amazing people who know how to effectivly teach students what they need to know and make it fun at the same time. The campus is beautiful and is put to good use with a good variety of sports and clubs. The Christian atmosphere and weekly, student led chapels are a wonderful experience. I recommend Faith Lutheran to all parents wishing for their students to attend a school with good ethics, great academics, wonderful teachers, and good friends. It has made an extremly postive impact on me which will last a lifetime.
Needs to improve in dress code, too many kids looking sloppy with torn pants on sides, hair code on boys is the worst I seen in a private school, front office needs to greet with a smile when anyone enters the school, math in high school grades needs improvement, some teachers need to dress more professional,not dress like the kids. Needs more parents involved in P.T.F. meetings,it's an o.k. school, but could improve with parents involved more in different areas of school codes,activities,committees.Excited about cafeteria finally being built, it's about time,don't understand the reason for lockers being outside the school, most kids don't like being out in the heat or cold to get there books,need something done about the kids being outside in the cold & heat,when staff members have their children inside the offices,nice & warm & cool.Hope this will help make changes,there is also room for improvement. Thank you!!!
My child is in her 2nd year at Faith and we like the small classroom sizes, morality, ethics and rules enforced here. I would appreciate more economic and racial diversity, but don't want to send my child to public school just for those reasons. The homework is tough and the curriculum seems tougher than at her former private school. Faith is worth every penny we pay for tuition and more.
I was a student at Faith for 4 years and I loved every moment of it! I recommend this school to everyone who was thinking of putting their child into it.
