If I could rate this school a 0 then I would. If you want your child bullied by the teachers then send your kids here. If you want the church you go to, to be insulted by the teachers then send your kids here. There is nothing "Christian" about this school, unless you want to pick and choose what values of Christianity you want to follow. If you have money then you'll be ok because you can buy your child no consequences or discipline.

I Don't know why there's a negative comment on this school. I think these are parents who didn't get "their way" and are just not used to equal treatments. This school has great academic programs and great christian values to teach our children. Train up a child in the way he should go and when he gets old, he will never depart from it. The principal, Mr Keubler is so nice and he's always checking up on every aspect of this school. The kids are wonderful and respectful. I don't regret sending my son here. They are at school for a greater part of their day and it's important that they spend it in an environment where kids are taught about God's love and are learning great academics at the same time.

Imagine my surprise putting my children in public school to fine even more loving staff, freedom for students and parents to walk the halls and visit even unannounced, yet theres still order and high security with police undercover and cameras monitoring the halls more secure than ALA only parents arent treated like we're visiting a prison! in the school. Children come home even happier thsn ever. The curriculum is more vigorous and challenging than at ALA. my child was Honor roll to be struggling in the beginning of the year bc ALA was NOT what they claimed to be! I thought it was just me but several other parents who transferred out said same I urge parents to prayerfully read their covenant they signed bc Is your child worth the drama and headache of keeping that pathetic contract to pay them for substandard education

This school is ok. Yes, its great they are learning about the Lord and biblical principles but I have found that the office staff is not so pleasant at times and on different occasions have found them to be very unorganized. I hear the administrative staff has changed from last year. I remember calling before enrolling my child and everyone was much more pleasant and informative. I recommend other parents to wait until Kindergarden or 1st grade to enroll their child. I have not see the benefit of having my child here versus a regular daycare. Seems like they follow a schedule for all the grades and most of the time my child doesn't get to finish eating cause they have to stay on schedule. How do you rush a 3 year old to eat? My child comes crying because he/she is starving. Although the school safety seems great, they go on lock down after 08:30, the parents get treated like strangers when picking up their child, we aren't allowed to go inside, we are forced to stay in the hall, its ok for older kids but not 3 year olds. I'm not sure if I will be keeping my child here for next year. I have to stay for the remaining of the year since I signed a contract. won't be staying here.

As a parent that was hesitant to send her 4 year old daughter to school for the first time.. I am so grateful that I chose ALA!! Not only as she is being taught spiritual principal but also the education have so far exceeded my expectation. My daughter enjoys school and looks forward to going everyday (even on weekends). Every morning when I drop her off she is greeted by her name with lovely staff. I am a proud parent of ALA and blessed that she has two wonderful teachers (Mrs. Cruz & Ms. Soria). If you're looking for a school with Moral, Spiritual and High Standard Education then, ALA would be my recommendation!

The education and spiritual principles are fantastic. But I'm i totally supporting the previous parent review regarding administrative staff. I'm very glad that staff as Maria (school secretary) is Not longer part of the staff. She was too unkind to parents and kids. The next one to leave should be Mrs. kuebler. She have not learned anything from her husband which is fantastic kind person.

Abundant Life Academy has been a complete Blessing to my son's life. The teachers are wonderful, the level of education is excellent and I couldn't be happier. This is my son's first year here after moving to the area, he is in 8th grade and he loves it too. The only negative is I feel they don't have enough activities as far as baseball, instruments ect.. but for the lack of that we have the blessings of a GOD centered school and that is what is most important!! You will not be disappointed with this school at all.

This school is an absolute blessing! I can't begin to say enough about this school. The teachers, aides & staff are all wonderful. The level of education is exceptional. They not only teach our children but they truly love them and with Christ at the center of it all our children are also being taught about the love of Jesus in themselves and how they need to show that to others. The 'Law of Kindness' is always in place. My son has been here since K4. He is currently in 5th grade. My daughter, will also attend when she is old enough. I truly believe that the financial sacrifice is well worth it. What the children receive in return is priceless.

I believe my child has received a high quality of education, our neighbor goes to a public school in Clifton, the neighbor is in one grade above my child. My child is able to help or do the other childs work, wow! I also love how the older kids are taught to be kind and helpful towards the little ones, the older kids set a good example for the little ones, Lastly it's great to know the pricipal and VP are know so many kids by name and they stop to talk to and encourage the kids.

Abundant Life Academy is a wonderful school. It is a Kingdom school built on God's values and encourages academic excellence on children. They have various activities throughout the year that allows students and parents to participate together. Their best activity is the Kindness challenge wherein the students are asked to earn points by doing acts of kindness. The points are earned to reach a goal and once the goal is reached the whole school has a pizza party. The kindness principle is brought about by being kind out of having Jesus in your heart. It is the effort of the whole community. The school has a level from K3 to High School and this mix turns out good since you would see High School students being role models for the younger kids.

My daughter has been in this school from K-4 until presently second grade. The school is fantastic. It has a warm, Christian atmosphere and the facilities are absolutely gorgeous and top notch. My son also attends ALA. The faculty is excellent and the children receive individual attention. I've visited other private and public schools and they don't compare to ALA. The tuition is very reasonable and the atmosphere is phenomenal.
