My kids attend this school and the teachers and staff are fabulous. The most important thing for me is my kids are in a loving Christian environment where they learn about God but also experience Gods love from the staff.

Our child attended SSLS for 9 years. There was a recent transition in administration as well as a few teachers which is very positive. It has a warm caring environment which fosters learning and growing. The school is academically driven, they began using IPads this year yet sports are a big part of everyday life.

SSLS is a WONDERFUL school!! We have 2 children that began here in PK. One has graduated and the other is in 8th grade. From the principal to the teachers and coaches this has been the best experience for our children and ourselves as parents. SSLS is a family. Our children have made life-long friendships at school. They have participated in sports, athletic tournaments, class trips and academic organizations and contests that they couldn't get in a public school. Academically, SSLS is strong. Its the only SACS accredited private school in the area. The new ipad program is exciting for both students and parents. But most importantly the students at SSLS thrive in a Christ-centered learning environment. I wouldn't consider sending my child to any other school.

Mixed revies as of now. Students' achievement test scores unimpressive. Difficult to have a church school and community students. Not sure if parent input from nonmembers is welcome.

Most parents and teachers i have meet are nice,i most say. of course we have some that think they are higher ups. The first grade teacher seemed to be pretty nice until i had a convercation with her and she became very rude, she talked as if i was being paid to teach her kid instead of the other way around.the kindergaten teacher is really great. the school has great potentional but some teachers need to be put in there place.,if this is going to be called a christian school.

We have/had 4 children attend this school for the past 8 years (with one graduating on to high school) and all our kids have had excellent academic and Christian experiences as well as numerous athletic and artistic opportunties from kindergarten through the eighth grade. The faculty - from Principal Guelzow on down - puts their heart and soul into maximizing the education of our children. This is a choice that we are so fortunate and blessed to have made for not only our children but our family as well. Bryan & Elyse Neuwirth
