My daughter has only been at this school for 1 year and she says she Loves it. The teacher actually care about your child. I love being about to know what is happening in the classroom through their edline program. I dont have to wait for a progress report or a report cards to see how my daughter is doing! The teacher Love the involvement of the parents and make y9ou feel your opinion matters.

After reading the prior review, I felt I had to respond. My two children attended ELCS from 5th & 6th grade on and I have been very pleased with the education they received. The teachers are clearly committed to their work and just as importantly, to the Lord. The ones I have dealt with have worked hard to guide the students academically and spiritually. I have the seen the Ohio Graduation Test results and the school does much better than the local public schools. Also, the school is beginning to offer options in information technology with college credit as well. The students are typical kids but as one of my students classmates pointed out, ELCS is nothing like the 'zoo' of a school he came from. The atmosphere isn't perfect, as none is, but my kids have been guided academically and spiritually. I feel fortunate to have my children attend ELCS.

This is a wonderful school. Yes there are trailers in the back, but they are well kept and do not leak. Many school utilize trailers, that is not the mark of a bad school. I find the falculty and curriculum to be very much dedicated to their mission and I believe they keep the focus where it belongs. Number 1- on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Number 2 - On a quality education for the children and finally Number 3 - Meeting their fiscal responsibilities. Yes that does mean fundraising, but it must be done to accomplish numbers one and two. A small price to pay in my estimation. I find this schools fund raising efforts no greater nor no less than any public school.

This school is positively horrible. The majority of the school is leaking trailers behind the main building. The leadership of the school is outmoded and outdated and too concerned with fundraising and not enough with education. The administration is also very closeminded about the discipline issues in the school...just because it says Christian school in the name doesn't mean these kids are following that lifestyle. The only bright spot is the preschool, which is very good.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
