There aren't words that can actually express my feelings about this unique school. I have two children who attend this school and I cannot imagine going to any other school! If you have read some of the other reviews you know about the school's structure and multi-age dynamics. You know about parental involvement, christian values and the fantastic principal. But what I want to share about is the exceptional teachers and staff. Yes, it is a smaller school, but every teacher knows my name, my kids names even though we haven't had our children in their classes yet. They truly care about their families at this school. You want to be there. You want to get involved. .it's absolute magic! !!
Lial is truly an exceptional school! Sadly we had to relocate and trying to find a similar school at the same cost is just not out there. The continous progress, multi-age environment is very similar to a montessori setting. The students aren't in the same class with the same teachers all day. They work at their ability and capability. They enjoy a variety of talented, loving and caring teachers Lial has to offer. The principal is top notch!
Amazing individual attention for each student! The kids get to learn at their own pace, yet they are challenged to be their best. Small class sizes with multiple age groups allows each child to find 'their place'. Christian values are demonstrated over and over by the teachers and administration and are apparent when the kids interact with each other and adults. Heavy parental involvement (not mandatory) - in every aspect of the school. There are always parents in the classrooms helping with small groups or individuals. The kids actually like having their parents at school. :-)
Lial is truly an exceptional school. You can feel the difference the first time you walk into the building. The continous progress, multi-age environment really allows children to grow and learn in all areas. We have been thrilled with progress our children are making. They are not only strong intellectually but morally as well. Lial has been wonderful for our entire family!!!
Lial is an absolutely fantastic school with exceptional teachers & administration. The emphasis on a student s continual progress instead of everyone learning the same thing at the same time is a huge asset to the students. They learn at their own pace and continually challenge themselves. The parents are heavily involved in the classroom daily and interaction with the teachers is wonderful. We changed our son from the local Whitehouse elementary to Lial and are thrilled with the wonderful change of atmosphere, the warm caring environment and the challenge that is given to the kids both academically and spiritually.
