It doesnt matter if parents, unlces, aunts are related at Ben Lippen or if its free. All teachers and staff make sure that every child gets the same or better academics as well as Gods word. Yes they do give napkins and lunch if your child forgets there lunch. The teachers are speechless. I cant express how wonderful they are. They have helped my children grow into godly and smart children. My children are WANTING to read and write and do there work. They are excited and motivated to go beyond. Its worth it no matter the cost. I use to not think so but to be honest it is worth it. They are caring and friendly, the staff and teachers. They are for sure where God wants them. I am thankful.

We will be sending our children to Hammond next year. There are too many people related (teachers, principals, grandparents). Discipline seems to be a problem with its the child of an employee, etc. Also, it seems as if any grandparent on down work there, their children and grandchildren get to go free which is wrong. Napkins are not even provided at lunchtime.

If you can afford it, this is the best school for your child to learn and grow and not worry about bullying or hurtful kids. They teach them how to treat each other and the environment is great! My only problem is coming up with the tuition!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
