I have two children at ALCS in 5th and 9th grades. They have been there since kindergarten and I am thankful everyday for the wonderful staff that I entrust them to everyday. I know that they are loved and cared for almost as much as if they were with me. They have also benefitted from a wonderful education that will truly benefit them when they enter college or the working world. As the parent of a child with a learning disability I k ow that he was given the individualized attention that he needed in order to succeed. I thank God everyday for ALCS and the staff.

As a father of three children attending Abundant Life Christian School, I find this school to be excellent in providing a quality education for my children. The Christian atmosphere enhances all aspects of this academic institution. The price is affordable for the quality received. The recent addition of high school classes shows this private school is in demand and expanding to meet the needs of those wanting the best education for their children. I hope to see more sports offerings in the near future.

Our child has thrived at ALCS. the teachers are outstanding and she is working ahead of the public school. Being a teacher myself I scrutinized the school prior to enrolling our child and it has exceeded our expectations. My child is learning, safe, happy, and full of love for learning!!!

I visited ALCS one morning recently and I was impressed with the teachers and staff that I met. The children were quietly working in some classrooms, and in other classrooms the children were being led in educational games. It was obvious that the children were enjoying being there.

We love ALCS! Our children are thriving here. In public school, our children were surrounded by people claiming to be christians, but lived by a different standard. At ALCS, the staff live a christian example and encourage the children to be the best they can be, also. The academics are advanced and the children are challenged to expand their abilities.This is a very positive atmosphere and we look forward to many years here.

I have only good things to say about ALCS. The teachers are wonderful with the students and the principal loves the children and wants only the best for them. My child is in the 4th grade and has astonished several family members who are teachers themselves with his knowledge of history, math,etc. I feel he is getting a quality education at ALCS and learning Christian ideals that he could not get from public school. I will continue to send him to ALCS as long as possible.

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.
