Faith, character and values are of utmost importance in our home. Epiphany Lutheran School has provided invaluable teachings for my children in this area. The teachers have always provided positive, open communication and dialog so you truly feel like you are working together in "raising" your children. We love the family environment, culture and camaraderie the students have with each other. It is truly a blessing to be a part of this school community.

Awesome school! My son is in 8th grade and I have seen him grow socially and his work ethic is 100% improved. This class sizes are small which means greater 1-1 attention. I wish I would have sent him earlier. I highly recommend Epiphany!

My youngest son was struggling greatly in public school with both grades and self esteem. After much discussion and many positive recommendations by others we visited Epiphany Lutheran school. We instantly fell in love with the school and my son went from hating school to being excited to go to school every day. He needed the smaller class sizes, loving staff, focus on learning vs passing state/district tests, and the great attention he gets from his teachers in order to succeed. We LOVE Epiphany Lutheran school!

Epiphany Lutheran School offers an education that is well rounded in academics, music, art, sports and spiritual development. It has a kind and deeply committed staff of teachers and administrators who seem to feel a personal call to serve and educate children. My children have attended for two years and I am pleased with the quality and earnestness of the staff.

Epiphany Lutheran is a great school with small class sizes and caring staff. There is a definite sense of community where children are taught to accept the differences of others, embrace strengths, and work on weaknesses. Teachers provide quality instruction based upon a well-designed curriculum. There is an increasing menu of extra-curricular activities, and the in-school music program is also growing. Excellent school.

This school is great. The teachers communicate with you very well. They are very caring. So far as education, I saw a difference in my kids within two weeks of enrolling them. I love that they come home talking about Jesus...priceless!

This is the best Christian School in Houston. My children are happy and receive a top notch education. The teachers are one of a kind. I guess thats why we would never consider any other school..Epiphany Lutheran School is the one for us.....

Our children attended Epiphany from preschool through 2nd grade, before we moved out of the area. We absolutely adored the teachers, staff, and atmosphere of Epiphany. And the price was unbeatable for the quality of education and variety of classwork being offered. The teachers are very loving and caring toward the children, and pray for them each day before classes; kids attend chapel and music classes, and participate in field trips and intramural sports (for the older kids). We won't hesitate to re-enroll our kids here if we ever move back into the area. Epiphany is one of the best-kept secrets in private Christian education in northwest Houston.

Overall, we are pleased w/decision to enroll our boys @ this school. We left CFISD due to frustrations w/discipline, bullying. Our oldest son is very happy in the jr high program. It's not a good fit for our other son though - some issues w/1 of the teachers. Unsure what we'll do rt now

Epiphany is a wonderful place for children in monther's day out and from Pre-K on up. They offer flexible reading levels (children in K can read at the first or second grade level if that's what they are capable of), strong Saxon math and the teachers are loving yet firm when necessary.

I and my son a very happy with Epiphany. They are very big on teaching students manors, respect and kindness. This is something that seems to be lost in our public schools. All of his teachers have been wonderful since Pre-K 3 classes. I would recommend it to any parent who is trying to raise their children with positive attitudes and the Christian values that a child needs in their life to make moral judgements as they grow.

I love this school! My son was having difficulty in the public school. He struggled with his grades because he's easily distracted. The teachers couldn't give him the attention he needed and wanted to label him Special Ed. Since he's been at Epiphany, his lowest report card grade has been an 86. His teacher is so kind, loving and patient. All of the teachers are. They take a special interest in each child's success and well being. The curriculum is above par and thethere are plenty of extra activities for the children. Both of my school age children attend and I would highly recommend Epiphany Lutheran School to anyone!

This is an excellent school of highest quality and caliber. It looks at the whole child and works with parents in specific need situation. The staff is of the best quality and the curriculum is challenging and competitive with the Cy-Fair school district. I would highly recommend this school.
