When we initially enrolled our child we were not please with the teacher. She was unfriendly, unprofessional & borderline rude. As expected we moved our child to a different classroom & we have been happy with the results thus far. At this young age we have observed our child's ability to cut shapes, count to 100 by singles & 5's, sound out words, spell & recognize site words! We love the current teacher! With that being said here are our concerns. We've noticed several large dead cockroaches in the gym & hallways, there is a foul smell radiating from the restrooms, it seems to be a disconnect with administration & staff(I have personally heard grumbles of displeasure with working conditions from teachers about administration) & lastly we have to pay for EVERYTHING! Every activity is a charge. A trip to the library 2, petting zoo @ the school 6, play production @ the school 6 & a trip to a neighboring church 2(shouldn't that @ least be free since this is a Christian environment?) We've participated in several fundraisers this year & are wondering where the money went. Certainly not to field trip fees! We're not sure our child will be returning next year. Hope this helps. Blessings!
My child Had some behavioral issues and this principal worked with me to help my child succeed. The principal and teachers exhibit their love on a daily basis.
I am a public school teacher. My niece and nephew started out at LWCA. Unfortunately, their parents had to relocate. However, when my niece started her new school, she was so far advance than the other students. She was test and moved up a grade. My nephew is ahead of this class. After seeing my niece and nephew advance academically, my son now attends LWCA. There is a big difference in Private Christian Education and Public School Education. LWCA offers lots of one on one. I enjoy talking and working with the teachers.
Enrolling my grandaughter at this school was my biggest mistake.I feel as if I failed my grandaughter. My grandaughter has been at Brookhollow Christian Academy for 6 years and I was very satisfied. BCA only went up to 2nd grade, which left me looking for another Christian Academy. I'm sad to say I was told about LWCA.The teacher I was introduced to when I came to tour the school wasnt the same teacher that is my grandaughters teacher now. At the beginning of the school year I noticed the mispelling of words on the board.I went in at the beginning of the school year and let her teacher know that I was there to support her as the teacher and my grandaughter. I noticed that the teacher didnt give out conduct sheets for the purpose of communication. The first 9 weks was o.k., but I was noticing that her teacher didnt seem as if she was an experienced teacher. The second nine weeks was a total nightmare. My grandaughter recieved 3 F's on her progress report and I was never notified by the teacher that my grandaughters grades dropped down from A's and B"s to F's. There is no communication from the teacher to the parents and the administration is know help.
As a parent I feel that when you have a problem with anything that occurs at the school you should be able to go to the administrator of the school to resolve the problem. Each time I went to Ms. Goodie or had a conversation with her I felt as if she wasnt holding the teacher responsible for anything. I felt as if I was being labeled and attacked. At this point I'm just waiting for the end of the school year because I have know intention of returning to LWCA. Every school that hold any type of Accreditation has guidelines in which they must follow in order to keep their Accreditation. I bought my grandaughter here for a Christian Education, small classes, firm but loving teachers. I feel that my grandaughters teachers are lazy, unexperienced and untrained. I dont recommend Living Word Christian Academy to anyone.
I currently have two children attending this wonderful school. The earliest my children attended this school was 18 months. The structure, love, and innovation this school brings to our children is amazing. The christain teachings have also helped my kids become more confident in their faith and beliefs. Nothing is forced and when children seeking more knowledge it is provided.
This school is great! I love the small classes and the children learn so much. I think the potential for this school is outstanding and they will do great things. I would suggest that anyone who has a little one to send your child to this school.
My grand daughter has been going to LWCA since she was 3. It is an awesome school with great teachers, assistants, and administration.
My daughter is going to the first grade next school year and has been with LWCA since Pre-K all my daughter wants to do in her spare time is read, do math problems and write. I beleive this is all due to this school. She started reading and doing basic addition in Pre-K and now in kinder doing more advance levels along with learning spanish. They also have fine arts programs so that your child may be in after school activities which is also awesome. Also the adminitration has always been very nice in answering any questions I have had.
As far as learning it is a great school my son has learn so much there. But the adminitration, I believe the attitudes could be better.
My daughter started at Inwood Oaks Christian School in kindergarten. She loves the school and is learning at higher level than public school. Next year will be her third year at IOCS. We love the school and there strong Christian environment.
My son has attended IOCS since he was 3 years old and he is now in the first grade. He is very excited about learning and if that excites him I don't mind making the sacrifice to send him to IOCS. And to top it all off, the school is christian based. They have praise and worship service everyday and parents are invited to participate. My husband and I are pleased with my son's progress. The staff is helpful and friendly and all of the teachers are certified instructors. The after school programs they have developed are great. If you are in search of a Christian School for your child, please give IOCS a tour. You will definitely love it!!
Hello, my name is Shawn Carpenter and my two children have been attending Inwood Oaks School for two years now and we love the school , the staff everything about it. My children have and have had wonderful teachers I know they are learning and want to learn more. They are excited about going to this school. We were at Sea World ,Texas and my kids kept asking me when were they going back to school, I was like wow!, they rather be at school than see Shamu, that's just so awesome to me. I thank God so much for allowing my chidren to be in an environment like Inwood oaks Christian, it's truly a Blessing!
Great school. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. My 2year old and my 7 year old kids are very happy and my 7 year old is learning much more than when she was in tomball school district, considered a top school. The are also learning about god. I make the sacrifice to pay for my kids education.
It was very difficult working with the staff at this school. There seemed to be a 'control issue' between the administration/coordinators and the teachers. Yet it was the students who suffered when parents are denied access to teachers. I would strongly not recommend this school.
