I have been associated with this school for over 15 years. CLCS, like many private schools, has struggled at times due to outside forces and financial challenges. It continues, however, to touch young people with the positive message of Christ. Hundreds of graduates have finished and have attended some of our top universities. CLCS is dedicated to reaching the world through our International Program and Open Enrollment policy. With our School of Excellence Program students, beginning in the 9th grade, can earn an associate of arts or science degree at San Jacinto Jr College which will transfer to the University of Houston. I believe this is one of the best private schools in the City of Houston.

I have 3 children that have attended CLCS. Two of them are now graduated and I currently have a 10th grader in the High School program. CLCS has provided excellence in academics, with programs such as the "School of Excellence" to give my students opportunity to advance in education. We have been very involved in sports, this has given them life skills and opportunities for leadership, and my students grow spiritually every year through the chapels and the bible classes. The staff is very family friendly and have a huge heart for the students. The school has great potential for growth. The best way to describe CLCS is if you are looking for a very well rounded environment for your student this will be accomplished here. This is our home away from home and I appreciate CLCS for providing a positive environment for my children. Keep up the Good Work!!

Clear Lake Christian School strives for excellence in all they do. Their focus is a wonderful blend of academics and preparing for college coupled with a focus on instilling Christlike values in our children. The weekly chapel services have dynamic speakers including youth pastors and interns who connect well with our children and deliver relevant biblical messages that leave lasting impressions, which I am so grateful for. My daughter first came to CLCS last year in 8th grade and she fit right in at CLCS and became part of the family. The summer right before her 9th grade year (2013/2014 school year) CLCS launched the "School of Excellence" which is a dual credit program and she jumped right on board with that. When my daughter graduates high school in 4 years, she will also leave CLCS with an Associates Degree and will be ahead of the game! The leadership in general is composed of incredible people who's focus seems to be taking the school to another level in excellence all while being loving, understanding and merciful people. The school is well rounded and I am looking forward to seeing the what the next few years hold for CLCS. It really is a wonderful school.

Since Grace Church took back over tthe school, the leadership is non-existent and the person they have in charge is a Pastor not an educator. The academics are far below other Christian Schools in the area such as Bay Area. My child was bullied at a previous school and we brought her here to allow her to focus on academics. Unfortunately, she witnessed students throwing pencils at teachers and students talking back and using language that our family is not accustomed to. This is our first and last year at Clear Lake Christian School.

Not wanting to put my daughter in public school I started my search for an alternative. Being a Christian myself I not only looked for a private school but a private Christian school. A friend (& customer of mine) referred me to CLCS, where her grandson attends, and proceeded to tell me about his achievements there and all the reasons why I should, too, enroll my daughter. I thank God every day for that referral. I'll reference the parent that said the curriculum is too tough...? I think not. Look at the 100% graduation rate with ~96% going on to college...and many of those awarded some form of scholarship for academics. The curriculum is nothing the students can't handle...and with what the public school systems are producing these days, I'll take a challenging curriculum, any day. The staff are very caring & truly care about each child's success there. I can also see this in kids of all ages there, & I do look, their pride at being a part of such a great christian family & school. And I'll add that in this failing economy, I'll continue to trim my budget in order to keep my daughter at Clear Lake Christian School.

Our child has attended CLCS Elementary for two years. We think the school is a very good school, with outstanding teacher support and communication. Teachers provide daily communication through websites, take-home folders, after school contact at pick-up times and phone calls when warranted. The homework has been reasonable. The only negative criticism would be that the curriculum is stringent and fairly tough (Pensacola Christian curriculum). However, our student is making high grades and doing well with it, despite what we feel are pretty high expectations for the age level. We would highly recommend this school.

my son has attended CCCS for three years and we have found the teachers and administration to be cooperative and competent. Is the school perfect, no, nothing is, but can say if your interested in a good Christian education and tired of the nonsense of public school, than I would highly recommend CCCS. We are happy with the results

This school was ok. I went there for about four years, and over time it just got worse. I felt like they let any kid in the school, which includes kids who got expelled from public school. I wasn't getting the best education possible and I was extremely dissappointed with this school. Do not pay to get into a school like this that is no different from public school. The only christian thing they had was chapel, and none of the kids got into it and alot would try to skip. The teachers can be very unreasonable at times and its just not worth your money. This school has potential, I just wish that they would use it. God Bless.

Our experience at CLCS has been positive. Our oldest was there thru 5th grade, was at least a semester ahead when entering public intermediate school and had no problems taking preAP courses. The lack of support for the teachers from administration has turned around. Our kids have been in classes with alot of parent support and some where we seemed to be the sole parent support. This is a committment the parent (you) have to make. CLCS is not only a private school, it is a Christian school. Along with teaching regular academics, the teachers are committed to teaching Christian values which will guide our children through life. We have only experienced two poor teachers in eight years and three kids. The other 12 were awesome!

We moved our child to this school from a public school. He was so far ahead of the students from CLCS that he was bored. After two years we have moved him back to public school and he is now trying to 'catch up'. Don't be fooled into believing this school is better than the public schools. Your money can be put to better use.

My son has difficulties and has been through the private and public school system and we've even tried homeschool. After many desperate phone calls, this is the only private school in this area that would provide any accomodations for my child. At the first ARD meeting, I was very impressed with the professionalism and it was definitly a more pleasant experience than one at a public school. Over the years, I've seen my child's self-esteem plummet because of his learning difficulties and over the past 6 months at Clear Lake Christian, he is much more confident and happy. Over all, this seems to be a great school. I would hope for stricter enrollment in the future, however, if there is a problem student, they are quickly dealt with. Also, the parent-teacher involvement could be improved, but it's a problem I've had with other schools as well. We will be re-enrolling.

I have three children that attend CLCS, they have all attended since Pre-K, and the oldest is in 10th grade. All three of my children are active and involved in the school and have excelled academically and socially. We have had the opportunity to not only watch but be a part of an institution that has consistantly grown to achieve its goals and vision. Like any growing opportunity the have had their growing pains, but have handled them with the highest level of respect. I believe in the heart of the school and appreciate their attempt to make an investment in the lives of our future generation. I highly recommend CLCS, we have been there for 11 years and consider it to have made a difference in the lives of our children.

As a recent graduate, I found that this school has potential to be a great one. I received a great education and now attend a private Christian University, and have plans to achieve a Masters in Marketing. The facilities are amazing and there are teachers and coaches who care alot. I will say that the Headmaster seems to have no care for what the students or teachers have to say. The school is losing great students and teachers because they pretty much allow anyone to be accepted into the school. If there were stricter admission policies, the school would be less likely to be frowned upon by former families of the school who transferred to First Baptist Christian Academy.

I am a parent of a gifted little boy who has attended CLCS since Kindergarten. The curriculum is very advanced and for a parent who wants the academic best for her child this is the perfect school. A parent of a child at this school must be very involved in helping their child study because to succeed they need to be the cream of the crop. My son's teacher this year is so willing to go the extra mile and I really appreciate her. Most teachers are either certified or will be by the end of the year. I have noticed that many of the parents that complain are unfortunately unwilling to participate in their child's academic success. My child has already learned to write in cursive that is two years earlier than public schools. The teachers are top notch and sacrafice a higher salary because teaching is their calling.

Unfortunately this school has too many problems for me sum up in one paragraph. There is a lot of favortism and there is no real guidance for the staff. They are all floating aimlessly doing their own thing.

Another parent told me about this site. What a wonderful way to bring parents together. My wife and I have not been pleased with the structure of this school. The students are not given the encouragement and education quality they deserve. The school atmosphere is very political, stern, and lacks consideration for the needs of the students.

I would not recommend this school and it will be our first and last year there. The school my children had attended was closed and the student body was steered into this school. These kids were judged before the school year even started as those kids from... Please think twice before attending here. Godspeed!

Now is Clear Lake Christian School and the best school we have ever known of! Just small enough for the best private education, not too small, and large enough for extra cirricular activities. Run, do not walk, to enroll your child here!

the school's professional level has really declined over the past 2 years. Administration and parap-professionals works in a state of confusion with no communication to parents. It seems like money is the bottom line, not your child's welfare. There have been many indiscrepancies with situations. I have been mislead on several occasions. Put your money elsewhere!

They are not very good at helping parents get a student caught up that did not start in their program. My child now has to repeat 2nd grade because I got no help in catching her up.

As a parent of a second grader, I am very pleased with the quality of the education. On the subject of religion, I feel that the school is loosing its original purpose. I would reccomend the school as a very good one up until fifth grade is completed. The high school has much room to grow!

My children and I love our school! In only 6 weeks my son was taught how to read effectively and my husband and I are impressed. The teachers care about the children and my son sincerely loves his teacher very much. This is a great place to get a great education within a loving environment! They start each day with a prayer! My husband and I trully believe this is the best investment we have made thus far!

Unfortunately this school does not offer solid academics. Teacher attrition level is very high.The salary level for teachers is so low that good talent cannot be attracted. The administration is in over its head. Very disorganized and my child learned nothing this year. No accomodation is made for exceptional students and everyone is leaving because of the lack of educational opportunity offered. The curriculum is terrible and very outdated.

Great school but very little parent involvement. I have seen many students go on to attend major universities. Out of one graduating class (6 students) 4 of these 6 were accepted and now attend Texas A & M University. A pretty good ratio. It is hard to keep a staff when only a select few parents choose to help out and support them. Parents lets not let the school raise our children. Lets not wait until our children enter 9th grade and realize we should have been more involved. Grace has a wonderful open door policy and will respond to parent issues. I have had many complaints myself and each one was resolved.

I have had 2 kids attending. one currently. elementary to about grade 4 is decent but most good teachers have left. middle and high school teachers are most unqualified. if you have a degree you can teach any subject. one teacher teaches english, history & science but has a degree in none of these. nor do they have degrees in elem ed or seconday ed. principals come and go sometimes not lasting even a semester. also unqualified. I have been involved in this school for 7 years and know of only one student to attend a regular 4 yr university. when my oldest started in 9th grade the registrar didn't know what classes were required for college admission. they still do not have the faculty to teach these kids the classes they need to be accepted into a state university.
