My son has Brandon Fernandez been assisting in this school since Sophmore year and I'm amaze of the support, love and encouragement he has received from coaches, teachers and principal of the school. He has received personal attention, tutoring from the begining and now in his Senior year he keeps saying is the best school and loves it. The school material is good, advanced and challenging. The school offers opportunities of Dual Credit and AP courses that my son has been able to benefit. Also, he has participated in sports and has been an amazing experience for him. Most important, other than our church, his has received good christian teaching and has experienced the love of the Lord through the school staff. We recommend this school. Shamarie Rodriguez

I'm with the last poster. Stay away from this school. The elementary school is pretty good but the upper school is horrid. Lakeland is now basically a private school with a couple of Bible verses thrown in every now and then. If you want your child going to a school where each subject is taught with a Biblical worldview, this place is not it. The high school kids (which some have been there for several year) are leaving fast. Do not send your child there.

My children have been going here since Kindergarten and we love it! I read some of the reviews saying the kids can't be themselves? All I can say to that is they must be VERY disruptive in class! These teachers are the most professional, loving and gifted teachers around! See for yourself! My children learn about the Bible and how to be a well rounded person. With academics, social skills and Faith how could you go wrong? Best school ever! My kids will graduate from here with one of the best educations around!

This is a ridiculous excuse for a christian school. Stay far away from this place. There is a reason it's the cheapest Christian school in DFW.

This school is a true blessing. We moved our oldest to private after a bad experience with our local "high" rated public school. Our son went from C's to all A's with a couple B's. He is happy and making friends. He had a few issues with self control and while the school could have removed him, they saw more than just those issues in him as a whole, That meant more to us than we can say. The principle truly cares about our child and his teacher is structured with high expectations, He adores her! The whole school seems well run, we receive weekly emails so we know what is going on in each class as well as notifications if a low grade is reached. We are able to help him at home and encourage him to do what is expected at school.

I really love this school, my child is extremely excited about going here. Hated the neighborhood school she is slotted to attend. The morals of the kids were horrid. The language and dress code was not enforced and after her belongings were stolen, we said that was enough. We started mid year and went back this year. Teachers are very devoted to the learning environment, cares about their needs and has fun with them. We only have one issue and hoping that will be taken care of in the next year. There isn't a school out there that is perfect. You just need to find the right one for your child. As far as I'm concerned, she will be there till she graduates. My child is an A student, is in band, and this year they started the first chapter of NJHS. Excited about the coming years at LCA.

My children are now in high school and have been at this wonderful school for at least 7 years. We left for 3 years for a homeschool program, big mistake, and were welcomed back with open arms. This is not only a Christian school with overly qualified teachers, but the small class size allows all the students to be reached by the teachers and a chance to stand out in their classes. This is not true in the huge public high schools. The teachers really care if your child is learning and make every effort to help them reach their full potential. I highly recommend this schoo to anyone who loves their child and wants them to succeed.

It's a great school! This is my daughter fourth year, and we are happy with this school. I was surprised reading previous reviews submitted by teacher back in 2012. We never had any experience like that. My daughter loves this school. We are impressed that other teachers who don't teach our daughter know my daughter; they say hi and talk to her. Great loving environment.Teachers are highly qualified. We really feel that we get more than what we paying for.

I enrolled my daughter when she was 2 and she is now going through the fours program. My daughter LOVES her school. The teachers are very interested in the well being of the students. I am very impressed with the level of communication between teachers and parents. I have also had the pleasure of meeting several of the elementary and specials teachers, who I personally know are highly qualified by Texas BOE standards. I have student taught or worked with several of them in the public school setting. These particular teachers taught and thrived in the public school system for 20+ years before bringing their experience and love for education to the classrooms of LCA. Being an education major, I have examined their application process and it appears to be thorough. I also like the fact that the students who attend here have the opportunity to do so many neat things. LCA works hard to build enriching experiences for students and provide extracurricular activities like theater, music, and athletics. Main thing- my daughter loves it and so do I! I look forward to many more great experiences with this school.

Very cold environment with unqualified teachers at the elementary level. Intimidation is used to control classroom. Not a creative school. Students are not allowed to make mistakes. How is that for a Christian School? Son went to school with outgoing personality and developed insecurities after attending that school. No individuality allowed there. He's afraid to express himself. I guess you get what you pay for.

Not the right environment for outgoing creative child. Had to remove our daughter for she was not allowed to be herself. School is run on intimidation! Students are not allowed to speak up. Parents be careful for child won't even know it's happening to them. Elementary school teachers are not qualified.

If you want small class sizes, a Christian influence and learning environment, Lakeland is a great school. The tuition is fair and affordable. The parents are all very nice and you get a good diversity ratio among the students. There is a wonderful music program attached to the church that offers lessons during recess or after school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
