Can anyone tell me about William H. Keyser? I think he worked at New Life Christian school, but not sure. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

New Life Christian is an amazing school. The teachers are totally dedicated to the Lord and to teaching children. I love this school because the teachers work with each student individually to find their strengths and the positive aspect about EVERY student. The staff is here because they LOVE kids and students - it is more than a job to them, it is their desire to make our children the best that they can be now and for the future.

You can expect the typical things you would find in any organization run by small town busybodies. The big shot farm families get to call the shots and woe to any outsider who wants to try to change their nice little world. I had expected more from a christian school.

This school is the best thing that has ever happened to my children. Not only are the academics explempary, the way the teachers raise up the children is something that I would never find in a public school I love that the teachers teach the whole child about life, god, and the abc's and 123's.

Our son has attended New Life his entire school life, he will start the 6th grade Aug. 08'. NLCS has always been a great school, however, two years ago a new Administrator came aboard and our school continues to get better and better! If you want your child to have a first rate education, and do it in a wonderful Christian enviroment, NLCS is the school!

This school has been a Godsend for my children. Although we sacrifice financially, the quality of education and the caring teachers at this school make it more than worthwhile!

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.
