Excellent school! Both of my children have attended CLCS since kindergarten. One is now a senior in college and doing well. CLCS has well educated and Godly teachers. Regarding the comment made about expelled public school kids corrupting your children " Hogwash" They wouldn't last long enough. Thank God for CLCS it's a great school.

Cross Lanes Christian School is a wonderful place! The school not only has high academic standards, but a strong spiritual emphasis and caring spirit permeates the campus. Our son loved his time at CLCS and has gone on to excell in his college career. We are grateful to God for CLCS!

My only advise is to really think hard and pray about placing your child in the school. It was a great school in the past, but it is hard for private schools to keep up with public schools today. Elementary is not a problem, but once Junior High is started, problems will become more apparent. It is easier to not start at all than taking them out and losing the friends that they have made (if they do make some that is).

Cross Lanes Christian has an excellent faculty and staff that are: 1) well-educated themselves and 2) very involved and caring people. Just like anywhere else when dealing with people, some make mistakes but the student's best interest are put first and foremost. The school makes an effort to work with parents instead of against them or (just as bad) ignoring them. I currently have two students at the school and love the education they are getting. You won't regret having your children at CLCS.

We have about 15 years experience with CLCS. CLCS has an excellent college preparatory program. Our children have had little trouble competing in their public universities. #1 Strength: The teachers and staff care deeply about the kids' spiritual and academic well being. # 2 Strength: solid, well-taught curriculum, especially for math, science, and English. # 3 Strength: continual improvement in facilities. Things to change: #1 the uniform policy (please drop it). #2 wider use of the InfoDirect system for keeping parents and students up-to-date on homework assignments and other announcements. Any hassles we've had were trivial and would have occurred in any institution. It makes a difference to know the faculty and staff are praying for your children!

I went there and am now in college. I learned a lot there from great teachers and had amazing friends. This school helps you learn about a Christian perspective of education but will still give you a great education. So far I am doing great in college because of the study habits I learned at Cross Lanes. It has changed a little in the last years, but not necessarily a bad change. I am looking forward to the future of this school as long as the parents will be supportive of the school.

i went there for years upon years. the school seemed like it flowed well while principle nelson was there. my brothers both also attended. once nelson left, the place declined. and has yet to come back up. i left. i have no regrets. i miss my friends. i miss a few of [the few] caring teachers. i miss my friends. the curriculum, i dont miss. i dont miss bible. i feel like i get just as much from FCA and other bible studies i'm in as i did from bible class 3 days a week. the place has its own ways to do things. they dont want to adapt to modern worship styles. styles of worship that reach out to the students, the main focus of the school. its not a ministry. its a business. better off in public.

The absolute worst thing to happen to my son. I wouldn't advise anyone to even consider this school as an option. When my son transferred from Cross Lanes Christian he suffered greatly because he was not prepared for honors or AP classes in a public school (even though he had been an A student). Cross lanes did not prepare him for the real world. The teachers and staff are stuck in their ways and unforgiving of the smallest mistake. Furthermore graduating from a small christian school with no standards is looked down on by secular colleges.

this school is well driven and the teachers care about what the parents have to say, sometimes. in the past couple years though, it has gone downhill due to a new principal and do this? its not bad!!' also, it is filled with public school kids who were expelled and will quickly corrupt your kid with sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

Excellent...EXCELLENT school! Consistantly rates among the highest academically in the state. There is no doubt that the teachers love our children and pour themselves into their profession. Parents are well informed and encouraged to be involved. The school provides a safe, peaceful environment for students, parents and faculty. The school may prove diffcult for those who do not apply themselves, yet, offers superior assistance to those who may struggle.

Cross Lanes Christian School is an excellent institution! I cannot say enough about the quality of the leadership and academics. The teachers care about the students inside and outside of the classroom. If you desire for your child to have the best educational experience possible, then send him to CLCS!

This school is very homework driven. You can expect 3-5 hours of homework a night(even on Wednesday- teachers ignore the rules). You will have at least one test a day and be expected to pass each one with C, or you will be olaced on academic probation. It is good college prep school, but be prepared to teach yourself. Teachers present more than teach and move very quickly. This school is not for academically challenged kids or kids that need extra help.

I have a daughter enrolled in Cross Lanes Christian. I have two sons who have graduated from CLCS and are excelling in college. We have been very pleased with how this school has prepared our children for college and for life.
