Absolutely. My child left her snow gear bag by the entrance of the school. This bag had her snow pants, her hat, her gloves, and her snow boots in the bag. It was a clear plastic bag with all the contents visible and the total contents' estimated value was at least $100.00. When we arrived to school the next day, the bag was still sitting on the bench where she left. I was amazed. This situation proved to me that the students at Christian Life School are honest, trustworthy, and respectful.
Thank you Mrs. Ganser (1st grade) and Mrs. Wollnick (kindergarten) for really taking the time to know my daughter. Your cheerfulness and encouragement have helped her gain confidence in herself.
Thank you Ms. Julie and Ms. Amy in K-4 for helping to bring my daughter out of her little shell. She has grown exponentially since being cared for and loved by the both of you!
The teachers are very good with correcting children and building them up at the same time. Teachers do not destroy kids' hearts with punitive and damaging harshness. Instead, they are calm and encouraging. My oldest daughter can be a little sensitive; however, the teachers recognize this tendency in her and show her love while also correcting her.
My daughter in K-4 has "recommended" activities in her fun folder that take less than 5 minutes to complete. She enjoys doing them and showing the teacher the next day. My daughter in first grade has daily homework that takes her less than 10-15 minutes to complete. The spelling sheets and worksheets are fun with pictures and silly phrases.
Teachers and coaches share encouraging words, inspirational thoughts, and build confidence in their students/athletes. They teach and demonstrate an attitude of trying your best. I heard one coach say to a student-athlete, "You may not be the best on every day, but you can give the best of yourself."
Yes. I have witnessed caring and encouraging comments from teachers and students. I have not witnessed situations of bullying, disrespect, or demeaning behavior. I am very impressed by how many students hold the door open for their fellow classmates or for parents carrying infants and several bags.
Christian Life School in Kenosha, WI is an amazing school with quality teachers who really care about their students. Both my daughters have gone through the Early Education program and my oldest daughter is completing first grade in the elementary school. I love that the curriculum of Christian Life School incorporates a nondenominational interactive faith-based education. The curriculum is ahead of the public school system by one year which means that the students at Christian Life are being challenged and receiving learning opportunities at an advanced schedule. I truly believe this is successful because the class sizes are small, very personal, and very encouraging. My daughter in K4 has a class size of 9-14 students because not all students come daily and my first grader has a class size of 19 students. I love that the students go on field trips like the Milwaukee Zoo, Appleholler, a farm in Greenfield, a Pinocchio play, and more. Every day, the school principals and school administrator greet the children and parents... and they know each child and parent by name! Christian Life School offers a variety of sports and fine arts options for all ages which helps to develop well-rounded students who mature with a variety of experiences. In addition, one of my favorite programs is the "Buddy Program" where an older student is paired with a younger student. I believe that this is crucial to preventing bullying because when older students know the "little kids," they are involved with them and protect them as if they are their little brother or sister. Christian Life School is a phenomenal school that inspires children and encourages them to mature responsibly and lovingly.
