The new administration has streamlined many processes and is not only professional but accessible and caring. In many states parents choose parochial education because the public schools are not strong. The Mequon/Thiensville school system is very strong and yet families love what Lumen Christi offers. That speaks volumes. Parents choose Lumen Christi not only for academics but for the other things that form our children: community, smaller class size= more attention, and faith-centered curriculum. These elements are celebrated. Lumen Christi is not diverse in terms of culture, nor is the community it is in. Nor is the northshore of Milwaukee. Mequon/Thiensville has less than 8% ethnic representation. With that said, Thiensville's median income is 53K and median house cost is 230K. Mequon's median household income is 100K and house price is 373K. There's a good spectrum of diverse socio economic status coming together at Lumen Christi which is refreshing. The 4K full day program truly prepares students to hit the ground running in 5K. Mrs. Milazzo(4K), Michele Neuville(5K) are phenomenal educators. Mrs Ittner's use of technology in 2nd grade brings family into the class. Wonderful

Good school but currently faces administrative issues such as principle selection. Start kids early, because it may be difficult to fit in, if you haven't found your group. Also not so diverse (white). Good faith education and english as well as social studies, but poor math and okay sciences. As compared to public schools, the highest level you can be as a freshman in high school is Geometry, because of a lack advance math programs. A great guidance service, Mrs. L, and overall caring teachers. Good facilities and technology such as SMART Boards, that teachers make an effort to use. Students do have to wear uniforms, but I found that was better in a way, you don't have to worry about what to wear-there are regular clothes days. Overall good school, but some school processes could be streamlined. Overall pretty good, you'll make some good friends. (Also go to the same high school that your friends go to, as it will make it more enjoyable experience)

This is a fabulous school that has successfully combined faith beliefs, academics, service, and extra-curriculars into school life. The school community is truly a family.

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 teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
