DR BRENDA NOACH Christian private school is fully accredited by both national and regional accrediting agencies and registered and liscence in the State of Wisconsin. A great school with challenging academic programs with strong principal/ school leadership and excellent certified teachers.The 3 story facility of 60, 000 sq ft is located conveniently on 12th and Garfield with all school amenities such as Basket ball court, 2 Tennis R courts, swimmingpool, running trek and many others. It is indeed a great priviledge and honor to serve our youth at such a beautiful location in a Christian environment.
This is the worst school I have ever even heard of. By all means, DO NOT send your children here if you love them at all. Violent fights are a daily occurrence. Teachers rotate in and out every few weeks because of the terrible work conditions, poor treatment by the administrators, and complete lack of support. Every year, they hire the necessary teachers and staff to meet accreditation standards and then force those staff members into resigning by cutting their hours. This school is dishonest, dangerous, and completely ineffective as an institute of learning.
Since my children have changed school from public to a Christian private school the change in their behavior have truelly become a blessing to have them at home after school hours. They are optimistic about doing their homework assignments, they have excelled academically they sing while doing household chores, they pray each evening together.
Not impressed. The school is small and in an unlikely location for a school. My 3rd grader and my 5th grader were in the same class and given the same school work. That just didn't seem right. On the 3rd day they ran out of lunches and didn't have enough for all the kids. The vans that pick them up have to make 2 trips to get all the students, so they were picking up my kids at 6:10 am! I've also heard at least one of their teachers (they only have a few) is not even certified. They have no art teacher, no music teacher, no phy. ed. teacher, etc. Phy. ed. actually consisted of them getting YMCA memberships for the kids and taking them there once a week. The folks running the school seem very nice and all, but I'm not sure it's the best option for my kids.
The program offerings have developed my daughter academically and her behaviour has improved. The teacher goes to great length to care and support the students personally. They communicate openly and clearly with parents.Discipline procedures are clear and are carried out consistently. Bullying, gang activities and oppressive behavior, such as sexism and racism, are not tolerated. Students feel safe when they are dropped off at the school, the campus is tidy, the restrooms and cafeteria are left clean. The school provides breakfast,lunch, snacks plus transportation. My daughter receives music instruction and the opportunity to participate in the girls basket ball team besides the monthly student fellowship activities As a parent I serve in a leadership role on the school site council, PTA and in other organizations. I have had a variety of opportunities to interact and have input with the administration staff, teachers and parents such as school events and classroom projects
