    LWCS teachers make the difference. The experience talent and dedication of these teachers is demonstrated every single day both academically and in the way they care for their students. This school is a cut above the rest.

    Lake Worth Christian School is an excellent educational experience for both students and parents alike. The mission of "Growing Christian Leaders" isn't just a statement it is lived each day at the school. It would be upsetting to have to send our kids to school anywhere else. Thank you to all the staff teachers and support personnel for all you to to make the educational experience of our kids a positive one.

    I have a child in high school middle school and elementary and love the school and teachers. Per the website all classroom teachers have their degrees and a majority have their masters! My children are challenged appropriately and the peer pressure they receive is to try for an A rather than an A-. Their friends are great kids who come from church attending families. We are very happy here.

    This school is not a good school at all. A number of there teachers lose assignments and projects then give you a zero. The reason my review isn't a 1 Star is because they do have a good Christan environment. Also the school is very overpriced. You will be lucky if they give you finical aid if you get it they will barley take off any money. The kids at this school are very rude and do not have any respect for each other. In the LWCS welcoming video they say they are 2 grade levels above the public school (for the middle school) while the grade averages for middle schoolers and high schoolers is a D. LWCS has insane detention rules. For instance if you get a Saturday detention it will be for 4 hours and you have to work (cleaning up class rooms raking up leaves ect.). I am a student at LWCS and this is by far the worst school I have been to. I have been to 10 different schools and 11 different houses. If you want to send your child to LWCS you will be wasting $12 000.

    My children have attended LWCS for four years. This school uses religion/Christianity to lure hopeful parents to spend thousands for a sub-standard education. The majority of teachers are not certified to teach their subject and fail to possess a fair and caring Christian manner. My children will NOT attend LWCS next year.

    I've attended this school for more than 3 years now and it's turned around my life. I learned to be a better Christian and so much more. Most of the teachers are great people who really want everybody to succeed. They actually care about you too induvidually. I like it much better than any other school I've attended and I definitely recommend considering to go here.

    I recently left LWCS and went to Park Vista Community High School. LWCS has gone way too far with money wise raising the tuition to $9000 and they're raising it more each year. Also now you have to pay $100 for your child to play a sport and you have to pay $4 to attend their home game. That's ridiculous. Although the teachers are great and they actually care about your grades.

    This is our children's second year at LWCS. We have 1 girl in 2nd grade and 1 boy in 9th. They are both very happy. My son has attended many Christian Schools (through no fault of his own) & he's never been happier. The curriculum is diverse & challenging many of the teachers have their masters a few teach at the college. The parents are Very envolved. They offer music & numerous sports but no longer offer Track & Field. LWCS is one of the best Christian Schools in this area.

    While the Christian principles set forth by most of the teachers are great just about everything else is lacking. The only extracurricular activities offered throughout the year are mainly sports. What about the kids that have no interest in athletics? The art department is far too small and severely underfunded. I have yet to see a recent graduate of LWCS do anything financially successful. Honestly the only good thing I can say about LWCS is that the teachers are Christians and that a select few of those teachers are good at what they do. It seems the administration likes to run off the good teachers.

    Our daughters attend LWCS and we have been there for nine years. The teachers are unbelievable examples of true christian leaders. They go beyond what is expected and we could not ask for a better extension of our home. We have 435 students for 2005/2006 school year. The school has a wonderful sports music and art programs. The school also has an AP classes for High School. Parent involvement is wonderful and is welcomed at all levels.

    This is the first year for our daughter at LWCS and she has adjusted very well we couldn't be happier. The fact that the class sizes are small and the teachers know her by name is a bonus. We see our daughter growing every day at LWCS.

    This school gives individual attention and allows one to become a young adult gracefully. It also prepares one for the challenges that college will bring.
