    I for one enjoy the small setting. Students get more individual attention and interact with one another on a more personal level.

    My child is enrolled at RA Lewis. The school is great. The small size makes it more of a family environment. The teachers are always available to talk and they give a very excellent personalized education for my child. My child has also learned to play the chimes which we think is great.

    Teachers are unwilling to listen to parents concerns especially if you are not a SDA follower. Zero discipline children are allowed to bully others. Zero sports activities or extra-curricular activities. They seem more interested in the money than an actual learning environment.

    My son went to RAL for 8 years. They had excellent teachers who prepared him well. He has now been accepted into the pre-engineering specialty program with Chesterfield County a highly competitive program. He also scored extremely well on his PSAT's. The small classroom size allowed for very individualized attention and education. Awesome Christian environment!
