    "We moved our oldest son over a year ago and are very pleased with the school. We decided to move our younger elementary age son over this year. Public schools in our area, for the most part, are pretty good. No school is going to be perfect; but, we have really enjoyed the transition over to LSA. We personally prefer the smaller school and Christian environment LSA offers."

    "Lutheran South Academy is a blessing to our family and to this community. Not only are they offering top-notch academics in a Christian environment but they also offer incredible opportunity for children to be involved and be well-rounded. I cannot say enough good things about this place and the dedicated people that work there. I've noticed that some reviews complain about the fact that the school supports its athletic programs and wants them to be successful. Thank God that they do!!! No kids want to be attending the high school that is known for losing. LSA had an amazing year this year with almost every single team making the playoffs. Both basketball teams made it to the state final four and the girls golf team won the state championship! With that said, the school definitely promotes high academic standards above all else and supports the fine arts as well. The band, choir and the drama department all had an amazing year too! As a parent of 3 children - I could not be more proud of what this school is. I would highly recommend LSA to any family that is looking for a Christian education that focuses on excellence in everything that they take on."

    "my child has been at LSA for the past two years and I will be enrolling my other child to attend this fall. I cannot begin to tell you what this school community means to my family and the amount of time, love and energy poured out by the entire staff. When choosing a school it is important to spend time with the admin and faculty to make sure it is a good fit. As I read some of the other comments I am discouraged at those who use this site to lash out for personal vendettas, especially those who attack the Christian aspect. This is a Christian school focused on teaching the love of Christ while taking care of the whole student" (body, mind and spirit). This may not be for everyone but it is sad that some try to belittle and reduce a Christian school for teaching about God s Love. Those who are serious about a great education, in a safe environment from teachers who really love their profession, you should come visit. After being in public schools and now at LSA I could not be happier. As for the academic aspect, all you have to do is look at their national test scores and where graduates are attending and you will see that LSA stands above local public & private schools"

    "I enrolled my child in the pre-k 3 program. I had originally thought that she would be graduating from the school she attending - how wonderful to attend 1 school for your entire career. Turns out we are looking for another school and seriously doubt she will be attending high school here. Here is what is emerging.... 1. Elementary classes with 25 students. Ratios are lower in most public schools 2. High emphasis on high school athletics to the detriment of other needed programs....auditorium/ chapel, classroom space, additional teachers 3. High schoolers are spinning tires in parking lots and street next to school with little kids around 4. They stopped publishing where graduates are attending college. Many are going to junior colleges or Lutheran associatedschools. 5. Not all teachers are accredited teachers. 6. They are planning on admitting more students, but not hiring additional teachers. These are just some of the trends that are emerging, in my eyes . Hope this is helpful."

    "We have been at Lutheran South for many years. While every school has its pros and cons, we are now of the opinion that the negatives outweigh the benefits... particularly at the high school level. Athletics are given a disproportionate amount of time, effort and preference. (School was even canceled when the basketball team went to state.) The academics simply are not challenging. We are not convinced that our child will be competitive in their college applications. While a handful of students do end up in superb colleges, this is not true for the majority. For the amount of money spent, this is a tragedy."
