  • I go here and I think it is a great school. Of course students are going to complain about it, but think about it what child doesn't complain about school. Anyways the curriculum is great, and the students are kind. Unfortunatly there isn't any transportation, but the perks are hot lunch, for middleschool students they teach them about anti-violence and pre-marrital intercources. For all children they give you teachers you can trust, I go to Living Word and you get teachers that care for your education. I know some teachers at my old schools they seemed as if they don't care. Teachers here make sure you learn the concept and pass. For more good informative information go to lwca.ws or lwca.ws/middleschool and that will show you all you want to know. Hopefully if you enroll your student they will enjoy it!

  • I'm very interested to know if children outside the Bellwood area can attend and is their transportation. I have 2 nephews who really need to get out of the CPS system. They are in 5th and 6th grade. I'm trying to help save them from the inner city system. How much would each cost?
