Our Curriculum

Lake Worth Christian School teaches an advanced curriculum from a Christian perspective. Textbooks are one tool we use, and we make textbook selections annually, based on a rotating cycle. We choose the best textbooks available and our teachers integrate the Christian perspective into all of their courses.  Websites are another frequently used tool, and all classrooms come equipped with an internet projection unit so teachers are free to teach from websites they find useful.

Iowa Test Results

The results are in and once again our elementary students have fared very well on our standardized test! All of our classes tested above the national average for their grade levels with 3rd, 4th and 5th grade testing at a very impressive 5th, 6th and 7th grade level respectively! The 7.3 score for 5th grade means they scored as 7th graders in their 3rd month of school. If they were "average" 5th graders they would have scored a 5.7 since they took the test in the 7th month of this school year. Hooray for the students and their teachers!
