Why did you make the switch to Ben Lippen School? We knew we didn’t like what we saw in the public schools. We looked at several private schools in the Columbia area. We felt that Ben Lippen’s focus on Christ-centered education without sacrificing academics was the right choice for our daughter.
What made the 5th grade so special for your child? Her teachers and classmates. Camp Seawee was great and she is enjoying participating in the play.
How has Ben Lippen helped your children thrive? Emma and Noah have both grown in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment provided by BLS. Most importantly, they have failed at small things and moved past them to grow into better people with the supportive environment at BLS.
What advice would you give families who are considering Ben Lippen School? You will know if it is the right fit. Do your homework.
What do your children like best about Ben Lippen? The sense of community. The fifth graders know the pre-K children and vice versa. This sense of community makes children feel comfortable and protected. The continuity of rules also adds to this sense. I believe my children have thrived in this environment.
