Shekinah PortraitWhat do you love most about Tree of Life Christian Schools?

I love that Tree of Life is a family community

What is one word that best describes the school? Tell us why you chose that word.

Family. I chose this word because like a family, we have relationship problems, but in the end almost everyone ends up accepting each other.

Describe one of your favorite teachers and the impact that this person has in your life.

My favorite teacher, Mrs. Cousens, builds me up. I know that she cares about my life and I feel comfortable confiding in her.

How are faith and learning integrated at Tree of Life?

Faith is integrated through the teachers. My teachers apply Christian principles to the lessons they’re teaching.

In what ways are Tree of Life preparing you for college and life?

Tree of Life is preparing me for college by telling me the kind of scenarios and giving me the information to avoid certain obstacles.
