It is also important to note that we involve our parents in the process. We conduct a bi-annual survey on our entire program and then a bi-annual survey on just the spiritual portion of our program. We also involve a group of 30 individuals from 20 different churches to help us develop ideas for our five-year plans. We are a board-run school with a lot of parent involvement.
