I would say that Ben Lippen is a high quality christian school overall. The teachers are very encouraging and engaging with the students. the sports are a very competitive environment, the coaches are nice but do challenge a students mental and physical strength. the food is better than most other schools. the administration is very strict but also very encouraging. The classes are tough but the teachers help out as much as possible by providing extra work, hands on activities, movies related to the lessons, and other stuff to help the student better understand the course.
Ben Lippen School prepares students for the future in all areas. I could not imagine our children being enrolled in other school in Columbia, SC. There are so many opportunities for the children to get involved from Honor Society, Leadership Teams, Class Officers, Worship Arts, Drama, Robotics, Guitar, Math Team, Athletics and much more! Our Administration, Faculty and Coaches are amazing with the students. They build life long relationships and keep in touch with them for many years after.
