I have a child that been attending Christ Lutheran since pre school. She''s now in the 6 grade. We are so grateful to have such a tight group of Teachers and Parents That get Involved with with the students. It''s a blessing to find a Good School in a nice community as south hills. Keep up the Good work Christ Lutheran. Our daughter have two more years there. Keep pushing her, and prepare her for high school. The Glory belongs to God.

I have two children (grade school & middle school) attending CLS and they both have had a great learning experience. Most of the teachers are very caring and nurturing. The teachers they have/had, have taken a great interest in making sure that the children understand the curriculum. Mrs. Curtis, Mrs. Annis, and Mrs. Smith (1st, 3rd, and 4th grades) are in my children''s opinions, the best teachers. They know how to capture the students imagination and make learning fun. Mrs. Mortensen (middle school math) is great with the kids. My middle schooler has really enjoyed all the outdoor education trips. The children are taught to be well rounded and the school takes part in a few community charitable events. If your child is advanced in math, they will allow them to take math with the higher grades if the child tests into it. All the teachers are credentialed and most have a Masters Degree. The campus is fully gated and they do have cameras throughout the school (which unfortunately is a good thing now a days). The school also has a great PE and after school sports programs.

If your child is advanced in math, they will allow them to take math with the higher grades if the child tests into it. All the teachers are credentialed and most have a Master''s Degree. Each classroom does have a teacher''s aide. As with any school, parent involvement plays a key role in a child''s academic achievement. The campus is fully gated and they do have cameras throughout the school (which unfortunately is a good thing now a days). The school also has a great PE and afterschool sports programs.
