School Notes:

  • OUR PHILOSOPHY Messiah Lutheran School is committed to the growth of children as Christian individuals--spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Our service to children and their families is done in a spirit of celebration and preparation. In our environment of nuturing Christian love and academic rigor, students are taught appropriately for their age, stage of development, grade level, and individual needs. Our high standards for students' achievement both celebrate the gifts that God has invested in them and prepare them to use these gifts.
