St Martins Lutheran School

Grades: PK-8 | 142 students
A Christian school is able to make God's Word the foundation of all that is done and taught.
As parents it is our responsibility to "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6).
We want our children to grow up knowing Jesus as their Savior so that they may live a God-pleasing life on this earth and finally have eternal life in heaven.
At St. Martin's we have the privilege of providing a Christian education for more than 200 of Jesus' precious lambs, from the age of four through the 8th grade.
Jesus is the focus of our grade school.
Christ's love for us is at the center of the curriculum, it is the motivation for excellence, and it guides our conduct in and out of the classroom.
All subject material is taught from a Christian perspective.
Discipline is carried out in a God-pleasing way, with an emphasis on training children to follow Jesus in thankful living.
Reverence for God and His Word, Respect for those in authority, Respect for others, and Christian self-concepts.
