Our children have attended CLS since pre-K, and I can''t imagine having a better experience with a school. CLS fosters a caring, compassionate environment while providing outstanding academic programs. The faculty is fantastic - a wealth of experience with such a loving attitude. Our dedicated principal works tirelessly to drive CLS into the future while preserving the culture that makes CLS so inviting. We are truly blessed to be a part of the CLS family.

CLS has been a great school for our family. It offers excellent academic preparation for its students as they move into high school. Our youngest is a current eighth grader and is active in school sports and band in addition to his studies. Our older two children are now in college, and both excelled at a highly rated public high school due in large part to their preparation at CLS. The teachers provide a great balance of nurturing and discipline for a great classroom environment. We have a strong principal that has a vision to the future while embracing the important traditions of the school. All types of students can flourish at CLS, which offers programs for both gifted and special needs students.

Christ Lutheran School has the best teachers and staff, who will love, teach, and share God''s love to your children. We could not have asked for a better learning environment. Our children have been there since pre-school and the oldest will be graduating 8th grade this year. This is a bitter sweet time, as we decide our daughter''s next step. We do know that CLS has helped prepare her for what ever lies ahead.

My daughter has attended Christ Lutheran School since Pre-K3. She is now in 3rd grade and we are continuously delighted with her academic progress. The teachers at Christ Lutheran really care about the children and it shows! My daughter loves Christ Lutheran, her teachers, and the staff. We are very excited about Heidi Guelzow''s dedication and vision for the school.

Absolutely love Christ Lutheran. Can not say enough good things. Teachers are awesome! They all are wonderful Christian examples which I love. Academics are outstanding. My older child is now in High School and was very prepared when she left CLS. I highly recommend this school. The kids receive a lot of individual attention. My daughter loves to go to school and that says a lot!

CLS is a great school with fantastic faculty and resources. Small class sizes and extra "reach-out" program if your child needs any extra assistance. We love the school and faculty. Our child loves it just as much, if not more. Great school!!!!

Class size is small, which allows for individualized attention. Staff is outstanding and really care about each child''s success. Academics are challenging, but not overwhelming.
