St. Matthew's Lutheran School began in 1922 when members built a two-room school, which also served as the congregation's first worship facility.
The lower level of the present school building was completed in 1952, and the second floor was added in 1962.
Since it's humble beginnings, God has blessed St. Matthew's with continued growth, caring teachers, and supportive families.
The current school has ten classrooms and enrolls children from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8.
St. Matthew's Lutheran School is operated by St. Matthew's Lutheran Church and is part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
WELS congregations like St. Matthew's have operated elementary schools for over 150 years.
The 359 WELS schools in 27 states and two foreign countries make up our nation's fourth largest school system.
The dedicated, nurturing, teachers and staff of St. Matthew's are united in their mission to "assist parents in the Christian training of their children." As children are nurtured in this way, their faith grows.
As faith grows, it doesn't remain static; it becomes evident the caring hearts, respectful attitudes, and conscientious work of the students.
Students at St. Matthew's not only know there is a God, they know who God is, what God did to save them, and how they can express gratitude to God by the way they live their lives.
St. Matthew's Lutheran School exists to make disciples for the Lord's kingdom through Christian education, assisting parents in the training of their children as we grow in God's inerrant Word, serving and glorifying Him.
