Bethlehem Lutheran School

The objectives of Bethlehem Lutheran School and Preschool are to provide the opportunity for the children to grow in their relationship with God, knowing the love and forgiveness our Lord Jesus Christ has for them through His words in Holy Scripture, so that they know and love our Lord as Savior and are able to grow in their relationship with their Savior, their family, and their church; provide a comprehensive program of education where children may develop their knowledge, talents, and skills for responsible Christian living and service, while experiencing a positive environment; to provide a Christ-centered environment where children can develop strong inner resources- confidence, independence, initiative, and creativity and to provide a preschool program which offers learning experiences that vary as each child's differences and abilities are recognized and respected.
This program promotes kindergarten readiness through the development of verbal skills, large and small motor skills, social skills, and rhythmical skills; and to provide an environment in which students recognize and respect the uniqueness and individuality of themselves and others.

As a non-Lutheran, I felt that it was especially important to write this review. My son has been attending BLS Carson City for two years now, and I am SO incredibly grateful that this school exists! Not only have the teachers taken the time to focus in on his learning style so that he can be successful and increase his self-esteem, but they (and the rest of the staff and administration) are warm, kind, professional, helpful, attentive, and caring! Moreover, the children excel in academia, class sizes are small, and bullying and inappropriate behavior in not tolerated. I will certainly keep my child in Bethlehem Lutheran, and plan to send him on to the "sister" high school, Sierra Lutheran. Please note that it is not required for you to be Lutheran to attend this school, but that there is a strong emphasis on attending some type of Christian church. My son has learned about God in this school, and I am so grateful that he is learning values, morals, life lessons, and to, overall, be a good and loving person!

My boys have been at BLS for 7 years and we cannot be happier. The staff is caring and I love that the teachers get to know the students at every grade not just their own classrooms. My boys have been active in sports, music, spelling bees and other activities from a much younger age than is available in the public schools. The curriculum is challenging and sets them up well for high school. I'm excited for their future and thankful we made the decision to have them attend BLS.

The reason this school is so remarkable is because of the first grade teacher, Mrs Cheryl Henry. I couldn't imagine sending my children anywhere else for their education. Mrs. Henry truly makes the school. She is kind, loving, hardworking and genuine. She is truly an asset to the school and I cannot say enough nice things about her. She is a model teacher and the epitome of what a parent wants in a loving and Christian teacher. Thank you Mrs. Henry! You have changed our lives!

I am a parent of a student, as well as an alumnus. I am so pleased that my child is in a Christian, loving environment. Top-notch educational standards are a bonus!

We are two boys and three years into our BLCS experience, and we cound't be much happier! The boys have grown academically, emotionally, and socially beyond our expectations. The principal, teachers, and staff interact with the students and parents amazingly. I am very satisfied with the school's guidance and support of our children's spiritual upbringing. The only downside - one of the boys'' classroom size is rather large (but the other one is great!).

Caring and devoted teachers with wonderful support staff and administration. Strong curriculum but teachers are committed to each child's success. The biblical curriculum is excellent as well. We are so happy here.

My son came to BLS from a private school in the Napa Valley. He was warmly welcomed (he came in 6th grade) well challenged and, although we are Catholic, the Christian atmosphere of the school was no change from the lay run Catholic school that he came from. The teachers at BLS are strong, caring individuals. They have fun with their students, but they also expect hard work from the kids. I would highly recommend this school to parents looking for a challenging Christ-based morally solid school for their child(ren).
