My family love East Linn, our kids have been going there for years. Our oldest just graduated. We love the encouraging atmosphere. No school is perfect, but a school that teaches forgiveness and works at building self-esteem to succeed is just what my kids thrive on. This school is a blessing to our family, plus God is at the center of it.

My children all went to ELCA, it is a wonderful school with a family feel. My children went on to be successful at college and work. I still support the school because I want it to be thriving when my grandchildren are able to attend.
