We joined the Emmanuel family two years ago, and have been so impressed with the quality of the academic programs and the care and attention that our children receive from the staff and faculty. Our children are attending for the 3rd year this fall in 4th and 6th grade, and have participated in many of the afterschool and extracurricular activities as well. The teachers take a genuine interest in the development of the children in their classroom, and communicate frequently with parents about both concerns and successes of your child often. Choose this school. Your child will thrive in a learning environment that is supportive, inclusive, and focused on a well-rounded academic education.

My children attend Sonshine Preschool and Emmanuel Lutheran School. They love it as much as I do. Class sizes are small and the teachers are attentive. Teachers work closely with parents to provide a supportive & effective learning environment. My girls are excelling in their academics, fine arts, social, and emotional skills. They are also looking forward to join the sport programs. Other families at the school have been welcoming and supportive as well. It`s become our village! I highly recommend!

We have been blessed by the ministry at this school. We have enjoyed Emmanuel`s competitive sports programs, small class sizes, and Christ-centered education. We know and trust that our children will be prepared for their academic, social, and eternal future with Jesus from their time at Emmanuel.

I have two children who attend Emmanual. Both were in the Sonshine Preschool program last year and this year one will still be in preschool and the other in kindergarten. Both of my children have excelled so much, both emotionally and academically. The teachers are so caring to each students needs and with smaller class sizes they actually have the ability to do so! It's not just a school, it's a family! I would recommend this school to everyone!

My daughter attended preschool at Emmanuel Lutheran School for the past two years. As parents, we were extremely impressed with the one on one attention she received, the new preschool building, and the love displayed by teachers, students, and staff. Keep up the hard work!

My son attended Sonshine Preschool last year and he LOVED it!!! He was always excited to share what he had learned at school that day. The Teachers are absolutely wonderful and work with each student to help them grow both spiritually and academically. He will be attending Kindergarten at Emmanuel Lutheran which is where Sonshine Preschool is located. I highly recommend this Preschool, you will not be disappointed. My older son has also attended Emmanuel since Pre-School and will be entering 4th Grade in the fall. He loves the school and the Teachers. Emmanuel has become like a second family to us. We are so blessed to have our boys at a school where we feel they are safe and are growing in their faith as well as their academics.

Every private school parent is encouraged to help the school in whatever way he can. Here are some things you can do to make a contribution to your school.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
