First Evangelical Lutheran School
- First Lutheran School was first organized in 1859 by Pastor Fachtmann, our first Pastor, who maintained it for 7 years before the first teacher was hired.
- Remaining as a Christian day school since its inception, our school blossomed from only a few pupils to a record enrollment of 295 students set in 1961.
- In recent years, our school has maintained a fairly stable enrollment of about 115 students.
- We assist families in the spiritual growth of their children to know and live for their Savior Jesus Christ in all areas of their lives.
