First German, located in Manitowoc, is professionally run yet shows kindness and concern for each child as an individual. The teachers are communicative and flexible. They truly care for the students and their growth - emotionally and academically. The experienced teachers carefully consider each students` learning level. The children get a great balance of academics, nurturing, extracurriculars, and fun. God and His Word are a part of each day. First German offers a strong fine arts program. My children enjoy being a part of the choir, band, and drama program. I love that piano lessons (optional) are taught during the school day right on campus! When I drive past the campus and see my children playing outdoors at recess, laughing and having fun, it makes me so happy that my children get to go to school here.
Both of my daughters attended this school and we were very happy with the Christian education they received. They combine providing high quality education with a family atmosphere. The teachers are excellent and are willing to work with students and their parents in providing the best education possible.
