First Lutheran School

First Lutheran School exists as an important part of First Lutheran Church to assist and support parents with the Christian education and training of their children.
Through this Christian congregation, the Lord has divinely called our schools teachers to assist parents with the Christian training of their children.
We teach the Scriptural truth that all people are born sinful and therefore deserve eternal damnation.
Our Christian education then brings to the children the joyful message that God sent His Son Jesus to suffer and die for their sins.
By Jesus death and resurrection all people have been redeemed from sin.
Through faith in Christ, all can receive full and free salvation.
Not only are these Bible truths taught in devotions and religion classes, but they are brought out in all subject areas of the curriculum.

School Reviews

5  
First is such a wonderful school! My three kids have been excelling in academics because of the dedicated teachers, small class sizes, and the personal attention each receives. They love playing on sports teams and participating in the clubs like robotics, cooking, and forensics. We are super happy with the good friends they've made and the good role models they have in the staff. I can't express enough how great the experience has been and would encourage any family to consider First Lutheran for their Child's education.
