School Reviews

Gethsemane Lutheran School has been the perfect setting for my children's education. Not only are they pushed academically and ahead of their peers in the public school system, but the atmosphere of a small school and the attention each child receives from their teacher is a blessing. My kids have all excelled at GLS and look forward to going to school each day.We love that music and art are incorporated into each grade level. The opportunity for my kids to be in tone chimes and junior choir is great and adds an extra bit of responsibility in their lives. The athletic programs are perfect for my kids, as they have options throughout the school year. The facilities are great and allow me as a parent to know that my kids are being cared for when I'm not around. The classrooms are well designed and have everything to provide a great educational experience for my children. The fact that it is connected with the church and knowing that my kids are learning more about Jesus in their lives each day is the main reason we chose GLS. My kids are growing into young adults and being trained to properly handle all situations in life with Jesus by their side. The Pastors and teachers are all working together to make sure each of my kids are ready for the next level of education and beyond.
