Gethsemane Lutheran School

  • Gethsemane Lutheran School takes your child’s education personally. We are a small East Valley Christian school with a BIG focus on academic excellence, a commitment to serve the community and a center around God.Gethsemane puts the “it takes a village to raise a child” model into practice.
  • From early on, children and their families get to know all of the staff at the school offering a true community feeling.
  • Small class sizes give teachers and other faculty members the opportunity to understand and meet your child’s individual needs.Learning at Gethsemane doesn’t just happen in the classroom or in a text book.
  • Our teachers use outside the book activities, acts of service, exercises and technology to engage growing young minds.Throughout their educational experience at GLS those young minds and souls are nourished with the word of the Lord.
  • Children attend Chapel weekly and all grade levels participate in Christian Studies.
