Hope Lutheran School made a difference in my life! It is so wonderful to be able to pray during class and learn about the love of Jesus as well as academics. I had a firm foundation at Hope and later went on to high school and college. There are caring teachers and small class sizes. Thank you Hope Lutheran School for staying a strong presence in Idaho Falls.
