Immanuel Evangelical School

  • The Immanuel Lutheran School was started in the church basement with 27 students and one teacher in Waukegan on Chapel Street in 1965.
  • April 1, 1974 the new school was completed in Waukegan on Frolic Avenue.
  • Today, the school teaches approximately 90 children from Pre-K through 8th grades.
  • The faculty consists of a fulltime principal/teacher, three additional full-time teachers, two part-time teachers, each serving in Kindergarten and Preschool, and one part-time tutor/librarian.
  • All of our teachers are graduated from accredited colleges and have a Bachelor's or higher degree.
  • Immanuel Lutheran School is Christ-based and each day starts with teachings of the bible.
  • On Wednesdays, our pastor leads the studies in Chapel instead of the classroom.
  • In addition, the average school day consists of reading, writing, English, arithmetic, history, science, Spanish as a second language, gym, and art.
  • The Immanuel Lutheran School Society is a parent-teacher organization, that meets two or three times during the school year.
