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.
- The purpose of this group is to promote better communication, aid in parental and educational knowledge, encourage fellowship and support school functions.
