I teach PK-4 at ILS and have a son in 7th grade. I LOVE my school. The preschool helps students develop a love for learning with an active, energetic classroom. The middle school challenges students in every subject. Saxon Math is taught according to the student's level so that advanced students can finish algebra in 8th grade. Spanish is offered for grades K through 8. The school is constantly working on improving technology and instruction. Most importantly, we take care of kids and families and help them become more connected to Christ.

We love this school. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The facilities have recently been remodeled and it looks great. The academics are top notch. Music, Art, and Sports are all there along with lots of extracurricular activities. My daughter loves to go and has had perfect attendance so far this year.

My daughter is definitely getting an excellent mix of academic challenges, Christian and biblical based education along with a student body whose families have the utmost in standards of morals and values. My husband graduated from the school in the eighties, and it has a long history of producing top students.

Our son is in Kindergarten at Immanuel Lutheran School. He is receiving a top-notched education where he is challenged every day. He is learning Spanish, reading, math, and computer science! The teachers and staff are terrific, you can really see their love for the children.
