These teachers pour into my children a love for learning and others. It educates the whole child (heart, mind, body, and soul). I am so grateful for the dedication of these teachers and the sound education my kids are receiving. My kids are flourishing and understand who they are and how much they are loved. In a world that makes you question everything, it is nice to know they've been given a firm foundation.

My daughter attended Immanuel from pre-school through 8th grade. This experience was a wonderful foundation for leading a God filled life and being well prepared for public high school (Fremd). The faculty and administration of Immanuel are caring and prepared my daughter well!

We have been really happy sending our sons to Immanuel Lutheran School. My sons have been going to Immanuel since pre-school and they love Immanuel. My kids tell me that they can't wait to go to school. The teachers at Immanuel are loving, caring, enouraging, and attentive. The teachers view teaching as their life calling. You just can't find more loving and caring teachers than Immanuel teachers. Immanuel allows students to learn at different speeds. If my kids are more advanced in math, then my kids are able to learn advanced math from online courses. The in classroom use of technology is excellent. The kids use a variety of online applications as part of their learning experience. Not only Immanuel is excellent at academic teaching, but they also care about the students spiritually. The school teaches students about God and building a relationship with God. The public schools are not allowed to teach moral, biblical values. I am glad my kids get to go to a school where biblical values are taught and exhibited by teachers. Immanuel is truly a wonderful school for all kids!

We have no regrets sending our 3 girls to Immanuel from preschool through 8th grade. The educational and spiritual foundation they received heading into high school completely prepared them for a successful transition.

We sent all 4 of our kids to Immanuel, K thru 8th grade. Sending them there was one of the best decisions we made. The Christian foundation they received at Immanuel carried with them thru their high school and college years and beyond. Hanging out with peers during those middle school years that were like minded with regard to having the same Christian morals and values gave them courage to stay true to those values and to seek out peers with similar values as they went thru high school and college. The education was great, but the Christian foundation they received and that was freely taught at Immanuel was invaluable to us as parents and the them now that they have the benefit of hind sight. We love Immanuel Palatine and will forever be Bobcats!!

Immanuel was such a breath of fresh air for us. Being new to the area, we failed to make connections in the public school. There was just no opportunity to know parents or teachers. The Immanuel community was so welcoming and immediately made our children and us feel at home. Our kids have thrived under the care of these incredible teachers, staff, and coaches and the community of parents. They are growing in knowledge AND wisdom here at Immanuel. They are given opportunities in sports, arts, and academics that exceeded my expectations, and from such a young age.

Although Palatine has great public schools educationally, we felt something was lacking in local junior highs that would help give my children a stronger moral compass in an increasingly complex world. Immanuel was the answer to my prayers - strong educationally and morally. One hour of Sunday School wasn't enough. And Immanuel has sports, fine arts, jr high electives, a science fair, history fair, math competition, etc so everything you want in a school plus much needed daily lessons in compassion. Best school decision we ever made! You want to send your kids here!
