You may see from my Alias that I looked for the worst in things. I can't find anything when I review the education and overall scope of Immanuel. They are Christ Centered and Child Focused. You become part of the family that they call Lancer Nation. You are not forced to be Lutheran, they just want you to know that Jesus love you. The children are respectful and hardworking. They have a smile every day. The high schools WANT Immanuel students.
