I''m a sophomore in high school as of now, but I used to go to Messiah. The grades offered are actually Pre-K through 8. Sometimes, I hated the place, but now that I go to a big, public high school, I realize how much I miss it. The teachers really do care about you; they want you to succeed, and they know who you are. I don't know the current principal, as Mrs. Arndt retired last year, but I''ve heard good things. The secretary, Anita, is one of my favorite people in the world and she has been since 1st grade. The band program is amazing. It's such a wonderful opportunity, every year they go to Seward, Nebraska to compete in the Gathering of the Talents. That trip was always my favorite thing. This school has played such a big part in my life and I really do love and miss it. Check it out!

With all the media coverage on Common Core, and the state of education (or lack thereof), I just wanted to share what an awesome school Messiah is. I have been sending children there for 16 years, and have 4 1/2 more to go. The teachers truly love and care about my babies, but aren't afraid to keep them in line. When they mess up, as all kids do, they can be corrected and prayed with, and shown the same forgiveness we all are through Christ. They look at each child as an individual and are willing to think outside the box to get them the education they need to be successful in high school. They understand that not everyone reaches the endpoint in the same manner and doing it differently isn't necessarily wrong. Quality education with caring staff. If you are looking for an option outside of public school I encourage you to call the school and arrange a tour!

I am an alumni of Messiah and attended school from preschool on up. I can't tell you how much I love this school. The teachers care about you, your work, and your well being. When I moved to public high school, I was far ahead of the curriculum thanks to the high standards for learning at Messiah. The student/teacher ratio is incredible, and provides the much needed individual attention from the teachers. Messiah Lutheran prepared me for my academic, work, and spiritual life.

I have had children at Messiah for 14 years. I currently have an 8th grader, 4th grader, 2nd grader and a preschool student. This is a school that the teachers really care. Anytime there is an issue, you get a phone call or letter. Cirriculum has helped my older 2 children take far advanced classes in public high school then their peers. This is a school that you get to know the parents and provides a community. The teachers go out of their way to provide individual attention when needed. I highly recommend to anyone.

Messiah has been a wonderful experience for our two children and for us as parents. They have always felt welcomed and loved. They especially like the Music/Band program and the fact that they have an all inclusive sports program. (no tryouts, everyone can play on their grade specific team) Our new principal Carl Butz loves working with children and works harder than anyone I know, making sure our children get the best Christian based education possible. A local high school teacher that told me about Messiah said "we love getting students from Messiah because they know how to study, they get their homework done and are usually 1-2 years ahead of public school kids."

I am a new parent of Messiah school, my boys have attended the daycare and preK education program and I know have a 1st grader and pre schooler. I have loved the family atmosphere of Messiah. I appreciate the relationship of the staff and parent and would not want my boys anywhere else. They truely believe that the students are the most important thing. Mr. and Mrs. Butz are fantastic role models and lead the school exceptionally well. Great job Messiah!

Great school the kids respect each other and grow together. I have kept my child in this school because of the experiences we had at other schools with bullies and manners. I will always recommend Messiah!
