Our son is in preschool at St. John, and we plan to send both him and our younger daughter through their grade school years. As young professionals, we value the high-quality, accredited education in a small classroom provided by St. John, and, as Christians, we value the Christ-centered, safe and caring environment in which that excellent education is taught. St. John combines both in a community-centered setting with great teachers who truly care about their students and love to invest in their intellectual education and spiritual foundation.

This school is like a big family. It is a throwback in terms of the hands on approach to learning but also advanced in what they learn. We are so thankful to have our children at St. John's.

I have two children who attend St. John's in Libertyville. St. John's is a true hidden gem. The academics are advanced compared to the highly rated public schools nearby. The parents are very involved, the principal and teachers go above and beyond because they care for the students. The tuition is very affordable as well. We love this school.

Positioned in a prime location in the heart of Libertyville, St. John Lutheran School is surrounded by top-rated, highly sought after public schools, but still stands out. Relocating with five school-aged children put finding the right schools at the top of our priority list. Libertyville public schools stood out among those in other northern-Chicago suburbs, but dull in comparison to what St. John has to offer. While surpassing the academic standards of public schools, St. John Lutheran School also offers low student-teacher ratio, individualized instruction which allows children to work at their own pace and unique level, and highly-educated, well-seasoned, kind and compassionate teachers. Despite the safeguards put in place to protect the safety and wellbeing of their students and staff, St. John offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere to all who enter. The principal and staff meet and greet students and parents both before and after class allowing constant, open communication. The students not only learn about various cultures and ethnicities through text book exploration, but through visiting with the child sitting to their right or left. They are given the opportunity to respect and appreciate their differences while discovering what makes them very much the same. The strong biblical foundation and Christ-like values instilled by the Pastor, Principal, teachers, and staff at St. John makes us all part of one family.
