St. John's Evangelical Lutheran School

St. Johns provides a Christian education for children from the age of three through the 8th grade.
Our school has been in continuous operation since 1913, offering children the opportunity to grow in Christian knowledge and in the practical art of Christian living. With our small class size, our teachers are able to give more individualized instruction to the students, especially those who are experiencing difficulty as well as those who are more advanced. Our students demonstrate this advantage, regularly scoring better than one full grade above public school students on standardized tests.
