- St John's Lutheran School encourages Christian fellowship as one of the most powerful factors in building character. We want children to enjoy the feeling of "being a child" as they grow and learn. We are proud of our students. As graduating 8th grade students leave St. John's, they regularly qualify for placement in Chicago's top academically-competitive high schools, such as Northside College Prep, Lane Tech, and Loyola Academy, to name a few.

GREAT teachers and high quality education. Christ is the center of St. John's education.

When I toured the school 5 years ago, I had no idea how St. John's would become more than just a school for my kids, but my extended family.
