St. Luke is wonderful school in the Shoreline area. Our two children are in 2nd and 3rd grade and absolutely love their teachers and the freinds they have made. We love the supportive community and the teachers are top notch. St. Luke School has become "home" and we are so grateful to be part of this amazing place.
