SSLS is a wonderful school. The Principal and Faculty are amazing. Our boys love school and enjoy every day. The teachers are creative in their approaches, and they work hard. I highly recommend this school. It is well worth the investment!

Fantastic technology: Promethian Boards in every classroom 1st-8th grade, Ipad Middle School, Active Inspire and Activote tools to facilitate teaching, 20 computer lab, as well as Accelerated Reader and Star Math programs support rigorous instructional curriculum. Bright students with small class sizes make St. Stephens Lutheran a wonderful place to teach and to learn!
