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!

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
