As a parent of a preschooler I was the most impressed with: - Small student body (every teacher knows my child's name :-) ) -The compassionate and caring faculty - Computer class offered starting at pre-k - Wood working classes taught even to preschool (for Christmas they made a little tree don't worry no saws or power tools ;-) ) - positive reinforcement with homework ( she brings home a worksheet once a week that takes about 10-15 mins to complete and is praised for the work when she turns it in; as a result she can't wait to show me her worksheet and do it!!!) - progression of writing her name - she knows Jesus loves her and that God created everything Overall excellent school and so happy we found Saint Lukes Absolutely love the environment and the sense of community within the school!

Saint Luke is a place that you want to put your child. It is a place where the love of Christ is taught and lived out. It will not take you long to find out how much the teachers care for your children and go out of their way to meet their educational needs. My children were very well prepared for high school, with all four of them placing in honors and AP programs. I am so pleased they had the foundation they received at Saint Luke
