- The promise of eternal life through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ gives the faculty and staff at Valley Lutheran School a hope to share with our students. Teaching each subject from a Biblical worldview trains our students to filter every subject through the lens of Scripture. Academics are extremely important at Valley; but just as important is for each of our students to have a strong faith that will lead and guide them. These academic skills and Christian character will allow our young people to be successful during their time here at Valley Lutheran School and far beyond.

My son started kindergarten here and is now going in first grade. Everyone from 12 grade, down, know each other. All the kids help each other and are like family. The teachers enforce respect and manners. Academically, my son has reached levels I never thought he could yet at this age. You need to send your kids here!

This school is fantastic. The faculty and staff always put the best interest of the student first. They start with and end with the Gospel of Jesus Christ that all are sinners needing forgiveness of their sins. Building on the Biblical standard of God's free Grace they impart knowledge through excellent teaching and example. My three children attended Valley and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Good job and kudos to all the teachers and staff at Valley. Christ's Spirit shines.

This school continues to grow both in student body and in quality of education. 2012 offered many firsts. This year the school added K-5 to its facility. It also began offering Calculus and AP World History and AP English to its already excellent academic choices.

Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
Solid parent-teacher relationships have always been an important part of K-12 education. During this interminable pandemic, parent-teacher relationships have become even more important.
