Zion Lutheran School is AMAZING! We have been a Zion family for 7 years, and I could not have made a better choice for my 3 sons. Zion is a positive, student-centered learning environment where all students are inspired to do their best. Zion staff maintains high expectations for all students and provides a rigorous, standards driven academic program. Staff determines the individual needs of their students and supports them in addressing those needs to be successful individuals. Students are engaged in more than just core academic curriculum creating a fun and fulfilling well-rounded education.

Looking for a great school? Then look no further than Zion Lutheran school! Amazing caring teachers, challenging curriculum, small class size, wonderful community of families, faith based affordable tuition. Pay as you go extended care and no drop off lines! They even potty train. We joined the Zion family for early childcare and have now moved up to elementary school and are so blessed by our decision. Join us and be a part of this great community at Zion!

We could not have had a better school or teachers for our son who attended Zion the past two years (K and 1st). We moved out of the area and still considered keeping him at Zion because of the excellent staff but decided the drive in the morning would be too much. From the principal, Mrs. Kangas to the front office to the teachers (Mrs. Tordil and Mrs. Justice) they were the best. The small class sizes, challenging curriculum, parental involvement and great field trips were only some of the reasons Zion is a 5 Star school in my opinion. Even after moving our son's teachers still check in from time to time. If you are looking for a Christian-based top notch education for your child Zion is the place for you.

I am a former student from Zion back in the 60's. I had excellent teachers that taught me more about life and academics than the public school system ever could have done. When I got into the public school system I was far ahead of the other students in high school. Strong morals and fundamentals were given to me that I still live by today. I wish everyone had my opportunity. I think the U.S. would be a better place today if all our children could be embraced with these fundamentals. I am thankful for what I was given and all my teachers that tolerated my class. Sincerely, Bill Richardson

As the COVID-19 virus spreads throughout the United States, we look at steps schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
