The elementary staff is committed to differentiating the learning environment and using technology to engage the learner. Our highly educated staff averages fifteen years of teaching experience and our standardized test scores improve each year until graduation when the majority of our students achieve test results in the ninetieth percentile.

Middle School

The Middle school is departmentalized with subject area experts in each discipline. The Middle School staff works as a team and provides many cross-subject activities both on and off-campus. Three out of the four teachers have masters degrees and all four are products of Lutheran Schools themselves. The local public and private high schools report that our students are well prepared academically, technologically competent, have developed excellent study habits, and are strong Christian leaders. By the time students graduate from eighth grade their standardized test scores are in at least the ninetieth percentile.
