What Our Families Have to Say

We love Immanuel Lutheran School! I love the fact that my children can learn academically and still keep God at the center of it it should be. The feeling at Immanuel is that of a second family. Families are involved in many events and activities at Immanuel which allows parent/family participation and reinforces the relationship between parents and their children, which can be very important as the kids reach the middle-school years. It also keeps us connected to what's going on at school, keeping us in the loop. We really enjoy the environment at Immanuel and my kids are learning a lot!


I am so glad my parents chose Immanuel as my school. I couldn't imagine my life if I hadn't gone there. I made so many great friends, and we are all practically family. We also get a great Christian education, and they teach us the values we will need to achieve things in life. Immanuel has amazing teachers who know each of their students' strong points and weak points. It is an amazing school, and I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a school for your child.
