Faith Lutheran School is closing after the 2011-12 school year. After prayerful consideration, Faith decided once again to close the elementary school. The pre-school will remain open.

My children attend Faith Lutheran Preschool full time. They are happy and well adjusted. The preschool teachers are very good and care about the children. My son is more than prepared for kindergarten and is beginning to read as well as write his first and last name. My daughter can be very strong willed and the teachers are patient and make her feel safe and secure. The preschool offers many different schedules for families from 2 days a week preschool to 5 days a week with after school care. My children enjoy school and attending chapel on Wednesdays. You do not need to be a member of the church to attend the school. I am very happy with the experience we have at Faith Lutheran.

My son is a student at Faith Lutheran, and he loves going to school. Since the class sizes are small, the teachers can focus on helping each student excel at each level. I can't say enough positive things about the teaching staff a the school, they truly care about each students success. I am very plaesed with the values that are being taught at this school. Each student is expected to treat other as they would like to be treated. They also have a "Caught being Kind" recognition that rewards students who were observed doing something nice for another student without being asked.

Faith Lutheran is an outstanding school. Beyond the locally unmatched focus on values, personal responsibility, and religion -- Faith educates kids to higher standard. Children are very engaged in school activities, and due to the very small class size, are encouraged to excel to their personal limits. Homework is significant but good, and parental involvement is expected/encouraged.

Faith Lutheran is a great place to send your kids. The teacher to student ratio is low and the core knowledge curriculum leads to greater student comprehension on a variety of subjects. The only problem the school has is acquiring adequate funds; currently the church is paying for the difference between profits and losses. I would also like to point out that the information on this web page is incorrect; Faith Lutheran School currently goes up to the 4th grade and they will be adding a grade level every year until they reach 8th. Attending this school has been a very positive experience for both my children!

Our youngest son attended Faith Lutheran from sixth grade through eighth. The principal and teachers were all excellent. There was a lot of homework but it wasn't long before our son was use to it. That also gave him a great advantage so when he went to high school it didn't seem overwhelming. Small class size - never more than 8 students so there was more one on one time with the teachers and our son learned more. Christian based education, weekly worship, prayers in the classroom, students totally immersed in church activities. It was wonderful. Really made me wish I had just started him out from Kindergarten. Can't say enough good things about Faith.

I have sent five children through Faith and although the leadership (principal) isn't great right now the core values and high learning standards have always been excellent.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
