This is a wonderful school!! The teachers and staff are so supportive. It's a small school where each child gets a lot of personal attention. The teacher's push the children to excel in every subject. Most importantly my child is incredibly safe. It's not just a school it's a family and everyone looks after each other and supports one another. The band is excellent.

As a former public school teacher, for 6 years, to say I took the school search for my child seriously, is an understatement. We live in an excellent public school district, in the South Bay. Yet, we make the 45 miniute commute to Venice Luteran School (VLS), by choice. Venice Lutheran School is a wonderful environment for my child. The stable and knowledgable teaching base, individualized attention, small class room environment (Kinder is capped at 15 kids, with at least two teachers), adherence to instilling the values of kindness, service, and community, vibrant administrator, and the commitment to keeping learning fun is part of what makes the commute worth it for our family. There is no standardized testing involved in the curriculum until the second grade. This has been a saving grace as a parent, of a child with anxiety. She gets to spend her time playing, learning, and learning through play as is age appropriate for a 5 year old. The most refreshing thing about VLS, is that all kids get to be themselves, and develop the love of learning, in a supportive environment. Each morning. my kid loves going to school. That lets me know that we found the right fit!

Venice Lutheran has been our school home, since my children were in Kindergarten. They are currently in 6th & 7th grade, respectively. Both of my children have thrived at VLS! The teachers are superb! All school staff members truly care about the students on campus. Due to the small class size, faculty members are able to give the kids individualized attention and assistance as needed. True, the school is Lutheran in nature. Yet, the program, and all involved, practice and teach a genuine love and respect for all around. Although we aren't a religious family, we have been warmly welcomed by the VLS community. My children have been nurtured and loved by everyone here. They have never been pressured in any way, or made to feel uncomfortable, during school events, due to our nonreligious stance. In fact, the majority of students on campus are not religious. This tight knit VLS community has been a great fit for my family! I absolutely recommend this school for anyone who is looking for a campus that balances high academic, developmentally appropriate, standards for the learning environment within a loving, caring, child centered community.

Subpar teachers and curriculum. An evangelical based school. The kids are taught that those who are not believers will burn in hell. Nice thing to teach 5 year olds. No thank you.

Venice Lutheran School has been our community for the past several years. We are transplants to L.A. and have no family here. When I drop my daughter off at school, I know she is cared for and thriving. Her standardized test scores have been great and she loves every minute of being at school. I was also very surprised at how affordable a private school in Venice, CA could be. The staff is incredible. Your child receives so much personal attention and they develop the whole person there - academics and character building. Down to how to make proper eye contact and a good hand shake :) I can't say enough good things.
