As a parent of a kindergartner, it feels great to know my child is receiving an excellent education built but on enduring methods of teaching and learning. The teachers are experienced and many if not all, have taught at the school for years. The staff knows how to reach and educate each child. My daughter loves school, she loves learning, she loves her school mates and her teachers. She is excited about what the next school day will bring. The classes are small and the before school and after school programming is robust. The school produces and maintains joyful children, who are supportive of each other. I look forward to sending my son to this school to begin his academic career. This is a school that enhances the childhood experience and develops well-educated children.
We are so happy we found Zion for our children. Our son graduated from Zion in June and just started his first year of high school at St Mary's. He is more than prepared to for his Honors English and Honors Geometry classes (content and homework load). Within the first week of high school, our son wrote a thank you note to Mr. Heinitz! Our daughter is in the 3rd grade at Zion. We are very pleased with the reading and math programs (K-8). Our daughter is a competent and analytical reader, which allows her to excel in all subjects in school. One more note on Zion -- the school does not have cliques (parents or children). The classes are small and all of the children play with one another. The kids (K-8) at Zion are thoughtful, well-rounded, loving and respectful. Zion is a true gem!
This is our second year at Zion after moving from an OUSD highly rated school. The staff made the transition as smooth as possible. Higher expectations in performance were an adjustment for our child. But for the better, since we now are secure in the fact our child is ready for a higher level of academics in high school. A great place where intellect and personal responsibility are encouraged.
Our family found Zion Lutheran School to be an educational community that lives out its values. The school is committed to academic excellence for each student. Through the small class size, challenging academic program, and the commitment of its faculty and staff, we had no doubt that our son was being prepared to enter the even more challenging world of high school. Our son chose to attend St. Mary's College High School and is not only well prepared for the college-preparatory program but has attained the life skills necessary to succeed. He's off to a great start and is already taking advantage of his leadership and athletic skills developed at Zion Lutheran School. We could not have selected a better primary education, K - 8 than Zion Lutheran School. Zion Lutheran School Parents Graduating Class 2011
I have two children at Zion Lutheran School and I m very happy with their educational opportunities. The current teachers are caring, loving individuals who strive for their students to learn and grow intellectually and socially. The school class sizes couldn t be smaller (around ten kids per grade) which allows for direct, individualized support for each child. I wouldn t hesitate to recommend this school and hope to see it s continued mission in K-8 education.
My daughter is in the 1st grade at Zion. I started looking for schools for her when she was just 3 yrs old. I wanted the best and wouldnt settle for less! After carefull consideration in choosing a school for my daughter the choice was clear from the moment I walked on campus. It wasnt about the money, its about the child! Why pay more when you can get the same education experience at Zion? Zion has exceeded my expectations from the start. Zion not only has encouraged my daughter to thrive academically, but spiritually as well. I would recommend this school to anyone! I am confident I made the right choice for my daughter, and I am sure she will thank me for it later in life. My daughter is in great hands at Zion Lutheran School, and your child will be too!
My daughter attends Zion, and we can not be more pleased with the school. All of the teachers really care about the students, the academics are well above standard as is expected with a private school, and the school upholds a strong moral guidance for the kids, which I love. The class sizes range from very small to mid-size, which is also a plus because the teacher is able to attend to each different child's needs without an issue. My 2nd daughter will definitely be attending Zion. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for the same.
I am the music teacher at Zion and my 3 kids attend also. Zion has high academic standards, small class size, and a 'family' atmosphere. There is a full time PE teacher and a gym. Music is taught twice a week and the students REALLY learn to play recorders and handbells as well as sing. Students also take Spanish and computer lab. We've been very happy the education our children are getting.
My daughter has attended Zion for two years and we are pleased with the school. She scored well above second grade (her grade) on the aptitude test she recently took. The schhol has wonderful activities, including plays and talent shows. In addition, the school is very multi-cultural. One drawback is that the school is very small.
