Our son was placed in a box in the Public School. Once identified as a Special Ed child, he became despondent and lost all self-esteem. We are so thankful for God guiding us to Calvary Lutheran School. They opened the box and helped build his self-esteem. He is becoming a young man. God is good!

Calvary Lutheran School has made an amazing impact in San Lorenzo for the last 60 years and continues to do so daily! Calvary has an extremely dedicated staff who go above and beyond for each individual child. We are not just a school, but a very close knit community, and truly a family. Open communication between the teacher and parent definitely happens at Calvary, to better help each child and their individual needs. Each child is cared for, loved, and encourage to grow in all academic and non academic areas. Our parents and students love our school and would tell you with out a doubt that Calvary has impacted their child's life for the better!

I am so glad we decided to have our daughter attend Calvary Luthern School. She has been there since preschool. She is currently in the 3rd grade and she loves it! Calvary is an exceptional school with an extremely dedicated administration, staff and church members. This is what we like most about it. The staff is very caring! Class size numbers are small enough to give special attention to each child. The Teachers work extremely hard to assure each child s success. The school also offers a variety of extra curiculum events such a music bells class , student government, and a dedicated physical education department, and after school sports program. They also offer a wonderful extended care program that is so beneficial to us working Parents . I am proud to say we are a member of Calvary!

My son and daughter have both been fortunate to attend Calvary . This is a school where there is no political agenda but rather a deep concern that each individual gains an understanding that we have importance not because of what we have done but because of what Jesus did for us. In God we trust!

My husband and his three siblings all graduated from Calvaary Lutheran, and our two sons have recently graduated as well. My youngest will graduate this year.Calvary Lutheran has an outstanding staff, dedicated to the loving up-bringing and education of their students. The staff works hard to have enriching activities, field trips and challenging curriculum to keep learning fun! We will be very sad when my youngest child graduates this year. All three of my children have grown in their faith and excelled academically during their time at Calvary. This school is truly a blessing!

This is a very good school, considering that the tuition is so low. My second-grader has been here since preschool, my 5th grader started here in 3rd grade. They provide a strong, 'back-to-basics' education, plus enrichment with numerous fieldtrips and assemblies throughout the year. The principal and staff are very dedicated. There is one music teacher, who is also a music teacher, plus their is a choir for grades 3 & up and songchimes for grades 4 and up. My only complaint is that I wish that there were a stronger art instruction program, and a broader music instruction program.

Calvary is the best private school in the east bay. It is very affordable compared to other private schools. The quality of education is supurb and the staff is commited and caring. The principal holds this school closely in her heart and is 110% invested in Calvary. I would not have my child in any other elementary school. Calvary is an undiscovered jewel in the East Bay. It is a treasure to all who entrust their young scholars education to C.L.S.

My child attended Calvary Lutheran School for 2 years. It is a good school for the resources they have. They do have some sports programs for older kids, I believe 5-8 grades which include basketball and volleyball, I believe. I think they started a drama program for the older grades, but I think its where the students perform in a play once or year or something. There are no music programs or no hot lunch program, which really was the downside to this school. The level of parent involvement is great. Since it is a small, sheltered school environment, many of the parents get involved with many of the school activities. They have a Christmas for grades Pre-4th grade, a yearly school field trip to a park, weekly chapels, a couple of fundraisers, classroom fieldtrips, annual auction fundraiser, annual talent show; that's what I remember.

I have two children attending this school. My son is in 4th and my daughter is in 1st. They have both enjoyed going to Calvary since they were in Preschool. I am very pleased with the school because of the personal attention and care the teachers show for each child. The level of homework and assignments that each child has had in their classes has been satisfactory of my expectations. When I meet the parents of new children, they always comment on the scholastic reputation that Calvary School has. As an example of how the teachers are caring, my daughter was diagnosed with a hearing impediment, so she had to wear hearing aids. Her kindergarten teacher at the time, volunteered to stay after school and teach her one-on-one to make sure that she learned her lessons. Thank you Calvary School for being there for me and my children.
