We love Mt Zion. My son is 4 and he has been at this school for just over 2 years. The classes are small so there is a lot of one on one attention. The teachers are awesome, loving, experienced...I can go on and on! I would highly recommend this school to anyone. We are not Lutheran or religious yet we feel like family here. This is a very diverse school with kids from all over the world as well, which is great in Boulder!

My two children, ages 3 and 5, have been attending Mt. Zion for the past two years. The preschool and the elementary school are excellent. The classes are small, the teachers are fantastic. Before Mt. Zion my kids didn't want to go to school. Now they swing open the front door and run down the hall to greet their teachers. I highly recommend this school. The diversity is excellent. My daughter's best friends are from India, Korea and China.

Not every school will fit everyone. This school works for my family. We love the fact that our children get one-on-one attention from teachers that love what they do. These teachers care about the needs of each child as an individual and it shows in my children. I appreciate you Mount Zion Lutheran School. I'm so glad your part of the family.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
