We love Immanuel! My daughter loves the school, teachers, and class mates! I never thought we would put her in a private school, but after she had a horrible experience at the public school we decided to try Immanuel. We first toured the school and got to meet with the teacher and other staff. We Love the fact that she learns good, wholesome values everyday and receives a great education! The teachers make sure that all the kids get the extra help or extra challenge that they each need! I love the variety of families that are a part of this school. They also offer many enrichment programs. My daughter started learning spanish in kindergarten.The principal is involved in almost every part of the school and makes a positive impact on the families there. Yes, we have to make some sacrifices to afford this, but the money we pay is worth every penny to have my kiddo in this amazing environment!!

As an Immanuel middle school parent, I've been really impressed with the school. My child has gained so much confidence at this school, and now really knows and accepts himself for who he is. The middle school students normal kids, but seem really well grounded, responsible, and friendly. I have no qualms about sending my child on to a public high school, as I truly believe he is very well prepared for it academically, socially, and emotionally. One thing that always makes me smile is the "chapel buddy" program. Each of the Preschool 4's, Kindergarteners, and 1st graders have a middle school "buddy" for the year. They read together, play together, and sit together at weekly chapel service. The relationships that develop are wonderful! No longer are the middle schoolers "scary big kids", but instead are buddies who share hugs and high-fives in the hallways! We're so pleased we made the decision to send our son to Immanuel's middle school!

I do not think this school is a good as the other reviews state. The diversity is not there. Most of the kids are one dimensional, and need protection from the public school environment. If you can afford this school, it's for you If you want you child to get a real education. Go public

My youngest is graduating from the 8th grade this year. My 2 kids have attended since they were each 3 years old. It will be hard to not enter the doors everyday anymore. The kids are so well prepared for HS, my oldest is taking mostly AP and pre- AP classes. The teachers do a fabulous job of challenging the kids and making them work hard. Because of the small school size, my kids have been able to play sports, be in band, plays, and many other activities that they may not have gotten into in the public school. They are well grounded in their faith and ready to tackle the challenges High school will bring

My daughter just started ILS this year, and we couldn't be more happy! At her old school she was having difficulties with bullying, she would come home upset everyday. Now at ILS, she is so much happier and finally getting her self confidence back! The teachers are great, and are getting her caught back up where she needs to be.

Couldn't be happier! We were a little bit unsure about whether it was okay to not be Lutheran, but soon found out that most students aren't. The small class sizes, on site daycare and fantastic academics are what we really love. The teachers truly care about each student and want them to succeed! We researched so many schools, and we love ILS!

We're really happy with Immanuel. My son is playing basketball and running track, and we have been really impressed by the program. It's cool that the basketball team made it to the National Tournament in Valparaiso, Indiana this year! The neat thing is that everyone plays, too. We don't have big teams, so everyone steps up and learns to play together. He hadn't played organized team sports begore, and the coaches and other players really encourage him. Some coaches are better than others, but overall we've been really happy! I like it that there are cheerleaders now,too, because we need a little more school spirit! GO CRUSADERS!

Before placing my children in school, I researched and visited nearly every charter, private, and Christian school in northern Colorado. Immanuel was by far the best school in the area. They have a top-notch academic record, experienced, caring teachers, a good sports program, and most importantly, their main focus is God and living in relationship with Him. We have been at Immanuel for several years now, and the growth I have seen in my children is just amazing. We could not be happier.

I never thought I would pay for private education in the elementary school years, but after a horrible experience enrolling my twins into public school ( not able to get the same schedule or full day kindergarten) we choose to look at christian schools. We intended to stay just for kindergarted, but betweent he teachers and day care experience we are still there 3 yrs later and one of my twins scored in the 98% for the standard testing - I think that says it all! I will keep my kids there as long as I can. teachers and staff are compassionate and the other families care about the schoool too!

I can't say enough wonderful things about our experience at Immanuel! Our daughter loves school so much she wishes she could attend all summer long. The school is not only academically strong but also teaches other equally important values. Students learn respect for others and to appreciate who God created them to be and they develop a wonderful sense of self-esteem as they discover the gifts God gave to them personally. It is so important to us that the same values we teach at home are taught at school and that this is consistent for our children. It is so evident that the teachers care deeply about the students and go above and beyond to meet the needs of each one. We are blessed to call Immanuel our school.

Wow, this is more than a school, this is a family. I have three kids (1st, 5th, 7th grade) and they have all attended Immanuel since preschool. The teachers are at Immanuel because they love to teach kids and it shows. My oldest daughter is excelling in math and is able to take 8th grade algebra in 7th grade, and the plan is for her to take high school geometry next year when she is in 8th grade at Immanuel. You MUST visit the school, it is amazing! Once you visit, you will want your kids to be there.

We joined Immanuel last year and could not be more satisfied. Our children are excelling, the teachers are fantastic and I find the parents to be involved and caring. With the new and technologically advanced building, our children are now being prepared to enter the world equipped with the tools not just to succeed, but to excel.

I wouldn't dream of sending my kids anywhere else! We originally chose Immanuel for their outstanding academics. The high school principals rave about Immanuel kids! We are not Lutheran, but the basic Christian values that are taught and exhibited daily are an incredible bonus! The teachers are firm but so loving, and the students are so respectful. From pre-school through middle school, my kids are involved in drama, sports, art classes and they LOVE it!

This is a great school! The most impressive thing is the students. They're polite, respectful, responsible and obviously care for each other and the school. We don't even need locks on our lockers. Academics are fantastic, the teachers are amazing, but what makes the real difference is the family atmosphere. Students and parents say hi to each other in the halls, hold doors, say thank you, and are really friendly to new families and students. We wouldn't send our kids any where else.

We have been at ILS for 3 years now and we love it. The staff is great with all the kids and the enviornment is peacefull, loving and serving! There is no better place for our kids to grow and learn in their faith and friendships. If you want your children to excel in EVERY area of their life, than I encourage you to come and check us out! You wont be dissappointed!!

My kids are doing great at Immanuel and I could not imagine having my middle school boys anywhere else. They are so respectful of others, they are kind, polite, and pleasant to be around. It is a night and day difference from other school situations. Listen to how they talk to one another and it becomes crystal clear why Immanuel is a great school.

We love this school! Academically we couldn't ask for anything more: ILS is in the top 3% of the nation. Socially, it's superb. When I'm on a field trip or at an athletic game with the kids, I'm proud to be with them, they behave so well. The extra-curriculars are impressive too, my kids personally are active year round with Lego Robotics, basketball, science and art classes. The best part is spiritually, having my children in an environment all day long where the Holy Spirit is present and Jesus is at the forefront of everything taught. I don't understand why anyone would go elsewhere.

We initially chose Immanuel because of it's Christ centered curriculum. However, not only do our children get to hear the the promise and hope of our Savior on a daily basis, but they have also received a top notch education They are being prepared for life on earth and are being given the hope of a future in Christ. The teachers excel both at loving the children and providing a challenging classroom atmosphere.

At a previous preschool the teachers asked that we find a different school for our son because he is an extremely active, busy little boy. Our son is now in first grade at Immanuel and he is excelling! The teachers sincerely love him and embrace him for what he is. They discipline him lovingly but with a firm hand and it has made a huge difference in his life. The atmosphere in the school is very warm, inviting, loving and caring. The principal is very forward looking and she is always planning ahead for the future. The majority of the other teachers already know who my son is and when they see him they greet him by name and they interact with him. All of the children in his class are friends with each other and they help each other to achieve success. There are no bullies in the entire school. What we find that is so great is the fact that they are setting up a science lab that will be used by all grades K-8 in their new building!

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.
