I can't say enought about this school! The best thing we ever did was switch to the elementary program here! The curriculum is miles above that in the public schools, and it's done in a loving environment. The teachers love what they do, and truly care about the children's success. Go visit them, and you will know instantly; this is a place your child will thrive!!!

Gethsemane is a school that cares about students and provides a loving environment for them to grow. I was draw to Gethsemane because of the Christian Montessori education they offered in the preschool program. We were very satisfied with how our daughter responded to her time at Gethsemane and will be bringing her back in the Fall.

Our child has been attending this school since Kindergarten and my husband and I could not be more pleased with her time at GLS. She is growing so quickly in her social skills, her intellect and her spirit. The teachers are knowledgable and caring as are the staff and parent volunteers. It is a sweet community to be a part of as one can easily know the other students and parents and build relationships with them. As a child spends 7 hours or more in school I do not think you could get much better than the spirit of care that is present in all the classrooms at GLS. There is safety, discipline, knowledge and friendship here. Our youngest child does not even attend yet and already knows the teachers and students and they know her and call her by name! After 3 years of paying for private school we found it difficult to afford GLS. We applied for tuition assistance and were pleased to be gifted an amount that has made it possible to allow our 8 year old to attend 3rd grade here. We are excited to begin our 4th year at this small jewel of a school. Please visit and see for yourself!

I love teaching at Gethsemane. We get to choose our curriculum and review it periodically. Our students consider us their family and often come back to visit as alumni. This is not a job or career. It is a love for children and their relationship with God. It is a love for them to excel academically.

Gethsemane offers low student to teacher ratio, and a parent friendly environment. Our students are inspired and motivated to think critically and to become life long learners. Gethsemane's holistic approach, God centered, provides each student with a rich learning experience.

Gethsemane provides children from preschool up to 6th grade with an excellent education. The preschool is Montessori, which provides children with tools they need in life. My daughter entered GLS in pre school and was reading before entering kindergarten. In addition to a great education, the principal and teachers are the best! GLS teachers love the children and it shows! Mrs. Glover, Principal, has truly blessed our school! We could not ask for a better principal. Our two children love going to school. Parents are welcome and encouraged to be involved (whenever possible) in the classroom and on field trips. We are a Christian school and those values are woven into our classrooms. One final note: bullying is unacceptable at GLS and is simply not tolerated! Enroll your children now for a great education and the opportunity to make lifetime friends!

Both of my boys, aged 9 and 11, have been at Gethsemane since they were three. We are receiving an excellent education from teachers that are totally involved with academics as well as emotional and spiritual growth! I love that there is chapel every Wednesday where the children are given a chapel family to sit with the entire year. This is wonderful as students of all ages get along and it feels like a family through out the entire school. My boys and I are happy to be part of this "family", I mean school. ; )

I work in a great caring environment, and get to share Jesus in all my subjects. Overall our students do very well in their testing and continue to do well in their higher education. It is a very close famiily school that welcomes more to our school. I am very proud to work with all the families at Gethsemane.

This school and its teachers/volunteers are of the highest standards. The curriculum is above Adams 12 elementary schools and the kids are treated with respect. They learn by watching and they have the best role models. My son has fun, learns self respect, and the highest standards of learning. They are held responsible for their grades and are not given A's or B's, they have to learn them. Putting our child there was the best thing for him and us.

I chose Gethsemane mainly for the low student to teacher ratio and the fact that the teachers and staff care so much. There is also a great deal of emphasis on academics and independent thinking. My son started learning to read and basic math skills in Preschool and continues to use these skills as he progresses. This is a great school if you want to raise a smart, independent thinker!

My children have had much success at this school. Our family has children ranging from 6-18, and we have been part of their community for over 10 years. The teachers are outstanding, and really care to the individual child. My daughter scored in the 96th percentile in Kindergarten in the Iowa Basics exams in reading and comprehension. I believe this is from the foundation she received from attending Gethsemane from preschool. She is now in 1st grade and we look forward to watching her grow at Gethsemane!

Gethsemane is great! I have two children at this school and the teachers they have are amazing. Their teachers are experienced and knowledgeable, but most noticeable is how caring and responsive they are to all the children and families. Gethsemane has a new principal this year, too, and the positive change that has been is noticeable throughout the school--there is more involvement in activities from parents and teachers. Go Gladiators!

We loved this school for many years. As with many things is life, the school has been through some changes. Unfortunately, it is no longer the school for us.

I am a parent of two children that have attended Gethsemane Lutheran School for Pre-school and Kindergarten. My pre-schooler is currently learning letter sounds and can even spell simple words. She also has excellent math skills. She can already count to 100! I also have a 1st grader that attended Gethsemane for Pre-school and Kindergarten. She is currently enrolled in public school and is an entire grade level ahead of most of our friends children that attend public school. She and our entire family have found many friends at Gethsemane and we treasure them as if they were family. I can not express the gratitude I feel toward Gethsemane Lutheran School for teaching my children in a wonderful and caring environment.

I have two kids who have attended Gethsemane Lutheran School. I cannot speak highly enough about this school. My kids have scored above the 90th percentile nationally on their standardized tests, they are in a Christ centered environment where their teachers and friends share our same values, and I love the family atmosphere. My kids are at least an entire grade level ahead of their friends in public school. It may not be a 'big' school, but they teach the things that are important. I would not hesitate recommending this school.

My children had attended Gethsemane for many years, and have made the switch to public school. The move was made for many reasons including lack of discipline and lack of extra curriculars. Much to our surprise, our very bright children are academically behind the other in their grade. They have been playing catch-up to their peers all year.

My children have attended Gethsemane since preschool and have enjoyed an EXCELLENT Education from highly skilled, caring teachers. They are more advanced in their studies than their friends who attend public schools.
