The preschool program has successfully prepared my child to succeed in elementary school! The academic and play times are well balanced. The teachers and Director are professional, caring and have fun with the kids! Parents are really becoming involved in their kids classrooms and the preschool plans many family events!

The academic programs at Concordia Lutheran School are high quality. The teachers go out of their way to help the students learn and the principal is very polite and helpful. They offer different sport activities for the students and great programs for them to be involved in. Students also have the oppportunity to enroll at the daycare which is connected to the school. Concordia Lutheran Day Care provides before and after school care for all students. There they are involved in fun activities also. I highly recommend Concordia Lutheran School and Day Care to anyone who is interested in quality education with small class sizes!

This school provided exceptional learning experiences for both our male children, particularly in reading and math. Our kindergarten child is reading at nearly a 2nd grade level and our 2nd grader read as high as a 6th grade level. The AR (accelerated reading) program is expertly run and very beneficial. The classrooms are orderly. Students are respectful to one another and to their teachers. A very positive environment for young minds.

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.
