Lutheran High School is an excellent choice for your child's education. We chose LuHi for many reasons but most importantly, we wanted a safe and caring Christian atmosphere for our daughter to attend. Academics are top notch and we know our daughter is getting the best education we can support and provide. Class sizes are smaller and the benefit is that she gets more 1-on-1 time with her teachers and they know us by name. Lutheran High is like an extension of our family. Teachers, staff and even other student's families are very approachable and welcoming. We are very pleased with the quality Christian based education and family-like environment that our daughter receives at Lutheran High School. We highly recommend it and encourage you to learn more about LuHi.

Lutheran High School has been the best choice I have made for my daughter. She has been there all 4 years and its been great. I teachers and staff go above and behind to help a child with there needs if its reading, math or just problems in general. I daughter had a IEP and was behind on things and know that she is graduating this May she is right up to standers and is know looking at colleges. I can't thank Lutheran high staff enough for the best 4 years of my daughters school years

Luhi is the best. It's a college education at the high school level. Students from Luhi are better equipped and mentally prepared for college. With Christian values at the core, it's a safe, fun learning environment. I graduated there and my kids will graduate there. Tradition and respect are daily lessons for every young adult. Sports, activities, community projects and many chances to just fit in, are things students and parents will find at Luhi. Again, Luhi is the best. Alumni, Class of 89

We love LuHi! Students are comfortably challenged academically and are able to participate in many activities, all in an environment that keeps Christ as the focus. The small school atmosphere allows for close relationships with teachers, coaches and advisors. We are so glad our kids will grow in their education and their faith while attending Lutheran High.

Lutheran High is an amazing school! The superb education offered has allowed my children to be ahead in the requirements for their grade level. However & more importantly, the staff leads all students to have the moral compass required in this life. As a parent, I have taken great comfort in knowing that the beliefs & support I want for my children will always be instilled by all who guide the students. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for the existence of this amazing school and wonderful staff. Thank you Lu-Hi!

Lutheran High School in Springfield, IL excels in overall student development (character, academics & spiritual growth.) LuHi's student body is its biggest and best asset. From seniors to freshmen, students interact with and look out for one another. Lutheran's seasoned teaching and administrative staff band together to serve as positive role models and provide an excellent college prep curriculum.. Parental involvement is very strong. All in all, LuHi is THE BEST high school choice in central Illinois!

Lutheran High School is one of the best places to work. Not only am I privileged to work with great people but the kids that I get to help every day are amazing! They love life and love God. Everyone always says LuHi is like a family and I truly believe that! Go Saders!

I don't know where we would be without the caring engaged faculty and staff at Lutheran High. Daily they provide education, guidance, respect, and positive role models for my children. They have high expectations of the children both personally and acedemically and the children love exceeding their expectations. In addition to a strong faith based education for my children, they provide a place for parental involvement at what ever level you are comfortable with. Don't know of any better place to be than here

My oldest son Graduated in 2010 and we loved the school! He had a great experience there and his teachers were always willing to work with him when needed. He was not an academic over -achiever and struggled in some areas, but his teachers always supported him in his areas of weakness.

My older son went to Springfield High but my younger son goes to Lutheran. Both are good schools however Lutheran is better for the quiet kid who would get lost and overlooked at a larger school. Also, I found that the teachers are wonderful and are willing to help and do what it takes so every kid learns. The kids are polite.

As an alumuni and a parent of a current student, I would highly recommend this school for a christ centered education with caring faculty

I am currently a student at Lu-Hi, and I absolutely love it. The faculty and staff are very personable, and willing to help any student that is struggling. My peers are wonderful. The one thing that sticks out at this school compared to other schools I have attended is that it is not 'clique-y' like many high schools are. People are widely accepted for who they are.

Our daughter attended LHS for four years. The caring atmosphere is one of the things that really comes to mind first. The quality of courses offered prepared her well for college, especially the writing and reports that were part of many courses. There is an undercurrent of self disipline and planning that is taught by example also. Students have a wide variety of extraciricular activities to choose from and are encouraged by staff and other students to join in. I was constantly amazed that my daughter and her friends had time to do any school work with all the things they were involved in. The best tesimonial I guess is that my second daughter is now attending, and is blooming in the LHS environment.

Lutheran High School helped me to keep the homework done and helped my son be more responsible! (without the home arguements)
