Valley Lutheran has a full curriculum of core courses for all grades. The high school offers art, foreign language, vocal and instrumental music, and Advanced Placement courses along with opportunities for Christian service. Student growth and academic achievement are aided by the desirable student/teacher ratio, daily devotions, prayer, and a close working relationship between parents and the school. Each year new co-curricular opportunities are added so that students can be involved in activities that are led from a Christ-centered perspective. Families choose Valley Lutheran School as an alternative to public education, as we are able to educate a child not only academically but spiritually and emotionally because of the love of Jesus Christ.

Valley Lutheran is committed to offering excellent education and caring about students, both academically and spiritually. As a teacher, I find joy in my job every day. Our principal is fantastic and has the school growing and headed in the right direction. Come shadow for a day and see if it's right for your son or daughter!

I think it is an excellent school. The education is very high tech. I liked the values the school taught my daughters. I feel the staff is very caring and supportive.

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.
