I went to Immanuel and now my 3 children go. I would not want to send them anywhere else! The faculty is wonderful and my children love it!

My 4 year old goes there and loves it!!! She really likes Mrs. Limback and Mrs. Meyerhoff.

I think that everyone at the school is great. They care about each and everyone at the school. Small class sizes and there is a lot of diversity amongst the different classes I would say. Being a single parent of two boys, I would have to say that it's a great place for anyone to send there children to a great Christian school with great academics and great teachers (who care) and great kids. I would really recommend this school.

My 3rd grader has been here since preschool and we just love it. Small class sizes, caring teachers, great curriculum, good Christian foundation.

My 5 year old went to Immanuel for Pre-school and I must say Mrs. Limback is the greatest teacher ever. She can do it all. The kids love her, the class is never out of order, she teaches them by having fun with them and taking them on many field trips. I can't believe what she gets done in just 3 hours. Her assistant Mrs. Meyerhoff is wonderful too. I definately recommend this class for your pre-schooler!

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.
