This is our third year at SOTL and our three children are thriving. One will be graduating this year- we are very secure in her academic preparedness for high school. This school is strong on academics and our children have enjoyed the extra-curricular activities such as math club, running club, Praise Band, middle school band and and sports. Small class continues to be a plus. SOTL is such an encouragement to our children in their Christian faith. We are not Lutheran, but thank you to Pastor Milatz for his acceptance and encouragement. Looking forward, we only hope we can find a high school with as dedicated, loving and wise staff!

Develops character: Strongly agree

SOTL teaches, models and encourages students to be honest, fair, and have integrity. Memorizing scripture, ten commandments, religion class that discusses principles like these all are part of their teaching. Teachers and Staff model honesty by being quick to admit if they have made a mistake, allowing children to be honest regarding their own shortcomings.

They like to boast about their small class sizes, but my kid's PE class has 40+ students.

We had a bad experience with the pastor of this church/school. Beware! He was rude and disrespectful. I would not recommend this school.

Love the teachers and the way they interact with students at this school! A truly safe place for our children to thrive both academically and spiritually. SOTL has done a superior job balancing faith and reason. Thank you SOTL!!!!!

The school has lots of cliques among adults (you'll swear you're back in junior high school) and unfortunately it trickles down to the children. I sometimes wonder if it has anything to do with the friends/family hiring policies. Academically, they're average (I compare my child's school work against public school work of the same grade), however, they'll tell you they're superior.

Superior place to assist parents in educating their children. We are very happy with our choice. We cannot say enough about the teachers, principal and staff! A pleasure to visit, learn and thrive!

Feel very thankful for Shepherd of the Lakes. Lots of great programs and support, and most of all a Christ-centered education. The teachers and administration communicate well with me. The school atmosphere is very loving.

Our family has had a wonderful experience at Shepherd of the Lakes. The teachers have been kind, caring, and gone above and beyond what we had experienced at public schools. The best part is that my children get to PRAY for others on a regular basis! Everyone from the head pastor, to the Principal, and the teachers have the children s best interest in mind. This year they started a sports program that my daughter has been able to participate in. They also have many other extra-curricular activities for the students. Our family is very pleased with the school at Shepherd of the Lakes.
