After a VERY disappointing experience in Eden Prairie public schools, my child thrived at BLS! The teacher was very attentive to my son's needs and provided much more challenging work for my gifted student. The public school system had written him off as ADHD and high-maintenance because he asked many more questions than the other students. EP gave him remedial work because that was the level his classmates were at in the public school classroom. The classes were so large in EP that the teacher had to spend all her time dealing with the underachieving students (and there were many.) The teacher at BLS was very in tune with my child's needs and was patient enough to really work with him so that his intelligence could shine through. She was truly a God-send and worked hard to make sure the environment was set up for his success. We HIGHLY recommend this school to anyone who has had enough of the overflowing/herd mentality of the public school system. The access to the teachers, quality teaching tools, affordable tuition, and Christ-centered lessons made all the difference and we are SO GRATEFUL for Bloomington Lutheran School. I just wish we had placed him here sooner.
We love this school! Our two children (kindergarten and 3rd grade) love it as well. The students and teachers do well with the curriculum and textbooks chosen and are learning the same information as their public school counterparts. (Though without all of the behavior and ESL distractions, they are able to cover it more in depth and learn material quicker.) The school has a very personal touch and feels much like small town community nicely located in a large suburb. We live in Eagan and the school bus is able to pick the girls up in the morning and get them all the way over there. The staff really goes above and beyond to cooperate with parents and families for a positive outcome! I would highly recommend this school to anyone interested!
Bloomington Lutheran School is a wonderful Christian School with a strong academic focus and extracurricular activites for everyone. The teachers are high caliber and the students and parents are outstanding.
