My son has been attending Calvary Lutheran School since he was 18 months old. He's now finishing up Kindergarten, and we could not be happier with the quality of education he's receiving. He's reading fluently at a first grade level and beyond, and his writing, math, art and music skills are remarkable. We attribute his success to his wonderful teacher and the nurturing classroom environment she provides. Our second son is in Preschool at Calvary, and he's doing equally well. His teachers love him so much, and we love them, too. Calvary Lutheran School is a community of faith, friendship and academic excellence. It's a very happy environment where kids can explore their interests, try new things and share their thoughts without fear of judgment or bullying. For our family, Calvary just feels like "home." We've made strong friendships with the other families and look forward to seeing our kids grow up together. I would heartily recommend Calvary to any Kansas City family that's looking for an excellent education and enriching school environment for their child. You don't have to be Lutheran to attend. Calvary is for everyone, and it's truly one of the best schools in the city.

The cost of this private christian school is very reasonable specifically when you compare the level of education your child receives! Calvary students test very well compared to students in other private & public schools! Our teachers provide strong instruction in academics and christian principles with just the right balance. The school also provides a good mix of extra-curricular activies; including music, arts, sports, and academic bowls. Parent involvement is a significant addition to the close-knit environment. If you are looking for a small classroom setting your child can grow in academically and spiritually, you need look no further than Calvary Lutheran Schools!

I have been a part of calvary for about 6 years. I love it! I believe that this is one of the finest Christian schools in the area. Both the school and church community 'family' is sincere and compassionate to the individual and his or her needs. Gods love is alive and moving in this community in every real since of the word. These children are not only taught the bible but they know it, and truly model it for others. The children are held to high academic standards, and taught by many veteran teachers who consistently model God's love and guidance.

Calvary's goal is for each child to succeed and become a force for good in the world. They emphasize saving faith and faith in action. They are great with academics and discipline. When children and families struggle in any area of life, they do what they can to address the situation. They seek out resources to help people live responsibly and be accountable so the family can thrive. Through it all, there is genuine love longing to help all be faithful and successful. It's not just school; it's total ministry within a truly caring community.

My daughter has been at Calvary's Early Education Program, and now school since she was 3 months old. Calvary is like her second family. I see her growing each year, not only as a student, but as a caring young girl. She is not only being taught what she needs to know academically, but also as a whole person.

You can sense a Christian family feeling when you enter the buildings. Our teachers are experienced, caring individuals that truly are engaged in the lives of their students. They care! Our graduates regularly inform us that they are academic leaders in their high schools but also are leaders in other ways among their peers - music, student government, and many others.

With 5 children, we have experience with 7 parochial schools in KC. All had excellent academics. All say they are about values, character development and Christian principles, but only Calvary has exhibited grace, kindness, and Christian values in the education and care for its student body and parent community. What's truly unique about Calvary is its people. Sounds trite, and all schools say it, but THIS one delivers! Children blossom under the leadership and instruction at Calvary.

This school does a good job as long as your child has no special needs. If your child has something like ADHD then they fail. They do not have the personnel trained in dealing with challenging students. My advice is to save the money from the tuition for this school and apply it to a collge savings plan.

Calvary is the best school my children have ever attended! We have lived in several states and have an extensive family. We have yet to find a school that offers as much as Calvary does. Each student is valued, cared for, loved! What more could a parent want when this is coupled with an excellent educational experience?! Our oldest sailed through Rockhurst taking honors and AP classes! He credits this with a Calvary education!
