I have two children at SLS and they love it! It is a wonderful school where they learn about Jesus while maintaining high academic standards. My kids encounter things that at any school, public or private, might have to deal with, but at SLS all situations are handled according with a Christian perspective. I am so grateful for a school that reinforces what we teach our kids at home.

Great fine arts & athletics programs! Parent involvement & classroom technology are excellent. Academics @ SLS is average or below. I compared SLS with public school, & by 8th gr, SLS is behind public school in math. I was disappointed with the reading curriculum. My child never read to the teacher ("reading" was listening to a tape of a woman reading the story TO the class). Teachers should form appropriate reading groups in a class! I found 2-3 teachers to be a bit "snooty." One teacher made me move my car because I was in their "spot." (Teachers don't have designated "spots" though) The environment is lacking. I expected my child to be in a place where bullying wasn't allowed & structure the norm. My experience was disappointing. There are kids at SLS that should have been (according to the school handbook) in detention or suspended for continuous disrespect & defiance. Neither happened. This interrupted my child's education. I know 3 families that left for this reason.The principal is fun. Perhaps too fun & not enough of discipline. He ignores problems. I believe this is because it is hard to discipline kids when you go to church with their parents. Call it "politics"

End the search for the best school in Springifled, because here it is. Tucked in a super residential neighborhood, SLS is THE place to be. The early childhood program is hands down the best in the area and has the most qualified teachers, even some who won national awards for their teaching and knowledge. Older students enjoy a challenging academic program as well as a great sports and fine arts program. They met with my family for a personal tour and immediately built a relationship with us. SLS is the best!

I think this school is one of the best-kept secrets in Springfield. Families from other surrounding areas send their children here (not just Springfield residents), including parents who teach in public schools/the local universities, because they prefer the Christian atmosphere and positive learning environment. Take a tour and check it out.

SLS is one big happy family. My child has attended SLS since pre-school and currently is in the 5th grade. We've been pleased with every teacher & all the staff members throughout our experience. The halls are full of laughter, whistling, singing & smiles. I'm sad to see it end after 8th grade but rejoice in knowing that my child's learning began with a solid foundation in a Christian atmosphere. I am confident & secure that she, armed with her faith, will be prepared for high school both academically and emotionally. THANK YOU SLS!

Springfield Lutheran School is an excellent school. My children are receiving the highest quality education in a Christian atmosphere of loving and caring teachers. They participate in a number of activities including music and sports. Parent involvement is very high. I know almost all of my children's classmates and their parents. This school is our home. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

SLS is an outstanding environment to learn and grow. My daughter has attended from pre-school through 8th grade and is excellently prepared for high school both academically and emotionally. I am very excited to begin the process all over again with my first grader. I strongly encourage you to visit and talk to our staff, students and parents. SLS is a family that supports and encouraged each other.

SLS is a wonderful place for children. They work with students from the age of three-year olds to eighth graders. The school has excellent academics and a very caring and compassionate staff. Your family will feel a part of a caring school community as soon as your child is enrolled. They have one classroom of each grade with may experienced teachers. If you are eager to offer the best opportunity for your child to learn and develop leadership skills SLS is for you.
