I have a son who attends LHHS - they have a really great tutoring program called ArchTutors! I'd really encourage parents to use it for additional supplementation - it's very customizable for your child: https://sites.google.com/site/archtutors/

This school has gone down hill. This used to be a great school, but sadly when enrollment went down they started advertising in new places and the people that they got to come to this school caused it to go down hill. I was in the class of 2013

I am a parent of one student who graduated in 2012 and another one who will graduate in 2015. Both have excelled academically, have been involved in student government and have been in school plays. Both A students, one plays soccer and is learning chineese while the other was in the National Honor Society and won a National Merit Scholarship. The school is first and foremost a college prep school, the teachers and homework challenge the kids. I'm a firm believer that kids will do what is expected of them, problem with many schools, and parents, is low expectations. LHSN sets a high bar. Several text books and most homework are now on school provided i-pads. It's a very diverse school reflecting and preparing your kids for the real world. Your kids will have values reinforced at school like the kind you teach them at home. My daughter who, because of her very hard work and exceptional gene pool had her choice of several elite colleges. Unfortunately she picked the most expensive one. You won't find a better bang for your buck in private education in St. Louis. Figure I pay half what I could pay at some other schools, 3 kids x 4 years, what I saved will pay a college tuition.

Lutheran North has a strong tradition as an excellent school in St. Louis. Students are well-prepared for post-secondary education. The faculty is exceptional, both in terms of expertise and caring. The spiritual community is evident throughout. This is a GREAT school!

I also graduated from Lutheran North in 2003, and as a recent college grad I cant begin to express the high quality of education I recieved there. You can't help who your peers are, but the staff's envolvement and extracurricular ativities offered will do more than make up for any shortcomings. I'm familar wth St.Louis schools both public and private, LHSN is the cream of the crop.

Our children, all Lutheran North grads, have had very successful college careers (and beyond). They were extremely well-prepared for the rigors of college academia. This school's academic strengths include science, math and English. It's also a great Christian community.

I'm in the class of 09 and I like it there,it's alot different from most private schools. There are lots of different people there. The only thing that gets on my nerves is the uniforms, but they have there reasons.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
