I couldn't be happier with our choice of kindergarten for my son. He is learning, having fun and well taken care of. Green Park has been a fantastic choice for our family. The teachers are awesome.

GPLS has everything (and more) that we were looking for in a private Christian education for our child: 1. Devoted, high quality, Christian teachers and school staff 2. Caring, supportive, and involved parents 3. Challenging curriculum 4. Variety of extra curricular opportunities 5. Beautiful and well maintained conveniently located campus 6. Green Park is well established in the south county community and looking forward to a bright future!

Green Park Lutheran School is a warm and welcoming community. The teachers at GPLS are devoted to providing a quality education to their students in a nurturing Christian environment. Academics are challenging and encourage each student to grow and achieve to the best of their ability. GPLS offers programs and opportunities in many areas such as musical experiences (including strings, band, music appreciation, and choir), athletics (multiple sports available), and after school clubs, such as Lego League robotics club. The school nurse is on staff daily for the majority of each school day, which is an added bonus above the norm when compared to similar schools. GPLS parents are committed to partnering with the school staff to make Green Park a wonderful place for kids to learn and grow!

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.
