My child went here preschool - 3rd grade. An amazing school with Christian values, high standards, exceptional leveled leaning program, and loving teachers who help the students become confident eager learners. I love the family caring atmosphere that this school has. I would love for my child to continue here through high school if it was available.

My son went there for two years and they have an excellent program. It's very structured and organized and the preschool room is spacious, not a tiny little overcrowded area like some preschool classrooms. One thing I appreciated about this preschool is the level of order - I remember before their CHristmas program, instead of stressed out, excited hyper kids running around beforehand, we showed up with our son and the kids were all calm and sitting together while the teacher was reading a story. This kind of order and organization gives children a sense of safety and security. My son came out of his shell a lot during 2 years here. Only thing I wasn't impressed with is lack of creative art projects. But great school.

I am very happy with St. John Lutheran School & Little Lambs preschool. My son just finished the 4s preschool class there, and went immediately to enroll in the kindergarten class. The teachers are excellent, and the classroom for kindergarden is fine. I know the school is looking for a new building long term, but really, I am MORE concerned with quality of teaching then what the classroom looks like.

Great Preschool but, elementary is in a basement with poor surroundings, tuition is set far too high for what you getting. If you are looking for higher academics and challenge to your child, I would look further.

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.
