My son just graduated from their ECE program and my wife and I couldn't be happier with their excellent program and caring staff. We relocated a few times in the past several years before settling down in Houston, and none of the previous schools he attended made him as happy, involved, while learning so much at the same time (the list includes university affiliated preschools, Catholic school affiliated preschools and Montessori schools). My son went from recognizing alphabets to reading short stories in just a few months, and he frequently expresses how he miss his teacher on weekends and couldn't wait to get back to school on Monday morning. They have a full sized gym where their sports activities are held three times a week (optional, with nominal fee), two large playgrounds, and their classrooms are dedicated to learning activities while recess and free play take place in the large open space right outside the classroom. We really like such an arrangement, since it allows the kids to focus and not bing interrupted by others, compared to "open classrooms". In short, we are so happy with Immanuel Lutheran School and would recommend it to anyone close to the heights/inner loop.

I m very happy with Immanuel Lutheran School. I think it is a great school. The staff is very friendly and care so much about the kids. I m also happy with their educational curriculum and values they teach to the kids.

Immanuel Lutheran School ECE enrolls 18 months to Kindergarten. We used to have 18 months to 8th grade but had to close 1st thru 8th at the end of the 2010-2011 school year. It was a very sad and hard decision since the school has been here for the church congregation and neighborhood since 1927. Yes, we did go through some difficult educational times then (our 1st through 8th grades), but our ECE program has always been exceptional and is thriving thanks to a wonderful staff, administration and of course you parents! Thank you for sharing our school with your friends and family. The school has truly touched the lives of many young people over the years and we thank you for allowing us to touch yours with a Christian education..

My daughter started at Immanuel in the Mother's Day Out program and we couldn't be more impressed with this school! The teachers are loving and very attentive to every need! The staff in the office and other classrooms make a conscience effort to get to know you and your child. There is a real sense of family. Also, there is a curriculum (as much as you can have with toddlers) to teach spanish, colors, numbers ect. It's not just glorified babysitting. My son now attends the MDO program as well! If you are at all nervous about sending your child to school, this is a perfect place for you!

I currently have one child attending and my 5 year old is moving on this month to another school only because Immanuel did not have enough kids for a Kindergarten class (or else she would have been there). We love this school and all of their administrative personnel and teachers. My 3 year old is learning very well and my 5 year old tested out at 93 on the HISD gifted and talented matrix this year. Some of the teachers assistants have babysat for us, and were wonderful. I love hearing my children sing the songs that they learned in school, and they are always excited about their teachers. Every child I ever have will always come here for early learning!!!!

There seems to be some confusion regarding this school. The Immanuel Luthern school at this address is an ECE centre. Some reviews are referring to another school which appears to be for older students. This Immanuel Luthern is specifically for children aged 18 months to pre kindergarten.

My daughter started at 18 months and will be attending preK here next month. I found the school on this site and checked it out because of hearing the "best kept secret in the Heights" comment. We are so happy we found this school! Our family is not religious and this is not the reason we picked it for our daughter. We toured many schools and this is the one my daughter let me put her down in. When my daughter started napping here at 2 years old the teacher would rub her back to help her fall asleep. The loving teachers are a wonderful reason to go here. Over the last couple of years they have made other improvements in security, facilities and technology. They have iPads in all the classrooms and the preK kids get personal ones to use in class. My son is going to have the same teacher my daughter had when he starts the morning program next month at 20 months. This is not a daycare. This is a caing environment to send your children to socialize and learn.

My daughter is in the youngest class so I cannot speak about anything but my experience with this room. My daughter loves it! It is like night and day from our previous daycare. My daughter comes home singing songs I haven't sang to her (ring around the rosies, Jesus loves me, etc). They seem to do a lot of activities (music, art, chapel, sand play, etc) and stimulate them. The teachers are always willing to talk about my child's day. Her teacher said that my daughter is quite so they set aside some time with her to get her to open up. They work on her writing her name, talking about animals, etc. I feel like she gets some individual attention and what is nice is I know they do the same for all the kids. My daughter doesn't cry to be dropped off and is indifferent when I get there (so opposite from my experience in her last school). My daughter did get a bump on her head one day at school and I was immediately called. We have not had ANY problems or bad gut feelings. We highly recommend this school.

I am so lucky to have found a school so close to my home with loving and knowledgable teachers. My child is learning quickly and loves going to school. The teachers spend quality time with the parents as well to keep them informed. The school is overzealous in keeping me informed of concerns or compliments that have regarding my child. People should not write reviews on something they haven't experienced first hand. Immanuel Lutheran is wonderful.

To the response about biting and drawing blood. It is amazing that the parent was never told anything near as severe in regards to the biting issue and the biting was only one issue in the many phone calls. if that was true, that is a very important detail that VERY parent should have been informed about for health reasons as well as safety. This parent was not informed. When a teacher labels a child, it is WRONG. I think this school has teachers that are not qualified teachers and your response is to make things seem better.

i think this is a great starting place for developing a christian attitude and a loving child. My little one runs full speed in the door every morning with excitment and is very well loved. its like a little family there. He has learned things that hadn't even thought about teaching him! I love this little hidden treasure of a school!

Pass this School by. Had my child here for 2 yrs and the standard of education is very poor. Teachers are very unrealistic and do little to help despite the small class sizes. Most teachers are not accrediated in Tx. New Principal did little to improve the School overall. Many parents have left the past few years do to teacher problems.

Immanuel is the best kept secret in Houston. The staff strives to meet the needs of all the students. I have one child that has graduated from Immanuel and she is doing great in High school. I thank her teachers and Immanuel for that.

Immanuel is not what I expected it to be. The learning is not accelerated with the technology of today. The discipline is okay, but I believe the teachers show lots of favoritism. I really did not like the idea that they place teachers in the position of principals just to fill in an empty space, therefore the teachers have double responsibilities and can not focus on the academics of the students. On the behalf of sports, they really do not have coaches with experience to teach the fundamentals of any of the sports that they offer. The manpower is very limited at this school. My children attended there for five years and it was only for convenience, which I regret doing now. This is a school that is not what it appears to be. I would not reccommend it to anyone.

The teachers at Immanuel are outstanding. If you want a Christian school that trains children academically and beyond, then this is the place to be.

ILS is a great academic school & my kids love attending there. They are challenged in every aspect of their work and are excelling thanks to their wonderful teachers. The 8th grade teacher is the best & my 13 year old loves school again! My 2nd grader is also excelling, due to his great teacher. The church is also a big part of our lives there. I love the fact that my kids are shown how Christianity factors into everyday life and that they have the freedom to express their love of God. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a good Christian Private School
