At St. John's Luthern School they have the most caring teachers. It is a small school, where everyone feels welcome. The children from this school also excel in academics, this is shown when they go to high school, and further on in their lives.

I also recommend this school. Most students go on to excel in academics and athletics at the high school level. This school has produced the valedictorian at Montello High School 8 of the last 9 years. It also has produced many all conference and honorable mention athletes throughout the years.

Very caring teachers and parents. Highly recommend this school. It is true anyone can attend this school, and encouraged to join the Wels synod church, but not required. Teaching children to be caring, responsible and educated.

This school is not a 'private' school so called. Anyone may enroll their children in this school. You will be encoraged to join the WELS synod chruch.(Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod) This school has Christ-centered learning, many sports including soccer, softball, basketball, track in the spring, cheerleading and more! Our sports teams have won many assocation grade school tournaments and games.Teachers really help the students learn and people are very nice. Parents can confront the teacher with any problem nessasary and it will be taken care of. I will suggest this school highly for anyone interested.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
