    I could not be happier with Hope Lutheran School. My child is learning not only academic skills but how to be a compassionate caring person. I feel like Hope Lutheran School is truly a second family for us. I highly recommend it for anyone...I really love our school!

    If you are looking for a christian education Hope provides it. If you are looking for a christian environment don't count on it. The students teachers and parents (many) do not bring true christian values to their everyday lives. More bullying children arrogant rude parents and cruel teachers than you'd find in an quality public school. My children have been happier more successful and better educated since leaving. Please don't be fooled by the 'christian education' tag line. It's a farce.

    Very strong preschool. Appropriate curriculum plenty of structure yet it allows exploration time for children. The teachers are experienced and loving. Teaching Christian faith is integrated into the whole program. It was a great start for my sons!

    Both our boys currently attend Hope and have done so since Pre-K. The staff at Hope are great in so many ways. In addition to a solid christian education (note we attend a non-lutheran church) we know of many many families with Hope kids that have excelled from day one in both public and private HS. There are very good sports and after school activities as well. The only drawback (but can also be a plus) is that parent involvement is a must in a private school like this.

    This is an exceptional school. I do not know how else to describe its excellent facilities and teaching staff. It's a wonderful place to make good friends memories and morals. I highly recommend this school.
