Indiana Department of Education has awarded Saint James an "A" rating the last four years and has a long standing reputation of academic excellence. The school is accredited by the State of Indiana and the National Lutheran Schools Association.

    We have been very happy with St. James. I have three kids that attend school there and all of them love it. As a parent I like the fact that the teachers are able to show my children God's love every day. I also know most of the families in my kid s classes. The teachers really care about my kids. It always makes my kids feel special when their teacher comes to their birthday party.

    The school is great. My son is in the 4th grade and is scoring better then others kids he play with that go to Lafayette schools. All the teachers are all great with the kids. The parent volunteer rate is a nice surprise. We as parents feel that our son is getting a well rounded educational experience and is gaining values that will help him as he grows up and enters the real world.
