    FLSM has been a great school in the past it is even better now a warm caring staff that is always available kids that are really great and knowing themmakes your life richer. You see how the principle gives so much of herself to give each child that they are eager to learn and get a high quality education. They get morals and values which parents want reinforced which does not happen at public school. It a really great school.

    Who ever posted that comment Aug. 16 2009 We disagree. That principal is a blessing to the school and our lives. Mommy and Daddy have nothing to do with it. The principal has given so much time and unselfish dedication to the shcool. We need more just like her. First Lutheran is still one of the best school in Monrovia

    First Lutheran is an excellent school. Smaller class sizes allow our kids to get individual attention and excel. They teach good moral character and teach our children how to be leaders in the futer

    My children attended FLS for many years. It was a good school. The principal took a job in another state and the school board never hired another principal only a 'director'. The director was not a teacher and had no experience in teaching. The enrollment has gone down every year. All of the classes are combination classes except kindergarten and they have only 4 students. The school is having money problems and to help with this they bring Korean students (20-30) over for 1 or 2 months to get money. The kids are great but it is disruptive to have and influx of students that speak only some English. My children now go to other schools and I now know that I should have made the move years ago. I do not know how long a school can go on with so few students.

    First Lutheran School Monrovia is one of the best private & Christian School in this neighborhood. We are blessed to send our children at an affordable tuition. The campus & facilities are great for the kids! The children are getting good academic and spiritual education. All staff are dedicated to bring out the best from each children individually.

    My son who is now in 1st grade has been attending since pre-school. School has improved greatly in the last year due to new Principal and staff at school. There is now great tutoring programs being offered during extended day care hours to help your child with his/her homework and more activities are planned for the school year. I plan to enroll my daughter in the pre-school next year.

    This school has provided my children an excellent education for the past five years. Teachers are caring and have allowed them to excell at their own pace. They have taught my children excellent Christian values.

    I chose the school for my child because she is receiving a total education. The academic program is strong. My child is able to excell in math with individualized curriculum. They have an after school sports program computer lab music art. I also like the Christian education aspect of the school. I know my child is learning great values. My daughter comes homing knowing she is loved and God's child. Her teacher takes extra time in the classroom and does a lot of on-hands learning. The administration is professional and accessable unlike another school my daughter attended. For our family First Lutheran has been a great experience.

    First Lutheran provides a loving caring and safe school that provides an education beyond academics. They teach to the whole child.

    I pulled my daughter out of here after attending less than two years here. The problem was the kids not the curriculum. There were too many problem kids and the school/staff rarely did anything about it. This was not a safe place for 'nice' kids.

    The quality of the academic programs is very high and is probably about 1 year more advanced than most public schools. There is some soccer basketball piano and art instruction available. The parental involvement required is not high and not really encouraged and I did not care for the lack of unnecessarily boring chapels which are required of all students. Overall this school rates about a B average.
