WE STRIVE FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
Immanuel Lutheran School exists to provide a Christ-centered education for students in Kingergarten through 8th grade. Our focus is to develop the God-given talents of our students and enable them to use those talents to God’s glory. By developing academically sound young men and women, our team of staff strive to graduate students that can lead others to the true faith of God’s calling in His created world.
We believe that it is each person’s duty to use all of the spiritual, academic, physical, social and emotional gifts that God has bestowed upon us to its fullest potential. In doing so, each student learns of his or her true value as a redeemed member of God’s family and is able to function freely and confidently in society while also being able to witness to others in an increasingly secular world.
At Immanuel after Kindergarten, the grades become blended: First-Second, Third-Fourth, Fifth-Sixth and Seventh-Eighth.
Research has shown that there’s no difference in academic achievement in split classes vs. straight grades. There can actually be many rewards to a combined classroom:
Children learn at different paces. Blended classes offer a wider range of curricula across two grade levels. Advanced students can be more easily challenged with higher-level material; struggling students can more easily return to earlier material.
Encourages bonds with others that are not their age.
Younger children can gain self confidence and maturity by being exposed to older students and older students can learn to be positive, mature role models for the younger students.
Having the greater peer-to-peer learning.
The same teacher for two years can be a benefit since the staff will know the student's abilities better.

Religious training is the main purpose for our Lutheran school. All students will receive daily religious instructions and the Christian faith will be shared in all subject areas.
Our pastor teaches a separate religion course for 7th and 8th graders on Wednesday evenings, preparing the students for the rite of confirmation and for communicant membership in the congregation. The course is open to all students whether they seek communicant membership or not.
Each Wednesday, Immanuel Lutheran School holds a morning worship service. All students attend each of these services, and parents and friends are also encouraged to attend. Offerings are used for charity and mission projects. Each classroom has the opportunity to prepare and lead a chapel service during the school year. During Advent and Lent, students attend the church service in place of the morning chapel service.
In the lower grades (K-2), we use Tara West math curriculum which is a researched-based program. Units are teacher-created, kid-tested, and most importantly, kid-approved! These math units encourage guidance from the teacher while the students learn and teach math through hands-on and engaging math activities with their partners.
In our upper grades (3-8), we use Saxon math, a program that has an incremental spiral-approach, teaching students information in small amounts, and continually repeating concepts to keep newly acquired skills fresh and active.
Our Science programs ensure an in-depth study of topics that help promote long-term learning and understanding of concepts. Lessons build upon one another with the understanding that different sciences are interrelated. The topics chosen for each grade level reflect children’s interests and developmental characteristics.
Immanuel Lutheran School has a multiple choir system designed to answer the needs of the various age levels. The Sonshine Choir (grades K-3), the Junior Choir (grades 4-8), and the Jubilate Choir (select students from grades 4-8) are part of the curriculum. Their primary function is to provide liturgical music for worship services. The choirs will enrich services once a month. Faithful participation, cooperation, and attendance are required of all students.
Students interested in either band or piano in 5th through 8th grade will receive lessons by the public school band director. Students will participate in a full band at the public school. Immanuel band students may prepare and perform an ensemble program for special functions or meetings.
Art is offered to all classrooms once a week for 45 minutes. During the year, students will create multiple projects while exploring a variety of different mediums.
Physical education classes are scheduled for all students at Immanuel. State law requires full participation of each student unless a statement from the family physician indicates otherwise. If the student’s activity needs to be altered because of illness or an injury, a note is required from the parent or doctor that states why the limitation is necessary.
