Do non-Lutheran families attend ILS?
All families are welcome, regardless of race, color, nationality, ethnic origin or religious beliefs.
What is the cost and is financial assistance available?
At Immanuel, our goal is to reach out to families that need assistance and desire a Christian education for their children.
Please visit our Financial Assistance page or contact Dena Ballagh in the accounting office for more information about this program.
What is the average class size?
The average class size is 20. Immanuel desires to have smaller class sizes so that each teacher may know their students on a personal level. This allows for positive relationships to develop, which aids in creating a close-knit community at school.
What type of curriculum do you use?
Immanuel uses standard textbooks such as those used in other private or public schools. All of our classes are taught by teachers who are professing Christians. We do not follow Common Core programs.
How do you promote the safety of students?
Immanuel has clearly outlined procedures for fire drills, lock down drills, and tornado drills. These drills are practiced on a regular basis throughout the school year. In addition, all faculty hold active certificates in First Aid and CPR. Faculty and staff have walkie talkies when outside the building to ensure quick assistance in the event of a student injury or other safety issue. Once the school day has begun, all outside doors to the school are locked. Visitors, whether parents of currently enrolled students, or prospective families, must check in at the front office and receive a visitor’s badge to be admitted to the school.
Do you have before or after school childcare?
Immanuel provides both before and after school child care. Our regular hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, with the exception of most school holidays. Please contact our Childcare Director, Cheryl Gilbert, regarding availability and hours on holidays and half days. Childcare is designed to assist parents whose work schedule begins or extends beyond the school day. Our program is available for enrolled students from preschool through eighth grade.
