School History

Christ Lutheran School (originally First Lutheran) has been sharing Christ’s love through education in our community for nearly 150 years.

Learning Environment & Curriculum

CLS teachers use alternative seating to help students work. Our above grade-level curriculum gives students a firm educational foundation.


Using Google Classroom with Chromebooks and programming Dash and Dot robots are highlights for students in the area of technology.

iPads and a computer lab enhance learning and offer students the opportunity to be creative using devices.

Innovative Teaching Methods

Our teachers engage students with hands-on learning projects, experiments, scavenger hunts, STEM activities and more.

Aftercare or Tutoring

Our extended care program called Falcon Club runs from 7-7:30 a.m. and 3-6 p.m. Students are able to play, eat a snack and work on homework with a caring and fun after-school care staff.
