As a parents of a shy and smart 4 year old boy, we wanted a school that will help him to be more confident of himself. Then we joined the Salem Lutheran School in Junior Kindergarten and we got exactly what we wanted and much much more. Thanks to very good Teachers and an awesome school environment, his confidence has risen tremendously.


Salem to us has been a wonderful change from our previous school. We love that it’s small and friendly. The school community really provides a nurturing, positive environment, allowing our kids to blossom.


Our youngest child is in the JK program and Salem taught her to read at 4 years old. Now that we got that out of the way the second most important thing for us was our children’s happiness. We have two beautiful kids, and at their previous school dropping them off in the morning was a dreaded agonizing experience both for them and us. We were looking for a place that they would be able to fit in and have a sense of community. We found it at Salem. At drop off in the morning our kids safely leap out and run into the school on their own. They love it.


Salem Lutheran school has been a great school for my daughter who is in the Junior Kindergarten class. She looks forward to going to school every day. Mrs. Anita is the miracle worker teacher. The kids love her and she knows how to get them to love learning. I speak with other parents all the time that have their kids in other schools and they are blown away by what my child is learning to do.


Educating students through quality instruction emphasizing Jesus Christ as the foundation of their lives, so their potential can develop in faith.
