Immanuel Lutheran School is proud to offer an excellent academic program to our students.

Our comprehensive curriculum—aligned with Christian teachings and values—is designed to nurture young minds and provide opportunities for individual achievement and growth.

In addition to our academic program itself, students at Immanuel Lutheran School benefit from small class sizes, making it easier to collaborate with peers and forge lasting friendships while also receiving ample attention from teachers.

Special Education

Special services such as health services, speech correction, and reading support services are available to our students when the programs are offered through the public schools.

The AMA Educational Service District offers evaluative and consultative services to identify special education students and those with possible emotional, social, or psychological needs and suggest programs for them. In some instances, arrangements are made to have Immanuel's special education students (K - 6) receive some instruction time from a special education teacher at Besser Elementary.
