Academics at Immanuel Lutheran School
Immanuel Lutheran School curriculum complies with Missouri state standards, along with the National Lutheran School Accreditation program. Our K-8 curriculum, One in Christ, is published by Concordia Publishing House to teach students about the Bible, help develop their faith in Jesus Christ and teach them to live a life of service to God. Students receive daily instruction on God’s Word that follows the doctrine of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
It’s the goal of teachers, staff, and our faith community to produce student leaders with a servant’s heart as children grow and develop at Immanuel Lutheran School. Formal lessons are reinforced through school activities and events, where students can model positive Godly behavior and bolster their faith.
In addition to One in Christ, we use a number of other curricula:
Reading: For students in Kindergarten through 2nd grades, we use a program specifically crafted for the learning needs of younger students. The Superkids Reading Program uses the alphabetic principle to teach all aspects of reading with exciting texts and relatable characters.
Tailored for students in 3rd through 6th grades, we use Read Side by Side Reading Program for these grade levels. This system provides a framework for teaching students to read to learn through anticipating events, finding themes and more.
Religion: Teaching students God’s Word through Bible stories and real world applications is a key component to academics at Immanuel Lutheran School. As students mature in their faith, they’re taught specifics of the Lutheran faith and are encouraged to apply the accounts of the Bible to their own lives.
In addition to religion class, all students attend chapel each week, which allows students, staff, parents, and friends of Immanuel Lutheran to join together to worship God through song, prayer, and an uplifting message from the Bible.
Special Classes: Students participate in art, music, physical education, and technology courses weekly. Additionally, students visit the school library weekly in the younger grades and as needed later on.
