Why St. James

Our St. James!! Seven years ago our decision for our children to attend St. James Lutheran School was made for two main reasons.  First, we wanted our kids to attend a Christian School and, secondly, we were uncomfortable with our public school options.  We are not members of the congregation of St. James Church so we decided at that time we would take each year as a new beginning and re-evaluate our options.  The experiences of our children at St. James have made our evaluation process easier and easier with each passing year. A Faithful Experience The faculty at St. James has done a wonderful job of teaching the Word and helping our children grow in their understanding of their Christian faith.  Whether it be in the classroom, weekly chapel or in the many extracurricular opportunities, both Ben and Sarah, have shown growing confidence and interest in growing in their walk with the Lord. The Classroom Ben and Sarah are very different in their approach to school yet both have flourished under the direction of the St. James Faculty.  Small class sizes, up-to-date learning tools and faculty that is dedicated to their development have made the difference.  Whether it was extra tutoring in Math or improving confidence and leadership in classroom activities the faculty has been a large contributor to Ben and Sarah’s growth as people. Extra-Curricular Activities Whether be on-stage for a performance or on the basketball or soccer field the classmates, families and coaches from St. James improve the experience of the kids on a regular basis.  There are opportunities for our kids to grow in drama, choir and sports that have helped each improve their confidence.  Even through St. James is small there have been just the right amount of opportunities for our kids and we look forward to even more opportunities in the future. The St. James Family One of the most impressive attributes of the St. James experience are the families and children we encounter daily.  Our children have made great friends and we, likewise, have made great friends over the past years.  We have been welcomed into the St. James family while not belonging to the Church congregation.  We encourage any family, Lutheran or otherwise, to look at St. James as a great place for not just the growth of children but of the entire family.  We no longer re-evaluate each year but rather look forward to the upcoming year to see what new growth and challenges will be presented to us and how the St. James Family of faculty, students and parents will work together to do Gods will.
