Immanuel Lutheran Church & School School Visitor Information

Immanuel Lutheran School

Immanuel prepares children to both compete and build community. We are fully accredited by the National Lutheran School Accreditation as well as the National Federation of Non-Public Schools. A sizable percentage of the past valedictorians at Washington High School have been graduates of our school. We welcome you to visit our school and talk with Nick or the teachers about enrolling your child in our preschool, prekindergarten, kindergarten or any of the eight grades.

Mr. Nick Hopfensperger serves as principal at Immanuel Lutheran School. He helps teachers and parents prepare their children academically, socially, and spiritually for living out their faith in their family and in the secular world.

Our current school families can access FastDirect, the secure school administration software, by clicking on the link above. FastDirect is an online program that allows the school office to track tuition payments, student grades, daily attendance, and lunch count. It also provides a simplified way for ILS families to track their child’s lunch accounts, view tuition payments that are due, and visit the sports calendar.

Registration Week for 2016-2017

Registration for the 2016-2017 school year is taking place!  Parents are able to stop by the school office any day during the week between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm to register their child(ren). These registration times are open to all interested families from the community whose children do not already attend ILS. If you or someone you know is looking for a Christian education, have them call the school office (636-239-1636) or stop by during the week to get more information.

ILS Receives Top Honors

Immanuel Lutheran School, Washington, MO recently received word that they were among the top performing Lutheran Education School Association schools (27 located in and around the St. Louis area) on the Stanford Achievement Tests for the 2014 - 15 school year. Immanuel ranked 3rd in Reading and 2nd in Spelling of all the Lutheran schools tested.  This accolade is even more impressive with the realization that Immanuel totals the test results of all students, both those with and without Individualized Service Plans, in their scores.  Mr. Nick Hopfensperger, Immanuel Principal, was quoted as saying, “All Lutheran Schools provide quality Christian Education.  The students at Immanuel Lutheran School are certainly blessed, not only because of the academic achievements earned, but more importantly, because they also have the opportunity to learn about the saving grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  This is certainly an achievement in which our students, staff, and families can be proud!”
