F.A.Q. Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Our school began in 1949 when members of the congregation saw a need to provide full time Christian education for its children. There were only two teachers and classes were held in the church basement.
Grade levels include Pre-K through eighth grade taught by six teachers. Throughout its history, our students have come from neighboring school districts as well as northern Iowa.
Our first school building was constructed in 1956. An addition including gymnasium, locker rooms, kitchen, lunchroom, library, media center, office, and storage was added in 1991.
Our school is one of 346 Lutheran elementary schools who are operated by congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).
Approximately 20% of our students are not members of St. John's. We welcome non-members and would love to meet to answer any questions and give a tour of our facilities if parents would like to know more about us. Just contact us at the address or phone number below.
