The elementary school, of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, dates back to the decade between 1830 and 1840 when a number of Lutheran congregations organized in the Midwest states and established Christian schools for their children. The first of these schools is older than public schools in most states. Lutheran schools seek to work closely with the public schools in fulfilling the responsibilities of education in the community. Immanuel Lutheran is one of 2,569 Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod churches involved in the operation of a School and Early Childhood Center.
Immanuel Lutheran School began as a small parochial school in 1911 with the pastor as the teacher. In 1946, the school reopened in a new building on Shoup and Blake Streets. Many of the great-grandparents, still in our church, helped dig the foundation and construct the building. Teachers were hired and Lutheran Christian education was available to everyone in Twin Falls. In the fall of 1983 the Christian Life Center, currently housing Immanuel Lutheran School, was dedicated and opened its first class. In 2007 four additional classes were added to accommodate our growing early childhood program.
The faculty and staff welcome you and your family to Immanuel Lutheran School. Our excellent curriculum and teaching methods are only a small part of what we offer. The strength of our school lies in our dedication to demonstrate our love for Christ and His love for the children in all areas of academics and activities. You are welcome to come and be a part of our school at any time.
Immanuel Lutheran Church continues to support the school prayerfully and financially, and is committed to making Christian education available in the Magic Valley area throughout the future
