Welcome To Immanuel Elementary K-6

Welcome to Immanuel Elementary School where we proudly proclaim Jesus as the center of our education. Our school uniquely blends rigorous academic programs with solid Biblical teaching. Each morning we gather as a student body to pray and recognize the blessing we have in knowing Christ and proclaiming His truth.

At Immanuel Elementary, we value students and relationships. We are blessed with teachers and staff who have a passion for knowing Jesus and shaping young minds. Our desire is to partner with families to educate the whole child – mind, body, and soul. In addition to core subjects, elementary students participation in music, art, physical education, technology, and chapel each week. Our unique K-12 campus fosters community through three district sections (elementary, junior high, and high school) and creates a family-focused atmosphere. 

Our theme this year, Dwell in Him, is taken from Ephesians 3:16-18: “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his spirit in your inner most being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith – that you being rooted and grounded in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” In this ever changing world, we count it a privilege to train-up the next generation to fully understand Christ’s love for us and in turn, to love others.

Our academic program is both rigorous and balanced. We make curriculum decisions based on what is best for creating well-rounded, responsible, and motivated learners. See our curriculum guides for further information on grade-level specifics.
We believe in the importance of teaching our students the meaning of "Serve Beyond Self". Students and staff participate in various service projects throughout the year.
