Our school was founded in 1882. St. John's is one of approximately 880 elementary schools under the support of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, and is located within the Pacific Southwest District.
We are blessed to have 807 total students for the 2020-2021 school year. That breaks down to 685 students K-8, and 122 students in preschool.
St. John’s student scholars communicate and collaborate effectively, think critically, and use creativity through out their academic and fine art learning.
St. John’s student scholars use technology and digital media responsibly and innovatively across subjects and 21st century themes to build life and learning skills.
St. John’s student scholars and staff deliver the restorative hope of Jesus through connecting to God, growing together, and sharing Christ. They make responsible decisions to grow in understanding and appreciation of God’s diverse creation and people.
St. John's Lutheran Church and School is focused first and foremost on the gospel of Jesus Christ. This gospel declares to us that God isn't angry, wrathful or disassociated from his people. Rather God, through his Son Jesus Christ, is shown to be merciful, forgiving, loving and deeply committed to mankind in a personal manner.
The focus of our teaching is from the Holy Bible which we confess is the inspired Word of God. The Bible dictates all of our teaching and practice. We believe that the Bible's main purpose is to show us Jesus and that through Jesus we have eternal life. (John 20:21-22) Our sermons and studies are filled with the Good News of God's love and are rooted in the Word of God.
St. John's teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.
As we grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, we cannot help but overflow with a life of service. There are abundant opportunities for us to serve others all around us. We want to help guide you on that journey, as you discover how he plans to use you as an agent of his grace and a proclaimer of the Gospel message.
