Parent Quotes about LHSI
"We absolutely love Lutheran High School! Our son struggled socially before coming to this school, and now has been taken in by his peers and loves going to school. Academically the school is well prepared to instruct the students and is highly committed to a 'real world' view of learning, always keeping faith at the forefront of all teachings. We could not be more pleased! From the admissions director, to the teachers, to the principal, to the pastor, you will not find a better high school in all of Indiana. Our commute is an hour each way, per day, and I don't think a thing of it- this is truly a remarkable school."
"Sending our daughter to Lutheran High School was one of the best decisions we have made as parents. The teachers and staff actually care if my child is successful and is helping her grow into a young Christian adult. I feel that they are part of our family and look forward to opening all the doors that Lutheran High is leading my child to."
"LHSI is an answer to prayer as to where do I send my son to school!1. Wisdom is here. The Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. 2. Jesus is here Col. 2:3. He is modeled in the teachers, staff, and coaches. Nowhere have we seen these qualities more evident in other private or public schools. The teachers are interested in each student and do their best to help them. There is a non-judgmental attitude among the staff and school. 3. The students here are helpful and accepting of others. They are a joyful, shining example of what Christ compels us to be. 4. Academically, LHSI is challenging and rewarding. Excellence is encouraged. However, even those students who struggle are valued, encouraged and given opportunity to succeed. 5. Extra curricular activities are encouraged for all students such as sports, drama, etc. to provided students with the opportunity to feel a part of the LHSI family and belonging. These qualities are unmatched in any previous schools attended. Then the King will answer and say "As you have done it to the least of these, you have done it to Me. Matt. 25:40. Christ is here. These are great rewards waiting here at LHSI!"
"From recruitment through enrollment and into the first year, our experience has been incredibly personal, attentive, and focused on our daughter making a successful transition to high school. The staff and faculty have shown to be driven towards providing a strong curriculum and a Christ-centered environment for the students. There is a clear emphasis on academic achievement and creating strong partnerships between the faculty and the students. There are countless opportunities for students to find their place at LHSI from peer ministry, volunteerism, athletics, academic clubs, to theatre. Our daughter thanks us daily for the opportunity to attend LHSI. She appreciated the commitment our family has made to having her attend this school. We sing praises of thanksgiving for having this great high school in our city."

"Lutheran High School of Indianapolis has the tradition of providing a superior education in a Christian atmosphere of love and caring. Each day, we provide a challenging curriculum along with nurturing support to encourage our students to develop to their fullest potential academically, physically, socially, creatively, and spiritually. At LHSI, we address the needs of the 'whole student' - academic excellence as well as personal spiritual development are the rule rather than the exceptation. These lessons are taught not only to allow the students the opportunity to grow during their time with us, but also to take these lessons and make them life-long learning tools." - Rev. Robert W.
