West Portal Lutheran School provides quality, full-time Christian education and is a ministry of West Portal Lutheran Church. The school exists to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and TEACHING them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 To achieve excellence in Lutheran education there must be a focus, cooperation and a partnership among students, parents and teachers. Parents have been given the primary responsibility and promise by our Lord to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6. Research continues to prove the home as the most influential classroom, and parents are the most influential teachers. Every person on the staff at West Portal Lutheran promises you their best efforts to use the abilities and skills with which God has blessed us. With the blessing of our Lord, we accept the challenge to assist you in the education of your child. We look forward to a great school year and thank you for having the confidence in us to help you in the nurturing of your child.
