    My children have been so blessed at ILS. I can NOT say enough about the dedication of the teachers. I live right near school, and I see the teachers there late at night, some early morning getting things ready for their classrooms. I've even seen this during the summer! They care not only about the academics, but they care about my children. Like I said, my children are very blessed to be at Illinois Lutheran.

    Illinois Lutheran is WONDERFUL! Great environment turning out students prepared and confident. The Churches affiliated with the school are also great!
    This school guides all students to be Christians while achieving a high academic
    education.
    The teachers are faithful, helpful and very understanding. They really do go above and beyond to help a student understand better. I appreciate the daily chapel and know that my children are learning about God every single day. This will dramatically change their lives as they continue to grow and mature, especially in the world that we live in today.
