About Immanuel Lutheran School 

Founded in 1924, Immanuel Lutheran School (ILS) is a private Christian school serving grades preschool (2yo) – 8th grade, and is located in Downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico.  For over 100 years ILS has been the primary mission of Immanuel Lutheran Church. The school was founded to provide a school where parents could comfortably and confidently send their children to receive an excellent academic education as well as instill in them morals and values of a Christian faith. 

Immanuel Lutheran School’s mission is at the heart of everything we do. Faculty, staff, and students live the mission every day:

Immanuel Lutheran School is teaching a changeless Christ to a changing world. 

Immanuel Lutheran students are educated and nurtured by a team of professionally licensed, deeply passionate, and dedicated teachers who work to establish meaningful, individual connections with each student. At ILS we have the unique ability to coordinate curriculum and instructional material from preschool through middle school, which  guarantees your student a seamless education as they transition through the different levels of our school.

Our curriculum is aligned with national standards and exceeds state curriculum guidelines. Our curriculum includes a strong Christian foundation rooted in Lutheran theology and rigorous academics in language arts (reading, listening, spelling, writing), mathematics, social studies, and science. In addition to the core curriculum, students at Immanuel experience art, music, physical education, Spanish and technology. Immanuel Lutheran School is accredited by the National Lutheran Schools Accreditation program and the State of New Mexico. ILS is also a Blue-Ribbon School recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. 

In addition to faith and education, at Immanuel, you will find a family-oriented community. We carefully cultivate and value the partnership between school and home working together to meet the needs of every student. We also love to get together beyond the classroom – from season musical performances and sports, worship services and pot lucks, to campus clean ups and fundraising, everyone at Immanuel has a role.
