"We searched the Bayridge neighborhood far and wide for a suitable Pre-School for our son and after settling on LES and starting school, we knew immediately that we had made the right choice.

Our son comes home gushing about his teachers and we are super excited about the amazing friends he has made in his class. You cant make a better choice than joining the Lutheran Elementary School family."
