ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

King of Kings Lutheran School offers classes in kindergarten through eighth grade in a unique, multi-grade format. Except for kindergarten, teachers teach either two or three grades per classroom. Grades one and two, three to five, and six to eight are taught by the same teacher. This format gives the students leadership and learning reinforcement, as well as advancement opportunities not found in the traditional “single-grade per teacher” format. With multi-grade classrooms, the younger students hear and absorb the lessons of the grade above while the older students’ knowledge is reinforced during the lessons of the grade below. In addition, the older students have the opportunity to grow as leaders as they mentor and tutor the students in the grade(s) below.

Our Classrooms

At King of Kings Lutheran School, we offer a unique multi-grade classroom structure that benefits our students immensely. A multi-grade classroom is a natural extension of life in the real world and home life. Our students are developing social skills and learning as they interact with classmates of different ages and abilities.

Since our teachers are with students for two or more years, they develop a deeper understanding of each child’s individual learning style and needs. With this knowledge, our teachers are able to adapt lessons to the distinct needs of our students.

Below are two great videos that help further explain our multi-grade structure. The first video gives you an idea of a typical day in a multi-grade classroom setting. The second video explains benefits of this learning environment.

Mrs. Nancy Sanchez

I have the privilege of teaching kindergarten here at King of Kings Lutheran School. I hold a dual degree from Long Beach State University in Child Psychology and Health Education, and I completed a five-year program in doctrinal studies from Martin Luther College in Minnesota. I have also completed many courses in Early Childhood and Special Education. I am constantly striving to update my education and my curriculum.

I have been teaching God’s precious lambs at King of Kings Lutheran School for 19 years. These have been rewarding years full of joys, hugs, and laughter. One of life’s greatest rewards is seeing my former students grow into strong Christian adults, thanks to the foundation of a solid Christian education that they have received here at King of Kings Lutheran School. Some of these former students include my own four daughters who are former students at King of Kings Lutheran School. It warms my heart to see that the family of friends they made at King of Kings Lutheran School is still active in their lives today.

My passion is teaching, so I am active in Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, and volunteering at Good Shepherd Bible Camp during the summer months.

God has truly blessed King of Kings Lutheran School with a strong academic program based upon His Word. I am a member of a loving, talented staff that cares about the students and their families. We strive to prepare the children for the present, for the future, and for eternity. To God be the glory.
