Meet the Staff

Sending my daughters to LWLHS was the best investment I have ever made because it is such a blessing to have teachers and staff show their love for Jesus every single day.
- Current LWLHS Parent

In every corner of our campus, you’ll find a team member who is passionately committed to preparing our students for life after their days at Living Word Lutheran High School, while simultaneously creating a memorable and positive experience while within our walls.  These are the "rockstar" teachers and staff at Living Word!
