Get Involved

Students and parents love Dubuque Lutheran School.  This is an exceptional place where your child will excel academically within a secure Christian environment.  But despite the outstanding student-to-teacher ratio (currently an average of 14 students per classroom), we still need parents and community members to participate and join the school community.  Click here to find out how you can get involved and make a real and practical difference in the lives of DLS students.
