The school reaches out to the community to educate children of all faiths and denominations (including the un-churched) in a Christ-centered environment.  About 70% of the student body is comprised of non-Lutheran community members.  A parent recently stated it like this, “Keeping our Faith in our daily routine is very important to us. The small family atmosphere is unmatched here, at Dubuque Lutheran School.
