Academics are such a critical component of a successful high school education, it can be difficult to look beyond them when building out an ideal experience for your children. But high school clubs also have a tremendous impact on success in high school and beyond.
Parents who research high school choices for their children weigh many factors in order to make the best possible decisions. In many cases, class size ranks highly among those factors. For parents who are considering private schools, there is often a profound difference in class size versus public schools.
Here at Lutheran High, we are a Parker private high school committed to our students’ success. For our administration, teachers, and staff, that success encompasses more than academics. We proudly promote our robust curriculum and supportive environment.
Each year, the administration at Lutheran High starts looking towards next year to think through what we can add, expand, and improve to make our school even better equipped to serve students in the future. This year is no different. We are excited to share plans to expand all aspects of the school from athletic and academic to the physical building.
An average high school student will spend more than 4,000 hours at school in four years. We do not need to ask if our students will be affected by their teachers, because they will. What we need to ask is how they will be affected during this formative phase of their lives. At LuHi, our teachers demonstrate ten exemplary traits that positively impact our students for life.

After a student makes it through middle school, sometimes all the parent hopes is for their child to survive high school. But LuHi has a greater vision. “If we put students in the right environment surrounded by the right people where culture matters and Christian worldview is taught, God will work through them,” says Executive Director Dan Gehrke. “I’m amazed at their faiths and I’m amazed at what they accomplish.”
