We have been back at it in a unique way at Lutheran High. In person classes are going well and we are excited to witness the success of distance learning in each classroom via Zoom. We know this has presented challenges for students and their families — their adaptability has been inspiring! We wanted to find out how our teachers were experiencing the changes in their own classrooms, so we sat down with Alicia Kidston (Dean of Women, English Teacher), Hannah Swafford (Social Studies Teacher), and David Black (Teacher, Director of Lights Academy). Each gave us a glimpse into the changes they’ve made to contribute to the success of their students.
Meet the newest staff members joining the LuHi family for the upcoming school year! We are excited to welcome five new full time teachers and two part time teachers.
Hey, incoming Freshman! We want to introduce you to some of the teachers you might have in class next year. Even if you don’t have them in class, you’re guaranteed to see their friendly faces around campus. We can’t wait to see you this August. Now, let’s meet some of your future teachers!
As our students and teachers welcome a fresh start in 2020, we say goodbye to the year 2019 and also to the decade. But did you know that Mr. David Ness is also celebrating his own decade as principal at LuHi? For the past ten years, Mr. Ness has been guiding us with his God-given wisdom and leadership skills through countless changes, challenges, growth opportunities and improvements. In celebration of his tenth year anniversary, he’s here to share some insights into his life and role here at LuHi.
Books spark lively conversations in Mrs. Robbins’ room, and this is largely due to an enlightening confession from the Freshman English teacher herself: “I was a reluctant reader in high school, like many of my students, which is why I love my job. I, too, can impact students and hopefully help them develop a love for literature that was not there before.”

More than likely you know a young person who struggles with mental illness. Today, mental health problems are diagnosed more frequently than heart disease, lung disease, and cancer combined.
