Foundations for Faith and Career

ZSJ is the best start for a child both spiritually and academically! It laid the foundation for both the faith and career I have today. It’s filled with a staff that is fun and loving who will care about your student for life!

Like having a second family...

Being part of the Zion St John school was like having a second family. The smaller classroom provided more opportunities to get to know everyone, including the teachers, on a more personal level. Having this level of comfort helped me to open up and be active in the classroom. My favorite part of Zion was being able to study and learn more about God and His plan for all of us. In our classes we were able to talk about how Gods hands are involved in our lives and see how God could be incorporated into real life events, which has translated into life long learning traits.

My most influential years

Out of all my school-years I can confidently say that my most influential years were spent at Zion St. John in Paullina. The nurture I received in both academics and Christianity has stuck with me to this day.

A special place in my heart

Zion St. John Lutheran School will always have a special place in my heart. I am forever grateful for values that have been instilled in me such as unconditional love and kindness, honesty, hard work, respect for others, cooperation, compassion, and forgiveness. The lessons I've learned and the friendships I've made are life long. Zion is so much more than a school building or a community of faith, it is my home and my family.
