Bethlehem Lutheran School Academics



Bethlehem Lutheran Church & School is dedicated to the best in education on all academic levels. This means that we strive for excellence in testing, homework, discipline, and grading.

Achievement Testing

Students at Bethlehem Lutheran School take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills at the end of February each year and always score above state norms.

Grade Reporting/Conferences

Official Parent-Teacher Conferences are held twice a year, in the fall and spring. However, parents can request a conference at anytime to discuss student progress or concerns and we encourage this personal interaction between teachers and parents.

Report Cards are issued four times a year and mid-term reports are issued half-way through each grading period. Additionally, grades are available on-line to parents at any time through TeacherEase.


Bethlehem Lutheran School is proud to offer academic support for our students using RtI. RtI stands for “Response to Intervention”.  It involves the systematic implementation of a research-based intervention for the child who struggles– and an evaluation of the child’s response to it.
