Learning runs far beyond standardized tests through experiential learning in labs, academic competitions, and hands on studies. Outside of academics, 5-8th grade students are invited to participate in our athletic program, Academic Team, Math Team, Robotics, Band, and more. Eighth grade students lead small group Bible study each month with the help of a seventh grader in Green Park’s Faith Families. Fifth grade students are chapel buddies to kindergarteners modeling worship and leading. Middle schoolers are matched with a reading buddy for kindergarten and first grade classrooms.

From Field Day and National Lutheran Schools Week to sixth grade at Camp Wartburg, Green Park is full of tradition and leadership training. As any Viking alum what made their experience at Green Park so great? It’s sure to center around faith formation, friends, and memories. Each fall sixth graders enjoy a trip to Camp Wartburg. It’s a rite of passage, a lesson in trust, a reaffirmation of faith, a strengthening of friendships, team building, and plenty of tradition.

How we’re different:

  • Middle school leadership opportunities.
  • Extended time devoted to Literature & Writing. While many schools group Literature, Vocabulary, English, and Writing into one class period, we’ve devoted two.
    Extensive use of the Science Lab. Love Science but blossom in a hands-on setting? You’d love Green Park. Plenty of time in the lab, field trips, even Science Fair projects done right.
  • Excellence in Math. It’s not secret, our 35+ year Math veteran is the best in town. Mr. Wayne Hesse is the recipient of the Emerson Excellence in Teaching and renowned for his success in making middle schoolers understand and enjoy his favorite subject. One year 22 of 29 eighth graders scored in the 90th percentile and higher on the ACT EXPLORE test. His response? “It’s a good group of kids.”
  • Big fish in a small pond… isn’t adolescence the perfect time to feel this way?
  • Green Park is unique in that we’re a freestanding school not on a church campus. Instead of all the same people all the time, we bring families from lots of various churches in the area. Some not at all. It’s in your time, not ours.
  • Sports. Some years we’re great, some years we’re learning.  It’s part of the joy in being on a school team and one of the best memory makers.
