West Portal Lutheran School

of San Francisco

Quality, full-time Christian education as a ministry of West Portal Lutheran Church.

We have provided Christian Education for 68 years for grades K-8. We believe in challenging our students academically while providing a nurturing Christ-centered atmosphere emphasizing honesty and respect with a positive attitude.

Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.  Proverbs 22:6


In a challenging and inspiring Christian environment, West Portal Lutheran School exists to provide an exceptional academic experience for children in kindergarten through eighth grade. 

Looking back, I am very grateful to have attended West Portal Lutheran for K-8. It afforded me a solid, well-rounded foundation in those critical years. The teachers made all the difference; they don't just help students thrive, but excel.  I firmly believe in the school philosophy and have enrolled my children at WPL so they can receive the same positive experience.
