At Garden Homes Lutheran School we want to have the opportunity to educate our students inside and outside of the classroom. We provide many extracurricular activities to accomplish this. We believe these activities give the students to build their knowledge, learn new things, build leadership, understand team principles, and have fun doing activities they like. GHLS provides academic, athletic, and fine art opportunities.
