Welcome to Illinois Lutheran Elementary School! Our goal at ILES is to educate the whole student academically, spiritually and physically. It is our privilege to currently have over 200 students enrolled in our preschool through 6th grade classes. For nearly a century we have provided Christ-centered education for children of the south Chicago suburbs, serving as an extension of the home and a partner with the church in providing Christian education.

Meet Mr. Scott Sievert, Elementary School Principal

Mr. Sievert is a 1983 graduate of Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. He has been a principal for 31 years and for the last seven years at Illinois Lutheran Elementary School. As a servant-leader, he encourages the faculty members to grow in their educational techniques and professionalism while also growing their faith and service to the Lord.

Mr. Sievert says, “I am honored to serve here. As we share God’s Word with our students and families, I am inspired by God’s grace. I am amazed how each of us grows in our personal faith as we hear and learn God’s Word.”
