Governance

Metro-East Lutheran High School is supported by an Association of area churches of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Congregations offer financial and spiritual support, as well as nominating a member to serve on our Board of Directors. The Board also has up to four directors at large and two Pastoral Advisors.  Learn more about our association churches, directors, and the LCMS:

MELHS teacher

Students here at MELHS truly care. They want to learn, and they care about each other. And with the smaller class sizes, I am able to build meaningful relationships with my students.
