Mr. John Maxwell joined our faculty in July 2017 as principal. He graduated from Concordia Teachers College (now called Concordia University-Nebraska) with a BS in Education with a major in political science and a minor in psychology. He taught for one year as a 5-6th grade teacher at St. Paul Lutheran School in Harlingen, Texas. He then worked for the Boy Scouts of America for 35 years before retiring. He served in Corpus Christi, TX, as Assistant Scout Executive in Houston, TX, as scout executive and CEO of Minsi Trails Council in Lehigh Valley, PA, as scout executive and CEO in Baltimore, MD, and Director of Scouting in Washington, DC. After a brief retirement, he reentered the educational ministry of the Lutheran Church as Principal of Our Savior Lutheran School in Arlington, VA. Mr. Maxwell believes God has given each child his or her own unique talents and abilities. He feels it is his responsibility to work with the faculty and staff to assist students in determining the learning strategies that will allow them to reach their highest potential. It is his hope that our school will build personal character through a Christ-centered education in a nurturing environment.
