Beautiful Saviour Lutheran Elementary School5

Our four children started at OBS this school year and we have been very happy. They moved two of our children a grade higher in math based on testing at the beginning of the year. The math instruction is very strong and our oldest child went from a D to an A in spelling in one quarter. The teachers are also the coaches in volleyball, flag football and basketball at no extra cost. There are very reasonable after-school programs in Art and Spanish. Piano lessons are also available during the school day at affordable rates. Our children are relieved that they no longer have to keep their faith to themselves at school. The required, weekly "memory work" of Bible verses and hymns, aside from instructing them in their Christian faith, has helped every aspect of their academic progress as well. The mixed grades foster respect among the children regardless of age or grade. The older students often mentor younger ones. If a child fails to complete an assignment or does not do her homework, she must spend recess completing the work. The kids have access to computers and ipads and are rewarded with educational but fun game apps when their work is completed.
When I was searching for a private school for my child, I sought one that offered both reasonable tuition, as well as individualized attention to meet my daughter s specific needs. My daughter s preschool teacher recommended Beautiful Saviour. Tuition of $4,000 and a class of less than 10 students certainly caught my attention. That, combined with it being a Christian school, seemed to be an ideal situation for us. In the years that my daughter has spent at Beautiful Saviour, she has grown tremendously. My daughter s teacher expects great things from the children and treats them accordingly. The children are looked at as individuals with their own personal and academic challenges that both the parents and teachers work together with the children to overcome. I feel blessed that my child is able to spend this impressionable time in her life in such a caring environment!
Both of our children have attended Beautiful Savior since Kindergarten. They are both doing well as students and growing into great young Christian people. The school has done a great job of instilling in the kids a great work ethic, respect for others, and a true sense of belonging. The sports program is inclusive of tuition, there is tutoring and Hot Lunch available each Wednesday. The teachers and church are truly a committed group of people that have made a wonderful difference in the students lives.
Wonderful learning environment for the kids. The staff and teachers are amazing instructors. Small class sizes provides for more one on one attention and better for kids to excel. An extremely friendly and pleasant atmosphere.
