Not sure about the last review as this person is completely wrong about Loving Savior. This school is a gem. They place so much emphasis on education and pouring money into the school, and staying on top of the newest curriculum. In terms of teachers, they are wonderful. As misinformed as the last person was, it is mandatory that the teachers have a credential at this school because I asked. Plus, look at the teacher's profiles. In fact, a lot of the teachers have a master's degree in education, the principal has two master's degrees. These teachers and administration are well educated. My children have excelled at this school. In fact, one of my children is in high school and is doing awesome. He is in the top 2% in his class. This is due to the strong foundation he received at Loving Savior. His English teacher even asked him who his teacher was in junior high since he wrote so well. I would highly recommend this school. It is ran very well, and the principal is wonderful and holds the teachers accountable. I guess you can't please everyone.

Loving savior is a horrible school. All they care about is money they don't care about the kids education. My child fell behind in her education lower than the standard public school level. I had to pay thousands in tutoring to get her back on track. The teachers are not very educated. its not a requirement for each teacher to have a teacher's credential so beware you might be paying $800 a month in tuition for this school but it won't benefit your child it would just cause them to fall behind in their education. Not a good 3 years experience for us.

The school provides a great education in a small Christian environment. The class sizes are much smaller than public school.

Loving Savior is an awesome school. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The principal is very responsive and loves all of the students. She truly is a blessing to the school and makes Loving Savior a top-ranked school.

Awesome school. I've worked as a day care teacher, substitute teacher and now my niece is attending. LOVE this school.

My children and I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at this school. Mrs. Wend is the most incredible principal. Not only does she know every child by name she knows many things about each student. The small environment is such a gift for our children. The open door policy allows me to be hands on in their education I speak to their teachers everyday. The parent involvement and the PTA create a wonderful atmosphere. I appreciate all the extras we get at this school.

Below average overall. It's a hit and miss depend on what teachers you get. First half of my daughter's pre-school were nice, but then second half, tthey changed teacher, maybe have something to do with school saving money, so whoever is willing to take the lowest salary will teach (something like that). Teachers had the music going while kids suppose to take nap, and when questioned by parents, they said it's good for kids to calm down...(I don't mean classical or hymn music, I mean it's more like fast beat rock....) Director and secretary in the office don't care when brought to their attention....This was couple years ago...I hope things have changed......

This school is bad memories for me and my kids. Staff unfriendly to parents and staff don't tell to parents about important policies. Staff and the Director don't greeting and go down to see her parents or students. I've never seen them smiling. Do not want to recommend this school.

It's bad school, Director and secretary are not kind. Sometimes they are rude. They don't usually say hello, One day I donated money they were greeting only that time. Teachers are so so.

I am a past student of this school. I am currently a senior in high school. I have been very successful academically in high school. I am graduating with a 4.4 G.P.A. Loving Savior completely prepared me for high school, not only academically, but spiritually as well. I would not have been as prepared for high school if I went somewhere other than Loving Savior. My favorite teacher, Mrs. Wend, is now the principal. They could not have made a better choice. She is fair,tough, funny, sports fanatic (one downfall-she is a Cowboy fan) but loving. She is always willing to go the extra mile for all of the students. I know the kids in the classroom miss her, but I know she is better well served as the principal. If you want a school that prepares you for your future, go to Loving Savior. I want to be a surgeon for my career, and I owe my desire and motivation to Loving Savior because they prepared me for my future. The teachers push you to be the best and not settle for mediocre. Go Loving Savior!

My son has thrived at this school. The curriculum is unbelievable. We since had to take him out to save money and send him to public. My goodness what a difference that was. All the teachers are great and the principal Mrs. Page, is wonderful. The spiritual environment and the positive teachers and parents, make this a great place to bring your children.

Excellent curriculum and great staff. My children have attended here for 5 years and we are very pleased.

Loving Savior of the Hills provides an excellent education for our children as well as a wonderful spiritual foundation . Mrs. Page is a wonderful principal whose door is always open. The parents are very involved in the school, and are always encouraged to become involved. I am very happy with the school and all it has to offer.

This is an excellent school. It is obvious that teachers and staff members are there for the purpose of enriching the children's education. They seem to have a 'multi-dimisional approach' to aiding in the development of their students [and sometimes parents too!]. I am very satisfied and confident that I selected a great environment in which my children can grow and learn.

We are thrilled with the education our 1st grader is receiving from LSOTH. Several friends and relatives have recently commented on how well she is reading. The teachers are professional, the principal is friendly and approachable, and the campus is beautiful. Representatives from WASC recently visited, and we hope the school will be able to announce its accreditation very soon.

I am a current 8th grader here at Loving Savior. Ever since i first started attending this school i have loved it. I don't absolutely love uniforms but I've grown accustomed to them. L.S. has had a very large impact on me, my study habits, the kind of student i have become, & how i feel socially. This school has helped me grow unlike my prior public school. i love L.S. and encourage more kids to be enrolled here. ~lgfl~

I am a student at Loving Savior and I love this school! I have built such great relationships here with the other students. Our teachers are awesome, especially Mrs. Wend and Mrs. Hottinger. They are always pushing us to do our best. Mrs. Wend is my favorite because she's nice and always has something encouraging and funny to say. And Mrs. Rowley's just awesome! Go to Loving Savior or else!
