Both my children have attended OSLS and loved it. We believe OSLS has an amazing mix of the right things that help children learn, grow to be good citizens and strong compassionate people. We think Our Savior is a great place to send children.

Great academics and caring teachers! Low student to teacher ratio and emphasis on technology. All three of our children attended OSLS from 3 yr. old preschool through 8th grade. They were very well prepared for high school, especially in making wise social choices. What a relief to know that there is school of OSLS caliber in the East Bay area!

I love Our Savior Lutheran School because the teachers and staff offer personal attentive care to each student. There is truly a family atmosphere among the students as well as the parents. My children appreciated the ability to have daily prayer and regular chapel time.

It is a Christian environment with smaller class sizes and with the academic excellence that comes with being an fully Accredited school. Children and parents get that extra and personal attention not provided at many other schools.

The school is wonderful, all the staff really teach the children with care and understanding. My children have attended the school for 9 years. I have never had my children complainabout going to school they loved going . They liked all their teachers. My children also are very well rounded and have a great outlook on school and life . I fill that between the school & home both have played an important part in the devlopment of good character. It was the best investment I have ever made in a possitive way for my children.

My kids excelled at this school! They have since moved on to high school, but they were well prepared when they moved on. As a parent, I very much appreciated how much the faculty cared for my children.

Our Savior has upgraded its technology offering to be state of the art. They are integrating the computers into their pedagogy. It will be awesome.

From my personal observations and work with the administration, Our Savior Lutheran School is a 'gem' in the Livermore Valley Community. With lots of space for creativity, the school is an open and warm enviornment that lives into its mission. What I noticed about the students , teachers and famlies is a real since of purpose ad commitment to learnig. If you are looking for an academically challeging and spirituallly vigerous school for family, OSLS would be a 'thankful choice.'

Posted October 14, 2009

I love the fact that the students are prayed for, cared for, challenged academically, and strengthened in their faith in Jesus.

Our Savior has a strong core curriculum as well as all the extras! Music, art, P.E., foreign language, religion and computers are part of their weekly schedule. There are also after school sports and music programs!

OSLS is a school where students, families and staff really have the ability to connect and form real, lasting relationships based on Christ and genuine love/respect for each other!
