Enrollment at RBE has dropped dramatically this year. Shortly after school started, the principal and others were let go, "due to financial reasons." I think there is a lot more to this than meets the eye. Our family did not return this year due to bullying in the current 6th grade class. This behavior went unchecked the entire 5th grade year, even after LAPD visited the school. I had hoped my child would graduate from RBE, but it was not meant to be. Don't be fooled by the "Christian banner," a lot of the staff publicly ridicule the students and embarrass them. I didn't get a "What Would Jesus Do?" feel at the school last year, and from what I hear, since the passing of the beloved Mrs. Ridgeway, the sixth grade has loss its academic vigor, due to the immaturity of the current 6th grade teacher. If you are considering RBE take a very close look, and see if you can find a current family to speak to you candidly. Also, academically, be prepared to supplement. I think RBE was a gem... many years ago.
I'm a Nana to one of the most wonderful Redeemer Elementary School Students, A-III. This school is a perfect fit for him. The Common Core Curriculum is used at Reedemer to ensure my grandson gets the best education possible. The environment is a well balanced one and imagine a people friendly school. This iis is what I've observed a s a Nana to A-III, his daily experience is ...arrive at school, welcomed, enter his classroom into the well educated arms if a teacher who cares about your child, during school loved by all staff, even in the yard safety is first there, the students are well behaved...can you imagine? After school care... The Best...the school grounds are well kept, everything is always in working order... No work orders to put in...and Mrs. Carey, what an absolute Diamond... Just a wonderful school Administrator, and guess what she's always smiling. Do you know of another school such as... Redeemer Elemenrary School. Too good to be true? Why nor visit and experience how a school should be. School perfection! With Nana, for A-III, 4th
This school is AWESOME!! A loving, caring environment for my children and for our family. This school is safe for kids to be individuals, and supportive to develop age appropriate behaviors. This little secret is the jewel of west LA. And my kids are learning how to learn, how to perform and work to their potential and beyond.
This school is a best kept secret. However, what is keeping it from receiving 5 stars is the academics 4th-6th grade need to be stepped severely up. This issue does need to be addressed as I have had to supplement for Reading and Math Elsewhere to ensure my child is up to snuff.
WE THIS SCHOOL! The children are well cared for and the teachers appear to genuinely interested in the whole child. I love Friday's chapels. Children are exposed to multiple field trips and many different extra-curricular activities come to school making it convenient for the parents.
Two of my children have graduated from Redeemer over the past 13 years. We love Redeemer where every child is known by name, every child is prayed over every day, and every family is valued. Redeemer is not only a wonderful school academically but continues to require that the children demonstrate traditional wholesome values that are lacking in so many other schools. I am so glad we chose Redeemer for our children, they provided a solid foundation for their elementary education and made a lifetime impression in their hearts.
Although our family is not Baptist, Redeemer is an extraordinary school. After floundering at our local public school, we called Redeemer mid-year to see if our daughter could attend for a day to try it out. When I picked her up, she begged me to go back the next day and she has never looked back. Our daughter fell in love with Redeemer's loving, caring community. The school has one class per grade level and a tight-knit family atmosphere. The school has high academic standards with an equal emphasis on the spiritual and personal development of the children. Students hold doors open for adults and they are respectful and polite. Aculture of manners and kindness pervades the campus. Students are held accountable for their actions and bullying is not tolerated by anyone. It's a safe, loving environment and we are so grateful to have found this school. It is definitely THE BEST kept secret in Los Angeles. With an afforadble monthly tuition Redeemer is an option for almost any family. There are a few spaces available at each grade level so if your child in unhappy, give Redeemer a try for yourself!
I honestly cannot say enough GOOD things about Redeemer! My daughter is in the 5th grade and has been attending since the 2nd grade. Once again, I could spend the ENTIRE day raving about how wonderful the school is. In short, the teachers are WONDERFUL, AMAZING and HEAVEN sent. The teachers are TRULY passionate about their kids and it clearly shows in our children. You can clearly see and tell that the teachers are there because they have a passion for what they are doing - not for a paycheck. My daughter has been on honor roll (and high honor roll) for 2 years and I attribute a lot of that to the teachers. They make learning fun, yet they are stern in their teaching and their teaching and study habits. All of the teachers just just the right balance of fun and know how to balance being stern. My daughter doesn't want to miss a SINGLE day of school - EVER - even when there are holidays.
Redeemer is an amazing school. You can drop off your child and not only know that the education they are receiving is top of the line but also that every single person that works at the school trully loves and cares about your childs well being. Redeemer is an incredible!
My son and daughter attended and attend now, my nephew also goes there, this school is awesome and the teachers are great!
Redeemer students excel in high academic subjects as well as the students, and parents feel connected with the dynamic loving staff. The Staff truly go all the way for students positive school experience.
This is my Sons third year. This diverse Christian based school has been a Great blessing. Best kept secret for sure!!
Our family moved from New York and my son attended a private kindergarten there. I was very surprised how affordable RBE was. For what I get in return, I feel like I have struck gold. All of the teachers are there for one cause. They support and love the children. Its a safe environment and they will differentiate if you need them to. My son is 2 grade levels above and his teacher allows him to work on other tasks to enrich him. MY son and I VERY happy. Lastly, the other parents are NON pretentious. Its like one big happy family!
Redeemer is the best kept secret on the Westside! Redeemer is a school where students, teachers and parents are all truly involved n the success of the student. Take a momet and tour this amazing group of educated, loving, and joyful students. You know when you pick up your child and they beg you not to go home you have made the rightdecision as a parent!
Redeemer is such an amazing school. It s hard to believe that in today s society, schools like Redeemer still exist. It has a warm family like feel to it. All of the teachers, staff and parents know each other, and are all so friendly. The teachers and staff at Redeemer have a way of making each child feel special and loved. Your child will definitely excel both spiritually and academically at Redeemer.
It's a great school spiritually. The 1st grade, the 6th grade teachers are extraordinary. The student's love the 3rd and 4th grade teacher as well. I just wish they were stronger in the areas of Science and Writing Skills. A foreign language would also be nice
This will be my daughters 3rd year at R.B.E. We love it and we've told our friends about it.My younger daughter will be joining her this year. This school is heaven sent and worth the money and worth a visit, so you too can feel the love.
Yes Redeemer is the best school my children have ever attended. I only wish they continued on to the 12th grade level. There are no schools comparable to what Redeemer provides.
I love this school! It's difficult to express how great it is. My daughter has grown tremendously here-spiritually, academically and socially. When your're kids are safe and happy and learning you're happy. And I am very happy!
