Our Kindergarten student struggled with reading early on, but the dedicated efforts of her teachers and the encouragement of volunteer readers (they were AWESOME!) helped her to blossom as a second grade reader. She was the first in her second grade class to earn 100 Accelerated Reader points in a quarter!

I am a parent of two boys. My oldest graduated from Our Savior last year and is now doing very well in High School. My youngest is still in elementary school at OSLS. Both my wife and I attended public school in Missouri where we grew up, so we never dreamed we would have kids in private school. We absolutely could not be happier with the quality education and Christian Foundation that are boys have received at Our Savior. Compared to other private schools, it is also more affordable. I would highly recommend this school.

As an alumni I know this school well. I graduated in 94 and was in 5th grade when the school was built. Some teachers there were my teachers. While principals have come and gone the Christ based education and attentiveness from teachers hasn't changed. I wouldn't send my children to any other school. I now have two that proudly attend. Christ based education is a must in this day and age. I am impressed with the curriculum and the great education! Smart boards in every class...classes are just small enough for that one on one guidance. This school is one my dad attended back before it changed locations. It has a history of having great leaders! Wonderful school all around!!

Our Savior Lutheran School is Louisville's best kept secret! The environment within the school is Christ-based, friendly, and family oriented. The teachers challenge each student to do their best, while meeting the individual needs of students. The principal makes every effort to improve the quality of the school, while listening and answering questions from parents and students. The school community includes active, involved parents who not only support the teachers and principal, but they volunteer to provide numerous opportunities for families to grow together! I'm blessed to be able to send my children to a school that values a Christian education, as well assisting in the strengthening and building of my family's traditional values!

Our Savior Lutheran School strives to "teach toward tomorrow while building families in Christ'. The veteran staff work to make learning a worthwhile journey for everyone. In this my 9th year on staff and 12th year as a parent, I know I wouldn't want my family to be any other place. 'Come and See' what we have to offer. Many parents leave referring to us as the 'best kept secret' in Louisville. Help us spread the secret.

OSLS is an excellent school! The principal knows every child by name! My child struggled at his previous school. Our Savior teachers cared about my child and helped him to become a child who actually wanted to come to school! I am so thankful for the commitment and the ministry of the school and its teachers.

The concept of a three way partnership is an important part of the way most parochial schools work. Unfortunately, over the years I have seen a decline in communication with the staff and parents at Our Savior Lutheran School. Typically with a smaller class size the teachers should be able to address that learning issue on the spot, rather than waiting weeks or months to fix it. Most parents want their children to have as much personal attention as possible. I'm finding the teachers are not taking the time to work through the struggles nor involving the parents.

Even though the class sizes are small the school is lacking a personal approach. Teachers and staff should spend time with the students not texting during the day.

I have two children attending Our Savior and am impressed with the entire faculty and staff. The school has made technological advancements by adding smart boards in every class room. For the middle school children, tablet computers have been introduced which interact with the smart boards. The curriculum is top-notch and the music program, as well as the teacher, are amazing. We are blessed to have our children in this loving, Christian atmosphere.

I have have one at Our Savior now and another one that has moved on to Trinity. I am so very pleased with both their education. My oldest was completely ready for the AP program at Trinity and is now a Junior. He will be very ready to attend college after his Senior year and I believe it is because of the great foundation he received at Our Savior. My youngest will be there for a few more years and I am very much looking forward to watching him continue to excel as well. The teachers are very caring and concerned about each of the children. We still receive "Birthday Cards" and "Good Luck this coming Year" cards from my oldest boys teacher. Even though he is now a Junior he still gets a smile on his face when he gets these in the mail. Not only is the education top notch but the staff that presents the material I can not say enough great things about them all. Teachers make an at home visit before the start of the school year to each child so that they can meet their teacher in what is their comfort zone. I would recommend this school to anyone entering pre-school or those just beginning to enter the middle school years. Wonderful and caring Principal and staff!!!

Our kids have attended Our Savior Lutheran School since preschool (now they are in 3rd and 6th grade). The christ-centered education is wonderful, and all the teachers are very caring and good at their jobs. We love it!

If you want a school where your child knows everyone, your teacher sends you (the parent) a birthday card and the principle is available to meet you when you walk in without an appointment - this is the school for you. I was concerned about my son's ability to succeed when he started Kindergarten and the small class size and individual attention is what brought us to OSLS. Now my son is getting straight A's and has developed into a child that can handle almost any challenge he is given.

Our two children are at Our Savior and we couldn't be happier. It is a small environment and all of the teachers become familiar with all of the families. We have only been there a short time but I wish that we had spent all of our elementary years there.

My son has had a fabulous experience so far in the past three years he has been at Our Savior. The atmosphere is welcoming and his teachers continue to demonstrate their care and love for him in many different ways. If you want a caring, Christian, academically-challenging environment, then Our Savior is the right place for your children.

As much as we loved the school, we also thought there should be more discipline in the middle school grades- mostly the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes of the 08-09 school year. our children went there four years and loved it except for some of the childrens' attitudes in these grade levels. Thanks OSLS for everything you did to prepare our children to a new higher academic school!

I love Our Savior! I graduated about two years ago, and I can't begin to say how much going there has helped me. I was well prepared for high school, I had made friends to last a life time, and I have grown in my faith.

My child loves school, teacher, and the principal. I always feel welcome when I enter the school, and I'm always kept involved. The school always has fun activities that make my child look forward to the next day. It has tremendous involvement by the parents too. We found it easy and quick to meet new friends. This all helps create a since of pride and ownership in the school that provides support to the administration to ensure that it keeps it high academic standards. I can only think of one short coming which is the lack of sports/PE, it does have some but that is the only area of improvement I can site. I know I am not the only mom who feels so satisfied after dropping my son off that he is in a caring, safe environment, getting an excellent education and that we have made an excellent choice.

I graduated from OSLS about 2 years ago. I attended the school since PK and I loved it. The thing I remember most was 6-8th grade because of the excellent teachers. They prepared me really well for high school. My favorite teacher was and still is Mr.Schultz, the 8th grade teacher/math/history/pe. He is an excellent math teacher and once in high school the algebra came as a breeze. He prepares you really well. The whole school does.

We had tried 2 other private schools (KCD and Christian Academy) in the Louisville area and found Our Savior Lutheran School to be superior in all facets of our childs' education. They provide a challenging core curriculum complemented by Spanish, Computer and Music classes. The special part about this program is the nurturing environment that encourages all children to be the best they possibly can, to be proud of their individual accomplishments, and to love the learning process. We are so thankful we discovered the best kept secret in Louisville's education system... Our Savior's Lutheran School!

We have had all four of our children attend this wonderful school from preschool through the eighth grade. The foundation they received at Our Savior in the education of both the heart and the mind has been very evident. The principal of the Christian high school they later attended calls Our Savior 'the Rock', because of the academic capabilities and spiritual maturity their graduates bring with them. The quality of the faculty is excellent, and the programs are top-notch. This school gives tremendous value for the dollar.

Two of our daughters attend Our Savior, and we intend to send our younger two children there as well. This school has the most caring, supportive atmosphere of any we have encountered. The teachers are top notch, and Christian behavior is genuinely modeled and expected. Pre-K through Grade 3 have kind, encouraging, nurturing teachers. Academics become quite rigorous at the fourth grade level. The middle school is fantastic, with a phenomenal math teacher. He has brought our daughter from being a struggling math student to participating in the Duke TIPS program. We also have an excellent computer/technology program. It's a great school. Come and see!
