Abidng Savior Lutheran is like a second home. The parents, staff and the children make it a joy to get up every morning for school. When a parent comes to tell you that their child is singing songs you taught them or telling others that Jesus loves them, it is a humbling experience but one that tells me I am doing God's work and sharing his love and Word.

Abiding Savior is an awesome school. There is a great feeling of community with smaller classroom sizes and academic excellence! I wouldn't send my children anywhere else.

We have two children attending ASLS. We are very pleased with the teachers and administration. The academic standards are high and challenging, but the benefit is clear based test scores and overall performance. We are confident our kids will come out of ASLS with an edge over others in leadership and base knowledge. In addition, while there they are learning good morals and values through a Christ centered education...something that helps enforce and compliment the behavioirs we teach them at home.

I can't be happier! The teachers are so caring from Kids Day Out up thru 8th grade. The teachers go the extra mile for each child. We love the small environment, the staff, the parent involvement opportunities, and the academics which are Christ centered.

We love Abiding Savior Lutheran School and could not imagine our children attending any other elementary school or preschool. Our kids are excelling in academics in a great school where they are loved and cared for everyday!!! Abiding Savior Lutheran School is family oriented with strong parent involvement, strong leadership from both school and church staff, and exceptional teachers. Our students are achieving educational excellence, while growing in their leadership development and a firm Christ centered education.

My daughter attended the early childhood program at Abiding Savior and went on to the elementary school too because we were so impressed by the school. My daughter loves it. We love the small environment, the staff, the parent involvement opportunities, and the academics which are Christ centered. I can't imagine sending her anywhere else.

For the past 10+ yrs, my son has attended Abiding Savior Lutheran School and our experience has been nothing short of outstanding! From day 1, we were welcomed and felt like part of the 'family' at ASLS. The teachers are exceptional in modeling their Christian values and show great dedication and passion for their careers and their students. The relationships that have been created between parents of our students is something very unique, too, unlike what I have come to believe from public schools. I feel very blessed to have been able to send my son to Abiding Savior!!!

Abiding Savior Lutheran School is incredible. My granddaughter has been attending since preschool and is now in seventh grade. The teachers and staff are always willing to help her when she needs their help. She has received an excellent education there. I am so happy that we decided to send her to Abiding Savior!!

My children graduated from Abiding Savior 3 and 5 years ago, after attending there preschool through eighth grade. We have never regretted one minute of our time there. Our children have excelled at the public high school and now college levels, and I truly believe it is because of the firm foundation in academics, values and Christ- centered education they received at Abiding Savior. We believe in the school so much we continue to support the school even though we don't have students there anymore.

My daughter just started there this year. She loves the staff and the teachers. We are very pleased as parents with the academics and the helpfulness of all that are involved in my daughters education. The staff is very helpful and knows who you are once you walk in the door, they are very genuine about the success of the students. They offer a great Christian education, I would recommend anyone here that is looking for a GREAT christian education.

Best decision I've ever made. I'm a college educator and wish every school had this degree of dedication to both academics and character.

We are very satisfied with everything about this school. The academics are well above average. The faculty have advanced degrees and many years of experience. Even the Early Childhood teachers have education degrees. The school is big enough to have the necessary extras such as sports, music, foreign language, and arts. But is small enough that every teacher knows every student, K-8, and cares deeply about their success. Our kids love it here and always want to go to school. The Christian education is definately worth every penny.

I couldn't be anymore happy with Abiding Savior. It is such a peace of mind for me to be able to send my daughter off everyday to such a safe and loving facility. They instill great morals and values at a young age. It is a very small family like feel. The teachers LOVE their children and it shows! I wouldn't want my child to be anywhere else!

Abiding Savior is a Christian school that cares about its students and living the love of Christ. Our family has been involved with the school for over 14 years and our youngest is now in the 3rd grade. If you want a place where the education is top notch and the Word is still the foundation, then this is the school for you!

My daugher started pre-school just a few short weeks ago and already I feel as if we are a party of a large caring and supportive family. My child seems to thrive and is learning so much already. The staff and teachers are very supportive and communicative with us and really care about our child's well-being. From the moment we stepped into the school for a tour we knew that our child would be safe and treated with respect. We feel she has much guidance and attention with her teachers and other staff members. Most importantly, we knew that she would be taught values and morals. We highly recommend Abiding Savior Lutheran School.

ASLS offers an excellent Christian education. In addition to a great education, here you also get a warm, supportive, family atmosphere where your children know they are loved and the parents/ adults are too. Children are challenged and the environment is encouraging. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else. Also to note, it's a nut-free school. For me, that is fantastic because I have a child with an allergy and I can't imagine my child having to sit at a separate lunch table from peers or worry about what is fed to my child.

This is a wonderful school that provides a high-quality, Christian education to its many blessed students and families. In addition to high academic achievement, our caring and loving teachers and staff communicate on a regular basis the importance of spiritual growth and development to students and their families. This school has become my family's second home as I know it has to many others. It is well worth a visit, you will see for yourself the many benefits Abiding Savior has to offer!

The teachers at Abiding Savior are great! Their dedication to providing a loving productive environment is outstanding. My children love being there. I would say that if it weren't for the teachers my family would not be at Abiding. My experience with the schools office team is very poor. The two woman in the office foster negativity, and at times are unwilling to help when needed. I have experienced major accounting issues over the past few years. I am hopeful that with a new principal coming in this year, we will see the leadership our school so desperately needs.

My daugther, Olivia has attended this school since Kindergarten and this year is in 8th grade. We love the small family environment of the school. Everyone knows eachother and looks out for eachother. The Christian atmosphere is important to our family and gives the kids a wonderful foundation in morality, kindness and love. The curriculum is challenging and my daugher has been able to be greatly involved in sports, music, art and other extracurricular activities. She loves it here!

We used Abiding Savior's Early Childhood program for preschool for our daughter, and were thrilled with the staff and the program. There are a lot of preschool programs out there, but this one stands alone because of the teachers' credentials. Many of the have teaching degrees and even master's degrees. The rooms are warm and inviting with lots of activity centers and interesting activities for little people to enjoy. It was a wonderful experience!

This is my son's second year in Abiding Savior's ECM (early childhood ministry) preschool program, and we love ASLS! He's been very comfortable there from day one, the teachers are excellent and really enjoy the kids, and they incorporate new technology into their learning including iPads and SmartBoards. It's also a very involved community where the parents know what's going on, and they volunteer their time and talents to benefit the school. I love the small class sizes, and the knowledge that my son is getting a wonderful education in a supportive and challenging environment.

The parents are caddy and clicky, there are only a couple of good teachers the rest were only hired because they are good friends with the principal so they don't have to try to hard to do a good job of teaching. Some of the classrooms are over cramped with too many children.

My experience was very poor leadership and communication in this school from their school board, principal and some teachers. My three children attended the school for four years before moving to a public school. When entering the public school system all three children tested behind in math and reading. All three children are now showing improved scores. In my experience, the school board and principal did not follow the schools own handbook for policies and procedures.

The school is great. What I like most is the teachers. They are so dedicated to the kids both academically and spiritually. The kids are taught to live a Christian life. The school has smartboards in every room even early childhood now, and implementing spanish. The academic standards are incredible. The scores are routinely in top 10-20% nationally. Also offers well rounded opportunities for athletics and fine arts, including band. Parents are great too really support the school through volunteering and financial gifts. If you are looking for a church the school is affiliated with a wonderful church that reaches out to families.

I love ASLS - our son loves it, his teachers have been excellent and the parent/teacher/principal communication is fantastic. We wouldn't have our school in any other place and he will go there through 8th grade (currently in 1st grade). Money VERY well spent.

The academics are well rounded and challenging. Extracurricular activities in the fine arts such as music and drama are available as well as several sports programs. Most importantly is the atmosphere and dedication of the teachers. I love the way Christian principles are woven into many aspects of the entire day. My children are flourishing at this school.

Washington Lutheran is now called Abiding Savior Lutheran. The atmosphere is small and friendly. I love that they still offer a half day kindergarten option. The teachers are truly amazing. My children learn about Jesus and are challenged academically.
