I attended Redeemer for 11 years. The education was AMAZING! The 7th grade lit class changed my life and set me on a course to graduate from high school with 45 college credit hours, because that class gave me the foundation to think deeply about myself and others, which would later put me on a path to pursuing my passions (balanced with wisdom of course). Now I am married and have an infant. When it is time for him to attend pre-school you can bet that he will be attending Redeemer!

RLS has been such a amazing experience for my two children. The teachers LOVE these children as if they were their own. Last year was hard, one of our children was diagnosed with a learning disability but the staff at RLS helped us and stood by our side to help figure out every step we needed to take. Now I'm happy to say, that same child is now excelling beyond belief and it is all due to the love and support of the teachers and staff. God is the center of all things at RLS and it shows! They go above and beyond in every aspect!

We have two kids at Redeemer, and we have had an amazing experience! The kids learn so much--not just academics, but about love, character and God. So glad we found Redeemer, and my kids have had such a good start to life!

Redeemer Lutheran is an extraordinary environment to challenge and support academic, intellectual, social, and spiritual growth of Pre-K through 8th grade students. The teachers and staff encourage and genuinely care for not only the students, but for their families as well.

We have been at Redeemer for six years and absolutely love it. Although the academics are outstanding and the students get a variety of experiences each day including science, PE, music, art, technology, and Spanish, the main reason we love her Redeemer is the sense of community we feel here. The teachers genuinely care about their students.

My child has been at Redeemer for the past 2 years and loves it! Everyone was so welcoming and made her feel right at home. She looks forward to school and loves the small, community feel it has. I love the idea that she can stay in the same school through 8th grade. They are building a new private high school so may keep her with her friends and stay through high school. So happy we found this school!

The school is amazing. My son hates to miss a day of school. We have the academics are grat and they also focus on having well rounded children. I would highly recommend especially if your child has speech or other issues because they are very open. Parents are great too. Ask for a tour!!!

Redeemer is an excellent place to receive a quality education for your child. My family is very impressed with: Teacher involvement, parent support of the students and the overall knowledge my child gains each day.

My kids love Redeemer Lutheran School. We have attended preschool, elementary, and middle school and have been very happy with the teachers, curriculum, and the loving Christian environment. In my experience with public school, and this private school, I would hands down pick this private school. I know a few families that left Redeemer to go to public schools and they came back to Redeemer because you just can't beat the education they get at this school.

My daughter has attended Redeemer for middle school and we have been very pleased with both the academic rigor and the caring atmosphere at the school. The teachers and administration take a genuine interest in the students as individuals and there is healthy collaboration among teachers. My daughter had lost interest in reading prior to attending Redeemer. Now she loves to read and has even mentioned an interest in becoming a librarian.

Poor school. The principal is very immature and not objective. Sad for the teachers who do try.

There is a major problem with bullying at this school that has driven several families away. The principal refuses to step in when the teacher won't handle it. There are teachers who are not qualified to teach, and very little has been done about it. Academics are average. Three families I know who left due to bullying issues at the school are thrilled with their public school choices.

Some teachers are good but the bad ones are left to continue to teach there year after year. Eventhough their issues are brought to the principals attention.

My wife attended Redeemer and now our three children go there. Redeemer has perfected the balance between academic excellence and Christian character. I know that my children are being challenged academically while being loved and cherished. A true gem and a blessing to the community.

I have had my two boys at Redeemer for the past 4 years and we have been very happy. The campus is full of happy staff members, teachers who love your children, and parents who care. The playground is exceptional, the daily religion and the strong academics make Redeemer a great place for my boys and our family as a whole.

I have two elementary age children attending Redeemer. I am very happy with the education my children are receiving and the experiences they are having at school. I feel like they are safe and cared for, they are excited about learning and are exposed to so many unique opportunities for hands on learning. The outside areas of the campus are often used as a hands-on science classroom, community members such as authors, scientists and community workers are encouraged, and each year the children go on a wide variety of field trips from farms to landfills.

Redeemer has been a wonderful school for our daughter. The teachers truly care about the children as well as how they are doing academically. The communication between the teachers and parents is very open. It is money well spent!

My wife went to Redeemer when she was young. Now, we have 2 girls that have gone to Redeemer since they were 3 years old. Very affordable and the teachers are the best I''ve ever seen. There is so much sincere love in the school from the teachers, staff, and students! My daughters are smart and are of outstanding character, thanks in large part to their education at Redeemer. It's the best money I have ever spent on my children and I can't recommend it highly enough! You owe it to yourself and to your kids to tour Redeemer and see what it has to offer.

My grandchildren attend Redeemer Lutheran School and are excelling in many ways - educationally, spiritually and personally. I am so pleased to have grandchildren that know, understand and live for God. The school has a wonderful outdoor science education program where the children learn how to plant and care for all types of vegetation and the aviary gives first hand knowledge of birds. Grandparents Day is exciting for me and the students who like to 'show off' their grandparents. The musicals, the year end programs, and the special programs show the enthusiasm the students have for their school. I have met many of the teachers and administrators and find all possessing a sincere desire to teach. Bring your children to Redeemer for a firm foundation in Christianity and education!

The teachers reallyu care about your child! They care about everything from what might be troubling your child that day to writting letters of recomendation to colleges to ensure that your child has a better future. If your child will be a new student don't be afraid of the other kids thaey always make new students feel welcome and embrace them with open arms.

My child has attended Redeemer since the Preschool Program. He has blossomed under the care and guidence of the staff at Redeemer. Academically, he tests as advanced and I credit that to the educational programs of Redeemer. Redeemer provides a well-rounded grouping of extracurricular activities. Parental involvement is encouraged. I have personally participated in the classes each year and feel if I have a concern or a suggestion, I'm heard. I have 'say so' in my child's education.

Our daughter is thriving at Redeemer, and about to start 6th grade. We just found them last year 1 day before she was supposed to start school. A few years ago we moved to the ourskirts of town and we didn't like the school district we moved to. We decided to try a charter school which was ok but she didn't excel she just existed. Then we tried our regular school district which was the biggest mistake we made, she fell so far behind we weren't sure if she could catch up without repeating a grade. Redeemer welcomed us with loving arms and kept her in the correct grade. Our daughter enjoys school even with the struggles she has catching up. They are very affordable. They are a christian based school, but they have children from every religion attending. Redeemer is #1 in our book.

It is worth every dollar we spend for my son's education in here. The environment definitely helps my son grow more mature than he used to be. Extracurriar activities are great for my son to increase his physical endurance. The staffs are excellent to all students/parents. We are proud to be a part of Redeemer Lutheran's family.
