My son is currently in Kindgergarten at Our Savior. He receives instruction in a very nurturing setting. I have already noticed a big improvement in his ability to identify and write letters, and it is only the third week of school. I was impressed by the number of parents involved in the PTO meeting this week as well as the positive atmosphere. I really feel my son is learning the basics of reading in a loving, Christ-centered atmosphere.

The level of commitment to a well-balanced and rounded education has surpassed my expectations. As a nationally ranked school, the curriculum & structure goes beyond just day care. For example, when my daughter turned two, she knew ahere alphabet, could count to 10 in english & spanish, and knew primary colors in english & spanish. At 3 years, she does well enough on her own at the computer, turns it on and uses the mouse to navigate. I highly recommend this school for anyone who wants the extra care, guidance & attention for their children.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
