Small but loving environment. The teachers are all so kind. It really is a family Christ centered environment. My child has learned so much in such a short time and I'm looking forward to many more years here.

My husband and I love Resurrection Lutheran School. Two of our children attended preschool there for two years each and our youngest is starting preschool there this year. The school provides a very warm and nurturing environment. Our children learned the same skills, information, etc. that our oldest child learned in first grade at a different school. Resurrection is also very flexible and accomodating of parents' schedules. I definitely recommend Resurrection to anyone who is looking for a caring, safe and happy learning environment for their child(ren).

A warm, loving, Christian environment with strong academics and small classes.

I transferred my 3yr old from a local daycare to RLS six months ago. Although he doesn't usually adapt well to change, he immediately fell in love with this school. It is an organized, disciplined and structured environment. His teacher and the director have gone out of their way to make him feel welcome. He has learned quite a bit and looks forward to school everyday. They provide nutritious meals and plenty of physical activity. He loves it and I am able to go to work knowing he's in a caring and loving environment.

My daughter started at RLS when she turned two and half. Needless to say she is now turning 8 years old and her brother has since joined her at RLS. The staff has been absolutely wonderful to my children. They are flexible, understanding, and willing to work with you and your children. I have sought the Director's advice on more than one occasion. She is a wonderful person. I admire all the staff for their dedication to the children as well as the parents. I would recommend this school to anyone that is interested in their child(ren) getting a quality, religious based education. We are forever grateful to this school for the rock solid foundation they have provided to my children. Grateful parents of two RLS students

My daughter started going there over summer of 2008 for the summer camp after she turned 3. She did not like the chaos of older and younger kids mixed together, but she now loves her class with the other three year olds. It's like preschool, not just a daycare. The fees are reasonable, and she goes 3 half days a week right now. She has learnt so much. The alphabet, shapes, numbers, and so many crafts. I love how they incorporate christian principles, and sing, and she's really blossomed. They have a christmas play too, and she loved doing that. She really misses when it's not school over holidays and I think she'll love going 5 days a week once she starts school for 4 year olds in sept 09. There's only 12-13 kids in a class with a teacher and teacher's assistant, and not all the kids come all 5 days.

When we arrived 3 years ago, I looked at 4 pre-schools. After visits and careful consideration, I decided on Resurrection Lutheran. I have not been disappointed. My 5 year old in pre-K is starting to read. My second child started his school career when he turned 2 and was potty trained. He has loved it too. Reasons for my choosing and staying with RLS: - Great teachers, especially the school director who is dedicated to the children beyond words. -Friendly staff - Very reasonable tuition - Flexible pre-K schedule (choice between 2 days, 3 days or 5 days a week) - Before and after school care available FT or as needed by the parents. Pay as you go. School hours 6 am to 6 pm. - Small number of children. - Expanding school: adding one grade every year from pre-K 2.5 to 5th grade.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
