School Reviews

5.0  11/25/2016
My child transitioned seamlessly from the public school system to Our Redeemer. They helped us every step of the way! They truly DO care about every single child in attendance. My child has specific learning disabilities and I was hesitant at first with sending him to a private school. I was always under the impression that the appropriate services for him would be lacking and that we would be back to square one. My concerns were totally unfounded. Lutheran Special Schools Services at ORLS have exceeded my expectations. My child is currently enrolled in fifth grade at ORLS. I am ECSTATIC to report that my child has gone from reading and writing at the first grade level in the public school to fourth grade level within one school year. Also, his faith has exploded which is important to me. Three more reasons I would recommend this learning institution: The class sizes are small with very low student to teacher ratios. They maintain a strict adherence to their anti-bullying policies. Extremely open lines of communication between Administration/Faculty and families. I cannot recommend this school highly enough!
