School Notes

  • MISSION & VISION: Our mission is simple.  Love Jesus.  Love Learning. Love Others. 
  • CORE VALUES: Christ-Centered Learning to support foundational moral compass.Whole Child Development (Spirit, Intellectual, Physical, Emotional, and Social).Academic Excellence for high school, college and real-world preparation.Loving Relationships within a Loving Environment by a Loving Staff.Encouraging enrichment of individualized God given gifts within each child.Unique and Individualization attention for children.  
  • EDUCATIONAL VALUES:  Redeemer Lutheran School is distinctively different from other schools.  These are some things that distinguish us from most schools and how we apply our mission: 
  • LOVE JESUS. Knowing Jesus Christ as a loving Savior and recognizing the importance of forgiveness and grace for all is the most important life lesson we can pass on to our students.  Learn more about Spiritual Life and Statement of Faith here. 
  • LOVE LEARNING. We know play is vital to a child`s development. We partnered with The University of Texas for 32 years to research the benefits of play.  Our 3 age-appropriate state-of-the-art playgrounds attest to that belief.Academic rigors and key to student success in the 21st century.Daily physical education stimulates the brain andpositively affects life-long health and well-being.  The American Diabetes Association finds that less than 4% of elementary students have daily physical education.Music is fundamental for children`s growth and development.  Music helps develop higher thinking skills, better coordination, and improves children`s ability to work with math and science.   Our elementary students have music classes twice a week, as well as choir instruction.  Band and choir electives are also offered in middle school.Reading is a readiness issue.  Children will blossom when they are ready to read, and together with our reading resource teacher, we work with students at their various stages of development. Spanish is a necessary language in Texas.  Age-appropriate Spanish curriculum begins with our 2-year-olds and culminates with a High School Spanish I credit when they complete 8thgrade.Competition is good for boys and girls to prepare them for life. Our students have the opportunity to participate in athletic, academic, and fine arts competitions.Education should be experiential.  We bring the world to our students through interactive participation through SMART Boards in all rooms.  Our students go out into the world to learn by taking field trips, including overnight trips in 5th-8thgrades.Environmental education is a key component of our science curriculum. Our nationally recognized nature and hydroponic gardens provide children a hands-on opportunity to care for and respect the environment.   
  • LOVE OTHERS. Respect and care for others is an attribute we aspire to develop in each student.  Opportunities for children to learn and practice caring for others are integrally woven throughout a child`s time at RLS by encouraging regular donations to charities supporting a variety of needs, and with activities such as growing herbs for the Meals on Wheels Program, working with the school for the blind, and connecting with the Fikisha Street Ministry in Kenya. 
  • THEME FOR 2016-2017: RESCUED. I trust your love, and I feel like celebrating because you rescued me. Psalm 13:5  
  • NOTICE OF NONDISCRIMINATION CLAUSE: Redeemer Lutheran School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, or religious affiliation, to all rights, privileges, programs and activities available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, creed, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its education policies, scholarship, athletic, or other school-administered programs.
