School Notes

  • Our Redeemer faculty and staff educate children in a small, diverse classroom environment, challenging each student to work harder at their individual level, all the while developing a strong Christian character so that students have success in high school and beyond.
  • ORLS is noted for graduates who experience success at their high schools and beyond, many becoming salutatorians and valedictorians of their high school classes. Our students all graduate from high school and most go on to complete college as well. We have alumni in many professions and many have studied abroad.
