LOVE this school! Our daughter tried public school and it was not a good fit - she just got lost in the crowd. We tried another private school and it was a very bad experience. We decided to try ORLS, but were a little hesitant coming off of bad experience at the last private school - we are SO GLAD we did. The teachers and staff are amazing and take learning to a new level. Since we have moved our daughter to this school 2 years ago, she has excelled academically and socially. We have enjoyed the other families at the school - it truly feels like a family environment. ORLS also has a lot of after-school activities and clubs that our daughter enjoys and is getting to try a lot of new sports. I would highly recommend this school for anyone who is looking for a great private school in Dallas, with a great combination of Christian education and a very welcoming environment!

Great school- I have a graduate and a current student both are excelling academically, they have built confidence in their abilities, and have long term friends. This is a caring and loving environment, many after school activities and parents are involved.
