We feel blessed to have found this hidden gem! Our son loves his school. We love the diversity that this school has along with the class sizes are ideal providing more direct interaction with the students. I love to hear my son sing songs that he has learned in school that encourage his heart mind and soul. The students sense of responsibility for their learning is fostered since kindergarten. Teacher and staff are involved and parent participation is encouraged and welcomed. This school is Christ-centered, God's truth is spoken through the Holy Scriptures. It is an inviting atmosphere where kids are also encouraged and empowered by the truth of the Gospel! Great Teachers and staff. It is a school that is family-oriented with many opportunities for family-fun activities. Our son loves his school, and we do too. We highly recommend this school. Great school and Church environment. Teachers look for alternatives to approach learning in a way that will help the student stay on track; while maintaining effective communication with the parents. Teachers help the student reflect upon their actions in a way that encourages and helps their self-esteem. Students receive homework in accordance with grade level. A variety of enrichment program are offered. PE is offered since kindergarten.

Fantastic school- the care for our kids and their whole person development is outstanding. It's such a welcoming, warm atmosphere with Christian values that permeate each and every day. Experienced teachers who feel called to do what they do it's definitely not just a paycheck for them! Our kids are so happy here- they love going to school!

Our Savior seems to be a hidden gem in Arlington. I am constantly amazed at how much we love this school. The teachers and principal put in so much extra effort and attention to run the school. I love the cozy and supportive environment as well as the faith-based values that are taught. I appreciate that the class sizes are smaller than the local (overcrowded) public schools, and I like that my child is with the same group of students from year to year. The students have formed strong bonds, and they remain supportive of each other. Despite the smaller size, the student body is quite diverse. The majority of the teachers have been teaching at this school for many years, and they are clearly passionate about their vocation and about the students. Since the class sizes are smaller, the teachers have more time to dedicate to each child and are able to adapt to the needs and interests of the class and individual students as possible. My child has thrived at Our Savior.

A diamond in the rough - located in the heart of Arlington. If you are looking for a loving, caring faculty that truly welcomes students as if they were family, this is the place for you. Middle schoolers play games with the principal on "game night." Home school visits by teachers at the start of every year for the entire student body. Fantastic communication. Rigorous academics, close knit student body, small class sizes -- all in a Christian education. Doesn't get any better than this !
