OSLS is near and dear to my heart. I am an alumni and now both my children attend this wonderful school. The academics at this school are top notch. The smaller class size allows for more individualized attention. Having a Christ centered education is a very important component for my childrens everyday routine. There are sports and other clubs for children to take part in. I`ve had parents tell me how well prepared their high school children were compared to their peers. I can`t say enough good about this wonderful school.

We are new at Our Savior. Our son came from a Catholic school. He didn't have a good experience there but now he loves his new school. The kids are nice and welcoming, the parents are the same, very welcoming. The staff are very helpful. The academics are very strong. I highly recommend this school

I am so happy that we found Our Savior Lutheran School. Our older son attended K-8 and our younger son is still enrolled in grade school. We appreciate everything the staff has done to prepare our sons for whatever God has in his plan for them. I LOVE that Our Savior still teaches handwriting and they have chapel each week (chapel buddies are an added bonus!).

Love this school. Students are very well prepared academically for high school when done here. Even though they are now in different high schools all over the city, my son is still best friends with the kids he grew up with at OSLS.

We have had two children in this top notch school for eight years now. It really gives us peace of mind in knowing that the level of education and morals learned here are far superior to the public school system. The children are names and not numbers. The music program is exceptional. We will be back again next year.

We love OSLS!! Carr family

All 3 of our children have attended OSLS. We have had a wonderful experience. The teachers are dedicated to the learning and success of each child and family as a whole. As a past ALUMNI, I can voice how well prepared I was for high school and the foundation they provided me to succeed even through a masters level education.

We were looking for a great challenging education for my 2 children while ensuring they were in a safe environment. Thanks to the principal and staff at OSLS my kids are well prepared for the challenges of high school and college and have the necessary social skills to be successful in life. We are very lucky to have found a school that cares as much about each kid as the parents who send them there do. It takes a village... and I'm glad OSLS is a part of ours!

I am a parent of two students at Our Savior and a 1996 graduate of Our Savior as well. What continues to amaze me about this school is the caliber of the faculty and staff. Many of the teachers who taught me are still at Our Savior - more than 25 years later! It is this continuity and steadfast dedication that set OSLS apart from other private schools in the area. My son and daughter are in preschool and 2nd grade, respectively, and daily show me how they are advancing academically and socially. After leaving Our Savior, I went on to graduate as valedictorian of my high school class, attended a private liberal arts university on a scholarship, and completed graduate school to become a teacher myself. I expect great things for my own children, and am confident that foundation is being laid at Our Savior.

Our family has been blessed by the teachers and faculty at Our Savior, who provided an amazing and challenging learning experience for our four children. The academics are truly second to none. All of children took the most difficult courses and programs after graduating and were extremely well prepared. The teachers and staff are very caring and they share important life lessons and help build confidence and character. This school is one of the best schools in Louisville.

We have kids ranging from 5th grade through pre-school at Our Savior. This school has a close family atmosphere. The elementary academics gradually step students up, preparing them to be independent learners as they approach the middle school (6-8) program. Here you find students that are overall caring, inclusive and focused. Their buddy system allows older students to connect with younger students and provide solid mentoring opportunities.

I am both a teacher and a parent of 2 Our Savior Lutheran graduates. Both of my girls were well prepared for high school, not just academically, but even more importantly they were confident, responsible, and well grounded in Christian values. As the middle school science teacher, I strive to foster curiosity and a strong foundation in the sciences. The use of computer simulations, hands-on activities as well as STEM challenges are a main component of the science program.

The music program at Our Savior is outstanding. There are opportunities for choir, band, handbells, musicals and more. My children always look forward to the Boar's Head Festival, the Spring Sing, and the School Musical. Fine Arts are alive and well at Our Savior!

Our Savior has provided such a wonderful education and experiences for my children. My son was so well prepared entering high school and his AP counselor at Trinity said that all the boys from OSLS come to their school with such a strong academic background. My other son that is currently at the school is very strong academically and loves going to school each and every day. I never regret my children and family choosing this school. The teachers and staff are excellent!!!

I am a parent of two boys. My oldest graduated from Our Savior last year and is now doing very well in High School. My youngest is still in elementary school at OSLS. Both my wife and I attended public school in Missouri where we grew up, so we never dreamed we would have kids in private school. We absolutely could not be happier with the quality education and Christian Foundation that are boys have received at Our Savior. Compared to other private schools, it is also more affordable. I would highly recommend this school.

We have 2 children in the middle school and another getting ready to attend Pre School next year. My son likes the archery and the rocketry elective. They are growing up in a Christian environment and getting a great education with small class sizes.

If you are looking for a school where your child can feel part of a family of students and staff, and where academics and extracurriculars are both exceptional, you should definitely check out Our Savior!

Being at Our Savior is like being at home. Parent involvement is extraordinary and the staff works together to help all the students excel both academically and spiritually. Our daughters have grown up here and are well prepared for what the future has in store for them.

As the COVID-19 virus spreads throughout the United States, we look at steps schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
