I have 4 children who have attended Our Savior New American School; from Pre-K - 12th grade. My children have received an excellent Christ centered education. The teachers and administrators are friendly, caring and knowledgeable in their area of expertise. I highly recommend Our Savior New American School for your child's education.

I have two children attending OSNAS this year (2020/2021) one in 2nd grade the other in Kindergarten ...... amazing school I definitely recommend this school....... my kindergartener is much more advanced than her sibling was who attended kindergarten through public school for example.... phonics is one big difference I see and learning how to read a clock already, learning Spanish, using REAL money to buy lunch (which is actually real good from local restaurants) it truly amazes me the difference I see. My 2nd grader had some difficulty in the beginning of the year learning phonics but has adapted quickly and is excelling now and even made honor roll... last year when she was attending public school I had to hire a private math tutor but this year I don`t even really have to help her with her homework SHE GETS IT! I doubted sending my children to OUR SAVIOR but it was the best decision we have made. My son who is only 1.5 will definitely be attending OSNAS as soon as he's old enough. The principal is quick to respond to e-mails and I feel like everyone knows my children they don`t get lost amongst the others like in public school. HIGHLY recommend this school!

Our savior new American school has been a fantasist experience for my stepdaughter. She started in kindergarten and is currently in fifth grade. She sincerely loves her friends, teachers, classes and most of all Bible. Our savior is Christ centered. Daily prayer and chapel which is open to family as well is a great positive way to start your day. As a parent, I look forward to having my other daughter also attend our savior when she is ready for kindergarten. I myself also attended our savior. The school's core values are strong. The faculty is also strong. The teachers are like family they truly love their students. The class sizes are small, which is a great teacher to student ratio. As a member of PTC- parent teacher connection, which is similar to PTA, I must say the opportunities are endless. The school staff along with myself and other involved parents volunteer our time for school events for the children. Every year we have new ideas, and it's always worth it to see the endless smiles on our children's faces. If you are looking for an affordable, small, Christian centered school who will treat you like family, you have found the right school. The devotion of the faculty is unbelievable we are just super thankful and blessed. My husband and I recommend this school, especially if you are looking for the love of god to always come first followed by a strong curriculum.

Our Savior New American School has been my second home and family for 15 years. I started there in Pre-school and graduated high school. I love the christian values, faculty, and lifelong friendships this school provided for me. I am forever grateful for Our Savior and all those who dedicated their time and services here!

OSNAS is Christ-centered and Classical. Every subject is taught from a biblical perspective and worldview. My children have benefited from the small class sizes, compassionate teachers, academic rigor, and strong emphasis on virtue, integrity and respect.

I appreciate the well-balanced education my child is receiving.She participates in sports, clubs, and after-school activities. In addition to her core subjects, she also takes classes in foreign language, music, art, STEM, and Bible. The Christmas and Spring concerts are always a highlight for me.

My child has thrived at OSNAS both as a student and as a person. I believe this is because OSNAS places a strong emphasis on a safe, nurturing, and Christ-centered environment. My daughter has ample opportunity to pursue her interests through various clubs (STEM, drama, art, etc). The teachers are what really set OSNAS apart. Their concern for my child's overall development is inspiring and much appreciated.

The loving and supportive environment at Our Savior is unlike any other school I've seen. The teachers go way beyond what is required of them and have helped my son more than I could have ever imagined. The sports programs at Our Savior have had a major impact in my kids lives and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for their son or daughter to remain in team sports. Keep up the great work Our Savior!

Great small school with plenty to offer. Curriculum is challenging.Classes are small enough that your child will get one on one attention. Very happy with school and my kids are doing amazing.
