Our Savior's Lutheran School is a mission of Our Savior's Lutheran Church for over past 60 years.
Our mission is, "Making Disciples - Sharing Christ's Love."What makes Our Savior's Springfield Area's School of Choice is that we provide three daily essentials:1. Christ-centered -- Christ is at the core of everything we do at Our Savior's School.2. Lasting Relationships -- As a Christian school, O.S. builds strong, caring relationships within a nurturing, family environment between students, teachers, families, and community. Our teachers and staff focus on serving our students and families. Relationships established and built at Our Savior's last a lifetime.3. Culture of Excellence -- Because of the first two essentials, Our Savior's can readily provide excellent academic and extra-curricular programs that exceed other area schools. Students from O.S. are well equipped to move on to high school both in academics and as a well-rounded student with a strong foundation in Christian values and lifestyle.

School Reviews

My student attended Our Savior's all through grade school and jr. high. The education she received at Our Savior's put her high-level math, English, and science classes in high school. The strong Christian foundation she received in grade school and jr. high has enabled her to navigate the difficulties and temptations of high school.
