Our 3 children are Our Savior's Lutheran School Eagles! Two are now graduates. We have been very pleased with the education our children have received. The teachers are dedicated to growing as educators and reaching and teaching students. As children grow, they WILL experience challenges in their lives. It is a blessing to know that as they go through life's challenges, they have teachers at OS who not only care about their educational needs but also their emotional and spiritual needs. Our children have been positively impacted by the guidance and mentorship of the teachers, staff, and the family of parents who make OS the excellent school it is.

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.
