School Notes

  • Redeemer Lutheran School has provided quality Christian education to K-6 students in the Salt Lake City area since 1961. Small classes allow education standards to aim high spiritually and academically in developing the knowledge, skills and potential for each child. Individual assessments and grouping by instructional level is important to student success. The students at Redeemer Lutheran School consistently score very high on annual MAP testing. Curriculum includes music, art, physical education, foreign language, and integration of technology into the classrooms. Students participate in gardening, STEAM Day, and Field Day. Electives such as MAD Science, Chess Club, and sports are available. Staffed by licensed, experienced teachers, Redeemer Lutheran School is accredited by National Lutheran School Association.
  • At Redeemer Lutheran Church and School we strongly believe that Christian Education is not a commodity. It is a ministry. It is a commitment. It is a connection, a connection between your child's needs, your families` philosophy and our schools philosophy. That being said, investing in your child is important.
  • That is why Redeemer Lutheran Church and School has one of the most robust need based scholarship programs. The Carson Smith scholarship however is not a financial needs based scholarship. For more information on how to apply please visit the Carson Smith website.

My children transferred to Redeemer School almost 2 1/2 years ago. They have loved it, and I have loved sending them here. The teachers are wonderful. I appreciate the time and attention they put into their lessons. I love the material they are learning, and I appreciate the rigor I feel my children are getting at Redeemer. They are learning some great study habits that I know will help them in the future. It is a safe, warm, and caring environment. I am glad we found Redeemer. Come check it out!

Wonderful teachers and an exceptional principal! There is a caring and involved parent-teacher association that creates a fun, loving community. The kids are all friends and support each other :) Redeemer is close-knit but open and welcoming at the same time. It`s been the best education for our children! Their individual needs are met with love and logic and they have excelled in all areas. You can`t go wrong with a fantastic faculty that is Christ-centered and has a heart for serving our happy kiddos.

We love Redeemer! Best decision we made for our daughter. We have seen her thrive in a small classroom setting. Redeemer also has gatherings that allow the community to participate. We have enjoyed hanging out and making new friends among the parents. Give Redeemer a try, you won`t regret it!

Our daughters have gone to this school for 3 years, Joni really has gone above and beyond to keep us comfortable and able to afford to continue to have 2 kids in the school. Our eldest daughter has a learning disability and the school has helped her tremendously in catching up to her peers. We couldn't ask for a better school!

I was looking for a school that was fun but still academically challenging and we found that at Redeemer. My daughter loves school and all the activities that bring learning from paper to real-life moments. her favorite day in kindergarten is Wednesdays because it`s a science which consist of baking cool new recipes as well as show and tell which helps her gain confidence to speak in front of crowds amongst all the other fun activities that keep her engaged and learning not to mention building a great foundation in Faith.

Redeemer Lutheran School has been wonderful with my two grandchildren. We have been involved with this school for the past five years. I have found the teachers to be patient and kind, yet consistent, fair, and firm with the rules. It is easy to see that the entire staff are all invested in the care of these children, and they bend over backward to ensure that all of the students get the best of care, according to their needs. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who cares about their child's academics, socialization, care, character-building, and overall well-being.

This school is exactly what I was looking for! We aren't super religious but they engulfed us into their loving supportive community which was something I struggled with other places. I have a child in Pre-K and one in kindergarten, and they absolutely love school! The classrooms are welcoming and designed to make learning engaging and fun. My son is reading and doing 1st-grade math. The teachers provide lessons based on where the kids are at while pushing them to reach their potential! Take a look at this school you won't be disappointed! Oh, and while they do teach religion the basis is that Jesus loves us and provides for our needs. Seriously check out this school!

Redeemer Lutheran School has a lot to offer. My sons have been in attendance since Kindergarten, and we love the smaller class sizes, focused teachers, and personal touch of really understanding each child. The community is great, and we feel we`re part of the Redeemer family. I highly recommend it!
