We love this school! We sent our 3 children through Resurrection and we would do it again. The teachers really cared about our children and they got a good education and grew in their relationship with Christ.

We love this school! The staff and principle work so hard to help our kids learn and grow. They focus on innovative ways to teach STEM and math. We even got a 3D printer this year! My favorite part is the diversity of the students and the resounding message that we are ALL children of God who are special, unique, and in control of our actions.
