Whether in the classroom, gymnasium, chapel or hallways, God`s love through Jesus Christ our Savior is the heart of all we do.

Teachers meet students at their level and provide encouragement, accountability, and support. In this growth-minded and grace-filled learning environment, our students excel academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.

We have sent all three of our children to Resurrection. We love the Christ-centered education as well as the small class sizes. The teachers truly care about the kids and the school community feels like an extended family.

We were looking for a school with smaller class sizes and more one-on-one attention from teachers. This is our 4th year at Resurrection and our kids are thriving! The teachers genuinely care about seeing their students succeed both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. Having a Christ-centered education has been the best choice for our family!

Resurrection has been amazing for our family! Enrolling our children at RLS has been the best parenting decision we have made. I am continuously impressed with the way the entire staff loves our kids and truly knows them. The academic curriculum is rigorous, and the Biblical knowledge my kids are gaining is so important. The staff is welcoming and wonderful with communication. There are many engaging family events and opportunities to be involved. I highly recommend Resurrection Lutheran School!

I love this school. I attended, myself, and "graduated" in 2000. The bonds created at this school have stuck with me for a life time. I moved my kids from public school to RLS in January of 2020. And it was the best decision even if Covid was on the horizon. The reason I switched from public to RLS was that my kids were struggling in the public school and in going to conferences and things no one was willing to help them. With in a few months of switching schools, I received a recommendation to have my daughter tested for dyslexia. And she indeed did have dyslexia. I don't think I would have ever received that recommendation if we would have stayed in the public schools. It just shows the love and compassion that these teachers and aides have for these kids. Best decision I ever made.

Resurrection Lutheran School has been a blessing in our lives since joining in 2020. We love the environment that is created with open communication, a high level of learning expectations, and the overall attitude of the teachers and support staff. One thing I remember being impressed with is when schoolwork came home and papers were marked with penmanship errors! Not only are students expected to complete their work correctly but their penmanship is also expected to be neat. The level of individual attention given to students and their families is unparallel to our experience in the public school system. For example, students are greeted at the door by name nearly every morning by Principal Renner and/or Pastor Olson. Along with this same idea of fellowship, there are school-sponsored events throughout the school year to encourage school families to get to know each other through picnics, seasonal activities, and game nights. Extracurricular activities are offered with an impressive variety for a small school including sports, music, art, and science. These activities are taught/coached by school staff and volunteers. The before and after school program is another great service that we utilize as finding school-age care in Rochester was a challenge for us. We are happy with our decision to enroll our kids in Resurrection Lutheran School and highly recommend that you check it out.

Our three children attended Resurrection Lutheran School. We highly recommend this school as the teachers were great and the education they received was excellent. Our kids had a great experience, enjoyed the extracurricular activities, and were well-prepared for high school. I highly recommend this school!

We have two daughters that have gone through school. The teachers are very knowledgeable and they care deeply for the students. They want the kids to succeed in the classroom and outside of it. There is great communication between the parents, staff, and principal. Everything they do has a solid Christian base. The sports programs were a great way to get to know other families in the school.

The teachers and staff are amazing! My child's experience here has been wonderful. Communication is excellent and the extra help offered through aides and a school counselor is outstanding. We can't believe how wonderful the school is and how well it reflects God's love. We highly recommend Resurrection Lutheran School!
