Our son attended the SNU Lab School from Pre-K through 5th grade, where he graduated before entering middle school. This is a wonderful school, and it was a great foundation for his early years of learning. The dedication each teacher has is AMAZING! We could not have asked for a better education for him.

There are not enough great things to say about SNU Lab School. From the variety of excellent learning experiences for students, to the creative and innovative teaching, SNU Lab School not only offers a wonderful education for children but also offers character formation and emotional maturity. My family has had nothing but positive experiences with teachers, administrators, other students, and other families within the school. Our child has benefited greatly from the small class sizes, the opportunity for one-on-one and small group instruction, and the close relationships developed with other students. I could not have wished for a better educational opportunity for our child.

Both of my children attended SNU. They loved their teachers and those teachers continue to be invested cheer leaders in their lives as they grow beyond SNU years. From a parent perspective the most valuable skills my children learned were leadership, how to be a good team member, and critical thinking. Those skills are taught by expert teachers with gifts- you can't buy a curriculum for those things. Their SNU experience and the emotional and academic skills they learned will benefit them throughout their lives. We are so pleased we had the opportunity to send our children here!

All four of my children have attended the SNU Lab School for a combined 24 years, with one still in Upper Primary. This school has provided all of them with an excellent foundation for their later school endeavors. The teachers do a terrific job of encouraging kids to reach their full potential. All of my children enjoyed school orchestra lessons as well. I wholeheartedly recommend the SNU Lab School!

We LOVE this school! Both of our grandchildren have been here since Pre K, one now in fourth grade and one in first. We are so excited for the expansion of middle school and look forward to exciting new things! The teaching staff is excellent and the Christian influence and love of Christ is felt through the entire school! The addition of Mr. Titus is energizing and a blessing to our school! An amazing place to learn and grow!

What you will find at SNU Lab School is a private instruction and faith-based environment unlike any other in Oklahoma City - or Oklahoma. When we surveyed private Christian schools before our daughter entered Pre-K, something about the environmental culture, mixed-grade classrooms and student mentoring we saw from the older kids to the younger ones - and overall vibe of the school resonated with us. The qualifications of the teachers were second to none, the attitude each of them has towards the students was so nurturing, and watching the kids soak up what they do while being respectful and kind to each other was something to behold. It encouraged me to be involved with the school as a volunteer when I can just to be in the environment. This school is definitely one of a kind and as a Lab School, there are things in the curriculum that are cutting edge and very different from public schools (which are much slower to change from the 100-year-old classroom teaching design from what I can see). Visit SNU Lab School and you will see the difference very quickly. Our daughter is now in 4th grade (Upper Primary) and we are as happy as the day we discovered the school. A private school is an investment in your children - not a cost of having children. Get in that mindset and you'll discover that this is as good as it gets.

SNU Lab School has changed our lives! The teacher/student ratio is amazing. Our son is in 1st grade and has grown in his education, confidence, and love for learning since starting SNU in the fall. He just said last night, "I Love school!" This is a complete turnaround from last year. The teachers, staff, principal, etc. are amazing. We feel so blessed to have our children at a Christian school that is also a ton of fun for them! We couldn't recommend SNU Lab School more.
