Once upon a time, a family visited Our Redeemer Lutheran School and found that all that they needed was right there all along. They joined the Wildcat family and found joyful, skilled educators who had the ability to teach their child just the way they’d always hoped: with loving care, strong academics with a language-rich focus, fine arts, STEM, socio-emotional and physical learning, and so much more. All on a beautiful, 10-acre campus across from NorthPark Mall, with beauty to feed their senses as well as their minds.
Does that pique your interest? Allow me to tell you a little bit more about Our Reedemer (or ORLS as the locals call it). I always like to start with the basics. Let’s hit it:

Our Redeemer Lutheran School

  • Preschool (from age 1) to 6th grade (after which many students continue on to their sister school, Dallas Lutheran School)
  • Student-teacher ratio in preschool is either 6:1 or 8:1
  • Student-teacher ratio in elementary is 16:1
  • Co-ed, with uniforms required beginning in Kindergarten
  • Faith-based education
  • Great location – Park Lane across from NorthPark
  • Established in 1960
  • Kids’ Club before/after care program
I’m very into the age range for their early childhood education. Seems like a nice option to consider vs. straight-up daycare for your toddler. I also like what they have to say in terms of their approach to faith-based teaching:

We counter the man-made models of success that we see in the media by celebrating the qualities beyond fame and fortune. The fruits of the Spirit – love, peace, joy, self-control, kindness, faith, goodness, and gentleness – enrich the learning of our students.

It’s also cool to know that preschoolers get a chance to interact with some of the older kids, as well:

Each preschool class is paired with an elementary grade as a “buddy” class. The “buddies” do special projects with the preschoolers, sit with them in chapel, and assist them in other all-school functions.

I love that.

As for the older kids, academic excellence is a big part of the story at Our Redeemer Lutheran School. Part of that means your child will be assessed for both math and reading, and instructed based on their aptitude. No languishing in class from lack of challenges. And check out these other academic highlights and extracurricular enrichment strands ORLS offers in order to help your child learn about the importance of teamwork, healthy competition, and personal achievement.

If this is starting to sound pretty good, that means it’s time to make contact. Open enrollment begins this January for Fall 2020. Click here to schedule a tour, apply online, and more!
