    Redeemer is a small caring dedicated and Christ-centered learning community. I have been a parent at RLS for 5 years with two children currently enrolled and one to join in a few years. The community of Redeemer is committed to nurturing and engaging all types of learners. I have never had a problem with having staff or the principal respond to my needs concerns or questions. The teachers love their students work hard each year to expand their expectations (writing scope and sequence writer's workshop math facts Resource support) and experiences for our children (Ocean Week Cultural Week Science Night Author's Night etc). The recent addition of the Resource teacher PE teacher Vice Principal and Principal's Advisory Board are other examples of the school's commitment to education. Do not let any of these negative reviews sway you from calling the school for a visit. Check it out for yourself you will not be disappointed!

    To the reviewer who stated that their are 16 "free" staff children that are driving up the rates please elaborate because I do believe your false information needs to be corrected. Rates are not driven by ANYTHING other than the normal 3-5% increase ALL aspects of the economy undergo on an annual basis. Please feel free to share the source of your wisdom as that seems to be what is driving you to give such a negative review.

    The principle would allow bullying to death. This principle minimizes problems and deems situations as no big deal. The teacher quality is really poor. They don't even know how to do basic math.

    Reading the negative reviews. My exact experience. They also are not a 'bargain' they have gone up. They are paying for 16 staff children to go to the school so they are charging a lot more to cover them. DO NOT RECOMMEND. Regret sending my kids here. Certain parents run the parent board. If you have a new idea they don't care. The special ed program is not effective sine the middle school teachers rarely follow what is supposed to be done.

    Redeemer School is a BARGAIN for the top-notch education that my child has received and is currently receiving. My friends are surprised when I tell them that every year my child's teacher visits our home before school starts to answer any of our questions and to get to know my child before the year even begins! The teachers have always been available to meet with me and the communication is excellent. The principal has a passion for Christ that is visible to all and he is a great example for my child. The team is never satisfied with just an average year; it seems that they are constantly working to make the best school. They have implemented a Culture Week (the kids study different countries and present them to the rest of the school) standards-based report cards the use of "Smart Boards" in the classroom and even had a science day last year with several of the grades completing fun experiments! I looked at many other schools in the area (including North Star) but nothing compares to the academic and spiritual education that Redeemer offers my child. If you want your child to be known as more than a number bring them to Redeemer!

    It's a church w/ attached school mainly for generating income. Little attention to students/family needs (unless you are church member). We had two kids there for two yrs experience was disappointing for a private school it felt like being squeezed out for money. Acamedically poor due to teachers have little outside experience many of them are actually past Redeemer graduates. On plus side stuff cares for the children they have good afterschool childcare. Can't recommend this school.

    I've had my children in Redeemer since 1993. Even after leaving the school they speak fondly of their experience there and their love for their teachers of past. The education was top notch demanding and very much prepared them for high school. The environment is very caring loving and nurturing. My youngest son will be in 8th grade in 2009-2010 and I'll be sad to leave Redeemer school behind. It's been an outstanding experience for my family.

    Be aware of the promises the principal makes! We were impressed by the high promises e.g. personal attention etc. the principal gave us. After we enrolled our child in fourth garde everyting changed. Neither teacher nor the school stuff was available to discuss any issues with us we felt worse treated by Redeemer Schhol than in any public school with 100+ students per grade. Definitely not recommended. Mother of a 4th grader.

    Even though the first impression appears appealing (small number of students personal attention) after a couple of month the picture turns pretty negative troublingsome experience with teachers (lack of competency) too much focus on material issues (e.g. ongoing talk about the churches financial situation along with requests to the families to keep donating to the church's aggressive expansion plans). The school has ongoing issues with it's cirriculum which favors great students and leaves out average talented ones. In our experience Redeemer Lutheran School is not recommended especially given the large variety of other hreat schools on the Peninsula.

    We are absolutely thrilled with the quality of education at this surprisingly moderately priced private school. Other privates may charge thousands more but it would be hard to convince me that the children receive a better educational experience. The Principal is outstanding and sets the tone and standards very high for the other teachers. great teacher communication and involvement.
