Redeemer Lutheran Middle School

The Redeemer Lutheran Middle School Program has been designed to prepare 6th – 8th graders for high school. Students work independently and in small groups to produce high quality work applying the skills and knowledge they have gained through study and research. Technology is used as a collaborative tool under the watchful eye of the classroom teacher. Each student is assigned a laptop at the beginning of the school year to use during school hours.
