My wife and I have had our son at Red Apple through the entire program, 4 years. We are extremely glad [emphasis] we chose Red Apple over other area schools. But why? It started with a clear and sincere meeting with Mariam Hamre, the director. She took careful time, showing us the school and describing each level's program, 2-yr-olds to kindergarten. It went from there to seeing the facility (very solid), and the engaged and happy children, and engaged teachers and assistants. In this school, you get a Christ-centered education. It provides all the right learning at each level, welcoming them as they are and helping them explore and grow. You don't have to be a member of the church: they express love for your child no matter who she or he is. We've been consistently impressed with the teachers, too. So many of them . . . and so good and effective. If you want a nurtured environment, this school is it. Believe me. You'll be impressed as you get to know the staff, the way the school operates, and especially the result you'll see in your child. I hope you truly consider Red Apple. My son finishes kindergarten this year. God Bless Red Apple and everyone there!

You know you have found a great school when your son wakes up Thursday morning asking how many days until he gets to go to school again, and it's not until Monday. This is my son's first year of preschool at Red Apple and he absolutely loves it. The teachers are positive, supportive and encouraging. They have gone above and beyond my expectations by providing meaningful, hands-on learning experiences and by keeping parents informed of what is going on in the classroom. The teachers obviously have a great love for children and of teaching. I can't say enough about Red Apple, but the most important thing is that my son loves learning and he is having a great time doing it.

My daughter was born 15weeks premature, so when she turned 2 she needed a walker to assist her, no other schools would even let us tour there facilities because of this. From Day 1, Mrs. Hamre said let's see what she can do...Red Apple, gave her the chance she needed. Over the summer she was able to walk without the walker and walked in unassisted on her first day and we haven't looked back since. The staff is warm, loving, and up beat....this is the school for us.

We have search high and low for the "perfect" school for our daughter. After visits to many area preschools, we began to wonder if our standards were just too high. From the moment that we stepped into Red Apple Lutheran School at Peace, we knew it was the right school for our family. The warm feeling you have walking the halls is indescribable. The faculty and staff is a step above any other school we looked at (and we looked at lot). You can clearly see this in everyone walking the halls, especially on the faces of the happy students. Something else that impressed us was how secure the school was. The safety of the children is an obvious priority and one of the many factors that sold us on this school. I can honestly say, I would not want my children to go anywhere else - and we are driving about 30 minutes each way. I highly recommend that you go to visit the school, meet the staff, and see for yourself. You won't regret it!

One of the first big parenting decisions is where to send your child to preschool. It is one that was not taken lightly in our home. We feel BLESSED to have found and enrolled our daughter into Red Apple and look forward to our other children attending one day as well. I cannot say enough about this school. From the amazing director, to the youngest students, and everyone in between, this school is the best. We are grateful to have found a school that caters to our child's age, personality, and ability. It is a true stepping stone for a successful education. Thank you Red Apple Lutheran School at Peace! We look forward to many years in your school. :)

If you are looking for the BEST preschool & kindergarten, stop & look no further. Red Apple is, by far, the best school. We have had 2 children enrolled in Red Apple for 4 years and our entire family has been so blessed. The school and the staff are amazing. This is a whole family experience, even when my husband was deployed for a year, The school took care of me and my children.. Always a listening ear and an open heart...

Red Apple has been such a blessing to my son! Before coming to Red Apple my son was enrolled at another preschool. We had such an awful experience so finding Red Apple has been a treasure for our family. The director is amazing & so caring. The staff & teachers are so involved & care of our son as he was their own. I look forward to my two other toddlers attending! Thank you Red Apple!!!

This is my son's second year at Red Apple. I highly recommend this school. My son thrives in the caring and nuturing environment that is provided. His teachers are thoughtful and patient. They are available to answer any questions I may have. I feel and can tell that the children's well being is a priority here.

All four of my kids have gone here (my last one finishes this year), and they loved it! Great teachers that care about the kids and their families. All my kids learned a deep love for reading. More than that, they learned how to respect and care for other people, how to problem-solve, and simply how to learn. What a great foundation my kids received at Red Apple!

Red Apple is the best value for preschool and undoubtedly for Kindergarten. It's long-standing repution in the community speaks for itself, as does the fact that most of the students who attend are from families who aren't affiliated with the church.

Red Apple School is hands-down the best preschool in the area. I haven't found another school that offers their low teacher/student ratio (two teachers with a max class size of 15 in most classes and 2:7 in the two-year-old class!). Having that kind of one-on-one attention is unheard of. Not only do they offer an amazing curriculum, but I love how they emphasize manners, caring for others, making good choices and generosity. It's no wonder that I have heard elementary teachers say that the students who come from Red Apple are the most attentive, well mannered, A+ students in their classes with many in the gifted and talented programs at their schools. I am so thankful to the amazing staff at Red Apple for always making my kids feel loved and providing them with a strong foundation for learning!

We have been Red Apple Parents for over 9 years. I found out about this school from one of their former teachers, and was lucky to find the director there one summer day. Choosing this school has been one of my kids' biggest blessings in their academic career. One can never overemphasize the impact of having 2 teachers to a classroom size of 15! Every dollar spent at this school is money well spent!! My family has always discussed giving the school a large amount of money to keep it available to kids after kindergarten. I cannot say enough positive things about Red Apple!

Red Apple is the BEST school!! The teachers and staff are wonderful and care SO much for the children! It is VERY apparent that the teachers, staff and directors are there because they LOVE children and their jobs...that is the best feeling a parent could have:) The artwork and activities are open ended and give students an opportunity to be unique and creative while working on their own level. My daughter gets VERY excited when it is a day she goes to Red Apple and LOVES going to chapel. She has gained SO much knowledge and more importantly the teachers and staff at Red Apple have fostered in her a LOVE of learning. Our family feels SO BLESSED to have found Red Apple!!!

My daughter began Red Apple at the age of 2. We were very interested in finding a great school that would not only provide her creativity but education as well. We not only found that at Red Apple, they have completely exceeded our expectations! My daughter comes home from school and tells me about her day with such excitement. She enjoys her teachers very much and talks about them constantly. She has even learned a great deal of Spanish this year and is in love with the idea of learning a new language. We have so enjoyed our time with Red Apple that we will continue with their services through kindergarten. Thank you Red Apple for a wonderful education!

We have LOVED every day of our year in Red Apple Kindergarten. My son actually gets excited on Monday mornings to return to his precious teachers, classmates, and staff, who are so family-oriented and loving . Their emphasis on Christian values and Biblical learning have benefitted our entire family, and the small class sizes and 2 teachers per room have enabled the highest level of education and learning to take place for my son. We would LOVE to see this program grow to accommodate the older grades. We are, however, so blessed to have been a part of this fabulous program if only for a year.

Red Apple is by far the greatest school--as my kindergartener would put it--"in the whole wide world." I have visited and assessed so many schools for my daughter and attended 11 different schools myself (we moved a lot)... and nothing compares with Red Apple. It has that old fashioned school house feel yet with all of the modern and advanced styles of learning available. I could go on and on about Red Apple. The school director and assistant director (and all of the school's staff) are the most wonderful, professional, and caring people ever. The teachers are all wonderful, thorough, caring, and organized teachers... the best teachers I've ever had the pleasure of getting to know. The school is clean, colorful, beautiful, and has a fabulous playground (2 actually, one for smaller children, and one for the older children). My daughter has learned, and continues to learn, such wonderful social graces and has excelled academically beyond my expectations!! They foster such wonderful creativity and ingenuity in every different and unique child that attends their school. I wish they offered 1st through 12th grade. We would stay forever if they did.

My son has attended Red Apple School for a year now, and we love it. The teachers are so loving and supportive, and they've given him the confidence and desire to learn. Their methods of teaching involve a very hands-on approach, with a lot of educational, purposeful centers, movement and music, which is perfect for my VERY active four year old. I also love knowing that the God of the Bible and Jesus Christ are instilled in my child each day he is there. We love it here!

My daughter loves Red Apple so much she says she is going to go here forever! Her teachers are amazing, so caring & in tune with all the kids & their needs. I wouldn't send my kids any place else! Chapel is also a huge hit, my daughter sings the songs all week long. The director and staff know the kids by name & even their siblings that don't attend yet. Very friendly & they truly care about you! LOVE Red Apple!

Red Apple School has been an excellent school for my son. He had several developmental delays when we went into their three year old class. Since then he has overcome them all with the loving, patient and attentive staff. The entire staff has supported us through every endeavor that our family has embarked on. We have been at Red Apple for three years and have loved all of them. I highly recommend Red Apple to any family looking to build a loving relationship with their child s teachers and administrators. They truly care about your child and your family.

We chose the Red Apple School because they have a class that is specifically for kids who are on the line between 3-4 (turn 4 between Sept. 1 and Dec 31). We have loved everything about the experience. My daughter has attended Red Apple School for the last two years. She is currently in the Pre-K program and is undoubtedly prepared for Kindergarten next year. The teachers at Red Apple are excellent, very caring and tuned in. They do a great job communicating with us about progress as well as what is going on in the classroom. There are super opportunities for parental involvement, but not pressure if it doesn't fit in to our schedule. The administrators are wonderful and take time to get to know every family. We can't recommend Red Apple enough. It is fabulous.

I was told about Red Apple Lutheran School over 3 years ago from a work friend. It was the BIGGEST BLESSING for our family!!!! We have 3 children, one of which attended for 3 years thru kindergarten and is excelling in all subjects and her 1st grade teacher states she is a she is a delight to have in public school. My 1st grader misses chapel and prayer that is not offered in public. My other two children with attend thru Kinder due to the STRONG base Red Apple gives the children a strong academic, faith, caring, loving, confident base. The Principal is amazing, she gets to know the families, all the children by name, runs the weekly chapels. The extra curricular activities they have for the children are amazing and there is always something to volunteer for, if you have the time. If not, no stress. I can not say enough, only I wish it went up to at least 5th or 6th grade.

Red Apple Lutheran School is the best. My 3 year old has a speech delay and I can't believe how much he has improved and has actually started talking! The curriculum is great and you can't ask for better teachers.

Red Apple School in Hurst, Texas was a positive experience for all 5 of my children. Two of which are currently in Jr. High and High School, 2 currently in 3rd Grade and 1 in 1st Grade public schools. My 1st Grader, just graduated from Red Apple in May 2007 and is at the top of her class. All of my children still love Red Apple and all of them are excellent students. The were taught a love for learning at this school. All 5 would love to come back to Red Apple, if only it went through High School...The Bruce's
