About the School:
Our Shepherd believes that small classes are more engaging places for students because students are able to have a more personal connection with the teacher. Small classroom sizes allow for in-depth projects, field trips, leadership opportunities and community service. Our average class size is 20 students.
Our Shepherd Lutheran School students is accredited at both state and national levels. We are recognized by the Michigan Association of Non-Public Schools, the Michigan District of Lutheran Schools and the National Lutheran School Accreditation.
Our Shepherd Lutheran School is a Christian day school for boys and girls preschool through eighth grade. At Our Shepherd, we know that every child is a gift from God, and we strive to make a positive difference in the life of every student. With an emphasis on academic and spiritual development, our rigorous curriculum and ancillary studies encourage each child to grown their faith by maximizing his or her own unique gifts and potential. Our Shepherd is a fully accredited exemplary Christian school.
We love when our upper grade students help the younger students with their hymnals. This is a special bond.
We have joined the "Food Revolution" and have done away with the processed lunches found at most schools. From the vibrant salad bar to the warm, hearty soups, the food served to the students at OSL is made fresh daily.
The large playground in a quiet, Birmingham neighborhood gives our children plenty of room to run, skip and jump. The completely fenced in soccer field, baseball diamond and large play structure are used daily.
