About Our School

Mission Statement

Our school's mission is to assist families in providing a Christ-centered education which prepares students to serve the Lord faithfully. We are a member of the WELS - the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, headquartered in Wisconsin and sharing Jesus throughout the world to all tribes and nations!

The parents, students, and teachers of Peridot-Our Savior's Lutheran Elementary School, in obedience to our Lord's command to bring the children up in the training and instruction of the Lord, seek to lead our children to:

  • COME to hear the Gospel message.
  • FOLLOW Christ in living their faith.
  • GO and share the Gospel with others.

Principal's Welcome

On behalf of the entire Peridot-Our Savior’s family, I want to extend a warm welcome to you. Thank you for visiting our website.

The site will give you a glimpse into our school’s values and history and I encourage you to visit these pages. I am proud of these aspects of Peridot-Our Savior’s, but what really excites me about this school is the transformative power of God’s love that changes the hearts of both student and adult. In the years that I have been privileged to serve at Peridot-Our Savior’s, I have witnessed the significant way in which the Word of God has strengthened young hearts and minds for life in this world and in the world to come. Graduates return year after year to tell us about the positive impact of their experience, as well as their parents thanking us for helping them start their children off with a strong Christian base to build their lives upon

Peridot-Our Savior’s is an Education Scholarship Account (ESA) school in addition to providing non-ESA students with STO information to help offset their tuition. Students are taught by dedicated, faithful Christian teachers. To maintain high standards of Christian excellence, all teachers are members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) and certified to teach by the WELS Commission on Lutheran Schools.

We are excited to continue our partnership with parents in Christian education for years to come. I would be happy to talk with you about our school, our programs, and our teachers.
