In 1966 there was no Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport, no Airport Freeway and no Northeast Mall. But there was a young Lutheran church in the midst of the farmland on a 2-lane Bedford-Euless Road. Several families at this young church, Peace Lutheran, began to discuss opening a school at their church and in September Red Apple School began with one half day kindergarten class of 20 children and one teacher. A second teacher was added the next year.
As the Northeast Tarrant County area continued to expand Red Apple School continued to grow as well and before long four-year-old classes were added to the program, then threes, then twos. From the beginning Red Apple School was established on the principles of academic excellence in a Christ-centered program that sees each student as a unique and special child of God. There have been many changes in the area, in the church and in the school since 1966, but the commitment to providing the best possible early childhood learning experience for young children and their families has remained the same.
