Outstanding school! Much more academically oriented than surrounding public schools which by the way are good which makes OLV a "gem". All the kids that attend seem to be a part of a large family. Great environment to send your kids to for school and church!. Older kids mentor younger kids through various programs and activities. This school is simply the best around. Well worth the investment.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Mild bullying if at all. Have not heard of any cases.


Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
As a parent with a child with a learning difference the school was very proactive in assisting my child with alternative learning methods. Teachers seem to care that students learn in alternate ways. That's not to say its every teacher every time but once they were able to get to know your child the teacher was able to accommodate

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Christian principles are cornerstone! Great environment for kids even through middle school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Excellent teachers that seem to really care about ALL students. There may be an exception or two yet as a whole the teachers collectively are A+++


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Heavy on homework for some classes yet if you continue to be the best you must instill strong academics education of the whole student.

Our Lady of the Valley is a two time recipient of the U.S. Dept. of Education Blue Ribbon School of Excellence award. The children that attend this school are well prepared for high school.

OLV is an outstanding school. Our children were incredibly well prepared for high school academically, socially and spiritually. The sense of community is wonderful and parents, teachers and students really support and care for one another. We are blessed to have had our children at OLV.

Our Lady of the Valley School has won the nation's top honor, the Blue Ribbon, twice. It is the only Catholic school to ever accomplish it even once. The community is a terrific community of parents, students, faculty and staff. It is not unusual to see faculty at OLV drama, sporting events, and other activities supporting the students. Parents are an integral part to the success of the school, assisting in many facets of education and extracurricular activities. Athletically, the school competes in the "Toy Bowl" against other Catholic schools, and has excelled in all sports, which begin in the 1st grade. I really like that, as in public schools students have to wait until 7th grade to compete. Science Olympiad has been nationally recognized; the OLV Drama Department has won national awards, and the academic and extracurricular activities are simply top-notch. The Principal is retiring this year after 19 years, and the school conducted a nationwide search to attract an outstanding Catholic educator to be new Principal. Change brings about opportunity, and I have no doubt OLV will continue to thrive. I have had 5 children there 19 years total and look forward to two more.



- a
OLV offers a wonderful community where parents, students, and teachers support and care about one another. As the parent of two alumni, I can say that OLV graduates are incredibly well prepared for high school not only academically, but also spiritually. They are provided with an outstanding moral and faith foundation.
