We are new here and for the amount of money you spend, you are better off putting your child in District 16 or Vail Schools. The environment is strict , not a variety of programs, parents develop clique groups so this makes it hard for new families. Sports program is poor; need equipment and new instructor. No library. They did spend money on smart boards, however. The academic standard is not very high. Lunches are expensive; a lot of old school teaching. No welcoming commitee for new families not even from parish.
I agree completely with the 'February 2005' comments, my son must be in the same grade. We have been going there for 8 years. It's like you read my thoughts. There are many nice people there, but some of the teachers really do play favorites, which makes it hard on the kids. I can also think of several parents that also make it tough for the kids. I'm very hopeful this year, we have a new principle who seems great and several of the problem teachers have left, so maybe next year I will tell you how great a year it was. Thanks.
I am an OMOS alumni and I loved my experience there. When my son was starting 1st grade I could not think of a better school to send him to. He was blessed with a fantastic teacher and he looks forward to going to school everyday. The cost is pretty high, but how can you put a price on your childs future?
Simply the best! Academics at a very high level and standard. Great to see such well mannered and disciplined children. Level of parent involvement is phenomenal! All extracurricular activities add to the pleasantness of the obvious importance of family values, morals and respect. Our family has sacrificed in order to be able to provide this kind of education to our two daughters and has been well worth the monitary value! I hope that more families can experience such a blessing with being able to their child with a religious education. Sincerely, OMOS Parent
I feel my child going to OMOS was a great opportunity but the tuition was not able to be met.Otherwise I feel it's a great school and my child made alot of new friends.
My child went to Our Mother Of Sorrows School for 3 years. It is a fine school. They have high academic standards and a safe learning environment. I thought however that they were a little too strict when it came down to dicipline. It is very important to me that my childs behaves and follows rules. However at this school I felt like they often made a big deal out of every little thing. I also did not like the fact that the school did not have a cafeteria. My child always had to eat outside and never had enough time to eat lunch.
We have been going there for 6 years and this has been the worst year ever. Some of the teachers are rude and they play a lot of favortism. They seen to pick a few students at the beginning to pick on and continue thru the whole year. Their are a lot of great people there. But there are also several parents that are such snobs! they think that they run the place. I think if a some of the teachers and some of the students left, the school would be better. Good luck if you choose this school.
My children are receiving a quailty education while having a wonderful experience. Our Mother of Sorrows has a family atmosphere where support comes from staff and parents.
My Granddaughter attends this school. I think they have done a good job as far as her learning is concerned.
