I think Our Lady of Angels School is doing an outstanding job in every department.The academics are extremely challenging and doing a great job preparing our kids for the higher levels of learning .The kids are motivated, well versed in whatever subject they're studying and excited about learning.Great academics all the way through 8th grade.One of the most impressive aspects of OLA is their religious training.Fire and Brimstone is gone. Fr.Michael is at the helm and we couldn't be happier.The love of God and the respect towards our faith is so evident at all the school liturgies. So impressed by the way religion is being taught and the manner in which the kids practice their beliefs. All in all OLA has it all.They have first class teachers on all levels, a fabulously engaging and ever- present principal and a religious staff that is one of the best on the Peninsula.So pleased.
Personally, I think this schools is best catholic school in the penninsula and San Francisco. The teachers are extremely open to all students and they encourage you to succeed. Academics, Sports, and Religion are all prominent aspects in the school enviornment. This school was a great fit for me and prepared me for high school!
This school is outstanding. I love the environment for the children. This school definitely puts children first. The parent involvement is wonderful and very inclusive to new parents. The one thing the school lacks is enrichment programs. It would be nice to see ethnic dance classes, science consultants, architect consultants, etc. Overall, this school was the best choice for our family.
If you are looking for religion first and foremost, then this school is for you. If education is more important, then stay away. Class sizes in younger grades are much too large. Bullying is a huge problem. Poor leadership and low teacher retention. There are many issues at this school; parents are very involved but powerless to change things.
