We have three children at OLPH and are extremely appreciative that they are there. The principal, teachers and staff are amazing caring people. Our children truely enjoy going to school at OLPH. They are being challenged academically, are learning more about their Catholic faith with each passing day and are encouraged to participate in activities within the school community to make them a well rounded individual. They are also learning how to give back to their community by the example that is being set for them by their teachers. OLPH is an environment we know are children are thriving in. Thank you Mrs. McMains, teachers and staff!

We are elated to have our daughters at OLPH. We had our daughters in a public elementary school and had to make a decision as to which middle school they would be attending. We have made the right choice and wish we would have started them earlier. This school is amazing. They are preparing them academically and spiritually. The priest, principal, teachers, and staff have made us feel as party of the family.

What an amazing school. When I moved to Downey my top priority was to find a school that my family would become a part of and we found it. It is providing my children with an excellent academic education and formation. The principal, teacher, and staff are amazing.

I love to hear the children talk about their school. They love the teachers who are caring and loving, values, faith and caring for others are emphasized, the website keeps getting better every day! The principal gives her heart and soul to the school. Who wouldn't want to send their kids there?? Yes, they could use air conditioning...but cost is a huge consideration. With all the problems facing CA and the public school system, OLPH is the best!

OLPH is a great school. Students excel academically while being taught our Catholic faith. The teachers are experienced and open to all learning styles. Graduates attend competitive Catholic high schools around Southern California. Our children have made friends for a life time at OLPH.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
