My kids like it here. Compared to the larger schools it wasn't really a big issue there, though at the previous school there were some issues with bullying. That is one of the main reasons why I took my kids out of public school and so far they have really felt the change, and they like it, and they love it.
I like how available and attentive the staff is here. If you have any concerns they will take the time to talk to you about them. And if they can't they will set up a time to meet with you. You can even send them an email and they get back to you quickly. You can usually find them after school to have some time to talk to them, if not you can set up a time easily.
The class sizes here are great, nice and small and I am happy with the teacher to student ratio. Overall I am very happy with the schooling here and the staff does a great job with the students.
I am a current student and have been attending Our Lady of Guadalupe School for the last eight years. I enjoy this school, they've shown me spiritual guidance and academically is preparing me to excel in high school.
I am an alumni of OLG & a teacher at OLG. The staff is dedicated to the education of the child as a whole. There is a strong sense of community I have not experienced at any other school.
Is is our first year at OLG and all I can say is it is WAY more than I could have ever expected from the leadership of the school, to the parent involvement, to the academics and extra curricular activities. When the school says it puts your child first, they truly mean what they say. It truly one of the best kept secret in Fremont. We were meant to be at this school.
OLG is a wonderful school. My son was there from Kindergarten through Second Grade and he had a great experience. Our family moved to South America this year but we have such good memories of this school. The principal and pastor are very good leaders and all the faculty and staff members are wonderful. There is a lot of parent involvement and a great sense of community. Kids receive a strong academic foundation and wonderful values. My son attends a new school now and is getting straight A's...I don't doubt we owe this to OLG who prepared him so well.
My youngest son joined OLG 2.5 years ago. OLG is an excellent school with so many great teachers, parents, and priests. I have not got such wonderful experience from my son s previous school and my other children's schools in the past.
I love the parent/community involvement, I feel my child is in a safe and loving learning enviroment. The teachers and staff are wonderful. My child loves gonig to school and that says a lot right there.
Our son has been there since kindergarden. the family values are wonderful. the parents are very thoughtful. Staff if very helpful.
Once again, the schoolyear is coming to an end and we leave behind another year of good memories shared with many families we've grown to be a part of. The feeling of belonging to a community, helping and supporting one another for the sake of our children is the key to the warmth of OLG. We've been here nine years and look forward to another seven years before our youngest graduates. If you look for a school concerned with the well being of your kids, their excellence in education and their growing faith in Christ, OLG it is. We have wonderful leaders in our principal and Parish pastor, a sincere, caring and well-qualified teachers and staff, a supportive parent body, Dominican sisters and our Church community. The kids have exposure to theater arts, CYO sports, and a music band program. They are also prepared for the rigors of high school.
I have three children at OLG and cannot imagine sending them anywhere else. We've been with the school for nine years and during this time we have seen a lot of changes, but the one thing that never changes is the strong sense of community at OLG. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved with the school. I am struck every year by the way the children from all grades know one another and show respect and affection for each other. It is common to see the junior high students helping the younger children, laughing with them, playing with them and caring for them.The staff is committed and the leadership shown by the current principal is outstanding. Attending OLG is like having an extended family.
We made the right choice! we have a son in kindergarten. As parents we see our son learning, growing and building his confidence! it's wonderful to watch. As parents we find the staff at OLG to be caring, intelligent and very passionate at what they do.
I have been a teacher at OLG for 3 years now, and I must say that I cannot imagine a more warm and caring environment for a student to attend school. The teachers and administrative staff work cohesively toward the goal of providing not only strong academics for its students, but a place of spiritual learning as well. I am proud to be a part of the OLG family.
I have two children at OLG. OLG reaches out to the school community and promotes involvement of the students and their families. The classes are small enough that teachers are able to work with the children as individuals. Teachers promote an environment filled with respect, responsibility and spirituality. The children enjoy being around caring adults and are encouraged to help each other when they can to ensure the success of the class. The curriculum challenges the students and provides them with tools to move on beyond OLG. The teachers provide resources and assistance for students who may be experiencing a little difficulty while also enabling advanced students to work at their knowledge level to make sure that they are continually challenged. They want to give the students every opportunity for success. OLG offers a solid curriculum and many extra-curricular activities that make the students well-rounded individuals ready for the next phase of their education in high school.
I have two children who graduated from Our Lady of Guadalupe School and went on to Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward. The education they received at OLG prepared them well to go on to Moreau. Every teacher and staff member in the school have the best interest of each student as their primary goal.The children are educated not only in curriculum subjects but also in areas to make them well rounded individuals. They are taught to respect each other, to resolve conflicts, to reach out to those less fortunate, to develop their talents, to participate in sports and to value friendships. Graduates often return to visit teachers or lend a hand when needed. What better tribute could ther be than that. Our Lady of Guadalupe School may be the best kept secret in Fremont, but it should not be. Its kudos should be shouted from the hilltops. Pass it on!
The community alone is amazing. The parents and teachers are on the same team focusing on the needs of each individual child.
OLG is Fremont's 'Best Kept Secret.' Amazing & dedicated staff who truly enjoy working with children and have their best interest in mind. Most importantly, the school understands that children have different learning styles and they embrace and accomodate these differences. The students are well mannered and respectful to eachother at every grade level. OLG is a very closely knit community where every child is made to feel welcome and cared for. My children ask to stay at school...even after the bell rings. Thank goodness for OLG.
I have 2 children at this school. They truly enjoy going to school every morning. They are both very good students which I believe came from the caring teachers and staff. The other day I got some additional satisfaction when I just happened to be in the hallway after school talking to the principal and the children exchanged hugs with a teacher nearby. I'm glad that they are in this type of caring environment.
