Have had my daughter there for 4 years now. Enrollment is down but I don't think ANY of the parents mind the extra attention that it allows our children from their teachers. This school not only teaches excellent academics, but has the most respectful, polite , caring and dedicated bunch of children and staff you could ever hope to surround yourself with. We as parents are encouraged and feel welcomed to be as involved in our childrens education as their own teachers are. The Parish looks forward to seeing all of our kids at mass on Friday mornings , in fact there are several parishioners who will only attend Fridays to see the kids say scriptures. My daughter has become such a joy to have around since she has started there. She has grown with these kids and has harvested friendships she will have for a lifetime. As far as the comment about the office staff and principal let me just say this.....We have made changes in the office since I enrolled my daughter there a few years ago but I can tell you that Mrs. Diaz de Leon, our principal & Mrs. Solis , our office superwoman, are there with an open door anytime you walk into that school and will drop anything to speak to a parent about their child. I have made an investment in my child by keeping her at this school and I am seeing my return on that investment every day.
I admit, enrollment has dropped but it hasn't taken away from the education that my child has gotten. I'd rather have a smaller class than an overwhelming one for my child any day of the week. His learning experience has been exceptional and the teachers have done a great job. Times are tough and not everyone can afford a Private School education but the school has held strong among trying financial times.
My kids have been going to this school for the past 3 years. Although there has been changes, all have been positive and my kids are getting the education they deserve. Their Catholic identity continues to grow stronger in faith every year. All these wonderful teachers including new are caring, loving, helpful, and devoted to inspire our kids to a better education. I am a very proud parent and feel very blessed to be part of this community.
This school has had a very big drop in enrollment and moral. It has a new principal and vice principal and has LOST much of its catholic identity. Years ago it had over 40 students in each class and it has less then 10 in the 6th grade class. All due to poor administration. It has lost lots of great teachers and parents. This year less then 160 students.
My girls love their school! From day one they continue to amaze us with the knowledge the attain! And at the same time,they are learning what it means to be a giving and loving human being thru their faith. All this and much more is taught to them everyday by their surroundings in the classroom, on the playground or just by walking down the halls. And they share this with other family and friends as well. We know we made the right decision for our childrens future and feel blessed everyday!
Since arriving here last year, I was immediately drawn in by the sense of family and community. At OLL, we strive to not only prepare our children academically but also to be respectful, caring people who are eager to serve those around them.
We are a great community of people. A very caring mixture of Children,Parents,Teachers and Staff. A great education means everything ,and this school provides it. My children have a wonderful start on a great education Thanks to the caring Teachers at OLL.
This school is a hidden jewel! The teaching staff are dedicated to getting the best out of their students. Advance Math is offered for students beginning 4th Grade Level. There is a very good sense of community in this school. Highly recommended!!!
In the past 5 years Our Lady of Lourdes School has been in the statewide Academic Decathlon finals twice, and placed First in the state in 2001! This school stresses academics and life long learning skills and has continuity with its teaching staff and administration. There is a sense of 'family' at this school. Both of my children graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes!
