Grateful to: School leader
November 19, 2015
I am greatful to Ms. Eileen Ryan for her many years (around 30) of leadership/service. Her kindness to parents and children alike. She has a knack for picking superior teachers and staff. He amazing gift of knowing each child by name and always taking the time to walk around the campus and greet them, inquiring how they are doing. Her high level of integrity and ethics. Our children are not only getting a great education but are being raised to be confident, kind, faith filled young adults thanks her her leadership. She has an open door policy and welcomes everyone to stop by and chat about concerns (no issue is to big or small) or to simply say hello. We are truly blessed :).

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

I believe having a faith based school is an added blessing. You have peace of mind that your values are shared throughly out your child's day at school with their teachers.

On any given day you will see our principal walking the campus addressing each child by their name asking how they are doing? Truly caring what they have to say.

We have some children with bigger challenges than others and the school does a beautiful job of teaching our children to include all and always remember we are all children of God.

OLQA is that school you always hope to find - I only wish I had found it earlier. Their program is not only enriching from a learning perspective but the program and leadership is focused on the well being of the students. I am not only super impressed with the academics but the quality of care, attention and genuinely quality students. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that you have your child in the best possible hands and this is the place- amazing school!!

OLQA is a great school in all means. Loving and caring environment. The administrator is very capable and accessible. Some teachers have been there for many years, some are new but their quality are exceptional. Many young teachers moved related to their family/personal, doesn't justify the ability of the administrator. Learning experience are exceptional. This is our third year. We love this school!

After transferring our daughter from an Irvine public school to OLQA, we couldn't be happier. The Principal, faculty, and administration have been amazing. The transition was very smooth, and our daughter now looks forward to going to school.

we are very pleased to have become a part of the OLQA family! Exceptional teachers so far! (The classroom "bully" in my son's class is no longer at the school, and we are pleased with the Administration's careful responsiveness to this sensitive issue.)

very disappointed with their lack of anti bullying policy. They need to adopt a stronger stance. Academically, they need to improve in the areas of math and Spanish. The majority of the graduating 8th grade class were required to repeat algebra I and start at level one in Spanish in high school.

We have found the school to be strong in all areas. The families are welcoming and the administration very capable. We are proud to be a part of the OLQA family.

We spent 7 years at this school in the hopes it would improve due to the financial and hands on parental support. We were sorely disappointed on so many levels and left to go to another area Catholic school. We have been much happier and want you to know that not all Catholic schools are the same; even though they are under the same diocese. Ask around and don't be afraid to go somewhere else. Specifically, the administration is sorely lacking in leadership. There is a high teacher turnover, as well as student turnover. Mediocrity reigns.

Quality of academics: Strong in English (Grammer and Literature), Math, Spanish and Religion. Needs improvement in Social Studies and Science. Science program has a good lab and equipment, but would've liked to have seen more hands on learning. Music, art, sports: Music program good. Only instruments are bells and recorders, but children learn more about music than just simply singing songs. Art program good with parent volunteers leading monthly program. Parent involvement: Huge. Each family must volunteer 40 hours per year. There is ample opportunity to volunteer and is a great way to stay connected to the school. You also have the option to pay instead of volunteering.
