Homework is made too easy and is not helping the students to really master the material. But this may not be the teacher's fault. Too many parents seem more worried about ensuring their child doesn't spend any time at home doing homework instead of worrying about how much of the lesson from class they remember.
Sadly school seems more interested in telling you how great they are instead of actually becoming decent. The students do not get challenged and the big programs they tell you about are really not well developed or executed. It was a big disappointment
As a parent I am so happy with the education my children are receiving. I have children in middle school, elementary, and preschool and I couldn't be more pleased with the time and attention the teachers put into quality lessons, interactive experiences, and individual learning needs. I am ecstatic that we are a STEM school and have been impressed with the integration of STEM into the classroom. My children come home excited about what they learned in school and are eager for the next lesson.
One of the best things about OLPH is the family environment and the feeling of security knowing my children are with educators who truly care about them. My children love learning about their faith and I love the Christ Centered environment. I also love all of the extra curricular activities available including Tech Club, Dance, Academic Decathlon, Sports, and Choir.
This school has a wonderful faith-filled community, rigorous academics, great staff and administration, and supportive parents and families. There is a new STEM initiative which is increasing students' exposure to technology and engineering in the classroom and will prepare students for jobs in the 21st century.
I have 2 Middle School aged children who attend Our Lady of Perpetual Help School. Both of my children have received an exceptional education at Our Lady. They have an accelerated program taught by great teachers who enhance the curriculum with exciting hands on and STEM experiences! Both of my children have thrived at this School and I highly recommend this wonderful school for all children!
