Our family has been with OLF for over 3 years now. I must say that the school overall has an uncommonly warm and welcoming spirit about it. It is a faithfilled environment where the children have daily prayers, weekly Mass and where they practice traditional Catholic devotions/ceremonies with reverence (e.g. rosary, crowning of Mary, blessing of the animals, junior high retreats etc.). The teaching staff is made up of kind, intelligent and experienced teachers. There is an inclusion program, an advanced math program, music, art, technology, Spanish K-8th, jr. high electives, Christmas/Passion plays & Academic Decathlon program. The school participates in overnight programs such as the Pilgrim trip (in Dana Point)for 4th graders, retreats for 5th, 6th and 7th grades, and Washington D.C. for 8th graders. The small school environment allows students to be very active in sports, student council, peace patrol, altar serving / readers, etc.
