The sudden surge in enrollment a few years ago, and then the dramatic decline of almost 50 % since is very telling of "someting" seriously wrong with the school. Taking " Our Lady" out of the title and simply calling it "Lourdes Classical" isn't honoring Our Lady or making the Catholic faith the m8st important part of your school as you claim. You shouldn't do this to Our Blessed Mothet.

Lourdes Classical is all about seeking virtue and goodness based on western civilization and good solid teaching long lost years ago in the public schools. It is vastly different than other diocese schools in that it is the only classical school in the system. Mass everyday for middle school students and 2 times a week for the other grades sets the proper tone for all. It is a place where students are taught virtuous living, solid core basics and a method that encourages critical thinking, and leadership skills while being faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. It is a very UNcommon core and much needed!


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
The Classical model ignites a child's natural desire to seek out the good and virtuous.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
Trained in theology and all have Masters Degrees. They are on fire for their faith and for their profession.

Transitioning into classical education ruined the school. I do not feel that this classical education is the way to go. I let my kids experience that education for a year before we decided to go somewhere else.Because of that year of transitioning into classical education my children were behind at their new school .Be prepared to pay for tutors if you decide to let your children attend this school. Do your research before you think classical education is the way to go. Plus new administration would help out a lot too.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

Pretty sure the oldest teacher there is mid 20's they don't really know anything, fresh out of college. What happened to the experienced teachers? A young fresh look isn't always the way to go.

The "Classical" education that is advertised at this school is not fundamentally different that the curriculum at any other K-8 school in the Archdiocese.

Our children are now in their 4th year at OLOL. The transition to the Classical education model was a difficult one at first, but well worth the time and effort. Unfortunately there was some attrition during the transition, but I feel that many of the parents that transferred their children out, did so due to the more challenging academic requirements for the new model. I heard parents that were leaving complaining about the new Principal and teachers, but feel that it was a convenient cover. Catholic faith is a common and emphasized thread that runs throughout all course curriculum and the addition of a latin class was HUGE. The classes are challenging, but the teachers are willing to work with all students to help them "catch up" or understand confusing topics. If you want your child to have a well-disclipined, but still nuturing environmemt, with a good foundation to transtition to high school, then this is your place.

Unfortunately this school was a great disappointment. The claims were quite an embellishment. Good luck to all.



- a parent
This is our sixth year at OLOL and we love it! The teachers are welcoming and have passion for teaching kids. I feel that they are really there for the kids. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a smaller educational experience. I love the fact that the eighth graders know who the preschool and Kindergarten kids are and they look out for them - most schools do not allow the higher grades to interact with the younger classes. We have such a warm and open community.
