We are vey happy with OLOV. It is academically rigorous with a focus on community and instilling good work habits and a strong moral compass. There are wonderful enrichment activities such as chess club and sports. Children go from grade to grade with the same group instilling a sense of security. Younger students have older student buddies. They participate in community service (food drives, visiting SeaCrest nursing home, etc) enhancing students understanding of community and volunteerism. Your child will really feel like a part of the community. 8th graders from the school greet Kindergarteners by name when they see then in town. The good manners shown by the older students is wonderful and the little ones beam with pride that the older students care about and respect them. The bottom line must always be the academics. At OLOV children come ready to learn and be challenged and parents support that goal. This is what sets OLOV apart and makes it worth every penny. We researched extensively before choosing this school. You can call the Archdiocese of Hartford to get the test scores for Catholic schools. OLOV had the strongest scores of 4 schools we considered.

My daughter went to the Pre-K at OLOV for both the 3 year old & 4 year old program. It was a wonderful experience! For a class of about 10 her first year & about 15 her second year she had 2 loving teachers (one teacher & an aid actually). Ms. Maureen & Ms. Michelle are wonderful teachers, very patient & caring & they children learn & play in a safe environment. I look forward to my younger daughter attending when she is old enough.

I love Our Lady of VIctory because it is really like a family. They take interest in what you have to say. The classes aren't too big and the faculty is wonderful!

I'm a father of two OLOV students currently enrolled. The schools largest weakness without a doubt is the lack of leadership. Coupled with a lack of enthusiasm and dedication. This wonderful school could be greatly improved if placed under new leadership. The current principal, Mrs. Bartolotta and Father Joe, leave much to be desired. OLOV has an excellent, dedicated staff of teachers who are second to none and there is tons of parental envolvement.

We pulled our child from this school because of problems with the current principal. We simply wanted some questions we had answered and she flatly refused. While we miss the community and many of the excellent teachers, the principal's attitude and performance drove us out.

This school is average at best. Tuition is $1000 more per year than the other private school in town. Spanish teacher is new and amazing!! They cannot hold on to a principle, they had a great one a few years back, he was here for one year then left. Now one of the teachers filled in, which was supposed to be temporary, and is now leading the school. Now the politics are worse than before.

I have 3 ELL children and all staff and principal have been amazing. This is a wonderful Catholic school with a very family-oriented culture.

This is an excellent school for building community, responsibility and academic learning. The teachers are wonderful. Limited language, music, art but lots of sports. Great parent involvement.
