I love this school. I took my son out of public school because he was doing poorly. It was the best decision I made. My son made the honoroll for te first time in his life. He is doing so much better academically. I am very happy with OLQOM! His teacher keeps me informed about his progress on a regular basis. I would recommend this school to anyone who needs their child to improve.

My son attended OLQM. I am very satisfied with the school performance academically and spiritually. The school really helped my child to feel confident, building on his strengths and help him with weaker areas in positive ways. Definitely, OLQM prepared my son in mind and spirit to live his live full of hope, joy, and peace, no matter what challenges he meet.

I am a parent at the school and I have two children enrolled. My third child has already graduated. I am happy to say the teachers and principal are excellent. They truly care about my children an lead by example. The changes made to round of the school and the new bathrooms are amazing. The facelift is fantastic with more to come. The middle school teacher challenge the students and provide excellent preparation for entry into Catholic high schools. I am very happy with OLQM.

I love this school! This is my daughter's first year (K) and I couldn't be happier with her academic progress. Her teacher is great and the school principal is very involved. I also love the diversity of the school. I don't think you would get this at any other private school in the area.

I am a current parent. My child has been at this school for 3 years. I can never say enough about how hard this staff works for treating the whole child, from their baisc needs to their educational needs. OLQM is really a best kept secret in terms of the students that they produce. I am always proud to tell people where my child goes to school because I want others to really know just how outstanding the school is. Like most schools as a parent you MUST be invlolved if you really want your child to succeed. Your child's teacher should know who you are without asking everytime they see you and at OLQM, I feel very much at home. Thank you Mrs. Mossop, Father Hoyer, and now Father Jorge.

Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Fort Lauderdale is really great! The children get an excellent education with a solid christian foundation. And, you cant beat the price! After the first kid, all the others are half price! In this economy, this makes a huge difference in a family's budget. Thanks OLQM! I have 3 little ones, so do the math.

I can't say enough positive thoughts about OLQM. The teachers really care, they are really focused on the children as individuals. If you are a concerned parent, they take time with you. I involve myself as much as possible because I fully support the school and it's efforts for their students. If you don't get involved (and that's at any school), you may not optimize your child's learning experience and subsequently blame the teachers/school for something that may have been prevented if you kept on top of things.

Both of my children attend OLQM and have attended for the last 2 years. We wouldn't have it any other way, this school is excellent! The teachers are loving and really care for the children.

My daughter attended OLQM since kindergarten. Her experience has fully prepared her for high school and she is done well adjusting, educationally and socially. My 3-year-old son is not attending OLQM and I cannot say enough how much he has learned in the last two years. The teachers and staff are dedicated to the children and always available when needed.

This school is a joke! They have almost no communication unless its about fundraising or money. Maybe 1 or 2 teachers even really care at this school. We have had our children insulted. They will make you so sorry you even tried a private school!

Olqm is a nice quiet school where the main focus is both academic, social and moral all tied into one. There team has been together for quite a while. Fr. Hoyer and mrs. Mossop are the best!!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
