I also withdrew my kids from Our Lady of the Lakes. My oldest graduated from the school years ago, and unfortunately under this administration, my younger ones are not thriving in the same way. The principal has socialist views, and can not speak publicly without insulting everyone in the room. The assistant principal serves as a part of the office staff, never greeting parents or interacting with the children. The treatment to most of the parents that have carried that school financially for years is deplorable! I have actually had the assistant principal roll her eyes at me! Basically this school has NO DISCIPLINE plan for the kids or parents! The administrators turn parents against teachers, teachers against teachers, and teachers against parents. . A GOOD SCHOOL GONE BAD BECAUSE OF TERRIBLE MANAGEMENT! The two administrators and the priest are not AT ALL involved in the kid's lives. the office staff is a bunch of neurotic women who treat everyone rudely! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL! Everyone is miserable! The wonderful things that I remember about Our Lady of the Lakes no longer exist., not even something as simple as the library! My kids will be going elsewhere!
I'm happy we moved our children to another school. They need to put a stop to allowing parents in the school is not SAFE any more, the curriculum is very Poor.
OLL is an excellent school. The Administration, teachers, staff, and parents provide a strong, balanced academic, nurturing and spiritual environment. I would highly recommend this school to all that are looking for excellence in a Catholic education.
OLL is an excellent school! I have been in the school for 7 years. It is a school that shows leadership and a great foundation for our Catholic faith. The teachers and administration are warm. I am very happy with the school.
My oldest child has been going to this school for 7 years. It is a school that shows the foundation for the Catholic faith as well as the tools needed for education for the rest of their school years. It is a great school.
OLL is an excellent school. The teachers, parents, and staff provide a loving, nurturing and spiritual environment. I would highly recommend this school to all that are looking for excellence in education.
OLL is a loving school that has a team of faculty that teaches from the heart.
Our Lady of the Lakes is worth every penny. It is an investment in the future of our children that definitely pays off. I have two students currently in the school, one in Middle School and one in Elementary. In addition, I have an older child that graduated and is now a sophomore in high school and doing extremely well because of the foundation and challenging curriculum she experienced at OLL. It is also a community where catholic values are not only taught but lived daily. Children learn that every content area is tied to our faith and to the good we can pass on and be for others.
Best school ever, the new priest and the new faculty is top notch, they even have 3 baseball teams for 3rd grade thru 8th grade that play other schools in the area.
This is a terrible school. If you are not in the "parent click" they discriminate against you especially in 5th grade. I have never seen that at any other school. The boy scouts are a disgrace. The father who leads that is no role model. They need to put a stop to allowing parents in the school to pick up their kids. They stand around gossiping seems like they are the ones in school.
I graduated from Our Lady of the lakes last year. My siblings still attend the school. I had straight A's in middle school, yet when i entered high school i felt COMPLETELY UNPREPAIRED. I still have that feeling. Our Lady of the Lakes, yes, is a fun and family oriented school. But, its curriculum is not strong enough to prepare a student for success in highschool. :( freshman year i am doing poorly, but i really am studing very hard.
Our Lady of the Lakes is not only a school it's family... the best decision I've made for my children's education is putting them in this school! The teachers are the best, they go above and beyond for the students. I look forward to the years ahead!! =)
I am very happy to have two children attending this school. The education, discipline, and staff are outstanding. It is wonderful to have my children learning about their faith as well as receiving great academic skills. Everyone from the students, parents, teachers, even the maintenance and cafeteria workers make this place feel like home, it is a family and God is in the center of it.
As a parent with two boys attending OLL, I am very happy and pleased with the stability the school seems to have. The school has turned the corner and is focussed on spirituality and academics. What more can a pernt ask for. The school offers something for everyone. Parent involvement is second to none. I am very happy my sons attend there!
Our daughter attends OLL and we are pleased with the academics and the overall environment at the school. The whole school staff is great, accessible and diligent when you approach them looking for feedback and guidelines. It's great environment for your kids to be in, and transparency is part of their dinamics....they walk what they talk!
Our Lady of the Lakes is the perfect school for parents who are looking to place their children in a family, loving environment. Children here not only gain academically but also on a spiritual and emotional level. The school allows for moms and dads to play a big role in the children's school functions which I treasure dearly. It's great to be part of this family.
As a parent, I believe that my children are receiving the best education that a parent could ever ask for. I am truly blesssed to be able to have my children attending the school that I work. I as a parent can see that all the teachers at OLL are doing their best to ensure all children receive an excellent education, both spiritual and academic.
Our Lady of the Lakes catholic School is definitely a home away from home for my children. I have the peace of mind knowing that I am leaving them in warm, caring, safe, responsible hands that will watch over them during the school day. The faculty and curriculum challenge children to push themselves to achieve the best they can and then a little more. All faculty and staff are open to parents and to working as a team and are easily accessible via e-mail. As a parent, I can actively participate in my children's classrooms, school events, and even church events. It is definitely a great place to grow and learn and be part of a great family!
My three daughters attend this school and I feel very blessed that they are being taught by very loving, kind and patient teachers. I also love that parents can participate in organized crafts and family get-togethers as well as occassional field trips.
I love the family oriented environment that this school brings to our children. They are growing up in a healthy environment and that gives me piece of mind.
