All five of my children went to OLPH school. They all excelled in High School. This is a great school where your child can learn academicly as well as spritualy. Teachers not affraid to challange students to be the best they can be. Best school in Ewa Beach.

It's a great school to place your children in if you are looking for a school that teaches christian values and academics at the same time.

My son scored 2148 on his SSAT in November. He has been attending OLPH since Kindergarten and will be graduating this year. We are grateful for the teachers and the principal who helped him throughout the years.

I can honestly say that many things are lacking in this school. First and biggest thing is the lack of approachability of the principal. Most parents are afraid to approach her and tell her what they really think because of the fear of offending a religious. Most texts are old, some even 20 years old! Many of the computers used at the school are extremely old, most are obsolete. Athletic program is incredibly weak, due to a lack of appropriate coaching in all sports as well as a lack of support from admin. Another thing that occurs often is impromptu school gatherings called by the principal which cuts into instruction time. PE classes should be held at appropriate times during the day depending on the age of the class. Discipline is sketchy at best, minor infractions get major consequences and vice versa.

I graduated from OLPH a few years ago, and I can honestly tell you that OLPH is not a very good school. Maybe now it is different, but I cannot be too sure. When I was there, the teachers were nice; however, their teaching methods were not great. When I went into a public high school (not Campbell), I struggled during the first semester; I did not know how to write a well-written research essay, even when I graduated OLPH as a salutatorian. My younger sister also attended OLPH, but when I went to high school, she transfered to another Catholic-private school; she said that OLPH did not prepare her for anything. Some teachers at OLPH should learn how to teach their material. Even though this school is Catholic, there should be more time with subjects rather than religion.

My child went to this school and the one thing I love about is the morals it teaches, however the school is not prepared to help a child that really needs to be pushed or tutored. It is good for the smart kids who excel but not a good school that helps kids get buy, they pretty much expect the parent to teach the child at home. I

I have went to this school for 9 years and i loved it!! it was awesome! This school has been my whole life..It provides everything for you..it's totally awesome..when you come from a Public School, you'll think it is the most boringist school ever because it's too small and the principle is very strict but she does it to make us realize what we have done good and what we have done bad..It's a really small school but you learn to live with it in hope, happiness, adn fun..

My daughter has attended this school for seven years and it's the best around here. The principal is a strict disciplinarian, yet she does it with love for the student. Since it's a small school, the staff knows all the kids. You won't find the latest of the latest here. The tuition is one of the lowest on the island, and yet our sutdents are still able compete with any other school. There is a waiting list for this school, but trust me, its worth the wait.

Provides a challenging, solid education in an environment that facilitates spiritual growth. A variety of extra-cirricular activities and sports, esp for the size of the school. Small size leads to a close knit school community. Be prepared to be nickel and dimed, though. Mandatory fundraising (or donation), and several other optional fundraising events. I found it to be worth it, however. This school is the total package. Children are respectful at school and academic excellence is the standard. Cannot be matched (or even close) by Hawaii public school system.

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.
