My three kids attended over a span of 17 yrs. I have one currently enrolled. During this time the school has changed in a positive direction as for curriculum and spiritual teaching. Wish there was more parent involvement for clubs and committees. Students are friendly & respectful. Teachers care about the kids and KNOW most of the children in the school. School has a strong family enviroment. Student know students from different grades and interact positively with each other. Really like that the children go to mass daily and participate in catholic traditions: benediction, may crowning, rosary, etc..

Amazing school. Have one kid currently in middle school and one has graduated from here. When my old school shut down a few years ago I first thought of sending my kids to Saint Leonard's School. Big Mistake! Went to open house and they were stuck up and way to strict. Your kids are locked onto there floor. It felt like a prison! Came to Odilo's open house and was very pleased. Staff was caring and down to earth and no locked floors! It just feels like a family! Very nice 7th and 8th Grade teachers! My daughter even said that she wants to send her kids here when she has them! SEND YOUR KIDS HERE!!!

I have two children at this school and they love it. Great support from staff and small class size. I know that my children are receiving an excellent education at St. Odilo.

I think the school has changed over the past few years.Maybe instead of taking my sons out of St.Odilo, we can work to get the school to the way it used to be.Most of the staff is good.The athletic dept. is terrible.I beleive the school has a family type community that is wonderful.

I'm worried about my children's Education. The School is in need of a Principal who can keep the teachers on their toes. Some teachers scream at the top of their lungs, and disrespect the children. They have been teaching the same way for so long, the children are not learning. They give an assignment and it doen't matter if the kids get it or not. It's just do it or else.

While this school has some great teachers and could be great, it is ruled by the church instead of the principle. My child made some life long memories and friends that I wouldn't trade for the world.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
