Onahan is the perfect fit for my children. The wonderful staff keeps in touch with the parents. They go out of their way to find ways to teach our kids. The math and science programs are wonderful. My children love doing their homework and putting extra effort into everything they do. Onahan is a great school in the community which holds events throughout the year for both young and old alike. The school really reaches out to the parents to stay involved with their kids on all levels. The principal and her staff always are available for any questions or comments. They take great pride in teaching our children to be America's future.
The teachers are well trained and know our children well. With over 600 children in the school it is very nice to see that the children are know by the office and lunch room staff as well as the teachers. The PTA is very active. My kids enjoy going to school. They are learning a lot and interested in working hard at their studies.
I have never meet a more caring, unselfish,and dedicated grp of parents and teachers who only have the kids of Onahan in mind. Even though it is over crowded, the teachers do such a remarkable job that it does not even phase or take away frm the teaching and learning that is happening at Onahan.. Go Lions!!!!!!
The teachers are excellent. They care about our children and do anything for them. The school has high standards and expectations of our children. My oldest child graduated from Onahan very prepared for her high school honors classes. My younger children love to go to school everyday. Onahan is a safe and happy community.
This is a terrific neighborhood school....kids enjoy it and get a great education. I would love to see some after school fine arts programs added if the funds were there....
Onahan is a Great School, The Teachers are the best. They care about the students as if the are their own kids. You walk into Onahan School and you feel so comfortable its like being at home. The Parents involement with the school is unbelievable.The school has the best PTA ever.
The most important part of our school is the Teachers and Students. They have done well in our all of the testings. We do not receive a lot of help from the city financially which is unfortunate. We are a forgotten neighborhood. We are not poor enough but we are not rich enough either. We have one of the best Parent Participation in our school and I really believe with all the hard work they do to get the school what they need should be recognized. At this point our Principal barely has enough money to buy school books. And with the economy the way it is, many of the private schools are to expensive and our public school is now busting out of it's seams. The principle needs extra help to buy books and basic needs for the school. Our Parents have vowed to help!!
My daughter can't wait to get up and go to school everyday - she has loved every teacher she has had so far...what more could a arent ask for?
This is a great school that can be even greater with additional funding. I've met some wonderful students, teachers,staff and parents at this school.
Onahan is an amazing school. Staff, administration, parents and kids. Our academics, athletics and overall neighborhood atmosphere make this a great school!
My children receive an excellent education at Onahan. The Onahan community is awesome too, from the principal and staff, down to the parent and students. We enjoy meeting with everyone both in and out of school!
Such a great community school, unbelievable staff that not only give our kids a wonderful education, but teach them how fun learning can be.
It is the entire Onahan community that I love. The teachers and staff really care about the kids. The PTA works hard at getting the entire school family to get involved. When children are supported by their entire community, they thrive!
I think the school is great. The teachers care about the children and great communication with the parents. The principal is great, the staff in general are great and friendly too.
I love how far we have come and how great we are now. The families are welcoming, loving, caring &supportive!
This school is brillant. After wasting my time at a catholic school I cannot believe how qualified and caring the teachers are at Onahan. They are so approachable and get back to you right away if you have any concerns. They do not tolerate bullying of any kind and because of this the children are so nice to each other. I just love this school. I love the principal Mrs. Koegler - she is such a kind, caring person and the kids love her. You can see how much she cares when she cant even get through her graduation speech with the 8th graders without crying. It amazes me how different all the teachers techniques are and how they make the subjects so interesting and challenging. It really shows they care. Great school - so happy we are here!
I am blown away by how advanced the academics are here at Onahan. Friends who are in the same grades in various Catholics schools in the area have not even begun to cover what my children have already completed. The parents and teachers are very supportive. And, as the previous review stated, just take a look at the test scores and obviously the staff is doing something right. Unfortunately there are parents out there who feel that their children do no wrong and those are the ones who are crying about the school being 'strict'. They are as strict as they should be so that the students are not running the school as I am sure those same children of the complaining parents are running their household.
