It is a wonderful school that is continually looking to improve itself. This past year they built a new library and I understand that they are going to be purchasing smart boards for nearly all of the classrooms. It seems that they are looking to provide the best possible learning environment for the students.
I have three kids in OLOL and I couldn't be happier with the school. As with all kids, mine have different abilities and skill sets. The teachers at OLOL take the time to understand what each of my kids need to excel at learning.
Lourdes is a wonderful school with a wonderful school community. The teachers are there because they really care about the kids. Our entire family feels apart and that gives you a sense of safety and security you don't get at a public school. My children are not only getting the academics but they are building a foundation to be a good and moral person. Something you can't teach at a public school because it might 'offend' someone...I know because I taught in one! As for going to mass....it is a Catholic school and I think they learn wonderful things bing a part of mass...each grade is a part of mass and right there they are learning about public speaking as little as 1st grade. I can't say enough a bout the good feelings I have for OLOL and we 'choose' to send our kids there over MF.
Our Lady of Lourdes is a fantastic school. I think the students get a better education than in public schools. And it is a VERY safe school. But, I do think they make the students go to mass too often. For example, the junior high students (6-8) have to go to mass TWICE a week! By the time they get to be adults, they won't want to go anymore! But, other than that Our Lady of Lourdes is a great school.
