For my middle school child, the school is not worth the money. I wish I had another option as this point. The new Middle School math teacher is one of the most immature and unprofessional teachers I have dealt with. The children need to prepare for their end of course assessment. They will be ill-prepared because of her. I hope the principal, administration, school board realize this asap. The fate of too many children's futures are at stake.
I have 2 children that attended OLG, things were good until Middle School. The principal allowed the teachers to walk all over him and allowed children, especially from certain families to get away with things that were unacceptable. The religious program may have taught religion but certainly did not display Christian attitudes and the religious leaders of the church did not display good behaviour for the children to look up to. The past middle shcool teachers (I think many in the middle school have retired now) were the worst bullies to the children, many times right in front of administration and nothing was done except comments made by the administration that the teacher's behavior was not exceptable. My children have lost much of their Catholic faith due to the actions of the teachers and the examples they saw from the religious leaders of the church and the way the church treated those in need yet spent money not approved by finance commities for housing for the leaders of the church.
The education is excellent. Teachers are really good. Administration is not good. Principal doesn't know how to handle bullying issues. The principal and school admin bully some parents. My child goes there for the education but don't expect a great principal or admin. Never thank parents for volunteering. Need a policy for bullying. Principal is nice but lacks skills of being a principal.
Great environment with excellent teachers. In a time when foreign language, art and music are being phased out due to budget cuts, OLG has been able to provide their students a balanced and challenging curriculum with the above mentioned specials. It is not a coincidence that it was named a Blue Ribbon school in 2010.
OLG is an amazing school. I have two children at the school. One in Kindergarten and my oldest in 4th grade. Both are autistic and the schools special needs teacher and staff go above and beyond making sure all the boys needs are met daily. The school staff and families are truly a family. They are always there in good times and bad times to assure your child is getting the best education. I highly recommend this school!
I have 2 children who are in the elementary grades and although they LOVE OLG I have concerns as costs continue to rise and programs and faculty are being cut. There is no foreign language until the upper grades and classroom sizes grow to allow for 30 per class @ the 3rd grade and up.
OLG has been awesome! I've gone there since I was 3 in Pre-k, and now that I'm in 7th grade I am so glad my parents sent me here. OLG was such a support when my family went through hard times, and I'm so glad they were there for me because it made it so much easier. The teachers are great and it has been great! If you're looking for a school, OLG is the place for you!
Both of my children have attended OLG for the past two years. Not only have the teachers always worked exceptionally hard to help my childrens' minds grow, they make us feel as if we are apart of their family too.
My son is in 3rd grade and has attended OLG since pre K (4 yrs now) the staff is sincere and amazing with children. Our 5 yr old is a little girl and she loves to get up, get ready, and attend. She is in a group that she loves and to Mrs Peters and Mrs Henderson-the greatest-so kind to them and I have seen them uphold the standard in the classroom. Thanks OLG for the life our children have at school...from what I see as a parent OLG is so strrong due to all the staff and parents that are involved for the children. The long term is thought of.
I love this school. My k-student has been at OLG three years. The staff has control. The car rider line can be challenging. The other thing is no Aid for hard working families. My daughter loves it I will be sad next year when she goes to Isom. Isom is a good school also but OLG is home to her. Cost can be hard for a family of 8 with only one in OLG. God Bless you all.
This is the best school around, The Teacher are so wonderful they treat you like you are a part of their family.I have 3 daughters in school this next year they will be 5th,2nd,K, And so far we have had nothing but wonderful teachers and when ever one of my children need help in some area the school is so willing to work with us to find them the help.They are their for the children.The homework sometimes can seem like alot.
My son will be a second grader at OLG this August. He has been very successful and is doing very well academically. There are 2 teachers per grade level, with 30 kids in each first and second grade class next year. The school has decided to hire an additional part time teacher for both grades next year for language arts so there will just be 20 kids in each class for the morning language arts instruction. The afternoons will have 30 in each class for social studies, etc. I think it's a great move that will help kids at different levels. Everyone there seems friendly and parents are very involved (volunteers for playground duty, lunch duty, office help, PTO).
