Love the attention my students get with their teachers. Everyone genuinely cares about everyone else!

I cannot think of a better school for my children. The staff are incredibly kind, loving and helpful, and the teachers are absolutely the best! The academic standards are very high, and my children feel inspired and challenged to do their personal best. Christ is at the center of all learning, and students are encouraged everyday to be Respectful, Responsible, and Resemble Jesus. What more could you ask for?

Small classes with personal attention to each student. Art and Music programs are outstanding, especially for a small private school. Many opportunities for parents and other family members to get involved in the school. Discipline is important, and it shows in the behavior of the students. Many teachers volunteer to stay after school hours to do extracurricular clubs or activities. The only improvement I would like to see is more enrichment opportunities for advanced students.

I was a member of the first class to graduate from Our Lady of Grace, and I can honestly say that going to school there was one of the best decisions that my parents and I have made together. I came from a school where some of my teachers didn't know my name and the class sizes were quite large. At OLG every one of my teachers knew me, my strengths, my weaknesses, the best ways to motivate me to learn, and were all genuinely interested in my walk in faith. At OLG I was able to try different sports because the school let everyone of age participate. I was also able to learn new tools in technology through our computer class where we learned about writing html format. One of the best things was that I was also able to explore individual subjects through creative projects made connections across the grade level curriculum. This allowed teachers to reach all different kinds of learners and be sure we all had a complete, meaningful understanding of the concepts we learned. The most important things that I learned in my time at OLG were my desire to share my passions with others through teaching and example along with the true meaning of friendship. I would recommend this school to all.

Our Lady of Grace is a great school. Not perfect ---no school is perfect. Students leave 8th grade well prepared for high school along with being respectful, responsible citizens.

Amazing academic success in a faith based setting! We have many staff members that send their own children here because they think it is so special and offers a dynamic learning environment. We have an amazing music program, a science curriculum that puts our middle school public counterparts to shame, teachers with Master's degrees and can teach many disciplines, and the opportunity for our students to worship! Our students are always complimented on their behavior, their academic performance and their faith. We are committed to service, health and wellness and academic accountability from our youngest learners to our oldest, from our emerging students to our self sufficient. There is a place for everyone at Our Lady of Grace. Students, families, teachers and parents are welcomed, respected, and embraced!

Who are these negative people? I guess it is easier to say negative things behind the anonymity of a website. I am loud and proud about OLG. I handle the good and the bad, just like I did in public school. These amazing teachers, staff members--I am at the school many times a week in a variety of capacities...I simply don't see what these negative people say. I see students happy to be together, no one walking alone, I hear about academic issues being solved by teachers working during recess and before and after school for free to help students, the specials teacher go above and beyond with camps and extra work, the resource department is amazing, taking students that would other wise fall through the cracks at another school---we need to build up our school, not tear it down. Be the change you want to see in the world!

No school is perfect, but OLG comes close to it. We are so glad that we chose this school over all the others in the area when we moved here several years ago. The teachers and administration are dedicated and caring, and you can feel the calm, positive, spiritual energy when you walk in the door.

This is not the best place for a school. There are some really nice teachers but the principal, administration, and alot of people who think they are better than others. There is alot of bullying that goes on that is not dealt with. They seem to just brush it under the rug. If you arent catholic or dont have alot of money, they dont care about you as much as someone else. Public schools in the area are better than this. Atleast public schools dont look like a train wreck from the kids as ive seen when coming to events at olog.

I have 2 children that attend Our Lady of Grace Catholic School in Noblesville, Indiana. We have been very happy with the school overall. We have been affiliated with the school and parish for 9 years. My children feel very safe and comfortable in their school environment. The teachers work very hard and do a fantastic job teaching and nurturing all children. We have new leadership - new Principal last year - so the school, staff, parents, and students are all still adjusting to the changes. We have very strong parent involvement, great sports programs, coaches, specials, teachers, facilities, and families. Very pleased with the school and the quality of education.

With a large family, we knew that this would be a sacrifice for us but it is so worth it! OLG provides the community and family feeling that we want for our children on top of a great education. Our older children have gone up to be in academic accelerated classes when they have left OLG. They are prepared for high school, a life of faith, and with a foundation for a love of learning and hard work. We feel very staff member there is approachable and reasonable. This is their calling--to teach our students. Our students are challenged, have plenty of opportunities for extra curricular activities (sports and academic) and have a great group of diverse friends. We love OLG!

I am a parent first and a staff member second--wouldn't work anywhere else and definitely wouldn't send my children anywhere else. Enrichment, remediation--my kids cover the whole spectrum and I am so happy that everyone is getting what they need to be the best students they can be. I know they are growing in their faith and learning to live a life that allow them to be "servant leaders" as our principal likes to say. We are mkaing changes to move forward with our 21st century skills, best practices, Catholic identity, and educational leaders.

The teachers at this school are wonderful, all the way from the beginners program to grade 8! They invest so much of their time to ensure my children are getting the best possible education.

I highly recommend Our Lady of Grace to any family looking for a school that provides Faithful leadership and INDIVIDUAL attention for their children. Having a child now at Guerin Catholic, we see how incredibly prepared OLG students are. From the outstanding Science program to the specials like Tech, Music and Art... OLG is preparing it's students for future successes in all areas of their lives. Thank you to the staff and administration for your tireless efforts and dedication to our family and all OLG families! Our Lady of Grace....Pray for Us!

Our Lady of Grace School is an AMAZING school! I had to quit reading the negative reviews down below because I totally disagree. With new leadership comes change. People want to be led, until it really happens then they no longer want it. Is it really the principals fault that the world has gotten so scary? Instead of complaining about all the new "rules" how about being happy that changes have happened to keep our children safe? If you have issues, he is the most approachable man! High fiving the children, wanting to get to know them, involved in their daily activities, stressing faith, respect and being responsible. Isn't that ultimately what we all want for our children? To say that the staff is top notch is an understatement! OLG has a real sense of community combined with high academic standards. I had to convince my husband to send my child to a catholic school - we did it and he has become a bigger fan of catholic education than I am! Our children love OLG! If you want to get a sense of what our school is about - join our school at 9am Thursdays for our all school mass. It will move you to tears - I am so proud to be part of OLG!

Our Lady of Grace has a very welcoming and loving environment. It is obvious that God comes first here; you can see it modeled from the teachers and staff. I really like that the academic standards are high, and teachers meet the individual needs of students with a variety of teaching styles. My children are good quiet students that did not get noticed in their old school because they received good grades and didn't cause trouble. OLG has been a blessing because they are recognized for their good behavior and asked to correct any bad choice that they make. The teachers and staff really do care for my children; therefore, moving our kids to OLG is the best move, academically and socially, my wife and I have made for them. I would recommend this school to anyone moving to or living in the Noblesville area.

We pulled our children from the school due to the direction the administration was taking the school. I am very concerned with his lack of addressing issues. I am not sure if he doesn't like confrontation or truly does not know what to do. My family was there for years and we gave him one year and the downward spiral was evident from the start. I did attempt to meet with him and nothing came out of it. I pray especially for the teachers and students.

The leadership at OLG is on a downward spiral. I believe he doesn't like confrontations and dismisses the notion that OLG has a serious bullying issue. As the previous reviewer stated, we too met with the principal and nothing came out of that either. Not sure where "Father" found him, but he is worse than the previous principal. I do not suggest to anyone to send your children to OLG.

I can see why some parents are frustrated by new policies, I think it is important to see the bigger picture. When I haven't understood all the changes, I have asked for an explanation. I have never been turned away from asking questions. My children are thriving at OLG and all the changes are for the better. We may be overreacting to potential problems but in the end, I want my children somewhere safe. It isn't sterile here--things are just changing.

We are the proud parents of 3 graduates of Our Lady of Grace school. All of the academics, social skills, and personal accountability learned while attending Our Lady of Grace have made their transition to a large public high school go very smoothly. Our children not only know how to study for an exam, prepare a report or project, and take notes in class, but also have the confidence to walk into a new environment and meet new people, take challenging courses, join new clubs, and be an example to those around them. Every aspect of the education at Our Lady of Grace is invaluable. The graduates of Our Lady of Grace are well-rounded young people.

I have to say that I am grateful for OLG's Principal and staff!! Our children are well cared for! The security changes are welcomed and expected. The security of the students is paramount. Thank you to all who are making this a priority. We as parents need to realize that our Principal and staff have the training and education that we do not have. With that said, we need to trust and support them with their decisions. Lets add to the strength of OLG, not become its weakness.

The new principal does not communicate well and has turned a school that was once very much like a family into a very sterile institution. His efforts to "protect" the students have separated parents and teachers, ceased cooperation and communication among parents and teachers, which results in a sub-par education. Parent involvement is frowned upon now.

My daughter is currently in Kindergarten and also attended pre-K at OLG. My son will be attending OLG next year as well, starting the pre-K program. OLG has been a blessing to me and my children. As a single mother working as a RN, I could not afford the tuition, but that did not stop my children from going there...OLG made sure my children were able to attend and worked out a payment I am able to afford. We have been treated like family and I wasn't even Catholic at the time. My daughter is learning much more than subtraction and multiplication at OLG, she is learning how to respect and care for others.

The teachers and students are great, but the administration stinks! The principal does not communicate well with the parents. I wonder if she even likes children? There is not a process for a parent to complain about the school. It is a dictatorship and if you do complain, you are ostracized.

The vast majority of the teachers are very sweet, patient, compassionate, and talented. The administration, however, is a complete failure. There is supposedly an anti-bullying policy in place, and much time and effort is made to inform families of this program; however, on a day-to-day basis, bullying, harassment, and tormenting is overlooked or diminished as "isolated incidents." I removed my special-needs child when the environment among her peers became ostracizing, bullying, belittling, and hostile to the point of physical violence, all of which was reported to the principal and deemed to be "not bullying." I suspect that it was more important to the administration to ensure the continued payment of 3-6 bullies' families' tuition payments (rather than risk losing them by, oh, I don't know, punishing them for tormenting a fellow student) than lose merely lose one source of income.

OLG has been a blessing to our family. Nothing wrong with Noblesville or HSE schools (we live in HSE district) but an education where Faith is front and center is priceless. This is a small school where teachers and staff know where our children have needs and where they excel.

Excellent school! The staff is wonderful, and the students are just as wonderful. I have never been to a school where the older kids take time to help the younger kids. The love of God is present in this school, and in the staff. Wonderful school. Public schools are only half as good as OLG on their best days.

Unbelievable school! Far better than any other private school in the Noblesville area (and we attended one other). Language Arts program is amazing, especially in the upper grades. This school focuses on the whole child, and does not cut corners! If you are looking for a loving environment that also promotes rigorous academics, this is the school for you!

Our Lady of Grace is a wonderful Catholic school with high academic standards, as well as emphasis on moral and ethical education. The written language program is top notch with students writing their own books through the Young Authors program. The new Media Center is constantly growing with the addition of new books and a Technology Lab. The music room features 20 keyboards so each pupil gets instruction in playing as well as singing. There is a strings ensemble and a drum circle who rehearse and perform regularly. The athletics program includes all major sports and new fields to play them on. Families are encouraged to be involved in classroom activities, as coaches, and as volunteers for fundraising and other events. This school is a wonderful place for all children grades k through 8. The sense of family and community just cannot be beat!
