I cannot say enough about the high quality of education as well as daily life lessons they share at Our Lady of the Mountains. I have two children enrolled and they love going to school! Small class sizes enable the students to learn not only the State standards of learning but also to respect themselves as well as others. That seems to be lacking in the world today. OLM reinforces the quality of life. The students who have attended the school not only go on to become successful individuals but also caring individuals. I would HIGHLY recommend this school to any partent who has children of school-age years.

I am so thankful that my children have the opportunity to attend this wonderful school. The teachers are excellent and work very hard to meet the individual needs of each student. I am so pleased with the quality of education they are receiving. In addition, the values we work hard to instill at home are reinforced in the classroom setting on a daily basis. We all LOVE this school, and highly recommend it to other families!

I have two children enrolled at OLM. They love the small class sizes and knowing everyone in the school by name. The morals and values taught at the school are enough of a reason to send your child, but the school also has teachers who focus on strong academic progress for each student. I love the family environment of the school and would not enroll my child in any other school.

My son has been at OLM for the past 6 years and I love it! The teachers are great and the kids are so polite and caring to each other. I love that they are taught respect for others. Olm families are really just one big family, and these are truly friends that my child will have for the rest of his life. We are not Catholic but I wouldnt put my child in any other school. I am very pleased with the academic levels at OLM and the one on one that my child get here. The morals that they are taught here are some they will carry with them forever and that is what alot of the children today are missing. I am so glad I found OLM for my child to attend, I would highly recommend this school for any parents looking for a great school.

My son has attended OLM for 2+ years and he enjoys going there every day. The classes are small so lots of individual attention is given. This is a Catholic school, but the majority of the students either are from other faiths or have no religious beliefs at all. The student body is more like a close knit family. We will be moving from the area soon and leaving OLM will be one of the hardest parts of our relocation.

This school is awesome - great environment, great one-on-one attention, wonderful, caring teachers, and a terrific student body! My daughter is able to work at her own pace and receive individualized instruction when necessary. A lot more instruction and learning takes place in this school than in the typical public school.

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.
