OLPH has been a great fit for our family. We have been there for 4 years now and my children love it. The teachers and staff are very caring (EVERY teacher knows EVERY student by name!) and go above and beyond to see that every student achieves their best. The student population is multi-cultural, and my children have friends from all backgrounds. I have had both of my children there since pre-k and wouldn't go anywhere else. Aside from high academic standards and the family environment, OLPH also has a strong Catholic identity, which is incorporated into all they do. Furthermore, OLPH is SACS accredited and has multiple scholarship opportunties available to assist with tuition. We are very thankful for this school!

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
While OLPH does NOT have a special education program, they do utilize the resources they have to meet the needs of every student the best they can. They also give references for services such as speech (as my son needed) which came to the school.


Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
While there was some turnover with principals a few years ago, since we have been at OLPH (2013) we have seen primarily positive and effective leadership in the school.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
OLPH promotes pirate P.R.I.D.E in all they do. This stands for Prayer, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence. They also promote Catholic values and virtues.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers go above and beyond to work with both students and their families to help each child achieve his or her best.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
My daughter was and is thirsty for knowledge.and they didn't give her anything near her level or enough stuff of the lower level to keep her busy or save her from boredom.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
They don't hold everyone accountable for their actions or to the same standards as the person next to them. Everyone involved in an incident should have their behavior chart color changed not just one person. When a child comes to you with a problem, listen and solve it. Don't just blow it off or make them feel like its their fault or problem.

My daughter mastered confidence her first 3 semesters of school and her whole life before attending this school. Her final report card reported the opposite. They allowed my daughter to be bullied and sit bored in class to the point her personality change. They then punished her for it. (She is now reserved with people who have known her her entire life. She also hides behind me and is no longer independent. She borders on needy.) She acted out because of that. The principal tried to blame us and said none of it was the schools fault. FYI: GIFTED IS SPECIAL EDUCATION. They don't tell you this nor can they necessarily spot it but they make sure you sign papers that say they can't handle Special Education.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
They are not effective at all. They can't figure out what's going on with the kids they are with all day long.



- a
OLPH has been such an incredible disappointment. We moved from our previous parish which was an incredible school and great parish which split all fund raising proceeds between parish and school evenly, to this. Our first grader's teacher is great, however the school leadership and parish are not even close to par. Poorly planned fund raising events, only a single (half baked) school trip all year with no planned transportation, etc...a Pastor who appears only to care about funding his personal projects and not the welfare of the students. We will not be continuing with OLPH.
