I love this school! My daughter is in pre-k and she loves it. Her teacher is wonderful and great with communication. They have many activities throughout the year and encourage parent's to participate. The parents are friendly and we couldn't ask for a better school. I also love that she is getting a religious education as well.
Love religion mixed with education; love the many diverse enrichments; love that the principal doesn't show favoritism; love the small class size for grade school; love being able to go to assemblies, pep rallies, etc.; love the parental involvement; love the cafeteria food; love the weekly Masses; love that I can walk my child to class in the morning and greet her at the classroom door in the afternoon; love that the rules in the handbook are enforced
The class sizes at this school are entirely too large for the children to get decent one on one help at any given time. Also many issues seem to get swept under the rug very often. There is now a new principal. We are watching to see what changes are going to be made. If things don't start changing we are considering leaving.
OLQH School has given both of my children a remarkable faith and a personal confidence level that I could not achieve as a parent alone. Building a caring, confident, and faith-filled child is not something a parent can easily do alone. It has been said that it takes a village to raise a child and this is a wonderfully caring place. The parents & staff work together to love and support each child. Thank you OLQH for the wonderful education that you have given my children.
I have three children at OLQH. We've been at the school nine years now. The teachers and staff are very caring and communicate well with parents. The school has strong academics and I believe a majority of the students care about their grades and want to do well-- good attitudes that rub off and encourage other peers. Parents are very involved, and being a smaller school you can get to know the families well, and get a good idea of who your children are hanging around. Also the Christian environment is priceless for helping children develop moral values. There are plenty of extracurricular activities and sports to meet a range of interests.
