Amazing School! Grew up in there and now a skilled teen earning more than most teens. This school helped me so much!

I am glad the school is closing. My children have had nothing but trouble there. One day the rules say one thing and then the next day they are changed and then the next day they are back to how they were supposed to be in the first place. I guess it all depends on who the student in trouble is!

I am a student from the class of 2009, and I didn't enjoy my time at this school. OLGC is full of many suprising events, and most of them are pretty bad.

my children are getting the fundamentals of an education that will last them a lifetime. There's nothing fancy about the school, which is just how we like it. As a parent, we are able to communicate and resolve any problems and truly believe our children are getting the best possible education. Jeff & Kim Guerra Haverhill, Ma

I loved going to OLGC! It was such an awesome school. I made a lot of friends over the years at this school. The teachers were great. They have rules that are easy to follow and suitable consequences for the rules you break. I have a lot of great memories from this school, but also some bad ones. If you are wondering if you should put your child to this school, the answer is YES! I guarantee that your child would have a great time at this school and if they ever have any problems there is always a teacher or other faculty member there to help. Send your child here!

My daughter is a graduate of St. A's class of 2004. I love the closeness of this school it really helped her to excel. The teachers are just superb. The principal really has this school going in the right direction. My daughter and I were really made to feel at home there. I hope that all the new families enjoy the same wonderful experience that we did. I am sad to see my daughters years at St. Augustine's come to an end. Thanks to all the wonderful teachers my daughter had there like Mrs Student,Mrs. Martel,Mrs. Clarke,Mrs.Delmonte and Mrs.Carney. Good luck to the class of 2005.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
