I went to OLOH since preschool, and this year i was transfered to Longmeadow public schools. I miss OLOH alot. OLOH changed my life forever and i wish i never had to leave. I have been there for 8 years in my life, and i really wish i could just go back. OLOH should grow in students.

I am student at OLOH I have attended this school for 10 years(since pre-school)now this year will be my last(c/o '05'). I would have to say OLOH is a safe school with good teachers, but the school is not perfect(well that is what I think) their could be some improvementce to it. But over all it is well maintaned. It has spanish class, its own gym, and music class and also a cafiteria. Its a good school for children to attend because the useually have thesame class mates as years go on. Also OLOH has many sports teams, boy and girl basketball teams and boy and girl soccer teams,and in the winter their is ski club, if your child is not a student at OLOH they can still be on a OLOH team (not ski club).Over all Our Lady Of Hope is a nice school and I will certantly miss it.

As the mother of 2 children attending this school, coming from a local public school, I am pleased with our decision to switch to the school. We were looking for a good balance for our children and seem to have found it here. Besides having much smaller class sizes, and music and its own gym, OLOH has a very well rounded program for its children. My daughter never had a music class and gym was something that was rotated with health class. The most important (I think) is my children feel safe and I feel safe sending them to school each day. The families at OLOH all have at least something in common, our Catholic religion.

My daughter is in second grade at OurLady of Hope School, and has been attending the school since preK. Her experience there has been terrific. The environment is nuturing and more challenging than at public schools. My husband and I chose this school for that reason as well as the Faith based education our daughter is receiving here. It is critically important to us that she learn not only the three r's, but also life's moral, ethical, and religious lessons that will guide her throughout life. The teachers at Our Lady of Hope are the most dedicated individuals I have met. They are true professionals who value good education and who continuouisly put the children first. I would recommend this school to anyone.

The phrase 'commitment to excellence' best describes the overall mission of this educational institution. The resulting environment is one in which kids not only learn, but actually 'learn to learn'. The almost magical organization of OLOH school should be a model for others to follow, especially given that it not only accomplishes its mission, but does so at less than 20% of the cost of chronically failing attempts to ostensibly do so in the public school system.

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.


Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
