Sending my son here was the best decision my husband and I made. The nurturing provided by both teachers and principle is exceptional. The wide range of their curriculum provides many areas to grow not only academically but spiritually as well. The students are always changelled to help them intellectually increase their potential. For this I am grateful to be part of this growing community. GOD BLESS everyone including Father Tom for being a big part of the students nurturing faith.

Pre-K through Grade 5 Catholic Elementary School serving 135 students. Now offering a flexible 3 year old program. Art, Music, Physical Education, Technology and Library classes weekly. After school math program and instrumental music classes. Committed and dedicated staff. Wonderful community of families who are involved in every aspect of school life.

My daughter attends kindergarten & loves it. The staff is amazing & truly cares about the students. We are so impressed with the community here and happy to be a part of it. This is the best decision we could have made to send her to Our Lady of Lourdes.

All three of my children attended this great little school, and have grown into respectable, successful adults of whom I am proud. Respect and great academics, along with affordable tuition enabling more to attend. Structured environment and family centered environment.

Great school! Stresses the basics of learning --reading,writing, math, science, social studies, and computer. Teaches discipline, character building, and religious ed. throughout the day. Reasonable tuition and minimal fundraising. Caring, nurturing atmosphere. One class of each grade(K-5), where principal and teachers know every child in the school and their parents. Parent volunteers help with many tasks. Spring Art Show (all grades)and Science Fair(Gr.4&5). Two of my children attended this school and I was very satisfied with their education.

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.
