The school is focused on childrens overall f development, not only academics, moral or ethics. Being a small classroom setting (most are less than 20), means teachers know each kid's learning level and needs. The administration is responsive and afterschool programs are diverse. Our children are happy at the school, and I can see their enthusiasm to learn and become good leaders.

Our Lady's Academy in Waltham is an excellent school. The principal, teachers, staff, and parents are the reason why the children succeed and advance in every aspect. The school is warm and inviting. The atmosphere is fun and the kids enjoy learning. I would recommend Our Lady's Academy to anyone.

We live in Waltham and have intensely researched (and debated) the best place and option for our two kids. We wanted a school that embodied a culture of transparency, moral and ethics, and a high bar of academic excellence. Our Lady's Academy is fantastic! The faculty and administration is open, transparent, and deeply involved in each child's growth and education. The parent community is also very involved. A wonderful community overall. Updated computer and science lab with SmartBoards in EVERY classroom.

We transferred our child from public school to Our Lady's Academy several years back,by far it was the best decision we made for our child's future. The teachers are committed and always available to the students, as well as our principal Mrs.Minor and our administrative assistant Mrs. Gotgart. If you are looking to better your son/daughters future ....look no further.

Great School!!! I am a parent of 3 current students all of which are happy and thriving. The Principal, Mrs. Minor, has done wonders for the school in regards to teacher training, equipment, and enrollment. The teachers are excellent and very dedicated to the students.

We transferred 2 of our children there from Arlington Public Schools. I has been great for our children. The academics and social envrioment are everygthing we would want. We are not catholic and have found that part of the enviroment to be a real plus for our kids. Would strongly recommend for anyone looking for a school that focuses on Academic development with a strong social ethic.
