There are some amazing teachers and families at OLLIS but the principal is not among the strengths of the school. She is rigid, somewhat cold toward children, and has an attitude of intolerance toward anything outside the norm, including special needs and gifted education. I wish we had another Catholic alternative in Columbia.

We started with public school; however, discipline in the public school system is to be desired. My daughter was getting bullied and nothing would be done with the problem student. She asked me every morning could she stay home from school. We pulled her and began at OLLIS in 2012. Difference is night and day. Respect is the rule here and every child I have met here has been nothing but polite and respectful. My daughter's faith has grown by leaps and bounds, as well as mine and she is no longer telling me "I do not want to go to school today." That is a beautiful thing! We are very happy here.

The teachers and staff at this school are incredible! The curriculum is top notch and the students are very bright and well behaved. There is a high degree of parent involvement and many opportunities to volunteer. We are very happy with the education our child is receiving and plan to enroll the rest of the children when the time comes.

We were not thrilled with our experience at this school and have since moved our daughter to public school. The academics were not challenging and our daughter was constantly coming home saying she was bored (not a problem any more). I also felt like the children and parents were very cliquish.

I am very pleased with the learning environment at this school. Kids are taught respect and bad behavior is not tolerated. That provides the right atmosphere for teachers to do their job and kids to perform well. The principal position has been unstable lately, in spite of or maybe because parents as well as the Parish community are very involved.

After having experienced public school we decided to put our oldest in the CCS and have been stunned by the high level of learning our son has had, the confidence he has gained, the faith he has learned. We now have all of our kids (3) in CCS. We are ashamed of not doing this sooner. It is a truly great school.

Not impressed with CCS at all. I was very excited to send my children there but was very disappointed. The curriculum is lacking and the teachers are ok. I was really hoping that since it is a private school it would be held to a higher standard but that is not the case. People say private schools are better, I do not agree with that statement after sending my children to this school.

A place where average children can be educated to achieve their full potential. A safe environment where kindness and manners are taught. My children have learned study skills and personal skills that will serve them well all their lives.

This is a great school for our family. My 3rd and 8th graders are thriving and love school. The families get to know eachother and are very involved in the school.

My daughter is in kindergarten. She is reading at an end of first grade level, and much of the effort is due to her teacher, Mrs. Himmelburg. There is also a lot of emphasis on faith as it relates to holidays. The parents are very welcoming and create a family atmosphere for the school.
