We have had a very bad experience of the pre K program here. The curriculum is very dumbed down although they claim it's a full Pre K program. There is very little or no emphasis on emergent reading skills or math. If we didn't work with our child at home they would not be ready for K. The school is also run by a small click of parents and the teachers have their class student favorites and their favorite parents. If your child is not in the click they do not get equal attention from the teachers. I could not recommend this school. Poor academics.
The Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Grade School is THE rising star in the Washington area for private grade schools. Enrollment has been steady or rising, tuition has remained constant for the past three years, the technology budget has increased every year, and our test scores are in the top 5% in the nation. OLL students are recognized for their accomplishments in academics (through scholarships to the local Catholic High School), the arts (vocal and instrumental music as well as writing and speech), and in community involvement. The Pastor here truly supports the school and is often seen working or playing basketball or soccer with the kids. There is not a better Catholic Grade School in the area!
Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School is one of the best schools in the Washington area, private or public. OLL consistently has the highest test scores and academic programs in the area and has by far the most Valedectorians and Salutorians of any grade school at the local private and public high schools. The keys to this success are experienced teachers (the most experienced and most master's degrees in the area), a focus on disciplined academic work, and the best computer facilities in the area. The computer lab itself has 40 computers with a full-time computer instructor and there are computers and peripherals in all classrooms as well. This focus on academic achievement is supplemented by very successful sports program, scouting program and community-focused volunteer programs. Overall, the students that graduate from the 8th grade at OLL are the best prepared in the area for high school.
