Mary Our Queen is the best school in the city of Omaha!!! We drive our children 8 miles each way to attend MOQ. The school is very academically challenging, and I firmly believe that our children are thoroughly prepared to succeed in high school & life. Our Principal's background in Academic Standards at the Archdiocese has been great for our school. Our teachers & school staff include the kindest, most loving, & supportive people I know. My children have adored their teachers & feel loved in return. As a mother, I have found numerous opportunities to volunteer at the school & church. Through the MOMS program, Home & School Assoc, & Ladies' Guild, I have met a group of moms who have become my very best friends. My husband has made many close friends through Men's Club & MOQ sports. They continuously educate the students on treating others as Jesus would, with kindness, respect, & love. The school counselor was swift & thorough in resolving an issue between my child & another, involving unkind words. They required the children to meet together & one-on-one with the counselor several times. The girls learned how to make better, more Christian-like decisions & are now friends.

I'm so happy we found Mary Our Queen. The teachers are excellent, they do everything they can for the students. A solid Catholic foundation, they emphasize helping others and the community. They have a rigorous curriculum and offer a variety of extra curricular activities. The school has competitive Math and Robotics clubs. I am thrilled with the school and couldn't ask for more.

The principal refuses to acknowledge a huge problem with bulleying within the school. Her method in dealing with the problem is to deny that it exists. Acedemically, Mary Our Queen lacks and is much worse than other area catholic schools. Socially, the school has great extracurricular activities, sports and a wonderful sense of community in which all are made to feel welcome. There are many opportunities for volunteering and parental involvement. I have to give only one star though due to the seriousness of the bulleying problem and the lack of commitment to protect all students by the principal.

Our children have acedemically blossomed at MOQ. The teachers and staff are very committed to the students and families. Parents are very involved and provide a wonderful social support network.

MOQ is a great experience for elementary aged kids, teachers go above and beyond to give your child a great education and to prepare them for high school and beyond. My son has had an excellent experience in sports and boy scouts at MOQ, the parent involvement has been outstanding. No problems with bullying or social clicks, all the students seem to get along with the older kids really helping with the younger.

Academically a year ahead of public schools. Half day kindergarten class perfectly prepared our child for first grade. There is a variety of extra-curricular activities and programs. Allows parents to be involved in day to day activities if desired. Honors classes offered and competitive with other schools.

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.
