I attended Our Lady for my 7th and 8th grade school year. There was only one other new student that I made friends with, but because of the long-term bonds all of the other students had made years before, not many people wanted to befriend us. He and I had the worst years of school at Our Lady. Mrs. Dingerson and Mrs. Wallace were the best teachers on the campus and I still to this day remain in contact with them. I saw the principle twice my entire time at the school, once for being wrongly accused of something I didn't do, and a second time at graduation. Overall, I suggest never enrolling your child into this school unless they are under 8, or are extremely outgoing. This school was a waste of my families money and time.
We have been at this school since pre-k but the shift to non qualified inappropriate teachers and admin that supports their bad behavior is over the top. It's unfortunate because some of the families have been amazing but the teachers, admin, and less than stellar academics makes this a less than one star school.
I have had 2 children that have gone through Our Lady, one has graduated and one is currwntly there. I will say this. There are some really good teachers there. Mr. And Mrs. Martinez, Ms. Morrow, Mrs. Dingerson. The problem is the principal Mrs. Joyce. She has no business running a school. She is the least involved administrator I have ever seen. She just recently hired a teacher with no license and no teaching experience at all. There were other applicants that were actual licensed teachers! How many of the parents know they are spending $600 a month for a parent to teach their child! This is outrageous. She has run off a lot of great teachers too. It is pathetic. I am so sad to see what ise to be a great school just being run i to the ground. FYI..the school's admission numbers are down 40%. Might be time to look for another school. Preferably one that actually has teachers teaching the kids.
The families and children who attend this school are wonderful, but the principal is extremely uninvolved and ineffective. Many good families and teachers have left this school (including ourselves) due to the lack of leadership and lack of involvement of the administrator. The principal is invisible and leaves work by 1 PM. She is not involved in the classrooms or activities outside of school. The bad reviews on this website are true. The technology teacher is awful and they learn nothing worthwhile in that class. My children also reported learning about eagles as a previous review states - and the kids don't learn how to use Excel or Powerpoint. One of the 5th grade teachers loses all the kids assignments and the school's solution is to tell the parents that it is their job to keep all of their children's work and then prove to the school that they did it. How about fire the teacher that loses all the kids work instead? This school will NOT IMPROVE until the diocese removes Mrs. Joyce as the principal. She is the reason the good teachers and the families all leave.
