The Academy of Our Lady of Peace offers a high quality education for PK3 - 8th grade for a modest cost. The location and facilities is superior to other near by parochial schools.

Save your money, it certainly won't go towards your child's education at this school. Teachers inflate grades, and they certainly do not follow the NJ common core standards, despite their claims. They are constantly begging for money or donations of one sort or another. Students will have the same core subject teachers (math, science, social studies, and language arts) for four years in a row (grades 5-8) this is in addition to having the same art, computer and gym teacher for their entire stay at the Academy. Students will do the same "baseball card" project for social studies every year for grade 5-8. In language arts, students will be required to read books that are at a lower reading level than the grade the student is in. Students in seventh grade do not write narratives, open ended responses, or memoirs that the state requires. Grammar worksheets for 5th and 6th grade are used in the seventh grade. Administration is not always truthful and can be very aggressive with parents. This school is all bells and whistles. Buyer beware, all that glitters is not gold.

AOLP has been a great school for our children. The teacher / student ratio is low and they take the extra care and attention to all of their students that we come to appreciate over the years.

I have two children attending OLP and it is a wonderful school offering a loving environment for my children. Academically, they compete with the best schools offering kids Computer and Spanish classes starting from Kindergarten. With an average of 16 students per class, our children get the personalized attention that as parents we really desire. On top of the quality education, they are also bulding a strong moral foundation that my children will rely on for the rest of their lives. I highly recommend this school to any parent who is looking for a top notch elementary education with a nurturing environment.
