Not happy with this school so glad I sent my child for a more challenging curriculum.

It is small and everybody there knows and cares about each other. They make everyone feel special.

After hiring a new principal (the third principal in 3 years), I hope the school is finally back on track. They are spending a lot of money on advertising and open houses to encourage families to return.

My son is going into his 2nd year @ OLF. I am satisfied with the school. The academic curriculum is great, the teachers care, and the students learn in a safe, diverse, and caring environment. The extra-curricular activities are limited, but recreation dept in our city is fairly robust, so he does not suffer. My son loves the school and I'd love to keep him there until he finishes 8th grade. Tuition is very reasonable. Last year he learned cursive, about the environment. I am excited about what he'll learn in 3rd grade.

Academically it's a great school if your child does not need special services. Extracurricular activities are few. Parent involvement is what you want it to be.

My son attended First Grade. He loved the school and the teachers. He did extermely well in the Terra Nova test. For academic and social development this was an extremely good school.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
