It was a great school but this year 2009 it closed it's doors.I love OLV

The school is very strong in their academic and moral development programs, and they consistently place many students into the best private high school honor programs. Parent involvement is quite high. Negatives are the strenght of the current principal, who backs down in the face of challange. Some questionable discinplinery actions or more correctly, not taking action have led to several students leaving the school. Extracuricular programs are not varied or plentiful enough, particlarly sport programs. Students must go to town, club or other Parish CYO programs to participate. This is changing, basketball has recently been added - but change comes very slowly here. A new progrssive leader would return this school to its past greatness, but it is still very good, and I continue to send my children here.

Both my children attend OLV. They began in PreK and will continue there until 8th grade. We love the teachers and especially the business office staff. OLV is like a big family. They could have more after school activities, but as a whole, I would not send my children anywhere else. It is a safe, nurturing enviornment. OLV is the place to be!

OLV has given my children so much over the years. The students, faculty, and staff all add to a warm, welcoming environment that makes everyone feel right at home. My oldest daughter who just graduated didn't want to leave. It is a fantastic school that I would reccomend to anyone.

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.
