This is a school formed out of 2 failed schools. Failure plus failure equals more failure. This school should be closed.

Please note how OLD these current reviews are... 2008... 2006. You know why? Because that's when the leadership and quality of teachers where 4 stars. Since, the school,has dropped it's moral and overall vision. Bringing in haphazard programs and gouging parents money with hidden costs. This school has had more principles in 2 years than I've seen any school have. The classrooms are brutally hot in the summer and classroom carpets are filthy. The current principle for 2012-2013 has no real vision for the school or it's children and is lead blindly by the board members in her decision making. She will smile real wide and basically get nothing done. Of course, parents can't really expect anything more from a lady who left an administration position and landed the principle position at St. Elizabeth due to the desperation the school was in to replace the previous principle who one day, simply left the school without advance notice. When my husband and I saw this kind of disorder and lack of leadership, we withdrew our kids.

I have my daughter in the Pre-k class. I am very happy with the school. I think that her teacher, Mrs. R is phenomenal. My daughter loves going to school and is very fond of Mrs. R. I am very pleased with structure that they have, I feel that she is really thriving at OLC. I highly recommend the 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.
