I'm really impressed with this school. The teachers are really good with my children and I love the way they make kids care about their school work. These teachers are there for your kids when you need them. Keep up the good work!

I feel that overall this school is a good school, better than a public school for sure. However, 'trustworthiness' in the education focus is over-stated in my opinion. A catholic school should not have as many issues with theft that go unaddressed. These kids need to be sat down and made to feel that they will be punished for their actions; i feel that these kids believe that they can do whatever they want!

I Think that this school is a very good school. It's got great teachers and loving ones too. The teachers are strict, but a child needs that in their life to accomplish things in their life much higher than a student would do in a non- strict enviornment. They have a lot of things to do there and they are always busy. Parents Involvment is very good too. They do school fundraisers and help the school get money to pay the bills!

My daughter has attended OLBR since Pre-K (currently in 5th grade) and I just registered my youngest for their Pre-K program. The teachers and principal go the extra mile to insure your child gets the help he/she needs.

this school has become my children's second family and I think they are getting a great education plus good morals and ways of life. I could not imagine sending them anywhere else and feel they are in good hands when I am not there

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.
