OLV School has been a blessing to our family. Parental involvement is high - studies show increased parental involvement results in higher test scores and children who are happier and more confident. The faculty and administration are beyond dedicated. My children have received not only an excellent academic education, but in this faith-based environment, an excellent moral education.

This school teaches me everything I need to know in life. It has extracurricular activities that helps me get great grades. This school wants you to succeed in life. I recommend this school to everyone who is going to Catholic School. ~Jezzan Elliott

My children attend OLV and it is a wonderful learning atmosphere. The academic program is above standard and my children have thrived.

The level of parental involvement is over the top as certain parents seem to run the school. The administration is nonexistent and the lack of leadership shows. The teachers are the bright spot as they are dedicated and deliver a quality education without much guidance from the top and parents who feel the own the place.

Let me start by saying that the level of parental involvement at OLV is very high. The children are there to learn in a Spiritual Setting. The School Board and the Home School Association are very active. The quality of education is excellent and of course the level of extra curricular activities are endless. The only drawback is the turnover of teachers to the public school system due to compensation issues. It seems that as soon as good young teachers get a few years experience they tend to move on. As of now there are still qualified replacements and my child has had a wonderful experience attending OLV.

Each of my daughters went o 'OLV', and were enriched by contact with the Administration and the Teachers. One teacher after another, for the full eleven years we were part of this family, were professional, caring and committed to each child's development in this Catholic school. The children learned to be a part of the community, with an overall strong church-attending parish, and a sports program which is well-run and well-populated. These CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) programs are run by parents committed to excelling. The Church-school tie is very evident in such things as May Crowning, a strong First Penance and Eucharist program, as well as Confirmation program. I would have liked to see a stronger religion program in seventh/eighth grades, making it a priority to stress the tenets of our faith and infuse the children with such things as enthusiasm for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, Virtues, etc.

The quality of the academic program here is very good, on an average running about 6 months ahead of the public schools in the district. There is a band and choral program as well as after school scrabble and dance clubs. Sports are intramutral or operated through CYO.

OLV is a small school with a big agenda. They offer everything that a public school offers, but have a smaller student population that makes it feel like a family. My daughter has benefitted greatly from the Christian care offered by the faculty and staff and is constantly being challenged and inspired by the academics. OLV has the unique distinction of being able to offer its students most of the services of the public school, with a whole lot more. I can't imagine a more nurturing place for my child.

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.
