My children are receiving an excellent education from an academic standpoint. The teachers are nurturing and caring, yet know how to challenge the students to produce their best. The real value-added of Our Lady of Peace, though, is not so much the things you can easily measure-- like test scores and grades. It's what the school is able to instill in each student-- strong Christian values, a feeling of belonging to an entire community, and a sense of responsibility to each other and those less fortunate. The OLP family has helped my family shape our two daughters into the kind of young adults that hold all the promise of the future.

My son attended pre-school at Our Lady of Peace shortly after a very traumatic event took place in his life. The teachers and administration were so very kind and thoughtful in how they treated and cared for my son. It is a truly loving and devoted school and it shows!

Our Lady of Peace has a caring and loving principal and staff.. They work hard to provide a well rounded education by offering art, music, drama and sports team for its students. The school goes above and beyond to help care for its neighborhood and those in need.

I am the parent of two wonderful but anxious/nervous children. The school community at Our Lady of Peace has been so positive and reassuring to them. They truly look forward to going to school and have gained so much both academically and personally!

MY children have attended OLP for the past 10 years. The school provides a wonderful opportunity for children to learn and grow in a spiritual environment. The teachers are wonderful and focus on each child. The children work with and encourage each other daily. I am very happy my children have and currently attend OLP.

It's a place to learn and grow together. Everyone is part of a 'family'. We have two children. One graduated from there and attends Kellenberg and the other will graduate this June and follow. Our Lady of Peace has been such a big and wonderful part of our lives for so many years. Sr. Mary and the staff are outstanding. They give 110% of themselves.

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.
