This school is a wonderful combination of teaching with fun and learning. The students have a better opportunity of getting into their favorite Catholic High School. This school is absolutely amazing, and your child(ren) will enjoy it very much, I know mine certainly dd. I recommend this school to anybody who has a child 4years and up.

The teachers at OLP are strong, dedicated, caring, and skilled professionals who have a great knack of motivating the students to learn more while enjoying the process. My son has grown in so many ways: he is more confident, independent, and he is thriving academically and spiritually. The teachers and Principal are great at involving parents in school activities and the children's education. I feel at ease knowing that my son's academic and spiritual needs are being met in such a positive environment. In short, OLP builds a solid foundation and prepares our children for a successful life!

Our Lady of Peace is a great educational institution. It is led by a principal with great vision who truly cares about the students and their educational advancement as well as personal growth. The teachers share in that vision and promote an environment that helps all students thrive.

Our Lady of Peace is a wonderful school. My children have thrived there and I attribute their success to the educationally challenging environment provided by Sister Mary and her excellent staff of teachers. In addition to the excellent education the children are receiving, they are learning valuable life lessons on integrity, moral character and kindness, values that will make them the best people they can be.

I love OLP School because of the strong School/Church community. Many bonds were formed amongst the parents and the children.This school/teachers/Principal prepared my children to be accepted into Sacred Heart Academy and Chaminade High School. I have many fond memories of the 11 years spent IN OLP with my son and daughter.

MY daughter goes to OLP I've seen how much she has grown socially and educationally. She is 4yrs old and in the nursery program. From the principle to the teachers they are amazing. This is not just a school but a family. They offer so much to the children so they can grow in their own way.
