This is our first year at OLOW, the staff, students and parents welcomed our family with open arms. My son immediately made friends, started to enjoy school again and was excited to get onto the bus and start his day. We came from a horrible experience in public school where the classes were too big and the teacher spent their day herding the masses, not teaching the lessons. At Our Lady of Wisdom, there is much more structure, disciple and understanding by the staff. The children are better behaved and are academically focused. There is always a social activity for the kids or an event for the parents. The sense of community is unmatched in the public sector. I am so thankful to have found OLOW, my son s life will forever be changed and enlightened by this school. I would recommend it to anyone who wants their children to grow up healthy, caring, respectful and knowledgeable on life, academics and faith.

My children are happy and thriving academically, socially, and spiritually. OLOW provides a loving and nurturing environment to begin our children's faith based educational journey, and along the way adds a seamless and balanced curriculum from year to year. High standards are set and my children are encouraged to achieve, and strive to become the best version of themselves. Great attention is paid to the individual and small class sizes make this possible. By 8th grade, currently my oldest child's class, children become students that are confident, capable, and very prepared for the Catholic High School of their choice. Thank you OLOW! Teachers, friends, students, and staff...we are all one family! #olowpride


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a parent
OLOW holds a 100%passing rate for the Math and Scence Regents two consecutive years in row. This is not accomplished with unqualified teachers.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
Age appropriate and academically challenging assignments across all grade levels. Assignments are fun and my daughters teachers given HW bingo choice.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a parent
The new administration, although new, exceeds the abilities of most seasoned administrators because of his willingness to listen and find a common ground in order to meet the needs of all families needs. Not common in today's education.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a parent
The teachers are dedicated and truly care about their students. The school lacks resources and some of the textbooks are nearly 20 years old.

Develops character: Agree


- a parent
I think the religious instruction helps students develop character. This is lacking in public school.



- a parent
This school severely lacks resources and is disorganized. Too many teachers have left the school within the past year. This makes me uneasy and leads me to wonder why they left.




- a parent
Parents form clicks and make others feel unwelcome. If you are not with the in-parents you don't stand a chance. Teachers need more training, school needs more activities for students and they're behind the times. School also needs to offer more services for students. You need to spend money to better the school.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a parent
if you aren't in the in crowd your out parents are running this school and very very clickie
