This schools is very disappointing they are motavited by money and all the money they collect does not reflect where it should the teachers are not help the cirriculum are way below city standards. If you decide to pay the extra cost to send your child to private school there but be something you get out of it and you can't get that here

I had chosen this school for my child because it's very diverse. Although I'm not happy with how involved the teacher's are and the tuition keeps increasing every year. The principal isn't friendly as well. At this time I'm looking around to other private schools that could offer much more.

I currently have two children who are attending this school and I am more than satisfied with the education they are receiving. One warning however, if your child is not willing to work hard and/or if the parents are not willing to be involved in the child's academic life, then this school is not for you. You will not be able to 'coast' through your academic carrer at Our Lady of Lourdes because this school actually expects you to work hard. There are many extra curricular activities and events to choose from and it is most certainly a familial atmosphere. I'm very happy my children attend this school.

OLL, Queens Village is a multi-cultural Catholic school in Queens. There is a strong sense of family and high educational values. My children have thrived in an environment of 'peacemakers' and have been able to learn greatly from interaction with peers from various backgrounds. Sadly though, the faculty is not as diverse as the student body, though the schol does not suffer because of it.

There are many academic programs such as Mrs. Rapuano art club were my child had lots of fun. In health and gym class taught by Mr.Hewiitt your child will exercise and learn.Mr. Nelan teaches them about all the fascinating things of things that music has to offer and we also don't forget about the prents who are very ivolved in the school Im a 8th grade student who has been with OLL since 3rd grade and if you ask me I think its the greatest school

Our Lady of Lourdes school is a pretty good environment for the children. The neighboorhood that it is located in is a very serene area.The children are very well diciplined. The education there is outstanding! All the children love it there. The teachers are well mannered and loving. Almost each student get individual attention and won't be left out. There is also counceling if the child needs. There are not many extracurricular activities. There is on the other hand art, physical therapy, music, library, and computers. But these are all mandatory. There are basketball, swimming, track, and cheerleading teams, but that is all. The level of parent involvement is moderate. Many parens choose to volenteer at school parties (Holoween party, ect.), at meetings, ect. Usually the parents help out when it involves the children instead of the

This is one of the best decisions we ever made in regards to our children education. My daugther got a full scholarship to st.francis prep (one of the best catholic high school in the nation) and one of NYC's specialized high school. This school is highly reccomended.

Our Lady of Lourdes is a wonderful family school. Most of the teachers have been teaching there for 20 years! And many of the teachers either attended the school when they were young or their children attended. The curriculum is A+ and challenging. The teachers always make themselves available to parents and are involved in all aspects of the school. There are many fun activities sponsored throughout the year and several sports teams you can join. My children started in Pre-K and are now in the middle grades. If you want a great learning atmosphere, structure, caring teachers and a first class education, Our Lady of Lourdes is the school!

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.
