Many teachers are excellent and truly care about the children. However, the school is severely lacking in leadership. The principal has a "we can't do that" attitude and allows his office staff to run the school. Many issues are not dealt with and it seems the principal feels it is easier to talk about anything else but deal with the real issues. Even small problems can't be handled such as opening a gate or asking double parked cars to move. Forget dealing with any big issue. Several inneffective teachers and no actions taken. Could be a great school but needs to be changed from the top.
OLHC is a wonderful school with an equally wonderful principal. It has been our school for nearly 10 years and have seen many changes over the years. With the new regionalization program in the Archdiocese there have been some changes that unless educated about the system, one wouldn't understand certain guidelines. I personally have seen the current principal jump through hoops to help students. If you want a safe, controlled and nurturing environment for your children then send them here!
Is a nice small school with good teachers. Has the potential to be a great school if it had proper leadership.The current principal is very ineffectual and does not want to hear about making any changes. Instead of trying to do what is in best interest of students,his response is "Well we can't do that". A good and effective leader will ask for parents support and figure out how to implement changes.
its a second home us, it has a warm family like atmosphere. it grows academically each year. students and staff are kind and compassionate.
OLHC is one huge family. The spirit of and in the school is uplifting. The education provided, the faculty/staff interacting with our children, the nurturing environment, the extra-curricular activities, as well as the love and faith with which our children are filled, each, in their own way, make us proud to say that we are part of the OLHC family!!!
Excellent education, students are well prepared to go on to top high schools.
I love OLHC because you feel as if you are part of one big family. It is a small school and everyone knows everyone and I find that to be very welcoming. The faculty happens to be very caring and nurturing to the students and I am certainly very happy with OLHC!!!!
Wonderful loving teachers. New Principal Graduates receive many High School scholarships and go on to college.
We are very happy with OLHC. Both the staff and the parents are focused on what's important - the children, their education and their well being.
It is a great school. Its small size makes everyone feel comfortable.
our lady help of christians is a wonderful school with caring teachers. Not only do the teachers care about education,they care about each student in every way. We are one big faithful heart.
It is a nice learning environment and everyone looks out for each other
