This is a wonderful school from K-5./ However, very little teaching in 6-8 plus one teacher is a bully. Academics are very poor.

Class sizes are getting to large, 30+ students, our last teacher was not flexible enough to even provide a weekly syllabus upon request, they don't post syllabus online and rely on the child to self monitor progress, this was clearly an issue when monitoring homework, the issue was pointed out by multiple parents but the teacher was not willing to change her method, principal is nice but is not someone you can rely upon to resolve an issue, for an above average student that fits the mold, you re at the right place, average or below average, any type of special need, look else ware.

Compared to Columbus Public, there is no choice. However, if you have options I would explore. I have a child that needs extra attention and does not fit the mold for this school. OLP does not have the flexibility nor resources to make simple accomodations. Quality and engagement of teachers varies greatly by year and with only one class per grade, you have no options when you have issues. I have two children that attend and am considering withdrawing them after six years.

This is our first year at OLP. To be honest, I was a little unsure before school started but we love it! Talking about God answering prayer and putting us in the right place! What a wonderful school with a principal who knows every student and their parent by name. There is no place better! I love it, I look forward to the 8 and a half years we have left there with this child and look forward to our second one attending starting in 4 years.

We've had three children attend OLP. All very positive experiences. They were well prepared for high school, and eventually college. Our Lady of Peace School is part of the OLP Parish family, and is of great importance to the entire OLP community.

We have an active 6 1/2 year old who has thrived in both years of attendance. We have been pleased from the administrators down to the volunteer parents who help. We feel the smaller environment and catholic based curriculum are the perfect fit for our family. We will send our other children when the time comes. They have something we cannot put a price on, heart and pride. Statistically, they produce high performing students regularly that go on to esteemed universities and make their mark on the world. All in all, a very loving, nurturing caring environment for God's greatest miracles.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
