My daughter has almost completed her first year at OLPH as a 6th grade transfer. We are very happy with the school environment, the strong focus on academics and the calm, capable leadership of the principal. Our daughter has participated in the excellent sports program and is active in clubs. The most reassuring thing as a parent is the welcoming attitude of the other students. I believe the larger classes facilitate the more diverse classroom environment that allows each child to find their niche. She has thrived academically and socially, and my only regret is that we didn't transfer sooner!

My children attend OLPH school. I love the nurturing environment at the school. The children are given lots of opportunity to express themselves and share their individual talents. They are encouraged to be leaders. The parent involvement is extraordinary and positive from most of the school parents not just a couple of involved parents. Even thought the class size is large, the school is small enough so that every teacher k-8 knows every student. This school has a lot of spirit!

OLPH is a great school. The class size is very large; however, this hasn't posed a problem for my kids. There is a very strong emphasis on Catholic education and the development of the whole child: mind, body and spirit. Personal accountability is stressed. There are lots of extracirricular activities, and tons of parental involvement. The teachers seem very committed. There are some cliques, but that seems to be the case everywhere. Overall, I love the school and would definitely recommend it.

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.
