Dedicated teachers and staff work to inculcate solid values for all students, not only the Catholic ones.


Posted October 12, 2007

Our son has attended OLC since he was a 3 year old preschooler. He is now in second grade and he loves his school. When I call or go in to help out I am always greeted in a friendly manner. We are especially pleased with the religious education our son is receiving. We are also quite impressed with the music education program. I am very happy with my choice to send my child to OLC school!

Our Lady of Charity is a wonderful school. The faculty is loving and caring and truly concerned about each child as an individual. There is a strong line of communication with parents. My child is attending the preschool at present. My husband and I are extremely pleased with his development. Christian values as well as social skills and academics were introduced. We feel Our Ladu of Charity is our child's home away from home.

OLC offers us a quality alternative to the public school system. My children receive an education in a community based school where morals and respect are components of its strong foundation.

Our family moved to this community two years ago. I worried about my child going to a new school, trying to fit in and keeping up her 'B' average. The first day of school the staff and children were so kind and caring, I knew we had made the right choice. In this day and age, children need encouragement, discipline and love, not only from home, but school as well. My daughter is growing into an outstanding young adult who cares about people and her community. And attending OLC reflects the Christian teachings.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
