OLP is the BEST in private education! We have made lifelong friends through school events. The warmth of the OLP community never ceases to amaze me!! I know my children will succeed in high school and college because of the strong foundation OLP has built. We can't say enough good words about the faculty and how devoted they are to an enriching academic experience. If you don't believe me, ask villa, prep, mercyhurst and McDowell where their top students come from. GO CRUSADERS!

This school has pluses and minuses Some of the teachers are caring and push the kids just enough, while others are pretty curt with both kids and parents. The school is not very modern in looks or technology. They do not have much in the way of special resources for kids that need extra help or kids that are gifted, as I have both. They do not offer activities like home economics or wood working. As with any school, some of the parents are friendly and some are not. There are issues with cliques and such small class sizes that there are problems with kids getting along. Enrollment has dropped severely over the past 10 years.

Our son is thriving! He loves to learn. He loves to go to school. He has a small class with attentive, caring teachers. The community atmosphere is rich with active, friendly families. The faith life in the school is fantastic. There is a weekly school mass, daily prayers and readings shared by the entire school as well as the individual classrooms.

OLP is a great school. I am an alumni of the school and I send my children there. Our Lady of Peace teaches my children how to be strong both academically and spiritually

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.
