I feel the quality of the education is excellent. They have very educated teachers who go out of their way to make sure that all the kids get a really good education. They are compassionate, loving and caring for all the kids. Of course the christian values being taught is excellent. It is very important to teach the Bible and that is what they do. Especially in the tough world we live in now with all the peer pressure, they do an outstanding job. They work really hard with the kids in teaching them their academics, religion and dealing with life in general. The teachers are always willing to go the extra mile. If the kid(s) don't understand something, they go over it until they do. They also stay after hours to tutor those who need it. The kids seem to have fun, while they are learning and that is so important. That is what keeps them interested in school and staying in school to learn. They really care, and that is something so hard to find these days.

OLG didn't really equip me. I guess I would have been considered above average as a student there, and the best they could ever do was Honors Math, which, while a great program, was the sole program outfitted for above-average kids. In high school I had a very, very hard time adjusting to honors courses because at OLG I simply coasted through everything and wasn't ready to actually work towards a high grade in high school. Overall, the education isn't bad, but high-achieving kids will not get attention they need.

As all catholic schools, Grace is a fine school if you have bright child, or even a problem child...the bright child will soar and the problem child will get the discipline he/she needs...but its the grey areas that this school fails...they are not equipped to handle children with learning or behavior disorders and have no intentions of changing. (Yes, funding is a problem, but it cost nothing to open ones eyes). Most of the teachers are wonderful, but there are a select few that are not...they are jaded and do not have the children's best interest at heart. Unfortunately, both of my children were students to two of these teachers and the damage is irreversible.... its sad too, I love the school and the good teachers...and the new principal....but the bad apples definitely spoiled it for my family.

Class sizes have grown over the years and are now getting too big for the teachers to handle. This year's teacher was quick to judge my child and did not accept him for the individual that he is. Teacher would not respond to phone calls or letters and would say that she has been too busy. We would not know about issues until progress report time even after numerous attempts to speak with the teacher throughout the year. We are hoping that next year's teacher is more available and willing to work with our child.

I think OLG is a great school and I would recommend it to anyone. The teachers are wonderful and so are the students. They have a lot of fun and really enjoy going there.

OLG offers the small class advantage you dont get in public school. I can have one on one with the teachers at anytime and they work with your children one on one if they need help. I would not send my children anywhere else.

I feel that OLG is a wonderful school for my daughters. I have had nothing but positive experiences there. Having gone to OLG myself, I wanted my children to experience the same things I did. They both love their school and they are learning not only Math,ILA,Religion,etc...they are being taught respect, discipline,love,understanding,and everything that we as parents teach our children at home. I would never send my child anywhere else.

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.
