As the parent of a former student, all I have to say is, "There is a God, and He answered our prayers when He shut down this school."

I went to olmc and it is the best school around the area. It has the highest academics of education. If you want your child to have a great education I suggest you send them to olmc. The teachers and principal are the best and highly educated. They really care for your children and guide them through life.

OLMC is the worst school you could possibly send your child to. If you are having trouble deciding where to send your child to and you live around the OLMC area, do not send them there, send them to George Sharswood school right around the corner. The teachers there actually care about the children, will do anthing for them, and it is really just such a great school.

I graduated from OLMC in 2006. This school is beyond amazing. The curriculum exceeds expectation and the faculty are among the greatest men and women I have ever met. They truly care and are there for each and every one of the students. While that has made up for the lack of programs aside from sports, they now have music instruction, Spanish, and PE (the last of which has been re-added). If you can afford it, go for 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.
