My daughter came to this school in 6th grade, and I could not have asked for a better experience. 6th grade is typically a difficult time to switch schools, and the faculty and her fellow students could not have been more welcoming and accepting. She is an honor student and in the 8th grade, and the education she has received in all areas has been stellar and has enabled her to attain scholarships to several area high schools. The math, ELA, and science programs in this school are second to none! Although she had been in Catholic schools prior to this one, her faith has grown tremendously in this school through the religious education which she has received. I have truly never met a more caring group of teachers who really worry about the children and do everything in their power to meet each child's needs. These teachers have been a never-ending source of help, love, and encouragement to my daughter. When she graduates this year, our family will feel such a loss leaving this great school! I have no doubt that she is completely prepared for high school in all areas thanks to Our Lady of Good Counsel!

I have three children enrolled in OLGC for the past few years and have had nothing but exceptional teachers and experiences with the school. The communication between staff and parents has greatly improved each year of our enrollment. My children are very happy and our family has found a "home" within the school community. I highly recommend this school for anyone who wants a small school with big results.

An excellent Catholic school in the suburbs of Philadelphia. My daughter has loved the preschool program and teachers. The school has a great community of parents and educators For being a small school they have state of the art classrooms with technology, offer 3 languages, art, music program, gym, a science lab and media center. The population of students learns catholic moral values and are some of the nicest pre-school through 8th graders I've met. The students I've talked to are happy at OLGC and love the school.

If you are looking for a catholic education..this is the cream of the crop. The staff from top to bottom are phenomenal and caring. Every person/family is an individual and have their personal needs met. The principal door is literally always open; I see him everywhere around school and all the kids know him. I volunteer as the nurse and library aide so I have a unique opportunity to see a lot. The nursing office is staffed by the school district two days a week and family members that are registered nurses work in the office the other three days. I don't know if there are ANY other catholic schools that have 5 days a week of nursing! My daughter is only in kindergarten; but so far I think this school is the tops in catholic education. I interviewed many schools around and chose this school even though it was 20 minutes from home!

My children have received the the most advanced and aggressive education that I have ever seen. However, communication via PIE is limited to weekly updates. The use of online tools is helping to mitigate this, but it needs to be capitalized upon.

There is not very good communication from the school office and principal to parents. Most cases there is no communication at all. Things and issues of importance are usually found out through the rummor mill. Also always seems like the same parents get the call about volunteering no matter how many other parents try to help out.
