I am glad this school now goes to 8th Grade!!!!! It is so wonderful to have a strong academic program in a safe, calm, Christian environment for older students.

My children attended OLF. The falculty and teachers are very friendly. They provided a good foundation for my kids. I would recommend anyone seeking a Catholic School in this area to consider OLF. The kids loved it there.

This school has made a huge difference in the life of my son. He has developed academically and socially. He will stay there through 8th grade because it is such a wonderful faith filled environment.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
