I have been a parent at OLS for 6 years now. This is a wonderful school! And although sadly our last principal ran the school down, I have to say our current one Mrs. Deleon, is amazing! She has been a part of OLS school for many years and knows what our school needs and requires. I do think that some of our teachers may be weak, but education begins and ends at home. And as for our catholic identity, our school does an excellent job!
We have been at the school for several years and was very disappointed with the previous principal and the direction they took the school. However, after hearing the church hired a new principal, I had to go in for a visit and hear for myself. I had similar concerns about the staff and teachers, however I can say with great certainty that things have really changed for the better at OLSS. I am very excited for new principal and her amazing vision and knowledge of what needs to change at the school. I will be keeping all my children at OLSS!!
There are many new and good changes going on with this school. They have a new principal as of June 1, 2013. There are already visible changes present and things looking very positive for the coming school year!
My child has attended since pre k4 and school was great up until 2nd grade. is now in 5th grade and totally lost in math and science. They have the worst teachers after 4th grade. Especially math and science. The new principal is just terrible. . The teachers run the school and pick on students that are not their favorites. They are nice only to the wealthy. They issue demerits to some students for minor things and not to students who do bad things.
Great for PK4-3. 4th grade, the teachers don't help much. 5th grade, half the teachers help and the other half get annoyed if you ask for help. I recommend PK4-5 for OLS, and then Cathey Middle School or Vanguard Academy
My son is in his second year at OLSS and we all LOVE his school. The montesorri method in preschool is great because they can learn at their own pace, plus they get to interact and meet students that are up to 2 years older than them.
Our children have attended OLSS for seven years. I believe that the school is great pre-K through second grade. The teachers in these levels are great. However, administration is fair. They do not handle discipline issues well and do not communicate well with the parents.
Our daughter, currently a 6th grader, has been at OLSS from pre-K. Even though I work as an administrator for the McAllen public schools (a really great school district), we decided, after really searching our minds, hearts and souls, to enroll our daughter at OLSS. Time has shown that we absolutely made the right decision! They do an excellent job of teaching and practicing displine and the difference between right and wrong. We like their tough scholastic agenda, as well as the ability to participate in extra-curricular and sports activities, in a smaller school environment. Students are well versed in computers and other technology. They are happy kids and it shows! We highly recommend OLSS! -Ed and Linda Romeros
