This is a wonderful school with an amazing community. The teachers and staff are excellent. If you are looking for a school and parish that your child/children can grow in their faith and excel in their academics this is the place to be.

My child has attended this school for several years. While there are many things I do like, I recently have not been pleased with the overwhelming amount of work and lack of communication, collaboration between teachers. My child has been identified through certified and state testing as gifted and has routinely 2-3 hours of homework a night. Sometimes both a major test and essay plus routine work due all on the same day. While discipline is encouraged, there is definitely a fine line between too much and not enough.. I wholeheartedly believe that quality superceeds quantity and that children should be allowed to still be kids and have time for extracurricular activities. Which leads me to also bring up, the sports program is so, so and the advanced band sounds beginner, very beginner.Also, several teachers who have worked over 20 years have retired and replaced with unexperienced teachers. We are definately looking into other schools for our child.

First off most of the teachers here are great but some of them are just awful they get mad at you for the most ridiculous things like when my friends and I were picking up spear grass and one of the teachers yelled at us saying " STOP THAT YOU COULD PUNCTURE SOMEONE'S SKIN AND CAUSE THEM TO BLEED OUT AND GO TO THE HOSPITAL!" And we didn't even shoot it and all of my friends that were there got a behavior warning even the ones that weren't doing anything but the other teachers really help you and encourage you to do better the only reasons I gave this school a 3 star rating is because of some of the great teachers that are here and the great friends I have made

OLPH is by far the best school in San Antonio. My eyes water knowing she will be moving up to the next grade. Her teacher is absolutely amazing. The office staff has been extremely helpful from the beginning. I'm a parent with 3 kids and they seem to go out of their way all the time. The lunch lady is just the sweetest ever. There is not one negative thing I could say. We've been so impressed with OLPH since she attended their pre-school program. She learned to write her first and last name after week 1. Everything they do is above and beyond what any other school would do. We are sad that she will be leaving her amazing kinder class and moving up but I know she will be in good hands as everyone their is truly the best. Also wanted to point out that every time you walk in the class it smells so clean. Even in the Child Care Center it smells so clean. Toys are neatly organized and always cleaned. This is by far the best school in San Antonio.

OLPH is a top notch school in Greater San Antonio. This is our 3rd year there and my son is excelling like I could never imagine. While there could certainly be some improvements in some of the buildings, and a few other things, they are not issues that detract from this school graduating excellent students that are well ahead of the bell curve going into H.S.

My wife and I have been very satisfied with the overall quality of the teachers' academic abilities, but we are more impressed with the core Christian values which they instill in our 3 children - which complements what we teach at home. Parent involvement is high and opportunities to serve abound which results in a very warm, rich, and stimulating invironment, where the education provided is a 50/50 teacher/parent collaboration. There are areas that need improvement such as the IT infrastructure, but the administration is responsive to parent concerns, and progress is continually in motion. You will not find bullies or any unsafe/illicit elements on this campus as they are simply not tolerated. You will not find a Principal with more compassion, integrity, and intellectual drive than Jackie Palermo. Your child will be in a Christ centered educational milieu from the beginning to the end of their time at OLPH.

The is an outstanding school with a principal that does not let things slide. The previous reviewer should have brought the concerns to the principal. Any concerns or questions I have had have been addressed quite swiftly and always in a christian manner. Their priority is strong catholic, moral, and academic education. Great school!

While this school has strong morals, it lacks in ways. My child, who was a new student was not informed on many of the school assignments or customs, leading her to get in trouble and get bad grades. Also, I have found the older students and teachers to be very prejudice against people with mental disabilities, such as, teachers letting the students say 'retarded' and make fun of them in class.

This Blue Ribbon accredited school is an outstanding choice for parents looking for an opportunity to place their children in a challenging academic environment enriched by the values and teachings of a strong faith based community. Parents play an active role in daily activities which enhances the learning experience for the entire family. Excellent faculty is there because they are dedicated to the children and their lessons. I am a parent with three children presently attend the school.

A great family environment where academic excellence meets strong religious and moral values. We have two students at the school and are so pleased with every aspect of the school!
