VERY effective - they show and teach about patience, understanding, respect, and caring for others. Even the youngest children at this school see and show that the teaching style is effective.

My son began with OLMC in the fall last year, enrolled in Pre-K - age 3. He has never been happier and is learning SO much. OLMC faculty, staff, and teachers TRULY care for these children and their futures. My son loves going to school, loves his teacher, and loves OLMC and everything this school is about. Its heart warming to see his growth both academically and spiritually. So glad we found OLMC!!!

This is our 6th year at OLMC and both of my children love it! We love the teachers and students, and they are learning at a perfect pace - driven to do their best, but not overwhelmed. We'd recommend OLMC to anyone!

Very intense ...some kids feel overwhelmed if they are not used to high demands and homework.

My daughter has been attending this school since Kindergarten and just loves it. The curriculum is at a high level which is great to prepare and transition your child for High School and later on for College. Parents involvement in your childs education is highly encouraged. Overall I would totally recommend OLMC to others if you want the best available education for your child.

Sr Dominic is the best. She knows exactly how to calm students down if they get into trouble. Her positive attitude and patience are amazing. Overall such a pleasant aura around her. My child loves her and looks forward after each break in seeing her again.

Top notch academics. Great environment with other families of similar priorities - academics, hard work, classic subjects (cursive, thank you), moral teaching, and behavior. Great sense of community with other parents and families. Extra curricular at the lower grade levels can leave a little to be desired, but there are plenty of opportunities for sports outlets elsewhere.

My sincerest thanks goes to Sr. Dominic, the principal, sets the tone for the school. Everyone is keenly aware of the love and compassion directed toward the students. Sr. Dominic can be counted on to handle all the challenges of administering a school, but also challenges encountered by students and their families. She is a model of compassion, leadership, and dedication.

Because the faculty and staff care deeply for the students, their efforts to offer the best education is amplified. Each student is a recognized individual, whose needs are met to allow them to do their best.
