    "My husband and I are very happy we transferred our children to OLGC. I am surprised a parent complained about the fundraising and volunteer requirement. Every Catholic School we looked at had a fundraising and volunteer requirement. OLGC is doing nothing different from other Catholic schools. Even public schools have fundraisers. I am a working mom and I understand that it is hard to volunteer but I make the time to help out my school because I want to set an example of Christian service for my children. I am also disappointed that a parent would complain about their child wearing a specific t-shirt to the school picnic which was done for safety reasons. The child was not required to buy a t-shirt but could wear any t-shirt in the color assigned to that grade level. A nominal fee was requested to cover all the picnic costs; however there were many FREE events at the school such as the ice cream socials, the Winter Olympics, movie nights, back to school donuts and coffee, Pi Day and Reading Day. OLGC has a very dedicated team of teachers and a dynamic principal who focus on academic excellence and religious education. We would not send our childrent anywhere else."

    "While I appreciate the efforts of the school, sadly I pulled my children out. OLGG has gotten greedy. It seems they are asking every month for more money for their "fundraising" and it is required! Now for next year they also are requiring parents to volunteer at least 4 times a year or pay $50 for each time they are not able to! For working parents this is very difficult. You have to mandatory sell calenders or donate $200 and donate $100 in another fundraiser, REQUIRED! Plus if you are too busy working hard to pay the crazy tuition for your child, plan on donating an extra $200 for the volunteering you cannot do. Now Father David is gone and I can only see this school going further downhill. If $3600 a year tuition doesnt hurt you, add on the extra $1000 you will be required to pay before the year is over in fundraising, fees, and supplies. They will nickle and dime you for every cent you have. This year they are even making kids pay for their own end of year picnic! Did I mention that the parents have to send in food to supply for this picnic? The fee is for "facepainting and colored hair spray"! Also, we had to purchase a t-shirt with a class color on it. Please!"

    "A curriculum, as the state requires according current to standards - does not exist. Teachers completely lack camaraderie and often fight publicly... in of the children. Teachers are not up to date in terms of teaching practices and seem to be stuck in the 1970's or before. The school is in the hands of the pastor, and the buildings and grounds supervisor; none of them are trained educators and both lack college degrees of any consequence. The local public schools are a far better, and cheaper, option."

    "I love OLGC, it's a great school, my son is in Kinder and is already reading. I am very pleased with the new principal, I think he is doing an outstanding job in reorganizing the school. I would recommend OLGC to any parent interested in enrolling their children into a good catholic school. Religion is one of my son's favorite subjects, always comes home telling me the new things he learn about our Catholic Faith."

    "OLGC is the place to be. The warm and loving environment helps all the students succeed. Both of my children have done well academically and socially thanks to the hard working faculty. I will never regret the financial sacrafice it took to send my children to OLGC!"
