    "My child has attended Our Lady of Sorrows school since Pre-K 4 and has loved every minute of it. All of the students take care of each other and treat each other with respect and love, like family. I am so glad we have a new principal as of last year. Ms. De Leon has made many positive changes to the school. I worry about where I will send my child after 8th grade."

    "I was new to OLSS this 2013-2014 school year to the 8th grade and really loved it! As many schools it has a few flaws. Most of the teachers are great! Only one or two that many students had issues with as well as I did. In the other hand the rest of the teachers and staff are nice and welcoming. If you need someone to talk to the teachers are there for you. Even though I only attend one year and didn't get to finish it was an awesome experience! I truly learned what real friendships are all about and felt stronger as an individual. My moral standards feel much better as well as my self-esteem. 8th graders as well as 7th and 6th graders do get a lot of projects. If you are lazy or a procrastinator you won't make it. As for the athletic department it still needs work a swim team would be great! If your kid is in need of help to getting to know who they really are as a person this school is great for them to develop their self image. As for the demerits it does get a little ridiculous sometimes the school just needs to work on a few things."

    "I am an OLSS graduate, and I have to say that this school is pretty cool. The students begin to bond with each other when they are young, and the K-3 program up to first grade is amazing. In elementary, kids might have a so-so education. In junior high: best years of my education. ACE teachers are really cool, and I believe we still have one. I have been in OLS since first grade with good grades, but I can't help but notice they are nice to the wealthy families. Field trips and events... a bit too much, fun, and yet expensive. Religion classes become fun, and boring classes become interesting. I am now in high school, and most of the concepts are complicated, yet when I was in OLSS, we learned the same thing in a simpler way (in a good way), meaning I'm ahead of my class. In junior high, students are required to take at least Spanish 1 and 2, knocking two years of Spanish in high school. I took Advanced Tech for my eighth grade year, and it really helps. This school is good in technology, and they encourage students in typing (good skill). All in all, this school's performance is better than what I hear from my public school friends."

    "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!!"
