    "My daughter has been struggling in math and spelling since the beginning of the year.Her teacher has went above and beyond any of my expectations to help her.We have come to the conclusion that she needs to be tested for learning disabilities.This is not an easy thing for any parent to hear.Sr. Stephanie and the teacher have been so supportive and helpful.I could not be any more thankful for them.They really have stepped up and they really care about all of the children at this school.I have seen this first hand.God has placed these special people here to care for all of our children. Thank you"

    "We have been members of the Parish way before my child attended the school.Yes, they do things a certain way at our school.It's called a "stewardship way of life". We all must take part in this in order for it to work.When you sign the covenant at the beginning of the year you are promising to take part in this.When you do not do what you have promised you will be held accountable.This seems to be a hard thing for some people to understand.Our school is teaching our children valuable life skills spiritually ,academically and morally.There are Three parts to this way of life "time,talent and treasure" when you leave one or more of these things out."IT DOES NOT WORK"! As for pros and cons pros definitely out way the cons.As far as "clickly/gossipy group of parents. "Really"? I personally have not seen anything remotely close to that. But,if anyone else has.Unfortunately these things happen in life no matter where you are. As good christian people we should know how to deal with such matters. I love our school in it's entirety!"

    "My child attends this school and it's ok. Not as wonderful as everyone makes it out to be. PROS 1. CHEAPEST Catholic school on the south side 2. Small caring community of teachers 3. Economical sports program 4. After-care program 5. Christian foundation 6. Good lower grade teachers (K-5) 7. Band program 8. Parental involvement CONS 1. Upper grades lacking in things. a) don't teach to correctly write book reports yet expect kids to do them, b) don't teach typing yet want reports typed 2. Don't teach a language even though they advertise it 3. No morning care 4. Clicky/gossipy group of parents; there are a few good ones though 5. Although economical, sports program is mediocre 6. Little priest presence in school 7. Excessive homework 8. The scholarships are few and they are given out by a H.S. not this school 9. Personally know a few former grads who have/are struggling in H.S. in Math and English 10. $50 fine for not attending mass on Sundays 11. Issues are not handled well, sometimes dismissed altogether 12. They have a "love it or leave it" attitude For lower grades this school is great! Once your child starts Jr High, it'll be wise to transfer them out."

    "We could'nt be happier with the choice we have made to bring our children to OLOR. This school has been nothing but welcoming to us from the day we steppped foot in the door. I echo what some other parents have said about " if you don't like it please leave" I do truely believe we are a community of caring people and it reflects in the parents, teachers and staff. Sister has set rules put into place for a reason, if this bothers some people, then sorry. Too many people go through life thinking that rules are made for others and not for them, this is not what we should be teaching our children. Every year the staff beams with pride when the announcement goes out about all the academic scholarships that are given. Usually the only ones not getting a scholarship are those attending a public school. We are small but we are mighty. our academics are what they are and the scores speak for themselves. My children are extremely happy here. They know that it is a balance between hard work and fun. This school has done just that. Many people like to stand on the sidelines and complain, come to a meeting and maybe you can fix the complaint or at least try."
