    "Some of the non-sense issues I have seen parents complain about are specifically around their child being below average or needing special education. Calvary is a fantastic school and has been that way for my kids for the past 6 years. They tend to cater to above average kids more as they have a tracking program that starts in 3rd grade. My older boys are scoring at the highest percentile in their teranova testing and both have 95+ averages. The teachers are fantastic, the curriculum is challenging the way it should be, and I highly recommend it."

    "Our son has attended this school since pre-K and is now on his way to second grade. We feel he has had some awesome teachers up until first grade. The 1st grade teacher's method of communicating our sons behavior was poor at best. He was sent home daily with a calendar which works on a number system to indicate if he misbehaved and how. The problem is that we could not gleem the true issue based on this. To complicate and frustrate the matter there were multiple instances in which we were notified days after an incident. When we addressed the poor communication with the teacher we informed that our son should be able to tell us about his day. While that maybe true one would hope a teacher would be willing to take less than 2 minutes to explain the issue when questioned. We are paying for this education! Just imagine trying to gather facts from a 1st grader about their misbehavior several days after an incident. We are giving OLC another year in hopes that this was one bad apple and not a pattern forming. In pre-K and Kindergarten our involvement in our sons classroom performance and behavior was highly encouraged and I hope that to be our experience with 2nd grade."

    "By and far the best grade school in N.E. Philadelphia. Look at the quality of students graduating yearly and you can see that this school is producing fine young Americans and Christians. Our son attends OLC and we believe his Catholic education and what he is learning is worth every penny. As for public schools in the area, no offense, but 'free' doesn't equate to 'best'."

    "I've had four children go through OLC and for the average student it's a great school, for most above average students it is also a great school. Although Sister Mildred (the principal) does try to help kids that are struggling, sometimes the staff isn't as receptive. My 2 above average kids had little to no problems, both easily got into Prep schools and got good grades, etc, my average student got good grades, learned, no problems. My child with ADD had nothing but problems, and at times seemed to be looked at as a problem to his instructors. Overall I love the school, would recommend to others, but with caution if your child has any form of LD."
