    "I walked into OLS school 3 years ago the mom of a very shy, timid and clingy little boy. I have since watched him come to life and become independent, relaxed, confident, and most of all tremendously happy. He has been gifted the benefit of an amazing and compassionate community that I wouldn't trade for the world. Coupled with outstanding academics, OLS is a truly special place. He did have an incident with a child picking on him and the administration was supportive and thorough in their handling of the matter. It was taken care of in days time and I was impressed with how thoughtfully it was handled. My son and I have been warmly embraced and for that I am very thankful. OLS is a school of high standards within a nurturing and respectful atmosphere. Submitted by a parent"

    "Our Lady of Sorrows School located on a beautiful campus in White Plains, N.Y. provides many great opportunities for children to grow academically and socially. O.L.S. offers, in addition to the basic academic subjects, Religion, Spanish, Art, Music and Physical Education. Extra-curricular activities include Band, Drama, Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Yearbook, Student Council, Chess Club, Girl and Boy Scouts. Children attend Mass monthly, as well as, on Holy Days and Holiday Celebrations. Teachers provide extra help prior and after-school. There are also many adult functions and family events to participate."

    "On this, the morning after an extraordinarily special 8th grade mass/dinner and the day of 8th grade graduation, I though I would come on and write how truly happy my husband and I are with our decisions to send our daughter to OLS. I was deeply saddened to see the previous entries (I cannot call them reviews as they are just lists of complaints). I am the parent of not only an 8th grader but also a 6th, 4th, and 3rd graders. NO SCHOOL IS PERFECT and certainly a small catholic school is not the place for every child. But I can tell you that for our family, the positives of a solid Catholic education paired with strong academics and an even stronger sense of community far outweigh any of the areas that could use improvement. I cannot even begin to list all the ways OLS has had a positive impact on the lives of our children. If you want a true sense of what OLS is all about please come visit and speak with the 99% of the families who are more that proud to call OLS their school, don't listen to the disgruntled few. I wish I could sign my name because I would, happily."

    "My experience has been a positive one, since my children began at OLS 6 years ago. OLS embodies a great school community through the classroom instruction, assemblies, Masses, holidays, after-care, charity fund-raisers and extra- curricular activities. Christian values are weaved through every subject, event and daily routines. The teachers all hold Master's Degrees and are highly effective individuals who have brought the best out of each of my children. When speaking with my children's teachers I was always confident that they really knew my child and understood their strengths and weaknesses. My children are completely different in almost every aspect and OLS has met both their needs. They make themselves available prior and after school via phone, email or in person. Having the opportunity to volunteer in many ways, even though I'm a working Mom, has been a great way for me to develop friendships with parents with whom I have common interests. OLS was the right choice for our family."

    "One of the unfortunate facts about this school is that it has become attractive to families whose children clearly require more assistance and resources than the school can provide. While the educational standards are much higher than the local public schools, over time some classes have been dragged down by a handful of children who have such severe behavioral problems that the whole class suffers as a result. Complaints that are made about bullying and disruptive behavior in classes are met with a repeated we re handling it response, and then nothing changes and there is never any follow-up. When parents complain, privately or in PTA meetings, the school administration spends more time trying to deny there is a problem rather than trying to figure out how to fix it. Parents are very involved in supporting the school through volunteer work and fundraising, which gives the school a close-knit, family-like feel. It tends to be the same families that get involved, largely because of very exclusive cliques as well as the complete lack of action of the school to reach out to new families. The school also does not offer much in the way of after-school activities."
