9/27/2012parentOur daughter has been at OLPH for four years now and I cannot overstate how much we/she have loved it. The teachers are loving, but firm. The academic programs are excellent. The religious education teaches faith and community service to our children. It is a caring, nurturing educational environment all schools should aspire to.
4/21/2012parentNo way does this school deserve any stars. They allow bullying (mental & physical) & only care how much $ you donate. On several occasions I complained & nothing was done. I pulled my child out. Dont send your child here!!!
2/15/2011parentI cannot say enough great things about this school. From the Principal down to the parents everyone is involved and working to make this school great. When my husband and I went to the open house last year we were very impressed with the students - ask if they like the school and why and everyone wanted to tell us a story. The parents are involved in everything that goes on at the school and the teachers have "open door" policies, they give you their email address, home phone number etc. and let you know they are always available. With a teacher and a teachers assistant in every class the students get individualize instruction. I was a little taken aback at just how friendly the parents are and how quickly everyone knows your name but this really is a tight knit community. The before care and after care program is very helpful to working parents and the tuition is VERY reasonable. They have PC's in each classroom and they also have a computer lab with Apple Laptops. If you are looking for a small school with a lot to offer call and ask for a tour, you won't regret it!
2/13/2011parentWe moved from a larger Catholic School with multiple classes per grade and 29 + students in a class with no assistants to OLPH. In the previous setting with such large class size, there were limited opportunities for children to participate unless they were the top athletes or strongest students. Due to the smaller, more manageable numbers at OLPH, my child gets individualized attn from teachers and staff that help individualize instruction to the needs of the child. My child has been given leadership opportunities that would have never been available at a larger school. There are an abundance of extracurricular activities from Forensics, student government, Beta club, Sports(swimming, golf, soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball/baseball, football) , Chess Club, school newspaper, yearbook staff, SCouts, handchime choir, All West Tennessee music preparation, music lessons and Tae Kwon Do opportunities on campus after school. They also offer before and after care at about 1/2 the price of the previous school - this is an assett to working parents. I would hands down recommend OLPH!
2/13/2011parentOLPH is small- but has 240+ students overall. The largest class has 24. My child is part of the smallest class-9. And we are thrilled with the attention he is getting at this young age ! The children are all good friends and caring towards one another. There are countless opportunities for extracurriculars- sports, Scouts, Forensics, guitar, marshall arts, parish activities, etc. The principal and vice-principal are available at any time to help or to talk. They are so progressive and involved.
2/13/2011parentWe love OLPH! Our boys have a challenging, nourishing, well-balanced, competitive education at OLPH. Every year has been a great experience for us. In this day and age, SAFETY is more important than ever. This is a safe, secure campus in the heart of a great community. Fellowship among parents at our school is very strong. It is beneficial to know the people and the children who surround your children, and that's easy to do in a warm, welcoming atmosphwere. OLPH is a very clean school too. The teachers are wonderful, and being a small school, they have a chance to notice things about your child and give him or her a lot of one on one. OLPH has great spirit and many enriching extracurriculars. Graduates are very successful when they reach highschool - and that is the goal! I would suggest to any parent seeking a great, faith filled learning environment for a child, to come take a look at all we have to offer - from the computer lab, to our wonderful gym to even attending a mass with our students as they go weekly! OLPH is an excellent school!
2/13/2011parentMy children have been at OLPH for 6 years now and have BLOSSOMED in this safe Christian environment full of academic, social, and religious opportunity. The small class size ensures more teacher to student attention which meets the academic needs of each student. The parish offers religious youth groups and sports in which kids from school and parish readily attend together. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved in the school and are very much encouraged to actively participate in the Home & School Association to promote the consistent development of higher level education standards....go to the website and explore all the wonderful possibilities of this school and view our credentials and record of academic excellence....call for a tour and see for yourself what our school offers!
2/3/2011parentOLPH is a VERY small school. There is one class per grade and the class size is also small. (first grade has 8 students and the average size overall is about 15.) With the small school size you will find the resources, social opportunities for the children and extracurricular activities to be limited. Overall we have been pleased with the teachers and the curriculum, but would prefer more progressive leadership.
9/30/2010parentWe are so pleased with our experience at OLPH. The teachers and staff are committed to the academic and social development of the students. Our families are involved in the school and church; subsequently, we have a strong comfort level for the environment. We feel fortunate to be able to offer our children a strong academic foundation based in our Catholic faith.
9/28/2010parentExcellent school for my 3 kids. We have been there for 11 years and love the family environment, small class sizes and wonderful teachers that are helping our kids excel!
9/28/2010parentWe LOVE OLPH school!! We have been there for 7 years now and have 3 children attending. Although there are really good public schools here in Germantown, we chose OLPH for it's small, caring environment. Everyone at OLPH knows & loves our children - unlike some schools with 800 kids where the principal has no clue who your child is. The teachers and faculty at OLPH have been fabulous. We can't say enough about how prepared they are to teach the material in a fun way for the kids, while incorporating the Catholic faith and leading the kids to our fantasic test scores - which by the way, are the BEST in the area! Our children honestly love going to school every day, which is a blessing for parents. Picking this school was such a great decision for our family. We would HIGHLY recommend OLPH!!!!
9/28/2010parentI so love OLPH that it is hard to put into words- The teachers and staff are the best I have ever seen, been around or ever even heard of. My family started there 9 years ago and I thought I would only be attending for our Pre-K years. Could not and would not leave- Outstanding education, environment and family.
2/4/2010parentMy child is cared for, challenged and happy! The curriculum is well rounded and truly preparatory.
5/31/2009parentExcellent environment and staff. Teachers are able to truly know your child and meet his/her needs. Students learn in a positive environment while also learning the faith.
3/4/2008parentWe just started the 2k program this year and love it! OLPH has caring teachers, and involved parent community and is NAEYC accredited (and has been for several years) which is quite an accomplishment with the new standards. I highly recommend this school! I look forward to my kids continuing here through the 8th grade!
