I love this school, I have been here for 3 years. I know the school pretty well, and the pastor is very friendly to me. I'm in 4th grade now and I am in Belgium, so I've been there until 3rd grade. I miss OSL, it was my 2nd most favorite school in my lifetime!!-Hannah Kim-Hannah Kim

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
