Our Lady of Perpetual Help School is dedicated to the development of Christian values emanating from the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Following the Catholic tradition as was begun by the Dominican Sisters of Sparkhill, an active faith response within the school, parish, and outside community is emphasized to every child.
Therefore, as a school community in addition to our Liturgies, we not only celebrate, pray and worship together daily, our students are involved in a variety of service projects that call for community involvement that benefit the needy and elderly in our community and beyond.
The faculty and staff of Our Lady of Perpetual Help School are committed to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth of each child.
As a result, students consistently perform well on State Standardized tests surpassing local, national and Diocesan scores.
Our students are accepted by their first choice of the best Catholic and Specialized Public High Schools in the area and are often awarded scholarships.
