School Reviews

1 month ago
Two of my children currently attend OLP and we have found the quality of the curriculum and the teachers and staff to be top notch. The small class sizes allow teachers to know exactly where your child is academically and challenge him/her appropriately. The warm school community provides a nurturing environment for our children and has been a tremendous source of support for our family. We could not be happier with our choice to send our children to OLP.
