My children and family are happy to be part of the OLL Community. My children have a solid catholic foundation through their studies and teachers and have made many friendships (grades 3 and 7). I have been happy with the school administrators and find the teachers easy to connect with.

Our Lady of Lourdes School is a loving, character building, academically strong school that prepared my children well for high school and beyond. The principal knows all the students and talks candidly with them. The teachers integrate technology into their lesson plans and often create learning tools from the Internet in addition to the textbooks. My children are responsible adults now due largely from their Catholic education at OLL.

My son attended the preschool at Our Lady of Lourdes, called Rose Cottage Preschool last year. From the moment I stepped in the door, you feel so welcome and at ease. My son loved the preschool and has flourished immensely there. It is wonderful to be a part of the Our Lady of Lourdes school and community. We love it and would highly recommended the preschool and school.
