OLP has been a wonderful learning environment for my grandson! The preschool and Pre-k programs (Early Learning Program) He attuned music, art, Spanish, library, and gym classes along with a developmentally appropriate classroom curriculum. He loved his teachers!

Fantastic school with excellent leadership and superior teachers. Lots of required extra-curriculars (Spanish, art, music, PE, info lit (computer class), library) that occur twice per week for the elementary grades. Focus on relationships -- the older kids are mentors for the younger kids. Recent updates and renovations make the school a bright, welcoming place. I couldn't be more enthusiastic.
