My daughter is going to OLPH school for 2nd year now, she's in Kindergarten. My husband and I are extremely happy not only the school are doing an excellent job academically as well as spiritually for the kids. I agree with the previous review on how the kids treat each other well no matter what grade they are in. Dr. Urbanski and the teachers are very well involve and they always strive to make the school a better place to learn and grow.
