Our Lady Of Perpetual Help Catholic School

Founded in 1939 as an institution for the evangelization and education in the Catholic faith of the children of the Parish and the greater Rocky Mount Community.
Academic excellence is a high priority, and we strive to enable each student to reach his or her potential, guiding them to develop their unique gifts and talents.
Our school creates an atmosphere of positive self-esteem, mutual respect for every individual, and a sense of responsibility for our neighbor.
We are proud of the rich diversity of races, nationalities, cultures and creeds represented by our student body.
Our administration and faculty are fully aware of the primary position of parents in the education process.
We offer our assistance and support to parents in order to enable them to be the first and best teachers of their children.
We also share in the responsibility of the pastor and pastoral staff of the parish in teaching not only the Catholic religion, but, all religions.
Faith in God is just not a subject here but a way of life.

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.
