School Notes

  • We are proud of our students' performances; with their acquired skills and knowledge, they willing embrace, meet and excel  the high goals and expectations set for them academically, socially, spiritually and physically.
  • To help individualize and differentiate, our teachers use a variety of engaging programs that create excitement for learning, including technology and a variety of supplemental resources, such as the Renaissance Reading and Math and the Carnegie Algebra Programs. Our students consistently score in the upper ninetieth percentile on The Iowa Tests of Basic Skills.  Students also take the TCAP Writing Assessment.
  • Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School provides a safe, protective and comfortable learning environment, that allows students to focus on academis, sports and the bonds of friendship. One way we accomplish this task is by having small class sizes, which allows the students to develope nurturing relationships with their teachers and peers.

We currently have 2 children and a 3rd who will all be attending OLPH. Having attended private school all my life, I know the importance of a faith based school who teaches not just academics, but personal values and ethics. Knowing every morning when I drop off my children feeling secure that they are in a SAFE and LOVING environment is worth all the gold in the world. I would fully recommend this school for any family considering sending their children to a Christian school. Choosing OLPH has been the greatest blessing when we moved here in 2017.

MY children have been attending OLPH for 8 years and we have loved it! The teachers and administration are innovative, enthusiastic, and committed to nurturing a lifelong desire to learn. My shy son has come out of his shell, and his sister has learned to challenge herself and take risks. With a focus on virtues, my children are being nurtured every day to fulfill their spiritual and academic potential and to have a growth mindset. They have also had the opportunity to participate and learn new sports without the pressure of "trying out". When the pandemic hit last year, our school transitioned smoothly to online learning. I appreciated the thought that went into assignments and that my children didn`t have to spend 8 hours a day online for school. This year we were given the choice to come in person, or continue remotely. The calendar was adjusted with consideration to COVID, and there have been NO issues at all. Being able to attend school in person has greatly benefitted my children.

I went to Olph as a child back in the early 70s. My parents worked hard to send all of my brothers and sisters there. It was a wonderful experience! Of faith and belief and education, that I still have with me to this day. I sent my children there back in the 90s and early 2000s. They too have fond memories of attending school there. From the teacher's, coaches and administration as a whole. They have grown up to be wonderful adults, with their own families now. The tradition continues!! God bless Olph.

We are so happy to be a part of this school community. My children are excited to attend school; the staff is exceptional; and the atmosphere is friendly and loving. This is a wonderful faith-based school with dedicated staff, small student to teacher ratio, challenging curriculum, and lots of family-centered activities and events on campus to keep families involved and invested in their children's school.

This is our 3rd year at OLPH and I can honestly say my entire family is happier with the experience here with each passing year. My son loves his friends, the opportunities he has for learning and extracurricular activities and yes, even his teachers! My husband and I love the faith-based education in a loving environment and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the community of other families. I wouldn't choose to send my child anywhere else!
