OLV has been a blessing for our family. Great academics with a real family feel! My children have attended since preschool, and we have loved every year here. My children are known on an individual basis by their teachers and are encouraged to learn and grow to the best of their ability. Supportive and involved priests from the parish hold lovely school Masses where kids are encouraged to participate. We love this school!!!
