We transferred our children to Our Lady of Sorrows mostly for our daughter when she was entering into the fifth grade, but because we also had a third grader, we wanted them to be both at the same school/same academic calendar. Looking back, OLS has been a very positive and wonderful choice for our family. Our Lady of Sorrows School embraces faith, and a Christian curriculum is taught across all subjects. There are small class sizes, loving and supportive teachers and staff, and kindness is evident. As a parent, when I have wanted to be involved in my child’s education it was welcomed and encouraged. I have served outside the classroom as a volunteer in many capacities: in the lunchroom, visits to the Nursing Home, organizing fundraising events and at sporting events. A family type atmosphere is encouraged throughout all grades and older students assist younger students for some all-school events, library trips and at worship (Mass). We have been very pleased with not only the academic standards but with the general caring atmosphere at the school. Students are encouraged to grow, incidences of behavior are minimal and are addressed immediately. Most importantly, reconciliation and forgiveness is honored.
It is with great support that I highly recommend Our Lady of Sorrows School.
