14 Parent Reviews for Our Lady Of Hope Regional School
Let me just start with if I could give this school 0 stars I would but I can't. So my 9 years at that school were HORRIBLE. I would not recommend this school to my worst enemy that's how horrible this school is. Let me just start with the staff. The 6,7,8th grade teachers are AWFUL except a couple. And
... Read more the school says they "don't allow bulling and if there is we will put a stop to it" well I was bullied 5 years there and the principles and staff did nothing to help me, it caused me mental and physical damage. I went into a very deep depression, not just because of the bulling but because of the teachers. If you do something wrong instead of correcting you they talk behind your back. They also do not make ANY adjustments for children with special needs. I myself have depression,ADHD, anxiety, the list goes on. My parents have talked to them countless times and they do noting about it. So if you really want to send your child here after this you are waisting your money when the GT or TWP public schools at 100 times better and deal with the major issues. So I hope this changed your mind about Our Lady of Hope school. Read less

My children transferred into Our Lady Of Hope from another school in the area, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about it! We have all been warmly welcomed by the administration, teachers, office staff, parents and fellow students. During the summer my children were assigned challenging and meaningful
... Read more summer work to prepare for the year. The school clearly holds high, yet reasonable academic standards. Communication from the teachers and administrators is excellent! I am impressed by the school's efforts to keep the children safe and the building itself secure. My children's teachers all go above and beyond for their students. I am SO happy with OLOH!! Read less

I am also a former student, and I'll never forget how miserable I was while I attended school here. What I went through while I went here still bothers me to this day and I am now in college. I would not recommend this school to any family for many reasons. The staff does nothing about bullying although
... Read more they claim it will not be tolerated. I was tortured for YEARS by the majority of my classmates and my mother even brought it to the principal's and teachers' attention numerous times, yet nothing was once done about it. Even some of the teachers purposely picked on me during lessons. Very unprofessional and disrespectful. The overall atmosphere is cliquish as someone stated below, and just plain awful. I eventually ended up transferring to the Washington Township school district and it was the best decision my family and I have ever made. Better education, better atmosphere, better people. Please save yourselves the money and trouble and look into a different school. Read less

As a former student I should say that this school was terrible. I had the worst 5 years of my life here. I left this school 3 years early. This school made me almost go to summer school, as they would say, because I was failing religion class. Also, you have to pay Thousands of dollars to go here and

This school is now called Our Lady of Hope and i love it!! I go there now and it is amazing! the school offers electives in 6th 7th and 8th grade and specials for the rest. The teachers truly care about the students. The tuition is about 3,000 per student but it's worth it. I have heard from people who
... Read more transferd to public school out of OLH and they say how easy the work is at public schools compared to OLH. My two brothers gradulated from this school and are doing great. My oldest brother is being offered at least 10,000 academic money for college. My other brother went into Honors Algebra II as a freshman. I fully recomend this school. Read less

go to this school, now called Our Lady Of Hope School, and I suffer each and every day. First of all, it cost close to $10,000 a student, yes 10,000 bucks for each child. Second, the teachers have no respect for the student's personal lives. They work each and every child to death. Each student will

The principals are disrespectful and plain mean, assigning students from every grade, including kindergarten, a 3000 word essay on a random subject (e.i "shoe size in Africa"), just for whispering in the hallway. I have suffered for years in this school, and I don't want it to happen to anyone else. Read less

I went to this school growing up. i am now attending my first year medical school in fall of 2009. I frequently think about how St. Judes shaped me into the person I am today. My two older sisters also attended here. The oldest is not a pediatrician and the second is attending law school.
