My child has attended Our Lady of Sorrows school since Pre-K 4 and has loved every minute of it. All of the students take care of each other and treat each other with respect and love, like family. I am so glad we have a new principal as of last year. Ms. De Leon has made many positive changes to the ...  Read more

I was new to OLSS this 2013-2014 school year to the 8th grade and really loved it! As many schools it has a few flaws. Most of the teachers are great! Only one or two that many students had issues with as well as I did. In the other hand the rest of the teachers and staff are nice and welcoming. If you ...  Read more

I am an OLSS graduate, and I have to say that this school is pretty cool. The students begin to bond with each other when they are young, and the K-3 program up to first grade is amazing. In elementary, kids might have a so-so education. In junior high: best years of my education. ACE teachers are really ...  Read more

I have been a parent at OLS for 6 years now. This is a wonderful school! And although sadly our last principal ran the school down, I have to say our current one Mrs. Deleon, is amazing! She has been a part of OLS school for many years and knows what our school needs and requires. I do think that some ...  Read more

We have been at the school for several years and was very disappointed with the previous principal and the direction they took the school. However, after hearing the church hired a new principal, I had to go in for a visit and hear for myself. I had similar concerns about the staff and teachers, however ...  Read more

There are many new and good changes going on with this school. They have a new principal as of June 1, 2013. There are already visible changes present and things looking very positive for the coming school year!

My child has attended since pre k4 and school was great up until 2nd grade. is now in 5th grade and totally lost in math and science. They have the worst teachers after 4th grade.

Great for PK4-3. 4th grade, the teachers don't help much. 5th grade, half the teachers help and the other half get annoyed if you ask for help. I recommend PK4-5 for OLS, and then Cathey Middle School or Vanguard Academy

My son is in his second year at OLSS and we all LOVE his school. The montesorri method in preschool is great because they can learn at their own pace, plus they get to interact and meet students that are up to 2 years older than them.

Our children have attended OLSS for seven years. I believe that the school is great pre-K through second grade. The teachers in these levels are great. However, administration is fair. They do not handle discipline issues well and do not communicate well with the parents.
