    This school is a diamond in the rough! Highly qualified teachers, supportive parent community, articulate and bright students, and a determination to provide each child with a meaningful Catholic education. The teacher to student ratio is about 1:12! I have watched my own children grow and flourish into confident students per the number of opportunities they encounter daily to be leaders among their peers.

    Finally, I have watched the school improve with new technology (1:1 in middle school), new paint, upgraded security, relocation of the preschool to the main floor of the school building for better inclusion of all families, and this summer they are building an outdoor learning space!

    This growing community has been amazing for me and my family.

    We came to OLP when our oldest was entering 5th grade. The public school we were at in Minneapolis us loved by many, but we just didn’t have the same experiences. We saw our children being lost in the crowd, not getting the one on one attention they needed sometimes and were lacking a community that truly knew them. From day one our children at OLP have been seen, understood, and challenged. We are not practicing Catholics, but we see the value in this school and the education they are receiving. We have one child with ADD and one on the spectrum and both of our children’s needs are being met and respected. Our younger children also attend their Pre- K programs and we can’t say enough Good things about that Program as well! We are so happy we’ve found a school community for our children to be in from pre-k to 8th grade!
    We toured 7 schools in Minneapolis and OLP stood out for two reasons: Personal attention and quality learning experience. These strengths have been affirmed as we've become part of the OLP community.

    From the personal tour with Principal Berry to every teacher & specialist in the school greeting my daughter by name within one week, the personal connection and attention to every student's needs is unmatched in my experience. The parents, teachers and students are all part of a community in a way I haven't experienced in any other school system. I am very happy that my daughter can get the personal attention we want for her to thrive as a student and growing person.

    The academic experience is exceptional as well. From the "big buddy" system that fosters accountability and responsibility to the personalized reading and language learning, OLP has offered the flexibility we want so our daughter is able to learn at the level that challenges her every week.
