    OLSH prepared me extremely well for life beyond high school. I received opportunities that I could not have had at other schools, because the school is small enough that you matter and have a voice, but large enough to provide a wealth of options for activities, athletics, and more. In some cases, OLSH offers activities and support that are not even available in larger public school settings. The teachers truly care about you, many of them are even coaches or run activities at OLSH. OLSH is a family, a word that can sound cliche, but is true of the school community. The fact that it is an independent school and not diocesan is also a draw, because they make decisions independently under the guidance of the Felician Sisters and can do so without diocesan approval or oversight. My closest friends are still the people I went to high school with -- I even married my high school sweetheart! We can't wait until our children are old enough to attend too!

    Let me preface with I enjoyed my sport so much, made amazing friends, and had some wonderful teachers and coaches. That being said, OLSH was not a bad school. However, there were some red flags throughout my four years there. It was perceived to me that the school involved a LOT of politics into what students received certain advantages as well as who were awarded notably and repetitively. So, to the equal opportunists of the world— this may not be the school for you. Secondly, you can expect a degree of sexist undertones. Of course, some of the dress coding was necessary and appropriate. However, the amount of times girls were dress coded when it was unnecessary, and in my opinion an abuse of power, was ridiculous. The dress coding was inconsistent and not enforced appropriately. One of the worst things to happen at my time at OLSH was taking away the homecoming dance. If you enjoy a classic high school tradition of homecoming, take OLSH off your list. Other than that, pretty good.
    OLSH had so many different activities to be a part of that it basically became like my second home. Having spent so much time there as a student and then returning for my younger siblings' events, I've seen how the school has evolved to include additional AP courses, stronger athletics, and award-winning arts programs. The faculty/staff members are extremely personable and always remember my family when they see us. Courses are challenging but it's not hard to find support. I firmly believe that I did well in college because of the preparation that I received from OLSH. Overall, the school has a really great atmosphere that you won't find anywhere else.
