Our Lady Of Perpetual Help School Reviews
My child still has a 2 years at OLPH. I would love to pull her out but she has been with the same children since she was in kinder. It is very sad how OLPH has rapidly gone downhill. My child and classmates are allowed to be rude, disrespectful and abnoxios in all classes. I have spoken numerous times with not only all 3 teachers but the principal as well. I do not condone the behavior that is allowed at OLPH at home. I was quick to point out that I can't come sit with my child from 8 to 3 every day to make sure that my child and classmates behave. This should be enforced by the staff. Also, OPEN BOOK TESTS!!! That is crazy. The kids should be expected to study and know the subject. Almost all of the kids in 6th and 7th bombed the science final. How is that possible when it was an open book test? I can say that the only consistent and reliable employees of OLPH are the school secretary and our groundskeeper...they deserve an A+. Save your money and send your child elsewhere. Although, the kids attend Mass every week, etc. your childs Catholic foundation should come from the home not from a school. What a shame the Franciscan Sisters left OLPH.

School lacks a leader. NO, not all of the teachers are credentialed. No music. Students allowed to re-take tests to improve grades. Most all of the graduating students this year did get into honors classes or AP classes. We feel they are not prepared. Parents to yell at teachers in front of school and leader does nothing. Students are disrespectful, do not follow rules, and are out of control in many of the classrooms. Teachers not equipped to handle all the special needs students, and many teachers should have better classroom management. Over the last 4 years with a new leader, the school has consistently gotten worse. Don't spend your money here. Go to public school.
This is a great school not only does it offer an outstanding education but it offers a firm religious foundation. The curriculum is accelerated and it surpasses the california state standards. Every teacher is fully credentialed and many have additional master degrees. Both my kids thrive here and there is no other place where I would send them. We have been welcomed by all the parents and it feels like a true community. My kids have made great friends. Overall the best choice we've made. Love the school .
