    Our Lady of Peace School is awesome! WAY cheaper to send your kids here than Millcreek schools if you need extended care. OLP tuition and before and after school care if you are a parishioner=$426 Millcreek before and after school care per month= $460! You can apply for grants at OLP also...tuition can be reduced drastically if you qualify. Kids here at OLP learn a lot more about integrity and humanities too. Highly recommended from a parent who switched from Asbury.

    OLP is the BEST in private education! We have made lifelong friends through school events. The warmth of the OLP community never ceases to amaze me!! I know my children will succeed in high school and college because of the strong foundation OLP has built. We can't say enough good words about the faculty and how devoted they are to an enriching academic experience. If you don't believe me ask villa prep mercyhurst and McDowell where their top students come from. GO CRUSADERS!

    This school has pluses and minuses Some of the teachers are caring and push the kids just enough while others are pretty curt with both kids and parents. The school is not very modern in looks or technology. They do not have much in the way of special resources for kids that need extra help or kids that are gifted as I have both. They do not offer activities like home economics or wood working. As with any school some of the parents are friendly and some are not. There are issues with cliques and such small class sizes that there are problems with kids getting along. Enrollment has dropped severely over the past 10 years.

    Our son is thriving! He loves to learn. He loves to go to school. He has a small class with attentive caring teachers. The community atmosphere is rich with active friendly families. The faith life in the school is fantastic. There is a weekly school mass daily prayers and readings shared by the entire school as well as the individual classrooms.

    OLP is a great school. I am an alumni of the school and I send my children there. Our Lady of Peace teaches my children how to be strong both academically and spiritually
