OLL Outstanding School
Both my daughters graduated OLL . OLL provided a safe wonderful environment to learn and grow. The morals , manners and education help formed them into wonderful successful young ladies. They have a strong moral compass. The middle school was wonderful as they didn’t grow up too fast and weren’t exposed to some of the bad stuff that is present in the environment these days.

Only if you want the BEST for your child . . .
If you're looking for an environment where your child will thrive, look no further. Our Lady of the Lake School is, by far, the best choice in Essex County for your son or daughter to reach his/her full potential. The faculty and staff, as well as the community of families assembled there, are the most dedicated and caring you'll find; and with its rigorous academics, latest technology, and plethora of activities (sports and otherwise) for your child to benefit from, he/she will be set up for success and well prepared for high school! What's better than that? Take a look, you won't regret it.
