Blessed. Looking back at my time at Our Lady of the Greenwood, I realize that I couldn’t have been blessed any more.
Great role models have been shared; lifelong friends have been made; and my faith has grown.
Because of OLG I have become a better person. Every day I am constantly reminded how great our God is. What’s better than that constant reminder?
All the teachers and staff are such a great influence to look up to. And to add to all of this goodness, every single student is amazing.
My experience couldn’t have been any better.

I have attended Our Lady of the Greenwood School for nine years and have benefitted from every moment.
From the first time I walked into this school I knew that it would be something that would set my life on course in the direction I needed to go to be successful. The teachers and staff have done their best to make that happen. The atmosphere truly sets it apart from others. The people here are all respectable figures. The students are all great friends, and I am sure that many of them will be friends who stick with me throughout my lifetime.
I have received an amazing education while becoming a better person. The teachers and students keep you being the best version of yourself. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the support and encouragement of the students and staff.

One of the many gifts that God has given me is the opportunity to attend a Catholic school.
Every morning I can walk into a school where the Catholic faith is welcomed and appreciated by everyone. The love of Jesus is expressed through everyone at Our Lady of the Greenwood School. I’m extremely lucky to be able to attend a school where I can openly express my faith and love for Jesus to everyone around me.
One of the best things my school has given me is the ability to learn more about Jesus and my faith every day. I can attend religion class and learn about Jesus’ legacy and how the church began. We also attend Mass every Wednesday.
I see the Catholic faith expressed throughout the school in many other ways. I can walk down the hall and see posters with Jesus and Bible verses on them and crosses on every doorway. Every classroom I walk into throughout the day depicts our faith as Catholics.
I am so blessed to be able to attend an amazing Catholic school. Jesus’ ministry and teachings are lived out through Catholic schools in one of the best ways possible. I thank God as much as I can for being able to attend a Catholic school.

Our Lady of the Greenwood has been a wonderful experience for me.
I couldn’t imagine spending my elementary and middle school years anywhere else. Everybody here is like a huge family. We support one another and learn together. I came to OLG in the third grade and instantly made friends. The people are so kind; I believe that I have made some lifelong friends. We will soon be going to high school together; I think that most of us will still be best friends.
The best part about my school is practicing my faith with all my friends. Every Wednesday the whole school goes to Mass, where my favorite thing to do is to distribute Holy Communion. Most of the eighth-graders recently became Eucharistic ministers. It feels good to give all of the students, teachers and parents the Eucharist.
I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
