We made the switch to Lourdes in the Fall of 2018 as West, now 14, was beginning middle school and Addie, now 7, starting kindergarten. We live close by and had several neighborhood kids attend Lourdes, so with both kids starting new chapters it was the right time to make a move and with them six years apart, it was important they attend a K-8 school together for these few years. At first my husband who is not Catholic, was not interested, but upon touring and seeing the sticker that reads “we are an inclusive school” on the door as you enter, we knew we were in the right place. What we love most about Lourdes is the community of students, parents, teachers, staff and Parish coming together to support each other. It is truly a family we are proud to be a part of, especially at the events like The Bull Roast and Filipino Festival. Outside of school our kids love hanging with their great friends they’ve met at school. This year they are looking forward to hopefully getting back to more of the planned activities like sports, socials and 8th grade graduation. We are so glad we made the switch to Lourdes! Not only is the education excellent, which is a key factor in choosing a school, but the bonus is Our Lady of Lourdes has enriched our family in so many more ways than we could have imagined.
