Elementary School

Our Lady Queen of Heaven School elementary students grow together academically and spiritually in a nurturing and joyful environment. Students excel through hands-on learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Our goal is to help our young students recognize their God-given talents and realize their part of the community as a whole, building leaders from a very young age.  Each student, no matter how young, plays a vital role of our school and becomes an active part of the overall OLQH experience.

Our Caring and highly trained teachers and staff work with each student to help them reach their greatest potential. With a rigorous classroom curriculum, students are challenged and encouraged to excel throughout their journey in elementary school. Various programs including Accelerated Reader, Renaissance Learning and Success Maker help to enhance the curriculum and the child’s exposure to different forms of education and testing.
