"We were very fortunate to have been able to send our four children to Our Lady of Fatima. We honestly stumbled on the school when our first born was in pre-school and from her start in kindergarten on, it became a second home to all six of us. Fatima was their academic and spiritual life plus our social life. It was a place of discovery, friendship and fun. We were blessed that our children could practice their faith in their daily school routine, while receiving a quality education. They learned intangibles like: service, confidence in public speaking, leadership, sportsmanship and what being an extended family means. The greatest thing about a grammar school experience is that friendships from pre-K 3 to grade 8 are possible and encouraged. Big kids take care of little kids and little kids keep things real. I know my children and our entire family will forever be bonded with OLF – we have a special shared Christian experience and lifelong friends."

“… you must know that I have nothing but praise for the school and its staff. And my appreciation has only grown in the last week (which I couldn't have thought possible). We have moved to a school that is considered the "best elementary school" in AZ--with a massive focus on academics. So much, that they teach an entire grade up--which was incredibly intimidating as a parent. I know this is just the first week here in our new school, but I have already received huge compliments on my children's ability to handle the new curriculum. Also, the children have been praised for their manners and kind nature. While I would like to take the credit for this as a parent, the reality is that they spent 6 hours a day with your staff. These teachers formed them into the students they are---and I hope you realize this. My son was praised for his ability to lead in their STEM classes this week--and science was not his strongest subject, and for me to hear this makes me so proud and so happy that he was prepared by the best in CT.”
“Best decision we ever made! Our daughter is happy smiling! Her grades are excellent! Everyone is nice and welcoming! I feel like a family now!”
“Our Lady of Fatima School is a wonderful place. The teachers are so caring and there is a real sense of community and family. The kindergarten graduation is the cutest thing you will ever experience!”

“Perfect academic and community environment for my daughter to thrive. Couldn't have picked a more perfect school to nurture her love of learning, service to others and family, respect and dedication. Small classes ensure 1:1 attention and strong bonds formed between all students. Faculty are hardworking, fun, smart and love their jobs. Older students take younger ones under their wing and the community feels like family.”
“Best decision we ever made. Not only is the school academically strong but they provide such a fun and nurturing environment for the kids. It really feels like a community.”
“A nurturing environment for children through 8th grade.”
“Wonderful education, great teachers, and awesome community.”
“At OLF, we are surrounded by parents with similar values who are truly invested in their children's education. The teachers are fantastic, and are able to give each child individual attention due to the small class sizes. It is a school where kindness and integrity are valued and encouraged as highly as academic excellence. It is great knowing that the values we work to instill in our children at home are being reinforced at school.”
“Before we relocated to Charlotte, NC my daughter Melanie attended OLF in Wilton, CT. Leaving CT was a difficult decision, but leaving the OLF community was even harder. Melanie had a wonderful experience in Kindergarten with Mrs. Fiorentini! The school has a great balance of academics, individual achievement, and solid catholic values. I would highly recommend OLF to any family looking for quality education in a nurturing environment.”

“Our Lady of Fatima is a sweet and wonderful school made up of amazing teachers and kind, respectful students. My son had an incredible experience at OLF where there is a fantastic blend of academics and religion. When we moved, one of the hardest things was seeing him cry knowing it was his last day at a school he loved so much.”
My family will forever be grateful to Our Lady of Fatima for the priceless education that my children received. While academically speaking the education was extremely competitive with other schools in the area in math, reading, & science skills, OLF taught our kids the most valuable and priceless of lessons: those of faith, respect, and compassion. What they learn at OLF is gradual, their day seemingly no different than other kids from other schools, but as a parent, you see it in the little things: from them being excited about a story discussed in religion class that day, to discovering they know the entire Star Spangled Banner at a sports game, to them asking if they could donate half of their birthday money to charity. All it takes is a grain of sand.... OLF is just that.
