At OMPH School, we strive for academic excellence by establishing high standards and maintaining a skilled teaching staff. Our children are encouraged to do challenging work and rise to meet that expectation. Early in the education process, our teachers emphasize good intellectual habits such as clarity, accuracy, thoroughness, and organization, while fostering creativity and a love of beauty through the fine arts.
We encourage our children to follow our mantra of Reverence, Respect, and Responsibility: reverence for God, respect for others, and responsibility for self.
