Alumni: Our Rich History and Proud Past
Our Lady's School, Our Lady of Angels and Our Lady of Guadalupe
Our Lady's School has been dedicated to the spiritual and academic
development of children for nearly 100 years. Two separate Catholic schools merged
in 1973 to become what we now call Our Lady's School. Our Lady
of Angel's School and Our Lady of Guadalupe School
each have a rich history of academic excellence and achievement in their respective
communities. Today, they work together to form a pre-school through eighth-grade
education system that prepares children to meet the challenges of life.
Our Lady of Angel's was built under the leadership of the Sisters
of St. Joseph of Carondelet. The school was erected in 1912 to serve the Sherman
Heights and Golden Hills communities. Our current site was later built in 1922 to
serve first through eighth grade students.
In 1945, the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia established Our Lady of
to meet the growing demand for quality Catholic education in the Logan Heights community.
A combination of civil unrest and rezoning laws led to a dramatic decrease in enrollment
in 1970. In the face of financial difficulties and possible closure, the two schools
merged in 1973.
Today, Our Lady's School stands as the oldest Catholic elementary
school in San Diego County. The South Campus, at Our Lady of Guadalupe parish, accommodates
kindergarten through third grade. The North Campus, at Our Lady of Angels parish,
accommodates our pre-school and grades fourth through eighth.
In an effort to nourish both the academic and spiritual needs of our students,
Our Lady's School has sought the guidance of the Jesuit Order through
the supporting parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe. We strive to evoke St. Ignatius
of Loyola's standards of education by promoting justice, love, service and spirituality
in all that we teach and do.
