    "This school is struggling. Billboards are up around town to drum up business. This school has a bad rep. They refuse to acknowledge or admit there are problems. They have tried to blame it on the economy. All have degrees? Degrees in what? They will not even release this info---degrees, credentials, test scores. Important question: how many have valid CA credentials? Most of the staff has turned over in the last ten years. It is unlikely these teachers have taught two generations from the same family. This school is in an old low income area that the city has tried to revitalize. Sounds like someone is exaggerating things. This school needs to step it up. With homeschooling and charter schools, people are not wanting to spend the money for private schools where the teaching is just average. Parents have to put in a lot of time teaching and helping their kids. The benefits are not equal to the costs."

    "This school is absolutely amazing! Teachers all have their degrees and truly care for each student. My husband went to school here many years ago and now we send our kids here. It feels comforting and safe knowing that many of the faculty that taught him are now teaching our children. The school is located next to a police station and fire station and as working parents this gives us a sense of safety for our children. Their academics are top notch and there are so many extra curricular activities for the kids to be involved in such as sports, choir, handbells, band, student council, cheerleading, mathletes, decathalon, science olympiad, and speech team just to name a few. There are many traditional fun activities our kids look forward to every year such as a Halloween carnival, Christmas program, class holiday parties, Field Day, K-5 playdays, jr high dances, and Catholic Schools Week just to name a few. It truly feels like a family and am so happy to send our kids to this school!"

    "Beware of spin--in a review, website, or brochure. A good thing: kids learn how to be students. Rigor & structure in classrooms make for good students. There's a standard & excuses aren't tolerated. I don't necessarily agree with how they achieve this--lots of homework, tests, & extreme grading. Concerned about some things. Yes, one year they got top scores in deanery, but..not done consistently year after year. Yes, top third of 8th graders get into honor classes at h.s., but..bottom third often MUST take summer school to get into the h.s. Yes, one teacher has an MA, but..most don't & only a few have credentials. Yes, school does well in academic competitions. Teams are led by the same teacher--one of the few who knows how to teach; top few kids of each class are on the teams year after year--not representative of entire student body. Yes, they do well in sports (not as well as they used to), but..this school is one of the biggest out of 8 in league with about 108 kids in jr. high. Some schools don't have that many in K-8. There have been times when like only 3 other schools will play a particular sport so they end up best out of four?!!! Not really proving much! Beware of spin!"

    "Not worth your hard earned dollars, esp. since tuition has nearly doubled in the last ten years and a specific donation to the church is now required to get a better rate. Principal lacks ability and leadership skills to run this school. With the exception of a couple of teachers, most are not very good. They don't really know how to TEACH; they can read the text and give worksheets and tests. Only school that doesn't teach sightwords. In K-5, kids don't really learn comprehension and critical thinking skills. Writing is not taught very well. Then, they get to the middle school and they are expected to know it all. They are reamed and their self-esteems take a dive because of unrealistic expectations. They blame the kids--not trying or studying hard enough. It is very frustrating to pay so much money to not have your child learn. Favoritism is a big problem here; people play upon it, making sure to kiss up to the powers that be. Bullying is a problem, as many have mentioned. They do nothing about it. My child was being physically bullied and we were told to just ignore it. How does a child ignore being pinched, hit, and kicked? We regret getting involved with this school."

    "Classroom size is comparable to that of a public school in the Antelope Valley. This leaves the teachers with only a minimal amount of time to scatter their attention (hopefully to your child). With that said, they are strict and tedious when it comes to homework, which in all fairness is what some children need, but for those considering this school, keep that fact in mind. For my child who has always been a straight A+ student since kindergarten, it did not leave her much time to enjoy being a child and she was often under stress in order to be at the top of her class. (SHS parents if you read this- you know it s true, just admit to yourself even if a single word of it is never ever uttered out loud to another human ear). For this reason, and a few minor others, I repeat minor, I withdrew (leaving behind registration fees, paying additional service hours because they were not fulfilled) her midyear and ended up paying additional fees (registration, tuition, uniforms, lunches, service hours and you name it) towards another school which was also private."
