    "We had many unfortunate issues at this school. I do think what shocked us as parents the most were the poor choices when it comes to admitting new families to a "christian community"... It's sadly more about the financially background of the new families - not about their values and social manners. There is a little amount of love and help for your child when you do not belong the 1% . This school changed so much to the worse in our eyes since Mr.Wong ( director of admission) left Calvary-who was truly a beautiful soul with real and honest interest in your child's needs and well being. The two stars are for the beautiful school setting and some outstanding teacher at Calvary like Ms Cooper ( art teacher )"

    "Calvary Christian is such a special place. Our son attended the preschool before we had to move away from Los Angeles, and his experience was top-notch. My husband and I were so impressed with all the activities he participated in each week - from science projects to cooking to gardening to petting real live reptiles! We could not have hoped to find a better school for our son. The staff, the teachers, the parents, and the head of school were always so welcoming and warm and genuinely wanted each student to succeed. They really took the time to know each student and always made our son feel loved and cared for. This school will always hold a special place in our hearts. Seeing our son come home happy every day, and knowing he wasn't just learning academic basics, but also learning how to be a kind and compassionate young person - it was truly such a gift!"

    "Our son attended Calvary Christian for one year of preschool, this past school year. Had my job not moved us across the country, we would have been with Calvary for many more. To say we were impressed would be a huge understatement. We and most importantly, our son, loved every second we were there. The faculty showed tremendous caring and patience with every child. As a parent of two young children, I marveled at that alone. Each day had creative lesson plans, educational play activities, and just the right level of oversight for preschool. Both faculty and administration worked hard to get and keep parents engaged with the community. The Dads and Donuts day in particular is something I will cherish forever. As a parent, you want your children to be cared for as much as you do yourself. Calvary definitely did that for our son. Every single time I was on campus, teachers I had never met and even the head of the school would address my son by name and know about him. My wife and I hurt at the thought of not being there at the start of this school year. I could not recommend Calvary more to a parent looking for a safe, nurturing environment, to start their child's education."

    "After pulling our son out of a very expensive westside 'progressive' school, I didn't know how he'd cope at a more traditional environment. Well thank goodness we settled on Calvary!! Wonderful school all around. My son is learning so much more than he was at his previous school. Sadly when he entered calvary he was almost an entire grade behind due to the 'project based learning' he was doing. Had I known that teaching style was so bad I'd've saved us the money & trouble! Needless to say the amazing education, morals and manners make us very proud to be a part of this community."

    "This school has quickly become one of the best schools in the Palisades. The new principal has brought with him a new energy. The staff genuinely cares about the students and each other. The parents continue to impress us with their warmth and selfless involvement with their children, the school and the Calvary community as a whole. Lastly, Calvary has recently been sending children on to the best schools. It seems that ex-missions has become a real focus. The school is perfect!"
