    "Our children attended one wonderful year at Point Dume Marine Science Elementary School under the superb leadership of the Principal of 2010. The teachers are considerate, intelligent, supportive and all around just great! At that time, there were aides in each class which was wonderful for my kids after attending a below standard school. I remember my son saying, "mom, I don't think I learned anything in third grade"! And that is why we chose Malibu. My kids thrived there! The parent involvement is extraordinary and appreciated! Unfortunately, my daughter became very ill from a rare disease and we had to move over the hill and have her in a warm/dry environment. The schools here are great too! Some advice to the parents investigating schools...look around, ask around and make sure where you move is right for your children!"

    "PDMSS - i was born and raised in New England, very critical of CA schools. Point Dume has exceeded all expectations! Three children at PDMSS - both regular ciriculum and special needs. Great private schools nearby but not needed. PDMSS has High quality teachers, High intensity administration, Individualized attention on so many fronts. Examples- one of my children struggling with reading- administration has consistently reached out in terms of additional aid (both after school and during summer...for free) - his improvement has been marked. Another child special needs- highest quality teachers, therapists, superb teacher/student ratio - progress made will allow him to matriculate into "normal" Kindergarten this autumn. Third child top decile- the school has yet to fail to challenge. Diverse and very well educated parent base, with intense participation. My only criticism is i wish there was greater exposure to art & music during school hours. However, this could be rectified if the Santa Monica-Malibu school board would allow 100% of money given to PDMSS to be used at PDMSS...the commitment is there!"

    "It does not get any better than this. We have been there 10 years now, with my oldest in the 9th grade at MHS. The teachers and staff have become like family. The principal, well I can't say enough about. She knows every child's name and personality, as well as the parents. Sad to be leaving the end of this year!"
