I feel the academics are average. If your in a good school district (check scores and most important teacher student ratio) You will get exactly the kind of education you strive for. The classroom ratios at SAM are not competitive. If your child fits in the schools boxes as all the children are alike attitude then you will be ok. If your child is above average they do not have any gifted or gate programs. Only one class per grade so if you have any challenges your stuck. Also the school does not practice their values painted on their campus. Very disappointing old school catholic values as do as I say and not as I do. Just do your research before signing your money away.

St. Angela Merici School in Brea is considered as a tough school to get into. I have experienced it. The teachers are strict and follow the school rules & principles. I value the teachings very much and the principal, Ms. Windisch is a fair and conscientious person. There is a lot of parent involvement.

St. Angela Merici School is, simply put, the best school! The teachers and staff really care about the children and their growth both academically and emotionally. This school strives to educate the whole child, with an emphasis on Reverence, Respect & Responsibility. The children are well prepared for high school and life in general because the parents, students and staff all work together and put the children and their education first and foremost. Teachers and staff are constantly asking for feed-back for new ideas and improvement of school programs. I have been a parent at this school for 16 years, I have three children who have gone onto high school and two children currently enrolled. I can honestly say, that I know my husband and have made a great choice for education, and our children who have graduated all say they are glad they got attend this school!
