there was teacher Sinclaire and Belinger who humiliate and disgrace student in the class, putting the student in the hot spot ,giving her time out front of her peers,shaming her, to this sensitive teenage adolescent stage student who is looking for her identity from her surrounding in this development stage. And ignorant counselor Velorie who think this is nothing and speak nonsenely and vice principal, nun who believe these are good teachers and staffs who side with them ,speak up for them. They believe who slander about other. This school was truly a messy. I took my daughter out. I do not recommend this school to anyone. They are same as none believer or worse. They need to pray to St. Lucy to help open their spiritual eyes.

The teachers and staff are phenomenal at their job and are extremely helpful. Unfortunately, there are so many rude and catty girls that it makes it almost impossible for my daughter to go to school with an optimistic attitude. I know my daughter would have loved the school and would have wanted to stay if not for the cliques and drama that comes with attending this school. It was heart breaking to see my daughter not only be bullied at school but also on social media when she came home. I've now moved to Glendora High School and she has a better attitude and it's much happier.

The best decision I have ever made, was to attend St. Lucy's. I came from a public school, and was not very excited to transition into an all-girls, uniform wearing environment. The teachers lecture phenomenally, and the courses this school offers are challenging yet rewarding at the same time. The AP Exam pass rates are almost 100% (The majority being 4's or 5's) Being a Protestant, I expected to be an outcast in the Catholic environment, but teachers, administration and fellow classmates were all very supportive of my beliefs and never attempted to convert or change the way I think. As far as athletics, all 9 of our teams, are league champions, Volleyball in particular is ranked 32nd best in the nation. At this school, you will make lasting friendships. Teachers care for the knowledge you acquire, your well-being, and are always available to help. The counselors at our school are the best resources if you have problems of any kind. The tri-school community is very welcoming and well integrated. The Class of 2012 has been accepted into all 9 UC schools, 22 Cal State Univ's 31 private Cali 4 year schools, 2 military academies, 85 out of state colleges (All 9 Ivy League)

I have two daughters. One graduated from St. Lucy's and is in college. The other is a junior at St. Lucy's. What a great school! My girls are doing very well and I know the teachers, curriculum and environment of St.. Lucy's has something to do with it! It is well worth the time and money.

I have read a few negative reviews, don't let that discourage you. My daughter was challenged here academically and it was a constant with her I don't blame the school it was her nature. It prepared her for college she had no kind of adjustment for college she was able to transition easily and is getting A's and a few B's. She loved it there, and made life long friends. Two years after graduating she still feels great about her time spent there. Her teachers and staff were amazing! There was a time when she was feeling a little down and they immediately picked up on it and spoke with me about it. If you are looking for tradition and lifelong memories for your daughter this is it. My younger daughter can't wait to come here.

To be honest, I did not want to attend St. Lucy's. Why? It's an all girls school. Nevertheless, after spending the past 4 years of my life here, I can genuinely say that I am blessed and happy to be here. It is interesting to see the other reviews but, St. Lucy's integrates faith into my life more that I would have ever thought. They also so not discriminate between public and private school students. It is the hard work, respect, and attention you need to put forth into the curriculum that makes you "favored"- but that is reality and St. Lucy's doesn't create a superficial high school bubble; it teaches you what reality is- trials and tribulations in all. All in all, St. Lucy's has provided me an intellectual vitality I hope to carry on in college in and in the work force. I am ready the change the world!

My daughter is now a Junior and she has excelled in all aspects of life during the last two years. She has agnostic beliefs and this has not been treated as a negative. On the contrary, she is learning about humanity, ethics, history of religions, and has broadened her view on spirituality. The school provides a safe environment for the girls, creates wonderful commaradery and empowers them to succeed in life and focus on a future. It also has a fabulous sports program. Can't say enough about the school!!!!!!!

Very weak in teaching christianity. Teachers are not credentialed. Gives out extra homework to justify the cost.

St. Lucy's has challenged my daughters in every area of a young woman's life. The campus is secure. The girls bond as women as they can share openly in class on topics that matter to women. The teachers hold them to a high academic standard, while teaching them to value themselves. The counselors help with college as well as life-issues. I have one daughter who is challenged to earn B's and one who works for A's. SL girls help each other solve problems. My daughters have said they are more themselves in class and in front of the class since the boys are not there. They meet up at games, the mall, prom etc. The athletic and art program have challenged my girls to work at a superior level. They are more than ready for life and college. The principals are excellent leaders for the girls.

This school provides the best level of academics and teaches these young ladies incredible life lessons. While providing students with high levels of college preparatory coursework, it also prepares them for the success that they will undoubtedly encounter. My daughter will be graduating this May, 2010 and we are all pleased with the high school experience and education that she received from St. Lucy's. In fact, she has been accepted to all of the colleges to which she has applied and we are very proud of her and grateful for the support that she received from St. Lucy's. Please consider this school for your daughter! She deserves it!

I am currently a senior at St. Lucy s. When I entered as a freshman, I was unaccustomed to the rigorous academic schedule. However, I worked with my parents and teachers to develop better time management and study skills, preparing me for a college education. Being in an all-girls climate has also been beneficial to me, as I am more able to focus on my academics. Though the academics at SL are demanding, I have still been able to participate in sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities. I don t feel like going to an all-girls school has held me back from meeting boys or having a social life. If you are considering sending your daughter to St. Lucy s, you should research further into the school- SL has unique traditions and characteristics that will not only prepare her to pursue a college degree, but will also enable her to make deep and lasting friendships.

My daughter is a freshman and has made so many new friends in such a short time. She loves going to school. It was the best decision we made. It's not an easy school and she has homework every night including weekends but it is worth it. She still finds time to do sports and afterschool activities.

My daughter graduated in 2007 and has been at one of the highest academic colleges in the nation. She is doing very well there because of the education she got at SL. I have 2 boys that went to a public school and they did not get the same caliber education. Because of the all-girl population, she has made deep friendships that she will sustain as an adult. If you have a highly motivated teen, this is the place for her!

I have made many friends over the past three years at school there, but I have seriously talked with my parents about leaving to go to public school. I came from public elementary and Junior High with a solid 4.00, along with many other public girls. Each of us have had a major decrease in our GPA's since we entered. Surprisingly though, my cousin and all her friends from private elementary schools are staying the same. The school favors private school kids over public. Just a warning.

Today I graduated from St. Lucy's. I'll admit, I did not want to go there at all. I tried everything to get out of it, but my parents were set on me going there. Now, 4 years later I am so happy they did. It was very challenging academically, but I learned a lot. I also learned much more than just academics. I think it is an amazing school filled with amazing and loving students, teachers, and staff.

Awsome school with teachers who educate the students with above par academic standards. The school has wonderful resourses to prepare your child for their formal education. The administration has a very savy business sence and you know your money is being reinvested into the scool for the current and future students. I cannot say enough about this school. I am happy not to put my child in public schools that are not being tested and rated with the rest of the nation schools.

As a parent of a new student, my daughter and I have found the school to be great. Great teachers who seem to care, and most girls seem to be very polite and friendly. My daughter comes home telling me how much see likes the school. lots of homework, but not overwhelming. I think we made the right choice.

At St. Lucy's you are able to make really great friends. The campus is beautiful and secluded. It's like going to school in a protected little bubble. The teachers are mostly good, some of them need to just leave. Some teachers have a legacy at the school and have been there for many many years yet are quite horrible teachers, luckily they usually teach useless classes like religion or drama for sophmores. Overall I loved St. Lucy's very much and wouldn't have choosen to go to any other highschool.

Having graduating from the public high school in the same town as St. Lucy's I know my daughter's are getting a better education. The traditions are wonderful. The school is safe and located within a beautiful setting. The softball program is fun and any personnel that I have come in contact with has been great.

St. Lucy's is the best school a girl could go to. You get the best friendships here and learn so much in and out of the classrooms. The teachers are the best and the academics are suited well to prepare you for college. The uniforms and all girls also helps the learn enviorment greatly!

The school is beautiful! Safe enviornment. Sciences and computers are not offered to freshmans. If your daughter is focused in academics and participates in sports you'll like it. Otherwise there isn't much offered for the average. I think they start too late in the morning & have too many half days during the year.

We chose St Lucy's over public school because of the caring teachers and staff. I like the fact that the students are held accountable for their actions. I have been and aide at the public high school and the kids seemed to be in charge there. Our family made the best choice for our family and the swim coach is the best there is! Thanks Scott for caring about your team!

As a former student, I can tell you that st.lucy's has an excellent academic system. If you really want your daughter to be prepared for college, this is the place to go. However, there do tend to be a lot of cliques throughout the school.

Coming from an all girls high school myself I could not have picked a better college prep school for my two daughters. They definitely prepare these young women for Universities versus Junior College only.

SL is a wonderful place to send your daughter. The education process is exceptional. The girls are encouraged to excel and are not inhibited by the 'boy' factor. Extracurricular activities are offered but somewhat limited. My daughter was an average student at SL but was accepted to every university she applied to!

As a former student, having graduated in 1999, I have to say that this school provided me with the foundation I needed to succeed post-graduation. Having been surrounded by the best teachers and administrators, I was about to develop and grow without the added pressures arising from societal pressures. My sister is graduating this year and I could not be happier with the young woman she has turned out to be. With a 99% majority attending college/university, this speaks of the amount of dedication and support the school gives each and every student that walks the halls. It's the best investment a parent could give their daughter, and I for one appreciate it to the fullest extent.

I have a daughter who graduated from this school five years ago. St. Lucy's made all the difference in her personal and educational development. I am so grateful that she had the opportunity to attend this school. The school is excellent, with caring teachers, staff and administration. One of the best schools in California!
