I'm a parent of a child at another catholic school. We were unfortunate in having to play a game at their premises and I was flabbergasted at how they exposed the kids to injury while sharing the tiny parking lot with sports. I cringed every time a car pulled in to the parking and the game had to stop. Furthermore the behavior of their team was shameful when they chose to make fun of one our players when she got hurt. I'm shocked that none of the parents watching went over to tell them to stop. This school hives other catholic schools a bad name.
My brother graduated from this school and now my two kids attend St Lucy School and St Lucy Preschool. The teachers are great, always very helpful . I really like the parent involvement and the small community. Also the tuition is pretty decent compared to other private schools around the area. I would definitely recommend this school if you are looking for good quality education
I went to this school many years ago and I had a great experience overall. Classes were small, felt like a family. There was light bullying, but I think that happens at every school. I think my years here more than prepared me for high school and college where I graduated with high honors in both. I also know others who went to this school and later on became well-established adults with good morals. The only downfall I'd say about this school is that there is a great percentage of Pacific Islanders/Filipinos (roughly 90%), which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but if you are looking for a school that is more diverse, then this school isn't exactly a good option. Also, the school is located in a not-so-great area of Long Beach. If you don't mind any of these, then this school is a good place to go.
This school is great when it comes to quality Education and Christian Values. Kids are polite and respectful and they care for each other. Everytime I dropped my sons I am confident that they they get the right education and good value severyday.
St. Lucy School just celebrated its 60th School Year. The alumni association put together an anniversary gala on April 17, 2010 and Councilwoman Uranga Tonja Reyes of the 7th District was in attendance to present St. Lucy's Principal Diane Pedroni with a Certificate of Appreciation. It was a wonderful night to honor such a great school.
When I drop my child off in the morining I know he is going to receive a quality education everyday.
I love this school coz' it's one of the best school from pre-k to 8th grade. My two graduated here, and I have one more kid still currently enrolled. My kids are very thankful that I have enrolled them here. It's an excellent school which prepares them to face another challenge in high school .
this is a great little school! great teachers and small classrooms, more quality time for your children,
I attended St. Lucy's, my cousins attended and now my son is in their pre-school. Family values and top notch teachers! I highly recommend this school.
This is a great Catholic school. The classes are small, the teachers really care about the students and the parent involvement is amazing. A lot of my family attended St. Lucy School. It's amazingly affordable compared to nearby schools like Holy Innocents, St. Philomena or St. Anthony's Elementary
My child attends St.Lucy's Catholic school in Long Beach, Ca. She is currently in the 5th grade. I want to let other parents know what a wonderful school it is. Starting from one of the best Pricipals Miss Pedroni I've ever seen, on to the teaching staff that is fantastic. Your child is guaranteed to receive an outstanding education like mine is currently having. The academics are some of the best being provided. The sports program is a lot of fun and encourages parent involvement. This is a small school and gives the feeling of being part of the family not just a school you drop your child off at. Parent's input are encouraged and appreciated. I can't say enough except to let you know that this is school is truly a diamond in the ruff. Kit Sheltman. a parent that cares.
