I have two kids attending this school. The curriculum is challenging. The teachers are committed, qualified, and effective. The school is growing every year, yet the student to teacher ratio is still less than 10:1. The tuition is affordable and the campus is safe (moving to a larger location in K-Town). The school offers the IB Diploma Program (I think it is one of the two or three schools that has the IB program in Los Angeles). Very happy about the school.

I have two sons who are current students at the school. The teachers are very dedicated. They care about each individual students' progress. Average SAT scores are comparable to good public schools in Irvine, where I have sent my kids in the past. The school has IB program and prepares the students well for college. The school is very conservative in many ways, which in my opinion, makes a safer place for the students. I am very satisfied with the school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
