think about this school

June 26, 2014
I grew up in a Catholic family. I was raised with Catholic values and traditions. I wanted to give those same things to my child, which included a school with the same. I made the worst mistake about that by sending my child here. The school states that it has values, yet my child was bullied during the year, and nothing was done. There was gossiping in the school yard, by the students which in turn was fueled by the parents who gossiped directly in front of the kids. The administration is consistently asking for donations, and they make those who cannot donate feel like outcasts. The school only cares about test scores, and not about the child as a whole. The teachers yell at the kids, call the kids out in the classroom and embarrass them. They care more about updating technology then having hot water, or even clean water running in the restrooms. The water fountains taste as if the water is dirty. I would not recommend this school to anyone. EVER!!!

This school is great if you are above grade level. They cater to one type of child...bright. They have high expectations, which is GREAT but what about those kids who need a little extra help. If your child is not doing well academically, they will suggest you look for tutoring elsewhere, which cost more $$. They are up to date on technology it seems, but yet some teachers still do not have web pages where a parent can go to look for projects and assignments. And do not let me get started on HOMEWORK!!! They give a lot! Don't they know that not all parents are wealthy and therefore some of us still have to work, make dinner, showers, extra curricular activities and try to spend some family time together. My child is doing about 6 hours of school a day plus another 3-4 hours of homework. But like I said, if your child is above grade level, and you have a nanny to do homework with your child, then you will like this school just fine.

Im a student. Ive been attending this school since kindergarten, and i am currently in the 7th grade. Overall, its a very good school, and the technology is very advanced. The expectations are really high though, and its really hard to get a 4.0

This school could really use a friendly staff. The front office greets you with rudeness and silence. Adults who are now in their 30's that were CCS students are shocked to know that the office staff is still there and have nothing nice to say about one individual. They say she was just as rude and mean back when they were in school. Parents are nickled and dimed for every little thing. Parents who put a lot of effort and time into the school are not appreciated and truly mistreated. Homework time is so overwhelming and at times ridiculous. The school is so far gone with technology that they fail to realize what this technology is doing to our kids. Some of the teachers yell to much at the kids and embarrass them in front of their peers. The class size is too big considering it is a private school and good money is being paid for these children.

This school is just horrible. They keep spending their money on new technology and it isn't helping my child at all! They yell at my kid for having an imagination, and tell him he is a slacker! ;( I decided to transfer him to St. Brenden's! At least their church is usable now!

After experiencing both public as well other private school educational systems, I truly believe that CCS is a RARE find in this day and age. The faculty and staff are constantly striving to improve the overall experience of every student. Our advancements in technology, including iPADs, a Mac lab, lcd projectors, interactive whiteboards & remote controls, as well as the recent addition of document cameras have transformed the way in which we are able to educate our students. We use a plethora of methods to teach and provide individualized attention to our students in ALL subjects. The curriculum is rigorous and has resulted in the success of our students in high school and beyond. We are now in the process of fundraising for a state of the art science lab and art room. With the careful and responsible planning of our principal we have been able to set goals and achieve them. Above all else, we are a family and a diverse community built on faith. It is truly a blessing to be a part of such a special place.

There's one teacher in after school that yells at kids and a classroom teacher that forces her smile after she says something mean and condescending. I'm saying that, hopefully the principal would correct them or hire somebody else. I'm giving the school five stars inspite of those teachers that are not kind and positive because over all the school is great: academics, safety and for the catholic education.

My son is the 11th member of my family to attend Cathedral Chapel. We keep coming back because of the family atmosphere, the diversity of the student body, the faculty and the high standards and academics that they keep improving upon. The school was recently accredited for 6 years, the longest possible term. We love CCS and so will you.

We have shopped and attended plenty of schools and the Cathedral Chapel is the best. It is a school with clear goals for kids and parents. Those goals are then made possible by a clear steps for getting there.. whether its good grades, community service, or sports. It is a school that asks the kids to approach life with a broad perspective meaning that grades count, service counts, family counts, etc. The school has been the proud winner of the Academic Decathalon for a number of years. This alone, in a school this small, is an exceptional claim.

Cathedral Chapel School is the BEST school that I have ever experienced in my long career as a teacher and an administrator. We have the BEST teachers, staff, students and families who strive for excellence and sincerely care for each other. The people who make up the school community at CCS pride themselves on their deep faith in God, their academic excellence and their service to the local community. The rich diversity of cultures at CCS provides all members with the opportunity to respect and value our differences as well as our unity as God's children. We are witnesses to the power of prayer and God acting in our lives on a daily basis. Cathedral Chapel is a unique family oriented Christian community that fosters the best in each person. We are proud to be carrying on the tradition of Catholic education at CCS and celebrating 80 years in the MIracle Mile of Los Angeles. We truly believe that the Catholic education we provide to our students is an advantage for life.

I am a student who is currently attending CCS. i think that CCS is a great school because they teach students with the latest technology. I also think that CCS has a great education. It allows students to be creative. CCS is like my second home.

I am very confident in this school. It has high academic and behavioral standards. The families and staff are warm and caring. I feel the tuitition is fair, especially compared to others of less caliber. My daughter is very proud and happy with her school also, and that is a very important start.

An oustanding academic institution where love, fairness, dedication and high teaching standards prevail.

Academically strong. Lots of homework, but I don't think it's overdone. Teachers and principal approachable and flexible -- they really listen. I wish the arts program was stronger. The school is characterized by both diversity and a strong sense of community among parents.

My daughter attends first grade and I am highly pleased with her progress. The teachers, principal and staff are all involved and assist with day to day functions. I only wish there was more diversity. Also, the school does ask that you fund raise. This can become quite pricey. However, the school offers a wide array of music , arts and crafts and a strong academic base. If you can afford the tuition plus the fundraising and pledges and are looking for a great school this school is the one to pick.

My son has attended CCS since kindergarten. He is now in the 8th grade and preparing for high school entrance exams. My son has consistently scored extremely high on the standardized tests (top 1% in the nation) and is on the Academic Decathlon team for the second year in a row. The Jr. High teachers are fantastic and spend extraordinary amounts of time with the kids. The school offers Spanish, hot lunches, music, computer classes (CCS has a great computer lab!), art, several different sports programs and our children participate in charitable and community-oriented programs throughout the year. We also have a science fair in which all children are required to participate. Winners are eligible to apply for competition in the L.A. County Science Fair. This school is a wonderful and welcoming community. The kids are respectful and happy. Rather than take my word for it, check it out for yourself!

I took my son to Catholic School with this hope that he becomes a good citizen. I found most teachers incapable of having thorough knowledge. The school personnel were unfriendly and rude. Unlike other Catholic School, this one is bizzare.

I found Cathedral Chapel School is the worst school in the universe. I am not joking. If you wish to kill your child spirit, creativity and ability to be independent, take him/her to this totally inadequate school. I have no respect for the principal and school workers.

In the next few years, Cathedral Chapel School will probably become one of the best Catholic elementary schools in Los Angeles. The new Principal, Miss Kipp, is highly motivated and has increased fundraising and parental involvement since her debut. There is now a Parent-Teacher association at the school. These devoted parents are spending amazing amounts of time to improve programs and events at the school. There are still many improvements that can be made, however the school has a lot to offer. My daughter's teachers are doing a great job. Of course my kindergartener has learned to read, count and do basic addition and subtraction, but she's also learning Spanish, music and computer skills from teachers devoted to these subjects. She's made good friends and looks forward to going to school everyday. For me, that says it all.

This is a well-run and academically strong parochial school with a socially diverse student body. Class size appears to average in the low thirties. The faculty is young, but very capable, in our experience. There is a high degree of parent involvement in the school (at least 20 hours of volunteer time per family is required to avoid financial penalty).

This school is the most bizarred school I've ever seen. Yes, it's a Catholic school and that means they're very strict - not a problem. The problem comes in when teachers and administrators bully kids (no kidding), teachers assign pointless, excessive amounts of homework to younger students, and they spend more time on religion than math. There are probably very good Catholic elementary schools out there, but this isn't one of them. This school killed my child's spirit and interest in learning--we left promptly.

The school provides discipline to students. However, homework is lengthy and teachers do not have extensive experience.
