Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

The teachers seem well prepared for daily lessons, they inform us on our child's progress on a regular basis and have excellent classroom management.

I like that Cathedral Chapel has a strong parent presence. We not only feel welcome on campus, we are encouraged to participate in all aspects of our son's education. I appreciate that my son has learned lessons using current apps and websites as well as text books and flash cards. The school seems very in touch with tried and true, old school teaching paired with cutting edge, modern technology. Most importantly, the principal and staff emphasize respect, responsibility and faith which is lacking in public schools these days.

A school is a place away from home, somewhere your children can feel comfortable and safe, a place to develop, learn and grow with confidence. We all want the best for our children, finding the right school makes a huge difference. My husband and I are extremely happy with Cathedral Chapel School. Moving to LA we found that the education system is so different then where we came from. My husband and I wanted a school where our children can learn strong academically and advance quickly. We enjoy how the school involves every grade when it comes to Spelling Bees, Religion Bees, Geography Bees and there Science Fair, it was one of the most fun experience to have all grades involved in. The schools computer class is amazing, each student learns on Mac Computers. The Art room is so fun, you never know what piece of Art you child will create in there. Spanish class is incredable how fast they learn to read, write and speak a new language. The Science Lab, is fabulous, something I only remember seeing in High School. The Music program is fantastic, the children develop and learn so quickly through the art of music. When we found this school there was no way I would even look at another school. we are incredibly happy hear and looking forward to seeing our children develop with Cathedral Chapel School.

Our children are completing their second year at Chapel, following a great experience at a highly sought after LA charter school. Leaving a progressive charter school for a traditional Catholic school was a bit of an adjustment – it took the first few months to get used to the pace, and calling teachers “Mr.” and “Mrs.” but they caught on. They’ve made great friends and we, as parents, have gotten involved (there are lots of volunteer opportunities). Chapel is academically rigorous, so be prepared. Students receive top honors at the academic decathlon every year. Chapel’s system works well – graduates are accepted in the best schools in LA (Loyola, Harvard Westlake, Notre Dame, Immaculate Heart, etc.) and in the nation. This year, two of our 8th graders are moving to New York and Maryland to attend top high schools. It’s really nice to know that our students are so well-prepared. In additional to strong academics, our kids are having fun – Family Fun Night, Halloween, Jog-a-thon, Spirit Day, competitive sports, etc. -- and the music programs during the year are jaw-droppingly AMAZING. Families are super nice and get together outside of school for “unofficial” social events, which gives everyone a chance to bond. Two enthusiastic thumbs up for Cathedral Chapel!

Teacher effectiveness: Agree

Our children are learning a lot and consistently bring home excellent standardize test scores (well above grade level).


Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
My children are the in the after-school program and are usually done with homework by the time I pick them up (and often have time to play before I pick them up). Projects can, however, be very time-consuming, so plan ahead.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
Honesty and integrity are very important qualities that the school tries to reinforce. Students are recognized and praised when they are good citizens, and can receive "Saint of the Month" awards. Students also attend Mass every month are are taught religion.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
All teachers are qualified or credentialed. Many of them have been teaching for several years.




- a parent
My daughter has been enrolled in this school, and this community has been very welcoming. The teachers have an abundance of resources and are willing to help children improve. I look forward to working with CCS this year!

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
The principal as well as individual teachers discuss honesty, integrity, and fairness to all students. In addition, they are great role models for our children! The staff lives out these values!
