Cathedral Chapel Elementary School 5

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!

I appreciate Ms. Kipp's openness to new ideas. We have also had wonderful experiences with the teachers, including our 4-8th grade teachers, and teachers for art, music, PE and computer.

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

Amount of homework: Just right

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.

Students are held to high standards academically. If work is messy or disorganized, they may be asked to re-do it. Students are aware of their academic progress and are competitive yet supportive of others' accomplishments.

Develops respect: Agree

Students are taught to treat others as they would want to be treated. Teachers (if aware) will speak with students who are being disrespectful of teachers or other students. Students are asked to be inclusive.

Develops empathy: Agree

When our children have had issues involving other students, we have felt comfortable reaching out to their teachers and feel that our concerns have been heard. Students also have an opportunity to work on friendship issues with a counselor that supports the school.

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.

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

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!
