My child transferred from a local public school. Upon entering the school, I was told that it was not a perfect school and that they would never say all their students were perfect. What the principal did tell me is that they are always working together to make it a growth experience for everyone and always working to be better in all areas and that was what they would help my son be a part of. I was guaranteed that my child would be watched , cared for, and guided in the right direction. I was also told that his growth and well being would be attended to because each child is seen as a special gift from God. I am happy to share that I feel a great sense of comfort and trust at this school. My child has changed tremendously. He believes in himself I think because I see others believing in him. He goes to Church and knows he will have a future. This is the biggest difference I see between this school and the large public school he attended. I recommed this schoool to new parents. It has been a smart move for our family.

I am a proud parent of three students at Santa Isabel School. My children are in second, third, and eighth grades. They are very happy there and love going to school each day, well almost always! I am impressed by the education my children receive, the faith instruction which they recieve on a daily basis, and the fine quality of teachers found at Santa isabel. They work very hard and are willing to spend time with both the students and the parents. I could not ask for more. Each teacher is encouraged to develop his or her own style, creativity is a value among the teachers. Mrs. Silva, the principal. is an amazing woman. She puts her heart and soul into Santa Isabel. She is an excellent principal, and is an educational leader looking to the future of the school and the children. I am very happy we found Sta. Isabel.

this would be my sons 2nd yr @ this school. to be honest with you guys, there's no big difference between this school or a regular L.A.U.S.D school. class sizes are "smaller", dont count on it..define smaller, i would call it average in size. as far as students, just like in the whole world, there's all kinds. Some are nice, and some are somewhat little menaces. i hear some cursing @ times while i get my son. some kids are hugging and kissing after school while heading home. teachers seem nice most of the time, but i would not praise them either. i wonder if all these other reviews are legitimate reviews.Are these teachers reviewing their school? is an ok school but i would NOT give it 4 or 5 stars.overall is an ok school. but if it wasnt due to my job, i would put my son near our home

I am a new parent. I have two kids that attend Santa Isabel. They love the school and so do I. It is wonderful to see the dedication of everyone that works there. The family atmosphere is felt from the moment you arrive! Thank you to everyone for teaching great values to my kids and for teaching them that Christ is at the center of all that we do. Academically I have seen great improvement in my son! Being able to review their work on a weekly basis through the QEP folder is wonderful. The school also has a great music room and a computer lab! My kids love singing at the monthly Masses. I am so happy to be at Santa Isabel and I highly recommend it.

I am new to the school, but my son is not in kindegarten. He transfered here from another school. I am so sad that I did not find this school sooner. It is great for him. He is interested in school and challenges himself. He has a lot of friends and he is more interested in going to church. I am most happy for the teachers. They really know him and care about his learning. It was a great find for our family. I would reccommend it.

I am new to this school. My child is in kindegarten. He was told at other schools that he would not be ready for school. This school has two teachers in the classroom. A friend told me about this school. I checked out other schools and this is the place I felt most comfortable. Everyone was very welcoming and the principal gave me a tour of the school twice. I have only been here awhile but the things other people wrote are true so far. It was a good choice.

We had a great year at Santa Isabel last year. The principal, teachers, and staff really make it feel like a safe and loving place for our kids. We are experiencing a lot of changes, but changes that show growth. We are excited for the upcoming year and we are grateful that all the children know they are smart and a gift from God. It is a great place to be.

My daughter has been at this school for three years. She loves it and so do I. She comes home applying something new she learned everyday. She loves going to Church and knows it is part of her Sunday. This summer we have a lot of great changes and improvements. It is very hopeful at a time where some schools are closing. It won't happen at Santa Isabel. We have commited parents and teachers and a very dedicated and inspiring principal. It is a great community! We are looking forward to next year.

Throughout the years I have seen some great improvements in the school. Every year it gets better but last year has been the best!!! I have total confidence in our wonderful principal and outstanding teachers. They are a true team and they always keep us parents informed. School of Santa Isabel is a place where our children feel safe and are learning all that they will need to be successful adults with great values and a strong faith!

Santa Isabel School provided the foundation for my son s success today. Santa Isabel instilled strong Christian values, which he demonstrates in the service he provides to his community in the form of volunteerism. Santa Isabel also provided my son with a strong academic background, which resulted in being selected as valedictorian when he graduated from Santa Isabel in 2007. Today, my son is attending a wonderful high school, where he is succeeding academically. He is enrolled in honors classes and an AP class, and has been a member of the scholar honor roll since he entered this high school. My son is a member of the varsity drum line as well as in chorus, and his appreciation for music is due in part to his participation in the music program at Santa Isabel. My son would not have achieved such accomplishments had it not been for the instruction he received at Santa Isabel. My family and I have instilled values in my son, and have always supported him throughout his education; we raised the bar and he surpassed it. However, my son would not be at the level he is at had it not been for Santa Isabel School. Santa Isabel reinforced the values he learned at home, making him a compassionate, Christian young man. Furthermore, Santa Isabel helped my son surpass the bar by providing him with an excellent education. For this, my family and I are extremely grateful.

I love Santa Isabel School. More importantly, my kids love being there. They are taught the importance of learning and that it is a team effort. They are taught good values and they are safe. They are one of the only schools in the area that has a music program. It is awesome and so is the school!

My son is ready to graduate this year. It is a scary time, but I am confident he will succeed because of the great education he received at this school. He learned to be a critical thinker and to problem solve. He learned to put Christ at the center of all he does. These are life skills. I am so thankful to the teachers and principal for letting us know they are there and they care about the growth of each child. As a single mother, I especially value the family atmosphere at the School of Santa Isabel. I am happy to show my gratitude and belief in this school by encouraging others to come and become a part of the school family.

I am an alumi of this school. I also had the pleasure of teaching there. It is a place where I know I am always welcome and where the students, faculty, and families work together to produce intelligent young men and women of service. Parents can feel confident that with the values and education their children gained at this school, they will succeed and help make their communities better places.

I am a parent of two girls attending Santa Isabel. One of which is a honor student in the 6th grade and another that just started kinder. I am very happy with the quality of the education my girls are getting here. I could tell you that my 5 year old is starting to read. At Santa Isabel the parents are like family we all pretty much know each other and look out for all the children in the school.

As a child, I attended the School of Santa Isabel. It was there that I learned the value of education, not just for myself, but to serve our community. I learned to be the hope for the future because people believed in me, worked collaboratively with my parents, and gave me the gift of faith in myself and in our Lord. It is with great pride that I carry on these traditions as the first lay principal of Santa Isabel. I would not feel as compassionate about serving this great school if it did not give so much to me and my family. I wish to continue this tradition with all in our community and our numerous parents who commute here to inspire our children to believe they can all succeed and truly be a light to the world! Please come and visit with me for a personal tour.

This school needs lots of improvement, there is no caring for the students, no religious practice from the teachers or the staff, no customer service, and the food is disgusted. I don't recommend any child to attend this school. I hope somebody makes a difference for the the future and safety of the students.

This school has a small ratio of students to Teachers. K,1 grades have assistants which really helps the students especially in the first years of their education. As a parent I appreciate that my child is receiving the quality education that we all look for in a school. They really care about the students and they invite the parents to be a part of the childrens education at all levels of learning.
