This school gives a good quality Catholic education for the money! Teachers and New principal really care about their students. I agree they can increase their enrollment if they fix the outside of the school. Overall, good school.

I was very happy and loved Mrs. Angie Gonzales 5th grade teacher .She really motivated our kids.However the office staff and business office need to be more professional and nicer to paying parents.Concerns and issues should be dealt with promptly and efficiently

if you are looking for a good all day preschool program in the sylmar area you should check out st. didacus preschool with mrs. beaulieu. the children learn kinder and some 1st grade work in a loving environment.the preschool is a separte program from the elementary school.

Both my children attended this school, however, as soon as my oldest finished with junior high. I removed my youngest son and placed him in public school. All they do is ask for money and if you are an involved parent your child is a star.

This schoolis such a disappointment...I sent my kids her becuase I thought the teahcers would be above the public scholl sector I was so wrong. The office staff is rude and aggressive they even seem to rule the Principal at times. They are conmstntly asking for money and their discipline in the class is unbelievable. They do not teach it and it is not consistent or fair.

The school slowly has become a great disappointment. The school has outstanding elementary teachers. Unfortunately, I can not say the same for the Junior High level. There are a few that are great. Thank you to the Science teacher, my child has learned and has enjoyed the way you teach. I find that some of the teachers do not have total control in the classroom. I do not hold the teachers solely responsible, the parents need to show these children discipline. Some children can not learn or focus in a classroom with disruptive behavior. There must be more structure.

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.
