This school is absolutely amazing I'm which I am proud to say that I am grateful that I have been enrolled in this school. I love how the teachers are caring for the grades and the students. The classes are taughat at all levels depending on how well you get the subject. Honestly, I recommend this school as an 8th grader who is about to graduate :)

I enrolled my son here the second quarter of the school year because he and his other little freinds were constantly being bullied around at his other school. I decided to pull him out and enrolled him here since they had available openings for his grade. I must say I was a nerve wreck since my son is very shy and hard to adapt. However, I was very impressed his first day of class because he was talking and interacting with his classmates the FIRST DAY!! I couldn't have been happier. He adapted very quickly to his new school. The schools grades go from Pre-K to 8th gr. The teachers are great and very well preapared as well as the principal whom is amazing, aa great support and always thinking of the better for all her students. The students are very well mannered and oh so friendly! Parents involvement is a must. Which is a great thing. Classes are great in size and as extra curricular activities they offer karate (which my son loves) every Wednesday. I'm above happy to have my son here and hope he continues his education here til the end.

My son is in his second year of pre-school at Immaculate Conception. The individualized instruction and attention that he receives from the teachers is impressive. They are loving, caring and nurturing- and my son can be a challenge. I believe in the mission of the school and the character education they provide my son is like no other. I would highly recommended this school to any parent.

The school has a faculty like no other! The teachers are well prepared to education students for the demands of the 21st century. They go beyond the "extra mile" to ensure that the students have an opportunity to be successful. Every child is known by name by the principal and most of the faculty/staff. The students are friendly and well-mannered!

I actually go to school here and am proud to say this is the best school ever!! The Faculty is nice and wonderful, the students are educated, and simply just marvelous to come to this school, even though i will be sad to leave in 2014, but I know since my principal doesn't favor a certain student, but love and care for all of us, she will let me come back and visit. This school has really strong leadership and will make your child healthy, strong, well-mannered, and get better grades you ever thought possible. I can tell you many kids who went to this school or are coming, didnt know any english, but now they speak it perfectly. I really do hope you pick this school because its like your in a dream, especially because its completely affordable. I can tell you now that I am really satisfied and in the near future will be proud to say I was an Alumni from Immaculate Conception School Los Angeles. Sorry this is kinda long, even though i could go on forever, i must stop, but i promise u that u wont be sorry. Well have a delightful, yet wonderful day.

Immaculate Conception is Great located in Downtown Los Angeles. It's view of Downtown LA is beautiful. I would Highly recommend this school to everyone that is new to this community. This school has been for 90 years. The kids have daily prayers and attend mass every Thursday. Mrs. Murphy is the Principal and is great person. In 2005 my daughter was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor. Her Principal and her Teachers then would visit her. Everyone at the school would pray for her and welcomed her back into school. I honestly can tell you this school has made a Huge difference in her recovery. I enrolled my daughter her in 2001 because then all school in Pico Union area where overcrowded and not safe. At Immaculate Conception you don't have to worry everybody is like a big family and it's safe their is never any fights or writing on the wall. The school curriculm is great and so are the Teachers. I highly recommend it for everyone who is moving to Downtown LA is Great . They even offer After school Day care.Please come visit. This school was visited and By John Pope II and Ronald Reagan.

Great school with wonderful teachers. My son was a student for three years and loved it. The academic curriculum is great. My family and I have relocated to a different state where my son is now at the top of his class. Thanks Immaculate.

The school's academic curriculum is great. My daughter that will be entering the 6th grade is reading at a 8th & 9th grade level. The teaches and the director are the best, because they really care about the kids. They encourge them to live up to their potential.

In a whole, many friends and family members are alumni from this school and I heard nothing but greatness from this school.The parent involvement is great. My child is his doing great academically, yet I do not feel that this school has provided enough enrichment programs. There are a very limited amount of extra curricular activities. And absolutley no educational field trip. Which I have been frabergasted with. My child will not continue their education at immaculate conception school.
