Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
As I may have mentioned earlier this seems to be a topic at most schools. Serra is very upfront with the students and parents that this behavior will not be tolerated. They have speakers come in as an additional resource to parents and the boys and truly educate the boys about the behaviors.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
While we did not personally experience this program a good friend of mine did. She could not have been happier with her son's experience at Serra and subsequent college selection.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
From the President of the school down to the Janitorial staff. People care and it is obvious. Tour the school and see for yourself.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
These are the very reasons Serra addresses this in their mission statement. They walk the walk! Campus ministry is active and evident. The school does not tolerate bullying and there is a genuine respect for the diverse student body. The schools Counselling department is actively involved with every student and your son will be known there.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The teachers have hours set aside to help any student who may need assistance. We have always found that our son could reach out to any of his teachers and they would go the extra mile to make sure their students succeed.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
From our experience the boys are counseled to take a free period when they are in honors and AP classes. This gives them time to do a lot of their work at school. The teachers will help any student that seeks assistance.

Serra has offered a wonderful learning environment for my son. He loves the diversity of students at the school. He has been involved with sports, clubs, NHS, and the school newspaper. The honors and AP classes that he has taken were challenging and no doubt helped him get into USC. The counselors, teachers and administrative staff are second to none. There are plenty of ways for the parents to get involved through the Fathers Club, Mothers Auxiliary or the Moms Prayer Group. I would highly recommend this school. It's been a great four years! Thank you Serra for preparing our son so well for college.

Serra High School has been a great place for my son. He is thriving academically and in his extra curricular activities. He has made great friends and has had great experiences with teachers and counselors. It has been a great balance of working with teachers and fellow classmates when needed and also working independently if it suits his needs. Serra High School cares about my son as a student but more importantly as a person.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
There is no tolerance for bullying - ever.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
I have several friends whose sons are in the ARC program. They are thriving academically and Gayle Rosenberg does a wonderful job mentoring and encouraging students with learning disabilities.
