I've been a parent to Epiphany for 7 years now, Over the years Epiphany had struggled keeping enrollment do to the principal in the past. That isn't the case anymore Epiphany has bounced back. With the dedication our current principal has put forth and her staff to make Epiphany what it once was , when she had attended school here. The principal Mrs Negrete and her staff are committed to the students and their education. Regardless of what you heard about Epiphany, this school offers a great staff, a Catholic. education, and focuses on one common goal. Our children future. Of you value your child's education this school is for them. The relationship between parents and staff is awesome!! The classes are small and the students are great!! Epiphany does require a monthly tuition fee. Which is reasonable and they offer assistant if needed. Don't put a price on your child's future. The surrounding schools are public, and with that comes many risks.. That is something I never had to worry about here at this school. They offer choir, basketball, volleyball, chess club, daycare, and there is also a preschool.

This school is excellent. My daughter started out in the preschool and has excelled in all areas. The preschool director is so involved with all of the students and her staff goes above and beyond. The principal is also very involved with the kids and parents and is readily available to speak to parents in person, via phone, text or email. In addition to academics they have a lot of activities for families and stress values and morals. It is worth every penny to pay for my child's education. My son will start preschool here this year and I am looking forward to another successful school year as my daughter enters kindergarten and he goes into preschool.

I transferred my child to Epiphany from a public school, and right away saw the diffrence in commitment Epiphany has for their students. Of course it was a bit overwhelming because as a parent you are ecpected to be very involved and provide so much more than a public school would request but it is well worth it and I would not go back on my decision of putting my child at Epiphany. I am very confident we will have one of the most succesful school years of many to come.

My children transferred to Epiphany from another Catholic grammar school in Montebello and I have to say it was the best decision my husband and I could have made. The principal at Epiphany truly cares about the school and her students. Thanks to Epiphany for making a BIG difference in the life of my son.

My daughter has been a student at Epiphany since she was in Kinder she is now in the 5th grade. Her father and I both attended Epiphany as children we are very pleased with the way the school has been able to keep up with modern times, but has not in any way changed its views on respect, quality of education, family and catholic values. I feel very comfortable sending my daughter to school everyday knowing that she is well taken care of in every aspect from the way she is taught in the classroom to the way she is taken care of during lunch time and she has everything she needs when she goes to the school office. Everyone one of the staff from principals, teachers and all other staff members there is one priority our children and for that I can't thank them enough..

I have been at Epiphany since Kindergarden and my oldest is an 8th Grader now. She will be graduating, but thank goodness I still have my 5th grader soon to be in the 6th grade. Epiphany is AWESOME. Great Teachers and the parents are very friendly. This school is very family orientated. I am very happy with Epiphany and wouldn't think of any other school to recommend if you would like for your child to get not only a Catholic Education, but the best Education around.

It's so wonderful as a parent to know that you are sending your child to a school that they love to go to. My little kinder monkey loves his little family and continually aspires to want to learn more. How great is it to send your child to a school that values family involvement, strives for educational success and still on top of that takes the time to get to know your individual needs? It's beyond great , it's inspirational. Keep up the great work, teachers and principals.

I have two students; 3rd and 1st grades at Epiphany. I am happiest about the level of attention that my children receive due to the student/teacher ratio. My children are challenged academically and also have an opportunity to receive religious studies - obviously this can't happen at public schools. Epiphany students are natural leaders which is a direct result of the opportunities presented at their school. We are very grateful to have our children attend Epiphany.

I m very happy to have my daughter at Epiphany for six years, because they have excellent Staff and Teachers. Teachers plan, and prepare lessons, using classroom presentations or individual instruction. Teachers also grade papers, prepare report cards, and meet with parents and school staff to discuss a student s academic progress or personal problems. Epiphany is a Family Catholic School dedicated to opening young minds to the powerful combination of spirituality and academics. Summated by H. Guerrero

I agree with the comment below. Epiphany is a great school with excellent teachers who have taught us to be respectful and to appreciate what we have. I enjoyed the trip to D.C. over spring break 09. The two schools: Holy spirit and Prince Of Peace front Fremont, CA they were cool. I would wish to meet with them one more time. Thank you for letting me have a great spring break.

School is geat. Teachers are wonderfull, classrooms are smaller so there is more one on one with the teacher. Lots of emphasis on family. School has lots of family events . Parents are required to participate in school events . School needs community participation though.

The common values that are shared in this school create strong and healthy friendships throughout the campus. All staff and faculty know each student. Each student feels that he or she is part of a school family. Academically, the school teaches appropriate content for each grade level, much more so than can be found in the local schools within South El Monte. There is a low student to teacher ratio and only one class per grade so friendships grow ever stronger throughout the years. The school faculty reviews and betters themselves each year for the benefit of the students. There is never a stagnant attitude toward teaching or curriculum which proves that the students' success is always at the forefront the faculty mind.

I moved my daughter from public school to Epiphany when she was in the third grade. I was very impressed with the principal and teachers. Parents complain about the principal with all the fundraising, but they don't see her behind the scenes involved with our children. You can tell at every performance/festival how wonderful she really is. My daughter now in 5th grade is thriving at this school and I really do see a big difference in her. I am proud to be an Epiphany Parent.

The quality of academic programs overall is no different than public schools. Although the new principal is improving the situation, it takes time. Their sports programs are great, given the amount of children that participate! Parent involvement varies on the functions, but overall they are all get involved from time to time. It is a family automosphere.

The new principal places too much emphasis on making the school a cash-generating business. School pride and spirit have definitely diminished under the new administration. I'm disappointed.

Epiphany is great with a little help in resources for projects. They have finally made it possible to have a computer lab for the students and they are working on keeping the staff currently employed. I really see the difference in my child and support the school 100%.
