There is a reason why Viewpoint, La Reina, Chaminade and Oaks Christian love St. Patrick's Day School students! We've been here more than three years and continue to be amazed by the academics and especially the nurturing at this fabulous school! There really is no other school like it. The students learn so much academically, as well as in the community service learning program. St. Patrick's has been a blessing, and in our opinion, it is the best school around with two accreditations AND credentialed homeroom teachers! You won't find another one like it.

St Patrick's is an amazing school, not only academically but also on the human level, helping our children grow to be respectful and caring individuals as well as engaged in their community. The teachers bring years of teaching experience as well as their high motivation and dedication to teach and challenge our children in a very positive environment. School staff is amazing and parents' involvement make St Patrick's an outstanding school with no equal. We couldn't wish for any better.

St. Patrick's is an amazing school! I have a student there now but I also have a high school student who attended St. Patrick's. This gives me a unique perspective. I see how much this school prepared him academically and socially. Not only does he rank high in his class but so do all of his previous classmates (attending various high schools in the area). St. Patrick's offers an excellent academic curriculum but also gives every student an emotionally safe environment to reach beyond his or her comfort zone. They learn to become confident public speakers, express themselves artistically and challenge themselves physically.

After having a bad experience with public school, we searched for a school that cares for their students. So glad we found this one! Small size classes, computer lab, art & music program, community service projects and Christian values. What more could you ask for? Love how academic they are. Shows in the growth of my kids! Now Im not worried when they move on.

St Patricks is a strong academic school and has a very nurturing environment. There is a single class per grade k-6. The teachers are excellent and very experienced. Parents are very involved and supportive of each other and all the students.

St. Patrick's is fantastic. Wonderful faculty, caring teachers, great curriculum, family atmosphere. St. Patrick's develops the whole child: mind, body and spirit.

It not only takes a village to raise a child it takes a school like St. Patrick's Day School. St. Pat's teaches to the whole child and is a community of family. There is no other in the Conejo Valley that comes close. It has always been the best kept secret in the area but everyone should know about it. My children have a love for learning and I owe it all to St. Patrick's

St. Patrick's Episcopal Day School has a unique combination of stimulating academics and focus on character; children are given the tools to succeed both academically and as thoughtful and responsible members of their community. The classes are small and the atmosphere is very supportive and nurturing. We feel very fortunate to have our child at St. Patrick's!

St. Patrick's is a GREAT school! Yes, the children are challenged academically and are more than prepared for middle school and high school. But more than that, they are given personal attention and they are taught values. We could not ask for anything more.

St. Patrick's Day School is a hidden gem in the Conejo Valley! Highly academic, but nurturing at the same time. All graduates are accepted into their first choice of middle school. It's the only private school with credentialed homeroom teachers, and it's the only school with two highly acclaimed accreditations! The teachers and principal are truly caring, and we couldn't have hoped for a better environment and education for our child.

St. Patrick's has provided our son with a wealth of education, as well as a firm footing in social relationships geared to affability and sharing rather than competition and winning. The depth of education and inquiry startled and pleased us. The teachers care, as does the administration. Such a great start on life!

My son attended this wonderful school all the way from kindergarten through 6th grade. I get tears in my eyes when I reflect on his positive experience. Children are known and cherished in this school. It is a close-knit community with positive parents and teachers, and strong academics. Because it is not visible from the street, people tend to not know about this school. But it is a gem. My son was well prepared, emotionally and intellectually, for middle school. It is by far the best private school in the area.

This is an amazing school. A few years ago a new headmaster was brought in and she has done a fabulous job raising the standards of this school. It is by far the best private elementary school in the area. The academics are first rate as are the language, art, music and computer programs. My children have a smile on the face everyday as they love this school. It is a wonderful close-knit community of families. Any parent would feel very lucky to have their child attend this school.

Our child is thriving at St. Patrick's. The teachers have been outstanding. The principal is intelligent and provides strong leadership. She is respectful of the parents and interacts with the kids on a daily basis. The extracurricular classes, including math, computer and art are fantastic. The parent board is active but not overbearing. Anyone considering private school for their kids in the area should tour the school.
