Totally agree! If your child isn't accepted into the "in crowd" he/she doesn't stand a chance. My daughter is in her 8th year and has not 1 real friend. Total trash attends this school. The bullying is out of control especially if a child in the " in crowd" is involved. There is no discipline for the "special kids". I regret sending my daughter here.

The Pharisees would be proud. Hypocrisy and arrogance are the norm with rigid adherence to medieval-like rules. That is unless you are in the "in crowd". Those in favor can do no wrong and children sadly learn early that certain people are above the rules. Early grades are crowded with no access to basic amenities, like a cafeteria. No compassion for any child who does not fully fit the cookie cutter mold. Why pay for this? Public schools in LB are far from perfect but much better in comparison.

Sent several of my children here as well. A very serious bullying situation which was not handled properly was just the beginning. The principal needs to retire and the staff needs a face lift. Classes are now overcrowded for the early years and dwindle after each grade for many reasons. It reminds me of a cult and if you are not related don't expect your child to play special roles. They truly love the families with the bank accounts as well as their own (meaning any of the family members or close friends) and therefore are not capable of treating everyone equally. Just walk through the front door and let me know who greets you, and better yet with a smile then go to the public school and meet real people who are genuinely interested and care.

Sent several of my children here. Great for the first three years or so, then the nastiness starts. The principal is so far over her head and cannot manage discipline problems. Some of these kids are just shanty trash, and with the favoritism and incompetence they are not handled properly. Great environment for the little but after Grade 4 or so, my kids were damaged. Teachers vary in quality. One was mean, belittling and harmed my daughter forever. I spent almost $100,000 here. Save your money. The public schools in Long Beach are very good.

Well above average, and excellent in school spirit. All four of our children, Maggie 04, Cleary 05, Luke 08, Jenny 09, have had an excellent experience at LBCRS!

I went to LBCRS from Pre-K through 8th grade and i loved every minute of it! Because of the small classes everyone was so close and graduation was so sad knowing you were leaving people you've been with for most your life. It's a great school and i loved it!

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.
