School Reviews

1 year ago
La Reina is the best school for girls in Ventura County and beyond, BAR NONE! As a graduate, I can say without a doubt that I was so well-prepared for college! Self-confidence, the ability to think critically, and a deepended relationship with God are just a few of the things I found while at La Reina. The school is nationally recognized for its academics, athletics, activities, and much more. It is steeped in the tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame and Gospel values, and was like a second home to me! My classmates became my sisters and even after many years, we are all the best of friends. I truly love this school!
