The staff here are like family. The attention and dedication they give to the students make me very comfortable. I know they are in the best hands while at school. They are a school active in sports, academics, art. Whatever it is, you can be sure the students will be involved in some way large or small. I would recommend highly Christ Lutheran Brea School again and again. Give em a go. You will be so happy you did.
