We have 2 sons that graduated from LP (2011 and 2016) and our daughter will graduate in 2020. LP is a top notch school with teachers that love and care for their students as if they were their own. Definitely a 5 star school!

Our family has been at La Purisima since 2005, when our oldest started kindergarten there. We have two kids currently enrolled at LP and two graduates. Our older kids were prepared strongly at LP for their high-school education in Catholic high school: both have excelled as honors students at Mater Dei. LP is a small school with a lot of personal attention, but our kids felt ready for the big-school environment of Mater Dei when they graduated. As for the little ones who are still at LP- it`s a great education with enough individual attention to respond to the kids as the people and learners they are. Our child with inattentive type ADHD had ample assistance managing his tendency toward disorganization, and our kids who tend to dive in and do extra have always been encouraged and supported by their teachers. The family environment of the school is really special-our kids know not only most of the kids in the school, but also their parents and grandparents. Families really support each other in times of need. The school is also beautifully and comfortably diverse, with a lot of kids with multi-ethnic backgrounds. Our kids have made great friendships with terrific kids whose families share our values of faith, service, and education. We couldn`t have asked for a better home for them to grow and learn.

Private school tuition seems to go nowhere but up. We look at some of the reasons why and offer the opinion that a private school education is still good value.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
