I love La Reina. Amazing school. 10/10 to recommend. Go Regents!
The experience of attending an all-girls Catholic College Preparatory High School is priceless. The freedom to explore and develop into competent, confident, and influential young women through a rigorous curriculum is core to La Reina's Administrators, teachers and religious staff commitment. I feel so fortunate our daughter has been a part of the Regent community.
My oldest daughter graduated from La Reina and is now studying at UC Berkeley, La Reina taught her excellent academics and gave her many opportunities for her leadership, but the most valuable asset was the relationships she built with her teachers and her friends. These friends are still her closest sisters. As she would tell her "Sisters for life". She still is in contact with many of her teachers who still ask me as a parent how she is doing. My youngest is still attending La Reina and with their principal Maggie Marschner the school will have a great vision for many years to come. We have not lost any instructional days and our distance learning has been fantastic! If you are looking for a school who will focus on your daughters' future, this is the school they truly care about your children.
La Reina serves its students by providing them a 21st-century education rooted in Catholic traditions with a focus on female empowerment. The school leadership is student-centered with a focus on embracing traditions while looking towards the future. If I had a daughter, I would certainly want her to attend this institution.
What a wonderful school this has become. Principal Marschner has done a fantastic job of developing a creative educational experience for the students as they are thriving not only in their education but in the Faith as well. Parents should take a good look at how great an education their children could receive at La Reina.
What a wonderful school. At La Reina I grew in my faith and my education I created long-lasting friendships. I highly recommend sending your daughter here to give them the best education and step up in life possible. Thank you, La Reina I love you!
We are so fortunate to have an all girls Catholic school for our daughters. The experience at LaReina is unique in that it is the only all girls' school in our area. The principal and staff are fantastic. The atmosphere is challenging, nurturing, and fun. God Bless LaReina.
I love it here! One thing I love about La Reina is that you are easily able to create your own clubs! Also, the number of sports available to the middle school is a lot compared to the public schools in the area. My old school only had track for girls and that was it. Also, I love the small class sizes! Some of my classes have 15 kids in them while my old school had a whooping 36 kids in each class! The Counseling here is great too! Everybody is so nice and for the short time I've been here, I've gotten some really close friends. There seems to be no serious bullying at all and everybody accepts eachother. There was someone in my grade that bragged alot but the teachers did something about it instead of just sitting there liketeachers at my old school did.

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
