If every child went to this school, there would be a way better world. I learned to treat everyone from all backgrounds with respect, learned about different cultures, picked up French with Madame Altman, learned to play recorder with Mr. B and if I run into any teachers at a public place, they will always remember me and ask how my parents are doing. It's definitely not the nicest-looking school, but maybe that helped build character even more! :)

Mary law private school is the best school I ever been to, this school taught me more stuff than I would learn at public schools, the teacher's at this school are really nice and help you a lot if you have hard times working. I really miss this school, Mr. Jc and seor Rocha were the best teachers I could ever ask for, there are a lot of friendly students in this school, I had some friends at this school and let me tell you this; they were and still will be my best friend's in my heart (Charisse). Trust me if you would like to enroll your child in this school you should, your child will have a great experience at this school. Sincerely, Mya O Lopez.

I cannot stress enough how wonderful our experience has been with Mary Law Private School. My child has been there for three years, and it has been an absolute joy to watch her learn and thrive under the stewardship of her teachers. The class sizes are small, so kids are able to get plenty of face time with teachers. Also, because the school is small, the kids are friendly with each other across grade levels. We feel so very lucky to have found MLPS. What a gem!

I`m a new parent wanting to put my child at Mary Law School. I came without any appointment. I was able to talk to the lady in the office, I had a very pleasant conversation with her. She was very knowledgeable about children"s growth, development, milestones and most of all guided me on how I could assist my child in kindergarten because he didn`t make it to the required age. I love what she said, "an additional year is a gift of time ", for those kids who aren`t ready to embark into a structured kinder program. With the time spent with this lady (forgot her name) was a moment of learning that my child is not different from other children of his age. I hope she provides all parents the educational information she has given me for a short meeting. I was impressed and will definite enroll my child to Mary Law. Thank you for the info provided.

A school that integrates values, good manners and right conduct with academics. Prepares children in nursery program socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically. These preschool children are equipped with the skills needed for school readiness and success when they start formal school in kindergarten. Administrator has strong knowledge in administering the instructional and operations of a school. In addition, children with special needs are given early intervention before referral to special education services. I highly recommend this school.

Actually I''m an uncle to two graduates of Mary Law in Oxnard, both of whom had gone on to be very successful. My niece is now a registered nurse and is doing extremely well in her profession. My nephew is now a graduating student of a prestigious California state university and is eagerly looking forward to a rewarding career in psychology. Discipline and work ethic are developed during the formative years. And that's when they were at Mary Law School. My gratitude as a proud uncle to the teachers and staff of Mary Law!!!
