School Reviews

We have had our son here for a year, and his academic achievement improved greatly after attending the top public school in the Pasadena district. We are Christians, so we love the balance of strong academic excellence with Christian growth opportunities through the solid Bible teaching and chapels. We also love that our son as an elementary student gets a blend of montessori and traditional methods of education that has proved to give him a love for learning and independent study which will only foster great preparation for his future educational endeavors from middle school and beyond.
