We have sent all four of our children to Pacifica. It was an incredible experience!!! Not only were they well educated in the classroom by outstanding teachers, they were taught to be outstanding young men and women. The teachers engaged in and out of the classroom and encouraged our kids to do the same. Our kids took risks and stretched themselves in many new ways. The school is incredibly diverse, ethnically, socio-economically, and religiously. There is a community atmosphere with an open and vibrant spirit. My kids enjoyed the travel program, played multiple sports, were involved in the arts and excelled in STEM fields. We got involved in the parent community and found it very rewarding. The staff is unified and principled in their approach to educating their students. Our kids were guided through the college process well, ending up with many quality options. Two of them matriculated to UCLA and one to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Our daughter is a current student.

My son comes home from school happy everyday. Although he is a transfer student, he felt at home right away. In past years, he usually had one great teacher, one real stinker and the rest were kind of walking through the process. The Pacifica teachers are all excellent, no weak links, he tells me almost daily. He says it makes a difference when it feels like they really care about you and as a parent, there is really nothing you you want to hear more than your kid tell you they are happy at school.

Pacifica Christian High School is a truly unique school. The small class sizes and good student-teacher ratio provide an individualized experience for each student. Here you are not just another student, and you have a true opportunity to form your identity here among students and teaches without being lost amount thousands of other students. Teachers will make time for you and are very flexible with students' needs. I highly recommend this school.
