Fantastic, private, Catholic school!! Students study 3 languages (Mandarin, Spanish & French) as part of their regular weekly schedule. Diverse student body, rigorous academic curriculum and fun after-school program partnership with the Boys & Girls club of Santa Monica. What's not to LOVE about this school ?
