We are so blessed to have found a school like St. Sebastian. We have a child in their first year at this school attending TK and it has been such a rewarding experience thus far. The school operates like a family taking care of each child like their own. The aftercare program is convenient for working parents and the school offers activities, clubs, and community. We are impressed at how much our child`s Spanish language has grown just in a matter of a few months. The dual language program is one of the top reasons we decided to enroll our child in this school and it has been amazing to hear his vocabulary as well as see him develop writing and recognition. We are comforted that his next year in Kindergarten will be an easy transition because of the thorough and well-rounded prep that he`s received in TK.

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 ?
