School Reviews

St. Ephrem CA offers so much starting at the top with the Principal Mr. Mercado who is friendly, engaging and quickly responds to any question and concerns. Amazing teachers and staff. During the pandemic of 2020 the principal and teacher's transitioned the children into remote online learning effortlessly! and as a parent that was comforting to know that your child will still have that quality education. A healthy and safe educational environment for your child is exactly what St. Ephrem has to offer! The building is very warm and welcoming, very clean, bright and airy. So many clubs are offered as well as music and sports just to name a few. The community of parents and children is first class all the way. My child excelled here, loved his teachers and his friends This school offers so much! When searching for a great school don't pay too much attention to the ones that put on the biggest shows.
