All three of my children have attended this school. The kids graduate and are ready for the best high schools in the city - Harvard-Westlake (my alma mater), Loyola, Marymount, NDA, Archer, etc. Parent community is fun and supportive; lots of love there. Staff and teachers are the best. My old Lower School Headmaster at Harvard told me this was the best Catholic school in the City. He was right.

Debbie, SMT's Principal, is one of the kindest and most caring person you'll ever meet. She truly cares for the children and wants the best for them.

We love SMT! It has a very high academic level and promotes strong Catholic values. The community is great, parents are involved and we have tons of social life. I have small children and they wake up excited to go to school every morning!

SMT graduates consistently enroll at the top high schools in Los Angeles. SMT's curriculum emphasizes strong general knowledge in English, Math, Social Science, Foreign language and Arts. Students are taught to think on their own, to communicate their ideas eloquently, to develop a lifelong interest in reading and to participate in a fun yet always challenging academic environment under the guidance of qualified and caring teachers. Extracurricular activities include Music, arts, science, chess and various sports disciplines.
