School Reviews

All five of my children attended this school from pre-k through 8th grade. This school prepared my children well for Bishop Kenny. They all graduated from Bishop Kenny, graduated from college and graduated from graduate school, medical school and law school. There is a reason they call this school the best kept secret in Riverside.
