School Reviews

We love Ventura Missionary School. We have three children who attend. This is an art enriched school that focuses on the whole development of a child. All grades are learning Spanish, music, computer, art and get to go to the school library. All the home room teachers have their credentials too! That is a rarity in private schools. We love that when we come to school it feels like a family.

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
