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.
