This is the best elementary school in the area and is very affordable for a private school. My child, who is not white, tested and did well and is now attending the school. I can't speak for the experience of the other poster but I don't see anything racist about the school. It is a diverse, supportive community with people from a diverse set of ethnic, economic, and social backgrounds. Highly recommend.

This school seemed great at first. campus was new and clean. went to open house and tried talking to k teacher. She was having a conversation with another person(white) so i waited. another person came up and she began answering that person's(white) question. so again i waited. another person(white) came up and again, she starting talking with them. WTF???

I didn't want to send my son here after that but my wife insisted we try so we made an appointment to take the test as we did with 2 other private catholic schools. They wrote me a letter indicating my son wasn't 'ready' to enter kindergarten. this would have been fine if the other 2 test we took indicated similar or even 'average' scores but the other 2 test we took put him above his age level. the other two schools also did the tests one on one and actually showed us the results of the written and an explanation of the oral and visual observations. St Brendan doesn't do one on one, they herd the kids to be interviewed as a 'group' in front of 3 teachers and no explanation of the test.

Something is not right at this school. i would strongly suggest going elsewhere if you care about your kids having a rounded realistic view of the world.

St Brendan school is not a good school . My son took the test overe there. They said he failed. His teacher from the other school said he's ready. This school is a prejudice and racist school!!!!

St. Brendan's School is an excellent choice for those considering a Catholic education for their children. It is under the supervision of the Department of Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Their philosophy is to provide an academically challenging Catholic elementary education for the multi-cultural people of the parish. An integral part of the religious program is the monthly school mass which is planned by individual classes and held in the church next door. I visited the school during the summer break. I dropped in unannounced, which didnt seem to bother the principal one bit. She invited me to look around and was very welcoming. However, the school secretary was not that happy at my unscheduled visit and seemed a little agitated by my questions and wanted to hurry me along. So off I went on my own to explore.
