We sent our son to this school several years ago and were dissapointed by several things. For one there was an ongoing scandal from the previous administration that was impacting the school staff. Second, our son's teacher lacked the passion we were looking for in an educator. We transferred our son to the South Pasadena school district and are much happier with the system and education level.
PROS: Catholic environment, nice school grounds, nice church
CONS: Low morale, volunteer/script
