  • The teachers are amazing, knowledgable, professional and very loving to the children. Academics, state-of-the-art softwear available in each classroom!
    My daughter has been at St. Anne's for 2 1/2 years now, and she loves it here. She loves her friends and her teachers, and more importantly asks, "Mommy, can I go here until 8th grade?"
    There is much parent involvement, extra-curriculum, and afterschool clubs. It is a small school, everyone knows everyone, and we are all like one big family wanting the best for our children. Safety is 100% visible here too!

  • my son has been at St. Annes for five years now and it has been wondeful. It is a small school and it easy to deal with people directly and not be overwhelmed with tons of staff that don't even know who you are. It has been a great experience. We are looking forward to finishing the last four years with St. Anne's

  • My daughter has attended St. Anne's since Kindergarten and she is now in the 4th grade. It was important that my daughter attend St. Anne's because I am an alumni and I always felt safe going to school when I was growing up. St. Anne's provided me with a good academic foundation. I went on to graduate from UCLA twice, ending with a Masters degree in Social Welfare. I expect more from my daughter and I believe that St. Anne's will provide her with the same solid foundation.
    We have had great experiences with the teachers at the school and I love the effort that the administration has in regards to constantly improving the school. I love all of the after school activities such as hip hop class and science class. Most importantly though, the school teaches morals, faith and love for God.

  • Our son is in 4th grade currently. Saint Anne's is a great school. Offers great academic programs. It's faculty works very hard findind many new ways to improve its curriculum every year as our science program, music program as well as to new technology to improve its level of education like new computers, musical instruments and smart boards for our classrooms. Saint Anne also provides financial aid to all those who need it. And to highly distint our School is affordable in comparision with all the schools in our areas. Highly recomende.

  • My daughter is in first grade and our whole family loves St. Anne's School. This is her second year there and we have nothing but great things to say about the teachers, administrators and other families at the school. Would definitely recommend the school to any other family. There music program, teacher enthusiasm, and curriculum is like no other.

  • This is my daughter's 2nd year at St. Anne School. She is now in the 1st grade. When she started she was very shy, and only knew three other students. She not only made friends in kindergarten, but also with all the students from the school. Everyone is very courteous, helpful, and caring.
    My daughter has always spoken highly of her "buddy" she was paired-off with in kindergarten and misses him very much!

    The school provides great education, morals and values, and a family based environment. This allows for the parents and children to feel confident, safe and comfortable.

    In addition to a formal curriculum, the school provides extra curriculum courses offered on campus and off campus. My daughter is taking keyboarding and music for the 1st time and enjoys it very much!

    Being a part of a small school, encourages you to participate, volunteer, and feel proud of the teachers, principal, Frances, and all the students!

  • My daughter is in kindergarten and I just get so impressed every time she comes home and shares all the new and exciting things they learned in class. Honestly, over half of what she shares with me sounds at least 1 grade or 2 grades ahead of her school level and age. It fascinates me to hear my daughter how articulate and how much she is learning every week. They are learning the U.S. currency at this point, something that I don't think I learned until I was at least in 2nd grade. I'm a working mom and it a plus plus when you hear your child come home and say things such as, "God created us all and we are all God's creation." Or "God created everything on earth and we need to take care of what God gave us." That is just 2 of many examples I can give as a working mom. The teacher is very knowledgeable and patient with the little ones and I know my daughter loves her school because even with a 101 degree temperature she cried because I kepted her home.

  • My daughter has attended St Anne School since Kindergarten, she is now in 6th grade and believe it or not, she still enjoys school, she has had some fabulous teachers, the principal is great and Ms Frances is amazing and all are very approachable. The children know all the teachers and most importantly all teachers know the children.

  • Good Morning,

    On behalf of Soles 4 Souls and Sport Chalet, Francisco and I want to thank everyone at Saint Anne School.

    We weren't sure how this shoe drive was going to turn-out due to the late notice, but every student, family, and faculty member made it happen. We collected 153 pairs of shoes!

    We are blessed to be part of a wonderful school filled with students who want to help their community and others in far away places. This was our first time coordinating anything like this, and it was truly an amazing experience!

    Again, thank you for your help and for allowing us to do this.

  • This is the 3rd year that my daughter will be part of the St. Anne family. The staff, from the principal, to his assistant, to all the teachers, are all very involved with the kids. As a parent, I feel very secured that when I drop off my daughter every morning, I know that she is in good hands, and that she is getting a very good education for the fraction of the cost of any other private school in the Santa Monica or West LA areas. Aside from the good education, they also put emphasis on responsibility, discipline and values.

  • My daughter is in first grade and we love ST. Annes. The education is great so far and she is learning alot. I believe that the school needs a little bit of more enthusiam from the parents.Since the school is so small there should be more closeness amongst parents and kids and I dont see that. The school lacks enthusiasm!!
