  • The principal at this school is terrible. She doesn't listen to the parents or the students. She always sides with the teacher no matter what the complaint. Bullying is also a problem at this school and it goes unchecked by the principal. The teachers give points off for the smallest infractions so the kids have to go to school on Sat. to make up the points off for minor things. This is the worst school in the whole Conejo Valley because of the principal.

  • Excellent math teachers, Most of the other teachers are very nice and trying to do their best given some of the students behavior and attitudes.

  • LCMS rocks! I have been going there for three years(this being my last year) and i have loved it! The teachers are amazing and all the social activities make it easy to find friends and feel comfortable. Most kids are slightly intimidated by the fact that there aren't any windows in the school, but honestly, once there for a while, you dont even notice it. I have been in all honors since seventh grade and have loved every minute of it! i totally recommend this school to anyone!
