St Bede The Venerable Elementary Reviews
No foreign language taught. Without Spanish these children will grow into adults who won't be able to find jobs in California. Laughably, art is taught by volunteer parents who do not possess art degrees (yet, the school is rich and could afford to hire an Art Center graduate)! Teachers appear to be annoyed much of the time.
Make sure you verify beforehand if your child's teacher is credentialed by the State of California. Private schools do NOT have to hire credentialed teachers, they can hire at their whim. We were disappointed with the academics, homework on things NOT taught in class, and the lack of grassy playing field; kids play on a hard, hot asphalt parking lot--OW!!! Many other parents pulled their children out, too, but if you have close friends there--and you're part of their clique--you should do okay. If that's the kind of values you want for your child...
this school teaches students to reach out of the small la canda "bubble" and learn more about global issues. yes- we know that some teachers are not certified.. but that doesnt mean that they are not good teachers. there is leadership- done by class presidents student body presidents and of course our principal. also- the school has great facilities for learning- the lab, computer lab, library, and religious ed room. sending your kids to this school is a very smart decision
Poor leadership and uncaring teachers. When asked by parent to help, teacher remarked, "Not my Job." Remember you are paying for this abuse..
Some "teachers" do not have credentials from the State of California. A lot of homework with things not taught in class. Many snotty parents with matching bratty children and a smug atmosphere. No leadership. Disappointing on every level.
