    The school was good but closed in the spring of 2012. For the record I disagree with the review of the preschool program the preschool director was amazing. I had my daughter there and she loved it and I saw that teacher get on the floor with the kids to work at their level. I'm terribly sorry the diocese saw fit to close the school....I still think they owed us 1 more year. Principal had strong and appropriate leadership but had difficulty working with parents.

    the quality of this school depends on what class your child is in. Most of the teachers there seem wonderful and approachable. The preschool program is not recommended. The hispanic teacher is very caring and nuturing but The older caucasian woman is very cold and doesn't seem to enjoy her class. She runs it like a boot camp. kind of a sad way to introduce your child to school.

    Annunciation Catholic School is an excellent enviornment for my child. My first criteria for chosing ACS was its academic excellence. I am very pleased with the teachers and principal. My child has been attending ACS for seven years and I highly recommend the small class sizes and the enrichment programs. I myself teach in a public school and my expectations are high. Catholic education is the best investment I could have made for my child.

    We are some students from ACS. We love this school because in June we always have a festival next to St. Philip. We also love this school because it is in a great location with many people in Fullerton. The teachers are great here. We learn what is right and wrong and we get to study God our history science math and numbers and art and music.

The teachers are highly qualified and enthusiastic the administrator is wonderful and knows her students well the other families are giving and conitune to make this the best place for our kids. I would definitely encourage others to bring their children here!

    This school is home for my family! We ve been at ACS for over a decade and have seen many changes. It offers so many opportunities to a variety of learners! There's Art Spanish Choir Pre-Albegra and Algebra a wonderful Christmas Musical every year PLUS the curriculum is of high standards! So many of our graduates are doing wonderful in high school. They are very prepared to take that step and as a parent that's when a solid elementary education shines through. The teaching staff is wonderful devoted to their students highly educated and caring. Our administrator is hard working at making our school the best. She really knows each of her students and knows their individual needs. ACS has so much to offer my kids Catholic education sound academics and a caring atmoshpere.

    I have been looking for a Pre-school for my daughter and i finally found one. The staff are soooooooooo friendly..... The principal is awesome you can actually talk to her and its always a pleasure.. Mrs. LLwellyn the preschool teacher is amazing with kids they accept 3 years even if they are not potty trained they are open 6AM to 6PM wow! The school environment is like a family everyone is so friendly and helpful. My daughter loves to go to school everyday. Each and every students participate in an awesome Christmas play. They always have something going on its just amazing the activities the school and the amount of support the students get from their teachers and the participation of the family to the church and the church to the school. The school is not crowded thus students gets quality catholic education social and academic.

    My children have been attending this school for several years now. A change in administration a couple of years ago has made a significant improvement in the school. My children are receiving not only a Catholic education but also a well-rounded academic education that is superior to any offered by local area public schools. The school is small but that is a quality that benefits the children s education. Several extracurricular activities such as sports and field trips rely on parental support which can be lacking at times. If you re looking for a good Catholic education and are interested in participating in your child s development I would highly recommend you visit this school and take a good look.

    There is no library! Everything is mediocre including the curriculum. The administration has gotten worse over the years! The only silver lining would be the wonderful teachers.

    When I was looking for a school for my child I know that the one thing that I wanted was a Catholic School. I looked at many different schools and when we say Annunciation we know that the only school that was right for my child. Although the enrollment is low I know that that would make my child a great student with more one on one time with the teacher. I was right the curriculum is challenging enough that I know that my child will learn in a way that will look at God. My child is now in a positive environment. With a child that has gone through all the years at this school I now know that it was the right choice for my child life and learning. I think that the staff is nothing but experienced in all that they so for the children.

    Annunciation Catholic School is still consider pretty new. But from what I've seen and experienced this school is high caliber. The teachers here are wonderful! Not only do they focus on the students high academics but also on their behavior and spiritual life. I've noticed that they bring out the best in their students. In terms of academics and the quality of the teachers and staff I rate this as a 5 star. This isn't a big school with lots of 'amenities' like public schools. If you are looking for a 'luxurious' fancy looking school then this isn't it; but if you're looking for the academics the quality of the teachings and the integrity that the school upholds then this is the school for your kids!

    I really commend the faculty and teachers of Annunciation Catholic School. All my daughter's teachers that she has & had are wonderful! Not only do they teach the kids in high academic but guide them & motivate them in being a true Catholic. The teachers are able to bring out the best in their students. As you know knowledge is power; but your positive attitude mannerism and people skills are essential. Annunciation Catholic School provides all this quality for the students. I highly recommend this school!

    I am very please with Annunciation Catholic School. I undertand that it went through changes for the past few year. I believe that through the adversity and challenge that the school has faced it is now growing much stronger! The instructors at the school are amazing. Our students are with them more than us during the week and it's so important to have a mentor that helps them achieve to a higher level. Eventhough there are not a huge amount of extracurricular activities at the school the education and philosophy of the school is way worth attending. All Catholic schools has fund raising or should I say most private schools has fund raising so that's something to be expected.

    I have the unique position of having graduated from this school of teaching sixth grade for four years there of being a parent of two graduates from the school and currently being the principal for the past year and a half. I have watched this school weather stormy seas and have helped it stay afloat. It is now on a steady course with a deep Christian Catholic philosophy to guide it an excellent staff of highly qualified teachers to facilitate learning and a fantastic group of parent and parish volunteers to lend a hand whenever needed. As we go through our recertification process this year we are making changes including the investigation of becoming an International Baccalaureate school. Our student body is very diverse both ethnically and economically with scholarships available for low income families. We are a holistic technologically savvy physically fit and service oriented community with Catholic Christian values.

    This school does not support extra needs learners or use modifications for those learners. The discipline policy is obviously uneven. The turn over for administration quite high too much emphasis on fund raising ought to just increase tuition to ensure funding is available. No extra curricular programs directly implemented by the school but they allow private sources to advertise their services for these activities (read pay for it!) no technology science arts sports. Just the very bare bones of education curriculum. Too much focus on project production instead of skill building. Far too much emphasis on fund raising.
