    St. Anthony High School is a great high school! I had my second daughter just graduate from there. Both got a great education that prepared them for college! Staff and teachers are there for the students. They offer plenty of tutoring and counseling to help the kids succeed!

    I started working here in July and truly feel blessed to be part of such a special community. I have never experienced an alumni as dynamic and supportive as the one I have seen in action here- a true testament to life-long friendships. "College Preparatory"? You bet! Over the last 4 years 100% of SA graduates have gone on to attend college. Last year's graduates alone averaged $80 000 each in college scholarships. The teachers are all credentialed and highly dedicated implementing innovative techniques and administering unique programs that students would not be able to be a part of anywhere else. The 1 to 1 iPad program provides students with a technological advantage and has proven successful where other schools/districts have tried and failed. Students are taught to be respectful of adults of one another of themselves and of their surroundings in a safe and nurturing environment. I am constantly impressed although no longer surprised by the depth and quality of the young people that I am surrounded by on a daily basis. My daughter will be starting high school in a few short years and I am happy to say that this is one decision that will be easy for our family to make!

    My kids noth went to this school. They have kids that do drugs and have bad grades bit they keep them because they get money from the catholic foundation. This school is no better then public school. The staff are inmature and the principal is no good. He is just in it for the money and does not take pride in the school. The outside of the school looks awful for it being private.

    As a parent of two current Saint Anthony High School I cannot say enough great things about this school. My children have had a wonderful experience at this school and have had opportunities at this school that they never would have had at any of the overpopulated schools in the area. If you are looking for a solid education and a High School where every child has the opportunity to shine you could not ask for a better experience for your child. The faculty and administration are available to answer any questions or concerns. This has been a wonderful opportunity for my daughters

    I have a child that will be entering her junior year at SAHS and have two other children that will be entering as freshmen. This school has continually strived to be better every year and has had good success in doing so. They continue to attract the top students in the area because of their second to none scholarship programs. This coming school year in partnership with the Aquarium of the Pacific they added the Marine Science Academy to their curricullum.

    You would hope that Long Beach the 5th largest city in California and 35th largest in the nation would have a great private high school for your children to attend. For several years the school had been on the decline and nearly shut down a few years ago. Last year the school received over $2 million in funding from benefactors and spent virtually all of it on new paint computers and other tangible assets so the school looks very nice. However the visceral problems of poor quality instructors zero supervision of staff and very low standards of educating continue to fester at St. Anthony. The school and its leadership demonstrate very little accountability to students and parents alike.

    I am an alumni and a current parent of SAHS. My son had many schools to choose from but he chose SA. I have seen him grow from a shy timid child to a young man willing to stand and give his opinion. I compliment the teachers staff and administration for all their effort to keep this prestigious school alive. My son is a better person for attending and being involved in the activities. Ms. Barr the principal and Mrs. Rushing the president have done so much to improve the school. The tradition spirit and academic challenges are at SA. I would recommend students to attend be open to other opportunities than the norm. Grow live and learn... that is what I have seen my son accomplish this his first year.

    St. Anthony is one of those small area high schools where given the small class populations the relationships between the student the teacher and the parent are very strong and foster the development of that student. This is an environment conducive to excellence and consistency.

    A great invironment for a kid to develop in even if not a roman catholic. This was a great high school that had the most friendly people I have ever met. I loved this school and I'm not even a christian.
