Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    This school is really good. My son use to go there all the teachers he had where really good with him. My daughter goes there know she is in 3rd and her teacher has her doing 5th4 grade work she's learning how to use power point....

    I think this school is overrated. They really haven't improved for the past three years!

    The rating on this website is completely inaccurate. I pulled my child out of a much higher ranking CA distinguished blue ribbon school in order to send her to Loreto and I drive over 30 miles every day to bring her there and back. I cannot emphasize enough that Loreto is an excellent school with highly trained professional teachers and staff. My child is gifted and her teacher created a special curriculum to challenge her. She has never been happier. The best part of all however is that Loreto is one of a few LA Unified schools that offer a dual language program. The best time to learn a 2nd language is when you're young! At Loreto you have the option of placing your child in a bilingual class where they learn to speak read and write in Spanish as well as English. Great Job Loreto!

    Great school...Is not a true shared decision making staff...Teachers are stifled in using their experience and creativity in designing their curriculum....

  • (10 years ago)

    It is a good school the teachers are really helpful in getting the kids to learn. They try really hard to keep the children interested in school. Both my boys have been going to this school the oldest just culminated (graduated) from Loreto. But all the teachers have been really good and are still good. Leadership is very good also they practilly know each kid by their first name. Fun after school programs also.
