    Featured Review: Parent says Our daughter has attended Besant Hill School for the past 3 years. As we toured several Southern California private high schools and boarding schools post pandemic, we were immediately awestruck by...The course offerings are progressive and there is a strong sense of community amongst the students. The campus is secure with an attentive loving staff.

    Featured Review: Junior says San Domenico is an amazing school! Every day as I arrive on ourgorgeous campus, I am so grateful to be attending SD and for theeducation I am receiving here. When people ask me what makes SD stick out among other independent schools, I always say our international student body, with studentsfrom more than 20 countries from all corners of the world. Frommy international friends and classmates, I have learned about thediscrimination against Romanians in Eastern Europe, how China’s BeltRoad Initiative is impacting countries such as Zimbabwe, and howTürkiye and the United States’ political atmospheres are similar.
