Does anyone have any recommendations for elementary schools in LA (esp. in the SF Valley)?

That is great to see the University of St. Thomas (Houston) on that list. It is a little surprising, but the current President hasn't done enough damage yet to its Catholic identity (thank goodness!)

Thanks Q. I know some folks at St. Monica's. From what I have heard, it is a great school with heavy parent involvement.

I must say that some of the Institutions listed probably replied with tongue and cheek, especially the Jesuit ones and the CUA.
