St. Anthony of Padua School, a parochial school under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles, was established in 1940.  St. Anthony of Padua School is a Catholic elementary school operated primarily to meet the religious, moral, intellectual, social, cultural, physical, and psychological needs of its students to prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century. The school reflects the changing demographics typical of Southern California. The parish and school population is increasingly Hispanic with a good representation of Filipino, Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders and a few Caucasians and African Americans. The student body is 98% Catholic and the school staff is stable and well represented by parishioners and former students.  All school personnel recognize the unique gifts of each student and realize that building self-esteem by developing programs that afford opportunities to share these talents is extremely important. They believe success instills confidence and a positive attitude allowing growth of each person’s special God given talents.
