We sent our 3 daughters to SBJA from K-10. We sent 2 of them to the preschool as well. They had great caring teachers, strong academics, a good spiritual atmosphere, made great friends and learned how to make a difference in this world through service. Two of them have gone on to become teachers themselves, ...  Read more

We enrolled our son in South Bay Jr. Academy (SBJA) in the 1st grade and he is still there today, now in the 7th grade. Why SBJA?

I have two children, a 25 year old daughter and a 13 year old son. My daughter spent her school years in Torrance public schools, which are well known for being a level above many of the surrounding school districts.

Our 2nd year here became a nightmare for us. Our child was repeatedly bullied. Response to our pleas for intervention fell way short of our expectations. The appalling behavior our child suffered was normal, they said. We suggested counseling for the bullies. It was denied. (The school employs no on-site ...  Read more

I love the community atmosphere that South Bay Junior Academy provides for my children. It feels like a family. The staff is attuned to the individual needs of each of my kids. My three children are all very different, and therefore their needs are different. Their teachers go the extra mile to find ...  Read more

There are several things that make this school special. First, the fact that the staff takes VERY seriously it's mission to teach the whole student ( not just academics) means that all the students leave SBJA with a wonderful ability to appreciate others who are different from them. There is no bullying. ...  Read more
