Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to St. Turibius School!

On behalf of the students, parents, teachers, and staff, I would like to welcome you to our school. St. Turibius is a Catholic elementary school located in the heart of the fashion district in Downtown, Los Angeles. Our school serves students from Transitional Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. We are committed to developing the whole child by forming our students in body, mind, and spirit. Our mission guides the wonderful work taking place in our classrooms everyday.

We acknowledge that parents are the primary educators and proudly collaborate with them to support our students and form children who will be leaders in our church and world. St. Turibius’ faculty and staff are dedicated to creating experiences that allow each one of our students to develop their God-given potential to the fullest. In order to meet our ever-changing world, we are committed to continued growth and learning to ensure that we continue to support our learners today and those in the future.

St. Turibus School is a wonderful place because of the committed and hardworking students, parents, and staff that share their talents and gifts with our community. These collective efforts create the safe and positive environment that exists and will continue to foster our students to be Christians, life-long learners, problem solvers, respectful citizens, and leaders.

I joyfully walk this path as principal of St. Turibius School in commitment to educating our children and showing them God’s love. I invite you to explore our website and contact our office at (213) 749-8894 so that you can visit St. Turibius School, home of the Warriors.
