[Some parents have] decided to enroll [their] children because of the school’s diversity, its close-knit family atmosphere, peaceful and orderly environment, and her long-standing relationships with the teachers...with African-Americans, Samoans, Filipinos, Chinese, Latinos, Vietnamese, and Caucasians as fellow students,... children feel at ease with different cultures.
More than half the children at the school receive substantial assistance, said Church of the Visitacion pastor Father Thuan Hoang, who escaped from Vietnam in a boat in 1987 after the Communist government closed the seminary.
