This has historically been a very good school that provided a well rounded education. The staff has turned over in the recent past, which has made it difficult to judge, but the newer teachers seem to be very capable.
El Rodeo is a public school offering private school level of services to the school population. With the amount of parents envolvement available, PTA is able to raise fuds and bring in a lot of great programs to school. Programs like, Drop in zones for lunch time. Libarary at lunch time, Cultural Arts programs. Poetry, Writing skills. Reading enhancement programs and many more.
EL Rodeo school remains an 'intimate' campus, where all the teachers know all the students, and actually care about them. The school works hard at developing the 3R's and we were amazed how quickly our daughter learned all the concepts in math, writing, etc.
Teachers are great. Too much homework. Not enough FREE extracurricular activities. Like a school play. Parents are very involved. There are no organized sports teams at all. Teachers are very concerned about students. Very white and persian - not a lot of other diversity. Lots of overly rich spoiled Beverly Hills kids. But it's definitely safe.
After working at this school as an intern for three months, I found that it was very organized. Students were offered the freedom to explore different modalities of learning throught the use of technology, field trips, and project based learning. I was quite impressed.
My two oldest attended this school from '97-2003. The adminstration cares more about test scores than the students. The principal is ineffective and spineless. The population of students is mostly Persian, not white, like the the statistics states. The school is very old and the bathrooms are not kept in top working order. There is no grass for the children to play on, only black top. My children hated their overall experience there.
My oldest daughter is one week away from finishing kindergarten. It has been a tremendous experience for her and our entire family. My husband and I had considered going 'private,' but we are so happy now that we chose El Rodeo. The academics have been great. Our daughter came from a developmental preschool so we were initially concerned when we saw that some of the other students were already reading when they entered kindergarten. However, within a couple of months she was reading and has not stopped since. The teachers are great. The principal is amazing and the PTA, which I have now become very involved in, is first rate. The atmosphere is very friendly and pleasant - a very welcome change since we came from a preschool atmosphere that was not.
This school is great for your kids. All three of my children attended El Rodeo k-8. We love this school and so will you. The teachers are fabulous and the parent involement in tremendous.
