All our children have attended El Rodeo since kindergarten and we have personal experience with almost every teacher there. Most of the teachers are competent and dedicated, but a sizable minority of the teachers are very mean and controlling. The administrators have no power or desire to help.

We are extremely happy with El Rodeo. I have two kids that have been attending this school since Kindergarten and they will soon start 2nd and 4 th grade. Overall, I would give this school 5 Stars, as the teachers are well educated, and available. Furthermore, the families are caring and put in time to volunteer their time to make this a better school (myself included.)

Best school ever! Such a great culture at this school. Everyone is a high achiever, the teachers, the students, the faculty and even the parents. Children who attend El Rodeo are independent, smart, organized and very successful.

My son went here for kindergarden and loved it. Very challenging. Many kids are left behind for socially not being ready.

El Rodeo is as good as public schools get. The teachers are fantastic and the staff is great. I've been to interviews for private schools, and they have all had the rudest people ever.

I have to agree with the previous comments. My three children are at the school and they are very happy. Yes the workload is tough but it is a high academic school. The children all come from good homes and the teachers and staff are extremely caring and involved. I can not fault this school at all. It is excellent in every way. Mr. Hoffman and Mr. Painter have zillions of years experience between them so El Rodeo runs like clockwork! Also the campus is gorgeous, quintessential Beverly Hills.

El Rodeo is a very prestigious school located in prime Beverly Hills. The residents expect the highest education, a 100% satisfaction rate and El Rodeo does not fail to deliver! This school is impeccable! The new administration run by Mr. Hoffman, is terrific. I had a tiny small issue for my child and he personally took care of it with in the hour. We came from a West side private school. I always queried whether my child was receiving the best education for my money. With El Rodeo, I KNOW my child is receiving the highest standard and I have that question no more. I LOVE this school and so does my child!

I have had my children at El Rodeo since they were in kindergarten. My experience with the elementary school teachers have been wonderful and I can say the same of the families at El Rodeo. The principal however is another story. She my have an open door policy but she's much more interested in appearances than what's good or helpful for any individual child. she pays closest attention to those families who donate the most $$ to the school.She's up in her ivory tower and in my opinion does more harm than good. The school would be a better place without her there.

The teachers are wonderful and caring, Especially, Miss Anderson. She was always kind and helpful when it came to matters with my son.

The principal never has time for the parents unless they make an appointment days in advance. Not good for correcting a situation at hand or emergencies! most of the teachers are cold and not helpful to students. The good news is that a lot is expected from these students and a student who excels has a chance to prove him/herself. I wish they had a tennis team.

Having had my children attend school in a couple of US cities and abroad, I can safely say that El Rodeo is a fine school. When people talk about inadequate or excessive homework, I chuckle because the data is clear -- homework does not matter to long term educational or life success. And when folks speak about private schools, I chuckle louder because the same thing is true. The 'hidden' secret of private schools is that the teachers are not required to be certified and are lower paid. Maybe others are willing to pay extra to subject their children to a generally lower quality education (but 'better' people), but not me. Some folks will not like the student population or the mix of folks, but there is no question that El Rodeo kids perform well on tests, participate in activities, and will matriculate to the the superb Beverly Hills High School.

I've great classmates there. I'm new on this school.

This school is not my cup of tea. First, lets look at the homework load. 5th grade and 1 sheet of writing. How are these children going to learn? There is low security, so anyone can take your child home! Trust me, do not send your children to this public school. We tried, and it wasn't working out. I sent my child to a private school and she is learning and she tells me what she learned everyday! Sometimes, I say 'I didn't even know that!' because I didn't. Spend the extra money and send a child to a private school!

The Parent Body at El Rodeo is excellent. Involved parents and nice families.

El Rodeo greatly surpasses the quality of the pricey private school I sent my oldest daughter to for years. The academic needs of all students are met here. The brightest students are challenged and the challenged students are supported. The music, theater and art programs are superior. The principal and teachers are very attentive to the needs of students and parents. The families are so much more down-to-earth and value-oriented. The only thing lacking is competitive sports.

After researching several schools in the area, this is one of the best schools in the public school system. Why pay for private when you can get the same level of education, if not more, here at El Rodeo. However, I will say that Pat Escalante, the school principal, is not in touch with the student and parent wants and needs. The cliques seem to be a concern for some parents but you are going to get that wherever you go. I would say to just be an active parent and volunteer in your child's classroom. This will give you a different way of bonding with your child's teacher and allows you to see how well or bad your child does as a student. The extracurricular activities and connections the kids make here are priceless!

My child has done well at El Rodeo. He started there in kindergarten and immediately his teacher recognized that he was a gifted child. The school worked with him by putting him in advanced classes and then he was put into the honors classes. The art program is excellent as well as the music, poetry and computer labs. Parent involvement is open if parents are interested and the principal has an open door policy. My son is now in 8th grade and has many friends and is happy at the school.

This principal is useless. She does not have a clue how to run a school. The teachers are wonderful and caring.

EL Rodeo has always been a great private level public schools. You'll find a community of parents, teachers and administrator (Specially in the most recent years) that care about their students. Everyone works from heart to make a better education system for the students. It's all about students learning. I am proud to have three children going through this school. You'd love the new principal and assistant principal. Although it was scary to see the change but the outcome has been fabulous. With this team of administrators, El Rodeo will continue to be the shinning star in the Beverly Hills School District:-)

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
