Carnegie Middle School has some of the most amazing teachers. My son and my nephew both attend, Their 6th and 7th grade English teacher Mrs. Cobe (Mrs.Ross - she changed her name) really pushed the boys to be successful. She never gave up on them, she told them that they could do th work and stayed after school and came in early to help all her students. Now they are in 8th grade and doing great. Ms. Cobe talked about college almost every day and it motivate the kids. I hear that the principal retired and I am hoping that then new one is better and more caring. Some of the other teachers are also really good but some are mean and don't wanna help there kids do good.

My daughter attends this school I looked around at several schools before putting her in this one. I live in Hawthorne Unified School District and refuse to send my child to her home school. I was able to meet with the teachers at Carnegie and was pleased with what I saw and what was discussed. I was able to observe several classes and meet with with the principal. I am pleased with my child;s academic success thus far and will continue to support my daughter and this school. I am looking forward to new and innovative plans administration and staff is pursuing.

I am a current teacher at Carnegie Middle School. I have been a teacher for over fourteen years. Carnegie is the most pleasant school that I have worked at. It is also the most diverse, from students to faculty and staff. I value that. The parents are involved and responsive. I have read over the reviews of the school, many of which are over two or three years old. It helps if a person who is providing a review has a greater perspective about the state of education across the board, has children in school, and has worked at various campuses in various capacities.The current administration is responsive to families and staff members. The students are well-behaved and respectful. Our students were excited to and responsive to our first year competing as a Scripp's Spelling Bee School this year. Our students compete and win awards. We all know that nothing is perfect, but as an experienced teacher and former administrator and coach, I will tell you that Carnegie is one of the best middle schools in the South Bay. I plan to continue to teach here for a long while.

My years in Carnegie was great! I am 89 graduate. The school is a very diverse that offers experience with variety of cultures such as Pacific Highlanders, Hispanic, etc. Academically it was excellent. I really enjoyed math and science. I remembered the science teacher there was very much into science and was involved in doing research outside of school. We also has a PhD Physic teacher who was in the top 3 choice for the Challenger flight that crashed. I really enjoyed the Physic class and was able to handle Physic in college easily. At first my plans was work for N.A.S.A as an engineer. But after working for different companies while I was in college, I decided that I enjoyed Automation and Robotics design and now am working as a Electrical Controls System Engineer and over the Controls System Staff besides managing the Vision System Technicians. I believe Carnegie was a great contribution to my success. I named my son Andrew. I also really like the name.

I am a teacher at Carnegie Middle School. I believe that the school is good but could be great. Teachers work very hard to help the students before, during and afterschool. The counselors tutor students afterschool to help the students bring up grades/ graduate. The student population is diverse and most of the students are at the school to learn. The students that constantly disrupt and do not do work impede the learning process of the other students. The school really needs parent involvement in order to be a great place to learn.

i attended this school not to long ago and im going to tell you this from personal experience. i think that this school is horrible. i got in fight several times and i almost got jumped twice when i was walking home. i was practicly threatened every day and i wish this was an experience that i can take back. this school is down in the toilet. thats what i think. if i was a parent i would know not to send my kid to this school. i entered as an A student and came out as an F student. the teachers seemed like they didnt even care. also if you were late to class they made you sweep. isnt that a janitors job? Not a students job? students are theyre to learn, not pick up trash. i was looking foward to graduating but they told me i couldnt.

Great about our school; population is diverse and most students get along really well, amazing teachers who work above and beyond, who love teaching middle school kids, and we consider each other family here. It's an average rating because: I do not get the support I need from the administration, I need parents to be more involved in meetings and events, not just call to complain, and due to the budget cuts, we are losing some wonderful new teachers. Parents, it can be a GREAT school if you get involved and work with us. 'We are Carnegie Highlanders and We Have Carnegie Pride!'

I am a parent at Carnegie and a teacher. I am very happy to see the positive changes that have come about since Ms Stroud came in September. I know that students who are not willing to learn and take learning time away from others are expelled

Carnegie has been a great school for my son ( 6th grader) . At first I was a little nervous about Carnegie from a lot of hear say from his Elementary school ( Carson Street Elementary) but this school has turned out great. Parents please don't listen to the rumers like I did . I am ver y happy with the teachers and the school.

Carnegie is a great school, ever since i go to this school they treat me and all the students nicely. The teachers were nice and patient to the students. I'm a straight A student and i began to realize that working hard will give you your fortune. I see all the electives but I can't go because Ihave ESL but I know that Carnegie is the best school ever. ''We are Carnegie Highlanders and We Have Carnegie Pride''.

My child is currently attending Carnegie Middle School and I am very pleased with the teachers, the staff and work product. I would recommend this school to all parents. I am especially thankful for the outstanding teachers and how they take time to contact the parents if there is a problem. Thanks Carnegie.

I am a student at Carnegie Middle school for 2 years now. Yes Carnegie is not a great school but it is not a bad either.But ever since I have went to this school I have relized that this school has teachers that care about your needs and are interested in helping you learn and are trying to encourage the students that it is important to have a bright future and they do try and help. Carnegie in my opinion is a very good academic public school. Well atleast for a public it is a very well rounded school.

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.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
