Towne Ave. has made phenomenal work with my kids . They are progressing over the pass three years and meeting the state's high standards for a high academically performing school. Towne is an urban impacted school that is succeeding in educating all students! Also I like how prinipal and teachers work together to have the kids busy.

Towne is a wonderful place to work at and is surrounded by a great community. We have made great gains at our school with our test scores and working with all of our stakeholders. Towne is a high achieving school and I am proud to be a member of such a wonderful place. Our next goal is to obtain more technology that we currently lack and to push forward in making more gains in instruction with all of our students.

You have some really exceptional teachers then you have some that are the complete opposite. I had to pull my daughter out of kindergarten in order to save whats left of the love for school.

I really like the principal he seems to really care about the students but one of the kindergarten teachers has a eally dirty classroom and the rpincipal really seems to do something about it. It was nice to see a principal who is as concerned with health and wellbeing of children especially the youngest of them all who can't really speak up for themselves.

Towne Ave is an exceptional school. My son is going into the 4th grade next year and every year he has had wonderful teachers. Every staff member, that is including, the facility staff, cafeteria staff, teachers, office stam staff, and especially the principal, have made us feel very comfortable. Every issue, maybe positive or negative, the staff members have responded very efficiently in resolving the matter for us. I am very satisified. I am definitely sending my other son to this elementary.

Extremely unhappy with Mr.Hirata's leadership as a principle. He allows the office staff to be unprofessional. He is very slow at returning calls no matter how urgent the matter. A school needs to have a good leader and Mr.Hirata is not. There are several elementary schools in Carson, I would caution parents to explore those other options.

My son has been fortunate enough to have Ms. Harrison two years in a row and he has done exceptionally well, academically under her guidance. The music program has provided a very creative outlet for my son. I am glad he was able to participate. The school is very adamant about stressing parent involvement and feedback. My overall experience with this school has been very good. I wish I didn't have to leave.

My little sister who is 12 years younger than me attended this school and when I was in 5th grade I attended for one year. There is such a thing as over disciplining children. At lunch, there is no talking to the other kids or putting your elbows on the table and if you do, your child will have to wash down all the lunch tables while the other kids play. Seems to me its more of a parents job to teach table manners not the lunch ladies job. There are other ridiculous punishments that I don't have enough room to write about so I will end with saying that as a mother I would rather have my childs school focus on education, not punishments. There are other very good schools in Carson to send your children, including Caroldale, Bonita, Carson Street, Del Amo, Dolores and 232nd Street.
