This school gets amazing test scores but this is mainly due to the parents. The kids at this school get very little individual instruction. Instead, teachers assign hours and hours of homework each night which forces the parents to essentially take over the teaching role. If you child falls behind and you work full-time, good luck getting the teacher or school to take any responsibility. It's automatically your or your child's fault. So if your kid is naturally bright and/or you have time to teach them the curriculum, you are in great shape.

My daughter went to this school for 2 years . Academic is really good however there is so much bullies in the school. My daughter transfered in different school now and her attitude change totally. We need to build the foundation for the first 5 years. Environment has impact with our kids.

Office staff is always rude it seems like you are bothering them. Principal thinks that she is superior than you and doesn't seem to care for students as she claims. As for the teachers and rest of staff they are great. They would do so much better if they didn't have that dark cloud on top of them!

The teachers are awesome, hard-working, and really care about the kids! The PTA is so supportive, even though it's a small core group of people who do the majority of the work. The principal is kind, receptive, and fair. The office staff have such a tough job--dealing with disgruntled family members and the ton of paperwork that comes across their desks! I love the school--it's not perfect, but they have treated my son and daughter really well, not to mention my husband and me! Go there with a sense of humor, respect for all, and an open mind--you'll be treated well!

Horrible. Principal is the worst. I have 3 kids. Highly disappointed. Don't let the 10 rating fool you....try a different school....maybe a charter....keep your kids away from this place!

My daughter attended for only 5th. I felt that she didn't get very much individual attention. Her schoolwork was never returned until the end of the year. Teachers never gave much input. Everything had 3's on it, when she's clearly an A student. There was no real explanation of the grading system on board. I was not impressed with the teaching methods at this school.

Well the bathrooms are absolutely disgraceful always overflowing, teachers seem to think that they alone have the power to collectively teach academics while seeming to think that a little discipline is bad yet they are always stressing over it. My point is that this school has terrible hygiene and is a center of contracting illness if you step foot into it, while discipline lacks a lot as kids have no manners and don't place themselves in other shoes. I would not even dream to admit my child into attending such a school

The culture of bullying is strong at Superior. My experience there shows that it comes from the top down. The principal seems nice until you express a dissenting opinion or don't "fall on line". Then she is cold, condescending and ineffective. My child's teacher is a completely "cold fish" who has made my beautiful child feel ostracized and victimized. Beginning the year a happy, vibrant, school-loving, self-confident child, who now expresses a feeling of being friendless, singled-out and dreads going to school is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. This teacher affected another child in that class so much that the child had to get counciling for extreme anxiety and ended up leaving the school. This is not just accustoming to classroom culture, but daily relentlessly beating down the children's creativity, joy and individualism. Just wrong! As far as being a dissatisfied parent "hiding behind the anonymity of the Internet" - we have repeatedly taken our concerns to the teacher and principal, thinking that our child's perceptions may have been mistaken, only to have our child repeatedly treated in a retaliatory manner. And the "welcoming" school community is actually very closed & unfriendly.

I have been at this amazing school since 1999. I have 8 kids and 4 have graduated from here and 2 currently attend with 2 two still to follow. I could not have asked for a better place for my kids to get an outstanding education while at the same time being instilled with amazing values and character. The staff and Principal go out of their way to make these things happen. They share in a great parternship with us parents who want all these attributes for our children. The front office staff is loving, caring and always on point with any parents or childrens needs. The Principal is kind and loving and warm towards the children and parents, she is not just our Principal ,but our friend. The teachers are truly caring and welcoming to parent volunteers. My kids still come back to see their teachers eventhough the older ones are in high school and college! I believe my children are of amazing character and it all stems from this school! The inviorment is so positive, children flourish here. As I like to say, "you can take the kid out of Superior, but you can never take the Superior out of the kid!" I and my children are truly lucky to be part of such an amazing, loving place to learn!

I love the staff, especially the ladies in the office, they are the backbone of our school. We are truly fortunate to have a principal who cares so strongly about the students and the school. Our principal is always available to parents and students, she is caring, loving and genuinely interested in the well being of our children. Our school has a great PTA and wonderful parent volunteers. Unfortunately there are many parents who don't want to participate. It's a shame to see negative reviews posted with mean spirited comments by people hiding behind the anonymity of the internet. If you are really unhappy with something at our school it would be better to go directly to the source and address the issue.

I have been a parent of Superior for 6 years now! This school is one of the top schools in the Nation and it is because of the team work of the Principal, Teachers, Staff, Students, and Involved Parents & Community members. They keep this school going as a top notch school even with all the budget cuts and negative support of some individuals. As for the office staff, I truly appreciate those ladies, because with the cuts to the office, dealing with arrogant/rude people, and being the 'messenger' for LAUSD policy/procedure....they get it done! Our students never feel the effects of the cuts. The one downside is that every year it seems to be the same group of parents who volunteer on a regular basis (for PTA, school events, Committees, etc.)...wish more parents volunteered! As for the fundraising, I know for a fact that Superior does NOT get much funding from the federal/state government, because of the low percentage in English Learners and Below Poverty Line students, so the amazing PTA raise alot of money to fund many things at the school that directly affect our students.

It is a great academic school, except the Principal is out in la la land. She talks with a high voice and talks down to everyone, as if they are young children or something. If they got a great Principal to replace her, the school would be even better.

The school has great teachers and offers a great education, but the Principal, Mrs. Scubert, and her new Coordinator, Mr. Thompson must go. Mrs. Schubert has way too much power going to her head and just does not listen to any of the faculty, staff, parents, or students when it comes to most situations that happen throughout a given day. She needs a lesson in leadership and in listening. The same goes for her new Coordinator, Mr. Thompson, that she just hired this year.

YEAH! Our great little neighborhood school is now a Blue Ribbon School. Superior is very deserving of this honor. The entire staff works together with parents as a team to make attending this school a wonderful experience for any child. On the outside it is clean, neat and very well taken care of. On the inside, from the front office to the library to the classrooms everyone is very knowledgable, helpful and dedicated to the education of their students...If you want your child to receive an amazing education...this is the place to be. The school is very family oriented with a warm, welcoming feel. Volunteers are welcome and appreciated and they have a wonderful and very active PTA. I have two children and I feel very blessed to have such a great school in my own neighborhood.

This school is a great but the real gauge is my kid's love of this school , she had an amazing year in Kindergarten which is a great start for her, teachers and the Principal ( and she is very easy to approach and communicate with ) are very dedicated and caring, the PTA is very involved and dedicated, even the school volunteers and front desk girls are truly amazing. This is a real treasure in the Valley ( without a lot of hype ) and i think there's more great things to come.

Superior is an amazing school, with wonderful teachers, aides, admin staff, students & parents. The comments below made about the principle are unfair & not true. Mrs. Schubert speaks to you with respect & sincerity & she deeply cares about every child at the school. She is articulate with her speech yes, but that is not directed towards the parents in any condescending way; it's simply to lead by example. The kids here respect & look up to her so much, & she takes that responsibility very seriously. By her speaking the way she does, students learn correct pronunciation & intelligent speaking skills. Parents making unfair comments below should expand their minds a little bit and understand the principles true intentions. We had an amazing experience with Mrs. Thomas for Kinder & we re thrilled to be part of this school. The YMCA program here is top-notch too!

This school is great! The teachers are great, the office staff is great! I get a phone call as a reminder before events (and there are lots of them!) and I was shocked to discover that the amazing school website was done by volunteer parents, I though it was paid by the school budget! It is so well done! Parents are involved and it shows! High scores = caring staff and parents! And the scores are high. Creative kids staff are great too! Principal and V.Principal are both great! they work well together! PTA is great! I can go on and on... Well done! All of you!

How fortunate we are to have such a wonderful school in our neighborhood. I was so hesitant to send my daughter to public school in LAUSD, but wow, was I surprised. The staff and PTA at Superior are so dedicated and just amazing and all that dedication has made Superior a California Distinguished School!!

This was the first year my 5 and 7 yr old daughters attended Superior. They love the school and I enjoy the communication I have with both their Kindergarten and 2nd Grade teachers. The only complaint I have is with the principal. She does lack communication skills and she is a complete control freak (for lack of a better word). Other than for the Principal, whom I might admint does a great job in keeping the school above specs. We are so lucky to have our kids in what is now a California Distinguished School! Yeah!

I agree, My husband went to this school 22 years ago. So he wanted our son to go since we lived across the way. But the principal has very poor communication skills. She speaks to you like you are five. But the teachers so far are really great with the children. The Kindergarten teachers the best I have met.

I have never seen teachers that go above and beyond their call of duty. Not only are they involved during class time but you can see the concern even after classes. The PTA is amazing and the school has the greatest Parent Center ever. I have a third grader and a first grader and they love the school. Thank you to all the staff and parents who come up with ideas to help upbring good citizens and provide parental support.

My daughter has completed her second year of attending the Special Mix Pre-school at Superior. In the Fall she will be in Kindergarten.

They will not be disappointed.

As a mother of a kindergartener, I am very impressed with the dedication and passion of the parents, teachers, staff, and administrators. I recently got involved in PTA and other activities and was excited by the warm welcome I received from the school's 'veteran' parents. I look forward to sending my younger two kids there because I truly believe that even though their individual needs may be different, Superior will teach and nurture them to reach their full potential.

My son is just about to complete kindergarden, this year has been absolutly the best to start off his educational career. The teachers are extremely caring and interested in the wellfare of the children. I wouldn't send my children to any other school in the area. They have art and music classes everyweek. They really try to keep the parents involved and informed about what is going on in the school. We are very excited about next year and can't wait to have another wonderful experience at this great school.

My older son went to Superior from 1st-4th grades. He never once had a teacher that didn't care. Most of the grade levels have terrific teachers. They have a SAS program that is wonderful. My son is a quick learner, so instead of letting him become bored they dove deeper into the supject matter that they were covering. My younger son now goes their and has the same first grade teacher. I feel very lucky and priviledged to be apart of Superior Elementary.

What a wonderful hidden treasure! The school is beautiful, well maintained, with new things being added all the time. Everyone is open and friendly. The administrators are wonderful, the teachers are great, parent support and student services are awesome, and the amount of involvement and focus on the children is insurmountable! This is definitely a public school [worth] looking into to send your child/children. Don't believe me? Call and ask to make a visit with your child, and see for yourself.
