Former student here. All I remember from this school were wonderful memories. At the time I was thinking beyond the unimaginable. I wanted to become a astronaut, or an archeologist. There is one teacher that I will never forget that encourage my love for dinosaurs and art. I love this school best years of my young life.

Braddock Drive Elementary and Gifted Magnet is a great school with wonderful teachers. If I could improve this program, I would like a cleaner eating area and bathrooms. I would also like for the school to have a better art program. I believe that the staff here is welcoming to all new-comers in this school, as well as listening to complaints given by teacher, parents, and children. I also believe that this school is very good at answering questions. Whenever someone asks a question, someone is always quick to answer. Overall, this school is a warm facility with an amazing ability to challenge children mentally and emotionally.

Two years ago, we moved our twin daughters from a private school to the Braddock Gifted Magnet. It has exceeded our expectations in pretty much every respect. The girls are in a truly diverse class with other engaged students and are being taught by teachers who are understand the demands of teaching gifted students and who are also deeply committed and compassionate. In the year and a half that they have been at Braddock, we have seen them grow both socially and academically. But perhaps the most important factor is the intangible -- they wake up in the morning excited to go to school and they come home at night excited to share their day. This is what public education was meant to be.

This is a gem of a school. A caring and dedicated faculty, collaborative and responsive principal, generous and supportive parents and bright eager children. A California Distinguished School, this school has been achieving growth targets over time and across the demographic groups. I would recommend Braddock to any parent looking for a safe and effective local school. I feel more parent involvement would add much to the environment.

My Son is in the Magnet part of Braddock. His grade 2 teacher is excellent and I am hoping he continues to be challenged.

We like this School, my elder son attending this school from Pre-K and now he is in 4th grade Magnet program, my second son also started in pre-k and now he is in Kindergarten. Teachers and office staff are great and helpful. I am not aware of bullying in this school as mention by one of the parent in the previous post

My child was a victim of bullying at Braddock. When he went to the teachers, and I spoke with the teacher, coordinator and principal, I was told the bullying never took place, even though I saw an incident with my own eyes. My child became listless, cried all the time, and became reluctant to go to school. We finally pulled our child out and into another school, and we have our cheerful, carefree child back. One day, we passed by Braddock, and my child's face turned dark with anger. "That's my old school. They were mean to me." Shame on you, adults for not listening. http://www.greatschools.org/parenting/bullying/6317-bullying-school-movie.gs

We have been fortunate to have our two children attend Braddock Gifted Magnet (this is separate from Braddock Elementary which shares the same campus but operates as a separate school). We love the small school community, rigorous academics and wonderful teachers. A recent study about the school proves just how formidable our little school is: http://projects.latimes.com/schools/magnets/cst-scores/list/ This year we are seeing an increase in class size (not happy about it) but overall the quality of the curriculum and students is wonderful. With all the LAUSD budget cuts, we hope this gem of a school in a slew of mediocre LAUSD schools continues to be a beacon of light for parents looking for a great school option. Yes families come from all over and it's not as easy to have a neighborhood environment but the classroom experience for kids is top notch and each of the 4 magnet teachers is amazing. If your child is identified as a gifted or highly gifted student, this school delivers. More info at www.friendsofbraddockmagnet.org.

I am truly grateful to have my son in Braddock's Gifted Magnet. The teachers are superb! The magnet office is fantastic! The principal is extremely dedicated and loving. If I had to identify a complaint it would be the lack of parent involvement. The school really tries to encourage involvement, but I just don't ever seem to be satisfied with turnouts. I realize that the school can only do so much to get parents to come. I get the feeling that the parent culture is a hands-off approach to schooling. If we as a school could change that culture, and get more parents involved in our children's education, we could have the shining jewel of LAUSD on our hands!

Unless you don't work, I would not recommend enrolling your child. I'm all for parent involvement but this school relies heavily on it due to extreme budget cuts, lack of imagination and motivation. The office staff is lazy, rude and unfriendly with a sense of entitlement. Except for just one person there, who is amazing and should be running the school in my opinion. The lack of unity in this school is apparent. There is never a sense of joy or real presence there. My child was part of the magnet program and the division in the school is clear, which I find arrogant. Not because the magnet is "better" but because their magnet program doesn't even live up to the banners on their walls. This Title I school needs a real eye opener. Your magnet kids and parents shouldn't be pulling all the weight.

This school has been amazing for us. We have two children at Braddock, and not a day goes by where my kids don't rave about something they have learned, the teachers they have, and the friends they have made. Having also come from private schools (like other reviewers have mentioned), we were so pleasantly surprised by the small class sizes, the VERY pristine classrooms and the wonderful resources that are present in a LAUSD school. We feel that we 'hit the jackpot' with Braddock. -- very blessed indeed. We would recommend this school HIGHLY! It has been superb.

Braddock Drive Gifted Magnet is an amazing program. Coming from a private school I was a bit terrified but my daughter and I both fell in love with the amazing group of magnet teachers. They are amazing!!

I can only speak with certainty about the gifted magnet program at Braddock, it is a wonderful opportunity for any child that is 'identified' gifted through LASUD. Like the previous comments from parents it is like giving your child a 'private school' education without the cost. My son is doing very well even with the challenging curriculum. The teachers are developing these students into the leaders of tomorrow. The students are taught 1-2 grade levels above the grade level standards for LAUSD. The principal and the staff really care about every student and it shows!!! Call the magnet office and ask for a tour...you will not be dissapointed.

The Magnet program is wonderful it is indeed an undiscovered gem. Small classes and gifted students create a fast paced challenging learning environment. Joyce and the teachers are superb and put the childern first. Don't make the mistake of judging the school by it appearance. It is really a diamond in the rough. The childern are very nice. The playground is well supervised and very little bullying is evedent UNLIKE Cowan Ave school in near by Westchester where bullying and disruptive students were allowed to degrade the quality of education in most classes. My daughter came into this school with potential and has really excelled. My daughter's test results were near perfect! Socially the same childern advance with each other from class to class. This allows them to develope real friendships and improved social skills. This was a real frustration with Cowan Ave School. Westchester parents please take a look !

Braddock Elementry has a gifted program that is far better then the private school my daughter was previously attending. Gifted children think differently then other kids and it's imperative to find a teacher who speaks their lanquage of intelligence. My daughter scored high on the CA Standardized Tests and she was able to get in. There is still room in the second and third grades as of this writing, Oct. 1, '08.

Regarding the Magnet program, it's an undiscovered gem. Small classes, gifted students. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade teachers are amazing, creatively adapting the curriculum, using technology to extend the learning,actively teaching at a high level. They genuinely care about the unique learning profile of each one of their students. The instuction in writing is very good. Very diverse population and the teachers capitalize on the different backgrounds and interests of the students and families. The 5th grade in the magnet is the exception, very low level of instruction, no creative assignments, and a very unpleasant class climate (bullying, name-calling, cliques, etc.). Magnet is not really integrated with the home school, except when it comes to including the magnet school's CST/STAR test results so that the home school can get out of Program Improvement.

I think the principal is a 4-star instructional leader who strives to make the school a superior school in all aspects, instruction, environment, inclusion and pride.

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.

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.
