My daughter was at Playa Del Rey from Kinder and she just graduated from 5th grade. She had amazing teachers who were passionate about teaching, 100% committed, and hardworking.
The teachers, support staff, and Ms. Blue helped her grow academically, emotionally, and socially. My daughter loved going to going to school everyday and we will miss Playa Del Rey very much.
Very competent and knowledgeable teachers, who love teaching! My daughter has been attending PDR for the past 5 years and we have had wonderful experience with the teachers, support staff, and Ms. Blue.
This school cares mostly for Asians students. Could care less about black students. They will unfairly give Principal Awards based on a misguided grading system Uses GPAs when LAUSD does not sanction GPAs at the elementary school level.
My daughter is currently in kindergarten at PDR, and we couldn't be happier. This is a small neighborhood school and there is a great community feel, with lots of participation by parents and families. The principal is everything an elementary school principal should be (skilled, diplomatic, patient, caring), and the teachers are not only dedicated, but also some of the most skilled professionals I have met (and I'm a former teacher). PDR is very diverse both culturally and socio-economically, and everyone sees this as the asset that it is. I really can't say enough; I'm so glad that we moved into the neighborhood.
