The school looks cute when you drive by but it is such a disappointment. People keep pulling their kids out. It just gets a little worse every year. Communication is lacking. There are good and bad teachers like any school. The office staff is not always nice. The principal gets a 2. The soaring eagles is just okay nothing more. My kids say they have not been bullied but they talk about it seeing it all the time. The charter didn't make anything better. We're just waiting to see if we'll win a lottery so we can get out like everyone else.

I'm a parent who lives in the neighborhood, and went to this school as a child. My child has been there 2 years. The after school care program Soaring Eagles is Excellent! The people that run it truly care about the kids and I feel my daughter is safe there and very well taken care of. The Principal really cares about the school and is always involved with all aspects of the school even after hours. I realize that dealing with the LAUSD is frustrating, and although both teachers my child has had at have been excellent, I have a concern with the participation levels of the teaching staff. At our recent Harvest Festival, I was disappointed to see that only 6 of the 24 teachers at the school were at the event! I believe this is in part to VERY low parental participation at the school. The few parents that have taken an active role in the school are left feeling frustrated and overworked. It is slowly improving, but can be much better. If teachers see the parents passion for their kids education then perhaps they will join the teachers who are already going that extra mile. Without a firm commitment from parents and teachers, no school will prosper - it s a symboitic relationship!

My grandchild goes to this school and she loves it! The Soaring Eagles is the BEST after school program I've seen around. They are very caring people. So far everyone at the school has been very supportive and knowledgeable. The principal communicates very well on all the needed information.

We enrolled our son in the kindergarten class at the beginning of the school year. It has been great so far. Our son loves it there. The food program has been excellent and the cafeteria lady very helpful. His teacher is very nice and he loves her. The after school program, Soaring Eagles, is really awesome and the guy that runs it seems to care a lot for the kids. We love the community feel in the morning when we all line up on the school yard before class. We love that time of the day because we get to meet the other parents and get a feel for our son's class mates and who he is hanging out with. Over all it has been a very good experience for our family so far. We live in the neighborhood and are grateful to have such a safe environment for our son to learn and grow.

I'm not sure why there are so many negatives reviews. My son just entered this school being in the first grade. I know "several" that have had/have their kids here. It is a wonderful and SAFE school! My son's teacher is awesome and challenges my son and works extremely well with his needs. The office staff is very helpful, along with the principal. They put effort and really care about their school and their NO BULLYING. They sons teacher make a big effort on teaching empathy and communication. She really works with parents and does what she can and reaches out of her own pocket considering LAUSD budget cuts. The school as well. The PTA works their behinds off no matter what. If anything changes I will be sure to revise, but as of right now from my own personal experience and about a half a dozen others, Emelita is the BEST!! And they also just became a charter school =).....go Emelita!!!!!!

This school is just okay. It's not terrible and it's not great. The problem is the test scores keep going down. The PTA borders on insane, but there are some good teachers here that do good work with the kids.

This school is awful. The principal and teachers have ruined this school. Worst school EVER!


Posted March 4, 2013

It's a very average school. The teachers and staff don't seem to care. It's really disorganized. Who ever wrote the last glowing review must be a staff member. It is not the worst place ever but it is nothing to brag about.

BEST SCHOOL EVER!!!!! This school has excellent teachers and staff members. They help my child with his work, personalities, and are there to help anyone with anything. The principal is a very strong person and is not afraid to speak her mind. She helps the school function and does much of the behind-the-scenes work. The academics at Emelita are fabulous. They challenge my child and make sure he always has some kind of hard work to do. It will help my child in his future. THANK YOU EMELITA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you have a choice go somewhere else, anywhere else. The place is depressing. The teachers teach to the test and they can't even get that right because the scores have seriously dropped. The few good teachers are afraid to speak up and the principal is always hiding in her office. There are no extras for the kids like other schools. You can join the pta but it looks like the school doesn't want the parents involved. They seem to be trying and they do a few things here and there. They used to do all kinds of fun stuff in the past but rumor is the lady gave up. The teachers dont want to do anything extra to make things better, I guess its only about a paycheck to them. There is no pride in their work. The school is a total mess and it shows! It makes me sad and a little afraid everyday I have to drop my kid off at this place. It shouldn't be that way, school should be good and safe place.

This school is horrible, careless with our children and documents from them, the people working in the front office are rude and do not give explanations when you come with a complaint or question ... not even able to say good morning and let alone a smile from them personally every time I go I have met rude people, with bad attitude always .. if they treat us rudely to us as adults ... how do they treat our children?. Also my child has been changed teachers three times in four months and I don't think that is good for the child nor the parents.

PI school and it shows. Unsatisfied with some negative staff attitudes and lack of parent/teacher connections. I have four children and this has been the worst Elementary yet. My child is unhappy with being mistreated by the teacher only to have the Principal to act as if my child is WRONG about the teacher's ways of behaving. This kind of humiliation leads to poor self esteem and lower academic success! Our taxes pay for this??

The principal cares about the students at this school. The teacher quality is top rate/high where there is technology in the classroom. The CST scores for our subgroups were 965 and 918 respectively. BTW, that rates up near the best of the schools. And the kids are happy here. If you are looking for a good community neighborhood school for your child to thrive at and if you care about your child's well being -- then get involved at school to make it great where ever you go. The world does not need any more complainers -- get the facts and do your homework. For most schools look at the sub-groups, talk to the staff, and make up your own mind on what's real. This school is a hidden gem as mentioned previously. This school is for folks looking for a great education in a nice community in a good neighborhood area for their children. The parents who are involved in school go all out to make this a great experience for their children, for ALL children at the entire school site, inclusive of the parents in the classrooms, parents on the councils and parents running and participating in the PTA and booster club. PS the ratings have been manipulated on this site. This is a good school.

This school was once a great school. It still has great potential. It is tucked in a safe residential area of Encino, with many of it's students living in the surrounding homes. There are a handful of wonderful caring teachers who love their jobs. Unfortunately, the schools Principal seems to be interested in running a business not a school. She is concerned with the school loosing money but she is not concerned with the actual quality of education or classroom environment being offered to the students. She directs the children like soldiers and lacks respect for the parents. She mismanaged the class sizes this year and has left students without a stable classroom, being run by substitute teachers who are clueless how to teach and the children have no routine or schedule. The parents have no reassurance that there will be any resolution for these matters. It is just so sad that a great school in an upscale area, with so many willing and involved parents has gone downhill so quickly. Many parents have pulled their children out. Sadly, I do not see this changing anytime soon, so I would not recommend Emelita.

My children have thrived at Emelita. The teachers do a great job and I've found our principal to be very supportive. It's a small, safe school and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to parents looking for an elementary school. The smile on my child's face at the end of each day says it all. He loves his school and his teachers.

I am very sad that this school is not the same it was when my children started there 5 yrs ago. I have seen so many changes. It so saddens me that this schools moral is so low now. It went from a huge sense of community to a no sense of community.. It events are not the same as they used to be, They no longer allow children to wear costumes on halloween and have a parade at the end of the day the all the students look forward to. It is very sad. If I was to have to enroll my child at this school now I would say run and go else where......

I love this school. The teachers do what they can to give the students what they need. Thank goodness for their PTA. They are so involved in creating programs for our kids and always coming up with lots of fun things for the school. My kids are happy there, and that is what is most important.

All the teachers are great, especially Mr. Estrada. This school is very fortunate to have teachers who care a great deal about the students.

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.
