Granada Elementary Community Charter 5

It's a collaborative team effort of teachers, principal, parents, and students. Kids are allowed to be kids and not just a statistic but expectations for success are high. Everyone needs to do their part.

Students are held accountable for their academic performance and behavior. The school celebrates effort to improve as well as just grades.

Bucket Filling program schoolwide for positive self esteem and awareness of other's feelings. Respect for all is emphasized.

Teachers work hard to teach and meet the needs of each child depending on the many different abilities and circumstances.

Two years ago the school surveyed all the parents and staff regarding homework. Studies show homework does not improve academic performance at all. Based on the data and the survey results, homework was adjusted per grade level.

The teachers at Granada are great! Both of my children had an awesome experience here. Their teachers were wonderful and were always available for feedback and support. They are a community of learners and bucket fillers. Acceptance of all students is encouraged and bullying is not tolerated . Students are happy and are priority. Unfortunately some ignorant parents occasionally give negativity. For the most part you will always see a friendly face and a welcoming smile.

It does the opposite. Kids are bored to tears. They are not challenged what so ever!

This school is a joke! At orientation the PTA president spoke only in spanish, never in english!!!! This is not an emersion school. Every kinder class was 75% ESL. When an english speaking student is done with their work they can go "read in a corner or be a great asset to the ESL students" told by the teacher. No SAS program as far as I can see. No curriculum for English speakers. This school is a disgrace to the community it is in and no one from the community attends this school.

LAUSD, let the teachers have more control in their classrooms. Stop making them do things for the kids that the parents should be doing. (Breakfast in the classroom, lunch program - almost every free lunch student has a parent who wears $200 athletic shoes and a nicer car than me. it's only $4, come on.)

This is not the school's fault. Like every school, they have to give in to political and parental pressure from lazy parents who don't want to be bothered with homework.
