My granddaughter attended here. We were in attendance at the Chistmas play last year. All the classes were well organized. All the teachers and parents worked together. My Granddaughter moved on to middle School and is doing fine thanks to her later hers at Haskell Elementary

My daughter went to private school 7 years and this is her first time to go to a public school. She is now 5th Grade Magnet here in Haskell and she loves it. We really like her teacher Mrs.Elkayam..she said all her classmates were very nice..The fifth grade Magnet curriculum is full of activities and field trips and they concentrate more on child's prep for middle school.

There are problems with bullying. The principal is on top of it. LAUSD could only recommend that children who are the bullies be referred to counseling, but do not need to go to counseling if they choose not to. I hope that this changes in LAUSD. It is sad....My children have been victims of bullying....I hope that the parents of those bullies would see the their children have issues and need professional help.

My daughter was excepted by the magnet program, for her 4th grade year. This is her first year in haskell and she loves it, I also see she is getting the best education there and everyday she has something new to share with me about her class. I am very pleased with her teacher and aschool and my daughter is very happy to be there. And for those parents who think kids from other cities need to keep to their cities. Well lets just say my daughter deserves to go to any school out of her city for a better education.

I do agree with you.... Other kids from different cities should stay in their city. Cars coming in from all over the place makes the area look bad.

My son first year at this school as a Kinder student. Mrs James is a very kind and wonderful teacher and my child is very comfortable here. I tried to pick a teacher but they did not grant my request but in the end I am happy with Mrs. James. I do feel my child is at a faster pace and is being held a bit behind due to other kids but The Principle and staff is absolutely amazing! Although the food they serve isn't great, and the options isn't great that i have to pack my son lunch each day, the school is really a good school.Only thing I wish was that the school would limit itself to the area that it is in instead of bringing in kids from all other cities.

this school has been the worst for my grandson in terms of getting what was supposed be a good education from a four star school,thru out his years at haskell he had to endure some very bad teachers ,switch class rooms just to be able to move on ,this past semester the cafeteria hit rock bottom when it came to feeding their student ,not only did my grandson not recieve proper nutrition because they did not have enough food, they slapped together what ever they had sent him on his way. to make matters worse the the principal moved the graduation to the high school and put a limit of two tickets per graduate to their graduation thus depriving other family members other than their mother and father to attend a very important big step in their young lives,i would hope in the future that other family's don't have to go thru the same as we did these past six years

GreatSchools gives Haskell a 6 out of 10, and that's a pretty accurate reflection: a middle of the road score for a middle of the road school. There's nothing outstanding here, either positive or negative. The "Math Science Magnet" is a ruse; teachers here freely admit that the amount of added emphasis on math and science is negligible. There were experienced and inexperienced, competent and incompetent teachers both in and out of the magnet. The main advantage is that your child will be in a classroom with children whose parents were organized enough to fill out their magnet paperwork on time, which does weed out the bottom rung. Parent involvement is low partially for cultural reasons, and partially because it is discouraged by a stagnant and entrenched teacher-run PTA. Not a good school for gifted children, but average kids will do okay at this average school.

The biggest strength of this school is that most of the teachers are very experienced and are creative and engaging with the students. There are arts, music and dance programs offered on part time basis. They have many excellent support programs for children with special needs. Unfortunately, the parent involvement is fairly poor and the principal at the time of this review was not leading with enthusiasm or encouraging participation.

Haskell is a great school to have your kid in. My daughter has completed 3rd grade now. With the exception of one of her teachers, which is no longer at the school, they are all great! I look forward to my daughter's teacher next year. I'm sure he/she will be added to the list of 'Greats', along with Mrs. Nicsinger, Mrs. Bartlett, and Mrs. Sethi. The principals, too, have been wonderful individuals as school leaders. Mrs. Elsky is very informative to us (parents) of anything related to the school or our kids. Keep up the good work Haskell faculty & staff!
