This school is great. Dedicated teachers who go above and beyond what is required. The PTA is awesome and puts on many events throughout the year for the kids and family events. I WOULD HAVE GIVEN TULSA 5 STARS BUT the office staff need a great deal of work in the areas of manners, professionalism and affording parents their dignity, especially Ms Lutfi. She is incredibly rude and I truly believe that she doesn't like children. On a further note, glad to see Mr. K (the principal) is gone - he was never there anyway and never returned phone calls or emails.

Tulsa continues to be a great community school. The requirements & tests LAUSD expects are ever changing, but Tulsa teachers & staff don't lose sight of the basic goals of teaching our kids well & helping make them well rounded students. Our children's teachers work very hard & we can see their academic, emotional & social growth. We're also Tulsa PTA members because with parent support our kids have fun trips, assemblies & family events. We will continue to support Tulsa because it's been a great 2nd home for our kids!

Actually, the student has not been placed in a class specializing with his issues. The principal just moved him to another class. He screams and bullies, but too bad for the teacher and 20+ kids in the class.

My daughter just finished her first year of school at Tulsa. I couldn't have been happier! Her teacher expertly challenged, engaged, and made every day count to bolster her learning! After leaving Kindergarten she was reading above a first grade level, doing the tango, speaking a little french, and best of all, sad school was ending. Her teacher was very caring, fair and well organized. I am so thankful that my daughter was able to be a part of such a caring classroom and school environment.

This is my son's last year. He has been here since Kinder and we love this school. We have been involved with PTA and the school since the beginning. Now we have a new principal who is amazing. He is open minded and welcomes parents. It's refreshing! The teachers, staff and parents all work together. We have great children all around. I will miss this school.

They have great teachers who welcomed my daughter, who came in at the 4th grade, with open arms! My daughter was in the gifted program at her last school, but Tulsa has gifted Classrooms... the last school didnt offer that.

I love Tulsa because it is a true neighborhood school. The families of children who attend this school are involved in so many ways. They take the time to get to know the teachers and staff as well as each other. They give so much of their time and resources to help make this the great school that it is. Budget cuts have never stopped us, because our families and staff work hard to make up the difference.

What a difference a mile makes! My son moved from Haskell El to Tulsa El for the SAS program and the difference was like night and day. Not only was SAS a better fit for my gifted son (his grades shot up!), but the entire atmosphere was startlingly different. Example: at Haskell when I proposed we have kids paint murals on the buildings to brighten up the place, I was told that wasn't possible. Then I come to Tulsa, and see every building covered with colorful, student-created artwork. PTA is run by a large, cohesive and enthusiastic team of parents with a can-do attitude. Tulsa also recently won an award for its commitment to the arts. The 4th grade team of Turner and Tanger: outstanding in every way; super engaged, super intelligent teachers. I am ridiculously happy here, something I never thought possible based on my past experiences.

I love Tulsa, my child is at balboa because of father now, and let me tell you biggest mistake i ever did is allow that to happend, the hype about that school is overrated, and the teachers are cold. it's depressing, i cant come back beacuse of custody with child, but if i ever had a regret it was leaving TULSA, and tulsa is no less than them other schools, it's just divers, trust me if you want your child to excell and love school, stay here, if just want to have theB* name then go, but you will hate yourself for it. just remember, is this for the better of your child or you.. if its for you than go, if its for your baby, tulsa is the one.......i loved tulsa, miss evrything about it, and i know my child has been to 5 different schools...no other compares.

It's the best kept secret in Granada Hills. I have twin who have been in seperate classes since Kinder. Their teachers have been great. They both have had the same excellent care. They are both excelling in the classroom. Currently both are in SAS classes. Even though they have had different teachers they are both working at the same level. They have done outsanding on the test scores, both scoring above the 90th percentile in both english & math. The teachers do a great job working together and staying on the same page. The school is not overcrowded and their is a good mixture of races. Tulsa makes learning fun. Tulsa has great family support.

My wife has taught at Tulsa Elementary for more than a decade. During that time I have watched her grow significantly as a person, much in part due to her relationships with Tulsa s students, parents, faculty and staff. All contribute to the remarkably nurturing, upbeat and yet serious-minded school culture that I have watched her internalize and become a part of. We are both very grateful that she has been able to practice her profession among good, dedicated people who work hard to cultivate both minds and hearts. Unfortunately, out of misplaced modesty, she has asked that I withhold my name.

I am a grandparent of one of the students at Tusls Elementary. My granddaughter has attended Tulsa since Kindergarten and is now in the 5th grade. I have been very impressed with the quality of teaching staff, and the leadership of those in the office. I am amazed by all of the Tulsa fundraisers held to help our kids but, what impresses me most about it, is that all of the teachers and well as office staff including Mrs. Molter and Miss. Dixon attend each one. If that is not supporting our kids, I don't know what is. As a matter of fact they are very involved with all of the Tulsa activities. This to me says a lot about their character and the love and care they have for our children. I would reccommend Tulsa to any parent who was looking to send their kids to a first rate school. Thank you....I only hope my granddaughter has the same kind of care and love for kids at her next school as Tulsa gave her.

Tulsa is a culturally diverse school yet still maintains a close-knit family atmosphere. We have some of the most dedicated teachers, and the Pre-SAS/SAS programs are amazing. From the principal to the custodial staff, everyone is friendly and welcoming to the parents and the students. The teachers strive to challenge the students in the classroom and encourage them to think outside the box. The parents respond in kind by supporting the kids and teachers in furthering student education outside the classroom whether at PTA functions or assemblies, or field trips. We love Tulsa St. Elementary...still the best kept secret in Granada Hills!

Tulsa is a top notch school where the interest is in teaching the whole child. While we excel at academics, we enrich our curriculum with character education, classes in the arts and other experiences for our students. Of all the schools I've visited or worked in, Tulsa students are the most polite and well-adjusted children.This reflects the teaching that is going on at Tulsa. The children are happy to be there, the parents are happy to be there, the teachers, staff and administrators are happy to be there. Tulsa is an all around outstanding school on every level.

If you like social engineering, this is the school for you. Way over-rated. This school does not have after school for K5 students (unless you don't mind being put on a waiting list with 30 other students). If you are ever late dropping off your child, be ready to explain to him or her that he or she will be punished for you dropping him or her off late by having to sit in the library during his or her recess -- what a great lesson to teach a child: if someone else is the cause, you will be punished instead.

Tulsa is really the 'best kept secret in Granada Hills.' I have a 3rd and 1st grader at Tulsa, both high achievers. This will be my son's third year and my daughter's second year. I was a little hesitant to send my kids to a public school after all the horror stories I'd heard from other parents and their public school experiences. I decided to go ahead and try it for one year. Well my kids have been there 3 years now, and I love it. The teachers are the best, the staff is amazing and their PTA is great. Parent involvement is high. Everyone is friendly, caring and always striving for academic success as well as helping kids become good well rounded human beings.

I'm pulling my two highly gifted children out of the SAS program at this school, which has continued to miss the mark and disappoint. We just can't wait around anymore for the big fix. The biggest problem in the school the last few years appears to be lack of consistancy: teachers taking too much time off for personal reasons and trainings during instructional time, too many teachers bouncing grade levels, too few teachers using District-encouraged methods for teaching gifted (Javits/Kaplan) while others aren't, some great families and children overshadowed by far too many awful ones... The best of the upper grade SAS teachers have either left or aren't teaching SAS anymore and really should be. Considering that this is one of the oldest SAS elementary schools in the Northridge/Granada Hills area, after six years there is the expectation that they should be able to do better.

Tulsa is a wonderful neighborhood school. I have taught here for three years. We have dedicated, caring teachers and a well-balanced mix of kids. We teach to all levels, with special programs for GATE as well as English-language learners. Many children of the staff have or do come through Tulsa, to me, if we are willing to have our own children go here-that says something. Having seen many LAUSD schools ours is one of the most bright and beautiful! And we actually have grass on the playground! The teachers are always on the cutting edge of teaching and learning, going to many different trainings. It is also a great work environment, the staff is very professional and gets along well, most of us actually enjoy coming to work! I wouldn't hesitate to bring my own daughter here for a top-notch education!

This school just continues to get better and better over the last 4 years. The SAS teachers especially are really on the ball. When the local gifted magnet school sends their teachers to learn from your school, then you know you must have something really wonderful going on! The art, science, field trip enrichment opportunities, and team teaching being done with the first graders this year have really enhanced my children's learning and help them to become more well-rounded. This school has the best support staff with special education and gifted coordinators that really listen and go to bat for the kids. SC

My child's teacher shows caring for her students and assesses their strong points as well as weaknesses fairly and accurately. I am extremely impressed.
