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.
Great school my son has improved so much, sense he has been going there. I only have 1 bad thing to, say and it is about the secretary at the frunt desk they are not helpful and they are very rude.
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!
Good school with great teachers, unfortunately the front desk secretaries are extremely rude and unwelcoming.
This school has the sweetest principal , always trying to make accommodations for everyone , however , it has the rudest secretaries , if they don't like you .... they not afraid to show it
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 went to this school for 1st and 2nd grade. This school is awesome! We moved and she ended up at Woodlake Community Charter..which by the way is Horrible. I wish she could still attend this school. Teachers are great, principal is great, great school!
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. The staff is very involved with the kids and parents, they genuinely care about their students.
The SAS program at Tulsa really exceeded my expectations and challenged my gifted child. His grades and his attitude both improved when we moved to Tulsa!
I love the atmosphere in the school. The teachers and staff are very helpful and always stay in contact with parents. I love that the SAS program starts from Kindergarten as Pre-SAS for children who are more advanced.
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.
My daughter is currently attending Tulsa. The school has a nice atmosphere over all. The ladies in the office have improved their attitude greatly. Teacher's are awesome!!! Only down fall, it seems a bit unorganized. Overall a good school. Great after school and extra carricular programs.
My two boys go to Tulsa and I am very happy with this school! I can see how involved the teachers and parents are with activities and the PTA. It is a are very organized and clean school. The Teachers have all been great! They work very hard with each kid. I am very pleased!
All the staff, parents and students have a great attitude! They have a verity of programs to help the students learn. My child loves to go to school.
This is my daughter's first year at Tulsa and the school is well organized and very helpful. The educational aspect of the school is so much more established than the school my daughter came. The PTA has great parent participation and very informative. Tulsa has a lot of activities and programs for the children and parents. My daughter loves Tulsa and that really make my wife and I very happy.
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.
