This school rocks!!! I've had three kids go through this school and my last is in 1st grade. We love the teachers and the atmosphere of the school. They are well into Common Core and make learning for the kids. Thanks!

Los Robles offers truly dedicated teachers who care deeply about the success of their students. I have had children in attendance at this school for 18 years. We have never had a teacher we didn't like.

WHAT A GREAT SCHOOL! The new Principal is warm, approachable and very involved in every aspect of the school. The office staff are very efficient. The teachers are outstanding. They are dedicated to giving your child the best education possible. My child loves to go to this school and that tells you a lot.

AWESOME! Despite of all the changes that the school went through this year, including common core and a new principal we have accomplished great things. We have great teachers a very efficient staff and a really involved principal. Parent response to those changes has been great. I am very pleased with my kids school, and looking forward for next year.

This school has great teachers. They are caring as well as top level educators. The new principal is really turning this school around. She is full of energy and has been working hard to bring this school back to being one of the best in the area. The office staff is warm and welcoming and are always willing to help and guide parents. This school went through a few years of negativity due to its previous principal. With the new enthusiastic principal at the helm I can only see positive outcomes in the future. With the excellent teaching staff, I am reassured that my child will receive the best education possible. The parent involvement at this school is also great.

I am very proud to have my child attending this awesome school. Our new Principal is pro-active and is going above and beyond to get this school back to where it should be. Thanks to her efforts, we were the first school in the district to get a new computer lab and she is continually striving to add new programs to our curriculum. As for the teachers, I couldn't have asked for better educators for my child. This year the parents are really rallying together and the community spirit within all of the groups of the school is amazing to see. The positive energy within the school is contagious and things can only get better. If you want a Principal that looks towards the future and strives to provide the best education for your child; teachers that not only care about educating your child but also care about your child's well-being; an expanding group of volunteer parents that are successfully working together as PTA Members, Noon Aides and classroom helpers: and children that are excited about learning.....then this is the school for you.

Los Robles Academy is a wonderful school. It has an excellent new administrator and outstanding teachers! The teachers are very dedicated to their students' success. They are excited about the new Common Core standards. With a brand new computer lab, Los Robles is ahead of many other schools in the district. Everyone on campus truly cares about the success of each child. I'm so happy to see that Los Robles Academy has become such a wonderful school again!

I am LOS ROBLES ACADEMY...I have been a teacher in this district for many years. It's been awful to see that the negative reputation of our former administrator has over-shadowed all of the excellent, dedicated and outstanding teachers and staff our school has. It s important for our community to know that, under the direction of our amazing new principal, the heart of Los Robles can once again shine through! Our teachers always go above and beyond to ensure that each and every child is successful. Come in and tour our classrooms, meet our new principal and see for yourselves that Los Robles Academy has a high level of academic excellence.

The teachers are amazing! We just got a new principal at los Robles and she's terrible. She is the definition of narcissist . "I, me, my.... Is how ALL her conversations begin. How about thinking about the students for once. I'm ready to pull my kids from this school. I hope she doesn't ruin this school too !

I stopped by to offer a musical performance/assembly for the children of Los Robles Academy by the Los Angeles Police Band. The program includes an introduction to each instrument as well as a professional concert tailored for the age group audience. As we are a liaison between the community and the Department this is also a great opportunity to build a positive relationship between the children and the Police Dept. I understand that money is tight but I was blown off with the statement that they could get the high school band for free. Our cost is minimal and I would have entertained a negotiation (putting up some of the funds myself as my grandchild attends this school) but was not even approached or given the opportunity to talk to Dr. Seligman.There are other schools in the area that are taking advantage of this opportunity and cost was not a deterrent. The Director is the Great Grandfather to one of the students and she is very dissappointed that her school has no interest in instrumental music or in offering this program. The high school band, I'm sure is a good one but it won't be for long if music is not fostered. I'm sorry for the children of Los Robles Academy.

Today we had the greatest assembly about bullying. It addressed the problem in a way that kept the kids interested. Great message, great music. Way to go Student Council. Thank you to two wonderful advisors. What an action packed Red Ribbon Week you have put together.

The Principal has only herself in mind. she never stops talking about herself and her family!!! We need a principal that cares about the kids and wants to hear what they are thinking. Office people are not welcoming and friendly at all.

I'm glad I pulled my son out of this school after only 1 year of kindergarten there. He had the "lego man" as his teacher. He definitely didn't cover the entire curriculum and was extremely disorganized. The previous principal did the bare minimum and didn't inspire the teachers. Sounds like the new principal is doing a better job. This school district is open enrollment so if your child is doing well, you should think about transferring him/her to a better school. I rate the school below average for a Hacienda Heights elementary school south of the 60 fwy and average compared to all elementary schools in the district, including those north of the 60 fwy.

My child is in kindergarten, and my alarming concern is that the five year olds are being left alone at lunch. Not a new problem it just has not changed. My son is told daily that he can t buy milk, because he brought a lunch. He is being pulled out of the line, and not allowed to access food or milk. In some schools teachers arrange orders for their kindergarteners to get juice or milk delivered in time for recess, they have another opportunity to buy milk at lunch, and have a shorter school day. This year the Los Robles Kindergarten schedule is over a six hour day, the lunch dilemma is exasperated! They have not allocated for these longer hours to meet student needs. During the hot weeks, many parents approached our teacher about allowing the students to drink water, soon after a student fell ill bleeding from the nose, the emergency doctor said it was due to dehydration. Please help the kindergarteners they are being used in a new situation like an experiment and they need an advocate.

My child attends and has attended Los Robles for the past 4 years and this school is a joke. Some of her teachers can not even speak correctly or teach them properly. She has only had 2 excellent teachers and that is due to the fact that those 2 teachers put all their time on those students and spent their money on their students and truly cared about them. Those 2 teachers I had to fight to get. They always have sub at the start of the school year which is stupid considering there are so many teachers out of work,why are we saving these sub par teachers jobs? My daughter is not ever challenged and test at a 9th grade level but they feel she shouldn't be in the gate program,very smart of this school.And the principal just likes to talk about herself all the time.This school is terrible!

Parents & Teachers work well together we have good leadership and values and that is reflected in our students. Los Robles Academy has great communication with parents and students which helps us parents help our children perform better academically in school. My child has been there for the past 5 years and I have never heard a complaint towards the Teachers or staff & that says a lot of the environment we have here in Los Robles Academy.

The new principal is terrible, i guess the grass isn't always greener on the other side, we should have been happy with what we had, now we have a principal is stresses everyone out, is unfriendly, has dropped the morale of the teachers and the students, check out her old school they didn't like her their either. The only good thing is we have an excellent group of parents who care about the kids and some really great teachers hopefully we don't have to wait to long for her to leave.

I agree with some of the other parents. It is lacking leadership qualities. Too many subs at begining of each year, and after four years we're on our 3rd principal. Also the office staff does need to be more welcoming. They are a bit stiff. But at least that hasn't changed. Some things just stay the same I guess.

My children have attended and currently attend this Los Robles Academy. In previous years it seemed to have far better leadership but most recently it lacks in many areas. The backbone of the school seems to have slipped. In the past three years my child has had 8 teachers and three principals. We're not happy there.

My son teacher was only there for a month and she sent my son back a grade because she had said that his test scores were not at the grade level he was at. He is now in a lower grade level where he is far ahead from the class. It is true about some teachers not willing to do what they need to do for the kids. My son would be at the same grade level if the teacher would do what she gets paid for. This will be my kids last year at this school. I wish you parents the best of luck. The ones that keep there kids in this school.

I love Los Robles and I would like to give a special thanks to one of my exellent former teachers, Ms. Lee

Los Robles is an average school. The administration is subpar. The principal is not doing his job. The teachers and the parents have to pick up the slack. The leadership is lacking and that makes it very frustrating for the teachers and staff. There are some very good teacher and some not so good. I'm afraid that the good ones will leave soon because there is no support for them. Los Robles can be a great school but unfortunately it lacks in many areas especially someone who will stand up for the school and support the teachers.

Los Robles Academy is a great school! The school offers a lot of extracurricular activities such as chess club, cross-country, jump-rope, art, etc. The teachers are also great and ready to listen to parents concerns. My kids don't like to miss a day from school!

Los Robles is a good school. There are some really good teachers and there are some okay teachers. This is probably true for most schools. I think no matter where your child attends, there needs to be parent involvement. There are schools where I can send my daughter that has higher API scores but I am comfortable in sending her to Los Robles because I feel the teachers there really care about the kids and try their best to help them. I know as long as I am involved and know what and how she is doing in school then she'll do fine.

Aside from academics the school culture fosters a real sense of community. Children are given all of the tools to succeed and the school really involves parents in the process. I love this school!!
