Overall the staff has been very effective and supportive towards student education and safety. I will say that my child's kindergarten teacher was not the best. He actually regressed. However, he has a wonderful teach this year and has improved significantly. I can say my son enjoys his friends and loves President Ave. I can also say I do feel safe him being there, which is very important to me.

Love the school, absolutely love the teachers. The neighborhood is not at all questionable. I've turned down two schools with API scores over 800 to bring my child here. I've interviewed teachers, sat in classrooms, and spoke with other parents about their experiences at all three schools. What I've learned during this "school shopping" experience is this: API scores are not conducive to 'better education'. It is your child's teacher who provides that. Parents should work closely with their child's teacher to achieve academic potential rather than rely on state test scores to do that job. I've selected President Ave. because not only do the teachers and administrators respect you and your children, they all have the same goal as you: To have fun while learning and to maximize your child's potential.

My son has attended President Avenue School for the past two years. This is not his home school and I am so happy Dr. Annor has accepted my son into this school. Eventhough it is behind Narbonne High School, President Avenue is safe and secure. The most amazing part of this school is the teachers. These teacers are dedicated, extremely involved and caring. They are unified and all go above and beyond. It is so wonderful to see my son's teachers help him to succeed and master the California State Standards. One other component I like about President Avenue is their writing program. Many teachers use a program they've studied from Columbia University in New York. The after school program is FREE. President Avenue has a student orchestra program, chorus and music classes, and a great arts program. I am so happy with this school.

We've lived in the area for nearly 3 summers and this is my son's first year attending President. Because of the negative things I've read on this paticular site, I refused to send my son here and continued driving to Long Beach everyday to take him to and from school. This fall I enrolled him with much apprehension...not only because I wasn't pleased with the test scores, but also because it's behind Narbonne. Although it took him a little while to get used to an LAUSD school (which is far different from LBUSD), I love his teacher! He has excelled and his report cards have continued to be high scoring. The administrators are fantastic! He also attends the after school program with the Boys & Girls Club and he loves it! Where else can you get free care, help with homework, a snack and playtime? I love it!!

President Ave is a great school. My daughter has been attending Pres. Ave. since 3rd grade. The school offers 2 different after school programs, orchestra, PTA is very involved, and the staff and faculty are amazing. Though it sits behind the local high school it is still relatively safe, the older kids stay to their side of the street with little to no interference, with the younger kids. Very happy with the expeirence my daughter has received here and hoping for the even more when she attendes middle school. With the education she has gotten at President Ave. I know she is ready.

I had read some negative reviews about this school and was really nervous registering my son here. I went to the office and spoke with the staff regarding my concerns and they were really open with me and answered all of my questions. My son absolutely loves the school and I can see such a change in him from his previous school. He is more otoging and learning so much. The teachers are awesome!!!

I have been a parent at President Avenue for many, many years. I have had seven children pass through and I have one to go. The leadership in this school has disappointed me in the past two years. Kids get away with things that would have never been allowed in the past. Parents come in and treat teaches and staff very rude, therefore the students seem to think they can do the same. I would love the see the school discipline in the manner which would be effective to all students, not just some. On the other hand, I think the teachers at President Avenue are exceptional.

Both of my children love President. I appreciate the diversity of the staff, students, and the school's ability to find ways for the students to be recognized for their efforts throughout the year, not just academically, but creatively. They have made great strides, good friends, and show a confidence that comes from knowing they are cared about by Dr. Annor, his awesome staff, and great teachers throughout the school.

I have two children that started President Avenue this year. I am very impressed overall with this school. The office staff have all been so helpful. When I bring my children to school in the morning, I feel confident that they will be safe and well cared for. My children both like their school and their teachers, so that gives me some piece of mind. I was very hesitant on enrolling them there at first, but I am now glad that I did.

I have an eight year old daughter that attends President. I truly field she is getting a quality education and it is reflected in her test scores. She also has the opportunity to interact with students of many different races and backgrounds. The parents are involved and friendly. The literacy coach, principal, yard staff, parent volunteers, teachers and students work together to make a great educational environment.

President avenue offers a great preschool program for children with special needs. The classroom size is very small (as small as 5 kids total), so the students get more individual time especially because there is a teacher's assistant to help the children with activities, projects, and a lot of other things the kids may need help with. I am very happy with the experience, knowledge, and educational background the preschool teacher has. I also have learned so much from her.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
