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.
this is my daughter 2nd year in this school. she like it here she said everybody is nice the teacher and faculty. there doing a good job. as a parent if my child happy and learn good not only the learning how to read and write also the manner is very important to me. thank you so much to the teacher and faculty. to giving this children a bright start on there life....
You know, my daughter's dad is in the military and she's been to 3 schools. She's been here for only the year 2010-2011 and she's shown improvement in her grades academically. She's in room 9 Brownlie. I recommend this school alot to parents and kids.
Very good school!!! Love the school and teachers, clean and safe. My daughter is in the pre-k program and is the best. I am glad I was able to put my daughter in this school I always hear good comments on this school.
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.
I love President ave school all 8 of my children have gone here and the experience for all has been a great one.
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!!!
my daughter was assigned to a special need class. She received speech theraphy with Ms. Wain for two years i really loved the way and emthusiusm given to children with alots of energy. I wish my daughter was offered to stay in this school if all the teachers and staff are as awsome as Ms. Waim thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm the parent of three children all three of my children attend president ave. And they all started in the preschool program. A lot of people don't know about the preschool, it is excellent program it prepare my children for kindergarten and also gave me parenting tools to help my children.
Hi, I was new to school, and of course very worry about my daughter been, but i now i leave my daughter with no worry it all! all teachers are nice and security is great. I was really impress of how my daughter learn a lot of stuff, in less them a month she wrote her name and last mane, numbers and ABC's really love this school!! as a parent I give this school A+A+A+
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.
Great school,my daughter just started late 2006 and now were into 2007, she is soo happy..Ive seen her improve on on all her activities,thanks to her awesome teacher..she couldnt of been happier..she loves that school! and I give it two thumbs up!
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.
The activities at president elementary school is great. I love it they really get involve with the student every teacher theire treat the kids like if they where theirs it is amazing to me and as far as the parent getting involve believe me you will want to it is so much going on you will be more over whelm then the student and teacher put together their togetherness, willing the particapation is far up most. They get involve with the student one on one they have any and everything you can ask for in a school. I love them. Thank you president elementary school you are the best.
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.
