I love the teachers! They are great. My oldest daughter has went to lankershim since kinder and this year is her last year there for she is in 6th grade. As for the principle, I wish he would have left a long time ago. He has cut back on so much in the last couple of years. No field trips, no after school programs,no 6th grade science camp, my big thing is no graduation for the 6th graders. Do I recomend this school yes, why well because the teachers are the best!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

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.
