The principal Ms Simms is NOT fare my son is a honor roll and highest reader and perfect attendance and she would NOT excuse him for a family funeral I had to go to the district she has taken away awards the children received when Ms Morales was here we need her (ms Morales back and Socorro in the office is RUDE and MEAN to the children and parents there is a lot of BULLIEING by teachers and staff BUT Ms Reynolds and Ms Billings are WONDERFUL TEACHER we need more like them god bless these 2 teachers which the district would HELP us
My son is a 6th grade student there and he is forever being BULLIED by a 6thgrade teacher and the school does NOTHING about it I will be taking it to the DISTRICT hope I get better luck and support. on the other hand Ms Billings 3rd grade teacher is thee BEST teacher your child could ever have my lil son has her and i am so BLESSED with her.
This is an outstanding school with a very dedicated and hardworking group of teachers and administration. The majority of the teachers have been at this school for ten or more years. They know and respect the community. The area the school is located in is economically depressed with most students from homes of great poverty and little to no education. But the teachers and administration at this school work beyond the norm to get the students up to speed. Lankershim is a beacon of hope in a very dismal city.
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!
