Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I love La Pluma and encourage everyone who has a child starting school in the area to check it out! The principal Mrs. Pace is great and is very interested in the children's well-being. She gets to know the students and their families. The teachers and staff are great as well. There are a lot of opportunities for parents to get involved in their child's education, if they want to. They have music, art and computer classes for each classroom weekly or twice a month, which is great!

With 3 kids going through this school from age of 11, 8 & 5, I have seen the greater effort of teachers and principle trying to bring the test scores and learning curve up. They even creatively perform a play to entertain the kids how to handle incoming CST test. It is great to see other parents get involved their kids education instead just send their kids expect the teachers to do everything. La Pluma test score does average out with some kids with disadvantage, and I except their test score continue to improve.

La Pluma has excellent teachers, a caring principal and challenging academic programs. They also have a first grade teacher on staff who is one of LA County's Teacher's of the Year. Not every school can say that!

I just reenrolled my son back into this school for their amazing arts programs!!! La Pluma has the only arts programs in the district for elementary school students of all ages. The classes change a bit from session to session but; art, piano, musical theater, violin, dance, band, and choir. These classes are open to students from other schools in the district and community. My son attended this school two years ago and then I sent him to a school near the country club thinking, if the scores were better the school would be. In short, La Pluma has a lot to offer and 800 APIs
