Lomarena is a really good school. Bullying, stealing, fighting and bad language at 2:30 P.M.? (according to another review). Wow! I'm missing a lot because I sure haven't seen this nor has any other person I've spoken to at this school. From my experience as a parent here, this type of bad behavior at Lomarena would never be tolerated or accepted. It would be dealt with immediately by the playground supervisor, teacher or the principal. My child's in 5th grade and loves learning here. Whenever I feel that my child needs to be challenged more academically or request more homework, I ask the teacher to go a step further. Most teachers oblige and are really happy to do so.

We just moved to this area and this is the first time that my child is not happy with her school. There is behavioral issue at this school. The kids use extremely bad language. Bullying ...fighting and using bad language is so normal. The kids steal each other school supply.... just stop by at this school around 2:30 you will see what I am saying....

Lomarena is a great school. I am very impressed with Mr. Morrow's (Principal) quick response to the over crowded classes. He was able to add two additional classes, and my son is in one of them. The transition has been very smooth. The teachers and parents we have met so far, seem to be very involved and care deeply about our children and our school.

Lomarena has so many bright spots, it is a real blessing within the public school system. When deciding between Valencia and Lomarena for the GATE program, Lomarena was the clear choice for my child for so many reasons. The 2012 API score is impressive at 914 (2 points above Valencia), and the growth over the past 3 years from 860s to 910s is the greatest increase in the district. Test scores aside, the teachers are devoted, the curriculum rigorous, standards are set high and fair, and the environment fosters growth and development in all students. Great experience over the past 4 years!

Lomarena is truly a "hidden gem" in SVUSD. What the teachers do with the challenges they face is amazing - they have test scores that rival Valencia...even with a high population of ESL students. The teacher/parent relations are fabulous and the level of commitment to the kids from both sides (parents and teachers) is truly unparalleled in this economy in the public schools. I could not recommend this school more highly at SVUSD.

The school is very organized the principal is friendly and always visible. My daughter's teacher has many years of experience and it is evident in her teaching style!!!she gets results!! The PTA plans many wonderful programs for the school!! The school has an upbeat feel- we love our school!!!

There is a rigorous and challenging curriculum at Lomarena. In addition, there is a GATE program. My child's in a combination class (younger grade) currently which I think is beneficial. Many of the teachers at this school are highly regarded and are outstanding educators who really care about the students. There are so many active PTA and volunteers that help. There's an abundance of challenging homework for the students.

This School is great! The playground is big and my daughter loves it. The lunch for fifth graders is 12:20 which is better than any other school because the old school my daughter used to go to was 1:15pm. I absoulutly love this school!

My daughter's school experience has really been wonderful. She is blossoming under the guidance of the teachers here, and is always excited to go to school. This enthusiasm says a lot. Also, the school PTA is fabulous. They are very involved & active.

As both a former student and student teacher of Lomarena Elementary, I have nothing but positive things to say. The teachers consistently dedicate themselves to the students, and the students seem very happy with the rigorous curriculum provided by their teachers. The classrooms are beautiful as are the new library and computer lab rooms too. Lomarena provided me with such a foundation for my future, and it was at this school that I decided to dedicate my life to helping children succeed. It's my 6th year teaching now! Thanks Lomarena for a great K-6 education! Christina Garcia 2nd Grade Teacher, LAUSD

The teachers at Lomarena are outstanding! Most have been teaching there for years which says a lot I think. They have a strong PTA and parent volunteer program.

I have had the pleasure of working with the staff, administration, students and parents of Lomarena for the past three months. Rarely have I seen a group of teachers as dedicated to the student body as this group-and I have worked with many groups. The services from LAAP to RSP, Speech to OT as well as the music program (which I know my first grade class enjoys immensely) to the Art Masters program are top notch. The ladies in the front office, the health office the cafeteria and the supervisors as well as the new principal are dedicated to the wellness and education of every-single-student. The PTA is amazingly dedicated to the staff and students. As both a mom, and a teacher I would rate Lomarena as five stars! Keep up the great work! Mrs. Christine Daukas

As with all change, the passage of time is the real test. Already new and decisive principal leadership has definitely boosted staff morale as school safety and discipline has taken a priority status and teaching can be number one in the classroom. With such a diverse population from Title 1 to GATE, our school not only boasts the second highest API growth in the district but has student leadership and activity programs that no other school in the district has. From a supportive PTA, we are provided art and science programs, a school play, Field Day to name just a few. It is the goal of the PTA to continue to promote more parent involvement and more and more parents attend our PTA meetings or volunteer in our PTA sponsored activities than ever before. With this great new leadership, I can only envision Lomarena's continued pattern of excellence.

Principal has changed since the last report. The climate has radically changed, and the positive atmosphere created by the former leadership is unfortunately no longer there.

When my children did go to this school, I found it to I found that it was over crowded and very disorganized. I also found that the teachers spent more time trying control the 'out of control' students than teaching. Thus making homework the main source of learning for the children.

They do have a math team that is for the upper grades and they begin GATE around grade 3. Music I think starts in 4th grade and they do some intramural after school sports. The PTA meetings are very rarely attended though by more than a handful of dedicated parents and teachers.
