I went to this school from 1st grade to 5th. I was completely let down. The teachers had no interest in helping, they just wanted to get the job done. about 3 of my teachers paid no attention to what was going on, and the 2 others have retired. Please don't send your child here. A lot of bullying happens, and the principle does not help what so ever. If I had a child I would prefer homeschooling her than sending her to this miserable place. Honest truth. please take my advise.

I have a son in kinder that is in special needs for autism. Teacher decided to cut his hair. My son had spiral curly hair about ear length. Never got any notification from the teacher that there was an issue with his hair. The first time it happened I got a phone call at work and a zip lock bag with his hair in it. Had a talk with the teacher that after noon which I thought was clear that we don't like his hair short.Then the second time it happened 2 months later with out my consent I spoke to the principal. It was amazing to see how dismissive the administration was of the situation. Totally sided with the teach as if they had done us a favor and did not even get an apology out of the whole situation. Reported it to the school district and the only thing they did was say it would not happen again. The school district called the school first before hearing what we as parents had to say. I feel very disrespected and how are you suppost to trust people like that with your child. I have 2 other children at different LBUSD schools and Never had an issue with any one. Parents be a voice for your children.

We love Gompers! Both my boys have excellent teachers in 4th grade. The administration is great, all the teachers, staff, PTA, and parents all work well together. It is a nice community that is involved together.

We are very excited to see what the rest of the school year holds for him. We love Gompers! I went here as a child and it was great then and it is even grater now. Proud to have my son attending this school and lookong foward to enrolling my daughter in 4 years :)

My husband and I are completely let down by this school. Our 2 daughters have been attending this school k-4th and this year our oldest is in the 5th and it has all gone down hill since last year. They need to be more strict on the kids behavior towards one another. Our oldest has been going through a bullying issue and it has been a very serious black on white race issue. We are extremely let down by the way this issue has been handled and agree that if this was the other way around it would have been taken more seriously.

Nice school, teachers seem engaged in the students best interest; less impressed with the leadership, but overall good quality school in Lakewood.

The teachers at Gompers are wonderful. They work very hard at to inspire the students. Gompers has a great PTA. They also have some of the best parents who volunteer in the classrooms to help out the teachers. I'm proud of our school and all they are trying to do for our kids.

Gompers middle school serves good studies and allows a student, like myself, to appreciate the help most teachers offer. I really wouldnt know classes outside of the gate progam, only because i was in the gate program. You see a lot of the teachers at that school, along with the staff, only see gompers academic wise. Many problems happen socially. I myself didnt have much problem with friends or making them, but some students in my class did. So basically, i think that the school staff should focus on that. I didnt really like the school very much. I think the Elementary portion is very well organized in the way that parents would appreciate. As for the middle school, not so much. This school has many pivate issues to deal with. the matter should be resolved when the staff is aware. Which might not be as quik as it should be.

I am extremely disappointed with the lack of leadership, accountability, responsibility and professionalism at this school. As a parent I have expressed various concerns pertaining to my children s education and have been passed from person to person. The lack of follow through has been displayed from the Principal all the way down to the secretary. I have visited the office on numerous occasions just to be greeted by the office staff on their cell phones. It has come to the point that I dread interacting with the entire administrative staff at this school.

We feel very fortunate to have our children attend Gompers. The education they are obtaining is one of the best in the district. The leadership and guidance is also excellent.

My daughter just started kindergarden this year but went to the pre-k classes and it has been great. The teachers make the children feel welcome(her teacher even called to welcome her to the class before school started) and seem to really care about the individual child as well as the learning.

I currently have two children attending Gompers. I am so pleased with Principal Camarino's involvement with this school. My daughter is now in 5th grade and I have seen the difference in her since Mr.Camarino has been with Gompers. She continuously tells me how he visits the classrooms and plays on the play ground with the students. The teachers at Gompers are outstanding. I as a parent can now appreciate what these teachers do for our children. I have the up most respect to the teachers at Gompers. My kids have had the opportunity to attend Gate schools, but we are so satisfied with what Gompers has to offer.

My son had just finished pre-K at a Christian Preschool and finding the right Kindergarten was very important to me. I was very impressed with the school Principal, Mr. Camerino. Mr. Camerino made himself available anytime I wanted to take a tour or had questions. (I had several.) I observed his interaction with the kids several times and he treats them with respect and dignity. (A big plus in my book.) Not only is he there for the parents but he was also out on the playground with the kids on several occasions. If you are considering an Elementary School, go and talk with Mr. Camerino, see for yourself that he is a Principal with direction and he is passionate about his school.

This is a great school. The teachers, staff, and principal go above the call. I hope more people will look into this school for the future of their children.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
