Lemon Grove Academy for the Sciences & Humanities shows what can happen when an entire community gets behind its school district to improve academics and physical plant. The Academy's upward trajectory to academic excellence results from this joint effort, plus, a brilliant principal, great parents, a gorgeous new library and a greater sense of shared purpose. In just one year test scores have risen and enrollment is booming. I rate the Academy four stars because the fifth should always be just up ahead so that we keep on striving.
I moved my child from another middle school and in the few weeks of school I can definitely see the amazing improvement on his attitude towards school and life. The staff is incredibly well prepared. They have a beautiful new library that is well used by the the students and the the community. My child is taking honors classes and its loving it. The PE program, the band, medical school, performing arts, science, robotics, etc make this an A+ school.
Excellent education for our children. The rating does not indicate the degree of great education this school provides our children. The teachers are highly prepared and professional, the principal is fantastic, and the children are just a delight. This school is an example to follow!!!
Amazing leadership at this school on the part of this forward-thinking principal!
We live in Lemon Grove about 3 years. My two daughters in this school both of them like it and happy, they attented pre. school to 1st. grade. They have nice, great principal and teachers. We're going to miss the school a lot too bad due to housing problem we have to move to mira mesa, so my two kids have to go to another school.
Our son has completed his first year of school at Golden Avenue and all our expectations have been surpassed. It is clear that the teachers, led by Principal Oser, strive to put the student's best interests first, while balancing those with the Fed and state mandated curriculum. The school's emphasis on reading, diversity, peacebuilding, and environmental stewardship are as valuable as the standard academic fare. I look forward to my son's growth at Golden Avenue.
My daughter and son go to this now great school. The principal is wonderful, well prepared and always available. He makes the world of difference for our community. Thank you all at Golden Avenue for the re-birth of a school that is a safe heaven for learning and security for our children
My daughter goes to this school and she is doing very well, abc's and 123's, math, social skills and evrything else she needs to be a bright and smart little woman.
The school is soring to great heights as the new principal and the staff have worked as a team to change the culture of the school. I applaud their continuous efforts in making this school a school where all children cna be successful. Extremely well organized staff that is prepared to meet the needs of all children. Thank you, Mr. Oser for believing in our children.
My daughter's both attended the ths school in 2005-2006 and had a great experience. The teachers were very good and kept the children accountable for their work and actions. Also, the principal worked very hard to keep the children engaged (even made the new for kissing a pig). We were always able to find the principal infront of the school after classes and the teachers walked students to the front gate.
The negative atmosphere from the past is gone. Recently, with the new principal, the climate is positive. The students are happy, academically engaged and feel safe. Parent involvement is very responsive and very high. Parent volunteer hours have surpass our expectation. PTA membership past our goal the first week of school. Many programs have been added, continued, and encouraged- tutoring for reading, math, intermural sports at lunchtime, science night, and multicultural fair.
