This school severely lacked supervision over students. Hopefully by getting rid of vice principle, Gary Graves, things improved. But with rotten teachers such as Judith Langford, PE teacher Reedy just to name a few, the school could never be any good. With lower class students fully of ignorance that feel the need to pick on or tease others for refusing to dress like them or speak with horrific grammar (its probably a race thing), its apparent that proper supervision is needed to keep those kind in t heir place!

Although I was only here my 6th grade year I saw many things that did not please me. I was a pretty smart student who came from a school that was near the center of Long Beach and I was being made fun of a lot by the kids who came from nearby schools such as Bret Hart.I was exposed to many inapropiate things there

i was a student here, love it, great teachers, great instalations, i sure learned alot, if a student doesnt like school, he is not going to learn even if you send him to the best school of the planet. A student learns when his education began well at home. Give a good example first and then judge.

Yes, I agree the staff is very unprofessional and they dont care about the students. It is a bad enviorment and it is not a good school, who ever said it is need to think again. One of the worse schools in Long Beach. I would never recommend anyone to this school. I would rather home school my child before I would send them to Lindberg. It's that bad!! I had to get my child out ASAP this school dont even deserve a star rating.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.
