Check out the schools near West LA, Brentwood and the Palisades. Almost all of them have a 9 or 10. You guys need to think outside the box. Even though I have not been there, I know by reviews that this is the last school you would want to go to.

Official News : API will be suspended this year and next year by decision of the California State Board of Education - schools must have local measures instead.

Im a parent at Academia Semillas. I have a daughter in kindergarten and I love the Nauhtl and Spanish teachings. I hope they bring back Chinese. It pushes parents to be involved in your children's life by having many meetings and emphasizing the importance of encouragement at home. I recommend this school to every body. I know LACOE should be proud of having this school in their district.

At Semilla s my children are instructed and encouraged to become what an International Baccalaureate Learner is. The IB student profile is a risk taker, communicator, well balanced, caring, reflective, and open minded. They are truly building them to be leaders.The teachers have been directed by an administration that values tradition and works collectively. Semilla s was able to speed through the process of becoming an IB school because the school was already structured in a circular (collaborative) way. In addition to this, the students education is supplemented with Indigenous circular values, teachings, and language in Nahuatl which is a large American Native language that is spoken traditionally throughout North America. The children at Semillas also receive reflective teachings from other native nations. My children come home excited about Nahuatl and teachings from the Hopi, Zuni, Navajo, Tongva, Shoshoni, Chumash, Maya, Zapoteca, Perepucha, Tarahumara, Inca, and more. My children are receiving an incomparable education. I receive a rubric at the start of each unit, along with it the focus inquiry, and the expected final project that needs to to be accomplish.

My daughter attended ASDP last year as a kindergarten student. She absolutely loved it and misses it! She learned tons of stuff at Semillas and genuinely enjoyed going to school. Unfortunately it was too far to keep taking her there. : (

It's true the school is far from teaching students anything about leadership. The school is overcrowded, and not well organized. The teachers are great, staff is unprofessional, those who think they are leaders are far from it, and the school is a mess. I believed in the school, and its intentions to continue to teach dual languages, our culture, and roots. I trusted this school with my children, but they failed miserably in promoting independent thinking. The school is test driven. One more thing, the school does have a lice problem. The person who wrote "an uneducated idiotic bigot" is a staff from Semillas, and so this is what you have to deal with. We are simply giving our opinions from a parents perspective, and should be respected without being attacked. My daughter was always getting sent home with lice notices. She was infected many time, now in her new school she hasn't had a problem.

Great school, if your looking for the traditional LAUSD school this isn't your choice. This is not a test driven school and encourages kids to be independent thinkers.

Worst School EVER! Beware of poor leadership. No follow up by any administrator. We are truly disappointed with the quality of education provided by this school.
