This school is incredible! The (former) principal, Mr. R. kept it together. My 3 children were here last school year. They were accepted into the magnet program this upcoming school year. Mariposa Nabi has set the standard for all the things I look for in a school. I was surprised to find such quality in LAUSD. The teachers were all outstanding. Although I sometimes wanted to send a note to my child's kindergarten teacher to remind her that this was his first year of school and not his freshman year in college-her expectations!!! Wow! But I really am grateful to her!;-) and my other child's 2nd grade teacher, OMG. I frequently visited his classroom (unannounced) and the children were always on task, always engaged. I can not say enough wonderful things about this teacher. Watching her say goodbye to her graduating class was just overwhelming. What a remarkable teacher! Her heart is truly in teaching. The office staff were always responsive, respectful and professional. The school is clean and I believe Mr. G. knows every child's name. I hope Mr. R. can help his new school to be a great school--like Mariposa Nabi! Thank you for the wonderful memories.

My daughter goes to this school and I think that it is ok but the one thing that bothers me is that she has a perfect score on all her test and excels in every subject yet she has received satisfactory scores. Even the teacher admits that she is above average and she can't pull herself to give her an above average score. I definitely don't understand why they can't grade the way the child is performing

Mariposa-Nabi is a beautiful school. The teachers are compassionate, dedicated, and bilingual in either Korean or Spanish. There are a few who speak both. The main office staff is super friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to help out. The principal is unlike any other I've ever met. He's very approachable, hands on, and dedicated to the children. I wish there was visitor parking, but that is beyond the control of Mariposa's staff. Overall students, visitors, and parents feel safe and welcomed.

Awesome primary center! The school is very clean and beautiful. The teachers and assistants are excellent, caring and professional. They have the hands on and experience in working with young children. The special education classroom is the best structured program I have ever seen. The children blossom throughout the school year. Overall, I couldn't be a happier parent to have my son attend this school. From: Angie Mora

First off, the school is beautiful and quaint, with currently the maximum number of students being 300. Everything is brand new and clean, and the Principal, Mr. Rodriguez makes sure it stays that way. Afterschool program is free where my daughter does her homework, gets daily snacks, has playtime in the schoolyard with plenty of lush green grass area, and has does craft every day. I love the fact that the school is small and all the teachers and faculty know the students. Each classroom is well equipped with computers, and the teachers are very well qualified with with credentials; only thing may be that most of the teachers are new so which means they may lack in one area, which is experience, but that will come with time. My child will be graduating and going to gifted magnet school, Wonderland, while my 2nd child will be entering here for kindergarten.

The only thing I think it needs is someone to guide the traffic at San Marino St. Sometime cars don't stop for kids to cross the street. Sometimes they are driving so careless it's some what difficult to cross street.
