My son attended this school a couple of years ago and now my daughter is scheduled to attend this upcoming year. The school is small, which is what I was looking for because she is attending kindergarten. They also have an afterschool program here for the children through L.A's Best which is great for working parents etc. When my son moved on to the 2nd grade he was academically prepared. It would be nice for this school enforce a uniformed dress code!
I have to agree with the other parent the principal at this school Mrs Starks haves no manners what so ever, she always wants to fix everything by saying " I'm so sorry" not to mention my sons teacher haven't showed up to work for like 3 weeks already and the class is stuck with a substitute teacher, I feel like the kids are falling behind, they hardly get any homework . Ever since Ms Monta o left the school all the ceremony's are a total disaster I feel like she was doing a way better job than the principal she had everything under control , and I have to say something about the help they have there, they really need a dress code because I don't think sagging basketball shorts is appropriate for the kids . We as parents need to do something .... ASAP
This new principal has no education what's so ever she isn't supported to her teacher nor parents thumbs down this school should become a charter school I can't believe the district choose this un respectful principal juana starks sad to say figueroa st school should stayed w prek n kinder garden ..
