My son has improved exponentially since he started in Kindergarten last year. He takes his lessons very seriously and he's very eager to do his homefun when we get home. Dr. S, the teachers and staff all work together in keeping this school perform at its best. There's a lot of opportunities for parent involvement in school activities and fund-raising. We are so lucky and blessed to have our son enrolled at this school.

My daughter has been in this school for four years already even thought some people think Gabriella C.S. is really hard and strict my daughter really enjoys to be in this school and she is happy with her teachers as well with her daily routine. The only thing I can suggest to other people is to get information from the office at GCS and if you have a chance to switch your kid (s) to this school just do it. Don't think twice about it, you won regret it. You'll see why GCS is one of the best schools.

My School is great because I witnessed the progress of each student and the commitment of the teachers and administrators to provide the best education. I feel proud every time somebody that works in the education field know I work for Gabriella approached me and give me very good complements of our student behavior and academic.

Wow, GCS is not just a school, it's a family environment. Parent involvement and loving staff is what makes this place so special. The school supports parents and allows us the opportunity to voice our thoughts. The curriculum is great and they really Taylor to each child's needs.

Gabriella is a unique school because is the only school that has dance classes every day. Dance helps students to increase their performance in classes. Also, student feel safe at school because of the great teacher, principal and every staff.

My first daughter started in Gabriella Charter School back in 2009 in 1st.Grade and the school has zero bullying tolerance, VERY STRICT REGIMEN IN HOMEWORK,SCHOOL UNIFORM, AND AN EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION SYSTEM BETWEEN PARENTS AND TEACHERS. When ever MY daughter has told me she has had an issue with a classmate my answer is just an email away either with the teacher or to the principal. I get weekly test results that I must sign in order to return then to school and a daily by week detailed homework assignments.The GABRIELLA CHARTER SCHOOL IS NOT JUST ABOUT DANCING..IT ALSO HAS 894 API and is for parents that have time for their kids not for slackers! I LOVE THE FACT THAT WE HELP ALL THE GCS KIDS KNOWS ME AS SOON AS THEY SEE ME..The Gabriella Charter School is a small COMMUNITY..I NEVER WENT TO LOGAN I COME FROM THE DOWNTOWN AREA, AND I KNOW PARENT THAT COME LA PUENTE, EL SERENO AND BELL GARDENS NOT JUST ECHO PARK AREA! Some kids have been in private schools and now they attend Gabriella Charter School...HONESTLY IF GCS MOVES TO ANYWHERE IN CALIFORNIA I FOLLOW IS WOTH IT!

I am happy that my daughters both attend GCS. I would recommend this school to other parents. Teachers are dedicated and the administration supportive. Administrators, Teachers, Students and Parents work together to give our children the best education possible.

Cost, Uniforms, Safety, Learning Environment, and Teachers are some of the things we look at when considering enrolling our children to a school. Ultimately, we look for a school where our children will be happy. As a Gabriella parent, since 2005 when the school initiated, I can say that my children are always happy to go to school. Can you blame them? Honestly, they have the best of the best. Their staff is top notch and quick to asses and resolve anything hindering the academic advancement of their students. Let me not forget the dancing! The discipline and focus from dancing and how it trickles over to the classroom is genius! Can't say enough good things about Gabriella Charter School and I'm proud to say I'm a Gabriella Parent.

Excellence comes trough dedication! We have a son at Gabriella for 7 years now and he is always had the extra support from the teachers and they offer Individualized Education Program (IEP) and make sure the kids are on task the teachers even call you, email you set up a meeting if your kid needs extra help or they let you know how well they are doing. Gabriella offers a special menu for the kids lunch and promotes healthy eating and even accommodates your kid's especial diet. At Gabriella everybody knows your kid and your name and now our daughter started kinder garden and loves it too.. For more info visit www.gabriellacharterschool.org

I don't know why people are saying they lovet this school. I pulled my 2 kids out. They were having way to many issues and assistance needed was not given. Life is not all about dancing and having fun. Gabriella needs to focus on academics. There really is not difference between the Logan kids and Gabriella's becasue the majority came from Logan. Very disappointed. I know of other parents that also pulled their kids out this year.

My daughter attended 5th grade last year, having won a rare spot in the lottery. This chance application turned out to be a lucky stroke for our entire family. The faculty and staff - including the dance professionals who provide a daily hour of dance instruction - are singularly dedicated, informed by the generosity of the Gabriella Axelrad Foundation. GCS is located on the campus of Logan Elementary, and the contrast between the Logan kids and the GCS kids is readily apparent. We experienced a couple of staff changes in the middle of the year, but the transitions were handled smoothly. The highlight of the year is the final dance performance, and deservedly so. There is genuine talent in some of the performances and in much of the original choreography. But I was even more moved by how the school pulled together in support of a family whose father passed suddenly, and how the school held a massive garage sale to raise funds for the 5th grade sleepaway camp in Temescal Canyon. My daughter loved her experience. She blossomed as a student, and her gifts as a dancer have matured. If only GCS went up to high school (it's expanding to the 8th grade in 2011-12).

My daughter is just finishing up her Kindergarten year at Gabriella and loves it. It is academically rigorous but still fun and creative. She especially loves the dance, art and music classes. The classes are small enough that she really considers everyone in class to be a friend. The few interpersonal issues that came up during the year were immediately and thoughtfully dealt with by her teacher. She was reading by half way through the year and now she writes little books for us that she puts around the house for us to read. She really loves her teacher and the teacher is very committed to all the students. The staff and faculty have been, without exception, great and we've also really enjoyed getting to know the other parents. We feel so lucky to have found Gabriella and are so grateful that it goes through 8th grade!!!!

My 3 daughters are currently attending Gabriella Charter School. I love the way all the teachers try to incorporate and see learning as a fun thing. I also love strong leadership that is demonstrated at the school by the principal, teachers, and staff. As a result, my daughters are taking in that leadership and I am positive that they will have a wonderful future. I especially love all the different programs they have like dance, art , and music. It helps my children express themselves in way that is positive and unbelievable. Thank you GCS!!!

My son began kindergarten at Gabriella this past September and we are thrilled with the school. His teacher is so enthusiastic and dedicated to the students. My son has a kick in his step when he enters the school, clearly happy to be there. The school is academically rigorous, but the teaching is at such a high level that students are not overwhelmed and seem to develop a love for learning. The administration and staff are also so genuinely committed to the students - it's pretty amazing. The only negative is the physical appearance of the school, but the administration and parents are working to make it more beautiful and green.

This is my daughter's first year at the school and we really like it. She has excelled academically and has an opportunity that most schools don't offer and that is a strong arts program. The school lacks diversity but the staff and owner are great and I love the differentiated instruction. The school could use some more field trips and activities. We are concerned about being at a new location and hope that the school will keep all the tihings that we love about it. I enjoy the high expectations that the school sets for the students. Highly recommended.

This is our first year at this school. It has been a wonderful experience. My son, a very active and imaginative boy has thrived. I was originally worried about the homework, but he has learned to do it and loves the achievement of learning his 'words', spelling and reading. I sometimes find his teacher a little uptight about rules, but that's probably my issue more than hers. a note on homework, they do assign it over the holiday's which is something I hate and find completely unnecessary. The bad: We love the commonwealth campus, but due to many reasons, next year the school is going to share a campus with logan elementary. This will allow them to expand to 8th grade, which is nice. But, we are all worried about integrating the campus and making it as nice as the one we are leaving.

My husband and I love this school and my daughter does also, which makes her excited about going to school everyday! Her teacher has already shown that she gives individual attention/assesments. The first week of school, my daughter was given homework that was at her level, then week two more homework was assigned to her because of her educational experience. The dance/art programs are enjoyed tremendously by my daughter, and as parents we are over joyed to have the responsibility to volunteer.

This is a wonderful school, my five year old has become more confident, focus and discipline, he already reads, adds, subtract and make good choices, that means they have excellent teachers plus the art program they have is wonderful (dance, music and paint) I also feel welcome any time that I want to enter the school, and I think that we as parents can work together in benefit of our kids. I love to be part of this family

For a rather new charter school, Gabriella has a long way to go. I'm not happy with the Principal's or Vice Principal's leadership. The academic programs can definitely be better. I see areas that can use improvements. The school provides a variety of extracurricular except for sports. The level of parent involvement is high but I still feel a lot of parents are alienated because of the cultural difference. I see why I've always sacrificed to keep my children in private school and after 2 yrs of friction with this school, I'm seriously thinking of making this my child's last year.
