My child started Kindergarten in August 2012 in the Spanish/English Dual Language Program at Charles H Kim El and she LOVES her school! Ms. Ochoa is an wonderful teacher and has inspired my child to become a life-long learner! My child loves learning new reading and math skills in her classroom, visiting the computer lab or beautiful library. The school holds high academic standards for the kids. The Spanish/English Dual Language Program is excellent. My child has learned so much in reading, writing and speaking Spanish,(and we are an English speaking family at home). Principal Kehrley does an excellent job leading the school and is always available to answer parent questions or concerns. The office staff is warm, welcoming and helpful. The school is wonderfully culturally diverse, as are my child's new school friends. The school participates in Inner City Arts and YOLA. Charles Kim Elementary is a true gem in L.A.
I love working at this school. The staff is positive and a pleasure to work with. The leadership is the best, and most effective, I've worked with after teaching for LAUSD for 13 years.
My child loves this school, the teachers and his class mates! Ever since he started kinder and now at 1st grade his appetite for books has been extraordinary, eager to to read and figure out problems or stories ,and goes and on, the teachers at Charles H Kim are doing a tremendous jwork with our children attending Charles H Kim, inspiring and enabling them to reach their maximum potential. As a parents we love the dual language Spanish, Korean immersion, as many research has proven, is a program that benefits our children in a positive way. I want to give thanks to Principal Kehrley, for giving us a great tour of the school and being so gracious and kind in explaining us what Charles H Kim was all about, and also to teacher Ms A. Kim for inspiring and building his foundation, and his current teacher Ms. Lee for bringing out the best he has in him and at the same time keeping things fun! gk
My child has begun Kinder in this school. Although my first selection was Cahuenga Elementary School, I must admit that, this school academically is very strict and teaches students self discipline. I home schooled my child for Pre-K and I'm glad that I taught him a lot. This school does not baby sit kids. My son comes home with a stack of homework ( and work sheets that were done during class time) and as far as I can recall, not even in 5th grade I had that much homework. The good old days were kids from Kinder will carry an empty backpack and sing silly songs are long gone. So far, I'm very pleased. His teacher Mr. Corea communicates with us the parents, he is very loving and gentle with the kids and carries a sense of humor.

Charles H. Kim is an excellent school beginning with an excellent leader, Dr. Sandra Kim. My children look forward to going to school and all the staff constantly encourage students to be all that they can be. I appreciate their after school programs and hope that they continue to score high on the API.
The principal and teachers work hard to make students 'Happy High Achievers.' Under the principal's outstanding and effective leadership teachers provide outstanding education. My son's CST score increased dramatically in 3rd grade. He had almost perfect scores for both math and language arts. School also provides extracurricular activities such as dancing, field trip, etc. School has many parent volunteers that help with safety valet parking, copying, etc. It's a wonderful school.
Charles H Kim Elementary is a very good, organized and clean school, most of all, it has human factor and good values. I won't regret enrolling my kids in this school.
Excellent School! All teachers, staff and administrators are very involved and dedicated to helping students acheive and succeed!
Very high achieving, welcoming school where all students can be successful! From office staff, to teachers, to the principal, it's the best school in the District, maybe in the entire nation!
