When my son was there, several were great. But our final straw was when we found out the teacher was a bully herself!! She failed to report our son had been electrocuted, to us or the school. Upon being reprimanded for failure to report the incident, she took it out on our son!! Due to her bullying, he still is mentally, and emotionally afflicted.
At first, Kinder was great and his teachers were amazing!! The homework became ridiculous for their ages, they were only about test scores. I felt the kids were only learning to do well for state tests. Students were overworked to look good on paper to get financial funding. School wasn't fun and our son was stressed at 8 yrs old.
It's terrible, especially when the teacher is the one doing the bullying!! Singling out students, humiliating them in front of the class, isolating them, causing damage mentally, physiologically, emotionally even years after this took place. Left in 3rd grade when we found out what she was doing to our son.
Celerity Troika outperformed every school in the area including both charters and traditional schools. After just a little research, I found celerity troika was one of the highest performing schools in LA county. Their focus on academics is unparalleled. I also appreciate their focus on the arts. The dance shows are some of he biggest highlights of the school year! The teachers, students, and admin do such incredible work empowering kids through dance. I recommend this school to any parents interested in a high quality education for their kids.
If you're a parent read comments before taking a decision on this school and its number 9.
It's a shame! Especially Mrs Solis the school director.
There are two campus, one on Colorado and the other one on Figueroa. The numbers that they show all the time is from Colorado campus. Obviously where the director keeps most of her time cuz tha's the face of Celerity Troika, forgetting the Burbank campus where there are a lot of things to fix.
5th graders kept all year round without a teacher, Mrs Solis promised to hire one, but never did, later these kids came to 6th just to be the same (without a teacher) and having a different substitute teacher every month. Imagine what those kids have learned, how they feel and how is their behavior when every month they have a different personality of their substitute teachers for two school years.
It's so sad how parents nothing can do, but taking out their kids because nobody in charge is there. The secretary better quit as the good teachers did as well. Been school director of two campus of 500 students of each one is too much for her, is obvious one is going to shrink. If not, see why there is no 7th grade for the school year 2016-2017.
This is my son's first year and I got to say I love this school . The behavior card really does help a lot my son was always getting red now as the 2nd month of school he doesn't get below green of course with the help if his teacher his behavior his improving for the best. Homework is not much . The minus one star is because there's no play equipment for the children.. the school does lack diversity but I don't mind you have to keep in mind that highland park community is mostly Mexicans :)
