This is a good school for Spanish-speaking families. We struggled for acceptance here. The vice principle is hard to understand because his cent is so thick. Sorry that we don't speak Spanish. I never thought that my child's school experience would be adversely affected by this fact.

I love this school. The children are supportive of each other and really express the NO BULLIES ALLOWED that I like to see. My son is beginning to read and I think that's just amazing. The API scores are great and I love to see my son blossoming. My son is happy and he enjoys his classmates. We have really connected with the staff, the kids, parents and the community that Allesandro has created. On the other side, my son is bored with homework. Not good. I've asked the teacher for more challenging work and she definitely mixed it up. I think that any school can be a GREAT school with parent involvement but at Allesandro, I don't feel like I have to. We are involved and work on homework together, but I feel that this is sort of home.

This is my daughter's second year at Alessandro Elementary (she started in their pre-k program), and I have to say that the school has gone far above my expectations! The teachers are fantastic and the curriculum is top notch! Even in preschool, my daughter was challenged on a daily basis and because of this, she was reading (and reading well) just a few months into the program. The teachers really push every kid to reach their full potential and think for themselves. I have been so pleased with the teachers' well rounded approach to teaching and their tireless commitment to the children. Also, the principle (Mr. Andrews) is the most lovely, considerate, sincere, friendly and helpful principle I have ever met ! He welcomes everyone with open arms and a great big smile.He is truly the backbone of the school. And last but not least, all the great folks that work in the office have happily worked with me and answered any questions that I've had very quickly and competently. It's always a pleasure going to the front office! Alessandro Elementary is a fantastic school.

my child has been attending allesandro since pre school. we started to have problems when he reached kindergarten, the teacher was always late due to some meeting she had every tuesday, which resulted in parents being late for work. The school feels the need to make the more advance students dumb it down for the ones that are having trouble, once i expressed if she could give my child something more challenging she refused. If your child is not Lation then good luck, my son is mixed and always comes up with the short end. The office staff has the WORSE attitudes i have ever seen. I was once told my child would be a drop out because of his absences. (my child is top of his class) The staff is terrible and they judge you on the color of your skin.

This is the first year my child attends school in the state preschool program and so far I am very pleased with Allesandro, the teachers are wonderful, very informative about things we as parents can do to help our children adjust to school. I am very pleased and thankful because I want the best school possible for my child to attend.

Allesandro is a wonderful school. As a former parent, I was impressed with the dedication of the teachers, staff and school prinicipal, Mr. Andrews. The curriculum is rigorous and the school environment warm, friendly and inviting.

Like in many schools there is good and bad. The principle is great I'm told, I have not been able to get an appointment with him yet (3years in this school 2years trying). The new assistant-principal Ms.Wood is condescending. The teachers or ok there is some upper grade teachers that really try to get new programs that are really good for the students. The newer teachers need to learn from the more experience once, but it goes both ways some new teachers are more in tone with the students. But as for this school what I have notes is that the teachers with more experiences seem to know what to do with difficult students. As a whole the school is a 3. As my experience with Parent involvement or inquiring about my child, I was given the runaround form the Office.

Wonderful welcoming kindergarten class room. Art program is outstanding, not so sure about the academics.

Allesandro is a very active, friendly and welcoming environment. They also have good test scores, especially in English. Among all local elementary schools, I think Allesandro is probably the best place for a kid to learn and grow.

I have two children currently enrolled in Allesandro. Allesandro is a wonderful school has great activities for the kids my children truly enjoy going to school there.

As a former student and parent of students that attend Allesandro I am impresses by the academic standards that the teacher holds the student to. I feel that the teachers go beyond to cover every single material or subject necessary to have their students succeed.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
