Audubon Middle School. This school has made tremendous improvements over the past four years! The test scores improved from 531 API to 733 API. John Burroughs scored 731 API. Right here in Leimert Park, in our own community is a college preparatory, LAUSD middle school. The teachers are excellent and the Principal is great. The staff is caring and knows the Common Core Curriculum. As a parent I went to sit in on classes and to visit some activities. Two of my children have graduated from the Gifted Magnet. Come check it out. I highly recommend the "New Audubon MS"!
DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!! i went here for my 7th grade year and now i have to go back for my 8th grade year. so this is a bad school and im in the magnet program. the students are disrespectful to the teacher. there is a fight every other week. the food here is really nasty. and my brother is in the regular part and the students locked the teacher out the class room and threw a chair at her. i remember in my first semester my 7th/8th grade class threw crayons, scissors, rulers, and a dictionary at our sub. all of the good teachers that care about us left to teach kids who are more respectful. so never come to this school unless it's your last option.
I graduated from Audubon in 2011. I was apart of the magnet program. The school is great, and the teachers are nice and willing to help you. I still visit these teachers and talk to the kids. I graduated from Audubon and went on to attend one of the top 100 best private schools in the country. I realized that this private school is not too much harder than Audubon. I would recommend Audubon's magnet program.
I have to disagree with the negative reviews of Audubon MS. The problems that existed years ago are nonexistent today. The campus is clean and safe. The Magnet (which my child attends), is OUTPERFORMING many, more prestigious schools. I used to attend Audubon as a child myself, and initially did not want to enroll my child, but I am pleasantly surprised with the learning environment and quality of the homework. Give this school consideration while you look for quality education for your child>
Very unhealthy and unsatisfactory environment for your developing child The biggest con of this school is it's quality of students who are obsessed with with gang mentality, ghetto culture, violence and trouble making. During my days in Audubon, fights, bullying, misbehavior, and gang signs and tagging was seen seen on a daily basis. Needless to say, your child's mental, emotional and physical well being will be at a great risk due to exposure of such a harsh environment, and will also be a great distraction towards their education. Many of the teachers and staff treat all the students as if they are all misbehaved, even if it is only a few rotten apples in the class. I would not recommend Audubon middle school for anyone's child.
Audubon has and continues to make incredible improvements. As of 2010-2011 school year, I am extremely impressed with the turn around. The school is clean, safe and the staff & Teachers are very dedicated to their students. Students are leaving their charter schools and coming back. Now, small class sizes and the elimination of ineffective teachers & staff have allowed its progress.
I came here from a charter school and this is the best school I've ever been to. Unlike its reputation I think that you should send your kids here. Its just you need to trust they wont do bad.
I went here my 8th grade year in 2008 and this is a good school. Like all schools there are some students that just go to go and dont care about doin wat their supossed to do but alot of kids are not this way. Lots of the kids here are friendly.
adudubon is a cool school i just wish that the uniform policy was out
This school has great potential just not the highly trained staff to help reach it.....There is of course the occasional teacher that is outstanding and the students love because they really care....This school has great materials and a great plan that just needs to be put into play. Some of the kids are really dedicated and some others are influence too easily and are unruly. Im a student and this will be my eight grade year here at audubon and i recomend to inroll your child here but only if they are there for the academics and are their own person. I think that being at this school has led me to want to be independent. But i dont let people get in my way.....No body interupts my studies. Because i know how to keep people in check. But as always the desicion is up to you.
Audubon is a good school i just wish they stop the uniform policy that's not good
this school was a pain. The learning is great, but the people is just what ruined it. I went there for a year, and switched to a better rated school; their learning was very far behind.
I've only been at audubon for a little bit but it's a relly nice school there are some rude kids but if you're in magnet or s.A.S most of the kids are really nice the teachers are really envolved in teaching an care about the students. The school is go[o]d it's just certain people who make it bad
Mnay people say this is a bad school and it is- kinda. Some of the students are unruly and down right obnoxious, but you will still find those who are dedicated in their studies. Some people may say that the teachers are nice and what not but there are some who just don't care. On one occasion a male teacher yelled at his students and suspended them for no good reason. You are making a good desision on entering the magnet program but beware of those teachers who like to pick on their students!
People think this school is bad but its not its the certain kids that makes bad choices. Theres no real bullying, or any thing like that. Audubon has a great dance teacher Ms.Morris and when i moved to Sacramento and went inot a dance class i really appreciated Ms. Morris because she taught alot of Vocabulary and i would get mad because i thought it was unnessary but i reliazed how nessary it was. I loved Audubon and the school can be great if the kids made better choices. Chaterra!
I graduated last year and the teachers are really wonderful. I learned alot and read many of the classics in Ms. Mays class. The field trips were great and the kids that wanted to learn really applied themselves. What we needed was more Parents checking on their kids seeing if they were taking care of business.
i am a student who will be walking the stage this year. this school is a bad school to send your children. The teachers are nice and kind but it is the kids who mess up the learning in class. In some classes kids would throw paper balls, pens, and pencils. Some teachers put effort in the teaching process well doing power points. This school has to be one of the baddest schools!!
Audubon Middle School Most Likely the worst School I Have attended in my life. I Spent 6 months in that school and hating every moment of it. Students are always at a constant fear for their safety and the only mediocre class is the magnet class but even that is not enough to make this school pass off as a decent school. I Would Personally Never Attend this school.
