Belvedere MS is in dire need of reconstitution! Everyone at that school needs to reapply for their position. Unfortunately, the staff is engaged in adult agendas and politics, which leave teaching and the students behind. The students and the community deserve more caring, responsible educators. It's disturbing when teachers express that they are tired of hearing that it's always about the kids! The teachers have held this school hostage and they are failing our students!

I began my teaching career at Belvedere 10 years ago. I am so disappointed that things have not changed. 1) Parents should call Sacramento and speak to staff members in the STAR (Standardized Testing and Reporting) office. They should demand that unannounced visits be made to Belvedere during STAR administration. If talking is going on during the STAR test, the testing must be invalidated. That will make LAUSD stop the talking during STAR at Belvedere. I suggest creating a phase out, phase school transformation at Belvedere. Create a new school, that is on a different floor or section of the campus. Bring in a new grade in the new school in the fall, as you eliminate enrolling for that same grade grade in the old Belvedere. The new school will be held accountable to improve behavior and academics and school culture Parents would be part of the new school's stakeholder group, for the academic, behavior, and cultural progress of their children. Make the new school an IB or pre AP school. This same process could be repeated in other schools in the district. It would create a better school. Students and the community deserve a change at Belvedere.

I attended this school from 1986-1989. You cant judge a school by how the students act. I myself was an honor student all three years while I attended Belvedere. I have the best memories from this school. Students act the way they are being taught at home. So if the kids are bad, in no way does that mean the school is bad. At the end, it comes down to the student. How much does she/he want to go ahead in life.

I would hate to go back to this school, even though I am in the 8 grade now. I went to this school in grade 7 last year and kids ditch everywhere in the school, they smoke weed in the bathrooms, they have fights almost everyday, and their actions in every way are inappropriate. When I went to this school, the only teachers that cared and were cool was my Honours Science teacher, My Honours History teacher, and my Advanced Art instructors. The kids in Honours weren't even supposed to be there. I overhead many times that they cheated on the CST or just guessed. The students don't do their work and they are entirely disrespectful. It really is ghetto. The cheer-leading squad are like bullies because they talk about everyone and spread rumours. I would only visit this school just to visit the three teachers I stated. Other than that, the school is highly unwelcoming and the environment is completely out of hand. I don't recommend this school for anyone. There are also way too many crews and gangs in this school. I mean, this school doesn't even deserve a rating. Now that should tell parents something right there.

This school is terrible the steachers and staff let the students used profanity around them and there is a lot of adult activity in this school for 6-8. I've been at this school for 7th grade and this school is way below average. The honors classes itself, which I was in, was terrible. The students even talked so much during the CST. I left the school because of the way it is.

Im an eighth grader and i use to go to belvedere for sixth seventh and half the year of eighth. Belvedere isnt the best school, there are many children that are into crews and into some gangs, and there are a lot of tagging and a lot of fights and all of it is just drama, and i did not want to deal with all this drama anymore so i asked my parents if they could transfer me to a different school, and so now i go to a school called ynez in monterey park. I think this new school called ynez is more diciplined then belvedere. There are no fights or crews at this school because i say that 90% of the students that go to this school are mostly chinese and they pay a lot more attention then id say from the kids at belvedere.

Im a seventh grader from Belvedere Middle School Belvedere Middle School isnt the best.Inside of this school i say as a former student the school is full of undisiplined Children.The school could look good from the outside but the restrooms and hallways are full of tagging from not one or two but many crews.The reason i attend this school are for reasons that Belvedere is closest to my home but i have i asked my parents to transfrer me to stevenson middle school.For reasons they catch a student in campus with Illegel drugs,tagging or fighting this school is full of drama and bad infunces. Belvedere Middle Shcool isnt the best and only choice. :]

Belvedere MS wasn't the greatest of schools but, if one tried hard to do their best then they would most probably get the help from their teachers and overcome most obsticles. Most teachers there are friendly and would support their students that gave it their all, all the way

I agree with Jasmine Enriquez. I think that the school is a great school. A good student learns anywhere regardless of what all other students are saying or doing but the deans do only think about themselves and nobody else!

There is a discipline problem at belvedere middle school....In my opinion. I have seen students talk back to teachers. When asked to stop many students 'book it'...Run away. The dean can not possibly handle all the misbehaviour...I'm glad my son is graduating this year.

I think teachers have lots of love and high expectations for all students. I really appreciate the parent workshops and outreach for the community.

Unfortunately, all is fun and games and little is done to promote academic learning and good ethics at the school. Students lack discipline. Safety is a growing concern as gang mentality affects both boys and girls.

Belvedere is a wonderful school....But most of the people there are problem starters...The principal is hilarious and fun to spent time with...But the deens arent cool....They dont understand anybody ...They just think whats right for them to do and not right for us...The best part of the shcool is their music class! But their sports arent so great.. - Jasmine enriquez

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.
