I went to this school a couple years ago and frankly, it's quite terrible! Teachers call it "after school tutoring" but it's more like forced detention. I hope administrators realize that keeping students for over an hour needs a 24-hour prior notification to their parents? Also, the school is practically run by the parents.

I am a garden volunteer who helped out on a project at Berendo for the Mayor's Day of Service. I was so impressed with the families and the administration. Hundreds of students and their family members came out to serve their community. Principal Bilovsky has assembled an exemplary staff that works above and beyond to create a safe, beautiful and enriching environment for their students and the broader community. They are heros, and Berendo is an amazing school.

Im a current student at this school and its a great school! It used to be non-academic and test scores were way too low! All of that has changed now and teachers are really showing a lot of dedication nowadays. Especially in the 8th grade, where teachers even make you show up before school, after school, nutruion, lunch, and make you go to saturday school and intersession. I have honors in all my classes and in my algebra class, the head of the math department goes to visit us daily and sometimes even teaches our whole period because he's so impressed with our work and we are always ahead in our work compared to normal classes. When the normal algebra class is studying slopes and linear graphs/equations, we're, on the other hand, studying quadratic equations and functions or polynomials and factoring.

I was a proud Alumni at this school. The problem in this schoolis that the students see it as a social gathering not a place of education. I you have a good child that wants to study then there should be no problem. But, the education is not that demanding. It took me a really long time to adjust to Hamilton Humaities Magnet. (which is a great school and it is worth all the work) So, maybe try sending your child somewhere else.

As a former teacher at this school I can say that the quality of the education depends upon the administration and the dedication of the parents. There was a horrible principal who almost destroyed the school. Others have done well. Students have gone on to receive full scholarships to Ive League colleges. For the neighborhood, the school is safe and offers many activities after school. Most teachers are dedicated, but there are a few slackers. Too few parents are actually involved in their students education. Those that support their students and encourage them can benefit from a decent public school in a marginal school district.

As for the extracurricular activities is great. The teachers that teaches music art drama etc. are really dedicated to come everyday and show the students new things. But most of the teachers meet up to the standards. I'm not sure how they discipline the students are correct.

I am proud Alumni of Berendo Middle School. Although, I did not receive the best education, I am able to suceed in high school. I believe Berendo is a very poor school and most teachers are very poor. Earning A's in middle school was a practical joke, but entering high school and suceeding is very difficult for me. Berendo does not prepare students for high school. School was joke in middle school.

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.
