This little Westside gem has excellent, caring teachers who nurture all the children in a warm. loving environment. The children are given awards on their many accomplishments each week in the morning assemblies. The staff is truly interested in each child's progress. A safe environment and a caring atmosphere....that's Brockton!

Brockton is a very small school. Parents choose to take their kids out and put them in a bigger school, but they don't realize that smaller could be better. Most of the teachers are fantastic. They care about the kids, and do their best to teach the students . Parents really have a duty to prepare the kids before they enter the class so that the teachers can really teach. I've had two kids already graduate from brockton and they have been able to adjust at their middle and high schools-thanks to the wonderful and caring teachers. So far, I am very happy with the progress of my last child. All of the teachers, and principal are very interested in the education of their students. They have various programs to motivate the students. They also reward them with certificates, medals, and trophies. I haven't seen too many schools give so much to their students. Give Brockton an opportunity to teach your kids. They have excellent, and caring teachers.

This school is a hidden gem on the Westside! It has been my privilege to teach here for the last 8 years. The staff truly cares and is involved with all student of the students, and at every opportunity we celebrate the successes of our students. We have an Academic Challenge Program in the Spring led by our Principal that is outstanding, a Spelling Bee from K-5, an outstanding G.A.T.E program to name a few. Do not hesitate to come and visit and see all the wonderful things we accomplish.

This school is not only amazing it is safe, fun, and definently a gold mine. I am so impressed by the amazing teachers that my children have had and have. The preschool is outstanding especially because of the amazing teachers. The rooms are filled with such warmth and fun. Kindergarden teachers are as well amazing and very kind. First grade as well. Every year that my children are there is just gets better and better. I could never even think about going to another school. U want good education, a safe environment, teachers that really care about our children then go to Brockton. You will never regret it. It's small and wonderful.

Brockton is truly a small school with a true neighborhood-type atmosphere. All of the students are known by all of the adults and are dealt with as individuals. Students, staff, parents and community are friendly to each other and are concerned about the well fair and well-being of the students. We celebrate all of our success and encourage to keep striving forward. This is a great place to work and a great place to learn.

Brockton has a family feel to it. The staff knows each child and works as a team to support them. The school offers many extracurricular programs, such as an award winning drill team, music program (Rock the Classroom), Nutrition program (nutrition network). Bringing technology to the staff and students has been an important focus.

My daughter is in the Pre-K program at Brockton and loves everyday there. Each week, students learn a new theme and activities and learning revolve around that theme. She comes home everyday humming a new song or telling me what she learned. Parent involvement and volunteering are strongly encouraged. The teachers are patient, kind and also firm in disciplining and correcting kids. I feel my daughter is really being well prepared for Kindergarten. The great teachers at Brockton have given her a new love of learning.

Student achievements are celebrated every Monday morning in the auditorium before the school week even begins. Children and parents are applauded in front of the entire school. Most schools do this about once a year, but at Brockton student this happens about once a week! Brockton Avenue Elementary School is by far the best school that I have ever been a part of. This includes my 4 years of experience as a teacher with the Los Angeles Unified School District, and as a student at both public and private schools. The Principal, Ms. Lattimore and the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Bridges, along with the staff and literacy/math coaches work together to create a safe, smart, effective educational program that literally places every single student at the school in an environment where they can be successful at learning and growing. There is no other school around that even comes close to providing students and families the individual attention and care that the students at Brockton receive, not even the private schools that charge $25,000 a year- I am not kidding. The teachers at Brockton are highly qualified, well-educated, multi-talented, hard working, dedicated and willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that Brockton students are able to develop the academic skills, social skills, and life skills that will help them througout their entire lives. The paraprofessionals (like Ms. Rachael Grate) are amazing and effectively provide students with additional educational support, reinforcement and supervision throughout the school year. I would recommend Brockton Elementary School to any parent that was looking for the very best place for their student to learn! In addition to a quality education program, Brockton offers many extracurricular activites such as reading/ homework/ tutoring clubs, an award winning drill team, an extraordinary music program that includes a school-wide holiday musical festival (like the one Ms. Engle put on this school year), a first-class nutrition program, and a quality physical education program that trains students to be physically fit by the time they graduate. Ms. Feldman and Ms. Walker's coaching helped 100% of the 5th grade students to pass the rigorous 5th grade physcial fitness test this past year! Brockton also provides students with an after-school Youth Services sports program that supervises students all the way until 6pm! Maybe the best part of Brockton is that it invites parents to be a part of their child's education and parents are encouraged to come to school to visit! I would recommend Brockton to all parents who wanted the best education for their child.

Brockton Elementary is a small community based school. The teachers are 100% committed to providing the best quality education despite the limited resources. They strive for excellence and provide a safe classroom environment for the students. Because Brockton is a small school, the staff is able to know each and every child.

The teachers at Brockton are excellent. They are dedicated and nurturing to the students. My daughter has loved her time at Brockton. The teachers go above and beyond their duties, especially considering they have minimal resources to do so with. More parent involvement would really help this school.

This school has a lot of potential. The teachers are great. My kids feel safe and happy.They are learning the same if not more than their friends at the other local schools. They also have a great Drill Team!

This school has proven to be even more of a disappointment than had originally anticipated. Without much luck of using the permit system, I reluctantly placed my child at this school. By the third day, this school and it's staff had proven to be completely below acceptable standards. There is no communication between the teachers and the principal. The teachers seem to be so overwhelmed by the english language barrier with the students that they overlook any academic challenge for the students that can handle it. Also, safety is a big issue. There is much room for improvement, but I doubt that the principal as the motivation or the power to change the overall quality of this school.
