Bushnell Way has great teachers. Mr. Paiz, the former principal did an amazing job at communicating with the parents. He knew all children by name and greeted them almost every morning. Certain things have changed since he left, but I noticed that my child is being challenged more in academics now. Teachers really care here. The school isn't perfect but many involved parents try to give a helping hand to make it better. My girls love their school and they feel safe here.

I believe this school has a lot of potential to become a better school, parents need to get more involved. Some of the teachers need to go to school and take some children psychology classes to learn how to treat the students with respect, and not put them down. Let not forget that these children will be adults and will be ruling the country in a very near future, so we should prepare them to become good citizens, by letting them know that they are valuable, and thy can be what ever they want to be.

It is a great school. I am a High School student now that graduated from here and it still seems like the best ever.


Posted May 19, 2006

My daughter attended the Pre-K program here. The teacher and her assistants are excellent. They really do prepare the children for Kindergarten. Not just play - but actually lessons taught. I think the principle of the school can and should try to do better - overall. There is very great potential for this school to be a better school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

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 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.
