A really good public school with caring teachers and a very hands on Principal in Korea town. Cahuenga has a warm, caring environment, good programs for kids like dual language program and Taekwon-do. Also this school really pushes academics and has outstanding test scores. My daughter loves this school so much that she didn't want to have any breaks.

My daughter has been attending Cahuenga Elementary since Kindergarden, she is now in third grade. She is caucasion and has been enrolled in the Korean dual language program there. I feel like she's been receiving a private school education because of it. She has truly loved each of her teachers and they have shown true love and enthusiasm towards their students. They have done an incredible job. She is reading, writing, and speaking Korean. She has been enrolled with the same students since kindergarden so they have become great friends who have really learned how to appreciate and help one another. They receive music classes, art classes, and Tae-Kwon-Do. My daughter gets so excited to ride the bus to Inner City Arts where she is taught different forms of art. Right now she is learning how to play the recorder in her music class and is thrilled. My daughter loves school. I think Cahuenga is a wonderful place to send children to receive the best education they can, not only through academics but with life skills as well. Thank you Cahuenga.

I had the best time with Cougars. The teachers and staff esp. with Ms. Katiyama's regime were the best!

We had some initial trepidation about sending our son to Cahuenga because of public-discourse stereotypes about LAUSD. While the teachers and administration have to deal with federal and state regulations that in some cases limit what they can do, we have overall been delighted with the level of personal attention and genuine care the students receive, the remarkable academic rigor, the depth and diversity of the curriculum, the integration of cultural enrichment, the good will and good faith of the parent community, and most of all the fact that in a dual-language program, bilingual fluency for all students is recognized as an asset and embraced. We are very happy and proud to be at Cahuenga Elementary! I wish the parents took more initiative, but it is not easy when both parents work, and I am myself not as active as I ought to be.

I am pleased with the academics at Cahuenga. However, I feel very unsafe sending my child there. Several kids in her class have behavior issues and their parents don't seem to want to or know how to deal with them. It's a real problem!

The previous reviews said it all! Cahuenga is just the BEST! My son also speaks, write, and read Korean thanks to Cahuenga. And we are Hispanic. Korean is his third language. I did not have to pay for special classes. It was free! Where? Only in Cahuenga Elementary School.

Being Latina, I was a bit worried my child might have trouble learning Korean. First of all, we had no idea of the culture or language, but thank's to Cahuenga we are now more educated in the culture and so are our children. It is nice to know people from different parts of the world.

My child is in the Korean dual language program and at first I was a little worried that he wouldn't perform well in English because he was learning another language, but Cahuenga proved me wrong. The teachers are the wonderful and the overall environment is great. My son is in 3rd grade now, he is in the GATE program, and he is learning Korean which is his third language. I don't think he would have been able to do that anywhere else.

Cahuenga School is a great school. I admire the way they handle their students. I really had no regrets in sending my son to them. My son's teacher is so good, Quality education is really their specialty. My son started not knowing how to read, color and write. Now, my son can qualify as a grade 2 student in some schools. I am really so grateful to Cahuenga Elementary School.

My child is on special education classes. The teachers, TAs and school administrators are very professional yet caring towards the students. I travel a distance just so my daughter can attend a school that I trust. Kudos--to the teachers at Cahuenga Elementary for caring for their students are their well being.

Cahuenga Elementary is every parent's dream! This school has the total package. Experienced and caring teachers, access to all materials the children need, great facilities and a wealth of enrichment programs. This school is also one of the top schools in LAUSD and California because of its always increasing test scores. Parent involvement is a school priority and parents are very cooperative. What's even more amazing is that the school's population is almost completely second language learners that through the school's very successful bilingual programs in spanish and korean are beating the odds and in the process proving that bilingual education, practiced correctly, can have the most positive of outcomes for the children and all parties involved.
