I just saw the CST scores for 2013. Keep up the good work and press ahead, Roadrunners!
My sister and I went to this school for k-12 (but that was quite some time ago, since I am now 28 and my sister is 24). WE LOVED our time there and we both turned out great! I now have a doctorate degree from USC and my sister has a BA/Masters from UCLA. I recall that our parent-teacher conferences were always very productive and meaningful. This is primarily because our the teachers cared so much and always provided detailed and thoughtful feedback to my parents. My teaches, to name a few were ... 1st grade - Ms. McLaren (my favorite teacher to this day) 2nd grade - Ms. Wozniak (spelling?, also wonderful!!!) I have since moved out of the area to be closer to family. However, if I still lived in the area my 1st choice in public schools would be Culver City Unified (because of the high school). Charnock Rd elementary is great and I would certainly send my children to this school. I am just not sure about the highschool in this district.
I love this school. The teachers are very dedicated and both my sons are thriving at Charnock.
I'm sure that the Charnock Road Elementary School located in good place, it is a good school with good teachers and good students.
My daughters attended Charnock Road for elementary school. They had such a wonderful experience. The teachers and staff are warm, patient and nurturing. Coming in as new students, they felt very welcomed and cared for. To this day, they talk about how nice everyone was, including the children. We have had the most positive experience. Keep up the great work, Charnock!
I have visited this school as a speaker/volunteer and must say I have always been impressed with the dedication of the teachers. They truly are committed to and care about their students.
I give Charnock Road school a 4 star my son has been here since 2004 kinder and the teachers and staff were wonderful. His 3rd grade teacher brought back school friendly and made him like school all over again. Dispite the negativity, Charnock did GREAT justice to my son for my son.
I love this school. I enrolled my child there from private school into the 4rth grade, and the difference between private school and Charnock are HUGE. Charnock REALLY helped my child with math, even more so than his old school. Thanks for doing a great job!
This is a great school with a great staff. My kids attended Charnock and to this day they have not forgotten about their favorite teacher Anita Wozniak. She is so loved by our 3 kids and has done such a wonderful job, I am amazed at how much they have learned in such a short time. Keep up the great work Charnock, I wish there were more schools of your caliber.
I absolutely love working at Charnock Road. The staff works really hard to meet all the needs of the students, create a warm and welcoming environment, and consistently communicates with parents. The teachers work really hard to keep all the students motivated and challenge them daily. I am very proud to be a part of the Charnock Family!
I have had trouble with the teachers at this school. I have gone to the principal and she has tried to help..but to some degree her hands are tied with the red tape that comes along with the LA school district. Overall, this has been the worst school that my children have attended. Both my children have had trouble at this school.
My daughter is autistic, she studied in the special class till June 2008.All her teachers Ms Alfon, Ms Monesia, Ms Felecia and the speech therapist were great. I am so thankful to them for teaching her speaking, reading writing, behaving, eating and everything. The school principal and administration were however not as cooperative. we miss the school and wish my daughter always get such professional, kind and devoted teachers.
I love Charnock because of the great kids, the great parents and the excellent teachers!
Great school my son loves it here and that is all that matters. we moved him from Beethoven elementary to Charnock and he went from hating to go to school to loving it. this school focuses on the children and the education. the teachers are commuted and enjoy their work. A fantastic school in my opinion.
Well Iam reading these reviews and Iam very sad, yet not very surprice about the reviews... I have a child that is in second rade now, have been a student since kinder. I have to say thios school was not my first choice, but having said that my child has been with very outstanding teachers, Mrs Mc Laren and now her second grade teacher are great... I do belive that more parents need to try to get involved more!!! It is unfair to blame teachers, office staff, yard staff etc unless you are involved.. iF WE TRY OUR BEST TO GET IN THE CLASSROOM. And Help we can make alot of change.. in the end the teachers are great, caring and kids get alot from them... support them first...
I gave it 3 stars because most of the teachers are very good. Tthe principa however l is NOT. She does not listen to the parents concerns and does not have your childs best interest in mind . The office staff is XTREMLY unfriendly I think the test results show what kind of leadership this school has
This school was OK The yard supervisors are the worst. They yell at everybody even if they are a new student or a little child.They make us throw our food away even if we never started eating let alone, our leftovers. They are mean selfish and need to show some respect to the students.
If you are going to put your child in this school, think twice. Most of the teachers are very good, but the principal is NOT. She does not listen to the parents concerns and does not have your childs best interest in mind. She scoffs and is indignant to any concerns you might have. The schoolyard supervisor yell at the kids all the time and the office staff is very unfriendly and should be working in an corrections facility instead. I had to take my child out of this school.
If English is your second language this is the school for you, teachers aides barely speak English. If English is your first language find a local magnet. I had to remove my child from here.
My son graduated from Charnock Road last year and attended this school since Kindergarden and loved it! I also have a daughter who is in the first grade and has attended this school since P-K. She also loves it. This is a very good school and our family is pleased to have our children attend this school each day. The teachers are fantastic!
