Cheremoya is a small charming school with dedicated teachers and a great staff. the kids are amazing too! It is a great place to work!

This is a very cozy, intimate school, where the teachers and principal make an enormous effort to teach the children solid basics and give them a secure, loving environment. Very friendly faculty - very friendly children. Monthly award programs for attendance, citizenship and scholarship gives the children something to work for, and a sense of accomplishment when they achieve it.

As a parent I would like to see more races involved in activities. The people who are mostly participating in school activities are the Hispanics. On the upside, parent invovlment has gone up compared with the past years. For me, it's a great school because it is small and the kids feel safe. They feel like it's a family. I would like to see more parents involved to volenteer to help the teachers, the kids, and the school in general.

This school is full of old-fashioned, lazy teachers who are comfortable with the grade they teach and do not want to try new things. I think it will close soon. There are not enough students. Many parents want something better for their kids so they are looking at other schools and moving away. It will be for the best that this school is taken over by some smart and creative teachers and made into a charter school.

Very active Principal and staff. There is a true feeling of love for the children. The teachers and staff want what is best for the children. it is a clean, safe, happy school. The upper grades seem to be better then the younger. small class sizes too. the down side...no sports, play yard is black top. no real art classes or gym class. this is due to budget cuts and not enough funding. The teachers really want what is best for the students. I think the lack of parental involvement is due to the language barrier as it is mainly Hispanic.

It seems that this school really has it together. It is traditional single track, has a decent API score 745, I believe. It was even featured in the Wall Street Journal not too long ago. It mentioned that the parents were very involved. There are also plenty of extracurricular activities.

This is a school located in a neighborhood that is constantly in a state of flux. The teachers are very good but have to follow the districts requirements. There was no daycare, only an afterschool playground. Many parents do not participate in the PTA, I believe because it is subtly discouraged by the school. There are really no extracurricular activities; they leave that up to a local charity group. On the postivie side, everyone is well behaved.

After a long hard struggle, perhaps this school has a chance to turn around and become a central part of it's community.

This school has one of the best atmospheres for children. The teachers and kids are great. Everybody feels so welcomed. It's one of those schools where everybody knows each other, parents, student's, teachers. They try really hard to keep not only the parents and children involved, but they always invite the community to come join as well. I'm really proud to be involved with Cheremoya Ave. Elementary.

For those parent's researching for a school for their children, you could not make a better chioce than Cheremoya Avenue, we all [want] the best for the children of our future. As, a former student, I'm proud to see all that Cheremoya has done throughout all these years. They have grown, but that warmth I grew in hasn't changed a bit. You know the first years of school are the most important ones and there couldn't be a better choice than Cheremoya Elementary. It's been 10 years now that I left that school, and I thank Cheremoya for they were the start of my school years that I will never forget. Cheremoya will always have a big place in my heart.

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.
