I went to Cienega Elemantary School from kinder straight Through 5th grade! I think it is a very good school although I do wish they would have made improvements to the jungle gym When i was still there becuase now the yard looks so nice compared to when I went there, but i feel glad for the kids there now! The teachers are great!

This school was so awesome, I was a part of the gifted progam and we went on lots of fun and educational field trips. I've made my way through Cienega and without the help of my supporting teachers I wouldn't have made it to where I am now, Palms Middle School, for highly gifted students. Those teachers taught me well.

Teachers and a principal named Ms.Candice McLurkin have turned around Cienega Elementary. 7 years ago, I visited Cienega elementary and it was a mess. The school was filthy, the teachers didn't care, test scores were terrible and I would not think of sending my children there. Today, LAUSD innovation department should use Cienega as a model of improving all failing schools. Supporting the needs of children and adults, motivates adults to do extra for children!

Cienega Elementary is a not a good school! For anyone who cares about their kid's future, do not put them in this school! For those who don't care, this is the school for you.

There needs to be more involment from faculty, parents and teachers. The needs of the students are not always the main priority.
