This is a dream of a job. Our school has a commitment to art, and progressive instructional strategies. It has an understanding of collective achievement, and the importance of community. Our students are supported by loving, involved, and demanding parents. Our teachers, for the most part, are open to collaboration and the sharing of ideas so necessary for cutting-edge instruction. Across the board, each part of this whole goes above and beyond the call of duty, each with a commitment to education, students, and each other.

This is in response to the comment about CSPA, fundraising, and parent input. First, CSPA is a non-profit. It is the parent group of the school. The principal does not collect or handle the money after a fundraiser. The money goes to the CSPA treasurer. In regards to where the CSPA money goes and how it is spent, yes, the principal may give her opinion. The parents have a say and vote as to where the CSPA money goes. This is done at Town Hall meetings. This is also where parents come and see/hear about how fundraising is going and where money is going.

we moved our kids here from another charter school. what a relief to be in a school where the teachers have so much time in the classroom. The program is super! Focus is on Kids , rather than parents issues. we could not be happier

I am a parent at Community Magnet, and my child is doing very well there, but I become suspicious when I see a bunch of rave reviews posted within a day or two on this page. Aren't people allowed to express themselves on this site? No school is perfect. Isn't this supposed to be a place where parents can get honest (though anonymous) opinions about schools they are interested in?

Our son is halfway through his 2nd year here at Community Magnet and we are so lucky that he got into the school. The teachers and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and have encouraged our son to learn and participate in events at schools. He looks forward to going to school since he first went to a kindergarten orientation during the summer. The CSPA, the parents' group, has helped my wife and I feel welcome at the school and part of this great community.

What a wonderful place! This is the kind of school I wish I'd attended. The only way Community could be better is if it went through 12th grad! Submitted by a parent.

More than half way through our second year at CMCS and it does not disappoint. The teachers are creative and nurturing while providing an outstanding educational foundation. The principal and staff are excellent- obviously having the knowledge and expertise to effectively run this incredible school. I feel so blessed, not only that my child is able to attend, but that I am a proud and present part of this community as well.

CMCS is a National Blue Ribbon School whose API score this year was up 18 points to 930! Administration, faculty and parents all share credit for this. CSPA is a non-profit parent fundraising organization that works with Principal Pam Marton to provide the best experience possible for CMCS students, despite LAUSD s huge budget shortfall. CSPA provides: Spanish classes as part of our extensive International Baccalaureate (IB) program. Drama. A psychologist. Teacher s Assistants. A computer aide. Materials, books, field trips, and scholarships to camps appropriate to the curriculum. And an award-winning Mentoring Program, CATCH, to ensure no child slips through the cracks. CMCS CSPA encourages all parents to come to once-a-month Town Hall meetings where issues are discussed such as how monies raised should be used. At these meetings, everyone who s taken the time to attend is heard, and issues are then put to a vote. Democracy at its finest!

Elementary schools don't get any better than Community Magnet. It is a true team effort between parents, principal, staff and the kids. Never have I been so excited to be part of such an amazing place. Great test scores, fantastic teachers, the coolest parents and an exceptional principal who cares for her school with her whole heart,she truly is a treasure--this is what makes our kids shine so brightly. The curriculum is rigorous, the teachers are so connected to the students and the love that surrounds this school makes it unbeatable. The fundraising is an important component for our school and I wouldn't change this for anything because it's amazing how we do so much with so little. You feel like your voice is heard and that you as a parent can make an impact on the direction of your child's education. A true democracy.

CMCS is just a wonderful place for children. We were warmly welcomed from the start by Carla, the Magnet Coordinator. She really went out of her way to make our family feel welcome...answering all of my questions with patience and understanding. Now that I am an active member of the school, I can clearly see that all of Carla and Pam presented about the school during tour days is true. When I am walking about campus I can feel the positive energy of the students, staff, and families. There seems to be an ongoing conversation at school...asking what we...not just teachers or the principal...but parents and students can do to keep this wonderful school going and not have to loose any of the programs that makes the school special. My family loves this school and we are grateful for the education our children receive. I couldn't ask for anything more.

The parents group CSPA is a front that is a nonprofit. The parents have the power to RAISE the money but no input in how it is spent. The principal ALWAYS decides what the money will be spent on and has the final word. Parents wishes are only heard but not considered. Parents are asked for money for every field trip the children go on. There is a music program with a 'donation' attached. If you don't give the donation you will be hounded every week to no avail. What good is the parent fund raising if they cannot choose how the money is spent? After each fund raising event, the principal collects the money instead of CSPA's treasurer. What kind of a parent association is this when the principal controls the money? This nonprofit needs to be evaluated and there is zero transparency!!

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.
