CMCS is a magical place. The ethnic diversity, the thorough teaching and comprehensive work that the school does provide is like no other. I am so proud. Their CATCH reading program has given children a safe environment to learn and grow.

From the Principal(Pam Marton) to the teachers, staff and the parents, the Community Magnet Charter School at 11301 Bellagio Road in Los Angeles is dedicated to ensuring a bright future for the US through serving the students who attend. These students learn humanity, collaboration, team-spirit, and leadership in addition to the academics. I love the excitement written on the kids' face every day as they go to school. Kudos to all who strive to make this happen.

We just started at Community School. After applying for 3 years. We felt like we had won the lottery. My son had been attending a highly ranked school 5 minutes from our house but we jumped at the chance to go to Community. It is warm, inviting and allows kids to learn in all types of ways. You know that every family there is there because they really want to be. It has been an incredibly easy transistion because of the warth and availability of the staff.

This is one of the best public elementary schools in Los Angeles. It's works like a private school...teacher, parents, parents friends and grandparents are all very involved. Tutoring programs, drama, music. It's wonderfully diverse community where your childs' best interest and education comes first.

I love Community Magnet Charter ES because it is definitely one of the best public schools still available in Los Angeles. It's a very diverse community, with a lot of involvement from parents, staff, administration, etc. Under our principal's excellent leadership, our very dedicated teachers do an extraordinary job and it only gets better through the years. It's small enough to keep it personal, and the campus location is amazing!!

Being a global citizen is the theme at CMCS. Our children learn from an early age how to care for the world and the people around them. This philosophy is infused in the excellent academics. The diverse population makes this school a true 'global community'. CMCS is truly a gem in the LAUSD system.

I have a 5th grade daughter and a 2nd grade son at CMCS. This is the best school I could possibly imagine my children attending. All of the teachers, the principal, and fellow parents create a tremendously rich and nurturing environment for my children to develop as students and individuals.

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.
