I am a black parent of a child who was attending Crenshaw H.S. This is an under performing school that needs to be shut down. The inner city need vouchers. They need to shut down this school for failing students in both math and English. People, we need to wake up...we are and should not be victims of our own government institutions!!!!!
Hello, I graduated from Crenshaw in 1989. My wife graduated from Crenshaw in 1985. My son is currently a senior at Crenshaw and he has attended the school all of his high school years. Crenshaw is one of the greatest hidden secrets in Los Angeles if you want your child to attend college. My son will attend UC Riverside after graduation of high school and I will not have to pay a dime. As a parent, I had to send my son to outside SAT prep classes. I understood the entire system before I decided to have my son to attend the school. He will graduate in the top 5% of his class. Schools and organizations are throwing scholarship money at him. Have a strategy before you attend a school like Crenshaw and you can be very successful in your attempt to getting your child into on eof the top 100 colleges or universities in the nation. Don't expect the teachers to do all of the work. Hold your child accountable and you make sure tht you do your part as a parent. research your options and work with the principal and staff at Crenshaw that knows about the secrets. They will assist you if you seek and ask the right questions.
I attended Crenshaw (Class of 1984). I, like Larry Elder, am proof positive your kid can get a quality education at Crenshaw. I am an executive at one of the largest health insurance provider in the nation. MV Woodland Hills, CA
The education, better still the lack of education at Crenshaw is atrocious. I have been tracking this school for the past 7 years monitoring their academic progress, and during this time Crenshaw their students have failed to meet the state required academic performance. When asked why this is happening, Crenshaw immediately point to their gifted student program. What about the other students -- the average students? Are they not as deserving of a good education? The best academic years of Crenshaw were the years when the now Patrice Ruchen, Jazz Musician and former baseball great, Daryl Strawberry. What is the solution? Crenshaw should be bid out students should heavily tested and counseled for academic and occupational training as to their abilities to earn a living after graduation. Parents should be mandated to participate in the testing and counseling and the recommendation of the counselor.
I think that Crenshaw High is not all that bad. The staff are working there hardest to gte the students in shape. Crenshaw high is a great shool. Only if the students stay focus, and not into alot of trouble... So Crenshaw High is a great and what makes it great the hard work they do for the students.So like a everyday announcement ...GGGOOOO COUGARS....LOL
