Every week I read to first and second graders at this school, The teachers I have observed are hard working and dedicated. The school provides a wonderful environment for kids to learn and grow.


Posted October 9, 2013

The staff at Crescent Heights is very dedicated to the nurturing and success of the students. The increasing score on their overall report card reflects their interest and dedication. Keep up the good work Crescent Heights!

I Love this school. My child started from Kinder and is currently in fifth grade. I have been through a few principles. However Mr.Lowery has and continue to be the Best. Our principle has taken this school in a very positive direction. Parent involvement is up and kids are learning. It goes back to a very old sane It takes a village to raise a child Great Job teacher & Staff

I have been at Crescent Heights since 2005 my son culminated from there and now I have my 2 daughters that attend Crescent Heights. one is in kindergarten and the other is in 5th grade. I must say that ever since Mr. Lowry is the Principal, things have changed so much to make it an excellent school. Mr Lowry is very approachable and knows mostly all the kids by name and not to mention the parents.My kids and I feel very welcomed at this school. Academically my kids are doing very good thanks to the excellent teachers they have. Ms. Simms is amazing at first she can be very intimidating but once you get to know her she is a sweetheart, my daughter cried for about 3 weeks when she first started kindergarten and now she loves her teacher, she even wants to invite her over to our home,and not to mention Ms. Anderson she is an amazing teacher, my daughter feels so comfortable in her class and loves her so much. My daughter has learn so much with this teachers that she is advanced in math. I am so thankful to have found this school. I would recommend this school to anyone :)

I am soo impressed with Ms. Jones who teaches Kindergarten.She has such patience with her students.My son loves her and looks forward to school everyday.She is soft spoken but yet firm.I think its very important that my son get started on a positive note with a teacher who shows that school is a place where he can feel confident in learning .I think she has to offer what parents would want for their little ones.

Im very fortunate to have my kids attend Crescent Heights El. My daughter has excelled and I credit the teacher(Ms Owens,Mr.Linley and now Ms.Dunlap) their positive attitude and skill are the reason i believe my daughter is advanced.I have also notice the principal bring positive changes to the school.I've seen how involved and dedicated he is to the school which leads me to believe the future is bright for Crescent Heights. With all do respect STOP bashing our teachers instead meet with them and find a way to better our kids academically. It STARTS at home

Crescent Heights is continuing to help our children thrive academically, socially and personally. My kids and I have been a part of the Crescent Heights family for 4 years now and we continue to see a strong team of passionate teachers, dedicated parents and committed staff on campus. Every year my kids are challenged and encouraged to excel. The teachers welcome parent involvement and encourage open dialog. The new Principal is on a positive mission to continue inspiring students and teachers. He has also introduced a Morning Laps program that the children absolutely love! It motivates parents, students and teachers to arrive early and exercise together before the morning bell. This year is off to another great start! Ps... Everyone (should) know that the first day of school is always a little hectic. My kids had both Kinder teachers and they are excellent! I talk with them often and I'm amazed at how they help mold those little tots into future scholars!

I am shocked and very disappointed to find parents belittling teachers. I am not saying that things are perfect. However have you done your part as a parent? I have you offer you support? Are did you get on this site and complain. Crescent Height is really a good school. My child is currently in the 5th grade and son has attended Crescent height from kindergarten to present. What I have found is it continues to take a village to raise a child. I feel that the Principal, Teacher, Staff and Parent are very committed to making our children successful. Mrs.Jones, Mrs.Blanco, Mrs. Lee & Mrs. Proctor are excellent Teachers. I have had the pleasure of working with all of them and they all strive to give our children a good education. Before judging a book by it cover. Join in and help. Again I am a proud parent of a child that attends Crescent Height SJM.

Today was the first day of school and I am not pleased. My daughter is in kindergarten and both teachers need to retire. Last year there was a third class with an amazing teacher full of warmth and energy and a desire to reach every child. School is supposed to be fun and welcoming and you will not get that here in kindergarten. The new principal seems overwhelmed and I hope he can bring the school around. Getting fresh blood and energy in kindergarten will be a great start. I am looking for private schools right now.

I understand your concerns, but Mrs. Banks needs to go. I don't care about your experience but I care about mine. Mrs. Banks is a space out teacher that doesn't need to be there. Doesn't smile, holler and yell at kids and just a disgrace to the school. The school is going down competely away.It needs some help.

After reading the comments bashing the 3rd grade teachers, I was very shocked. My child had Ms.Dunlap for 3years and I never experienced any of those problems. I thought she Was excellent. I was able to communicate with her through notes and conferences without a problem. That parent should have expressed their concerns in another way instead of bashing the teachers. Ms. Banks used music in class to motivate students and it also helped keep them focusssed. My son had her for first grade and she was also an excellent teacher. All teachers have various teaching styles and parents need to be open and receptive to that. When parents have concerns, they should address the teachers right away.

i am shocked to find parents berating teachers on this web site. as a parent of 3 children, they have had different styles and types of teachers (mrs.banks being one) and as a parent i learn to work with their teachers to allow my children to become better people rather than put up un-helpfull babble on this web site. keep up the good work mrs.banks

Third grade was the worse grade for my son thus far. His teacher, Mrs. Dunlap missed numerous days of instruction causing the students to be taught by many different substitute teachers during the course of the 2010-2011 school year. At first, I was understanding with the numerous absences however these absences seemed to grow more and more during the course of the school year. I couldn t even schedule a parent/teacher conference timely due to her absences and unavailability. She never stayed after class once classes were dismissed. I never expressed a main concern with the teacher or the principle. Then, I receive my sons 2011 STAR results where he scored basic (below the state target for all students) in English Language. How can this be? Especially with Crescent Heights being an English Language/Social Justice Magnet School?

The teachers are dedicated and creative. Last school year, the students and staff achieved an 802 API. Having taught for over 10 years; I think this is especially remarkable for a Title I school. I just started teaching at Crescent Heights this year and I am amazed at the environment the staff has created to nurture and teach our children (as well as welcoming and supporting me). Teachers seriously embrace that this is a Language Arts & Social Justice magnet school. The kids get the standards --and just as important, we learn about being good humans, tap into our caring, and stand for the best of what we can be. My students know I'm not perfect, but I am working hard to make this a great year for them.

We love the fact that we have a neighborhood school that cares! Who wants to pay for private when you don't have to. The sense of community is priceless.

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 different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
