Ms. Crawford-Li, who has taught Pre-K at Eagle Rock for 2013-2014 school year, is an amazing teacher who goes the extra mile! She methodically organizes a high-level instructional program and provides engaging activities, performances and field trips.. She encourages social/emotional development for all style learners and her students are thoroughly engaged while having fun and calmly following her direction. She includes the parents in routine volunteerism and corresponds daily with a cute folder & bag (the home work is meaningful and not burdensome!) She is an A+ teacher and her T.A.. compliments the program.

Eagle Rock Elementary is a good school. My daughter had a wonderful third grade teacher last year who was responsive to her learning problems and was very supportive, my son had a good 1st. grade teacher who was strict yet open minded. The after school YDP program is a good program that introduces the kids to art and music.

While there are some gifted teachers in the Gifted Magnet, there are incompetents and these bad ones are so stunningly awful that it can make you forget how good the good ones are. If you get into the program, don't think your child is going to have great opportunities.They talk a great game, but are still teaching to the test here. STAR testing is the holy gril: Magnet kids are expected to score ber high to make up for the low scores in the regular school so the administrators can look good and get promoted to some cush job on Beaudry Ave. Gifted education, which used to include lots of enrichment, is now More Math, More Homework, More Rote Learning and Less Creative Thinking. Socially, the gifted kids are marginalized as behavior problems or "weird," both by their non-gifted peers and by some of the teachers and administrators. These kids are then labeled, and dismissed, by the school. The administrators here do not seem to understand or care that the gifted children think and behave differently, and are largely intolerant toward them. The playground is utter chaos with lots agressive/violent play and bullying where no adult is present to intervene. Grade?: Fail

My daughter entered the magnet program in the fourth grade, the experience was wonderful. The fourth grade magnet teacher sincerely cares about each and every student as if they were her own. My daughter felt welcomed by the teacher even entering the program later than the rest of the students. I left my child at school each day knowing she was in good hands and learning. I can't say enough good things about the fourth grade magnet program. It was a great year and I still can go to this teacher for help, she goes above and beyond.

Eagle Elementary needs to work on the massive bullying problem. They have no supervision in the yard and those bathrooms are beyond disgusting. Teachers need to be more sympathetic and not target students they do not like. I notice that the teachers there play favoritism and do not believe that certain students are capable of the worse!!!!! Too many students for just one principal; my children will not be attending next year. Can you say private school.

This school has been wonderful and exceeded my expectations despite the reputation of largely overcrowded LAUSD schools. The principal really does care about the welfare and education of each student. He also started a valet program and occassionally you will see him out there directing students and families to safety. There are great teachers in the Gifted program that set high expectations and do their best to enrich their student's lives. My daughter is in the GATE program and it is definitely a more vigorous workload than a regular classroom, but she is learning skills that I believe will set her apart from the average student. Parents have the option to meet on a monthly basis with all the Gifted teachers to discuss progress. There is an orchestra at this school that is voluntary. This school offers an afterschool program for free provided by the county and any student can apply. The crew is run by young college age kids so most of the activities are social and homework time within your peer groups. There are music and art programs occassionally. Overall-ERE is a great school and my daughter is in a classroom with great kids.

Eagle Rock Elementary is a great school. Both of my sons (pre-k, 1st grade) love the school and their teachers. There is a strong sense of community with amazing parents.

My child loves the highly gifted magnet. It seems like there were more activities like the class musical AND more homework in the third and fourth grade class than in fifth grade. The lady who teaches third and fourth grades is excellent. She cares very much and made good projects. I thought fifth grade would be harder to prepare for middle school but I think there's less work. Sometimes I don't understand my child's homework journal. All year it seems like homework gets added or changed or moved. Also, in my opinion there is no schedule to the class. I asked "what did you do in math today" and my child says there was no math but they played hockey. The man who teaches the class seems much more relaxed. Still it is an excellent program with art and science and music. Also, the teacher reads good books in class. I wish Eagle Rock high school had highly gifted classes.

A Blue Ribbon school with a diverse socio- economic population with wonderful a motivated and innovative teaching staff. The school has an amazing Special Education program as well as GATE and two Gifted and High Achieving Magnet schools. There is a garden, Arts partnerships with local orgs and a great PTA and school Foundation. It has a big heart for and high expectations for a Title 1 school

The LAUSD website (and the Parent Handbook that was sent home with my child) outlines the district's anti-bullying policy. Both sources also provide information regarding the district's guidelines for disciplinary actions against students that violate district rules. Unfortunately, ERE does not implement the (zero-tolerance) anti-bullying policy. ERE students who break school rules are not adequately disciplined. My child has been harassed by the same student for 2 years now. I have made several reports but my concerns are overlooked. It seems ERE's main focus is Blue Ribbon status and above average test scores. I think the safety and emotional well-being of the students is not focused on enough. In speaking with other parents, their children have also been bit, kicked, spit on, verbally harassed, or worse and little or nothing is being done in the way of discipline. There are serious behavioral problems that are not being addressed. It's alarming!

My child has gone from kindergarten up too the 4th grade here at Eagle Rock. All of his teachers have been grate so far and I dont think he will have a bad one at this school. I also went to school in LAUSD many years ago and I can think of many bad teachers. Thank god for this school and all the parents who donate time and make this school what it is.......A grate place too learn!

I love Eagle Rock. I am a student and I enjoy everyday of it! The teachers have strict but a very fun way to teach! Its is always very challenging and it makes me try harder. I am going into 6th grade and I've been in Eagle Rock my whole life ! All my brother's and sisters went here too. This is all I can say!

We are very happy with ERE. My daughter is taught by two exceptional teachers that team teach. I cannot say enough about the two of them. My son's teacher is also exceptional. Both of my children are very happy at ERE and have made some nice friends. The school has many great programs and there is a lot of parent involvement which helps to make it a 'Great School.' Signed, Very happy with ERE.

I had 2 kids in the GATE program. A lot of people believe that the GATE and Magnet programs help 'raise' the test scores of the whole school. Unfortunately, it's a big school and the teaching staff runs the gamut of excellent to bad. If your child is a mediocre student, he/she will fall through the cracks. I volunteered a lot and helped with testing and have seen as many as half the kids in a class not pass their reading fluencies. Some teachers may be overwhelmed especially when they are team teaching and end up handling 2 classes. Bottom line is that this is a large school so you may want to consider the smaller schools around the neighborhood.

I'm a little shocked at the vehemence of the few negative reviews of ERE. My older daughter attended from grades 1-6 and my younger is currently a 5th grader. I can't imagine a better environment for two very different girls than Eagle Rock. I've always worked full-time, but found opportunities to remain involved other than opening a checkbook. (It's sort of amazing, how understanding employers can be) The few teachers who're 'riding the tenure train' have retired and I see a vibrant, engaged and engaging staff that mirrors the Eagle Rock community. If it's as uninspiring as some think, why are so many out-of-area students there on vouchers?

I've been very impressed with my child's teachers in the magnet program, and the creativity and knowledge they bring to the job. My son's homework is truly interesting and challenging. He enjoys school and is learning much more than at his old school. The only thing I could wish for is more emphasis on science. This new principal (second year) is very 'by the book.' She seems like she wants to control and decide everything, and I'm not sure that's a good approach in such a large school. I think it's hurting morale. The music and dance programs are great. Good PTA and parental involvement.

I am sick to death of 'Test Scores'. My son is not a robot and I would appreciate some practical hands on learning (old school) instead of carbon cut out art and busy photocopies.. Teaching to the test is creating a zombies out of our children and I would appreciate a little more creative teaching... Take the teachable moments and turn off the overhead projector...

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 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.
