Wonderful staff, all 3 ladies in the office are very helpful. I don't know what's going on with the principal rightnow, in the past 6 months there have been about 4 principals. Teachers are very good. Eventhough you can tell which ones just go to do their job and leave. When I pick up my kids at 6 pm there are a couple of teachers there, still. My kids stay in the after school program E.Y.S and they love it. The lady in charge is very helpful. My children where in LA'S Best first, but I moved them because they didn't like it and they wouldn't have time to finish their homework. Now they done home with their hw done, and their grades haved improved. They are also involved in sports and talent shows, which keeps my kids off the streets and away from electronic devices. The EYS supervisor is really good with the students, and very talkative with the parents, I've never had a problem with her. Over all this school is good, but the best part is the after school program EYS.
This school has excellent, experienced, caring teachers who know each child is far more than a test score, and who routinely go above and beyond the call of duty to help children learn and to help them cope with life's challenges. We respect our students, their families and their cultural heritage, including their home languages.
Principal is very helpful and care about the kids. He knows the kids he bumped into during recess/lunch and he is there for the kids all the time. His office is open for parents to discuss things at all times. Most of the teachers there are helping the kids to succeed. The Resource Specialist is especially hard working in helping the kids read and there had been many kids not able to recite the alphabet and started reading fluently at a first grade level in two months!
