The principal Mr.Jimenez does not handle management well at all. Student are violent, he does nothing. Students bring weapons to school, he does nothing. Keeps telling parents to talk to the teachers when it's actually his responsibility. He gives a "good show" but qualitatively does nothing productive or beneficial for the students or families. No teacher or parent I know respects him as a principal, but feel like there's little they can do. Time for a change!!!

This school has under gown some amazing accomplishments since the addition of Mr. Jimenez, the new principal, and an almost entire new staff. The teachers have worked tirelessly and collaboratively to revive the school moral and to empower parents to work with them as partners to their child's education. I believe that all these changes have benefited everyone, but in particular the students of this school. :)

The old principal left in January. Since then, it's been great. Very welcoming and accomodating to parents and no more yelling! I went into the office the other day and wasn't treated like garbage. THANK GOD there's a new principal.

This school could do good, but the principal is awful, the office staff is rude The principal yells at teachers infront of parents in the morning and yells all day long. Also, the kindergarten teachers can't even speak english right, but they are supposdedly teaching children english. What a joke. Their accents are so thick, no oneder the kids can't read.

I like this school. a good staff of teachers and administrators. The test scores go up every year. My son learned a lot there in 4th and 5th grade.

52nd Street Elementary is trying very hard to meet the California Standards. We are trying to push and encourage our students to achieve at the proficient level. Being an inner city school, it does have it's challenges and disappointments. However, over the 8 years that I have been teaching there, it is only getting better. I believe this school has major potential to be an outstanding school if everyone -- staff, faculty, parents, and students) make a huge effort and really get involved.

This school is poorly organized and teaches to the lowest common denominator. There is nowhere for kids to shine as there is little extecurricular activities and the principal runs the school like a boot-camp. Stay away!
