This school has amazing potential! In spite of socio economic factors that hinder parent participation the school has an API of over 790! We need however a PTA at the school and Gates school would be the ideal elementary school in Los Angeles.
My child and I love this school. This school is improving steadily. We have an amazing (new) Principal who works incredibly hard to raise morale and works with his resources. Parent participation should be better, but I believe as the school improves, more of the neighborhood parents will be more involve. Also, Mr. Avila is a great teacher- my child enjoyed being in his class. He is great and caring! Submitted by a parent
My two children attend Gates Street Dual Language Academy. Although Multnomah Elementary is their home school, we opted to enroll them at this wonderful school. I love the fact that it's a diverse academic environment. I would reccomend this program to any parent, who understands the importance of a free but rigorous bilingual program! ALL their teachers have been amazing!***** importance of being bilingual to consider this amazing, rigorous but more importantly free of charge
This school is great ,my son has been going to gates st school since kinder he is now in 3rd grade. The teachers/staff are very good with the students they put there all into teaching are students. i don"t believe this score or the bad reviews about gates. My son has done well in all of his classes.
I'm surprised to read these reviews. This is a wonderful school with dedicated teachers and administrators. It is a welcoming learning environment. Academics are a priority and all staff members are dedicated to 'getting our students ready for college!'
