The principal is a joke. But some really great teacher. No working website. Some of the staff are very rude. The school could use some new leadership.

i'm a student in gompers and i think the school is good because the teachers teach you really good and they bring you up 2 grade levels because once i was basic but now i'm advanced but the thing is that there's bad kids and they mess with other student for example they steel from them also they punk on them and i know this because they stole from me and punked on me for 2 years 6th and 7th grade

I can't honestly rate Gompers now, but I can say what it used to be. I attended Gompers in 1973. Some of my teacher's teachers were still there! These teachers got to Gompers in the late 50's. Our curriculum was excellent, considering this was a LAUSD school. Crips and Bloods had issues down the street, but never at school. And yes, we got swats in the Principal's Office. I am a retired Fire Marshal, and I can honestly say, many of my promotional tests that had to do with Math or Science, I learned from Gompers, (and Locke). I was in the Band with then Mr. Pearson, Mr, Dustin, and Harris. These three produced the Gerald Albright's, Patrice Rushen's and many more musicians whose music you might enjoy today. I pray they are able to pull Gompers out of the typical spiral that affects the inner-city schools. At the end of the day, it's the student who has to want to make something of themselves. The parents, as well as the teachers are responsible for giving them the tools they need, encouragement, motivation and praise.

As a parent who was very involved in my children's education, i really want to be fair to the teachers and staff who really care about heir students' academic achievement. That being said, certain other teachers should be fired for their irresponsibility and incompetence. Also, the school doesn't do nearly enough to ensure their students' safety and dscipline those students when they need it. The bad students get away with a lot, while the good students are not encouraged nearly enough to do well in their studies. Frequently, the administration turns a blind eye to the bad students, thus allowing them to get away with whatever. I know that prayer changes things, but the bad apples are the ones making the good teachers indifferent and the good students apathetic.

I think gompers has great teachers but unfortunately the enviroment does not help I used to attend several years ago they had to much racial tention they had as we student's used to call riots with in the school. It made it uncomfortable to want to go every day and lots of my classmates felt like that but unfortunately we all had to attend here because we belonged to this district.

I think the school could and should improve 100% in it's teaching curriculum which in turn would improve student behavior resulting in a safer and more productive learning enviornment.

Gompers is improving. They are offering a lot of classes and different activities for parents and community

The school is good, but not as good as it should be. The school can definitively be improved from teaching curriculum to the student's behavior. Although, this school is improving on safety methods, such as making sure walk ins receive a visitors pass, however, it can still be improved in the way that they should require an ID as a parent, staff, external student or other. Overall, this school is pretty safe.


Posted September 7, 2007

This school is really not as bad as the people think. The fights and stuff have lessened alot and the teachers always try to help their students. I have always been an honors student there since 6th grade and have been learning alot since I started there. I have never been picked on and no, I am not the most popular person you'll met either. I have learned things at the school that I have never even thought of. The school is great and I dont have anything against it, not even most of the cafeteria food.

This school is not as bad as people say. Most of the teachers are helpful and try to teach but some just don't even try. Most of the students like to learn and want to participate in class and make class a better place to learn. The PE. classes are to crowded compared to other schools. But teachers try and get the kids active and make them want to participate. They have activities such as basketbal, soccer, football, baseball, jumprope, the usual. The school also has a drama club.

When my child came to this school, she met so many different children from different backgrounds, and each and everyone of them work harder then ever. The teachers are incredible, they get really involved with the the students and their interest. This school, since my first child started, has gotten better and better.

When my child was at gompers the school lacked just about everything- Security, activites, parent involvement... The school is so bad that they have a hard time attracting quality teachers and administration. If and when they do, they usually don't stay more than a couple of years.

Gompers Middle School has not benefitted from its bad reputation. And there is some truth to the horror stories. The kids are like kids everywhere else except they have not benefitted from parents with the proper parenting skills, caring and dynamic administrative leadership, including teachers, and staff. However, there is a new, dynamic principal (Diana Garcia)who with some of her staff, are in the process of altering and changing the school's culture from the custodians, students, to teachers and parents. Some exciting things seem in the works and it's going to take the entire community's energy, input, and work.

I am an educator here and look forward to the changes that are coming about at Gompers. We have an excellent staff and teachers that are excited and passionate about what they do. Our new principal has hit the ground running and is not scared about facing the many challenges we face.

Every year students' scores continue to increase on standardized tests. The administrators, parents, and faculty continue to strive to make it better every year. I look forward to seeing how we can improve it next year even more!

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.
