Gratts Learning Academy For Young Scholars (Glays) 3

As a parent of a child at this school, I feel that the school is improving every year. Most teachers have been there for 5 or more years, and do their best with what they have, given that the community is mostly immigrant. I feel that they truly care for a positive learning environment for the children, yet establish firm boundaries. The side staff, such as RSP teacher, librarian, and school psychologist, are advocates for the children of the school. The principal is strict, yet is able to speak to you in a non-judgmental and open manner. I have observed that she has closed the gates in order to prevent children leaving the after-school program for their own safety, which is great. An improvement can be for the office staff to improve prompt service, as staff has been observed to not observe when a parent walks in, to the point where the parent has to ask for assistance.

Gratts is one of L.A.'s premier schools. You will not find better teaching moral and commitment than at Gratts, and their principal has been a real leader in supporting the teachers and parents. Love them!

My child is in Kindergarten and I will say that she has an excellent teacher. I cannot say the same for most of the other faculty. I personally think that if given the opportunity to improve, this school would excel beyond its expectations. The area in which it is located has a lot to do with the school's under-development. Although there are many programs in place to help the parents understand the fundamentals of the teaching programs, the lack of language impedes the parents from becoming involved thus leaving their children with the lack of inspiration to learn. I would like to see more extracurricular activities applied as well as more teacher, student, parent involvement.

My daughter studies in 3rd grade. This school striing hard to improve with what ever limited resources.Though there is a sincere efforts from the staff to improve, still the school has a long way to go. There are specific efforts to provide child with all round development. After school program is also faily popular among students. There are frequent parent - teacher meeting which child performance is discussed. Overall I rate this school as mediocore but trying hard to better each passing year.

My daughter had a great teacher, but I can't say much for the rest of the school. They had poor extracurricular activities. The overall scores for the school is very low. I think it has to do with the area the school is in also. I would suggest to any parent to have their child go to another school if they can.

Music program here is very limited, as principal noted due to budget cuts. They used to have an excellent program but now one music teacher and does maybe four classes a week.
