I really like the school and the principal and am sorry the last reviewer felt otherwise. My son I were both accorded a great deal of respect and attention, and he learned so much at Hancock Park. I enjoyed the feeling of parent involvement and contribution at every level. My son got into the Wonderland Magnet this year, which is a Blue Ribbon (10 out of 10 as well) but I honestly don't think Hancock Park has less to offer -- in some respects since it is our neighborhood school it has more, and we still attend the homework club and after school programs there with ARC, Coach Oscar and Coach K. There is a real feeling of community and we actually rather miss that. The diversity is amazing and the teachers are wonderful. My younger son will be going to Hancock Park soon and we look forward to it.

The principal has been a nightmare for us. Totally inflexible and unwilling to do what is best for the kids. Her only concern is keeping the test scores up. She will see to the needs of families who contribute to the booster club first. The school is very by-the-book, regimented, without much in the way of adapting to a child's strengths. There are a few really good teachers ... but many are just adequate. The extremely high percentage of Korean families tend to be very insular. Our non-Korean kids had a hard time making friends or arranging play dates with them. Kids are not allowed to run on playground during recess! Seriously? After-school program is pathetic.

Our school is made of a diverse group of students. The school embraces these differences and uses them as tools to teach our children. The teachers are hard working, enthusiastic and bright. They provide our children with an enriched education while at he same time nurturing their emotional development. Through our Booster Club our children also are exposed to the arts. They study music, art, and drama. It is a wonderful school.

Hancock Park Elementary School is a great school! Why? because we have a great coalition of parents, teachers and school staff that are comitted to the kids that attend this school. The parents are amazing and involved in all aspects of the school, so that our kids get a great education. We have a very diverse population which adds to our community and provides all of us the chance to learn about one another in a positive envionment. The teachers at this school are very bright and involved with the kids and provided a great environment to learn. We also have a great athletic coach that the kids love!!!!! This is a great school and I highly recomend it 1

We are relatively new to the school but so far, I am very impressed. Our K teacher is incredibly organized, professional and on top of things. The principal also strikes me as a very hard worker who gets the job done efficiently and expediently. And the booster club is very involved which is great! For an LAUSD, I have been impressed so far!

Hancock Park Elementary is a jewel in the midst of a busy city neighborhood. This school has met or exceeded my expectations in so many ways. Foremost is the great diversity of the student population - which reflects the neighborhood. The school also has a great principal, dedicated and talented teachers, fantastic support staff, and parents who strive to provide that little something extra for the students missing at many schools (PE, art, music, etc.). Truly a great example of what works well in a public school!

This school is amazing! I work for arc After School and Enrichment Program. I have worked with many LAUSD schools and this one not only encourages students to be a part of the school community but also has a wonderful Booster/PTA Club!

Hancock Park Elementary has been our son's school for the past three years. Every year I am amazed at it's ability to improve on what I thought was great to begin with. The parent teacher involvement is enthusiastic and encouraging of a wonderful environment for our children. Everyday I see a sea of happy faces, very diverse faces, I might add. I am very proud to be a parent at this school. I do wish that state funding would STOP the cutbacks, children should not suffer the consequences of poor management.

Hancock Park Elementary is among the best schools in Los Angeles, public and private. I have one child that graduated with a top notch education, and another beginning his. We have had one amazing year after another; a gem of a neighborhood school.

My daughter is incredibly fortunate to attend this school. It's a public school but the academics are right there in line with any private school here in LA. Furthermore, the parents are very involved with the school which allows the school to offer extracurricular programs to the kids.

We could not be happier that Hancock Park Elementary is our neighborhood school. There is a wonderful sense of community here and our son has a deep sense of pride when he talks about his school. I cannot speak more highly about the principal who often works nights and weekends. She is beyond dedicated and this attitude definitely trickles down to her staff. Plus, the parents really do step up and raise a ton of money so that the students can have P.E., art, music, computer lab, library aides, field trips, etc. all the things we used to have when we were kids but the district no longer provides.

We LOVE this school! We switched to HPE from private school ... Best decision we ever made. Great education; involved parents and families; hard working administration and teachers. It is the best!

Hancock Park Elementary is such an amazing place. They offer a dynamic, rigorous program couched in what the principal calls, "the fluffy stuff" -- the fieldtrips, art enrichments, and excellent specialists who interact so playfully with the kids. There's great energy at HPE - an academic seriousness and a humane kindness, with students from all over the world. My kids love it.

Love this great neighborhood school. Super solid all around. High academics, wonderful, capable and dedicated teachers and staff, diverse student population, involved parents. Excellent math programs, nice variety of enrichment classes. Proud to be a parent at this school. No need to apply for charter or magnet schools if you are lucky enough to live within the boundaries!

This is my fisrt experience of the US elementary school system (my family came from South Korea 2 month ago). My daughter(3rd grade) loves the school! The booster club is very active, so the school has good art, music and PE teachers, runs a computer lab with great staff and afterschool library and playtime, and so on. All the staff, students and parents are very proud of being at a wonderfully performin 'public' school.

A truly diverse and unique school. Diverse in academic levels (a large GATE, special ed. and ELS population) and ethnic/cultural/economic backgrounds, yet unique because the school is so inclusive. For a school of approximately 800 students, it feels like a small school. It's a great community. Teachers are experienced and capable of teaching and challenging kids of different needs. Principal and staff care about the welfare of the students. Students love this school and are eager to learn. Parents are active in working with Principal to make this school an even better school. A real gem in the middle of the City of Los Angeles.

great school in a great neighborhood; wonderful caring, nurturing, fully engaged and supportive principal; most of the teachers are very above average, compassionate and committed; not all (or many) the parents are involved at school, but the ones who are, are fully engaged, and very energetic and enthusiastic; the school does a lot with little (public school) resources; student population is half-asian (for what that's worth)

Hancock Park Elementary is an example of a public school that works. There is a negative knee jerk reaction when anyone mentions the public system because its failures are what capture the headlines. The successes are rarely mentioned. Hancock Elementary can proudly boast a 2012 API test score of 912 out of 1000 ranking the school a 9 out of ten. What makes this school different? Besides the wonderful administration and teachers, there is a very active booster club and tremendous parent involvement in school life. Parents who are involved and care are a necessary component in the success or failure of a school and because the community is so active the school continually does well and is competitive against all other schools in California despite state wide cutbacks. With a strong curriculum of English, math, science and art it is academically as good as it gets. It is also a welcoming and nurturing environment with a diverse population from all walks of life and of different creeds and colors. (There are over 20 languages spoken among the students) This school works because the teachers care, the administration cares, and the parents care. It is hard to argue with success.

Diverse school with excellent teachers. The active booster club makes sure we keep important programs like chorus, math and computer enrichment, p.e. and good field trips. Academic environment (but not a pressure cooker) with a supportive, active principal.

We are a new family to Hancock park. My daughter loves going to school here. Her teacher is very sweet and has made the transition to school very easy on us. The parent involvement is amazing. We are very excited to be a part of this school for many years!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
