KD feels like a family. Everyone knows each other and get along so well. UCLA courses are offered on Saturdays for AP students. They also offer an amazing program during junior year called Careers Program. It offers a unique experience for students who want to peruse a career in medicine. The student gets to go to a hospital or clinic, once a week for the whole year. They assist the doctors and get to see what their future may hold for them. For senior year, the counselor is always keeping you in track, making sure everything for your higher education is prepared. The faculty also makes sure that you keep studying and pursue your dreams. Academically, it is a tough school but that is because they are preparing one for the future. I currently attend UCLA, and KD did an exquisite job preparing me. Just from my year, 2011, about 10 students are attending Ivy Leagues in the east coast, about 40 students in UCs, about 60 students attend out of the state private or state universities, and the rest attend either CSUs or CCs and then transfer. I highly recommend this high school to students that strongly want to pursue a great higher education, and want an amazing high school experience.

I guess you could say that the school is good "academic" wise but they dont really teach you things that will help you survive in the real world. Granted, they help you with college but less than half of the students at the school dont even know how to fill out a job application. Student wise, you basically have to conform to the way the students act, talk, and dress in order to fit in, if you're different in any way, shape, or form, your kid is bullied. Just because KD has a 0 tolerance for bullying its not like the students will follow through with it. This school is filled with "fake gangsters". Every guy there who says that "they bang" doesn't. This school is filled with kids who are afraid to go to their home school so they go to a magnet school and try to act "cool" or "hard" there. Its pathetic and it gets pretty stupid after a while. If your kid can ignore it props to them.

My daughter entered this school as a freshman in 2012. I am giving King Drew 3 stars because believe it or not their academics are great! But your child must have good study habits and stay disciplined about their studies because if not then they can fall behind easy. I wish they offered more free tutoring other than the state funded tutoring because in order to be eligible your child has to be failing in GPA ,not just one class. The bad thing about the school is socially and athletically they suffer. Athletics are truly extracurricular and do not count towards P.E. My daughter played varsity soccer last year and ended up with nothing but a uniform, and they were number one in their division. The school didn't even give them any award or certificate....something. She didn't even have a photo in the yearbook, not even her name was mentioned and she wasn't the only one! It was heart breaking! I do like the fact that there is a zero tolerance for fights and bullying. They will literally expel your student if they are caught in any of the two. The school is also crowded and the students don't have lockers, except for PE.

My daughter graduated from KingDrew in 2011. My daughter received a great education. She received an abundance of information regarding colleges and scholarships. There were plenty of colleges inviting the students to visit and workshops on how to fill out financial aid forms. The teachers were great and attentive. Everything on campus, for the most part, were friendly and helpful, even the students(which in some cases are more polite than their parents).

A Great Disappointment. If you value your childs future and education, please take a look at other schools. KD has a great facade, but is lacking in substance. Poor communication, poor technology, no push for excellence, just "the look" of it. Its just another LAUSD warehouse, and Im sorry I sent my child there. It is however a safe school. I'll give them that.

KIng Drew requires Ap/Honors classes and i am a current student and its strict but useful in the future. It has a lack of physical activity space but overall its a great school.
—Submitted by a student


Posted July 1, 2010

A great school contains excellent teachers who thrive to make their students achieve excellency. A principal commited on improving the school along with its students. Contains challenging academic programs that bring out the best of its student. King/Drew contains all these attributes and more. Along with its career program, AP classes, and outstanding teachers, King/Drew stands as an excellent school to send students to. Take it from a King/Drew students currently attending. Ignore the comment of the reviewer that posted on May 9, 2010. If you must criticize a school, at least use correct grammar when doing so.

I'm currently a sophomore at K/D , and I have to say that this is a good school , it's not like other schools that let you slack off and stuff , they keep you on track with what you have to do . All the teachers there went to great Universities and colleges and have absolutely surpassed my expectations. I recommend this school to parents that want they're children to succeed in life .

I am a freshmen at king drew magnet high school. I've recently moved homes and far from the school. i have spend most of my time researching good schools in the area. But none compare to King Drew. I dont want to loose this great opportunity.

As a K/D alum, I have to admit that while the dress code is strict, it allowed us as students to worry less about looking good and more about learning. The teachers at King/Drew were wonderful overall, most cared about our learning and went above and beyond for their students. The principal, Ms. Woods, is a fair and just woman, always friendly and approachable. I dont think I would be where I am now (UCLA) if it weren't for the opportunities this school offered. The college office is always well informed and the extracurriculars are organized efficiently. As a person who spent 4 years there, I would recommend spending your child there.

Very good school,The principle is very professional as well as the teachers. My son has been here since 9th grade and I love the school. The teachers care, the 11 th grade counselor is a great mentor to my son and other students. I wish all the students and staff great success!

Very good school, with dedicated teachers and happy students. The dress code is FAR too strict, and many of the administrators are WAY too casual in their dress, especially because they hold the students to such a high expectation of adhering to the dress code. Also, the parent volunteers at the school could be a bit more professional in their mannerisms (as could the administration).

King Drew is one of the Best High schools in California as far as I'm concerned. Not only are all there regular classes collage prep , they also offer honors and AP courses. King Drew's Standards are higher than the states at king drew they require 1 more year of every subject, after graduating from King Drew your automatically have surpassed any UC Ivy league schools requirements. King Drew also offers a variety of extracurricular activates from JSA to Mock Trail To the Film Club to Cheerleader's Basketball and more. King Dre is The Best.... -Pearce

May 2006 My son is finishing up his first year at KDHS, and I couldn't be prouder of him & all involved with this one-of-a-kind public high school. He leaves home at 6:30 am to catch his bus from the valley to attend. The first thing people ask is 'Aren't you afraid of him being down there?' I'd be more scared if he went down here. So far my favorite teachers are Ms. Fletcher, Mr. Leong,Mr. Usher and thanks to JSA members for taking him under their enormously intelligent wings.

In my opinion KD in one of the best schools period.My children all attended a charter school until time for them to go to high school.That provided them with a safe and nurturing environment.From the point of the orientation until three years later when my oldest daughter began,We have been very impressed with the school.The staffing is well qualified,the school is clean and the leadership is outstanding. I have two children enrolled there and I am very grateful for a school of this caliber being in a community that some would consider poor but they have changed the entire community just with their presence. Thank KD YOU ROCK - CWK AND FAMILY.

It is the best high school the Los Angeles School District could offer. I loved the fact that my daughther went there for the entire four years and she was never in a fight. She loved coming home and telling me all about her day. Her favorite teacher was Mr.Lee.

I was a 2003 graduate from King/Drew Medical Magnet high school, and am now going to an accredited school of the arts that I do not believe I would have been able to achieve with out the guidance of K/D.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

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.
