The office staff is very friendly and helpful. My granddaughters class size this year is only 14 students That is wonderful! The less crowded the class the more attention each student can get and learn. Very pleased

One of the best school. My son spent here 6 yrs. Teachers are amazing! At the school students feel so happy, very welcome. Pretty much like a home environment. Love, love, love this school.

As we are approaching the end of our first year at laurel, I am happy to say that my son will return again next year. It has been a great experience for my son as well as for us. His teacher is the most hard working, caring, smart, dedicated and amazing person. Thanks to her and the whole staff at laurel we have had a successful year. Looking forward to see what first grade brings us!

A very proud parent of a new Panther. The school exemplifies the meaning of diversity and community. The principal Mrs. Diaz is responsive and very visible to the students and parents. Glad we made the choice to stay in the neighborhood and be part of the community.

I would rate it a 1 on a 5 scale. Reasons are: 1The schoolyard is for play is cluttered with containers for storage and unneeded trailer classrooms not being use. Not enough room to play sockball. You basically cannot play on the yard without bumbing into something. They have 7th and 8th grade students going to this school which is not large enough for them. The PE class for 8th graders uses first graders space because the school is small. The 7th and 8th graders do not learn how to grow up with kids their own age such as bancroft middle school and are socially behind for their ages because they are being mixed up with 1st graders. There are no showers for 7th and 8th graders such as with bancroft after excercises. They do not even have a gym. The 14 year old kids are running on a track made for 8 year old kids which is a small circle painted on asphault. It may be good for 1-6 grades but 7th and 8th is a joke. The kids do not mature for their ages like they should because they are stuck in kiddly land until the go to Fairfax High

I am delighted to have a middle school in our neighborhood for my 7th grade twins. We researched every school for miles around, and wound up at a charter school for 6th grade. It is such a relief for my children to come back to a good public school. Laurel has exceeded our expectations for all the extras that schools used to provide. We look forward to 8th grade at Laurel School.

I am a parent and have been since 2001 at Laurel Elementary. It has always been a very educational and welcoming place for my kids. The teachers are great and provide a challenging scholastic experience . The principal, Mrs. Scadron, is supportive and cares about Laurel students and families. I am very excited that Laurel school is adding 7th grade next year which will allow my daughter to continue at this wonderful school.

The LAUSD and the City of West Hollywood just decided to extend Laurel Elementary into a new middle school. They will be offering 6th and 7th Grade classes for this fall (2010/2011). The new School's name will be Laurel School. This is very exiting news for all parents in West Hollywood, teachers and the new principal at Laurel. Please sign up your child! Together we can create our own neighborhood middle school in West Hollywood.

I am really excited about the changes that are happening at this school with the new principal. My child's teachers have always made learning fun and I am pleased that her test scores have been going up each year. The teachers and staff are very friendly and welcoming and make me feel comfortable going to them for any reason.

I love this school. The teachers are good, but for me its all about the principal and her staff. Ms. Dauchenhausen is friendly and approachable, and always available. My son has thrived under their tender care and I really appreciate the fine work they have done with cut back budgets. If you go to this school...get involved and make a difference!

I have been impressed with the staff, and especially, the administration since my first involvement with Laurel Elementary. They are sincere and devoted to the children and their craft. I only wish more parents were as involved with their children and continuing education.

My son's experience was mediocre at best. I asked about working in the classroom and was told it wasn't necessary. They did come to me on several occasions, however--for fundraising. The principal is personable, yet she was completely ineffective with the one problem I took to her. It is a serious issue about my son's teacher. After two weeks and several messages, she eventually called back. The issue was never appropriately addressed or resolved. She made no further effort to make that happen. Some very nice/worthy teachers. Office & other personnel: very nice & caring. Final grade: F. We're white-knuckling it until June 20th and then switching schools.

There could be a lot more parent involment if the principal was more receptive to the parents ideas and input. She tries, but does not accept parent involvement unless she needs warm bodies to help out in school functions.

I have been a teacher at Laurel for the several years. Prior to that, I have experience in three other Los Angeles Elementary schools. I find the atmosphere at Laurel to be friendly and encouraging - well above the average. The school's small size allows for a real learning community to develop. Teachers and students all know each other and there is a great deal of cooperation up and down the line. Students, teachers, staff and parents all contribute to making this school a great place for children to grow. As with any school, it does have it's minor problems here and there, but overall, I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

Laurel elementary was [not] the best choice of a school for my grandaughter. Her 1st grade experience was not pleasant, she had many social as well as academic problems. She needed a more motivated teacher who made learning fun. She is not too happy about going back next year so we are working on finding another school for her. There were quite a few problem kids in her class that took the attention away from the good kids and also any extra help they may have needed. It also seemed as if they didn't want the parents around much. There were no cute pictures on the walls or any school work hanging in the class. It all seemed very boring.

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.
