I went to Kindergarden and First grade in the early 40's, every Monday we were given a tablespoon of cod liver oil and a glass of orange juice. Mondays, we all went to assembly to learn about the world out there: "THIS IS MANUFACTURING" or other. Once a month, we were bussed to interesting places: Labrea Tar Pits, the mountain top observatory immortalized in the movie REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. This was MUCH better than My children received in Silicone Valley in the 60's. I wonder what Loretta Street has to offer NOW? Michael Dale Rogers class of 44
My kids love this school. The teachers is good and work hard. They care about kid. Students are happy. Principle is nice and caring. Kids win much awards.
This school is really good. My son use to go there all the teachers he had where really good with him. My daughter goes there know she is in 3rd and her teacher has her doing 5th4 grade work she's learning how to use power point....
I think this school is overrated. They really haven't improved for the past three years!
The rating on this website is completely inaccurate. I pulled my child out of a much higher ranking, CA distinguished, blue ribbon school in order to send her to Loreto, and I drive over 30 miles every day to bring her there and back. I cannot emphasize enough that Loreto is an excellent school, with highly trained, professional teachers and staff. My child is gifted, and her teacher created a special curriculum to challenge her. She has never been happier. The best part of all, however, is that Loreto is one of a few LA Unified schools that offer a dual language program. The best time to learn a 2nd language is when you're young! At Loreto, you have the option of placing your child in a bilingual class, where they learn to speak, read and write in Spanish as well as English. Great Job Loreto!
Great school...Is not a true shared decision making staff...Teachers are stifled in using their experience and creativity in designing their curriculum....
It is a good school, the teachers are really helpful in getting the kids to learn. They try really hard to keep the children interested in school. Both my boys have been going to this school, the oldest just culminated (graduated) from Loreto. But all the teachers have been really good, and are still good. Leadership is very good also, they practilly know each kid by their first name. Fun after school programs also.
