I was lucky enough to be able to attend the performing arts magnet school for 5th and 6th grade back in 1982 and 83. It was a lifesaver for me as my neighborhood school in the SF Valley was academically horrid and dangerous to-boot.

Loyola Village is a true gem! Where else can you go to school in Los Angeles with a class size of 18-24 students maximum! It's like getting a private education...for free! My oldest is going into fifth grade this year, and he is excited to return to school because his teachers have been engaging and creative with projects in the past. I can't say enough great things about this school - the principal, teachers and staff are all wonderful and are truly engaged.

My son just graduated from the 5th grade at Loyola Village and is headed off to middle school. What a great experience he had at LoVE. The principal is as good as you could hope for at any school. Her enthusiasm for teaching permeates out to all the teachers and staff. The combination of strong academics, a focus on the arts, and the diversity and devotion of the LoVE community is hard to beat. I highly recommend Loyola Village to anyone wanting to give their child a solid foundation for success.

I have two children at this school and I am more than pleased with their. progress. A great school not only offers academics but also a variety of other subjects to awaken children's curiosity. I believe Loyola Village does this and more. The teachers are excellent! They challenge students and find different ways to engage them in the lessons. I recommend this school to any parent that wants their child to grow academically and socially.

I am 33 years old and I graduated from Loyola Village Fine and Performing Arts Center. This school was a launch pad for everything I am today. Chorus, dance, orchestra, and art are just a few of the classes I took while in elementary school. If I still lived in California, my children would definitely be attending this school. I have been trying to find a school like Loyola for my children for years and haven't been able to find anything that compares. Melinda Goodall is the current principal and she was my 5th grade teacher and chorus teacher in 1989. She is an amazing woman and she really cares for sstudents. Anyone considering this scool for their child will pleased with it and your child will remember the experience for a lifetime.

The teachers here are subpar. They meet the minimum standards by teaching to the standardized tests. They don't put in overtime or even provide an ability to contact them (email) after school in order to address issues. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.

I went to Loyola for 6 years k-5 and its the best elementary school ever


Posted September 1, 2011

My children have had an exceptional experience at this school. The teachers are dedicated, smart and more importantly nice. They care about my children. One teacher even visited my son during the summer which made his day. The Principal is amazing. Every year the school gets cleaner and nicer. Parents are involved. The school is multi-cultural and racism is not allowed. The children treat each other with respect and decency. The only thing that could possibly make the school slightly better is if everyone in the local community sent their child to it so that after school all the neighborhood kids would know each other. However, many people have little faith in the Los Angeles Unified School district because they think it's too large and uncaring. That's another debate. If you live in the neighborhood, please send your children to this wonderful school. You won't regret it.

My daughter graduated from this school and I currently have another child in 4th grade in the Performing Arts Magnet. We have found the teachers to be excellant! The principal and entire staff is really there for the children and the extra arts elements have only added to an exciting school experience for our children who are both also in the gifted category.

Good school, not great. A few short comings in the magnet school where my grand-daughter attends. I expected more from a performing arts magnet, my two children attended a Great performing arts school so I expected a more qualified teaching staff as well as a more instructive approach to the arts ie. acting/drama, dance, singing inclusive of all students. Yet, academics was the major focus, and qualitfications of the teachers.

this is a good school, however it wasnt for my daughter. She is now in out neigbhor hood school and is doing VERY well.

My daughter just finished her second year and we have had a wonderful experience so far. Being a teacher myself, I was very picky about her education, but am a strong advocate of sending kids to our neighborhood schools. I am glad i took the chance. She has had great teachers, met amazing families/friends in the area, and is excelling in all areas of academics. Don't let the test scores (and the 5 rating by this website) dissuade you from sending your child here, as standardized tests have long been proven to be an inaccurate measure of student learning. It is a diverse, rigorous, and supportive environment that has strong leadership by the principal and fantastic booster club

Are you looking for a GREAT school with teachers that CARE. Well look no futher because Loyola Village is here! I have two children that attend Loyola Village and only have positive things to say about the school.

The teachers and administrators at Loyola Village are passionate about the arts. Many of them sing/dance/act/play instruments/paint in a professional capacity when they are not in the classroom. That enthusiasm carries over to the kids and gets them excited to learn.

My daughter and I were members of the Loyola Village Elementary (LoVE) family for the past 5 years. (1st-5th grade). I was extremely satified with the overall quality of education, administrative staff, teachers and family programs offered over the course of the past 5 years. I would highly recommend LoVE to any parent/family who is currently searching for school that will support your childs academic success. The PTA and Booster Club partnership shows the parents dedication to suppporting the teachers, keeping the arts and other programs such as our amazaing librarian, Mrs. Greenseid, our fitness programs, guitar lessons to third graders and so much more.

I have two children attending Loyola Village Elementary school. Our family is very happy with the educational instruction as well as the fine and performing arts opprotunities offered. We have an extremely involved and dedicated principal on campus as well as an amazing group of teachers. In addition, I don't think you could find a more dedicated and truly involved school librarian.

The Fine and Performing arts magnet program is really unique and fantastic. My 3rd grade daughter is learning violin, guitar, recorder, vocals, theater, fine arts instruction, and dance. More importantly her wonderful teacher Mrs. Saxon brings the arts to every subject which really is helping my daughter shine academically. I can't wait for my son to start the magnet program. The parent booster club is welcoming and fun. The librarian is lovely and let's bookworms like my kid hang around during recess and lunch. My daughter loves her school. Watch for really great things to come from this school!

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.
