The staff and teachers are wonderful, and the parents support the school!
Another year is about to begin and I am so sad that our dear Principal Bennett will not be there to greet my children....the school is wonderful, nurturing and focused on the whole child.. a great place for our family..we wish our Principal a happy retirement and we will miss her alot!
we moved to echo park last year from el monte. i loved el monte school district for my daughter. i never thought there would be a great school like the one my daughter was at before, but from the first day my daughter started i knew it was a great school. my daughter cried on her first day and the office personnel were sweet and comforting and reassuring. the school environment is caring,clean, and the staff is willing to do whatever it takes for my daughter to succeed. my daughter had a problem with math,but they worked with us and gave me some tips how to get better at it. i really love this school for my daughter. this year i will be enrolling my son in pre-school. i know he'll be in good hands!
This is a very good school, the principal, teachers & staff are great... I love the new valet program in the morning it is great. We specially love the Mayberry Fiesta!! Looking forward for the 3rd one!! Also thanks to Mr. Avina and the new drama class... looking forward for one this year.. the kids did great!!
With 6th grade now added and a motivated, eager neighborhood community looking to contribute their time and energy to Mayberry, we feel lucky to have this public school within walking distance of our house.
We have been fortunate to have our child at this wonderful school. The Principal, Paula Bennett and the great teachers as well as the whole school staff really care about the students. There is an excellent program for students who have special needs and they are always a part of everything! We couldn't be happier with Mayberry!!
My children are not school aged yet but as a neighbor to the school I can say that Principal and staff seem very dedicated to the students. The school facilities are bright and clean and the propriety itself feels protected and nurturing. I also hear that they have successfully petitioned for a 6th grade class, which a lot of parents were asking for.
Great School in the community the best staff and teachers. The school really supports and care for students.
Up and coming school. If more parent involvement, then this school has a potential of being a distinguished school.
My son is in his 5th year at Mayberry. Overall, I give the school high marks. The principal is extraordinary, staff is great, and faculty is mostly very good, with a few teachers who really shine. The kindergarten program is excellent and the primary grades are very strong. 4th grade has very good teachers, but the curriculum is, like all LAUSD schools, uninspired. 5th graders do a program called 'Full Circle' that teaches community and character building in a variety of on and off campus settings. Parent involvement is not strong, but is growing. Not particularly diverse, racially or economically. the plant is only about 12 years old, except for the ubiquitous bungalows. Clean! The maintenance staff is the best. The school feels very safe and nurturing and I think it will just get better in the future.
Academic environment is outstanding. Administration is friendly and approachable. Campus is safe, with two after school programs (LA's BEST & E.Y.S.) offered. Plant Manager and custodians have done an excellent job maintaing Mayberry in excellent condition.
Mayberry is located in a quiet Echo Park residential neighborhood. The teaching staff is outstanding and they have a wonderful administrator.
Terrific learning evironment with an amazing sense of community. Teachers, staff, and administrators are friendly, norturing and welcome everyone with open arms. Maybery has two after school programs: LA's BEST and E.Y.S. Apply early in the year for LA's BEST, though; spaces are filled very quickly. Both program operate from the time school is out till 6:00pm and are free. Student safety is a high priority at Mayberry. Mayberry is situated in a lovely, quiet neighborhood.
This school has a great academic program. The teachers are well educated and work with your child. The school was able to have the Full Circle program for the 5th grade class this year. What a wonderful and educational experiance for the children. The school has great parent and staff involvement in everything from school programs to fundraisers. I highly recommend this school.
Mayberry Street Elementary School is a very good school. It is not overcrowded, very clean, and teacher's are always available to answer questions and try their best to help students. The student's at Mayberry score very high in all tests. The school is located in a very nice neighborhood. I rarely see grafitti on the walls and when there is grafitti it is immediately painted over. Mayberry's after school program is very safe for children staying after school hours. I recommend this school to all parents!
