My daughter currently attends Pre-K with Ms Garcia. She told me just the other day that she loves going to school. I find that my daughter has learned so much in class and she always has something new to tell me. Another plus is how my husband and I are able to communicate with Ms Garcia when ever we drop off or pick up our daughter (communication is not limited to scheduled visits). We constantly get updates on her learning progress and worksheets to review on upcoming learning activities so we as parents can help. A school like Mayberry and a teacher like Ms Garcia are just the thing a kid needs to develop healthy learning and communications skills. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who asks.
So sorry to hear that your experience at Mayberry was not pleasant. I also have a child in that class and they truly love it! The teacher is very caring. Everyone at Mayberry has been welcoming and pleasant. mSometimes we need to reflect on our approach and parenting before we play the blame game.
Where do I begin with how wonderful this school is, my son attended Pre-K and is currently in Kindergarten and the amount of knowledge that he brings home daily is amazing. Not only is he excited about learning because of the teachers but he looks forward to the next day in class. The staff is by far the best everyone from the office to teachers is so attentive and friendly. The communication between school and parent is amazing I not only get an email in regards to alerts but also a phone call with any parent teacher conferences, field trips and school events. I will have my son in this school for as long as possible.
Outstanding school! Not just a great school but a safe place where your child would be cared for along with receiving a great education. Wonderful, caring, well prepared educators, staff and amicable office staff. Come check it out! You need to come and check it out!
Horrible school! I pulled my son out of pre-k because the teacher was demeaning and could care less about her behavior. After reporting it to the principal I expected the teacher to come to me to see how we could work together. Instead I had to initiate the conversation and she simply stated "I am ok with you going to the principal that is why she gets paid more than I do. You can go to her any time." Needless to say not what I expected to hear. Like most first time parents I couldn't wait to send my first born off to school and get to see him learn, excel and come home excited from school. Instead it was stressful, frustrating and disappointing. The teacher has no desire to teach the children she is simply there to collect a paycheck. I transferred my son to another school and in two months he has already learned more than he did in the 6 months he was with this teacher. Every situation in life has a lesson to be learned and the most gratifying part of this whole process is that my son now knows what a terrible teacher is and what a great teacher is. I would never recommend this school. The reason they have bullying issues is because the staff are bullies themselves.
Hopefully Mayberry is able to pick up on the bullying that kids encounter here. Its a shame that many kids have been moved for that reason. I hope staff picks up on negative things and can make a change for the better. Some teachers are good, some staff is ready to help you with any problem, but it does not mean that everyone is always "up for it".
Mayberry is great school! Small size, staff knows all kids by name, and a PTO that enables the students to experience many things that cannot be funded by the school due to budget cuts. Free after school enrichment classes, apple computer lab, positive behavior stars prog., Mayberry money+store, 4th grade art class, 5th grade full circle, 6th grade Spiritt Series and picnic, etc.. Thank you to the parent volunteers that make this possible! Teachers are great and hopefully the new principal adds more to this already positive community for the kids to learn in!!
This school is a great place to be at, I've volunteered in my child's class and everyone has been very friendly and nice. I like it when i am greeted by the office staff when I walk through the office and sign in. This is a safe school.
My kids come to this school and I have never encountered any major problems. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and when my kids have had incidents that I'm not ok with I just talk to the teachers and things get resolved. Teachers are very dedicated volunteering their time to do activities that go beyond their workday. PTO works very hard to bring new programs and administration is very welcoming and helpful, always willing to listen to try to resolve problems.
Mayberry St. is a great school with dedicated teachers and staff. PTO raises a lot of money for extracurricular activities and programs. I highly recommend this school..
MAYBERRY IS A GREAT SCHOOL. We have the best Staff. My 2 children love there teachers and the TA too. We have the best PTO and Excellent Parents Volunteer.
My 3 kids go to this school. They love it and we couldn't have been luckier. The office staff, teachers, and parents are always working hard to give the best to all students. There are afterschool enrichment classes, and they are awesome. Tutoring, guitar, cooking, arts&crafts, CST prep, Yearbook, Spanish, Volleyball, and Guest Speakers classes are offered just to name a few. Academically, Mayberry is about to hit the 800 benchmark. The life learning, and mix culture experience is not something my kids would otherwise learn in the books. AWESOME!
Great school!!! All my children attend this elementary school and I have no complaints. The staff and teachers are awesome! The school is very clean. Everyone is supportive and the community is great! My children's grades have gotten better each year! This school is very dedicated in raising money to help the school with getting the students the things they need in order to maintain a better education. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their children to be taught by the best and that want to feel like home.
Mayberry Street Elementary School is a diamond in a field of coals. Never knew they have a Pre-School/Pre-Kindergarten program and they have been here in the 90026 area for the longest time. We just participated in a parent/child orientation with the teachers and I feel relieved and confident, we made the right choice in landing in this school. We love our daughter s teachers and how organized and structured the curriculum and staff. The school is super clean and is perfect. I love that this program is public and not tied to a state program that hinders parents based on income. Not a whole lot of people know about their Pre-school program and currently still have lots of room for more students. Actually if you do an internet search, Mayberry does not pop up for pre-schools. I just happen to find out they have a program by calling the principal and asking if she knew any other programs nearby the area, and thank God they just happen to have one. So for those who are panicking and still looking for a perfect public pre-school program, I strongly recommend and want to make sure everybody knows about Mayberry Street Elementary School s Pre-School/Pre-Kindergarten!
We are about to begin a new school year and we are so happy to be back at Mayberry. I had taken my child out of Mayberry and enrolled her at Gabriella Charter because I thought she would get a more enriching education due to their performing arts program. Big mistake. My child's test scores fell. The teachers were nowhere nearly as effective as the Mayberry teachers. The Mayberry teachers genuinely care about the students and work very hard to help them achieve. They have a positive attitude and you always get the feeling you are walking into a welcoming, nurturing environment. For being a performance charter, Gabriella was also weak. Mayberry has an excellent afterschool dance class run by Mrs. Maldonado, a great drama club run by Mr. Avina, and other awesome clubs that leave Gabriella in the dust. So glad to be back!
this is the best school ever my dauther learns alot from this school and this school is very clean
Mayberry is a family school; the teaching staff is superior, students are safe, office staff friendly and welcoming, administration always put the students first (the principal just retired and we don't yet know the new leadership), school is emmaculate, parents have become quite involved during the past few years and there are after school interest classes as well as LA's best and Youth Services available. It is a hidden jewel in the area!!
I love the sense of community at the school...And the 6th grade teachers are the best!!!!! :)
