A wonderful school. This school has a great community feel - the faculty, parents and students all seem to really enjoy each others company. I am really pleased that my child is learning math with the Singapore Math program. It is the way that I believe Math should be taught - with an understanding of the concepts rather than sheer memorization. So glad we get to be part of this school.

Melrose Magnet is a small community of parents, teachers and students who are dedicated to the education and growth of the students. The children at Melrose are learning from Project Based lessons, Singapore Math and hands on computer time. I have been a parent at Melrose for 6 years and feel it is an excellent choice for those looking for public elementary schools. One last thing: The Principal is fantastic and very dedicated.

Melrose has proven to be a truly exceptional school from the teachers to the staff to the parents and of course the students. My child feels academically challenged, socially nurtured and creatively engaged in all areas of student life. Go Melrose!

Proof that investing in public schools WORKS! An outstanding staff, a curriculum dedicated to the belief that if you teach to the top of the class all children will rise to the challenge, and a parent community that is a family. Students thrive academically and socially in this beautifully diverse school. Melrose Magnet is well ahead of the curve in everything you could want for your child.

If you are looking for a truly diverse community where all children are respected and expected to excel, then Melrose Elementary is for you. We are so thrilled to be part of such a dynamic community. Our son is thriving and we all love spending time with our Melrose family. The staff and parents work together to make Melrose Elementary an exceptional environment.

My son attended another school during his 1st grade year, although we liked his other school I truly didn't believed that it was the school for him. I knew he needed something more, something that would nurture his creativeness and grow innate seeds that he didn't have an opportunity develop before. This was met at Melrose Elementary. I am always amazed at the staff, teachers, and administrators who really dedicate time, not only to my son but to each student. IT'S an AMAZING place for him as a student, and as a parent to know that there is such a school that really wants to make a difference for the students, parents, and the community. WE LOVE! Melrose Elementary School.

My daughters both attend this school. I loved it from the first time I stepped foot in the vintage auditorium, and I have come to love it more every day because of the dedicated staff and the amazing community of families! My daughters have blossomed - great friends, loving to read AND do math - I couldn't ask for more. There are incredible opportunities to get involved, and the parents do! From the parent who organized the school's participation in the Global Cardboard Challenge, to the group of parents who recently threw a school wide Korean BBQ and Movie Night fundraiser, to the parents who greet you in morning at the valet drop off and pick up your recycling from you at the same time, this is a remarkable oasis in the heart of Los Angeles. Our family is so fortunate to be part of it!

Our school is the little school that can! We have the most incredible teachers, para educators and parents. Our community is like no other - it is a family. It is a wonderful place to know that my children are all day long.

When I used to give school tours three years ago, I told parents that this little gem was LA's "best kept secret". Well, I guess the word is out now! We have an API Score that has jumped from about 700 to almost 900, an Apple Distinguished Award, a CA Distinguished Award, a technology program that has become the gold standard for LAUSD, Singapore Math, a gracious new principal in Stephanie Harris who jumped in to takeover for our visionary, Bernadette Lucas, who went to the district to bring technology to ALL students, the most amazing students who "reach for the stars", a group of parents who stop at nothing to make a positive impact on the children, and the phenomenal teachers who inspire us all with their ongoing education and commitment to excellence. All of this would not be possible without the heart and soul of a community of people who have come together despite ethnical, sociological and economic differences, to work together toward a common goal; the well-being of our children.

Been to the school from K-5th grade and every year it gets better. You can not beat the atmosphere, the teacher and parent involvement that is needed for our schools to be successful in LAUSD. The positive influences and the resources that each student has to be able to become productive and knowledgeable to succeed in life is taught in the curriculum and the hidden curriculum of education. The answers are within our STAR Students on how successful Melrose is. We need the funds to continue the programs for our Kids and their future. Safe, Tolerant, Aware, Respectful, Responsible, Go STAR PRIDE! Thank you for supporting.

Melrose MST Magnet has been the BEST school I have ever went to. I have moved between many schools to see which one was the best, and I found my self to say Melrose MST Magnet is. My teachers here have helped me alot. Just for them, now I am at a really good middle school, John Burroughs. I will always be thankful to them; and not to forget, the principal really made this school wonderful. To her interest and hardwork, I had my best years there, even by being the General Maneger of the Student Store.


Posted August 25, 2011

AWESOME! The principal firstly is an epitome of poise, intelligence and educator. She leads by example but with much gentle and full of heart kind of leadership. The teachers are thus also inspired despite the challenges in their profession. And so kudos to the parents who are tirelessly present to support whatever the school needs in manpower. The students are very lucky. And because they see the great dynamics among all their educators, staff and parents, the children are motivated to learn and to know even beyond the four walls of their classrooms. There is just so much positive energy surrounding the campus. We love it like it is our second home. GO STARRS!

We drive our daughter for over 30 min one way each morning just so she can attend this school, it is absolutely amazing. The dedication from parents as well as from students and staff to make it the best place ever, is exceptional and much appreciated.

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 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.
