Thank you Mrs. Bancroft for being an excellent teacher, you are the best with Mrs. Lopez (title I), and two excellent secretaries Miriam and Laura. Mr. Vergara did an excellent job with the musical band, but I can not to say the same from the principal and her assistant, I can`t understand why exist people that bad, I feel sorry for the parents who they kids still attending Miramonte, this school is not recommended for any child, my experience was a nightmare last year, the principal and her office team works really hard to make unhappy teachers , the other personal areas including cafeteria and the parents, 2012-2013 was the principal first year as principal and she thinks she was the best, but I don`t think so, around all the school I could see always unhappy faces, I`m glad my kids are not attending any more to this school. Parents please be aware about this school, I don`t need to probe it, everyone knows what happened in this school last year and this year too. I got from the principal only a nice fake smile.
My daughter attended all 6 years of her elementary schooling at Miramonte. When she entered middle school she was placed in the honors courses because of her good grades and high test scores. My daughter received a very good education here. A big thank you goes out to all the hard working teachers at Miramonte.
I am a parent and was a student at Miramonte Elementary School , and this is one of the best school in LA county I really do recommend this school to anyone, that is the reason My daughter does to this school. And Mrs. Martinez in kindergarden is very special for my daugther, she has alot of patient with my daugther, she teach her alot to speak and to read. She is the best kindergarden teacher.'Mrs.Martinez' and for Mrs. Suvia she is a first grade teacher of my daughter, she is very lovely my daugther feels very good in her class. This is what Miramonte school has to offer other kids, to enjoy learning and playing with other. I really do enjoy know that my daughter is in vacation, my daugther misses her teacher 'Mrs. Suvia' she is the best 1 grd teacher. From: Family Gastelum
Hi I am a parent of 3 students in Miramonte Elementary School and I am very proud to also say I am the community rep for this school; I've worked in several school's in LAUSD and I can say that Miramonte Elementary is one of the best schools thats why my children are here, I took them out of a malfunctioning school and brought them here, I have proof that my kids raised theyre tesk scores and grades. I can also say that at Miramonte Elementary School theyre is 100% parent outreach, we have one of the best principal's, coordinators and teachers.
My daughter attends this school, and it is very unsatisfactory. I am having a personal problem with this school regarding the track system, and I can tell you. The staff does not have the well being of the child in mind. They only think about how many children that they have. The leadership needs to be replaced.
This principal is a winner; dedicated, intelligent and knows what he's talking about in educating children. Our non-profit literacy agency, The Riggs Institute, trained his previous staff at the 122nd St. Elementary School just before the L.A. district mandated the use of Open Court. Mr. Lopez understands how to use direct, Socratic and multi-sensory teaching techniques and should be permitted to do so; he also knows the phonetic structure of correct English spelling and how it works to teach all children, with all 'learning styles' how to read fluently with comprehension and to write legibly and with accuracy and clarity of thought. Since ability in the language arts facilitates all other learning of significance, your school is to be congratulated.
