. a neighborhood is a geographical area surrounded by trees, grass dirt, cars and buildings. I think it is wrong on anyone's part to say that the neighborhood is bad. example: 1 can take all of the people in Beverly hills, & all of the people near Muir , & swap both groups with both neighborhoods, & Muire's neighborhood, would eventually function as the Beverly hills does, & the same goes with Beverly hills, it would eventually start to function as Muir does. geographical masses of land house no emotion, or bitterness encased within its earths crust. its the people which shape an effective environment (parents plus teachers) one of the most effective educators at Muir (Ms. Tammy T Nettles 6th grade) once told me. that "it takes a village to raise a child", Muir is a great school because there are caring teachers there like Ms. Nettles. Ms.Nettles has enough in-heart desire for student success to create a contagious cancer like thirst for higher achievement .these are the types of educators that make a difference in a child's life I have heard many stories about the school and the teachers working there, but the best stories always told about educators like her..

This school isn't horrible it's like any other school and,it's really stereotyped. However, I am a graduate class of 2012 and this school helped my growth. It made a realized the road I wanted in the future and no you don't have to be in a gifted program or magnet to succeed. Although its a really good look to be in one of those but much better to be a usc nai scholar. I made it to the high school program by building my work ethic since I was never in any of those programs as mentioned. The school can I'm prove in staff with integrity and not give many warnings to misbehaved students because the students make the school seem how it is but staff can also improve in giving students adequate and appropriated level work I was really concerned towards that my year some students that should had have the privilege to be gifted or magnet were there when others had to mange learning more in other disruptive classes. Overall this school help me grow into a teen phase.

This is a terrible school, please do not send your kids to this school! I went to this middle for my 3 years and i saw so many things I should of never seen, so many bad things happened to me at this school, the kids were out of control, the teachers acted so careless and mean. Most kids in the school got into gangs and drugs and so many other terrible things. And I bet the other people who rated the school that said students probably had to do it at school.

Being a teacher, I am am somewhat biased, but I love Muir. There are problems without a doubt, but the school compares very favorably to other schools in the area. There are a lot of really good teacher and substitutes almost always tell me how Muir is less chaotic and disorderly than other MS's in the area.

The school can be a good school if the child is placed in the right programs. The magnet program is great, but the other programs are not up to grade level. There are problems, but I think it is one of the better schools in the area.

This is one of the worst schools that you can torture your child to stay in. My only reason for placing him in this school is out of convenience and now I am living to regret it. My son has never been a fighter but has had to learn to defend himself, due to the lack of security in this school. Most of the teacher have a who cares attitude let the next teacher deal with it. I will not make that mistake with my other two boys no matter what I will have to do to have them go to a diffrent school. My son has been jumped a numerous amount of time. How come there is nobody around to see these things.

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.
