This school was a big disappointment . My son did not learn anything, the office staffs are rude and disrespectful.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 26, 2012

Since my child has been in the school all I have seen is a lot of disorganization. I want my child to get educated but also learn how to be proficient in all areas. The school never sends home notice's in a timely manner. They really need help with this new "Breakfast in the Classroom". It is such a traffic jam to get our children to school. With everyone having to be there at 7:55am it makes it a mess. It usse to be that you had a choice of 7:40am or by 8:10am it is TERRIBLE!!!!!

This school has been a big disappointment. The administration has no social skills. If a child has inproved above grade level and the teacher reconmend the student be tested for gifted the administration will not support the teachers findings.

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.
