I am a new parent at Open and the school has most certainly lived up to its amazing reputation. My first grader is not only flourishing but she loves going to school. The curriculum is child-centered and the teachers find innovative ways to make learning fun and memorable. My child even loves to stay after-school for the amazing after-school classes. We are very proud to be a part of the Open School Community.

Open Charter is truly an impressive place, where teachers and administrators work collaboratively (and tirelessly) to make education meaningful and engaging for all students. I am particularly grateful for the differentiation of instruction that I see on a regular basis, in the form of acceleration for those who indicate readiness, as well as remediation for students who need it. The constructivist approach provides the diverse student population with the opportunity to be active participants in their own education, while becoming independent and responsible lifelong learners. Although I am a teacher at another high performing charter school, I have chosen to send my child to Open. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to do so.

I feel so lucky that my children won the magnet lottery and got into Open, a successful school with a high-interest curriculum AND green space. What prospective parents should know is that there are no textbooks here: the teachers are both able and willing to write their own project-based curriculum. And there is a broad base of parent participation in the classroom and out. These are difficult times for public education at all levels in California, but Open is holding a steady course. The proof is in the outcomes. My children love to go to school and are engaged in learning (and have test scores to prove it). My biggest problem: finding a middle school that even remotely like it.

The Open School is an extraordinary place wit incredible teachers and staff. Children look forward to school everyday and parents are welcome to assist in every aspect of the school. Much of the reason that our school is such a special place is because of our principal, Robert Burke. He is bright, dedicated, and a great leader who successfully balances the needs of the teachers with the hopes of the parents and children. He personally solicits grants and works closely with parents to write additional proposals. He is very supportive of the parent-led Friends of Open School, which raises substantial funds with the participation of the vast majority of parents who pledge personal dollars and/or plan a variety of successful fundraising events. Concerning the students' behavior, Open School has an excellent record of responding to problems quickly and effectively. It's a wonderful and safe place with a great staff and principal.

I am a very involved parent at Open. The Open School's constructivist philosophy influences every aspect of the school community. It is and should be continually evolving as the needs of our children and staff evolve. One can certainly see this in the areas of discipline and behavior modification. The school has a general discipline 'policy.' Each cluster has one too, yet many times I have observed children's behavior issues addressed individually. A personalized plan is developed and the teachers and staff follow through. Just last week, I saw our Principal Robert Burke take time out of his day to help a cluster work through a behavior problem that was in danger of affecting the cooperative and trusting culture of the classroom. The teachers feel free to call on his leadership in all areas. Parents should also feel comfortable approaching him. He works hard for our school and children.

Due to the budget cuts, this has been a very difficult time in education. Teachers have been laid off, morale has dipped and programs have been cut. When I step onto the Open School campus, it is a relief to see that these negative outside factors have not impacted the school. The teachers are working hard, the special programs have continued and the kids are learning. The principal has done an amazing job of fighting to keep an amazing school together. He fights for the school, the staff and the children and his efforts should be commended. I love The Open School and appreciate the efforts of the staff, teachers, and administrators to hold everything together. BRAVO!!!!

The Open School is one of the only bright spots in LAUSD . The teachers are incredibly talented and committed, the students are engaged and happy, the parents are supportive and active, and everyone is inspired by the leadership of the fantastic principal, Robert Burke. In these difficult times for public schools, with the budget crisis looming and teachers losing their jobs, Mr. Burke somehow manages to keep the focus of the Open School community squarely on the children. Students of every age feel comfortable bringing him their problems and conflicts and he seems to know each and every child. With the help of the wonderful parent group, Friends of the Open School and the many many committees (all composed of both teachers and parents) the principal has managed not only to keep the Art, Music, Garden, PE, and technology programs in place, but to expand them. It's a wonderful school.

Wonderful program and opportunities for children. Great education shouldn't cost a lot of money, it should be evenly available to every child just like the Open Charter is.

Children are regarded as individuals and are accepted with all their strengths and weaknesses. They are not taught just to meet curriculum levels but rather to be creative thinkers and true citizens of the world around them. The entire school is a community of nations and cultures and the teachers and staff are a second family to all of us.

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.
