We have amazing, innovative, and caring teachers successfully implementing a constructivist philosophy of education. We also have a diverse population of families who are very involved and committed to making the school the best it can be. Students are very engaged in their learning and love coming to this school!
Open Charter Magnet School teachers are simply amazing. My child is getting a fantastic education not only in terms of academics but also in terms of what it means to be a good person. And the principal, the staff, and the incredibly active parent body are all dedicated to supporting the work of these teachers. My daughter is thriving at Open Charter, and I feel very lucky and proud to be a part of this school.
Open Charter is an amazing school. Mr. Burke, the teachers, parents and children work incredibly hard to make the environment rich for learning and creating. This is the best school and we're hoping for a middle and high school. My hats off to all the staff including the office workers that do everything and a bit more!!!!!!
Open Charter Magnet School has been able to close the achivement gap between white, asian, african-american and latino children thus truely leveling the playing field for all to achieve. Without a focus on multi-culturalism this would not have been possible.
Open School has an amazing community of involved and dedicated parents, teachers and staff who work hard to create a wonderful and positive educational environment for our children. We love Open School!
The expertise and love that the faculty puts into everything they do! I feel so relaxed and secure when my sons go to school.

Incredible learning enviornment - not the traditional rows of desks Plus a full enrichment program - garden, art, P.E., music, percussion, band and more
non-traditional thematic learning environment where the children love to learn
Open School is one of the best schools in Los Angeles...it's unique, special, and just an amazing place.
I love Open School because the teachers are so dynamic and tuned in to students individual needs.
Open Charter is a great school. The school incorporates unique and creative ways to teach the children the school curriculum.
It's a fantastic school with amazing faculty and highly involved parents!
Dedicated parents and dedicated staff members make this the ultimate public school!!!!
We just started at Open Charter and love it! My daughter, along with all the other kids run to class when the bell rings, a sign that they are very enthusiastic and excited about class time. The teachers and staff seem fabulous and there's a lot of parent involvement. The homework promotes learning at home, and interaction among family members to learn.
It took me years to get my child into Open Charter School and was worth the effort. I have found that Open Charter is more than a school but actually drives a family enviroment. The staff members know all the parents by name and child - not because they are told to do so but because I believe they invest there time and interest in knowing every child and helping every child succeed. The school does not focus on tests but rather teaching overall knowledge on all topics. Personally, I have watch my son become an indepent person through the learnings from Open Charter which he was not taught at his other school. The offsite school trips that my children took for 3 to 5 days gave my children the ability to use application of learnings versus solely theorectical knowledge. The school and parents make Open Charter the number one school.
Open Charter Magnet School make everyone feel like a big familie and its a school kids love to go to.
Open School makes me want to go to elementary school all over again! It blows away the fancy private school we attended previously.
