I attended Richland Avenue School starting September 1943 in Kindergarten and going through 6th. Both my sister and brother also attended. When I started the school was in a fairly new area with farmland south to National Blvd and beyond. The school consisted of potable bungalows with an irrigation ditch running across the south middle between the classrooms and the playground area. the Principle was a wonderful man who loved and took care of the students. The teachers helped each student to understand what was being taught. Most teachers lived locally in the West Los Angeles area. I loved the school and returned to talk to my past teachers for many years. New classroom were built and the bungalows removed and chain link fencing installed and it seem to become more of an impersonal institution. But I guess it has to be that way now in this crazy world we live in now.

my child recently started kindergarten, however i've been watching this school since moving to the neighborhood a few years ago. this is a great school! principal "mr. g" is a positive, energetic, fair, and hard-working guy who takes time to get to know students and families. as the pulse of the school, he promotes high moral/ethical behavior standards and parental involvement. both kindergarten teachers are lovely ladies. parents of students in higher grades rave about their teachers too. the school is quaint, and feels like a community where everyone knows each other. neat opportunities that can be provided at a school that has less than 300 students - like fun field trips and events. my child loves richland, and i couldn't be happier with everyone i've encountered there from the front office staff to janitorial staff to the after-school program director. once this school is approved for the french-immersion program, watch out! i dare say it will become quite sought-after! it is great that, unlike other local schools in close proximity, this school does not only care about API scores. students are developed as whole individuals and not just test-takers.

Richland is our local school but we decided not to send our Daughter here for T-K or Kindergarten simply because the test scores in the higher grades looked horrible. We opted to send her to a private school in Santa Monica where she stayed until the end of 2nd grade. I really wish I hadn't have been so swept up with the test score number because if I had taken the time to visit the school, see the small class sizes and meet the staff, I dare say we would have sent our daughter here at the beginning and saved our selves money (which could have been going to a college fund) and we would have been part of the community earlier. Please don't judge this school (like I did) without visiting it or talking to some of the parents. The Booster club is very active and has been working really hard to raise funds for the school and the Principal is fully committed

We engage our diverse students with technology including smart boards, computer lab, music program, library, young storytellers program, learning garden, after school GATE & STAR programs. We also have amazing community involvement with our Booster club. Teachers have high expectations for all students & our campus is a safe learning environment.

Remember the story of the Little Engine That Could? I think I can I think I can - and I can! Meaning - this school has such heart and is really turning in to something wonderful! The Principal, Mr. Granade, has an open door policy to parents, staff and students. He listens. He is leading a dedicated team of teachers and staff who really care about the education and well being of each student. Richland Avenue is small and mighty. Parent support is on the upswing making the whole package complete.

This school is a gem of a school tucked back in a great neighborhood. The school is warm and welcoming. The school is small which is a benefit in a gigantic city and a gigantic school district. This is a huge plus for a public school since everyone knows the students and parents. The staff is very approachable and the Booster Club is very supportive of the school and its students. What a find!

Quite simply, great school, great faculty. Some that (with multiple children) over the years I can call friends. With only one year under his belt as a principal, Mr. Granade has shown a real dedication to the students, staff, and campus. He's vested. I have one graduate, and two with 2 or 3 more years to go. All good.

I'm a new parent to the school and have had just a few encounters as my daughter will begin K in a day. This is truly a community school in which I have been welcomed directly by the Principal upon registering my daughter. I also reached out the a Booster Club parent who promptly responded to my introductory email. I look forward to engaging in my child's education and raising the expectations of public education.

This school is a find. I have a 3rd grader and one in K. Both are thriving and benefit from the small, community school environment. All of the staff and teachers are very supportive. The school provides a number of extra circular activities including science classes, GATE, STAR and fabulous assemblies. All parents are welcome to participate in the classroom and in the Booster club. The new principal and teachers hired this last year are fantastic and fit well into the school environment. It is worth paying the school a visit.

Love this school! My first grader is thriving beyond expectation and has become the teacher's little helper. We have been involved in this school for over 5 years and have been blessed by the level of involvement and exceeding desire by the teachers. They are happy at the school and it reflects on the children! I am able to walk to school and i look forward to the growth of this school as the neighborhood slowly realizes they truly have a hidden treasure in their backyard. Bonus: the new principal is fantastic!!!!

Richland is a gem of a school tucked away in a quiet West Los Angeles neighborhood. The school offers a small school environment with so much enrichment for the kids. Art, music, GATE, an learning garden, Young Storytellers, an active parent group all are part of what makes this school wonderful. Richland has a fabulous new principal who is a strong leader and respected by students, staff and parents. Teachers are all passionate about teaching. STAR after school program is offered for free as well as offering for fee enrichment. We are so lucky to have such a great neighborhood school!

My daughter, who is now finishing her school year at Richland's pre-K program, LOVES this school and can't wait to start kindergarten, which is a testament to the wonderful teaching staff as well as the nurturing school environment. There is a charming, small-town, but progressive, vibe to this school that I've not found elsewhere--and I'm also a step-parent of an older child who attended (on permit) a 10 out of 10 rated elementary school in Bel Air. In terms of the sense of community and the respectful manners and leadership skills I've seen demonstrated by the kids I've observed on the Richland school yard and during events, Richland is a top-notch, classy school with parents who place a high value on academics as well as raising compassionate, poised, values-based kids. We also love the 1+acre school teaching garden and the CSA organic produce program organized by the booster club.

My son is absolutely thriving at this great neighborhood school. A small student body, huge campus, and great teachers is any parents dream. Plus they have an excellent Transitional Kindergarten program. We are very, very happy our child attends Richland Avenue...GO TIGERS!

Posted February 23, 2011

After being hesitant of what has falsely been portrayed about this wonderful, small school, I sent my son to Transitional Kinder w/ Mrs K and we could not be happier and feel more fortunate to have this great school in our neighborhood. With only about 250 kids, set in a very cute neighborhood where everyone at the school knows each other's name and strives to make this a memorable and valuable school experience for the students, I am glad we made the decision to utilize our neighborhood public school. So far this year, we've had a fair, Bob Baker's marionnette puppet show, gardening activities, picnics and much more. The teacher had us at day one when she sent us home a cotton ball, a bag of tea and a tissue symbolizing the softness of our children, tea to relax with while we miss our kids and a tissue in case we shed some tears as our kids start school. (so nurturing and thoughtful, dont you think? I recommend this school and hope our neighborhood families come join the rest of us who love Richland!

Disappointing compared to the other schools in the area. Needs better leadership. Some parents are VERY involved, which is a good start.

I love our little neighborhood school! My son's kindergarten experience was fantastic thanks to great teachers & staff. It didn't take long for everyone there to know his name (and mine) and make us feel right at home. I interacted with his teacher daily! He's thriving there & I couldn't be happier. We especially love the school garden & the arts program. This is a true community school!

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.

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 different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
