I have had a wonderful expirience at Roscomare Road Elementry!!! I have two kids at the school, grades K and 2. They have both had and continue to have exceptional teachers!! The schools academic standards have surpassed my expectations. The parent body is highly involved and raises monies needed for state cut programs. My kids partake in PE, art, science and music on a weekly basis. The school physically is quaint and small - and is maintained nicely. I do agree that traffic is an issue for some but only for 20 minutes in the morning and again at pick up - if you plan accordingly and leave with time traffic is not an issue. Roscomare is an amazing school filled with wonderful administration and gear families- I am proud to be a Roscomare parent!

Both my children attend this school, and love their teachers. While the teachers can be considered strict and run a tight ship, they are also creative and caring. Every single one of the teachers we have has taught to the standards but also brought something more than just academics. For instance, one teacher would bring a fruit or vegetable into the class, and the kids would draw it, write about it in their journal, and sometimes even taste it. For instance, my son came home from class wanting me to make him spaghetti squash. This same teacher also would have the kids run a lap every day before starting class (and she ran it with them). Another teacher has a beta fish and a house plant on every desk for each kid and this is just in first grade. So even though this is a very academic school, the teachers still make a huge effort to keep in mind that they are teaching children who need more stimulation than just looking at a board. But at the same time, the academic teaching is amazing. My daughter went from barely knowing the whole alphabet when she started kindergarden to reading within 3 months. Parents are really involved and the staff are great.

If you are even considering public school, look no further. Roscomare is the highest scoring elementary school in Los Angeles. The parent community is diverse, active, and very energized. Our children are challenged academically and thriving socially. There is art, music, PE, everything you could want at a public or private school. I have heard many parents with children entering Roscomare from prestigious private schools lamenting that their kids needed tutors to catch up to Roscomare's curriculum. It is a privilege to live in this area so we can attend this excellent school.

We have two children at this school and this will be our sixth year. The education that our children have received has been incredible! The entire school faculty is amazing. The Principal knows every child by name and is one of the most caring and considerate people I have ever met. We are truly lucky to have Roscomare as our local neighborhood school.

This is a very fine school. My son, fortunately has the choice of going to the best private schools in the area and yet we chose Roscomare Road for the excellent teaching and challenging academics. Mr. Gaeta approach to teaching is like nothing I have seen elsewhere. All of the teachers are excellent. Principle DiMarco is a thoughtful, smart, hardworking leader. The parental involvement via the Booster Club is very impressive. Roscomare Road is not your typical LAUSD school. It is the very best in the area.

Roscomare is an amazing school and our family has had a great experience over the past 7 years. This year my child has been doubly blessed not just to be in a great school but to have been placed in Mr. Pablo-Gaeta s split 4/5th grade class. Mr. Pablo Gaeta is just a wonderful teacher, his creativity and enthusiasm that surrounds his personality and teaching style is more than just respectable, it is truly admirable. He has managed to inspire my child to want to learn and study. His fun loving, patience and caring attitude is something we all could only wish we had. He has invented a system that motivates and encourages the kids to do better. My child has never been so focused and determined to do so well in a class. My child s dedication to achieve a 100% on the tests in his class has even inspired my other children to do better and work harder. Mr. Pablo-Gaeta s star system and his invention of the JEDI/Star Wars atmosphere in the class has made the kids feel like a real community/something they want to be a part of. In addition, my child s vocabulary has grown beyond my wildest imagination even in this short period of time under Mr. Pablo-Gaeta s instruction. This special teacher s unique and creative teaching style not only emphasizes academic learning but also emotional stability and a healthy mental attitude. I think that we as adults need to take a step back and instead of criticizing Mr. Pablo-Gaeta s creative and different teaching style we need to be opened minded to a new way of doing things. Principle DiMarco had the forsight and vision to bring such a teacher to our school. I think some gratitude towards Mr. Pablo-Gaeta s willingness to go above and beyond for our children is in order. We all must remember that as parents, teachers and faculty we want the best for the kids; We are in a new time and a new generation, so perhaps a new way of teaching can help us all.

I agree with the previous parent. I am a parent at Roscomare and have gone through the whole school from Kintergarten to 5th grade. The parents' participation is phenomenal. It really makes a difference when parents get involved. There are two teachers who really are horrible, but if you are invovled you can prevent harm to your kids through bad teachers who can be found anywhere. The rest of the teachers are the best to be found anywhere. They teach, inspire and help give the kids such a great foundation for the real world. Mr. Gaeta is an inspiration and I have never run across a teacher of his caliber before. He teaches vocabulary on the SAT as well as Algebra, Geometry, Physics, etc. The kids are not taugh anything they aren't ready for. Everything makes sense and these kids love the challenge.

We love Roscomare. With the exception of 2 teachers, all of them are great. There is one who is awesome and the kids can t stand it if they have to miss school. Mr. Gaeta is the only teacher who has a complete classroom culture built in the class. He teaches ethics, morals, excellence, learning, responsibility, respect and more by tying everything into the Jedi Code (from Star Wars). Sounds funny, but it works. Kids earn progress stars to chart their way to becoming a Jedi Master. Discipline is a Jedi Mediation or a note to the parent called a Disturbance in the Force. I am sure he will be remembered as my kids most favorite educator because he has a total theme approach to excellence in education. He makes it make sense and makes it fun. The other teachers should look at creating a classroom culture as he has.

If only there would be a similar middle school and/or high school available for our kids, then I would die a happy man. But we can't have everything.

I was very disappointed with Roscomare Road. I expected my child to learn to read in Kindergarten, but they assumed all the children alreay knew how to read, and did not take the time to teach them. I found many of the parents cold and unfriendly. It was not unusual to walk in the school and not have one person smile back at me or respond when I said hello. The principal did not know the students and was not visible. When my child's first grade teacher went to write in her record for this year, the teacher from last year didn't write anything. Think twice before considering this school.

Roscomare Road is a small, neighborhood-based and parent supported school with high academic standards. Nestled in the hills of uppe Bel Air, the school seems removed from the usual hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, and the level of parental involvement in fundraising and community-building activities gives it a small-town feel. The teachers are excellent, seem generally happy with their work. The students are engaged and motivated. The principal has the respect of parents and teachers alike. The school definitely 'teaches for the tests' -- and places a high importance on academic achievement.

My first grader has had a great experience. Curriculum is clever and fun yet rigorously addresses fundamentals. They often teach several ways of doing something, so everyone can find their own learning style. A focus on values that we were surprised to find at a public school. Kindness and respect for one another are stressed and reinforced. A very high level of parental involvement, both in terms of volunteering in the classroom, etc. and fundraising efforts. The teachers my daughter has had have been wonderful and caring. Her kindergarten teacher had 30 years experience and was at once nurturing of the kids and expected them to behave kindly and well. Really helped my frightened daughter make a smooth transition. Her first grade teacher is relatively new but creative, energetic and loving. Because of private fundraising, the kids have music, art and computer lab programs. Principal is a bit of a cold fish.

Our daughter has attended Roscomare since kindergarten and we are very pleased. Most of the teachers are excellent and very committed and the school gets lots of help from a very active parent community. Academics are very important here and the homework can be a little extensive. Extracurricular activities like music and computer lab are also available.

Roscomare is considered one of the best public schools in LAUSD. It is highly academic, and it's test scores are evidence. The greatest asset of this school is it's parent involvement. The Booster Club provides additional aides for all classrooms, which helps the teachers spend all of their time on teaching. The Booster Club also provides for physical education, art, music and computer lab. The principal is excellent. The teachers are good. My oldest has been going to Roscomare from K through 5 and will be graduating this year. I am saddenned that he will be moving on as the atmosphere is one of a safe and nurturing environment. My kids love their school and have been very adamant that they would not want to change schools if we were to move.

I cannot heap enough accolades on this school. I had two children enrolled here from k-5 and found most teachers went beyond the state curicullum requirements each year. Parent involvement was amazing! The school also has a gate program beginning in the 3rd grade as well as band, art, and chorus. They also offer after school activities for children of working parents. Both my kids were extremely prepared when entering middle school. I believe Roscomare Road laid the foundation for my children's continued academic success.

Roscomare Road lives up to its wonderful reputation. I have two boys there, and have been very pleased with their classes, teachers, and fellow students. The school is highly academic - some kindergarten parents feel it is too accelerated. The Booster Club works very hard and raises enough money to supply extra aides, art and music teachers K-5, a coach, and many extras. Orchestra is offered for 4th and 5th graders. Parents should plan to be involved, plus write yearly donations to the Booster Club. Roscomare offers a private school education for public school prices.

What a wonderful public school. The quality of the teachers, the resources and the education make this a fantastic place for the children. It is one of the top performing schools in the district, it has a great music teacher and very high level of parent involvement.

We have a son who has completed kindergarden and will be entering 1st grade in september 05. We have been pleased with the outstanding quality of the teachers and helpers. They are very attentive to the children and their curiculum is wonderful. Parental involvement is very, very high. The classroom and playground facilities are in excellent shape. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the school. It is as fine as a first tier private school!

Roscomare Road is considered to be one of the best elementary schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. It is located in a residential neighborhood in Bel Air and has approximately 450 students. The kindergarten experience was wonderful: nurturing and warm. Starting in 1st grade the students follow a traditional academic curriculum; homework every night that is pulled straight from a textbook, nothing too imaginative. The teachers, though, are caring and thoughtful. The parent body is involved and supportive. Most people think for a public school that it is excellent and prepares their kids to go on to either private or public middle school. The after school programs, however, are very poor. Lack of supervision, poorly administered, and just plain not adequate. This leaves working parents in a quandary. Most people just accept this and either pick up kids at the usual 2:40pm or shrug their shoulders.

Great neighborhood school with very involved parent support and excellent 'Extras' like music, art, computer lab, PE, etc. The teachers we have had in three years have all been first rate and take the time to give each student the attention they need. Beautiful, fairly small neighborhood campus, good afterschool programs including STAR Education enrichment classes.

Our very own private public school! I have never experienced such commitment from teachers, students and parents. Together the school succeeds incredibly and beautifully. It is a shame that these kids do not have a great public middle school to match the experience of Roscomare. Many families are scrambling to find a private middle school to avoid Emerson. Too bad about the Belagio campus - would have made a beautiful middle school campus and we know that there are plenty of committed parents to help make the project work.

This school pushes academics. There is a lot of parent involvement and a lot of fundraisers. This is the most expensive public school in LA Unified. There are art classes and music classes offered which are funded by the school's fundraisers.

A Gem. My son graduated and qualified for a much sought after middle school robotics program! Roscomare prvides a strong Academic program, with the proper amount of nuturing where needed, and exposure to the Arts, with field trips like the Getty Museum and Long Beach Aquarium, as well as fourth and fifth grade trips, IE San Diego Missions. The curriculum provides a wonderful learning experience for the kids, and theme teaching greatly helps the students gain perspective on the topic; History will be teaching about Abraham Lincoln, and English spelling words and composition will simultaneously relate to the same topic! The principal and teaches are dedicated and well trained, and the Booster Club provides needed support with after school enrichment programs and a fabulous annual spring fair and Silent Auction in early June, and a picnic for new kindergarten parents to get acquainted. Our second grade daughter is delighted to be at Roscomare.

When you look at the test scores at this school, remember that they are accomplished without any pre-screening, magnet program or SAS. Can you believe it? Truly all of the students are expected to do well here. If your child is not performing up to par, you will hear about it early and often but constructively with lots of suggestions for how to help. The teachers are amazing. There is tons of enrichment (P.E., music, art) and afterschool help (homework club) and activities (open schoolyard + STAR). If only all the LAUSD schools could be like this...

Great school with a great booster club that makes it all possible. Started in Kindergarten and loved it once we got used to the homework. Lots of homework for a 5 yr. old. It gets better in 1st grade.
