They should have better lunches for the kids.There has also been BULLYING in that school!


Posted July 7, 2012

My child enrolled here in 1st grade. She's started from non-speaking English student, but after 3rd grade she was put in gifted program. She finished her 4th- 5th grade with perfect score in CST. I could say this school is excellent in all aspects especially the quality of the TEACHERS, not only the knowledge but also their effort to push every student up to the front.. WE LOVE THIS SCHOOL.

My son attended this school from September 2010 to February 2011. In those few months, this school did not show me as a parent that they care about the security of my child, lest, bullies are present as well as open-for-all facility. It was a bad decision on my part to enroll my son in this school. I hope other students and parents do not experience what our family did with this school.

My nephew goes to this school, which is the reason why I want to sponsor this school. My nephew seem to be happy with his teachers and developed a disciplined approach to school work. He has talked about activities but not much. I sense that there is need for more extra-curricular activities to stimulate students. I usually take my nephew to sports events, but a 'camp' program during school break may be helpful if the school can arrange it.

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.
