Staff are dedecaded and caring of my sons education. They need to inprove in the time manner they sent out notice. In all its a great school.
I am very disappointed in smcsc Elementary, but what should I have expected, the school is in a poor neighborhood, in my opinion, there isn't much interest in whether or not these children succeed - I am taking my son out of this school. The LAUSD need to change the admistration no the teachers.
This school is getting better. The last few years were ok but this last year was horrible. My son was in the middle of unhappy teachers and staff. His teachers seem to care more about fighting with other teachers and administration than her own students. His two teachers had almost 50 kids! The class was crazy. The kids would go crazy. My son did more art projects then learn. His teachers are not coming back. To many students in his class. My son said he would see teachers whispering making fun of each other and be very rude to each other. I was told many of these teachers are leaving. I am very happy. There are teachers there that are really good. I am keeping my son and daughter there next year. I know some parents are moving there kids because people are saying really bad things and lies. I am really happy with my daughters teacher. She is in second grade.
I read reviews from parents online, the reviews seem to be really true. Many people report bad experiences, but there seem to be a lot of parents complaining about rude and disrespectful administration staff. Charter school division should to something about this issue The school should be have a new administration for 2012.
The Principal, and office staff special the front desk are not at all professional. Im not recoment this school Unprofessional manners.
My experience with Santa Monica Boulevard Community Charter School, has been terrible! I feel sorry for the very few good teachers that still teach there (There are far more bad Apples than good.) I would never recommend this school to any parent. The Principal, and office staff are not at all professional...
I agree with one of the parents here, about the child disciplinary setting rules at the school. It needs to be improving. There are neglects to directive kids bulling other children in the recreational area and disrespecting teachers inside classroom. to the school directors please take actions.
My 5 year old son attended this school in kinder. I regretted ever thinking this school was in any shape adequate for my son. The only reason I put him at SMC is because it was my 2nd option due to the long waiting lists that I was on for way better rated schools. So I guess 2 out of 10 was my best option at the time. To begin with I believe that the curriculum is up to date and they are appropriately being taught what is expected. But in regards to child school manners I dislike how this school neglects to discipline kids that are bullies and trouble makers in the playground and in class. The school directors and principals were less than helpful and at times never reachable. I completely regret putting my son in this school. Dont make the same mistake I made!
I enrolled my kid to this school during his kinder year. I was happy because his teacher Ms. Putnam care for my kid. Their education level also is the best. My kid came home and reading, spelling. after 5month at this school, my kids show interst in books and writitng. taken by them day by day Ms Putnam is excellent. I would recommend her at this school to anyone in my family or friends thankssssssss.
As a health care professional who has worked closely with several students in the school, I am impressed by the quality of the teachers, including the special education staff, and the school psychologist
I'm a parent of 2 children, my daughter graduated last year and she not only had a great time, but she was challenged by her teachers. She was involved with student council and choir. Because of everyone's hard work and dedication she was offered a scholarship for Middle School. I am greatfull for the attention the teachers give my children. My son is in second grade and he too is being challenged and stimulated everyday. The Best School Ever.
My daughter absolutely loves this school. Mr. Veals is a wonderful teacher and is very engaged with the kids..
I absolutely love the teachers at this school. They work very hard wand seem to really care for their students. My daughter looks forward to going everyday. Her current teacher, Mr. ibarra, is very nice and hard working,
Santa Monica Blvd Community Charter has all of the makings of, not only a great school for children, but also parents. The fact that it's teachers and staff provide a good education,wounderfull programs, activities in and out of school and a safe environment for my four year old pre-schooler daughter, puts me at great ease when I drop her off.I love the fact that my little girl doesn't understand the concept of vacation because she wants to go to school everyday and that is all credited to the the great staff, or our second family at SMBCCS.
My daughter absolutly LOVES going to school because of her experiences since preschool. Ms. Marcia made such an impact in my daughters life.. and I look foward to sending my 2nd daughter to pre k soon. thank you to all the staff and the principal at SMCC you guys are wonderful.
My daughter is in Kindergarten here, and she's learned so much! Ms. Munoz is awesome, and I feel like they have a really aggressive reading program for the young ones. They also encourage them to do special projects on their own where they can get extra homework credit and my daughter loves that! I'd recommend this school, and I HAVE recommended it to others.
