This is a great school, my daughter has attended this school since kindergarten! ! I'm saddened that this is her last year; when their principal Mr Cunningham died everyone came together!! I love this school!!!
Seventy Fourth Street Elementary is a great public school that offers the children who attend a quality education. My second child is attending Seventy Fourth Street because I approve of the curriculum and teacher quality.
My daughter has attended this school since she was in Kindergarten. Currently she will be going into the 5th grade, her last year! I'm saddened that she is leaving this school because the staff and teachers are very communicative with the parents!!
This school is a great school,infact when my daughter star this school she don't know how to read ,but now she doing great in reading. 74th elementary school is one of the best school ,they have a very good teacher
This is an absolutely magnificent school... particularly the gifted magnet program. It definitely has wonderful, capable, and caring teachers as well as challenging academic programs. I say all of this from personal experience as I attended this school and am now a rather successful junior at Hamilton High School who ended up at John Burroughs for middle school in their amazing gifted program after preparation from 74th street.
What an excellent school with great leadership. Both of my sons was/is part of the Magnet Prog. When my husband passed away, I was surrounded by support from principal and school at a very challenging time for schools. For Mr. Cunningham and teachers to take the time was amazing and our family is forever grateful. The top notch academics is a bonus! My kids score high in classroom and on standardized tests. School is the jewel of neighborhood and district! Carolyn Emery
Great school and excellent principle which mean the school has great leadership. Both of my children have excelled at this school. I am thoroughly impressed with the Magnet Program and the experiences the kids have being a part of the program. If you have child and live in the neighborhood please consider this school you will not be disappointed.
My daughter graduated with honors from the magnet program at 74th Street School. We now live out-of- state, but the memory of exceptional teachers and students and a dedicated, caring administration will forever be in our hearts. 74th Street School, helped prepare my daughter to excell and compete anywhere she goes. We love 74th Street!Magnet!
74th St.Elem. Magnet School has excellent Teachers and an exceptional Principal that is concerned about not only students in the Magnet School, but all students in the school.The Magnet School Coordinator, Title One Coordinator,Reading Coach, Vice Principal,Attendance Coordinator,School Psychologist, Office Staff,Maintenance and Cafeteria Staff, and all Teachers in the regular school are trying very hard to educate all students attending the school.My grandchild attended private schools for three years. She is receiving a private school education in the Magnet Program. What this school needs is more parent involment.The Principal had a parent computer training/learning program to teach parents skils/resources to tutor students for two nights and one evening more training staff was present than parents.
I'm glad I picked 74th street school to send my daughter to. She has improved in her reading, math and other learning skills. 74Th st. School and there teachers really care about there students and like to keep there parents informed about the school and what's going on there. I feel safe and my daughter does as well.
Seventy-Fourth Street school is an excellent school with a great staff. The teachers strive to keep parents informed of their children's progress, but parents have to also make an effort as well. My child had a great learning experience there. I highly recommend this school. Mr. Cunningham and his administration were doing a great job with the students when my son was there. The teachers care and the students are encouraged to help each other.
I'm a parent of 2 children that are in the gifted magnet program that I think rivals many private, preparatory schools programs. They have excellent teachers and state of the art technology. The children that culminate from the gifted magnet program are often excepted into the elite private schools or other gifted magnets. The school as a whole is getting better with each year. The turnover of teachers is decreasing. Overall I would recommend Seventy-Fourth Street School as a school on the move.
74th is a classic example of an elementary school going downhill in the last decade. The former principal, Mrs. Hayes, was a woman of real class and leadership. Since her retirement, the school has been transformed more and more into a typical inner-city lockdown. The quality of the teachers in the (formerly) Highly Gifted Magnet is superb-you will not find better teachers in LAUSD or around the world, but teachers outside are only average. It's tragic that an excellent example of fine education in an urban setting has fallen victim to overcrowding, 'bungalowization,' and rigid attitudes.
I think that 74th street has been a great start for my children. They really enjoy going to school and enter acting in all the many different activities that we can be included in. Me and my husband enjoy how the parents are included in the learning styles that the school offers.
Seventy-Fourth Street is an excellent for any student K-5! My daughter (Tessalyn) had a wonderful 4th grade experience. Her world was broadened by the exposures outside of class. Also, our fabulous 4th grade teacher (Ms. M) emphasizes reading and excellence in all areas. I applaud 74th Street!
I have had the best teacher - parent relationship with my children's teachers. I would recommend this school to all of my friends.
