I want to THANK the TEACHERS who have worked with my son. Mrs. Oberholtzer, Mrs. Blanchette, Mrs. Lee, Mrs. Bull !
This school has been on upward trend for years now. Although LAUSD has received a great deal of "bad press", 6th Ave. is a great school to work and be at, just ask the students and teachers. Like any organization, there are a few bad apples that give the school a bad name. Keep an eye on this school as it rises above the negativity that has plagued public education over the past decade.
... my two girls to this school. In the past i had no difficulties with any school my children go to. however, this is school is terrible. Teachers and the teaching theey provide for the school is great but the poor attention and unprofesionalism of the staff. the cafetiria treatment is prisonly i know because i have helped for almost a year and i have seen alot. this is a school to take your kids only if you are in great need immidiate school. this school os in great need of a new staff
I don't want to generalize the whole entire school by just the teachers my child has had. But my experience there has been disappointing. The school has failed my child academically. The staff is use to parents not being that involved, that when they actually are, they consider you as being difficult.
Just moved both of my kids to this school. Both of their teachers are great! I am so happy that the move wasn't as difficult for them. There aren't many extracurricular activities for the children. But the staff is great. The principal is very involved. I always see him around campus, in classrooms.
My child was in Kindergarten last year I found the teachers really work hard with the students. This year my child is in 1st grade and he is in a gifted class and academically he is doing terrific and his teacher is terrific too!
I was impressed at the level of parent involvement. I was able to meet with other parents and hear their expectations. My son did well academically.
Great school, but needs work. Places are small, and some students are not disiplined.
My son was just transferred from another district and my concern was not enough homework. My son is currently in the gifted class and only receives 1 homework assignment, no vocabulary and no reading assignments. I have not received a flyer for any after school programs or sports programs nor one P.T.A or any other parent- staff meeting.
This school has shown some improvements over the last year. They are still struggling with some sort of discipline plan for the students I hope to see these changes within the next school year.
This is a great school. There is a great mixture of races and a lot of teacher/ parent support.
This school is not great yet! But slowly they are making major improvements to better suit their students.
