Caring and motivated teachers (1st grade). Too much HW in my opinion but that's the system not the school. I just don't believe it advances learning. Wish for a music and more art. Nurturing environment but hope for more diversity in the future. This school can be an even greater neighborhood school if the neighborhood families jump aboard.

Amazing school that offers a nurturing environment, caring teachers, and a stimulating environment. The class sizes are small, so the teachers really get to know their students. This school offers a great sense of community. There are also so many exciting field trips that really exemplify fun and education to the kids.

I have a child in the second who has been at Nora Sterry since kindergarten. She left another school to attend Nora Sterry. I also have older children who have attended other schools, so I think I have good idea what makes a good school. I like almost everything about this school - the teachers, the principal and the students. One thing I noticed about this school immediately was that the teachers genuinely like Nora Sterry. The principal has remembered my child by name since day one. Parent involvement is evolving at this school - Nora Sterry recently started a Booster Club and now holds regular parent meetings. I have only one problem with this school - drop off/parking is complicated.

My son has gone to this Nora Sterry for kindergarten and first grade. Both teachers (Mrs. Frasco and Ms. Reese) are wonderful, caring, and genuinely concerned about their students. They actively encourage parents' involvement, always welcoming us into the classroom. Their test scores are low, but they are doing the best they can with the devastating budget cuts. Most impressive is the teachers' and the principal's commitment to the kids.

Phenomenal school with wonderful, caring teachers who display a genuine concern for the future of their young minds.

What a great school! My daughter attended the Pre-K program with Ms. Anna and Kindergarten with Mrs. Frasco. They were both excellent teachers! Keep up the great work, you got my little girl off to a great start! The principal is great... I love how involved and friendly Mrs. Smith is! This is certainly a hidden gem in West LA. It has the feel of a private school due to it's size and teacher-student interaction. They even offered free tutoring after class to students who wanted to get ahead! Excellent! I wish she could continue here, but we are leaving the area! Keep up the great work!

My child attends this school currently and his teachers progress with him has greatly improved. The Principal and VP are what make this school, especially when 'parent-to-teacher' interaction isn't working very well. My only concern, and the concern of my husband, are the behavioral problems that go unnoticed. There is also a member of staff in the office that my child is timid to approach or even see which puts my child in discomfort some of his days. It would be nice if this was addressed, I am sure my child isn't the only one suffering with this staff member.

Nora Sterry is a great school. I attended k-6th grade.Which the school now only goes up to 5th grade now. My son now attends Nora Sterry and he loves it. The old principle was very intimidating but putting your foot down, scares him off. Luckily now there is a new sheriff in town and she's great. Great communication,attentive and caring.The kids love her and the vice principal as well. They are both wonderful. I highly recommend this beautiful school. They have wonderful murals beautiful settings. Wonderful teachers, staff, children and education.

Nora Sterry is a jewel, finally getting the recognition it deserves. This month the Riordan Foundation has recognized Nora Sterry as one of the top four improving elementary schools in all of LAUSD, a real turn around success story. The award finalists have not been officially announced, yet, but I can say that parents are excited and proud. We have seen in our classrooms what the Riordan Foundation study has proven through their research and analysis of student performance data. The quality of instruction is the top priority at Nora Sterry. The commitment shows in the quality of teaching, reassuring commitment to discipline, and the stellar and consistent improvement in test scores. What is needed is more parent involvement and student body diversity. Families looking for a quality neighborhood school, where they can make meaningful contributions towards a very deserving public school have a real gem in Nora Sterry.

my daughter attends preschool and she has progressed immensely this past 6 months she has been enrolled. The pre-k side is diligent, professional, caring, and right on target. Her teachers are wonderful. This is her second preschool shes attended because there was a waiting list for nora sterry and it took almost 2 years for her to get in at sterry. comparing both I give 10 stars to nora sterry. Good work Nora sterry!

Nora Sterry is a great little school. My son went there for K(amazing teacher) and 1st(solid teacher). I'm going to have to agree with other parents though--although I think the Principal cares and works very hard to keep academic standards high, his interaction with parents and his staff needs some attention. We were discouraged to meet with him and only after insisting he see us to talk about our child, the experience was uncomfortable and intimidating. We have since moved our child for many minor reasons but our experience with the Principal pushed us to make the move.

My child is enrolled in the fourth grade and her progress is extraordinary. The teacher is very interactive and available to the students as well as to the parents. The school principal, vice principal, and the administrators in the office work together as a team to create the wonderful community at Nora Sterry Elementary School!

My daughter has been a student at Nora Sterry since pre-k,she is now in the third grade. The school is very small I don't believe that it gets as much credit as it should. They have great programs and the teachers don't mind going that extra mile to help the students. The only problems that I have with this school is that the principal don't seem to careand also parent follow through.

This school has great potential, but is being hampered by it's ineffectual principal.

Absolutely terrible. Behavior with the children is a huge issue. The principle lacks communication and empathy skills toward parents; the teachers don't look happy. At least the after school star program is nice.

I think this school is great for the budget limitations that this and all Los Angeles public Schools are facing. The fact is , corners will be cut everywhere and anywhere. The entire staff is caring & dedicated despite the problems it faces. My only concern is the lack of funding for teachers assistants and how that affects the safety of the students. I assume however that you will face this issue at any public school within the LA district.

Excellent Pre-K program which is available for children who are at least 4 years old. The program is free and volunteering is required to participate in the program. Ms. Carolyn was a great instructor for my preschooler and exhibited patience, love, concern and understanding in addition to her fabulous teaching skills. I can't wait for my son to be able to attend this wonderful Pre-K program.

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.
