My Granddaughter has been attending this school since 2nd grade. She was able to get in quickly, however it is very difficult for a child to get in without entering through Kindergarten. So, if you want your child to attend this school get on the wait list for Kinder, now. She is currently a 5th grader. Overall, it's a great school. They definitely gear these children to prepare for college. They don't compromise, no matter how much you complain about their rigorous curriculum, but they will work with a family to ensure your child is successful at every grade level. If you contact them and they know you're serious about your child's education and social status, they will set up a meeting immediately for you to voice your concerns. They will address all concerns in a timely fashion and will follow up with your child to ensure they are in a better place. It is located smack dab in the middle of the Pico/Union district of Los Angeles, but they take great security measures to ensure your child is safe throughout the day.
I have a 5th grader and a Kindergartner attending Equitas and I'm extremely pleased with everything about this school.This is a very structurized and disciplined school which is a wonderful thing.Their teachers are AMAZING!!They really care about my boys' long term goals and are able to have an ongoing communication with me about my boy's academic progress. Thanks to them my children are performing above grade level. It's wonderful to hear your children talk about what university they would like to attend,at such a young age.This is a school that I forever will be referring people to. I can go on and on saying wonderful things about Equitas and their staff but with all reality it's different to experience it for yourself, So I encourage everyone to look into the school, call for information or even take a tour. I guarantee you will be very pleased. I AM!!!
My child has bearly three weeks in Equitas and I know we've made a great decision by transferring him. The staff does everything to make you feel right at home and in these short weeks they've improved my child's math work which is a plus because he's now confident enough when it comes to his homework. I would recommend this school to everybody it's a change you won't regret.
My beautiful Maya is a 5th grader at Equitas Academy and for the first time she hasn't complained or made up an excuse for her to miss school. She has gone through so many schools which include a LAUSD public school, Private Catholic School and one other charter school and none have been able to challenge until we found Equitas. It has been a blessing for my Maya and myself. She has friends, loves her teachers and knows she is able to speak to the principle whenever she has a concern. We're both adjusting to the long hours of class but much worth it with the help of my partner and stepdad Henry. Could not do it by myself thanks for the support from everyone at Equitas!
This is an ABSOLUTELY excellent school. My son has been there for 4 years now and I could not have found a better school for him to go to. The faculty is wonderful, the after school program is top notch, the children are very well behaved and do well academically, they set strong goals to reach College. The whole school has an atmosphere that you know will be good for your kid/s. I was also happy to see that their testing scores are magnificent. Thank YOU Equitas!
Best school for my daughter, She has Learned so much from this school.This school have teached my daughter how to read,how to listen, respect other people and not to be boiling .
Equitas Academy is an excellent school with committed staff and teachers! I am very happy with the academic program, organic food, and college emphasis! We are pleased and excited for the continued success and growth of Equitas!!!!!!!!!
