Young Oak Kim Academy 4

Best school I've every worked at. Very clean campus. Single Gender Classrooms - either All Boys or All Girls. Excellent learning environment for the Girls but needs to work on cultivating an environment that will better serve the boys. Average level pre-teen rudeness at worst NO gangs or Violence. STEM school, Science department works with USC Robotics, Biomechanics, Engineer students who come teach the kids. Excellent variety of P.E. equipment/activities Archery, Hockey, Bowling, etc and the kids get to go on Surfing Field Trips. There's a free after school program from 3:30 to 6:30 with a great staff and program director who the kids like and respect. The students have ADVISORY class where they stay with the same "homeroom" teacher for the whole 3 years and get counseling on Social, Emotional, Academic Skills. There's also a GEAR up for College Program on campus. The school itself has a controversial architectural designs (I actually like it) But I will say it definitely serves to eliminate the "hiding places" that many, many other middle schools have that allows for kids to do things like smoke, or fool around. I plan to send my daughter to this school.

Do not send your kids to this school. There is a lot of bullying that goes on at this school. When bullying is reported the students get a slap in the wrist e.i. after school detention. The school will never suspend a student for bullying or being disruptive in the class. They are only concerned about money coming into the school via the state.The teachers are clearly burnt out because they cannot kick disruptive students out of their class. . I blame this on the principal who only seems interested in collecting a pay check, and doesn't want to know whats going on with the classes or the students because when there is an issues he informs parents to speak with the counselors who looked burnt out themselves.

This school is very amazing! STEAM Labs and the school is well organized. Students should go to this school. This school is meant to improve student average in her knowledge and skills, and fluent reading through proficiency. Successful making students smart and smarter. Homework is important, but the art of listening, focusing, and doing what the person is suppose to do is the best thing.

Excellent school with so much support for student achievement and personal development. Lots of technology here, and the STEM Lab, Library, Dance Studio, and Rock Climbing Wall are very cool places on campus. It is a safe campus with a very dedicated staff. Students are fortunate to learn in single-gender classrooms and to receive so much STEM-oriented education. Highly recommended middle school!
