High teacher turnover is a killer in middle school. My kid has had 2 different math teachers, 3 different Drama teachers, 3 different science teachers and this is all in one year. Classes are crowded and problem students get away with outlandish behavior. There are some great kids and a few talented and effective teachers and staff members. Unfortunately there is almost no parent community that is engaged, 'problem kids' sense this , and get away with murder. One indicator is how few reviews there are on this site. I truly hope the school improves and makes a better environment for the teachers and the students who are there to learn, but we will not be coming back.
A blessing to my entire family. Dedicated teachers, organized office staff and administration. Accessible and ready to help your child be the best she or he can be. Tough at first of you have come out of the traditional LAUSD school system. But clear direction and support from teachers and staff. Teachers all hold office hours so kids can come to them for help when necessary. The academics, delivered by well planned and creative educators. Fantastic.
