my daughter went to this school last year. She loved it. The teachers are okay but alot of the students are out of control and the principal did not nothing about it. But this year the school will be a charter school and I am really happy about that.

I taught at St. Gerard's before I left to teach in L.A. Unified School District (needed more income), but the Archdiocese standards and the level of parental support place St. Gerard's so far ahead of all of the schools in L.A.U.S.D. I knew this from years ago also, because I was also a student at St. Gerard's way back when. It's like the Westside's best-kept secret in the field of elementary education.

This school is terrible, the teachers dont teach discipline to the children what so ever, the children are rude and lack respect of others. In addition, the education here is one of the worst! Please reconsider moving your child to a better school!

i highly do not recomend your children to come to this school. It lacks discipline and academic needs. The principal shows lack of good judgement and care for the students.

As far as parental involvement I do agree that it is lacking. However, I feel it is not the school's fault. The school sends out numerous letters and makes volunteer opportunities known. As for me and my children I have had a positive experience in St. Gerard. My only complaint is with the teaching staff, they seem to have the ability to correctly educate but some lack the classroom management skills that are sorely needed in the profession.

My children have all gone through this school and honestly I have seen it go downhill. I am not happy with the academic program they offer. The teaching staff tries but I really am not happy and would not recommend this school.

I absolutely do not recomend this school. My children are so behind that they have to retake thier classes when they went to another school. It's very dissapointing. The school has no dicipline towards the teachers and the school. I think it is a waste of time and money for my children's education.

As a parent, my son was able to enroll at the school as a transfer student. there are parents complaining that the school fails to meet certain standards along with expectations. Schools in Los Angeles get a bad rap simply because of economics. Compared to other school within the city of Los Angeles, University high is one of the better. These children are getting a decent education so that they will be able to college bound and pursue their dreams.

This is a great school with great teachers. The discipline used to be a problem, but the staff has nipped in the butt. I feel my kids are learning and doing great. My son just got accepted into a great high school. This school has become a great little community.

This is my second year at this school, and I like the principal, and I love the teachers. Most are encouraging, and great.

I'm new to the school, but I have to agree with the above parent. I would not tell anyone to enroll a child here. The students are disruptive. No respect for school property or others. I am so aggravated with the lack of quality education. There is a nice art program and a couple of sports offered.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend this school to another parent. I wish I had known this before, that is why this web site is so important. I believe the only reason they have any enrollment is because of economics.Parent involvement is nonexistent.

This is my first year and so far it has been wonderful. My son is in 8th grade and all the teachers are very supportive.
