Langdon has made a 180 degree turnaround the past couple years. With a new Principal and a group of highly dedicated teachers, our student CST test scores have SOARED to 756 (a gain of 100 points in two years). There is no longer that feeling that Langdon is a "bad school" from years ago. Everyone can feel it's now a positive and fun place to go to school. Of course, we don't miss any of those old and burned out teachers that transferred out of Langdon to open that new performing arts school. Langdon is now a great school!

Personally, i think that the fault for what is going on in Langdon is the District's. I attended this elementary and have grown up within the LAUSD district and i can vouch for the Teachers and staff there. They work super hard for their students, who are their number 1 priority, but they are very limited on the resources they can offer and use themselves for the students. Like any other school, Langdon depends on the support of the community and the effort of the everyday work that the teachers and staff put in. Over all, langdon is a great school with VERY dedicated teachers and hard working students.

The school has made termendous improvement thanks to the principal, teachers, and the parents. Everyone came together to focus on our main goal, the students.

I worked as a teacher at Langdon Ave Elementary school and am sad to say that this school is really quite lacking in nearly all areas. The students are treated poorly by many of the teachers who use very negative dicipline. There are no programs to bridge the gap between home and school. In my opinion, there is potential for children to be hurt due to the lack of supervision on the yard. I found the principle to be dismissive of major issues and not very supportive of the teachers. The one good thing about this school? The music program! What a wonderful thing for these students.
