My son is in the third grade and enjoys going to Mayall. He started going here in 2nd grade. he has learned a lot from his teachers. The principal is very hands on and makes her presence known from assisting in morning drop off car lane to saying hello to all at the school events. I would recommend this school.

My son is in 5th grade in Mrs. Dubois' class. He is extremely shy and has blossomed in her class. He enjoys coming to school and learning. He goes home excited every day to tell me about what he has done and learned. What a gem! I can only hope his middle school teachers will be as great!

I have two grandchildren attending Mayall Street Elementary. This is my grandson's third year there. His kindergarten and first-grade teachers were very different in their teaching styles, and both provided excellent learning experiences for him. My granddaughter started kindergarten this year, and we are very impressed with her teacher and her organized, caring approach to her students and their families. Both of my grandchildren's teachers have gotten this year off to a positive start for us. To make my rating "excellent," there would have to be a nurse available full time to address the medical needs of one of my grandchildren. Although it is a LAUSD decision--rather than a Mayall decision--to not provide the care that is due him by law, it does affect our interaction with school personnel who try to accommodate his needs but are not always able to do so.

I'm a mayall graduate! I love this school so much! The teachers are very friendly! I miss u mrs. Shellenberger! The lessons are very challenging, and the pupils are very friendly! And most, the principal, mrs.linda Kim, she has done so much to help the school improve. I recommend mayall to elementary kids because I know it will help them have a better and safer education. I thank you mayall for helping me stay strong and live happy!

Our experience at Mayall St Elem was great. The teacher my daughter had for Kindergarden had great communication through email and sent home letters. My daughter learned so much from her and the TA. Mrs. Kim, the principal is so involved with making a difference at the school and trying to get parents involved. She's so cute in showing school spirit. I know she's trying her best to better the school. It was great disappointment to know they were not approved for Magnet Program, but what did you expect when only 5 parents showed support in the meeting! The principal and teachers did such a great presentation, but sad to see only about 5 parents in the meeting. My only negative is LA's Best, my daughter was in the program and as much as she loved her coaches the only down fall was "homework time." I understand there is 1 coach to about 24 students but having some of the older kids as "helpers" only made things worst when it came to "homework time." My daughter would come home with incorrect homework, so when it came for her to correct it at home she would be upset because she had to do homework again. Reason why coach couldn't help, she was on the phone. Very disappointing.

Our experience with this school was a "train-wreck." The principal sent out three memos - one before the school year began and two within the first week of school. Each memo contained misspellings, grammatical errors, and poor sentence structure. (And, this was from an educator!) Besides lunch and recess, my son could not tell me what he had done - and my kid will tell you everything! As it turns out, he had done nothing in class! He was never called upon nor addressed in any manner. After the second day, I lifted up his shirt and found bug bites all over his body. One of the other children in the classroom had a case of bedbugs and "shared" it with his friends! I had to clean everything my son's clothing had come in contact with. The after-school program was a complete joke. I was even reprimanded for arriving before 6:00pm to pick up my son because (as I was told) "it would affect their funding." However, after filling out a few documents to acknowledge I was taking my son out of school "early" it dawned on me that I was never asked for my identification! I could have walked out with any child! It took less than a week for us to realize that this wasn t working.

I used to have 2 daughters at this school and I don't have problems with the principal. But this year with the new principal , she's not that good as others. She doesn't know how to communicate with the teachers and parents. Every time you complain is not addressed properly and not corrected. No good for the student to stay here as long she is the principal.

The school is pretty good but the after school program is AWFUL! If you have any other option choose that because the L.A's Best staff does NOT properly supervise the children and certainly does NOT help with homework. I'm starting to think my first grader would be safer being watched my a pack of wolves!

My son has been attending their preschoo/ prek programm all year and has loved it. His teacher, Siu Solomon, is great. He has learned so much. Ms. Solomon is a great assett to the school and I was so sorry to hear she is no longer going to be there. Teachers like her are one in a million. She is caring, welll informed and is great in keeping parents involved and up to date of their kids.

Mayall Street Elementary is a good school overall. With the limited resources they have from the state, they do a pretty good job of educating our children. It is unfortunate that there have been some silly acts committed by mindless students but a lot of the blame has to go to the parents of these kids who view the school as nothing more than free day care. Education doesn't end when the final bell rings at 2:24pm. Parents have to realize they have to do their part at home in teaching their children morals and proper ways to behave. For the most part, the parents of Mayall students are very active in their childrens education. I would have to say that this school year has been pretty good for the most part. Every school whether public or private always has their fair share of morons and Mayall is no exception.

I have 2 children at Mayall, 1st experience with my eldest has been wonderful, even through the change of principals. As for the experience with my 2nd, well let's just say teachers are quick to say children are ADHD if the kids are a little rambunctious. The teachers are overwhelmed with the large classroom sizes & therefore the kids suffer. I have to remind myself that communication is the KEY to a child's success & the office staff & principal are there for when needed for my kids & children

My son is in the preschool program and at only 4yrs old was able to be put in a choke hold and kicked to the ground by 3 boys in the 2nd grade who were supposed to be supervised by the after school program staff. I was in a discussion w/the teacher while this happened. When I noticed my son being "jumped" by the group of kids I quickly ran over to intervene. The staff is never after finding out who was supposed to be watching the older kids, they were supposed to be sent to the office for discipline which also did not happen. I went to the office myself to complain to the principle who politely informed me that the only thing they could do was leave a message with the kids parents who assaulted my son. The principal then informed me that it was my fault for having my son in the playground after school. Mind you, I was in a teacher conference and actively watching my son. It only took a few seconds for the kids to go from kicking the ball around to kicking my son around. Once again the kids who beat my 4yr old up are in 3rd grade! I highly do not recommend this school. The principal was completely indifferent about the entire ordeal.

One of my sons is in fourth grade. He cannot stop talking about all the wonderful science he is learning with Ms. Hernandez and Mrs. Bliven. They use technology in their classes and are wonderful. My younger son cannot wait til he goes to fourth grade.

I am a parent of two going into our third year at Mayall. It is a great school, great teachers and no matter what anyone says, you will be the only judge between that teacher and your kid. The Teachers are outstanding and they care for ALL the children. If you are considering Mayall, you have made a great choice!

I have a daughter who attends Mayall currently & we appreciate the improvements the new principal has made & especially appreciate the hard work the teachers dedicate to the students. I would like to say specifically Ms. Shojinaga and Ms. Martinez have made wonderful lasting impressions and values with my daughter that she will take with her as an adult

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
