This is a wonderful school: big, clean campus in a safe neighborhood, library, huge computer lab, on-site cafeteria, fantastic pre-k program, SAS program, and quality teachers! It greatly improved a few years ago with a fabulous principal. However, the school could use a more engaged principal who is better at building school morale and a sense of community among parents.

Plummer just started a PTA group. It will be nice to get support from a strong national and state group like PTA that advocates for our children.

A gem of a school that is slowly going back down. Dr. Barrett and staff worked hard to improve plummer, my two oldest sons graduated from plummer 2 years ago and had no problems grades k-6. This year my daughter is in fourth grade, she tell me at home that the school is out of control and that incidents always occur. what is startling is that there is NO DISCIPLINE , my kids tell me problematic students arent punished or face a consequence they are just left out to roam freely. principal is overwhelmed with academic and behavioral problems.

Can someone tell me who is a good 1st grade teacher at Plummer? My son is shy and responds much better at this age to a female teacher.

We keep calling the school, no one picks up the phone. One time they picked up, and the person answering the phone didn't have a clue about anything. She wanted to transfer me to someone else, she kept calling her name, the other person wouldn't answer her back. They don't even have an answering machine so they can take messages and return phone calls. What a disorganized school, and parents actually send their' children here? You can tell a lot about a school from the way they run their' office. This one gets a big fat zero!

I would like to commend the teachers of my kids, Mr. A Velasquez and Ms. E. Hampel for all their hard work and dedication this year. They have both shaped the minds of my schoolers to become a better person and better learners. Plummer ES should be very proud and lucky to have such quality educators!

Kudos! to ALL safety valet Volunteers. We feel safe and secure.every morning now. I can now drop off my kids from the valet and the traffic flow have improved a lot since they implemented this safety valet program...

With the new Principal comes new worries! She is not as TOUGH as Dr. Barrett & has brought school moral to a new low. Stay away from this school! The leadership is clearly not what it used to be. The new principal is incredibly overwhelmed and unsure of how to take care of this gem of a school. She seriously needs to be replaced. A school that once used to bring pride is now at a new low! So sad.

My son is new into this school, he is a transferee started last March the first thing I noticed is the school safety it's way far from the school where my son from at Wilshire Park Elementary LA I salute the principal and the PTA staff how dedicated they are it come to the safety of the children especially in the morning. And you hardly see the principal Mr. Franco not to be outside to make sure the safety of their student. Why I mention this because the staff off this school show exemplinary action and concern, and that i slowly notice to the new principal of Plummer Ms.Ibia Gomez I hope this is not only for now but it's a good start to build rapport to the parents and school staff. And also I hope they would open more rest room especially near to the lower levels. My son got accident because rest room is to far away from their classroom, he's now in room 31. And for the teachers my son teacher in 1st grade I forgot the name she is in room 23 she ok only is that she is always late to pick her student in the field. And now in 2nd grade his new teacher Ms. Amaya don't now her yet that much but so far with our last meeting she is impressive hoping for more !!!

As I mentioned before, the truth must have hurt someone. No one is denying that mr escudera is a good teacher. So is mr velazquez. I rated a five for teacher ratings. Good teachers doesn't necessarily mean a good school.

To the parent that wrote "no parent out of their right mind is going to" you must be taking your child to a diffrent plummer. As far as my child has been going to plummer there has been no such problems, maybe some traffic after school but that is about it. When it comes to education there doing great and more. My son couldnt have a better teacher ( Mr. Escudero) he has done an amazing job teaching my son. My son loves to go to school and do homework. Mr. Escudero makes sure to teach and help his students. I couldnt ask for a better caring teacher. The staff and everyone at plummer are great. Thank you Plummer Teachers your doing a great job. Oh and am not a staff I am a real parent. Keep up the good work.

Plummer has been improving each year since my children have there. They have raved about all of their teachers. Both of my daughters had Mr. Mullen and absolutely loved him! He made their learning fun. They couldn't wait to go to school each day because of him. He and the other great teachers at Plummer deserve alot of praise.

This year I took my student out of private school, because Plummer has been getting such rave reviews. My child was placed in Mr. Lula's 4th grade class. What a pleasure it has been to see my child excited about school again. The state testing finished today and my son is so excited. His teacher, prinicipal, and coaches have inspired him to achieve and believe in himself. We know he is advanced and can't wait for his scores. The gifted program at Plummer is how the private school should run. Thank you so much, Plummer.

I agree with the person who mentioned Mr. Mullen and him being wonderful. He teaches extremely well and makes personal connections with each of his students. He motivates students like no other teacher my son has ever had. The school is getting better and better, and I am proud to have my child there.

I am extremely satisfied with the quality of education my children receive at Plummer Elementary. The office staff is friendly and it's obvious that the teachers really care about their students. The Principal is extremely knowledgeable and the Assistant Principals are incredible. My children always rave about the new Assistant Principal, Mr. Dyen. I hope he stays at Plummer for a long time!

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.
