This is my daughter school start from first grade to fifth . Everything was fine until new principle, who have big power that she doesn't qualify because she have only one ear. This school should have investigate or audit and report staff. Now I am not recommend this school and Mr. Rome is the best principle ,he deserves to got promoted...

Happy parent with her daughter in 5th grade. We have been so very pleased throughout the years with this school. My daughter came in in 1st grade and we have had a great experience throughout. Mr. Rome, the school's principal is fantastic. He's a caring, involved principal. The Vice-Principal... had no idea the school had one till 4th grade. Still haven't met her. The teachers are caring and the NASA sponsored events are a blast. It's a teacher/principal involved school and I think anyone would do well to send their children here. We'll miss it dearly when my daughter graduates in June.

My son jus started kidergarten and we are new to the schoo but I have to say that I amver impressed with the organization and structure that is set up to make it easy for parents and safe for the children. The pricipal seems to genuinly care and in the mornings he has been seen outside helping to unload the kids from their cars to keep the traffic flowing and kids safe. I have attended the PTA meeting and am very impressed by the amoun of parent support. I am vey pleased with my choice of sending my son here.

We were so grateful to be apart of this school for my son's 4th and 5th grade education. I was part of the Student Site Council so I got to see the inside workings of this amazing school...caring people starting from the principal, Mr. Rome and Ms. Arias who work so well together only wanting what is best for the students. My prayer is for more LAUSD schools to use this school as a model.

My son just graduated from Vintage this past June. He attended Vintage from 3rd grade until 5th. I found that the school is excellent, it starts from the top. The principal, Mr. Rome, sets the tone for high standards, high demands for student character and encourages team work from all staff as well as students. We strive to live by example - and this gentleman leads by example. He spends enormous amounts of time at the school and the various family and student acitivites taht take past after hours. The teachers strive to encourage the children to extend themselves past their comfort zones and to produce work that makes the student proud of their efforts. I was a member of the PTA - (I have been a member of two other schools PTA as well) but in comparison the families and parents involved really work very hard to put on fabulous family oriented events that encourage families to meet eachother and feel as though the school is a second home. The amount of parent volunteers is wonderful - the school enocurages you to volunteer but again you watch the other parents and you can't help but to want to be a part of such a dynamic environment. Give it a try - it is a GEM!!!!

Vintage Magnet is a school where all staff care. My 19 & 16 yr. old kids were in Vintage & now my 11 yr. old graduated. The graduation was emotional because my older kids were there too & the big Vintage phrase is "once a Vinty always a Vinty". I am pleased to say that this is a great school. All the teachers care about each & every child. The trips, activities & memories are just amazing. The experience in Vintage was a positive & great one. The scores of this school are very high & the result is with our children. The principal is an amazing principal. He came to Vintage when my 16 yr.old daughter was in 4th grade. He cares about the parent needs & wants & listens. Until today, I am in touch with some of my kids teachers.

I love this school because there are a lot of people who make it a fun place to learn. The principal has a great leadership. Teachers are very helpful, caring and well educated. Parents volunteer their time to make school great place. School staffs work so hard and clean. Cafeteria staffs are nice. It is a safe place to learn. When it comes to activities, school staffs and parents cooperate well.

My kids have been going to this school for a total of 7 years (one child just graduated). I love everything about this school! The principal is amazing-he's at every school event. The teachers are caring and really make an effort to make sure each child has a great education. I have 2 years left in this school, but I know I will miss the "neighborhood feel" to the school. Teachers and principal are awesome. I just wish the budget cuts wouldn't keep hindering the teacher's ability to teach-it's not the school's doing though. They are real troopers and I am so grateful to everything this school has given my kids.

Vintage Magnet has caring, hard working, and dedicated teachers who collaborate on curriculum and lesson delivery to provide effective instruction so that all students succeed. Teachers are supported by parents, administrators, and staff members in their mission to educate Vintage students.

My older son just culminated from Vintage and is sincerely sorry to leave. He greatly enjoyed participating in the Lego Robotics league, making (who are sure to be) lifelong friends and yes, enjoyed the academics immensely. Encouraged by the JPL and NASA-inspired activities and events, he talks of attending MIT in the future and pursuing a career in math, science or technology. My younger son truly loves going to school each day and enjoys "teaching" Mommy all he learned in class that day. Many thanks to the incredible instructors, as well as the ever-supportive and approachable principal.

I wish I knew about this school when my eldest started school. I'm glad he was able to spend the last 2 years of his elementary school there. The teachers are amazing. Mr. Rome, the principal, is one of a kind! My son learned to build robots, and program them to do certain tasks during lego robotics. He enjoyed being a play leader to the younger kids. My daughter was able to get in last year for 4th grade and had fun helping out in the cafeteria. I like the idea of teaching them to be responsible and helpful. It builds confidence and self esteem. The education is excellent in this school, so the waiting list is long. My advice is to start applying when they are in kindergarten. I highly recommend this school.

This school has gone over and beyond my expectations. Teachers and Staff are second to none. My children are proud to be Vintage students and I am a proud Vintage parent! NASA nights have become fond family memories.....

Vintage Magnet is an amazing school! The principal really listens, to not only parents, but the children as well. I have two children, one graduated this year and one will graduate next year and they have had the best teachers. My husband and I are 100% satisfied with the academic progress of our kids!

My daughter started Vintage Magnet for 1st Grade...coming from a Private School we were extremely impressed at the way Vintage Magnet treated her and the teachers as well. Even through the after school care, YDP. We look forward to 2nd grade and shortly sending our 5 year old when she finishes Kindergarten at Gledhill. Mr. Rome is wonderful and has a excellent Staff working for him. Very attention to detail. GO VINTAGE!!!!

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.
