After a year of enrolling my child in this school, I was greatly disappointed with their inferior academics, complacent staff and incompetent leadership. The sad reality... most subject matter can learned directly from the internet (KhanAcademy.org and YouTube.com). In short, Vintage Magnet equal High Hype and Low Substance. In the following scholastic year, I placed my child in a private school system resulting in meeting and exceeding my expectations on academics and personal development. Parents... do yourself a favor and avoid the acceptance aggravation. Invest in your children's future and avoid the personal toys (cars, houses etc.). Your children and their legacies will thank you greatly.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Vintage is a great school! Both my kids attend there, (my son recently graduated) and they've both had the best experience. The teachers and staff are very helpful in every area and go the extra mile to help when it's needed. Parents are always welcome on campus and I enjoy working with everyone there on staff. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants the best for their child. As a Magnet and California Distinguished school, they set high standarts and the work load can sometimes be hard, but in the long run it is very benificial to the students as it prepares them for the future.

This school is truly a hidden gem. The teachers are passionate about teaching. The staff is very helpful. And best of all, the principal, Mr. Rome, is a true leader. The children's education is his number one priority and it is apparent that this is the basis in his decision making. He is very informative, honest, and very very approachable. If you have a great leader, you will have a great staff, and this is definitely the case at Vintage. I am so fortunate that my child was able to attend here.

I love the way the teachers challenge the kids to do their best. The school places a lot of emphasis on not just its math program but all academics. I would give this school a rating of 10. The teachers really work hard to make it interesting. One of the things I love is the fact that Vintage is a NASA Explorer school, one of only 25 in the country. All through the year the school hosts NASA events with interesting things for the kids to do and kid friendly lectures from JPL engineers. Certainly one of the most exciting events last year was the live satellite hookup to the Space Shuttle where the kids were actually able to talk to the astronauts. Vintage also participates in the Lego Robotic competition. My son and I participated 2 years ago; and while it was a big challenge, it was very fun. The staff is very helpful and all of the teachers are great. I also like the fact that the kids wear uniforms. It makes it a lot easier for the parents. Thanks Vintage. You're the best!

Having my daughter attend this school has given her great exposure to Science. She looks forward to the events and her mind has opened up into another Realm that is not found at other schools. My daughter is so intrigued; she watches the NASA channel on the weekend. She proudly wears her black uniform NASA shirt and Jacket. Great School from the Teachers, Staff, Principal, Students and Parents. The School is so positive and friendly, it makes you want to volunteer/participate. Vintage gives parents and students every opportunity to make a difference and have fun at the same time. Whether it's with PTA, Reading Mentoring, Beautification Days, Chess, Girl Scouts, YMCA, there are so many, too many to list. There is something for everyone to participate and get involved.

My daughter has been at Vintage since 1st grade and she will be graduating this year. I can honestly say, our experience with Vintage has been nothing but excellent. My daughter had great teachers for all 5 years. All of the staff are so caring and understanding. Principal is so friendly and approachable. I am very satisfied with the education my child has received at Vintage Magnet.

We like the school because of the Principle, teachers, and staffs who always provide parent a good support on their child education and safety. They create a good environment to support both parent and children to learn. They also, provide a good after school program. At this school you will see that staffs work so hard to keep school clean and safe. I love the activities they have such as Lego Robotic Program and After school program they have. The longer I have my child at Vintage, The more joyful I have in my heart each day. I have to thank my friend who recommend this school to my family. I would like to thank Mr. Rome and Mrs. Hall and all the staffs at Vintage street school. I recommended this school to my friends and to you.

I love vintage because they are committed to high achievement. When my little boy entered vintage, he tested 2 grDe levels lower on reading and comprehesion. My husband and I paid for tutoring and private schools prior to enrolling him in Vintage. Not only did recognize Vintage recognize the problem, they brought in a literacy coach, took the time to help us find better ways to help our son. Now our son is in the 6th grade and he has a 4.0 grade point average.

Vintage has transformed the way my son views learning. Their environment fosters high achievement and creative learning. He very much despised waking up for school, now he cannot wait for the school week to begin. Staff is involved and caring. The principal is very energetic. Parents participation 1000% welcome and necessary!

Vintage is a school that cares about their students. Since my son has been attending this school he is interested in learning and is challenged. The students at Vintage want to learn and be successful. They get along with their peers and respect their teachers. Mrs. Buck is an outstanding teacher and Principal, Mr. Rome has done a great job with Vintage. I highly recommend Vintage and I am proud to say my son attends this great school.

Vintage Magnet is a unique elementary school. The teaching and administrative staff is invested and dedicated to the students. Their enthusiasm and support encourages the students to set their goals high and strive to reach their academic goals. With a strong learning environment and an emphasis on Math, Technology and Science Vintage students are exposed to and provided the opportunities to prepare for success. Our family loves Vintage and we could no imagine a greater more rewarding elementary school experience.

Vintage is not only a California Distinguished School, but one of the very few NASA schools in the country. We've had visits from NASA scientists and former astronauts, as well as a special uplink to the Space Station that the 5th graders participated in this year. The staff and faculty at Vintage are beyond description. Always helpful and always smiling. Principal John Rome greets every child by name, as well as many of the parents. Then there are the special programs - from 4th/5th grade Chorus, to S.T.O.P. (Student Techies on Patrol, to Lego Robotics, Mad Science, Edu-Chess... there is something for every student to participate in. These extraordinary extra-curricular programs further build students self-esteem and love for learning. Although our son is graduating in a few short weeks, Vintage will remain forever dear to us, it's been a great 5 years!! Thank you, to all the staff and teachers for a wonderful experience - and keep up the OUTSTANDING work!!

I think Vintage Manget School is one of best school, I have seen in USA. Vintage Magnet school has very good facilities including science, computer lab. Students are given good exposure to new technologies like computers, space science etc. In Feb 2010, they have arranged live chat with Astronauts in space station. Students were given opportunity to ask questions to Astronauts. This was life time opportunity for students, who got it at such a young age. I am sure, this must have inspired many students and must have bowed seed of few astronauts. Also students were picked through competative context, so all had equal opportunity. This school also arranges various events, which are beneficial to student's growth. So I would recommend this school to everybody. If you get opportunity to enroll in this school, never loose it. Go and grab it.

I am a parent of 1st grader at Vintage last school year. Since Mr. Rome, the new principal's arrival, there has been a lot of changes. There have been many opportunities to involve parent. What I like about this is that the schedule of event is considerated of parent's work schedule. The school has undergone rennovation and the new school ground is beautiful. The school staff display friendly and professional attitude toward guests on campus. The many different curriculum are well aligned, especially between the taught and the learned curriculum. I always get periodic assesment information in a timely manner to gauge my son's learning effectively. I am looking forward to my younger son attendance at this school in the next year.

As a former parent of two students who went through Vintage and as a staff member, Vintage is a great choice for parents who want a caring environment, competent teachers, standardized testing records to be proud of, pleasant environment, hands-on experience in science and technology, diversified student population and safe neighborhood.

My child has only been there for a few weeks, (3rd grade), and I am very pleased with the school. Pros: They really care, from the principal down to the teacher, and are willing to keep parents like me informed on a regular basis. They focus on math and science, which I like. They have a uniform dress code so the school doesn't look like a gang hang out. The average students AIP test scores are great, the children really learn. Cons: Most student's parents regularly ignore some of the rules, (like providing required school supplies and not bringing children to events where they are not allowed to attend). The school doesn't appear, (the buildings), to be particularly well funded compared to many other schools I have seen, (but that obviously doesn't effect their GREAT test scores)

For 3 years now, this School has been wonderful for my son and his future. The scores are among the highest and a strong emphasis is placed in Math,Science & Tech. The school has Computer Labs & Science Labs for all students. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade teachers are so wonderfuly! Hard to get into- send in 'choices' early.
