Parents, ... My daughter will be graduating from her this year, I am so confused about middle schools, only that Idon'twant her at Roy Romer. Please let me know what schools you're children went to, and some basic info onthem. Thank you...
Sendak is a great school! The special ed staff are a very tight, award winning team who work together well, care about our school's families, and have strong professional skills. Mrs. O'Connor, our SDC teacher, runs a very "tight ship". The class is disciplined and academically oriented. Ms. Singer and Mrs. Albin, our RSP teachers, collaborate very well and try to meet each student's individual needs. We have agreements with community agencies to deliver counseling in the school for children with Medi-Cal, and counseling groups for children in special ed. I have been a school psyhcologist for 22 years and this is one of the best schools I've worked at.
This is a great school, the teachers really get involved with your children's education. I am proud to say that my children are getting the best education at Sendak Elementary. The teacher's and staff always communicate about my children's behaviour and class performance. The principal's high leadership and Academic focus is what makes a difference at Sendak. I can't wait to see the next rating when this school will measure up with the state's high standarized rating. Sendak offers after school programs with some of the best staff who communicate on a daily basis with parents. Sendak also has some of the best teachers who really want your children to succeed (thank you to Mrs. Garcia, Mrs. Herrera, Mr. O'Donell & Mrs.Simpson), you have made a difference in my children's education.
the school's website is http://sendak-lausd-ca.schoolloop.com About 3/4 of the staff are spanish speaking. Our API increased about 20 points this year. Every year we are excelling in our goal of improving student achievement. We love our teachers, students and parents. We all work together as a team. If we didn't we would not show progress as we have been doing.
There is no web site for this school. No one answers the phone after 4pm. There is no voice mail directory not even an old fashion answering machine. It has about 90% Latino student population and very few staff members speak spainish. There are no after school programs to assist slow learners. They started the year with not enough 4th grade teachers. No one from the district office returns phone calls. If you can afford it send your children to private schools and tutoring services.
Our school is not just a staff and students we are a family. Everyone here at Maurice Sendak Elementary are dedicated to our school and helping our children become well rounded, successful members of the community,
