This was our first year in Topeka, we love the school. Our son enjoyed going to KG. I should say some situations were disappointing but I can not blame the school for it, the Principal was always caring and helpful. Our son quickly stopped enjoying coming to school after some of his classmates started being physically abusive, of which the teacher was witness and was the one who brought it to my attention but weeks passed and he didn't take any action to stop it, so we had to go to the Principal and then the problem stopped. We asked the teacher to sign our son in the reading program to motivate him to keep reading as he was doing at home prior to entering KG but he never did, few months later several incidents occurred that raised ours and others parents concerns but parents were afraid of speaking up after noticing the change the teacher would have towards the kids and their parents so most of them would go to the parents who weren't afraid of speaking up and some others just kept quiet. The school can not take action if they are not aware of the situation. We are glad this first year is over and we are confident the following years will be much better.

Topeka is a fabulous school that we feel blessed to have been a part of for the last three years. Tomorrow our youngest culminates, so our time at Topeka is almost over, and we will miss it terribly. The Principal is fantastic! Incredibly high-energy, caring, dedicated -- in short, amazing! Teachers and staff are great. PTA is amazing.

My daughter is culminating tomorrow and I can't help but feel extremely grateful for her 6 years at Topeka. She has had wonderful, caring, patient, and intelligent educators year after year. They have encouraged, motivated, and mentored her. What makes Topeka great is the approachable principal who is very much invested in the school. You can tell she really cares about the kids and the community. The teachers are amazing! They make learning so much fun! The parental involvement is awesome! In any organization, it's difficult to get people to volunteer. However, at Topeka, so many parents volunteer and we truly give it our best. Our PTA is comprised of both stay-at-home and work-out-of-the-home parents. Everyone's welcome to pitch in as much as they can.

"A terrible teacher" that's how one of his colleagues described him. Many of his decisions and information sharing throughout the year were questionable but it was overall an ok year, the experience was a little harder on some kids and parents due to some drama created by the same teacher. He would favorite one of the kids due to his mother and he would allow her to even yell at the kids while volunteering in the class. Besides that my child enjoyed kindergarten and I'm glad is almost over. Parents in this school are amazing, a lot of hard worker volunteers. The staff is ok, we noticed a lot of damage control, kids are encouraged to tell on each other which most parents didn't like, sometimes we noticed the staff would tell the parents what they think they want to hear. Overall is a great school, with a few teachers who need better training or be reassigned and a staff that could be more friendly, respectful and committed to the integrity, education and well being of the children, and the peace of mind of the parents instead of just covering each other's backs. There is a lot of room for improvement and I hope I can see some of those changes come to live soon.

Updated review: Unless you are close to the principal, forget decent treatment by teachers, faculty and staff. Pulled out in December and couldn't be happier! We switched to a private school that treats everyone with respect.

This school looks to be well organized and heading in the right direction with the positive trend of increasing test scores the past several years. Looking forward to my child attending kindergarten in the fall.

Before we enrolled my son to this school, I went there and interviewed some parents after school. Most of them told us this is very good school. Teachers and principal are very good. They pay attention to all the student. My son loves to go to school that is the most important thing. I can not wait to take my youngest son there next year. Highly recommend this school to all the parents.

Wow! Topeka's API has increased again! 916!!! I love the principal--I have never found a more engaged and approachable principal like her. Great teachers--intelligent, warm, and patient. This is our 6th year in Topeka and it has only gotten better over the years. We have a great core of parents--working AND stay-at-home parents alike--who make Topeka an excellent community to be a part of.

My kids have been at Topeka for five years and I would not leave for another school if one opened up across the street! 1- The teachers are strict but caring and available to talk to. I have been able to contact them (and they me) by notes, email, phone and text. 2- My one special needs child is handled as the IEP asks for. The resource teachers are also helpful, caring and available. 3- The PTA is amazing and got more done last year than any other year we've been at Topeka! 4- The room parents/volunteers are great. We get emails, an online calendar, Facebook page, website, etc. to keep up with everything. 5- Though I can't be involved much in PTA and volunteering, I do not feel excluded. They say "any help is welcome". 6- The principal is always around and knows my kids by name. We get "Sunday Minutes" from her and "Coffee with the Principal" monthly. Very pro-active not reactive. 7-School grounds are well kept. Library is beautiful and full, computer lab is state-of-the-art. 8- We do need more art and cultural programs, but LAUSD keeps cutting this! If you are looking for a wholesome, all inclusive school, check this one out.

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.
