Great School for the neighborhood. My son attended there for 6th grade in 2012-2013 I couldn't tell you about the help students get if they fall behind. I can say that for children that are proficient they're not challenged as much as they should be. My son got accepted into a magnet program at another middle school and decided to pull him out to see if he can be academically challenged elsewhere. My decision was based on their API test scores CST and school ratings. Bert Corona only has 687 vs 860 at the other school. I do loved the small campus everyone knows each other, and the kids seem to be grounded. I really dont have complaints about the school I really liked it and would have kept my son there if he wasnt accepted to a magnet program. He was really sad having to leave the school. I def recommend this school for those in the area not wanting to put your children in public schools, best in the area.

I went all three years to Bert Corona. As i was scrolling down i see all these other comments, some not so good, but that was a few years back. This school is one of the best. Take it from me, they have great leadership, a good after school program, & they have athletics. They encourage us to do our best. But they need to find a way to accept more kids. -former student in 10th

My husband Los Angeles Councilman Tony Cardenas and I are big fans of our neighborhood schools. This school happens to be our neighborhood middle school. Please note, it's not just us, the administration at Bert Corona has taken a unified approach to teaching the student. The teachers constantly collaborate, they are very accessible and work with the parents to identify where your child needs to build on to be successful and work with the student to change it up for them to learn to take ownership of their academic journey. Mr. Duenas and his administration teach the path to the desires of the students at Bert Corona Charter.

I am a parent of two students at Bert Corona. I have a child that will become a 7th grader this September and my other child will be a new 6 grader. I would like to thank all the 6 grade teachers for all the great work. They have really showed me that they really care about my child. When ever they see that your child is falling behind they will make sure you know and they give them the opportunity to improve the grade. I would like to thank the school principal for giving my children the opportunity to be part of this school and for all the great work that he has done, including making sure the campus is secure and safe. The after school staff has done a great job too. It has all been a great experience, I am really looking toward the next school year.

I ve read a few bad comments about Bert Corona, and I disagree 120%. At Bert Corona our children are not know by a number but by their name. The Principle, teachers and staff work very hard to teach and train the students to become the best that they can be. They reward the students who work hard, and are patience with those who have hard time learning. Bert Corona you are and will always be in our hearts. We love you Mr. Duenas, Teachers and Staff. 'Viva Bert Corona'

This school is the best charter school in pacoima. The teachers are hard working and the classes only have about 20-27 students. The school is big and has alot of space to be around.

Bert Corona staff and administration are very welcoming and work hard to provide the best education to our children. I want to thank them for their hard work and dediction. They are also very appreciative of what we, the parents, do to help our children succeed. Thank you for valuing us and our children.

Bert Corona Charter School has improved alot since it first started. The executive director and principal work hard for the students and parents. The teachers work before school, on their breaks, and afterschool with the students to help them with work they don ot understand They have hired a parent coordinator that is always available and runs weekly parent trainings for parents. They even have computer classes for parents. Bert Corona is a great place for students and thier parents.

My step-daughter has been a student at Bert Corona Middle School since her sixth grade, she is now in eighth grade and will be graduating this year (2008). I have to say that this school is great, the principal and all the staff care about the students 100%, whether academically or physically. Of course you will never find a perfect school, but Bert Corona will prevail. Porque Si Se Puede!!!

Bert Corona Charter is by far one of the worst schools in the San Fernando Valley. You would think a charter school with such a small campus would emphasize in academics and teacher involvement. Don t be fooled! The school staff makes no effort to return parent phone calls or notifying of up coming events. Test scores alone do not make a school worthy of recognition.

This charter school is a typically start up school with a immense lack of resources and administrative leadership. Students at the school are better off attending neighboring middle schools where they might receive more academic attention. The resources avaliable to students with learning disabilities are very inadequate. This is an prime example of why cooperate non-profits should not develop charter schools.

Bert Corona Charter is a excellent school in the San Fernando Valley. They teach the children to be strong leader in academics and in the community. The staff and teachers put so much time and effort into the children's education.You would think they live on campus. The principle has improved the campus 100 %,and this is his first year there. They have a good after school program that provides several activities; sign language, dance, basketball, and tutoring. The program coordinator truly cares for the children and there family members. The only one thing the school lack is parent involvement!

This is a FANTASTIC school. We were a bit taken back when we first brought our song there, but once we got to meet the staff & the teachers - we were impressed! This year, the school has a new principal and he is AMAZING! Our son has improved 110% and that is thanks to those amazing teachers. You can have a beautiful school campus - but with worthless teachers & staff - the school means NOTHING. This school does not have all the bells and whistles when it comes to appearances, but it totally makes up in their teachers and staff. BRAVO Bert Corona!!! I am proud to have my son in that school and it tears me apart that he has to graduate from their next year. You can't find teachers & staff like that who cares about our kids. THANK YOU!!!
