This was our first year at White Point with our son starting kindergarten. We have had a wonderful experience this past year and I look forward to the next. My son had Mrs. Bard for a teacher and really enjoyed her and her class. I love that the principal is very involved with the students and, in my opinion, takes excellent care of the school. I would definitely recommend this school.

I went to this school for my 1st Grade and 2nd grade. All I can remember is how wonderful I felt there. I loved going to school everyday. I would walk from my house and see the ocean and just was thrilled. I would cut through the vacant lots and get to school early.I cannot remember my teacher's name. What I do remember is how wonderful, kind and encouraging they were with me. I even remember a person called a "teachers aid" I did not know what that meant! OH by the way that was the school year 1963 and 1964. I was at this school when Kennedy was shot and I how we are came together at the school, keeping it together. What a great school. I'm all grown up now, almost 60 years old, and I give credit to the teachers and staff of this school for my success in life.

Great to see this school is still holding strong. I was a student at White Point 40 years ago! Mrs. Elizabeth Danky was Principal and my favorite teacher was Mrs. Krogh. She made a difference in my life! Thank you. Linda Borich-Seibert

There are a few teachers that are well prepared and challenged the students to do great like Ms. Duvanjak (1st grade) and Ms. Webb (2nd grade). Unfortunately, this year 3rd grade teacher, Mr. Manzanal has been less than an acceptable teacher. Since the beginning of the year my child has been struggling in the class(academical/socially). From a straight A+/very responsible kid to a child that come from school crying because he/she is afraid to go to class, not to mentioned that his/her reading/math scores dropped significantly compared to last year. We talked to the principal trying to find a way to help our child, and her response was " I can't do anything" straight forward. This teacher is known for having anger management and yell to the kids constantly. Sometimes give test to kids without sending homework for month other times he send homework without even explaining the material in class (i.e. a science project due in two weeks, with a CST in between and w/out explaining the kids about what it is a science project). We are very disappointed about this school and the support NOT received by the principal. From a parent and former teacher (15+ yrs teaching experience)

I was a student here 2006-2008. I loved this school. I was so sad when we moved (my dad was air force.) I when to kindergarten in Boston, Massachusetts, the rest of elementary and 6th in DC, and now am 7th in Denver. The students at white point were so friendly and the teachers were AMAZING and SO KIND. I have heard that camp CIMI was very fun though I was gone by 4th. Best school experience yet.

I've been a White Point parent for 9 years. Both of my children have had great teachers and they've enjoyed themselves at WP. There are plenty of opportunities for parents to get involved in. Notices are constantly being sent home informing parents of upcoming events. If you missed a notice, the "connect ed" phone messages are great because you always know what's happening at WP. The principal loves the students and knows EACH student by name. She enforces school policy and will help you in any way she can should a situation or problem arise. I've found the principal to be kind and helpful. Her door is always open. The ladies in the office know what they're doing and are very helpful. The PFO and teachers have created many fun activities for the students to take part in, too. Whether you are a new parent or a returning parent, there are always people there to welcome you. I've found this school to be organized and a great place to learn.

My son's Kindergarten teacher was amazing. I can't say enough positive things about her. He loved her, his friends and his school. He had a great experience. However, the school might as well be run by a bunch of monkeys. There's no organization. They wait until the last minute to inform the parents of things, if at all. Then they expect you to jump through their hoops. And if you are unable to meet their last minute demands, you are not a good enough parent. The principal is rude. Most parents can't stand her. And if you're not a member of the PFO, she doesn't like you either. Way too political for elementary school, in my opinion.

My son attended Kindergarten here, but after a year of issues with teachers and other staff, we decided to move him to South Shores Magnet Program. He is now on the honor roll and doing great! We are very happy we made the change.

To the others who more recently Yanked their children from this school. Please let me know by Posting on here what schools you chose to send yours to instead and what grades they are in. Also please let me know if you chose to go with a Permit to get them in, magnet or private school selection? I'm flustered by my experience this year as well with my children in this school and am considering a change. However, we need some assistance picking a new school in this area since we haven't been here long. Thank you for your help.

As a previous poster mentioned, this school was great some years ago under different leadership(Mr.Suzuki). I had to pull my youngest child out of this school, due to consistent issues with teachers and leadership. My child is now thriving in a different school.

Unfortunately I wouldn't reccommend this school. Some people have great experiences here but more often than not I find other parents who have had similar experiences as I've had. My child's Kindergarten teacher yelled at the kids, frequently. She was extremely uncomfortable in class because of this. She would cry often during school and was always nervous that she was going to get yelled at because so many of the kids in her class got yelled at. I was in class volunteering one day and heard the teacher yell at the student in a very condesending and sarcastic way and I was very uncomfortable being there. I thought if I was that uncomfortable just imagine how my child felt every day in that class. It was common though for most of the teachers to yell at students there. When I spoke to other parents about this they all had similar stories to tell. My child is now in another school and I will say that our experience is completely different and we're so happy now.


Posted October 18, 2011

I highly recommend this school. Our two children attend. I think a school experience is what you make of it. There will be challenging teachers, challenging staff and administration. If you see something is a wry then offer a say something, and/or offer a solution; Our schools as well as WP are in dire fiduciary straits therefore parental involvement, whenever possible and in all its many and varied forms, is welcomed and is critical for the continued (API, CST, etc) success. Go White Point Whales!

Unfortunately we have had a horrible experience at White Point Elementary this past year. Administration have been downright incompetent and discriminatory, whenever an issue have been brought up. There have been safety issues, like no adult supervision during recess. My daughter was injured by another student, and administration suggested my daughter had made the whole thing up, since no adult had witnessed the incident. Important paperwork was lost and mistakes were made, and administration decided to blame us, instead of owning up to grave errors. We have been ignored for minutes while staff discuss personal issues like shopping, which in turn made my daughter late for class. I feel terrible for putting my daughter through this experience and can only tell her this is not how to treat others, and not to let yourself be treated like this again. Thankfully she is now extremely happy at another school.

To the parent who asked about a daycare that will pick up the kids after school, The Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse and, if you're military, the Youth Center at Ft. Mac both pick up from the school. My daughter attended the Bathhouse while on the waiting list for Ft. Mac and we love both of them. The only reason we switched was because the Bathhouse does not offer before school care and we need that. Ft. Mac opens at 6:30am and will drop the children off at school if needed (also provide breakfast), as well as pick them up afterwards. The Bathhouse is only after school care. Both close at 6:00pm. Hope this helps! My oldest will go in to the 3rd grade this year and my youngest starts kindergarten this year at White Point. It is a good school with lots of parent particiaption. I regret working full time and wish i could be more active.

My kids will start Kindergarten at Whitepoint this year and being that we both work was wondering if there is a daycare in the neighborhood that picks up kids up at school. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I know the White Point of 1971. I attended there from 4th thru 6th grade. Ms Wells was 4th grade, 5th with Ms Moffat, and 6th with Mr Pratt. I lived in Naval housing up on the hill. We walked down the asphalt trail to Silvius Ave. below. My dad was a Naval Officer stationed on the Camden in Long Beach. I remember the blacktop, the metal swinging rings by the monkey bars, kickball, foursquare, the track, and being one of the first schools to offer classes to deaf students. I learned sign language to be a playground leader. I remember standing in line in the courtyard for lunch. I remember the art project with the visiting art teacher, being picked to help paint the Aztec mural pictures on the courtyard walls. I remember one of the astronauts visiting our school and getting his autograph. I remember Ms Moffat said I was artistically talented, Mr Pratt graded my handwriting a "D", the visiting music teacher telling me I didn't have an angelic voice for the choir. Funny, my BA and Masters, are in Music, voice performance. I professionally sing. We get out what we put in, including parents and teachers. The kids learn from each other as well as the adults around them.

I am sad that we have to leave this wonderful school. There is great community involvement. The teachers and staff are awesome!

My daughter is in 1st grade here. Her teacher is WONDERFUL..we couldn't have been more blessed to have her. There is one kindergarten teacher who is very spirit-crushing (in my opinion) but good with academics...but good luck talking the principal into not sticking your kid with that teacher (she doesn't take well to requests for teachers). Overall, our experience at Whitepoint has been GREAT...high parental involvement (but it would be nice if they had PTO meetings at a time when working parents could attend). My daughter sometimes stays on the playground after school until I'm off work at 3:30 and I have no worries for her safety. She's learning a lot and is very happy there (and it's a BEAUTIFUL campus..you can see the ocean from the parking lot..and my kids love hearing the peacocks squawk while they're playing around outside!)

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
