The teachers are very attentive to the students individual needs! They are much better than my son's previous district.

Anatola Elementary School is an exceptional place for students to grow and learn. The children really are the focus of the school. While overcoming the obstacles of the bureaucracy of LAUSD the staff works hard to help each child achieve his/her best. The school is lead by a competent principal who knows how to give personal attention where its needed. She motivates the teachers to do their best and provides an ideal environment for children to grow and learn in.

I love Anatola. I am fortunate enough to have attended this school and for my kids to attend this school. My boys started the SRLDP program here which was an AWESOME program!! Then 2 years ago my older son had Mrs. Koch as his Kinder teacher. At first we were kinda disappointed because most his friends ended up in Ms. Rosten's class but we kept Mrs. Koch. She ended up being a great addition in our lives. Then the following year we had Ms. Padilla. Another winner!!! We have been so lucky and blessed to have these teachers. They are great teachers. Kind, respectful, fair, loving, smart and my child loved them and so did I. I had great communication with them and as a parent I couldn't ask for more. I agree with one of the comment. Everyone on staff knew my son by name. I had an issue occur in our personal lives and Mrs. King and Mrs. Weiler had open door policy and took the time to talk to me. What a great school! What a great staff. I do wish that this school had more events where the parents and kids can all get together. Just so the community and students and parents can get together and get to know each other.

I would rate this school more, however all last yr my child was bullied in the 3rd grade I sent personal emails and letters and all the teacher said was that he had it under control. My child would come home soooo raged and angry, mad at me for sending her to school. I had a conference with both teacher and principle and nothing. I had to speak to the parents yes parents 'cause nothing was getting done. I had to threaten restraining order against these children. Its a shame! Now the most part the teachers are awesome they are old fashioned and they care about the education of these children unlike most schools that allow children to not care! =) Sadly to say that 2 of the 3 bullies of last yr continue to do so (bully) children in the 4th grade and great news they have nothing to do with my child anymore!!!!!

It would be nice if those who post comments could get their facts straight. Rumors are easily spread unfortunately and the fact is that Anatola has always sent letters home to notify parents when an incident such as lice has occurred. Also, the word for the leader of a school is "principal". Finally, Anatola is such a small school that, quite inevitably, all of the teachers know their children by first & last names. Even the librarian, office staff, yard monitors, and cafeteria ladies know kids' names. It is ,indeed, a great environment!

Hi I am a parent of a 5th grader at anatola elementary.I think it is a very great school because of parent involvement.The parents get to support their child by participating in disscusions about their children.Also the teachers are very supportive.Overall nice school.

I must admit, I joined the PTA to become more involved with my child's education. However, outside interferences prevented me in participating. Now that the dust has cleared, I am here to do what I can to help. 1. I want to thank all of our teachers who took their time on their days off to help our children who needed extra help by providing Saturday Intervention. Our teachers have gone above and beyond their call of duty as educators and that shows how much they want to see our children succeed. 2. A Special Thank you from me personally with my own child in need with Math and I see her more confident and excited about the subject and less frustrated.

This school needs a school wide discipline plan with clearly stated consequences. Students who are following the rules need to be rewarded for good behavior.

I moved here from the colton unified school district.And I think this school needs to be a little more strict about the grades that the kids in this school are getting.They need to really put more effort to there teachings.My kids were more advance in the colton unified than here and now they are even behind.

The teachers and staff are really trying but the parents don't get involved enough. It takes parents and teachers to make a great school.
