we don't like the principal. he is not concerned about my daughter's safety. she is depressed going to that school. The father is a bully & the principal does not care, even tho my daughter was accepted to USC Magnet. The principal killed the hopes & dreams of my daughter.
A hidden gem in the San Fernando Valley. We are so fortunate to have teachers who really care. They all work very hard to reach EVERY child. The principal and administrators are first rate. Students at this little school are successful. The only way to explain it is that everyone is part of this award-winning team-- the kids, the staff members, and the parents.
all I can say is that this school is one of the best schools in the valley, my son atended from k-to 3rd he was accepted at SOCES which is a great school too, but Lemay i have so many memories the teachers are amazing specially Mr. G and Mrs Katz 3rd grate teacher who made my son to be a genius in Math all the staff I miss all of them.
I have had children at this school for the last 5 years and each year the school gets better and better. Each teacher my children have had strives for nothing but excellence. My children have made great progress through their years. I always feel welcome at the school and the staff is always striving to do what they can to support the students and parents. I look forward to my youngest finishing her years at this school.
My son just started Kindergarten here and he loves it. He's in Miss Estrada's class. She's a new teacher and I think she is doing wonderfully. The school has really good parent participation, and all the staff members interacting with the children seem very sweet. My son also goes to the creative kids after school program at the school. They help him with homework and reading and give him a snack. The only complaint I had about that program is that I wasn't notified there were limited spaces when my son started school, so he couldn't get into the program for a couple of weeks. Not easy for working parents. Sign up early. The new principal seems very committed and works very hard. The school also has a gigantic yard that is really well maintained and lots of fun murals all over every building.
