Our son started Kindergarten this year in the Spanish Immersion (SI) program, and he is really enjoying it. :) It's split 50% instruction in English, and 50% instruction in Spanish. Everyday now he comes home singing Spanish songs and making jokes in Spanish - and we're not even at 100 days yet! Overall seems like a terrific school with a super supportive parent community. The SI program is just two years new, so there are still some growing pains, but still, great people, wonderful kinder teachers, and a fabulous school leader in vice principal Olegario Maravilla. I see a real drive to make the school more than exceptional, and strongly believe in Broadway SI's potential and raising the bar for what a neighborhood elementary school should be. We could have gone to the other "neighborhood" school with just a regular all English program, but we thought about the future, and if our son sticks with the SI program track all the way through high school, he'll be fully college level literate in Spanish before graduation. I couldn't think of a better long term life skill to have living in Southern California. More so, my son is a happy learner at Broadway SI with happy parents!

We are in our second year at Broadway Mandarin Immersion and we are absolutely impressed by the quality of teaching that we are receiving in a Public School! Our son is learning Chinese, he adores his teachers and has made many friends. Our principal has amazing leadership and compassion. The parents are very involved and the population is diverse.

Broadway Elementary is trying to do something beyond what most parents in regular English programs can understand. Any negative reviews for this school by previous posters are most likely not in either the MI or SI programs. This was a failing school all but a few years ago. The MI program came in and raised up this school that no one in the local community really seemed to care about. The principal is currently being split between three programs, having to deal with LAUSD politics along with the daily issues of running a school. I applaud what the MI and SI programs are trying to do, it requires strong parental involvement, time and money. This is not just a drop your kids off at school place. The program's success is a reflection of how much the parents ARE the school.

This school is amazing academically but if you are looking for feel good, creative program-- do not look at the Mandarin Program. It is strict and lacks fun. It seems like the school could do something to make it a more enjoyable experience for kids. Also, they ask the parents for A LOT of money! There is no room for lower income families if you ask me. They cater to the rich.

Second time posting... seems like my first post was deleted. Here is goes again. My worst decision as a parent was to send my son to this school. The school is split into 2 programs and it is pretty clear to see which program is favored. The principal seems to undermine the intelligence of the parents and act as if this isn t obvious to see. The teachers lack enthusiasm for teaching and the office staff could learn some manners from my 6 year old son. The school hardly offers the opportunity for parent involvement which makes it difficult to have a strong relationship with the staff. Worst school in this district! Stay away!

Broadway is a great school. We went with the Mandarin program because research shows learning a pictorial language (Chinese, Arabic etc ) in conjunction with a phonetic language (English) challenges the brain even more. Plus, the Mandarin program parents have raised funds so every Mandarin classroom has a TA and the children (in every grade) get to take multiple field trips (unlike the other programs at Broadway, and the majority of schools within LAUSD). To date, LAUSD has not committed any funds towards moving the program to another location and has failed to execute any previous plans for such a move. I don t think they have the money to build anything, anywhere, on the Westside. Time will tell.

Our daughter is a kindergartner in the Spanish Immersion program. There is currently a lot of change happening at Broadway, namely, the Mandarin program has grown too big for the school and so is being moved to a new location over the course of the next three years. Currently there are only two SI classes but that will grow as Mandarin transitions. We are so incredibly happy with our experience here so far. Ole Maravilla (the Vice Principal and SI champion) is a fantastic leader and very passionate about the school and the kids.There is wonderful group of families and parent involvement is very high. Most importantly the teachers are phenomenal! I have an older child that went through the Santa Monica school system and I can say with out any reservation that both Mrs. Nagata and Sra Carvajal are among the best teachers I have ever worked with. I have always been heavily involved in the classroom, spending up to 15 hours per week at times, so have experience with many different teachers. I honestly can not say enough good things about them. Our daughter is absolutely thriving! We feel so incredibly blessed and grateful to be a part of this fabulous program.

I am the parent of a first grader at Broadway. My daughter transferred into kindergarten six weeks after school began last year. I have been delighted with the school, from the principal all the way down to the janitorial staff. The academics are challenging, but the teachers make the work engaging and fun. There is a tremendous amount of parent involvement, which lends itself to an overall sense of community. And, call it a personal bias, but I do not believe there is a better principal to be found in all of LAUSD. Her commitment to the students resonates in every decision she makes. I continue to be awestruck that my girl is going to leave elementary school with a great overall education and fluent in Mandarin. All this from a public school? WHAT?! I love it.

The Broadway Mandarin Immersion program is great. My daughter just started kindergarten there and is so excited for both her chinese and english classes. The teachers are excellent and the school is on top of EVERYTHING. The parents are also very involved (sometimes a little too much, but that's my own pet peeve) and the school is run extremely well. I wasn't sure if the school would be worth the trek and given that our local school is extremely good, but after only a month or so, i can say it definitely is worth it.

After three years of exploring options, we are now one month into the Broadway Mandarin Immersion Program with our kindergartener. Overall, we love the program. It's really fun seeing our child come home and sing Chinese songs and speak Chinese with classmates and family members. We have a 30 minute each-way commute, and opted out of a top rated neighborhood school to attend Broadway. Our only concern is that this is an LAUSD school, and is burdened with the same bureaucracy as every LAUSD school. Yet, Principal Wang is an amazing leader and she does a great job of managing within this system. Parent volunteers and donations further build upon the program that Principal Wang established. As we want our child to have a world class education, we also go one step further with after school and weekend enrichment programs. Now that we're on the inside of this school, it would be even easier if we had to make the choice again--the Broadway Mandarin Immersion Program was the right choice for our family.

Broadway Elementary School started a Mandarin Immersion Program in 2010. My daughter was in the 2nd cohort that started in 2011. We are super impressed by the caliber of the Principal, Susan Wang, and the teachers involved in the Immersion Program. They are hard-working and loving toward the kids and amazing to see how quickly my daughter was able to pick up Mandarin writing and reading and improve her communications as well. The parent community is also very involved and committed to seeing the Mandarin Immersion Program do well and building up the Mandarin immersion community. I also love that there is a diverse population of families involved in the program interested in multi-cultural understanding. It is a fantastic program and we love it!!! Can't believe it's a LAUSD PUBLIC school!

Both of my children are learning and thriving in the Mandarin Immersion Program at Broadway. I can't agree more on all the great things that other parents said about this program. This is an unique and possibly the best public education within LAUSD. If you want your child to be bilingual (Mandarin), globally minded, and you don't mind the extra support required to help your child succeed, this is the program. The Principal is extremely dedicated, very open to parent input and cares deeply about each student's well-being. Teachers work hard to collaborate in their team-teaching model and to differentiate their teaching. The parent community is diverse and very active. This is a great program.

Broadway is a remarkable school on so many levels. On one small campus we harbor three successful elementary programs, English focused, Spanish focused, and Mandarin focused. When we all gather at assembly, all races mixed, with our hands over our hearts to do, The Pledge of Allegiance, it feels like the America we dream of; opportunity and peace for all of our children. The academics are great, and even rising each year, but most importantly, our children see the parents work together, wether it be volunteering for valet parking, beautification days, or just chatting while the children play.

My daughter is now in second grade. She loves the school, the teachers and her friends. We are in the Mandarin Immersion program. We are native first generation Mandarin speaking family. We find this program provide adequate challenges to our child in both Mandarin and English curriculum. Our extended family member oversea are amazed how fluent she is in reading, writing and speaking in both English and Mandarin. We are very proud of our child and very appreciated to this program and entire teaching-team of this program. Nevertheless, we understand this program may not work for every family, there is a certain level of commitment and parent participation involved in working with a child in this program. This is not a play-based school and there is homework and daily reading.

I too am giving this school 4 stars ONLY because the school's parent body and administrators are constantly looking for new ways to improve. From what I see, there seems to constant movement to be a public school of the future. Broadway Elementary currently houses 2 Language Immersion Programs. (Spanish and Mandarin) My children are in the Mandarin Immersion Program. We found out about the school when one of my kids was taking a very casual recreation class in Mandarin. We thought since she enjoyed the language it couldn't hurt to check out the school. When we toured the school, we were blown away with the passion of the Principal (Susan Wang). We had the gut feeling that this was the right place for our family to be and we were right. We are now going on our third year and are very happy. Like everything, there are things that we are NOT happy about - but everything that we are dissatisfied with is because of LAUSD policies and procedures and not the teachers, administrators, and parent body. We've met tons kids are bright and seem to come from nice families. If your family is passionate about a second language and a strong academic environment, this is the program for you.

We are in the mandarin immersion program. This school is extremely organized and well run by Principal Wang. We permitted out of a highly rated school and make a long commute twice/day to come here. So far, we are very impressed with the school. Before Kindergarten started, I emailed Principal Wang with some information that was important for the school to know. I was pleasantly surprised when at orientation, our kindergarten teacher recognized our name and said that Principal Wang had already briefed her on the information we shared. The kindergarten teachers also made time on the first day of school to meet with me about our concerns. The teachers really care about the students and the program and put a lot of effort into teaching. We feel very fortunate to have gotten into this school.

This is an amazing school, and I can't imagine feeling more positive about my son's educational experience. I give only four stars because, now entering it's fourth year, I know it will only get better and better. The best thing about the program is not the Mandarin, but the principal, teachers, and other staff. My son loves them all. We chose the program for our now first-grader because we know the language immersion is something that we can't replicate at home (we are monolingual family) and needs to start early for the greatest benefit. And our son loves the Mandarin, but the English side of the program is top-notch, too! The rest of the day does not play second-fiddle to what the MI is trying to accomplish. It is challenging, so don't make this choice if you don't believe challenge should start in kindergarten and aren't up for supporting the MI at home. The program may lack some things that other programs boast of (separate art, music, etc.), but they are incorporated where possible and will probably be more so as we are able to raise more money to support them. In the mean time I step that up at home. We love the MI program!

I am positive my children are receiving a world class education at Broadway as good or better than any private school. My children are in the Mandarin Immersion program, with no background in Chinese. My second grader speaks like a native (according to my neighbor from Beijing), and reads and writes in Mandarin. My other child is in kindergarten and loves her teachers and is already speaking a few words in Mandarin. The English portion of the program is also outstanding. My second grader is clearly ahead of her same age cousins who attend another LAUSD school. It is an academically rigorous program, but my oldest has time to just be a kid and has 3 regular play dates a week. The campus is very secure and safe. I have never worried about my children's safety once in 3 years and have never had a negative encounter with any of the children or parents from any of the programs on campus. I believe the MI program truly offers the best education in LA, private or public.

The Mandarin Immersion Program is simply outstanding. Our daughter just started her 4th year in the program and we could not be more pleased. The Principal is a professional, cream-of-the crop leader who actively listens to and engages parents and maintains a friendly, calm, yet authoritative stance on campus. The teachers go above and beyond for their students. This is an academically rigorous program, but is also a program that actively strives to understand the needs of individual students so that every child can thrive. We love this school, the staff, the parents, and the kids!! This program is giving our child the opportunity, not only to learn a second language, but to deeply connect with part of her cultural heritage in a way that would otherwise be impossible. What a gift.

I have two kids at this school and am very impressed! Everyone is very focused on helping the students to succeed. I think this attitude comes from the top down. I have never seen a better principal. She is very hands on and devoted to the kids. The teachers work very hard and put in a lot of time before and after school to help the kids. I have helped out in the classroom quite a bit and my son's kindergarten teacher is amazing! Her nuanced approach to reaching each child is a marvel to see. She can be animated and funny without being too loud or overbearing. At the same time she is actually "seeing" each child and making small adjustments as she goes. It is very impressive. Both of my kid's teachers are thoughtful, caring and empathetic. As a mom of elementary aged kids, it is definitely something I look for.

The review just written yesterday is not at all reflective of the program. The teacher's are not harsh and the administration is warm and accepting of the children. This year there was a substantial wait list to get into the school. My guess is that this was written by a parent whose child is not in the Immersion program trying to make this excellent program look bad in vain hope of reducing the size of the student population of this program which is now over 300. This is an excellent school on parallel with the best immersion programs in the US.

I totally disagree with the posting by a parent yesterday about the school. The Mandarin immersion program at Broadway Elementary is a top-notch program with great leadership and outstanding/dedicated teachers. My daughter has been attending the school for three years and we simply love the school. We entered the program knowing that it will be an academic vigorous program. We won't settle for less. The principal is the best administrator we have ever encountered and the teachers are caring and work tirelessly daily to teach our children. Parents are very involved and our community is strong. School enviroment is safe and clean. School staff is friendly. We are very happy with the progress of our daughter both in the areas of personal growth and academic achievement. We highly recommend our Mandarin immersion program to everyone!

Broadway is really two schools. The Mandarin Immersion program is perhaps the best in LAUSD and one of the best educational experiences in Greater LA. The regular school is regular LAUSD. Instead of an "8" rating it should be 10/5 to reflect the differences. The MI program will be relocating 2013/2014 and the destination has not been announced. Many of the parents are attracted by the Mandarin component while other just want a great school. The principal and teachers are dedicated and the parents group is amazingly involved. Some would say too involved as the parents are generally highly educated, mostly affluent, and often type A . There is a lot of support for families without a native Mandarin speaker in the house but be aware this is not a place for parents who just want to drop off their kids and not be involved. Success in this program will require effort from the parents. If you are up for the work and can get in then I would highly recommend the MI classes. By the time these children get out of college English and Mandarin will be the only languages that matter.

Our family chose this school over our local community 10 out of 10 school primarily because of the new Mandarin Immersion program that was started in 2010. We've had no regrets whatsoever. The children spend half of the day in English instruction and the other half of the day fully immersed in Mandarin instruction. It's amazing to see how much children can soak up at this age. By the end of kindergarten, students were writing, speaking, and reading in both English and Mandarin. The teachers and principal are extremely dedicated and go above and beyond to ensure a rich, fun, and warm educational experience. You can really see how much care and love they have for the children. Equally amazing is the parent community, which is highly active, dedicated, and super helpful. In my daughter's words, "a school without Chinese would be really boring."

My son has learned more Mandarin within the last 2 months than what I was trying to teach him in 5 years! This immersion program works. All the children (from many different backgrounds) are so excited to sing, speak and write in Mandarin. My son has only been in this school for 2 months and I am amazed at his progress of learning: both English and Mandarin. I particularly like how diversed the students are! My son has a high level of intellectual curiosity and can be easily bored - this program is perfect for him. And, he loves his teachers!

We moved from downtown to attend this school. Bilingual and bicultural education are very, very important to my wife and I. She is from Taiwan and I am was born and raised in the US, but lived in Taiwan for 6 years. We both wanted a community that reflected our diverse backgrounds and to give this balanced 'identity' foundation for our girls. We have been happy with Broadway. The parent involvement in the school is amazing. The principal (as all the other reviewers have noted is great). The concept -- dual language immersion is one that has very solid research support in terms of long-term outcomes. It also just makes sense for us as a family. The teachers, so far, are strong. Our daughter loves the school. She actually looks forward to doing the homework. And my wife is a regular volunteer. For us, so far, it has been an excellent choice.

My kids is already very fluent in Mandarin, know how to read about 100 chars. and write about 30-40 words. Our primary language at home is Mandarin; our biggest concern is if the kid's English will be discounted at the 50/50 teaching method. After couple of months of school, my hat is off to both English and Mandarin teachers. My child's Mandarin is progressing due to differentiate teaching and at the same time learning lots of new words & math in English class as well. My child cannot wait to go to school every day, and very excited about the new things learned in both languages classes. My child is also enrolled in various enrichment afterschool classes by STAR, we are extremely fortunate to get into this school. We also love the parent involvement here on campus. We are so glad that our child is on this path of dual language immersion. My child is so proud of our heritage and the ability speak Mandarin Chinese.

What an amazing program, school, faculty and principal. We left Santa Monica USD to attend Broadway Mandarin Immersion, and I am so glad that we did. I was inspired by the leadership and passion in Principal Wang, and the teachers are amazing with the kids. The parent participation is so wonderful, and I see many parents donating their time and money for the kids. Truly a wonderful environment for learning, and the community is closely knit. I was confused by the reviewer that claimed the school wasn't warm and friendly. I've made some amazing friends, and we've had playdates with numerous kids from our class. Totally differing experiences, but as you can see by the vast majority of the reviews, BMI is a wonderful school. Don't waste your money on Private school when an amazing opportunity is free to the public. You won't reet your decision.

WOW! We were in one of the "10" schools in an affluent Westside neighborhood, and the school was very strong, but we were looking for something more. When we met Principal Susan Wong, we were blown away. She's amazing! She's encouraging, firm and nurturing. She strives for excellence, and her teachers are very committed and great. They go the extra mile for the kids. This is a school to watch, and the Mandarin Immersion program is quite impressive. We have two boys at Broadway. The school is doing well from a "testing" perspective, but the school focuses on the whole child - respect, discipline, confidence, social skills, etc. I couldn't speak more highly of the school.

We should expect leadership and teaching excellence for every school. This shcool has both, however they spend a lot of time making up for lower test scores, discipline problems, and the general lack of enthusiasm. The staff seems tired and not interested in trying to involve parents. It is clear that schools even 1 mile away in more affluent areas recieve a lot more in support, supplies, and parental funding. We ended up pulling our 3rd. grader and finding a more supportive environment.

Switch from private to Broadway(public)du to some learning disabilities. Well and my kid has since perform very well and love going to school. It does shows when the teaching body cares and are professionals. Teacher and staff are excellent and this experience changed my view regarding public school.
