Great school. Wonderful teachers. Amazing parent dedication. We've attended since my child was in K. Now she's in 4th. Feel very lucky to be here.

This is my 5th year as a parent at West Hollywood Elementary. I am writing this in response to the one posted on 9/2. Inaccurate and full of assumptions. But the worse was judging the teachers. I have had great experiences with all of my teachers and since I have more than I child, I have pretty much almost experienced all of them in one way or another. They are dedicated and they really care for our children. There are social dynamics at every school. But you should definitely go to another school if you think things are different elsewhere.

Real mythology being perpetuated by the 5 star reviews. Firs truth--not much of a music program. The parent org does fund a singing program that also gives recorders to 2nd grade. There are 2 singing performances annually. TArts: this year only 2 -- same as any other LAUSA program. Our class gets dance and art . NOT every class even gets the basic 8 weeks of LAUSD art program. Its luck of the draw, and nothing extraordinary. Three good teachers left. Some of the teachers great; others, just average. There are many poorly planned split classes and parents I know personally who have had/have kids in them are not happy. There is a lot of instability in the school at the moment. Students left for Wonderland (and not all because of the gifted program there but just because it was a way out when Wonderland opened another 4th grade class this year). There are cliques for sure, and this school has social problems with parents, not so much with kids. We hope to get into a magnet or another school this year or next. Don't believe the hype. They ask is really big and I am not happy with the supposed perks my child gets (or doesn't get). No library and PE only once a week. BOO!

Not sure what the reviews mean when they say no music? Or enrichments? Or an art teacher? Perhaps they don't know that we have a program called Education Through Music throughout the whole year for every class, and there were 2 performances last year showcasing what they'd learned. The older kids also learn the recorder and percussive instruments. As far as extra-curricular activities, there are after school programs and then a lot of extras. I saw buses outside of the school all the time taking kids on field trips. My child went to the theater and saw 2 different live shows throughout the year. There was also an art teacher (LAUSD provided) who went into every classroom last year, for the full year, perhaps some parents didn't meet him? If you are interested in sending your child to West Hollywood, the best thing to do is to come check it out for yourself. It was definitely the right choice for my family and I look forward to getting more involved. Reviews are easy to hide behind. I just wanted to put the correct facts out there.

There is no real music program. I was singing. How this school got is distinguished in arts is beyond me. We have moved on as well. Perhaps the parent org needs to do some soul searching and be more honest about the direction they drive their fractured community.

My Son is so blessed to be in this Public school. The parents care enough to collaborate with the school and raise enough money so that our kids get so many extras that LAUSD can't provide. I am a single mom who can't put in all the time or money they ask, but I am so happy to contribute what I can. The teachers here are also all so dedicated and a big part of the success of the school.

My child has been attending West Hollywood Elementary since kindergarten and we absolutely love it! My son has received an exemplary education and I have been incredibly impressed with the teachers and the school in general. I must say I disagree with some of the negative reviews. The parent/FOWHE board, in my opinion, has done a wonderful job of ensuring our school provides the kind of quality enrichments that have been cut at many other LAUSD schools. I am personally not an overly involved parent at the school (as I work full-time), so I am grateful there is a parent body who is so very dedicated to providing our kids with all the 'extras'. I don't think it's fair to point a finger at those parents and to call them cliquey just because they devote a lot of time and energy at the school. It's easy to criticize. I think both the faculty AND the fowhe board TOGETHER do a wonderful job of making WeHo a great school. As for the former principal (last year), I was not impressed. I'm happy we are on the hunt for a visionary principal who can fill the shoes of our prior principal Mrs Charles

We've decided to move our daughter to another school. The Parents Association is a closed organization who have created an unpleasant cliquish atmosphere. They pushed the new Principal out without explanation over the summer vacation and now the school is again looking for a new Principal at the start of the year. Another major reason we are leaving is that last year the school raised $550,000 thru badgering emails sent weekly asking for more money and threatening cuts in services . What services? There is no art teacher, no real music program,no librarian, no extracurricular activities. Where does this outrageous amount of money go? An audit is in order.

This school is really just average. Its smaller with approx 400 students, which gives it a homey feel, but the cliques mentioned previously do exist, and their presence was frankly dominating and bullyish this past year. The booster organization puts lots of pressure on the parentbody (and faculty and staff) but is not inclusive. The school did lose its library, one of the quaint features. It has no librarian, no fine arts, PE once a week...really, isn't any different than many other schools with comparable student demographic. The school is in transition, seeking a new principal and new teachers at this very time, just week before it opens its doors for the next school year. Things could go either way.

My child enjoys the school has had great teachers and many friends. The new principal seems to be more concerned with her resume rather than any of her principal duties or enhancing the children's learning experience. It's very hard to watch this once great school get destroyed by a selfish leader. We will be leaving the school first chance we get.

I think the teachers the previous reviewer mentioned who seemed 'burned out and have lost their cool' are probably reacting to all the intense demands from the 'cliques of parents' who have created the 'negative social environment'. The old parents who rolled up their sleeves and got things done and turned this school around have all graduated out. When the school turned around it attracted that new 'entitled' parent you now see on the front lawn. They demand more and more from an already over worked staff and expect things will continue as they did before without putting in the work and even after they dismantle systems and procedures that were tried and true because they weren't willing to work as hard as the previous parents. Great Schools have Great Teachers that are SUPPORTED by Great Parent Groups and that means more than being a fundraising machine, it means being a Community. When you loose that, you end up with a bunch of disgruntled groups of parents and teachers, complaining about everyone else instead of getting busy and working on making this the best possible place for children to learn, grow and develop.

This school isn't what it once was but I am a bit more hopeful since we got a new principal. This new principal at least seems open to talking to parents instead of avoiding us. Maybe we will actually be able to meet with this new one without having to email to request an appointment 3 weeks out. This new principal seems more down to earth and seems like she actually might put children before good statistics.

It's unbelievable the gains this school has made in the past several years, including in student scores, parent involvement, staff and principal collaboration, technology use, innovation reading and writing programs, and the list goes on. The school helps support kids at all ability levels, and parent fundraising goes both toward academic intervention and for additional enrichment. The earlier review (Aug. 23) about not offering a GATE program was inaccurate. The school offers differentiated classes (not just clusters) for 2nd through 5th grade gifted students.

This school is just okay, not bad and not great either, some teachers are good, but some are below avarage. It is a small school that just get rid of their library so they can use it as a new classroom for expanding school. The school asks for 100% participation on countless fundraising.

This is a GREAT school. We are in our 4th year here, and have two children and WeHo. The teachers have all been outstanding. Our children are learning so much, and our daughter's CST scores, her knowledge base and aptitude reflect that. That said, school is what you make of it - you have to work hard and follow rules. So many parents who wrote negative reviews below complain but don't take accountability - their child's success isn't only the school's responsibility - it's largely the child's and parents'. The principal has been incredible and really turned this school around (API scores >900 for two years in a row)! The fundraising helps make the school what it is for our kids (dance, music, art, PE, TAs etc...). Parents take these things for granted. I am disappointed that not all families contribute, even a little. All parents should participate with fundraising, for any amount they can afford, 100%. We are all fortunate to attend this great school. Finally, I STILL don't understand why greatschools.net continues to give We Ho a 9/10, and Wonderland gets a 10/10. Get with the program greatschools!

I'm always left shaking my head when people think that if you donate money your child will get into a particular class or have a certain teacher. Our principal has nothing to do with the funds that come in from parents. Privacy when it comes to donating is taken very seriously. So, to think that the principal shows any favoritism is patently false. And, I'm always leery when people say things like, "suck up to administration" - what does that even mean? Having been at the school for a couple years, I have nothing but great things to say about the principal, the staff and office. Do I honestly believe our principal would call parents and tell them their child could have the "good" teacher? Please. All of our teachers are excellent (are some better than others? of course), so this idea that there is "one good" teacher is offensive to every teacher at our school. People will always complain. And, they will complain about things that aren't even reality. School is a personal thing. If you're considering West Hollywood, take a tour, meet the teachers, meet other parents, see how it feels to you. This school is great because of what the staff, teachers and parents have done.

This is a good neighborhood school, but I feel like the school is doing fundraising all the time and they are getting greedy and asking for more donation every year (this year $325,000). The school is no longer offers SAS class, so if you are looking for gifted/GATE class, this is not a right school for you. My child just got into the GATE program, so we decided to leave the school.

This is our second year at West Hollywood Elementary. We are so excited to be part of this family oriented community. The school has so much to offer and the parents go above and beyond to make the school so AMAZING! Mrs Charles is an excellent principal who goes out of her way to not only meet all the children and parents, but get to know us one by one. The teachers really pay attention to what each child excels in and allows them to learn in ways that suit them specifically. My daughter is very nurturing and last year she paid special attention to a boy with special needs and her teacher allowed her to work with him and help him understand lessons and homework. This was extremely positive for my daughter and made her very secure in her new environment. I was so impressed by the style of teaching and feel both my children are excelling on behalf of this school.

My daughter is happy with her school. It was a tough transition for me coming from a small private school into this 450+ school. Fundraising is a constant as well as parent volunteer sign-ups which can become a headache, but I understand it is probably the only way to keep school programs going after all the budget cuts. I do wish the criteria for the "gifted" classes were transparent as no one seems to know how kids are placed into these classes.

Horrible!!! The school only cares about the scores. My child went thru 6 substitutes in first grade and another 7 in second grade. The school didn't anything about that. The school call the parents for the kids NOT to take the CST test because they don't want the scores to go down. It is a lot of bully in the school and they don't do anything.

I've been at West Hollywood Elementary for 3 years and and I am so proud of the progress that the school has made in such a small amount of time. We are so lucky to have such an involved parent body and the ability to raise as much money as we do to help fill the gaps.Though I haven't taken the time to fully get to know the principal on a personal level, she has always taken the time to answer my concerns and questions in a very prompt manner. We are lucky she sets the bar so high, because our kids always rise to the occasion and amaze us!

I have 2 children at the school, and it is an incredible place. Very small, and most of the teachers are great. As with any public school struggling with budget issues there are challenges, but the parent group is very active and has raised enough money to keep music, PE, field trips, teacher's aides and other vital resources available to the kids. My kids love it there, and the administration is fantastic - very caring, positive energy, kid-focused.

As a dad it has been a rewarding experience having our child at WHE. He blossomed before our eyes. Is every grade perfect? Of course not. But is WHE a cut above the other offerings? Yes. Many parents show up and help in classrooms, help in carline, help bring in guest speakers or special assemblies. They clean up the campus or paint, they do a lot and they, like my wife and myself are happy to be a part of the community. Then tthere are those filled with bitterness and can only see negativity. And their ad hominem attacks on staff speaks more about them then WHE. Great school and proud to be part of the community.

I personally LOVE West Hollywood Elementary, and many of the times I have been on campus, I have seen and often spoken to Ms. Charles. My kid has only been here a short time but is already doing well and making friends. The teachers and staff do the best they can with the limited budget that LAUSD gives, and a focus on fundraising is key in making up the difference. Like any other public school, you'll get out of it what as much as you put into it.

I have 2 children at West Hollywood Elementary and am very happy with everything about the school. No school is perfect but this school comes close and I love the involvedment opportunities in and out of the classroom which some public schools do not encourage. Mrs.Chatles, the principal is down to earth and no nonsense and runs a tight ship that manages to keep all of the amenities we have with a decreasing state budget. The parent volunteers are passionate and hard working and have always been kind and welcoming to me. This school possesses the vision of a charter school, technology that rivals private schools, after school programs that seem like summer camp and an eclectic group of families that are very involved in their children's education.

This is my son's fifth year at WeHo, and each year gets better and better. I'm amazed at what the parent group, teachers and principal are able to accomplish to give our kids so much -- technology, art, theater, music, sports, field trips, the list goes on and on -- despite extreme budget cuts. It's through creative fundraising that we're able to live up to the hype, so I'm happy to give what I can. I especially appreciate those parents who practically live at the school, giving so much of their time and expertise to make our school even more awesome. Due to work constraints, I'm unable to volunteer like I used to, but am always thanked for the little I can do. I'm still thrilled to be a part of this school -- for myself and my son's stellar education.

My son and, we, his parents LOVE this school! My son just started first grade and could not wait to get back to school and see his friends. I realize now what a golden opportunity it was for us to have found a place for our son here, because the school is so popular. The staff are really incredible. Maybe we are just lucky to get good teachers but I hear from everyone that they are all great at WHE. There are so many extras for the kids, arranged by the parents group FOWHE which is full of incredibly friendly helpful souls, many of whom devote a crazy amount of time to the school as volunteers. I have lots of friends with kids at other schools who don't get anything like the opportunities and experiences West Hollywood Elementary offers at all. There are so many people here who all work so hard to give the kids an amazing education, and that's what it's all about. Right?

It feels like we are already part of a very special community, which is exactly what I had heard about West Hollywood Elementary.

A really terrific school. It is not charter or magnet but has a lot of innovative teachers who are bringing their A game. It has been a delightful experience to watch the school morph in a really cohesive manner. Ms Charles is a good leader. My friend checked out the school in June and she had her son in a private school (he is in high school now) and she said if he had been younger and it was an option for her, she would have been at WeHo in a minute. The parent group is thoughtful and engaging. It is probably hard for the old guard to welcome the changes but when they were in charge people had huge issues with them as well. It is called Life. NBD. A great school.

This is a great school and a great community. There are wonderful parents that go above and beyond to make sure that every child is receiving a quality education, wonderful enrichments, new technology, and in a safe and nurturing environment. In the past few years, LAUSD has gone through so much turmoil with budgets but the parent community has made sure that we have had all of the programs that LAUSD does not fund anymore. Unfortunately, there are people who will be discontent no matter what or where they are................

I continue to be impressed with West Hollywood Elementary! The parent meeting this morning was jam packed and so many people stuck around after to introduce themselves, talk about committees, ask questions, find answers, and talk about what we can do for our kids (the ultimate goal, in my opinion). I met new parents, seasoned parents, there was excitement in the air. Mrs. Charles is professional, approachable, smart, knows what she's doing and knows every child and parent by name. Every time I've had a question, she has been right there - amazing. The teachers (the ones we've had so far) have been awesome. Always bringing in new ideas, the technology is amazing and I can't wait until my younger child goes here. As with anything in life, you'll have to check out the school for yourself instead of just going by reviews. Not every school is a perfect fit for every family - even though I wish that were true. For us, we could not be happier with our little community school.

Can't wait to get my kiddo out of here. This school cares about 2 things, money and test scores to get money. What they do with that money does not make the school a better place for kids. It's a sad place that has plenty of stuff, just what LA doesn't need more of. I want to sign my name to this but I've seen how the school takes it out on kids when parents don't tow the party line around there. If you want computers, fancy fundraisers, and B.H. playdates, you can get that here. You can talk about test scores! test scores! test scores! test scores! You can get asked for money every week. If you want your child to come home happy about learning and feeling good about who they are - that is not what it is like. I know some very nice parents, and some really sweet kids there (so I give it two stars when I'd like to give it 1 and a half) but the people running this school do not seem at all interested in that stuff or talking about how to make a happier place for kids - almost no heart and soul. I want my kiddo to go where they raise kids to make the world a better place. Wish I knew where to find that in this city.

A sad disappointment. We were pulled in by the talk of community and working together to support the kids. The reality is VERY different. Unless you are trying to give her money don't expect Ms. Charles to give you the time of day. It's unfortunate that the fundraising and parent participation has turned the school into a political nightmare. If you are good at playing games this is the place for you. The latest is a fake "gifted program" where the kids aren't tested - just hand picked. Hmmm...that is totally legitimate I'm sure! We are out of there.

The parent group, which was the heart and sole of this school, seems to have undergone a complete transformation since we toured and started school. The warm friendly 'everyone is welcome' vibe has been replaced by a group of 'mean girls'. Everything seemed to go south mid year last year. At one of the parent meetings, a mom asked a question and received an incredibly harsh tongue lashing as an answer, 10 minutes later, the mom who tore off her head stood up and addressed the crowd in tears... it was the strangest thing. I know one mom who no longer drops off or picks up her child because the other moms in 2nd grade have driven her to tears, there was a dad 'fired' from a committee head position either because the 'power parents' didn't like him or thought he wasn't doing his 'VOLUNTEER' job well enough and another mom was called out in front of her child during morning drop off in front of the school for not contributing pledge drive money. The communication (use to be excellent) now comes in a condescending tone and centers completely around asking for money. The principal is about as warm and fuzzy as a cactus and regularly avoids parents unless she wants something from them.

I was so excited to receive news that the new API score is 905! Our daughter was in Ms. Libby's kindergarden class for 2010-2011 and she was a great match for our child. She was very supportive of our child academically and socially. Ms. Libby was very responsive to my husband and I when we had questions about our daughter's progress. The parent leaders in our class did an excellent job in keeping all the other parents up to date with pertinent information. The school community is very close. The parents are very involved. My daughter is very proud to go the school. We are looking forward to first grade!

The reason why I love West Hollywood Elementary School is because it offers its students an education in a modern environment where the students can learn about diversity in the world. It is a safe school in a neighborhood that is becoming increasingly advanced with technology and ideas. At the same time, I love the fact that it can offer quality education through applying lessons out into the real world, an important aspect of education that must become more important in schools in this growing global economy. My best friend's younger brother attends West Hollywood Elementary School and he is among the most well-rounded kids I have ever had the pleasure to hold a conversation with. I believe that with $20,000 , this school can unlock tremendous potential that is being held back with the chains of low budgets.

I have been a teacher at West Hollywood elementary school for 28 years. I have never seriously thought about teaching anywhere else. My collegues through the years, have always been supportive and collaborative. West Hollywood Elementary has always had parental support, but the last six years, parent involvement has multiplied tremendously. Our students are respectful and well-behaved.

We have a wonderful learning community of teachers, parents and students at a school that keeps getting better all the time. This is not an accident - the parents, teachers and principal have worked very hard to improve the quality of academics and enrich the learning experience. We were thrilled to be designated a California Distinguished School this year, but what also excites us are all the possibilities we see for this school - as a place where students can be immersed in academics, arts, and technology, in an exciting, fun, supportive environment. We are fortunate to have a new principal who can help lead the school in that direction, as well as parents fighting tooth and nail to provide the funding and enrichment the school needs to keep thriving. This school is the perfect fit for the family that wants a smaller, friendly school, and wants to be actively involved in their child's education. My son has been very happy here, and I enjoy all the families and kids I have come to know!

In the several years that my child has been at WEHOEL we have been apart of and watched improvements that a parent only dreams of for their child in a big city public school. Each year brings in more active parents, more engaging curriculum and in the last year a very energetic and proactive principal. This is exactly what we hoped when joined the school several years ago. I'm sure there will be even more good in our future.

I just love this place. My son is in kindergarten with Mrs. Marsh-Weiss. She's great with the kids...very warm, while still commanding their respect. I'm not sure how she keeps her patience and sense of humor being around 20 kindergartners all day, but she does a fantastic job. I also love all the kids in the class, as well as the parents I have met. I was a little nervous that all the 'involved' parents I read about in the reviews might have an elitist attitude. Absolutely not the case. They are so warm and welcoming and appreciate any time you can volunteer. The FOWHE group is really smart and amazingly dedicated. They are a big part of why I think this school works. The principal seems great and I love the office staff as well. Everyone involved with this school seems to have their hearts in the right place.

We love WEHO Elementary! My daughter is in 5th grade. We spent K-3rd at Rosewood and are SO glad we made the move to WEHO.It has a much better principal and is half the size. The teachers and Mr.Hum are amazing. My daughter moved up to second honors and then first honors at WEHO. She is comfortable there and really blossoming in the supportive environment.The arts prototype keeps them continually engaged in creative visual and performing arts too. Academics?Just look at the test scores and see how far above the average these kids are-it's no accident! Another big plus is the diverse student body.We are now on a quest to find a middle school of equal caliber.

I am very proud to be a WeHo parent but most proud of the parent/teacher involvement and the academic structure of this school.

My son loves it and the Principal is there at all times at your fingertips and committed to the children 110%. I am also very greatful for the group of parents who are committed on a daily basis to the school and it's acheivements.

We can t say enough great things about WHE. Having researched public and private in the area, and pulling my son out of a private school where we were not entirely happy, WHE has lived up to all our expectations. The teachers are phenomenal, the principal entirely on the ball, and the parental involvement is strong and resourceful. If you are in the area, I strongly recommend touring the school and considering it, even if public school was not a thought for you before. Another little secret is the new pre-school; even though it is only a half day program, it is perfect for local families who need a half day program.

My spouse and I were very concerned about LAUSD schools in general given the horror stories about a lack of funds, unmotivated teachers and staff and a curriculum aimed squarely at the average. What a great surprise WeHo Elementary has turned out to be! The principal, Mr. Hum, is very open to ideas and suggestions - it shocked me that he not only knew all the children by name but that he also knew their temperatments, strengths and weaknesses. The Kindergarten teachers are wonderfuly people - they aim to work with each child at his or her level and very genuine caring people. The parent's group (or booster club) Friends of West Hollywood Elementary is very active and enthusiastic and has managed to bring an amazing amount of resources to school in a short time. Great School - definitely worth a visit if you live in the area!!

This is an outstanding little school look for it to become west hollywood s best kept secret! The teachers are good-natured, but firm. The classroom is focused on achievement in many areas as well as academics; as a result, the children receive respect & appreciation for good citizenship as well and good grades. The class size is small (1st grade aprox 19/21 students per class), so everyone gets attention and assistance if needed. Parents participate regularly and the principal seems to know every child on a first name basis. I cant believe we lucked-out and found this gem of a school.

This school used to have a bad rap but in the last 3 years it has gone through some major changes. I was seriously going to homeschool my daughter because I was not happy with my school choices, then I found out about this little gem. The school size is small (about 300 for K-6) which is very important to me, and is super clean. The new principal rocks and teachers (many of which are new) really do care about the students. Full day K, wonderful enrichment classes, and free after school care are just a few things I like. My daughter started K there and is now in 2nd grade. My son will be starting K next year and I only get more excited about this school and what it offers each year that goes by.

The school is great, Its test scores are getting better as the parent involvement grows. We turned down going to a private school and a charter school in favor of going here and are very happy we did. My daughter loves the school and as parents we are happy that we can help at the school and participate in our childs learning. We have outside groups come in for the extra classes that LAUSD doesn't provide, and the support of the community is growing steady. We got in through open enrollment and find that most of the families live near the school and this allows for alot of the kids to play together after school in the local park, and feel like a little community. This school is the one to watch, we are very happy with the school and the education it provides.

I stumbled upon this (little known) school while scrutinizing every LAUSD/private school in my area. (And some outside my area) My daughter attended first grade last year and we could not be happier. This is a very small friendly and school. Equipped with just about all the ingredients that children need to learn. And whatever it does not have -the parent participation in the FOWHE will be sure that we get it asap...We have hired a new P.E program and have an Arts prototype grant that gives the majority of the kids a taste of Art in the classroom...Not to mention free afterschool care! This year we have a lot of new teachers starting and my kindergartner is so excited about attendeing the school that her big sister felt instantly comfortable in!

Since the local families have returned we now have a 501C3 booster club, Arts Prototype (art, music, drama), FocusFish Physical Education Program (offering international dance, hip hop, karate and other untraditional & traditional non-competive sports), Screen Writers Guild 5th-grade screen play program, Wizard of Art Volunteer Arts Program, clarinet classes, Hobby day 1x/month, FREE after school enrichment program, a flourishing vegetable gardens, Open Enrollment, and we have added 6th grade making WHE one of the only K-6 schools in the area. While we are constantly adding new programs we are thrilled at our progress in just two years and look forward to watching our school grow! Visit and see what we are all about!
