I am thrilled to be a parent at calabash. The principle is on the ball, the PTA parents are amazing. The teachers are caring and very good. They have a full time librarian, a wonderful science lab, among other things. I really couldn't ask for more! AMAZING school!!

Calabash is a wonderful school. If you read other reviews about the principal being a little intense, it's true she's not warm and fuzzy. But she is nice, capable and she runs a tight ship. I don't need the principal to give me hugs in the morning, i need her to keep the school and teachers running in an orderly fashion and Mrs Gillis does that to a T. The teachers are all very kind and seem to have a genuine love for the kids and what they do. The class sizes are relatively small and the PTA sponsored enrichment programs are great. The parents and students are a really tight knit community and they do everything to make you feel welcome and involved in the schools. I have nothing but praise for this school, the teachers, the administration, the PTA, everything!

If you want your child to go to a school were teachers have no compassion or patience. Were they don't care about bullying or who is really at fault. This is the school to send your children too. This school taught my children to dislike/hate school and not ever want to attend . Makes me as a parent, really sad to see my kids this way.

Calabash is a wonderful school & is truly "the gem of the Valley"! I have 3 girls & my oldest just finished 5th grade & will be going on to middle school in the fall. I cannot begin to say how sad I am for her to leave Calabash! She has loved every day since we moved her from a Las Virgenes school that we were permitting into. Calabash is our home school & I wish we never permitted out of it! My other 2 girls just finished 2nd & 4th grades & also love Calabash!! We have had many of the teachers there & have not had a bad one in the bunch! The small school feeling is wonderful- we know so many people & feel it is like a tight-knit community. The principal runs a tight ship, but is approachable. The school has some wonderful events including a fall festival, trunk or treating, holiday program, multi-cultural festival & an award winning ballroom dancing program for 4th & 5th graders! There are so many opportunities for parental involvement & I have made so many great friends since coming to the school! My 5th grade daughter will certainly miss Calabash & I will continue to value my remaining time at this wonderful gem of a school! I

Calabash is a great school. What matters more than the principal (doesn't have great bedside manner) is the teachers and the families. The kids are challenged yet nurtured. The PTA is active and the small size makes is feel like a community. The kids have the opportunity to participate in computer lab, art programs, YMCA led PE, Drama, Band, science fair and do much more. The principal takes her job seriously and she endures the kids are safe. She is always available to address issues even if you may not agree with her, she will listen and take action.

this post is in reply to the parent that posted "Help!" yesterday...All 3 of my kids have attended Calabash since 2010 & all I can say is that I wish I had found this school sooner! as far as the principal it is just a personality thing (my point of view) she is definitely great from what I see. since I have 3 kids I think I have had encountered nearly every teacher there by now. I have not had any bad experiences with any teacher or any staff member. One of my absolute favorite things about this school is the level of parent involvement! it really is like a small community - we have family movie nights, father daughter dances, mother son events, restaurant nights, festivals, trunk or treat & countless other school events that really bring all the families (if not most) together. just yesterday we had open house where the school cheerleaders performed, we had an Alex's lemonade stand led by one of the families, the 3rd grade classes held a scholar "wax museum" where they dressed & played the part of a scholar they researched & we had the annual science fair with over 200 entries. my kids are definitely receiving a well rounded class A education...hope this helps

Help!! We are trying to decide if Calabash is the right place for our kids. We met the Principal and we are not sure what to think. She seemed a bit rude but I do not want to judge her too hastily. Can any parents out there let me know if this is just a personality thing or if she is hard to approach with issues? I want to give the school a chance but my first impression sort of scared me off a bit. Please advise if you parents out there have any input on this I would love to hear it.

The good: We've had two kids at Calabash since kinder and nearly all their teachers have been EXCELLENT. Many have gone way above and beyond the call of duty. The mediocre: Parent involvement at this school is weak. The PTA is dedicated and there's a small group of parents that volunteer their time but, for the most part, when it comes to fundraising and helping out at school events, most parents want nothing to do with it. The bad: Sergeant Gillis. She does absolutely nothing to create a nurturing, fun environment for the kids to learn in. It's pretty obvious to most of us that she has her sights set on climbing the LAUSD administrative ladder and all of her decisions are motivated by her own personal goals. Having said all this, our kids have received a great education at Calabash, made great friends and our overall experience has been very positive.

WOW! The rebuttal post about the parent who complained about the winter show has just been deleted. So much for free speech! Let me reiterate that the complaint was unwarranted -- this parent should be thanking the principal and administrators for complying with the City of LA Fire Codes. Due to the high enrollment, the auditorium cannot accommodate the large crowds that usually accompany the winter show.

I love Calabash... Great school, super friendly environment. I love that there is a lot of focus on academics, but arts are not forgotten :-) The teachers are very good and pretty friendly to us parents. Mrs. Gillis is a great leader. She is very strict; however she has a soft spot in her heart for the kids, she knows every kid by name and I love how she dresses up for Dr. Seuss day. Parents are very involved and they are very down to earth and friendly. It's a great environment for my kid and she is very happy here. I am happy too. So glad I chose Calabash for my daughter instead of our neighborhood school.

This school is an absolute gem. It has a small, neighborhood school feel with an incredibly involved and invested group of parents. I'd rank Calabash a 6 out of 5 if I could. Principal Gillis is an incredible leader and sets the bar for what a school principal should be. The teachers are ALL wonderful here; truly not a bad apple in the bunch. Could not be happier with the school. Tax dollars well spent!

Calabash is truly a wonderful school with amazing leadership, parents, staff, and students. I am relatively new at this school, although I have been in teaching for many years. I am always amazed at the dedication of all administrators, teachers, teacher assistants, and staff (custodial, lunch, etc.) that put 100% of their energy into making Calabash an exemplary academic, safe, and respectful school for all students. I feel it a privilege to work here.

I LOVE CALABASH! My son just finished his first year in Kindergarden and I couldn't be happier. His teacher was expecting and would be having her baby during the school year but they made sure to keep their substitute teacher the entire year so the kids wouldn't be subject to too much change. The parents are great and even though the free after school program is for kids in 2nd grade and up, I am glad that I decide to send my son here. I can't wait until my daughter starts there as well.

My daughter has attended this school since 1st grade. I have been very happy with the teachers and parent involvement. I do like the current principal, but often feel that she needs to "update" the needs of the school and extend her knowledge of current technology. I often feel as if she refers to an outdated LAUSD manual and at times seems unwilling to explore options that could greatly improve the school. That said, I think she truly cares about each student and the families: she seems to know each child by name and has a caring interest in their educational future.

Calabash has changed tremendously over the past 6 years since a new principal arrived. Once the small gem of the valley the school has been overtaken by non sensical rules, little care for families with both parents working and a principal who is more like a dictator. It seems that rules and order have over taken concern, care and any sort of individual treatment of students. A shame that there is not a concern for the big picture. Since becoming a charter school in 2011 there has been little investment in technology, science or extra curricular activities other than a few more field trips. The leadership has become a little cold in the past few years.

Calabash simply cares. My daughter is in first grade and her teacher is simply amazing. The parents and staff work together to create a feeling of family. The school has only 400 students, so most of the staff knows your child by their first name. They challenge each child to be the very best they can be. They are integrating new technology like ipods into their class curriculum (which my child absolutely LOVES) as well as their after school intervention. A private school education for FREE!!!!

I have been a part of Calabash for the past 6 years. My son attends Middle School now. The first thing students are taught here is to be kind and respectful. As a sixth grader, he stands out from the rest of the students. He was not only taught the academics, but how to organize, prepare and learn. The principal is amazing! If you don't like her, it s probably because you don't like rules. She runs the school with a BIG picture in mind. The GATE classes don't have "only" GATE kids. And, that's the beauty of it. I didn t want my GATE child to be surrounded by only "gate" kids-when the real world is not that way. How would he learn to be patient, polite and thoughtful towards others learning with him? He was challenged from day one by with teachers, and he built self confidence and character. The quality of school Calabash is -is more than superb! Each staff member works towards the benefits of the students. Technology, the Arts and science and music play a big role in the curriculum at Calabash. I feel fortunate about being a part of Calabash because besides the students, principal, teachers and staff it has some great involved, caring parents too!

This is our first year at Calabash and I am very happy we chose this school. My child is in kindergarten and doing very well. I was concerned that my kid might not be challenged in a public school, but her teacher presents an exciting curriculum that allows her to deepen her understanding of the material. The children are all very respectful and very bright! The PTA is awsome and very welcoming. The principal seems on top of thing and In my experience very approachable. Overall, I would highly recommend this school.

Still "BEST SCHOOL EVER". This is my 3rd year at Calabash and I couldn't have made a better choice, Each year gets better and my daughter is so happy to be there everyday!! From my observations, all the staff seem to know every child by name. The Principal and the Teachers take great care in placement of the children in classes based on their needs. It is like being at a private school. Parent involvement is great considering the size of the school and even then, working parents take their time off to partipate in scholl and class activities. We love it so much.

These children are learning academically and socially. They are such a well behaved and respectful group of children. The parent involvement is stellar and the Principal, Ms. Gillis, was able to put a team together of parents and teachers that got Calabash approved to be a charter school for September 2011. My child is happy, learning and has made some good friends already. We hope this all continues

My daughter is in Kindergarten at Calabash and she loves it. The parent involvement at this school is phenomenal. There are lots of after school activities that are offered and the kids really enjoy Artopia with the parents as well as all the other extracurricular activities Calabash has to offer. The children here are from all walks of life and from all different races which was very important to my husband and I when we moved into to the area for this school. Although the principal, Mrs. Gillis, seems a bit stern, strict and standoffish, she is good at responding to any concerns brought in by parents. She is also there for every single schol event which is is pretty darn cool. I look forward to the following years my children will have at Calabash.

The principal, Ms. Gillis, strives to stay involved in all the school activities. She is always walking the campus, saying hi to the parents and children and is very responsive to emails. I have never been to an event where she was not in attendance. You can tell that she is genuinely concerned about the progress of the school and it's students. My daughter was in Kinder last year and we really loved the close knit community that Calabash had to offer. The parent involvement is stellar. You couldn't ask for more from any school. They fought hard to raise enough money to keep our librarian, knowing how important it is for our children. They PTA offers great enrichment classes for the kids and the After School Program is well run and takes great care of the children. We are very happy with this school.

No school is perfect and all things considered we have an amazing teacher group, parent group, principal and office staff. This is not my home school and I chose to send my son here. There isn't another scholl, public or private, where I would send him. Kudos to all that volunteer to make our school so great!!!!

After 3 years at Calabash, I continue to be impressed. The small school community affords more individualized attention. My experience with our teachers has been wonderful, and the parent involvement truly sets us apart. My children are happy and achieving above average goals in this environment. The only reason I don't rate the school as perfect, is the fact that we don't utilize the accelerated reader program as we should. Otherwise we are thrilled.

I have been a part of calabash for 3 years. 2 years with Ms. Shaffer and this past year with Ms. Gillis. Both the Principals have different styles- but both the principals love the kids, put the school issues as # 1 and are always there for parents. Go to school at recess or lunch-Ms. Gillis is playing handaball or jump rope withthe kids. See has monthly chat with the principals and ALways available via phone. I am suprised to learn some parents cannot find Ms. Gillis. 7:50 am she is there at morning line up and all day around campus. Calabash is a fine school with great set of students and parents. We invite you to our movie night on 6/12 at 6 pm and find out for yourself. More info on www.calabashelementary.com

Mrs. Gillis is a hands on principal who wears tennis shoes at lunch and interacts with our kids in activities. Calabash has an inviting volunteer base of parents and PTA board that welcomes new ideas and annually is expanding fun events for the kids and families. Calabash is a hidden gem of a school.

The school has a wonderful library computer lab and excellent programs like Art Trek and books and beyond. Parents are very involved and helpful. The PTA is warm and inviting to all new parents.

Moral is low amongst both parents and teachers. The new principal is uninvolved and seems to spend her time implementing new, unnecessary rules instead of dealing with the real issues.

I have been a part of Calabash for over fifteen years. It is one of the finest schools in the entire LAUSD. The teachers are awesome the Principal is innovative and runs a tight ship. The PTA has many great ideas and fun functions for both adults and kids. Heck even the CHRISTmas party was unbelievably fun. This school is a great place and if you get a chance to have your child attend there , consider your self lucky. I have also seen a few disgruntled families attempt to discredit the school for their own petty personal reasons , and it is sad. I understand their anger , but it does not justify spreading falsehoods about a great school and staff. My challenge to you is to simply visit Calabash.

If your child is motivated to learn then run far away from Calabash. The teachers teach to the bottom level of the class, so any high achieving kids are bored to tears.

Both of my children go to Calabash and honestly, I'm fed up with it. I've already begun to look for another school for them to attend. The classes are extremely overcrowded, the teachers (with exception of only 2 of them) seem to have no idea how to teach their classes properly. I've had several conferences regarding many different issues hoping to get something solved, but unfortunately the principal seems not to care. So my advice: it's not worth it, find somewhere else to send your children.

My both children go to Calabash school. It is a very small school and one of the reasons that I like it. But, because of the lack of funding, especially this year, there is no good quality extra activity like Music or Sport. But the teachers, academically, are very good. The other problem is the increased number of split classes, that I think would affect children's progress in both upper and lower grades.

Calabash Street Elementary School is a wonderful school with an outstanding Principal, Vice Principal, office staff and very committed teachers. It is located in a beautiful & peaceful neighborhood. We feel very lucky to have been accepted in under open enrollment and are committed to help in any way possible to keep our school one of the best in the valley. Most importantly, our child is flourishing and absolutely loves it here!

We have been very happy with this small school, tucked away in a pleasant neighborhood. We chose it by visiting several others through open enrollment. We have had good experiences with the teachers, classes and the overall environment. Our child has thrived here with a nice balance of friendships, education and life experiences.
