The best in the valley - teachers who are excited about their profession, a new principal who isn't afraid to take action, and a beautiful, charming and safe campus. Yes, it's part of LAUSD, but Calabash is a true gem - don't waste your money on private school!

Calabash is an amazing school with a fabulous new principal, Mrs. Gillis , who has made fabulous changes to the school and really listens to Calabash families. The PTA is doing an awesome job with events and fun for the kids. It's a shame when a family leaves a school and doesn't write the real truth about the school, but just in anger lashes out. Calabash rocks!!!!

New principal REALLY needs to listen to the parents. Does not put students first. PTA needs an overhaul! No communication, lack of answers. Don't understand what is really going on there. What a shame!

For almost a decade this was a wonderful school with a principal that was very in control. There were almost never any split grade levels. Now, the new principal and VP come to the school, and in the middle of the month, they decide to shake things up and make split classes. The principal must stand up to the district office and say no splits like the last one did. This is a great school... what's happening????? BK

If you are looking for freindly, warm and happy school for your child/ren to go and enjoy every moment Calabsh is your school, when your child wakes up in the morning and is happy to go to school you know that you picked the winner school.

Calabash Elementary School is a gem of a school, a hidden secret. There are no bad teachers!!!! It is a well run school with students learning and having fun while they do it. Come check it out!

Calabash has a new Assistant Principal who is extremely friendly and approachable creating a more inviting environment at the school. The school has a beautiful campus. Parents are active. Great small school.

This has to be one of the most beautiful campus's of any school. I have been with Calabash for many years, and the Assistant Principals change every year. It's a great student body.

Overall a nice small school,but due to it's size too many split classes. Principal lacks charisma and warmth and seems to discourage parent involvement. Some teachers are great and some are mediocre, but since school is so small there is far fewer options if your child gets one of the less inspiring ones.

My child and I both love Calabash! Everyone knows each other and we have had excellent teachers each year. The one year the teacher my daughter was assigned to was not a good fit the principal immediately suggested moving her to what turned out to be the perfect classroom for her. The other kids are generally good and we have not experienced any real problems with teasing or bullying in the years she has been there.

Calabash was a terrible experience for my child. The class was geared toward the students on the bottom of the learning curve. The classroom was dull and uninviting. There are some well meaning and hard working PTA moms. I agree, don't let the test scores fool you. Not the place for a motivated learner.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 16, 2006

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. The principal is not willing to talk with parents regarding concerns. There are a few hard working and dedicated PTA moms, but the school as a whole is very poor. Don't let the test scores fool you.

Calabash is an amazing school with an incredible Assistant Principal and Principal. The teachers are always working hard to bring out the best in their students. The small campus size ensures that my children are not anonymous, but rather, are cared for.

Fantastic, new Library Media Center and Computer lab. Before and after school care, reading, music and art programs, homework club, safe, separate kinder areas, amazing Special Ed classes, recently a California Distinguished School. Teachers creative, caring...happy, happy kids. Parent volunteers,though few, are incredibly dedicated.

Calabash is not a good school due to classroom are small and overcrowded, teachers are not very nice, not organize except very few of them. This school needs a new management team.

If you care about your childs emotional and academic wellbeing this is not the school for you. The lower grade teachers are rude and uncaring and the principal is worse.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 19, 2006

The teachers are wonderful. Discipline and student safety are a high priority but academics top all. The teachers, like everywhere else in California are competing for test scores. No extraciricular programs but the they do have afertschool supervised playground time.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 16, 2006

There is no GATE program or SAS. Playgrounds are limited to bounderies for each grade. School has a lot of combined grade classrooms. Principal is unapproachable and rude. Academics are adequate for the average student

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
