Finally both my kids are at Calvert. I volunteer every morning and am so grateful I have this opportunity. I get to see how the staff and teachers interact when parents are not around and it is great to see. I am so happy with this school and am happy to see what this school year brings.

Calvert Street School always had caring teachers. I was the PTA Treasurer when my daughter attended in the 80's and 90's. I am so pleased that Calvert is now a charter school. More freedom on how allotted money is spent. I always felt sad that the kids had to play on that asphalt jungle. It would be well over 100 degrees even in the spring. My daughter went there before there was any air-conditioning, it was brutal in the classrooms. Congrats to all the great parents and staff for all these wonderful changes you have made.

As a current Calvert Parent I would like to comment on the local residents assessment of playground activity and behavior. It is completely unfair to give this school two stars based off playground activity seen from outside the gates of Calvert. The principal, teachers and activity personnel take behavior seriously and have high, yet reasonable, standards for the children. They are children - they run, play, shout, disagree and yes, sometimes fight. But it's unfair to portray the school as if it doesn't care. Calvert is a very nice school, with a principal that is trying very hard to create a positive environment for the school. This school is growing and will be one of the top rated elementary schools in Woodland Hills within the next five years.

I am a proud Calvert parent. I have a daughter in 4th grade and another recent graduate that is now in seventh. I too live on Jumilla avenue and have seen the school's campus beautifully transformed from an asphalt heat island to an urban green space. I have participated in various projects that have included removing 150 cubic tons of asphalt, planting 200+ trees, built an outdoor classroom teaching garden and applauded when some very persistent parents created our grass field and running track through countless meetings and phone calls to the district. I am proud of the wood chips that my daughters and I have spread of the compost that we have hauled, and the second Saturdays we spend cleaning up the school. We have had great teachers every year. They are engaging and inspiring. Most of all my kids are happy and safe on campus. All the students are. It could easily be the happiest campus in LAUSD. They love going to school as much as they love going to the outdoor movie nights on the school lawn. We did this together, our community, for our children. Please go and volunteer at your own school now.

While I appreciate the above comments, as another Jumilla neighbor to Calvert, and current Calvert parent, I just want to add that the office at Calvert is always open to community support and welcomes your feedback. I encourage you to stop by and speak directly to the staff about your concerns. We have been at Calvert for eight years - between two kids - and see it getting better and better inside the classroom and out!

I have three children at this school. The eldest has gone from Kindergarten and is now in the 5th grade. Throughout our 6 years here we have found the teachers and staff to be dedicated and passionate. Our kids are thriving and learning and growing in a very positive nurturing environment. There are wonderful diverse families at this school who give a lot of time and energy to keep the school operating in a fun clean modern way. We are excited about the new science lab, the new computer lab, and all the new opportunities for the kids to learn and grow.

Calvert Charter is a great school. My children love going to school each day. They love their teachers and their teachers love them. The staff is all wonderful, from the Principal all the way down to the aids. Each and everyone one of them really care about the kids and getting to know them. Calvert is a great community school and it shows in how many parents know each other and spend their free time helping to make sure that the school is kept clean. There are so many wonderful things at this school. From computer labs(2), science lab, art room, and so much more. The PTA and staff really work hard to make sure all the kids are getting as much as they possibly can.

My school is an amazing place. Nowadays with public education it is extremely hard to find a school that meets your child's needs. Calvert has become that for us. It is a school that has built a great community feel to it. Staff and parents work together and have created an environment that is safe and enriching for the students. I am very fortunate to have my children attending this school.

Calvert St. Elementary, which is now proudly called, Calvert Charter for Enriched Studies is by far the best elementary school in Woodland Hills, if not the entire West Valley (not that I'm partial or anything, of course not!) ;) Let me just say, this is our last year (we've reached the 5th grade point) and can barely stand the thought of that. It's going to be strange and sad to not be engaging with the incredible teachers and staff on a daily basis. Calvert is like family, Calvert is our community! We will surely miss it!

My daughter's first day at Calvert was on August 13th and she entered 3rd grade. The previous 3 years were spent at a high priced private school. My husband and I are beyond thrilled about our decision to make this move! Our daughter has never been so happy and positive about school. The Principal Mr. N is enthusiastic, hands on and exceptional. At each Friday morning Assembly he recognizes between 15-20 students that he "catches being good". He states what the good deed was and the value that it exemplified. Just in this early stage my daughter is learning more about values then ever. She noticed that a girl in her class was always alone at recess and it really bothered her so she invited the girl to play tag with her and told me she made a special point to say that the girl could ALWAYS play with her and her friends. This says so much about the school environment and the safety she feels in taking risks and being a good person. As for academics, her teacher Judy Falzone is excellent. My daughter has told me how good Mrs. Falzone is at explaining concepts to her in a way that she understands. If it sounds like I couldn't be happier its because really, I couldn't!

I have a 3rd grade boy and kindergarten boy in Calvert. I enjoy this school because it is a true school that cares about the kids. From the PTA to the teachers to the Principle and office staff. If you want a school that wants the best for your child this school is it. School programs cut by budget is replaced by the PTA fundraising. Parents and teachers working on a saturday once a month to make our school looking nice. My 3rd grader have made good friends. This school I feel is the prime example of what other elementary schools should be.

After spending a year interacting with the principal and some of the "leaders" of the groups on campus. I will not be returning. I tried to address real concerns for my daughter with the principal regarding the fact that teachers kept changing in her class. He never answered any of my questions, yet instead accused me of being sarcastic and rude. Also I believe if you are going to have 4year olds on your campus (preK program) , you should also have extra curricular activities for those children. While we lucked out with the permanent sub. I refuse to reenroll my child in this school. Our family tried to volunteer many times at the school but only ended up frustrated by the lack of organization or the want by the school to include the younger children.

My daughter went to this school in second grade, but for third grade she went to another elementary school that is considered "better rated" in the area because we had moved into that school's area. Believe me, Calvert is the best elementary school in the WH district! Our experience was so negative at the other school, staff was cold and unapproachable. A year has passed since our daughter attended Calvert and staff still remember my daughter and our family. She is doing much better academically because she is happy and loves school again. The staff at Calvert really care about your child's success and happiness, not just concerned with their "image" and "ratings". It is so great to see our daughter in love with school again! I would recommend Calvert to anyone who wants BOTH happiness and acedemic success for their child!

I first came to Calvert when my niece and nephew went here 3 years prior to my son starting kinder. I loved the diversity. The office staff is amazing they know every child by name. The entire staff on site is amazing! They treat the kids as if they were their own.The new principal is great. He wants our kids to be safe and to know that they are safe when they are left in the Calvert staffs care. He deals with behavior quickly and fairly.The teachers are wonderful. All of my sons teachers were great. There is one that he's had since Kinder and for 3 and now 5th. This teacher has taught my son more than state standards. Calvert teachers not only teach the state standards but they teach the children about respect and about caring for your community. Calvert children know what the word community really means. Calvert fights for the arts to remain at the school even with the budget. They have fun educational field trips, a wonderful vegtable garden, a huge grass field, lots of trees, and they are finishing up a pond. Calvert is truly a community school it's small but not too small.

What can I say? Calvert is a wonderful neighborhood school that makes parents and children feel at home. We have been at Calvert for 6 years now and unfortunately it is time to say goodbye... Most of the teachers are great! We were very very lucky.. We had the best and it's sad to say bah bye to my Calvert family. There's a very special teacher there that truly gets to know each and every single one of his students. You know who you are and I can never THANK YOU enough for teaching my son for 3 of the 6 years he was at Calvert.. We started with you and I am truly thankful that we are ending our years at Calvert with you! You knew how to motivate him and all your students... LAUSD needs more teachers like that. Overall our experience at Calvert was GREAT! Loved the staff, the parents that were there to help with PTA and other activities. I am going to miss your faces. Calvert has been our home away from home for the last 6 years... If you want that small school feel... Calvert is the place!! :)

As an alumni of this school, I'll have to say that I had an excellent experience here.

I have worked at Calvert for a while. I really like the new principal. He has a different way of working with the community and staff, than the previous administration. I agree that he has room for growth, but the community has asked for several things and he is addressing them. Higher test scores - he has implemented the learning center, intervention that is meaningful, more focus on core instruction, etc.. Better behavior standards - students who don't behave are dealt with (and their parent's too). If you want different results, you have to do things differently.

As a parent of this school, I wish all comments (positive & negative) would be "allowed to remain on the page"! Both types of comments allow growth & changes which is always good! It's sad that others would "report" comments that parents feel strongly about, just because he/she might not agree! I noticed my comment (early 2012) has been removed. I did not mention "names"! I simply wrote about "areas" the school needs improvements in! Dominating the page with "only positive feedback" will not improve test scores and increase state funds! Instead, it will just hide any genuine opinions or concerns parents have to make Calvert the best it can be! No need to sugar-coat it people! Keep it real so we can work as a team to fix whats wrong!

My child has attended Calvert Elementary since he was in Kindergarten he is now in 2nd grade. Our school has had a great transformation in the past two years, due to our new principal and our strong PTA. We are currently going trough a beautification project that is improving the appearance of our school. The teachers are great and they are very involved in our children's education, best of all we are a small school and our kids do not get lost in the crowd. My child is attends Creative Kids it is the after school program that Calvert provides for all working parents. He completes his homework and has time to play with his schoolmates while being supervised I think the only thing we are lacking is parent involvement. I know, I know we are all very busy but it is important to become involved in our children's education. I welcome anyone that has any doubts about our school to come and visit and see how much we've improved.

In response to the April 1st review to the expense of the after school programs. Most classes are for 8 weeks and run between $80 and $100 - including materials. The only class that is more expensive is a 2 hour a week class that has 10 classes (20 hours) for $200, which is a Musical Theater production class. I think the classes are quite reasonable for the quality being offered.

Dear Parents, I am the director of the L.E.A.P. After School Enrichment Program, which began enrichment classes here at Calvert on Nov. 12, 2007. I must say that the more I know of Calvert, the more I love this school! My highest regard goes to the incredibly knowledgeable and caring Principal, AP, and Staff. The children are respectful and enjoyable - which says a lot about the teachers and the school as a whole. L.E.A.P.'s Musical Theater's talented Calvert cast just finished it's first production of 'Annie's Broadway Adventures.' I began the LEAP Program hoping to make activities available to the children that they might not otherwise have a chance to experience. As always, I look forward to your calls or emails with comments and suggestions. It's all about the kids! Thank You for your support!

Think of Calvert as, 'Under New Management.' The new principal has a very friendly and positive attitude. The parents on the PTA are also very friendly and open to new ideas as well as 'new blood' helping to run things. Calvert is a 'High Achieving' school. Many of the students have been identified 'Gifted' and teachers at each grade level have received specialized training to enrich the curriculum. It is small, only about 400 students, so it has a small town feel. Also, Calvert has some really nice programs going on during the school day. There is a Music teacher, an Arts Program with specialized Art, Dance, and Drama teachers, and a Physical Education program with two Coaches. Calvert has a beautiful, well stocked, computerized library with internet access and a librarian. Calvert is the best kept secret in the neighborhood.

Calvert Elementary is a school on the verge of great things, while maintaining the comfort and security a small neighborhood school provides. Parent involvement is growing, and the school is in the process of administrative changes that will bring new ideas and revitalized energy to the campus. The teaching staff is wonderful - teaching to the individual instead of to the test. The diverse student population is such an asset with many different language heard on the playground. There are strong music and P.E. programs as well as visual arts through participation in the Arts Prototype Program. Efforts are being made to beautify the campus and bring more after-school enrichment. Things are happening at Calvert! I highly recommend Calvert Street School!

My daughter attends this school currently and I wasn't keen on the idea before I even enrolled her. Due to this school being in my area, this was the only school that she was able to attend. The curriculum is very poor. My daughter is advanced, and all the kids are taught on one level. For kids that are behind, the curriculum is perfect. But for kids that are above standards, the curriculum is poor. The principal is not geared towards helping advanced students. The school communicates things happening at the school the day before an event. There aren't any strong teachers that push the kids to work hard and to be leaders. The teacher that my daughter has is a push-over teacher. The kids delegate the class and manipulates her. That is clearly seen through just observation. I would not recommend this school at all.

My child has attended Calvert for the past two years and I couldn't be more pleased. He was identified as a GATE student and has been receiving an excellent education. His teachers have been caring, kind, and on the mark with teaching. The office staff has always been kind and helpful to both myself and my child. I have found the principal is always available for any concerns that I have had and addresses them immediately. The arts and music programs have had a very positive effect on the instructional program. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

I worked at the school for two years and left voluntaraly. The administrators are more worried about their personnal appearance to the district than the kids. The PTA is virtually nonexistant, and more worried about their own children than the school at large. Kids are allowed to fall through the cracks here-something that is unfair and tragic. There are several teachers in dire needof retiring-they bring down the staff attitude a s a whole.

For parents considering this school, think again. There are some caring teachers but most are rude, uncaring, negative, and unaware that they are. The PTA is largely involved, however they promote unhealthy snack sales and overcharge the poor kids for these sugar filled snacks after school. This school needs lessons in caring, nuthering & respect towards children. Parent

I was somewhat disappointed in this school, which is highly regarded in our area. My son had an excellent experience in kindergarten, but my son's first grade teacher expected him to already know how to read and write, and wouldn't help him catch up with his writing. There was too much emphasis on testing. The school used to have an excellent music program, but this has been discontinued. There is an active PTA program, and the principal is excellent. When my son tranferred to a private school, he was ahead of his classmates in reading, but behind them in math.

It's a nice cozy school. I like the small class sizes. It could use a little more parent involvement. With a little more energy, this could be a great school.
