My daughter is doing great in the kindergarten classroom. The teacher and aide work close together to make sure my child is learning. The communication with the teacher is unbelievable.

The Worse!!! There is a revolving door with quality teachers, the main office staff breaks confidentiality, the current principal has no time to meet with parents, and there's frequent fighting within students. The 1 good thing about the place is the teachers for the most part really do care, but the good one's always seem to leave for 1 reason or another. This may be 1 of the better schools in the area, but that's not really saying a whole lot........don't waist your child's education at this joint!!!

The are all very dedicated to the growth of the students at Catalyst. While there are small changes going on all the time (the school is just starting), everyone who works there are kind and knowledgeable. I recommend this school of anyone who is looking for a decent all year round school in the lawndale community
