I love Crenshaw Elementary. We moved here 3 years ago and I used this website to pick schools for my children. I have not been disappointed. The teachers and staff have always worked hard to give the children a great educational experience. All four of my children love this school!
I have had a mixed experience with the school, the teachers are great, but the administrators are poor, I had requested my child be tested for the IEP program and was denied after a very brief meeting. I believe the school clearly is run by the budget which is struggling at this time. Within the 2nd 9 weeks we were already discussing retension which I feel is a little premature. If we know there are areas that a child needs extra help early on, help should be offered in order to avoid retension, a more proactive approach would be more reasonable. Class sizes are too large for any child to receive any kind of attention.
