Amazing school and great over all community for both learning and for families to engage. We are over 8 years into our experience with two children, and wouldn't change a thing. As an affiliate Charter school there are of course limitations on what can be done outside of the bounds of LAUSD but the level of parent/community engagement and fundraising definitely helps to set it apart. We think that you would be very hard pressed to find a better elementary school in the area.

This is our 8th year as parents at Kenter. We absolutely love the school and the surrounding community. The education that our children have received has been outstanding. The campus is always being improved and the grounds are well kept. From the amazing teachers, to extra activities, to the annual Gala fundraiser, we have been deeply thrilled with our experience at this incredible school.
