This is the worst LAUSD school that I have ever seen my son from first grade to fifth grade was A and B student with maybe one or two C's over the course of five years when he got to Marina Del Ray the first two weeks he was bullied threatened and completely fearful of threats from other students. My son was told by other students that if he snitched on anything he would be jumped. Furthermore, the students have no respect for anybody my son basically has gone downhill receiving F's on his report card and his behavior has changed tremendously I will pull him out of this school right now! Because of this school needs a major makeover with teachers and how they connect to students. They can't help students be better because they don't have any control over the majority of the students. Students that don't want to learn. Are making it hard for kids to do better they end up falling through the cracks. Something has to change. I will not let my son who has the potential to be a great student become the worst student based on how the school is run..
