I have two children (1st &3rd) and I am not impressed with the education. The teachers seem overworked and have wittenessed a teacher talking about private matters of a student to other parents. Music is available at a cost, art program is nice, no sport and the after school program has children of all ages that bully one another. The facilities are average. Many rats and mice in the classroom. Supplies are limited due to LAUSD budget cuts. Parent involvement is very cliquish and they don't really want your help, only your money. Unsure of any awards. Fieldtrips are costly and you must drive on the fieldtrips. The setting is beautiful in the mountains.
