    Congratulations to Cheremoya Elementary! We are pleased to announce that Cheremoya has received the very prestigious award and recognition as a California Distinguished School by the California Department of Education.

    Cheremoya is a small neighborhood school which has an amazing sense of community! we have a wonderful group of very engaged parents and fantastic teachers. Cheremoya was recently acknowledged by the California Dept. of Education (!!!!) as a Distinguished School for academic achievement and community participation. I am very proud to be part of the Cheremoya community and know that while my child is here will get the education and programs many parents seek at the private or charter level. We may not have a grassy field but we are building the WIldlands. We may not have a pool but we have a partnership with the Hollywood YMCA to get the kids access to a pool. We DO HAVE art PE music advanced studies a garden lots of afterschool programs amazing teachers a strong principal and supportive staff and parents that care.

    My 11 years old son and my 6 years old daughter attend Cheremoya Elementary School and we love it. It is a very good school with caring and involved teachers. The principle and the staff are excellent. Parents are actively involved in supporting the school and Cheremoya Foundation provides funding to enhance the student education. The school is small in size so we all know each other. Kids are taking good care of in that small community.

    Cheremoya is a nice small school with a very friendly staff. Everyone is very dedicated to the education of the children. I have seen many generations come and go and they have been very successful. I hear that the area that needs some improvement is the cafeteria my nephew tells me it's very small and crowded. Overall I have heard great things about this school.

    Cheremoya has improved so much. Parent's are reaching for out for little "star" so they can shine. Our API scores have improved and now is 844. We have diversity and special education which shows how powerful our community can be.

    I've had a nephew and a niece graduate from this school. They have done a great job of teaching them and help them excel.

    I can only tell you that Cheremoya Elementary in Los Angeles is the BEST school EVER! Starting with the staff teachers and the principal are true professionals they really do care about the children. Both of my kids and some of my nephews have attended Cheremoya and I have nothing but praises for this School. I could change one thing about Cheremoya is that I wish Cheremoya was a Junior High as well a High School too so that my kids can keep getting quality education from quality educators.

    Cheremoya Avenue Elementary is a wonderful school full of bright engaging students and wonderful teachers who truly care about their students and support the school The Principle is constantly involved and well-connected to the community. We feel safe bringing the kids to and from school with an organized Valet system in which teachers parent volunteers and principle assist. I feel a part of the community. I also love the variety of programs incl. the option to enroll in Parker Anderson's rotation of extra-curricular options like "MatheMagic" and "Iron Chef" and the absolutely wonderful Garden Program run by the amazing EnrichLA. It has a gifted program (GATE) music program and a wonderful arts program...and so much more!... And the school just keeps getting better and better thanks to the solid Cheremoya Foundation run by highly involved parents who truly care about the welfare of this school. Besides all the wonderful people and programs it is a gorgeous architecture building from the early 1900's that has been kept up and recently renovated keeping its architectural integrity intact. Coming soon are Wildlands which will go well with the beautiful edible garden.

    Cheremoya Elementary is a great school and I am happy it was our choice. The Principle teachers and parents all seem to be a big nice family supporting each other for the one great common goal - the academic and personal development and enrichment of our children!!!

  • (6 months ago)

    We have been in the school since Pre-k each and everyone of the teachers feel like family the festivals the parent center the valet parking the office crew our Ms. Gina and the sense of respect authority and the crisp good humor of the Principal makes it a great delight to participate and be involved without forgetting the special and BIG helping hand that is the Cheremoya Foundation. Thank you Cheremoya Elementary!

    My son doesn't go to Cheremoya yet but I am following the Cheremoya foundation to help me make a decision. I am VERY impressed with what I've seen. The foundation of parents is not only dedicated and motivated to make the school the best it can be they are also going above and beyond. Devoting a lot of time to ensuring the students have access to technology arts and outdoor activities. I am very impressed!

    Cheremoya elementary is such a great school. I feel really lucky that my daughter attends this school. Teachers and staff are so helpful. They care so much about their students. My daughter loves her school!

    Cheremoya is the complete package - in the words of my first grader "Cheremoya is cool and I have made a lot of friends there I love the programs that we have and my teacher is very fun and smart!"

    I had the good fortune of lecturing to the 1st grade classes in 2009. I was so blown away by how well mannered the children were and what they were learning I took my soon out of his very chic private school and enrolled him into Cheremoya! I could not be happier. The school is on its way to becoming an ARTS MAGNET school which makes complete sense since it is in the Beachwood Canyon area of HOLLYWOOD. The school is accessing all the talent that lives within the neighborhood. We walk our son to school from the top of Beachwood and are starting to see other families walk there too. We also are starting to see Cheremoya kids/families at all the local places in the neighborhood we frequent like the Beachwood Cafe and Market the Oaks Gelsons and Bronson Park. It is thrilling to see the community come together an rally around its local school!! You must see for yourself. We are having a blast with it all. - a local parent

    My school is incredible! The Cheremoya Foundation has brought in funding for programs that the district could have never afforded to put in place. We have gardening drama music art and wonderful after school programs. Each and every teacher here is dedicated to making a difference and inspiring learning and creativity in their students. I love teaching here! What a privilege to grow with this school!

    Cheremoya is an amazing school. Every adult on campus is invested to the academic and social well being of each child. The students are fabulous. We have students of all ethnicities and backgrounds mixed together into this perfect little school. Last but not least the parents and families are supportive and very involved. A combination like this is hard to find anywhere else.

    This is our second year at Cheremoya Elementary School. It's a gem of a neighborhood school. The teachers and staff are fabulous and the kids are great. I am part of a strong parent group that works to support the excellence and bring programs such as art and drama to enrich the solid academic programs that are already in place. How nice to be able to walk down the hill to such a wonderful elementary school Yes to Cheremoya!

    Both of my children attend Cheremoya and we love it. It is small enough to feel homey which is very important when you're sending kids off to Kinder but more importantly the size builds a sense of community. The academics are great my children have had 2 National Board Certified teachers their classes get arts through Hollywood Arts Council and PE classes with teachers from the YMCA they go to Parker Anderson after school enrichment where they have taken classes like Rocket Science... We love the mix of having kids who live in our neighborhood kids that they went to preschool with and new friends. If you met my kids in person and heard them speak they would blow everything I've written away in about two sentences. Truly.
