    Everything is wrong about this school. The front staff are rude and needs customer service training. They deal with the public and needs to learn to be respectful and put a smile on their face. It makes me wonder if they really hate working there because they are doing a poor job on representing the school. The principal and teachers don't seem to care about the students nor the parent's concern for the children. No feedback on homework assignments or classwork so the students and their parents do not know progress of the students. When I asked my child "what did you learn today" and the response was "nothing we just play a lot". The teachers do no provide their emails so you either have to write notes and leave in the students backpack or call the main office. Tried writing notes---no response so don't know if they ever got he notes. Calling the main office is like going through hell having to deal with attitude problems from the office staff. REALLY?! I'd give it a zero star if I could.

    My son attends kindergarten he is supposed to be in special education based upon his IEP but they placed him in a class that does not serve his needs. We have complained and they said nothing. We are filing a complaint with LAUSD however everything is slow they don't call back to follow up. We are frustrated with Herrick and want nothing more than to have our son attend a better school where his needs can be met in a clean comfortable environment where horse feces do not surround the school sidewalks and walkways and the brains of the current teaching staff.

    This school is great because the teachers and principal are always on top of everything. I get a newspaper every week informing me all the upcoming events. Also the teahers and the workers who stay after school are very helpful. I am gad my daughter got to go to this school.

    This is a wonderful school my two have been attending this school for the past three years and have done great! I have found the principle staff and all of the teachers to be very helpful caring and understanding. The kids cant wait til school starts and are looking forward to another great year.

    This school has improved drastically-under new management! This school district has won awards for being a low income school and still making the grade on standardized testing actually they did wonderfull! I amsure that if you called the school they would be more than accomidating on the needs of the parents and students. This district also has a very high number of teachers with a masters degree. More than most districts!

    The school is unorganized. My daughter's kindergarten classroom had 3 different teachers last year. The children had to start from the bottom with every new teacher and were set back academically.

    i think the quality of teachers they select in this school are not based on the how great the teaching but i personally am having a great big problem with a teacher they put to teach my 4th grader this has been her 3rd teacher this year and i am not the only one having a problem with this teacher it has been brought up to the school and district but their really has been nothing done we still continue to write letters and conference with principal if you or anyone is able to help in this matter please let me know. Also i am a working parent and all of their meetings are in the mornings i would really would appreciate if they would accomidate us parents who work to be able to be more involed in these meetings.availability of music ect... is good.
