    The food is terrible from anything given in LAUSD. The policies are probably one of the worst by far not to mention the few to none electives this school can offer. The school is very small and can not organize their schedule by making a pointless class that is not needed making students leave very late compared to most local middle schools. This school literally is one of the worst schools around having no field trips and forcing parents to do hours of community service. This school can improve by A LOT let alone it shares its campus needing BIG improvements in all departments especially in academics. I would recommend not applying to this school by all means necessary its poor struggles and pointless classes make this school unappealing while offering to give free outdated computers that do not work is not worth enrolling. Teacher quality and principal leadership is by far the worst seen ever . You will not regret NOT putting your child in this bad school.

    This is a really great school with really great and excellent teachers. Students are able to get all the knowledge they need to know. Really excellent school with advanced learning. I know because I used to attend this school as a student and I had really good grades(six A's and one B).No joke.I'm a proud puma!!!

    I regret enrolling my daughter at this school. The school has a lot of potential but I had a problem with their policies. It is a new school and I hope it improves in every way. The community deserves better. I forced to take my daughter out.
