    Principal Glendy Marin is ruining Selma. She is a terrible principal. She treats everyone like garbage. She has no people skills and treats parents like they do not matter. She is the reason that there is no parent involvement at this school. She thinks she is superior than everyone else.

    Selma does care about their students and their well being. The well being of their students is a big concern to Selma.

    My review was never posted! This school does not care about its students! No action was taken when children were being mentally abused by numerous teachers... They let these teachers continue working here even after they would continue doing the same actions! Like not allow children to use the restroom children only 6 yrs old..!

    Who are all these phantom parents and are they talking about the same school? These parent reviews are anonymous...very interesting.

    Selma is an excellent school! The principal teachers and teacher assistants at Selma care and work hard to make sure that every child is successful. They are very dedicated towards their students. I love this school and I am very thankful my daughter is at Selma.

    The best thing about the Selma School is the office staff they do everything to get what you need done.

    Students'safety is not a concern taken seriously by Selma school Principal and LA's Best staff on Selma's ground between 2 30 and 6 pm. Moreover discrimination being an on-going matter for concern leads me to start a transfer process for my child.

    This school seems to have a great teachers who take time with children.

    This school has been a bit of a disappointment! The principle focuses more on his teachers than his students. Me and my child have lost trust in the school. I think the school is average for learning but if you or your child dont speak spanish you may have trouble getting help with various situations. The office workers are the best most helpful they can be and they do there job very well.
