This charming neighborhood school, nestled within and surrounded by vibrant and growing communities, has won numerous awards from technology (LA App Challenge) to visual and performing arts (Bookmark, Art, Dance) & more. Focused on the whole child, the thoughtful curriculum includes TK/K-6 school-wide hands-on Science projects, Latin for all classes, technology in the classroom (PlanetBravo), STEAM Exhibition Nights, Play-Well LEGO, Chess Tutors and more. Stop by our school and you will see the children are delightful, happy and blossoming from the dedicated, caring, enthusiastic and happy teachers and staff, bolstered by passionate and committed parents and volunteers.

We love this little neighborhood gem. Every teacher my kids have had has been fantastic, extremely dedicated, and innovative. The new(ish) principal is MARVELOUS, and has really brought a new energy into the school and community. There are several unique programs that I haven't seen offered anywhere else (including Latin and ballroom dancing), and the school has really honed in on their STEAM focus. We love it. I can't believe this is an LAUSD public school. I highly recommend.
