    "Hancock Park is a great school! All top rated LAUSD schools ask for money each year because the district doesn't fund much. The person below that said something about the parents that contribute to the "booster club" doesn't realize that parents are contributing to the SCHOOL and that all kids benefit. There is no "club" that secretly spends money. Everything is transparent and all money donated to the parent organization is used that year to pay for the programs, supplies, security, education and more, that ALL of the students get. If every parent got involved rather than complained, we could do great things. Every parent is important and part of what makes this such a great school. Everyone is busy and has reasons they can't volunteer and get involved, but I challenge you to find a tiny bit of time to get involved. Next time, rather than assume and place blame, get involved and make a positive difference. There might be a lot you don't know which would explain why things happen the way that they do. Bring your ideas and opinions to meetings and get involved. Hancock Park School has great teachers, a great principal, great staff, great students and great parents. Great school!"

    "We love this school. I am so sorry that a parent who had hard time in HPS.. school has to keep some rules for kids. There are over 100 kids same time in during recess. A parent actually wasnt happy about how their kid got broken arms or legs... they are who made no running during the recess. HPS knows how to keep kids get busy..None of public school in L.A. cant provide then HPS. Teachers are there for you. Gave us a good guide line for my son. I am respect the teachers and staff they know more then I know about my son."

    "We have had great experience in both Kindergarten and grade I. I am impressed by the capabilities and involvement of the teachers. The school focuses on academic achievements. However, extracurriculars like arts, dance, theater, computer, etc are also given attention. There is a good emphasis on sports; and kids love coach K and his team. The food served in the cafeteria is healthy. My son loves his school."

    "I really like the school and the principal and am sorry the last reviewer felt otherwise. My son I were both accorded a great deal of respect and attention, and he learned so much at Hancock Park. I enjoyed the feeling of parent involvement and contribution at every level. My son got into the Wonderland Magnet this year, which is a Blue Ribbon (10 out of 10 as well) but I honestly don't think Hancock Park has less to offer -- in some respects since it is our neighborhood school it has more, and we still attend the homework club and after school programs there with ARC, Coach Oscar and Coach K. There is a real feeling of community and we actually rather miss that. The diversity is amazing and the teachers are wonderful. My younger son will be going to Hancock Park soon and we look forward to it."

    "The principal has been a nightmare for us. Totally inflexible and unwilling to do what is best for the kids. Her only concern is keeping the test scores up. She will see to the needs of families who contribute to the booster club first. The school is very by-the-book, regimented, without much in the way of adapting to a child's strengths. There are a few really good teachers ... but many are just adequate. The extremely high percentage of Korean families tend to be very insular. Our non-Korean kids had a hard time making friends or arranging play dates with them. Kids are not allowed to run on playground during recess! Seriously? After-school program is pathetic."
