    "If you only care about academics and you have a tough, confident kid.... this school has great teachers. The classrooms are noisy and the kids disrespectful. This is because discipline is terrible and the school doesn't do any thing about bullying. The counseling department is weak, especially counselor Joan Gianni, who does nothing about bullying since kids will be kids. The attitude is one of - get used to it... This is public middle school. I don't want my daughter in this environment!"

    "The IHP has gone down hill this past year. I no longer recommend it. The music program once the pride of the school has deteriorated. There have been teacher changes with a general increase in confusion & pressure Although the school presents itself as multicultural, the segregation on campus is profound and is disruptive to learning. My child spends as much time on homework as in school and no longer has time to spend time volunteering in the community or playing with friends after school. The projects assigned require enormous parental time. The money required for projects is more in line with what I'd expect in a private school where parents have high incomes."

    "We had our kids in the IHP and have pulled them out and left LAUSD, where we found them to be falling behind in English Language Arts and completely confused in mathematic. The teachers have begun confusing academic rigor in the home with teaching the gifted. There is almost a complete lack of creativity in writing, art, and all arenas. Common Core has confused the school, too. Zero period has made things more difficult. Almost all students require outside tutoring and can t complete assignments on their own. There is enormous pressure on the students to try and get into other IHP high schools and many of the kids in the program suffer from anxiety. If your child is creative and you believe education extends beyond test scores, this is not a healthy environment."

    "No stars at all! I chose this school for my eighth grader because I heard it was a nice school. It was an awful experience from the moment we stepped inside. In the office, everything was disorganized, staff was laughing and talking and ignoring the long line waiting to be assisted. The teachers had a bad attitude with my eighth grader. There were kids screaming inappropriate names at the teacher, yet the teacher chooses to ignore them. Classes were filled with more than 40 students! My eighth grader was kicked out of two classes because there was not enough space and kept going back and forth between the counselor's office because the counselor kept saying to go back to class. Since the first day, some Latino kid came up to my eighth grader and began to say inappropriate names. We talked to the counselor and security about it but they did nothing. Also, another kid offered my eighth grader drugs and there were plenty of kids passing them around. What a shame. Worst school EVER! My eighth grader did not even stay a week at this horrible school. I tried to talk to the principal but I was told he was never available. I don't recommend this school. Parents listen to your kids!"

    "I have a 6th grader in the Humanities Honors SLC. After hearing such great things about Walter Reed, I am sorely disappointed in the school and the SLC program. I think the program is designed around overloading students with projects and other homework that doesn't significantly enhance their learning. The amount of homework assigned assumes that kids pretty much only do homework after school and don't pursue any outside activities or interests. My message to Walter Reed is "you don't have to raise my child for me at home". Perhaps my sentiment is skewed to the upper end of the socio-economic ladder, but I think I have rights too. There definitely a drive toward parent participation for fund raising, but definitely not a willingness to take feedback on the curriculum. I understand that this is public school, and funding is a problem, but if you take the family sponsored fund-raising money, you should be willing to take feedback on the curriculum. Getting anything out of this school is just like any other public school (especially LAUSD); just a big machine. If I had this year to do over, I'd not choose Walter Reed. Run as far, and as fast as you can."
