    "The teachers are hard working and dedicated to their students. The principle (Dr. Bonelli, must have bought her degree online) is a joke and doesn't seem to care for much of anything. Why isn't the school board doing something about this woman ruining the school. Having been a teacher myself (30+years LAUSD) I can tell you the teachers here have no rights and is working for a tyrant. Again the teachers are great, I wish I could say the same for the administration."

    "Honestly this school is horrible. its too crowded . Theirs a lot of fights happening. Staff isn't doing their job. i been there for 2 years. and i feel that i'm not getting education at that school . i feel that they should make the school for 7th & 8th only since its too crowded. Moved schools . now currently going to a school in Arizona .. better education , less fights , Good staff , less students.."

    "I've had one child go to this school and another currently enrolled. It's a large school and crowded. That will be helped when the new middle school is built. Administration is caring and quick to respond to concerns in my experience. Too many parents go off at staff. Not a good example of respect for their kids. Safety is an issue because of large student population. Parents also ignore safety when dropping off their kids. I understand there will be a crossing guard this year. Good. It's needed."

    "Excellent teachers who care - my only concern is safety, as I do not believe the school has a handle on it."
