    "Its like the Emperors new clothes. We heard so many great things, yet the progams that we thought we would get ,such as band,drama and Spanish are just not good have been cut. Parents are expected to fund raise for teachers that they have little say about hiring. The Principal hires her friends and there is no review of these classes. Parents cant help with any of these things, they are seen as an ATM for the schools staff. The teaching in the class room is great, bit really no different from any LAUSd school at this point. Other than that there are laptops..but,wait, the teachers dont check them out to teach with. Dont think there is something extra. There just isnt. The only extra is an extra heap of homework designed to keep parents in line with task after task and an extra helping of guilt on the kids if one chooses to let a kid just play after school. Additionally with the long bus ride and lawless,but expensive afterschool program, trying to find after school classes to balance a childs interests becomes very hard. The parents are so spread out that no one knows each other. The principal makes it impossible for parents to get to know each other."

    "So far, so good! Our family feels very fortunate to have won the lottery and gotten into this very special school. The teachers and staff are filled with passion and are invested in the students. The grounds are out of this world! Spanish, PE, drama, art, computers, music are a part of the weekly curriculum. Like all public schools there is a gap between what is state funded and what is community funded. The fundraising element seems wholly balanced for realities of budgets issues. The fact that every class has its own dedicated TA is almost unheard of in this day and age. As far as feeling a sense of community, you get what you give. When you invest your time and reach out you are met with like mined, driven teachers, staff and parents."

    "This is our first year at Community and what a FABULOUS school it is. There is so much parental involvement, dedicated teachers/principal, full day teacher aides in every class, new iPads for the computer room for all kids to use, PE, Art and Music teacher and a Spanish teacher. Plus a CATCH program to identify and help any child falling behind. Pam is a wonderful prinicpal who is accessible, knows all kids and works hard to make this school great. The families are amazing and work hard by volunteering and organizing fundraisers to raise money to have all the fabulous programs and aids which make this school great. We are so lucky to have been accepted. I am already rolling up my sleeves to get involved and help out in class and at school. I'm doing my part and making friends along the way. The older parents at the school have greeted my family warmly and we are excited to be here."

    "Community Magnet is such a special school. My husband and I honestly feel like it is a public school that is run like any of the great private schools in Los Angeles. The students get tons of enrichment classes, the Principal and staff are so devoted, the test scores as good as they come and the campus is a probably one of the most beautiful in the city. We feel so lucky to have gotten our 2 children in!"
