    "Larchmont is a gem of a school system and it's being grown fresh right before our eyes. It's a 10-year-old system, which merged and grew out to high school in the last couple of years. I've seen the whole curriculum K through 12 and it's amazing, I'm especially interested since I am getting my Masters of Education from UCLA. As the parent of a 3rd-Grader, I am in a sweet spot. This school is on the cutting edge of scientific research about what helps all kids learn and grow. No one is panicking about Common Core because, since inception, they've been practicing top-notch educational practices like learning math by having multiple opportunities to connect to the same math concepts and learning reading via non-fiction texts and fun projects. For reading, every child is in a small pull-out group with kids over a two-grade spread who are at their level. This is essential to have kids feel like successful readers. Different learning styles are supported in every classroom. I couldn't be happier with the academics. I have been shadowing at the middle school and the teachers are top notch. The high school is even on a block schedule. I know these kids will be ready for college!"

    "They are having a new executive almost every other year --as the school grows into a bigger school from K to 12, there have been a lot of growing pains. Communications have not been great last year and the sense of community doesn't seem as strong as it used to be. A lot of Hollywood type parents(at least on Fairfax and Selma) --it's not as diverse as they say when it comes to the parental body. Some wonderful teachers already took off and many others seem overwhelmed. The school is OK so far...not sure what the future holds."

    "Just left Larchmont this past yr, a tough decision b/c our child attended LCS k-5 & we miss the kids&parents.There're some great aspects of LCS, most important being its 12 grades,but the problems we saw at the start, including poorly trained teachers, cramped inadequate facilities [no lib, gym, computer lab], and a "teach to the middle level of academics continued & in fact worsened by the time we went to Selma Campus for 4th & 5th.Other concerns included erratic/shaming discipline, inappropriate use of parents in some teaching spots& a top down leadership fail so our&other parents requests for change were resented/ignored.We switched at 6th b/c it is the most typical time to matriculate for middle school.Our concerns with LCS were also informed by having an older child who did k-12 in LAUSD & not seeing "LCS-type issues" during that time.So, we're more savvy consumers, if you will, which I don't think is true of many of the gushing reviewers here.I guess my best observation is that the earlier grades were fine, but if you want your child to have an excellent educ, LCS is not your best option for later grades.This is born out by the many spots now available at LCS for 6-11"

    "We knew we won the lottery financially when our daughter got accepted to this school. We heard the school was amazing, but had no idea how amazing it really is. From the ridiculously dedicated teachers, active parents to really competent administration (this is important), we keep pinching ourselves. We also love how diverse the school is - not just racially but socio-economically as well. Living in LA, it's important to keep your kids grounded and this school does that. No frilly bells and whistles - just a great education. The best part? Our daughter loves it too! She used to cry every morning going to school and now she can't wait to go every morning. It's been a real game changer for us."
