    "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."

    "The IHP program is amazing! My son is a 7th grader in the IHP program and is no longer bored at school. He finds himself constantly learning and being challenged to work hard in this program which excites him. He is very happy at Reed and I think his teachers are both remarkable and inspiring. He has also met nice friends outside the IHP as well. I am only sorry that our music director Mr. McDonough is no longer teaching here. He was another one of those demanding and inspiring teachers."

    "I am a student in the 6th grade humanities academy, and if your looking for a great school you are in the right place. I have enjoyed my year with helpful teachers and kind students. Middle school can be hard at first but with the teachers helping you, the year for most kids is wonderful. Walter Reed is one of the best schools in not only Los Angeles, but the best in California. Having your kids experience this fantastic school will be fun, safe, and unforgettable. At least I know it will be for me."

    "I am a sixth grader in the Humanities Honors Academy. Reed MS is a wonderful school. They have a great music department. I think of all the academies, Humanities is the best. This academy has a lot of fun projects and tons of field trips. And it is very easy to make friends at this academy since everyone is so friendly. Also, the teachers are wonderful. They are nice, respectful, and very smart. They always help you if you are in need. It is true that there is a lot of cussing in this school, but all you have to do is just ignore it. Walter Reed MS is the best!"
