    "I love this School. The teacher's here really care about you and your children. It is very multicultural and the office staff are very friendly and helpful. I have 2 children enrolled in the school and they both love it."

    "We were new to Short Ave. this year. Our daughter was a first grader and didn't know anyone at this school. The wonderful principal Mrs. Paulos took the time to sit with her on the first days when tears were falling and made her feel loved and a since of belonging. Her teacher Mrs.Trapnell is an amazing and fun teacher. We love the since of community here. Highly recommend this school."

    "Short Avenue is a great school in a great community. The only reason this is not already one of the schools that people are waiting in line for is the largely unsubstantiated testing scandal that invalidated the school's API scores for two years in a row. The school has recovered, though, has a great principal who has made many positive changes in her two years so far, and a small but very dedicated group of parent volunteers. This school is already among the best in LAUSD, and I predict it will become very hard to permit into within a year or two."

    "Just a few short years ago (no pun intended), parents in our neighborhood in Mar Vista had very scant options when it came to local elementary schools -- but Short has changed that. Due to an influx of committed parents joining forces with a core group of passionate and committed teachers and administrators, Short has become a safe space where children can learn and grow in a creative and supportive environment. It is what public school education is supposed to be."

    "In researching schools from charter to private, I learned about a quiet little gem, right in my own back yard. I sent my son to the outstanding SLRDP preschool here, but had not truly considered it further until the following year when I was performing my due diligence. The thing that struck me most about Short Avenue wasn t the inspired Reading Garden or the fabulous new library but the *strength and caliber of the teachers*. Every classroom I observed, I was delighted to find an experienced teacher worthy of entrusting my son s education to, a teacher who seemed to shine a little brighter. The other thing that stood out was the parents the degree of their involvement, commitment and dedication. In 2012-2013 we were graced with a new, passionate, caring and focused leader with a vision to guide our beloved little school back on track towards our distinguished school goal. My first grader is easily doing second grade math and reading on a third grade level. His teacher radiates exceptional qualities considered by some as a once-in-a-life-time teacher. How very blessed we are here at our charming neighborhood school."
