    "We love this school. It's very small, and the teachers are wonderful and involved. Our daughter has learned so much in Mrs. Hohman's class, and we could not happier. We considered other schools, and thought about applying to WISH (among others). In the end, we chose Short and I am so happy we did. It's a tiny gem."

    "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."
