    "Administration turns a blind eye to increasing influx of kids whose parents want them to escape from LA Unified. No serious checking on where these kids really live. Paying sky high taxes to fund LA kids is something even liberal parents take issue with."

    "What it is: A HUGE public school with caring, competent educators and a plethora opportunity. The best instrumental music in the state, along with fierce athletics and a massive club culture makes this school unique- one of the most egalitarian schools in the state with a total absence of a singular "popular crowd" or a jock culture. What its NOT: A small private school where everyone know everyone, and they gather round the fire to sing kumbaya on weekends and everyone can be part of every activity. This is a school that demands competence and resolve from people in what they do. This means that not everyone gets to be an athlete, even on the freshman or junior varsity level. Not everyone gets to play in the top 3 bands, or sing in the top choirs, or play in the top orchestras. Competency is a mandate, and people who don't cut it get weeded out. This goes for academics as well, people don't usually peruse AP's across academic disciplines. This is because these classes hold students to the highest standards: a student in AP English generally will not also take AP Bio. This is not a school for the type of people who will "fall through the cracks." It is world class education."

    "This school is AWFUL and so is Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District. Their biggest problems are racism, discrimination against the disabled and the poor attitude of District and school site staff. You also need to beware of Buffy-the-wallet-slayer! They are always begging for money. If they have any of your information, it will definitely be used to beg, beg, beg you for money. When it comes to something that you really need to know, no one will be able to find your information. Do yourself and your kid a favor, skip this school and go to New Roads or better yet, homeschool your kid!"

    "Between Oct 3rd and Oct 25th, 2010 there were TWENTY THREE reviews of this school - all of them extremely favorable. The busiest days for reviews were Oct 19th with SEVEN reviews, and Oct 18th with ELEVEN reviews - in a row... all glowing! I haven't seen anything like this in my school searches before. Is BALLOT-STUFFING the reviews common???"
