    "I agree with the last review. Although it is a decent school set in a lovely residential neighborhood, the school is definitely overrated. I have two children attending the school and they are content, but one of them is GATE and has been bored and there is no real GATE program for my child to thrive in. The other child is also very bright and was not challenged at all last year and spent the majority of the year bored. Their after school programs are mediocre and although they do have a school orchestra which children can enroll in for a hefty fee, without extra private lessons it isn't really worth it. Even with a new principal last year, I didn't see an improvement in the quality of the school with the exception of safety rules being enforced more regularly."

    "I agree with the previous review. This school is completely over rated. The teachers are totally average. They don't provide challenges for above average students. They do however put on a spectacular show for open house. NOTHING BUT A SHOW. My two kids love this school. My daughter who is in second grade is totally bored, but she's happy I guess. Upper grade boy is content. They just wish they could actually LEARN something new. Overall I'm just happy they are in a safe environment. This is supposedly as good as it gets...."

    "Overall, the school is over rated. The only reason Van Gogh thrives is because of the ongoing parental support, both at home and at school. The parents who run the PTO do a fantastic job; they are fair with all grade levels and extremely organized. The teachers are okay. They are not better than any other LAUSD teacher. There are a few teachers who provide a rigorous curriculum. The new principal seems approachable and genuine."

    "Van Gogh was our number one choice when scouting public schools for our son. Great extra-curricular programs round out an excellent staff and group of teachers. My son is thriving, and I can't talk more highly of this place. Excellent location, as well."
