    "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."

    "Van Gogh is a hidden gem. From principal leadership to parental involvement, the school is top notch and I feel fortunate that my children are enjoying such a great elementary school experience."

    "Van Gogh is a great school with awesome parent that volunteer for every event and help in any way they can. The teachers are great they go out of their way to make our kids education their number 1 priority . Students are polite and thankful of the parents who are in the school yard and classrooms. I consider myself lucky to be part of Van Gogh family."

    "I am fortunate that this is my home school, and moved into the neighborhood over 10 years ago before kids were even considered. Van Gogh is a hidden gem in the North Valley. Their API scores are on par with the "Magnet school down the street." considering we have English Language Learners and others factored in. Love the PTO - they welcome everyone with open arms, and the parental involvement is phenomenal. The new principal is also very focused on providing a safe, nurturing environment for our kids (she had big shoes to fill after Principal Gundersen retired at the end of the 2012-13 academic year). As for "highly gifted kids" - my daughter was also identified as "highly gifted" and IS being challenged in the classroom. At this age, yes, being challenged is important, but so is their socialization and learning to work/share/get along with others. I refuse to steal her childhood for the sake of academics. Sometimes we forget to let our kids be kids, and this school provides a nice balance of academics and socialization. I also love that there is an on-site YMCA program since I am a working parent, and would rather have supervised care afterschool vs. the YS."

    "My two children came from a private preschool in the Valley. I honestly did not think they would receive a well-rounded and balanced education through LAUSD. I could not be happier with Van Gogh Charter!! The Principal, teachers and staff all work so hard and really create an enriching environment. We have a wonderful Art, Music and Physical Education program led by caring and professional staff. Thank you for paving the way for their future."
