    "My child has attended Brentwood Science Magnet for four years. Overall, he has had a positive experience. He loves the science labs and has had a very dedicated teacher each year. Parents hear about "mainstream" education, but after having my child in private pre-school through Kindergarten, I feel each teacher he has had at Brentwood Science Magnet has been extremely dedicated and detail oriented. LAUSD budget cuts have certainly put stress on all schools at an academic and operational level. Despite these challenges, Brentwood Science Magnet continues to have a great community of students, staff, and parents who want to keep the school moving forward with great academic progress. I hope that any parent with concerns about this school will attend any one of the many monthly meetings about the school's operations, enrichment and GATE programs. With more parent involvement, this school will only continue to excel."

    "My daughter started BSM in the 3rd grade and she is now in the 5th grade, ready to transition to Middle School. We are beyond impressed with how much our daughter flourished while at BSM. The science curriculum is wonderful. We feel like she has had a well rounded education and she has had excellent teachers for each grade. The school size is much larger then the school we were at prior...this is not a bad thing. She has been in advanced Math and English rotations so that she is challenged academically and she has the greatest amount of respect for all of her teachers. Her CST test scores jumped dramatically year over year (especially in math) and 5th grade afforded a chance to go to Astro Camp. This was a wonderful weekend camp excursion in the San Jacinto mountains. Do not pass on this opportunity, it is the trip of a lifetime for kids this age. Our daughter entered BSM a shy violet. After three years, she is outgoing, confident and willing to challenge herself even when she is scared. This is something I would have never expected but it speaks volumes of how much of a positive impact this school has had. I cannot wait to send my son to BSM!"

    "I love the school and the Principal works hard to improve the teaching learning process. My daughter is in first grade and the first teacher she had was a little bit irrisponisble and the principal changed the class for my daughter per our request and the teacher she has now is great and I am really satisfied with my first year experience in Brentwood Science school. Students also introduced many science labs which is wonderful."

    "We are in our last year at BSM. The first two years were wonderful under a fantastic principal and a great PTA. There have been two new principals since then and we have seen more rules enforced and less creative,educational activities. This school does NOT allow children to play before school begins in the morning. They are forced to stand in line, waiting patiently for school to begin. Even the younger children are made to do this. Not age appropriate at all. Out of five teachers, we have been okay with three, and LOVED one (who was let go due to budget cuts sadly). This school use to be wonderful. Now not so much."

    "I wrote the truth once and it was rejected. Bad reviews are not accepted. There are better options then BSM."
