la Crescenta Elementary School Reviews
The teachers are way too strict and have anger issues. I think the school is over rated. High test scores are due to the Korean students who live in school and after school programs. Some of the teachers are genuine and sincere. Most of them seem angry, overworked and ready for retirement. My kids told me that most of their teachers yell and punish their classes unfairly.
