Brentwood Science Elementary School Reviews

I love the School great teachers, i have 1 Kindergarden &1- 2nd.. grader, they like the school and they learn a lot. They are organize and I would say that the principal is always around. She talks to parents, kids & she is not the don't touch me kind of principal she hugs the kids she talks to them as well. All the staff are very helpful and they are always thinking ways to motivate kids to learn and make learning fun but @ the same time serious about what they do, "TEACH"  The bus is another story but i guess it depends on your driver, i had a problem: an older kid was bothering my son, we tolled driver he spoke to the kid,nothing happened i tolled supervisor nothing happened, so i had to talk to the parent, that didn't know his son wasn't as good as he thought. This is not a private school or private transportation so i appreciate  that my kids can have a good education and also ride to to school, nothing is prefect so yes I WOULD RECOMMEND "Brentwood

Brentwood might be a good school... But my son and I had a bad experience. The bus ride - he always had problems finding where to seat or where the other students allowed him to seat. My son was bullied, pushed and hit (burses and scars). The school did not do anything about it. I had to contact other official and school's LAPD. I got tired of this and other situations we went through within ONE month and transferred him out. We all have choices!
