Kids World School/cornerstone Academy is located in Los Angeles, CA. It is a private school that serves 64 students in grades K-11. Kids World School/cornerstone Academy is coed (school has male and female students) and is nonsectarian in orientation. The school belongs to the Other school association(s).
In 2010, Kids World School/cornerstone Academy had 16 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The California average is 24 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
I have 2 daughters, 14 and 17 yrs old, and they both go to Kids World. Both are doing very well academically. My older daughter struggled with math but since going to this school she has improved and is catching up. I like the curriculum and find many of the classes they take to be something I myself would like (Forensics, Classical Religions, Climatology). Both are in their 2nd year at the school. The kids are very friendly here and they have made many good friends. They do not have a big ball field for PE which is important to some parents. PE is 1x a week but they have physical things they do on breaks, i.e. basketball, ping pong, handball etc. The friendly safe atmosphere, attention to solid academics and interesting classes including art (the art teacher is amazing!) won me over.
My son is 3 and he loves his teachers who work with the 3 & 4 year olds. I especially love how Nancy handles him, with dignity and care. She is seasoned and has been there for a long time (a friend told me Nancy was her 16 year old daughters teacher in pre-K) but she still has an energetic approach to teaching and you can tell she genuinely loves & respects the kids.
My son had grown more and more difficult while in daycare, and shortly after he turned 3 I tried out Kid's World. He almost immediately became more mature and noticeably happier after starting. The children all seem very happy and outgoing whenever I come at random times to pick him up. I also have noticed that the older kids are so nice and well mannered toward my son.
Because it is on Hyperion right in the middle of Silverlake, the campus does not have enough land for a sprawling field, but my experience with the pre-K teacher more than makes up for that. However it does have a fun and well kept playground and they seem to work out the schedule nicely with the other classes.
Really love how cozy and family-like it is here. My daughter started writing her name at 3 years old and is now 5 reading at a 1st grade level. The methods used to teach are really great and my daughter is thriving there. We also LOVE the kindergarten teacher. She is so amazing!! I think she's been there like 18 years or something.

I love this school! All the kids learn to be responsible and take care of other around them. I see tht they are really understanding what they are learning. I see them apply it later away from school. I really am glad I found this school! Thanks Kids World!
My Kid has done very well here. She is very happy about school and extremely interested in her studies. She tested as being ahead two full grades in reading! I could not be more happy with the quality of her education from Kid's World School.
Kids World/Cornerstone Academy is a great school. My child has thrived all the way to high school. She gets individual attention in a safe and drug-free environment and has become a dedicated, hard working student as well as an ethical individual who volunteers her time for others outside of school and knows the value of being a good person. It is really ideal all around.
