In 2010, the Los Angeles Unified School District spent $11,386 per student. In 2010 the district spent 58% on instruction, 38% on support services, and 4% on other services.
I did not like the set up of the school. I don't think the set up is a good learning environment with all the grades mixed together in one big warehouse looking room.
This school is run by two harpies that terrorize the students, teachers and parents. There is constant teacher turnover. Also, students constantly leave this school to transfer to another school. This school does great on the state mandated STAR test because they teach the students very similar items that will appear on the test. Parents are not allowed private conversations with teachers. An administrator always sits in with the teacher when meeting with a parent. The teacher looks as if they are terrified of saying the wrong thing in the presence of the administrator. This school is straight out of a Charles Dickens novel. If you write the school about a complaint, they never respond in writing. You must attend a meeting with the school to express any concerns. You will never get anything in writing. Parents are kept in the dark about board meetings.
