About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Santa Monica Boulevard Community Charter School Reviews
New Admin, New Problems
The school's scores improved but that should not be a surprise. The school was not growing anymore. We knew our children could do better but at what cost. They took our parent center away and are going to make a lot of money. I pray that they use the money on our kids. They don't allow us into the school anymore. Really bad letting us know what is going on at school. At least old Santa Monica Boulevard Community Center School used to invite us to the board meetings. I am not a happy parent.
I personally love this school, friendly teachers and staff. Everyone shows a geniune care for the kids. I specially want to say Ms. Mendez is absolutely wonderful. She's an amazing teacher, my son has excelled in her class! He's in Kinder reading at a first grade level and math too!!
i hate this school. the teachers were so bad and did not even care about the kids. they made me believe that school was not for me. i hated it. they made my childhood years terrible. tham i went to woodland hills middle school and high school and i loved it. Graduated with honers and now in a 4 year college.
