Santa Monica Boulevard Community Charter School Reviews

New Admin, New Problems

By a Parent on

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.
