Selma Avenue Elementary School Reviews
Personally I've only had fond memories of this school back in the years of 2002-2004. The people are great and the after school programs really help branched out the kid's talents. Most of the people you meet, even the staff are very friendly and kind.
The principal at this school loves her job. I think it very important as a parent to be involved in you child's educational development.
its is so bad at selma all students are great but the teacher are very hurtful to them sometimes they never have recess or lunch cause their teachers never go to selma
Selma Avenue Elementary is one of the worst elementary schools in Los Angeles. The staff at Selma is incompetent. The students there are very rude and disrespectful, this also reflects badly on the teachers at Selma. There's no behavior management at Selma. Students there do whatever they want. The students are the ones who run the school, it is sad but true. The campus is dirty, there roaches in the cafeteria, there are rat droppings in the rooms, there are a lot of dead plants on the campus, there's trash all over the playground. The charter school inside Selma are always leaving trash on the playground, but I have also seen many Selma students liter. There's no parent involvement at Selma.
