Walgrove Avenue Elementary School Reviews

Pleasantly Surprised

By , a Parent on

Coming from a Catholic School, I was worried about putting my kids into a public school after hearing about all the LAUSD cut backs. I have to say, Walgrove Avenue Elementary school was a pleasant surprise! The school and the teachers do all they can to work with your child (IEP's, constant updates) and have an open door policy. My children are happy and I wish I would of made this change long ago. The Friends of Walgrove (parent booster club) have fundraisers thoughout the year and you can see where the money is going. This isn't your normal LAUSD run school. Its teachers AND parents are involved in making this school function at its best.

My mom was nervous about putting me into Walgrove. I went to this school about 5-6 years ago and i can't believe how happy I was at that school. I was glad that my mother had signed me up at that school because the teachers were amazing!

I used to go to this school when I was in second grade through fourth grade, but then I moved, but I would have finished elementary there. Walgrove Avenue Elementary is an amazing school. The teachers are really cool and you really get along with them. They help you in any way they can. There is no peer pressure. I hope i could go back and visit again. It's the best school that i ever went to.

My son and the other kids that have attended both kindergarden and first grade at Walgrove Avenue Elementary are very happy and productive. The progress of their learning skills is evident on a daily basis. The teachers are easily on par with the Santa Monica district, and a lot better than the other local schools as far as I've experienced.

Anyone who's writing a negative anonymous one-liner probably doesn't have much schooling themselves.

I thought that Walgrove Elementary was one of the worst schools my child has every experienced.
