Pacoima Charter Elementary School Reviews

Best by Far!

By a Parent on

My children have been in Pacoima Charter Elementary school since 2012. It is by far, the best school in location compared to similar schools. Not only are staff very educated, but the have it what it takes to be a genuine educator; they Care. My children are highly motivated to attend school and perform academically on a proficient level. I highly recommend this elementary school to all parents who who like their children to be successful. Staff members are so dedicated to the children, they often volunteer much of their time beyond working hours to create workshops and ensure our children's needs are met entirely. This school strives vigorously to build a strong foundation for the rest of their lives. THUMBS UP!!!

This school is a joke and should not exist! Why keep funding a school with low test ratings and horrible teachers that don't care!

Pacoima Charter School has made a grand effort in meeting the needs of our children. The staff and teachers are all part of the success that has taken PCS away from being a Program Improvement school. My children have great memories of that school. The teachers really care and try their hardest to meet the needs of the students.
