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!!!
I think this is a great school.
This is one of the best schools in the Pacoima area. All the teachers are well prepare and deliver their lessons in a very professional way. Pacoima Charter elementary School has several programs that help students to achieve high scores in all academic areas. Students are separated by their reading level and receive their instruction accordingly to their abilities. They also have differentiated instruction for mathematics, writing, and eld levels. Pacoima Charter Elementary has an extended learning program for the students who need extra support in any academic subject. Pacoima Charter Elementary really cares and make a difference in their students education.
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.
