I attended Crenshaw (Class of 1984). I, like Larry Elder, am proof positive your kid can get a quality education at Crenshaw. I am an executive at one of the largest health insurance provider in the nation. MV Woodland Hills, CA

Notifications of upcoming events don't go out often and I get surprised by my child telling me of something coming up. I don't always have ...  Read more

I thinks this is one of the worst schools in Los Angeles... the security of students in non-existent. The only thing on the students mind is clothing, shoes and BS. Academics is not a priority.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
