I am in fifth grade at this school. It is a great school! It has a great chorus and lots of fun sports like the new Mar Vista soccer team. There is a great art program and lots of field trips for the students. And, the BIG BOO. The big boo is like a little carnival we have at are school. It has a haunted ...  Read more

Mar Vista Elementary is a fabulous school TK - 5th grade school. Teachers are engaged and want to be there. The Principal, Mrs. Choe, forges strong relationships with parents and students, inspires and models a can-do spirit for making Mar Vista the absolute best it can be, and is extremely accessible ...  Read more

My son had an amazing kindergarten experience at Mar Vista. The school offers a lot of extras that have been cut from many other LAUSD schools, such as weekly art classes, P.E., computer teacher, due to the parental fund raising done.

'Doesn't really matter much now I guess, but I attended Mar Vista Elementary in the early 1950's(!). I've never forgotten the wonderful, welcoming start the school gave me at the outset of my formal education. I have been on the faculty at Oregon State University since 1975. Thanks Mar Vista!!

I really love this school. We have done the tour and our son starts next year. We use the playground and have attended many events. I am sad to hear about the negative experiences. I think it can be a hard transition from preschool for any child but this is still a wonderful neighborhood school w/a lot ...  Read more

My daughter is now in 5th grade and she loves this school. We feel very fortunate and grateful for the education she receives: great teachers, music classes, Honor Chorus, and more. What makes this school so special, is the amazing parent involvement. Where else do you have a valet drop out in the morning? ...  Read more

My child did not have a good experience at this school, although may be some teachers are good. They did not care about the kids, especially in kindergarten. We are happy we left.
