I am currently a student at New west. Every morning I wake up dreading to have to go to school. I hate this school with a passion. Most of the teachers shouldn't be near a classroom ever in their life. I have learned nothing in the last year and a half I was there. I am in the only 2 honors classes ...  Read more

Overhyped. My child was not engaged, not focused and clearly was looking over her shoulder to see what local public schools offered. Their API slid nearly 30 points but that is because high school is such a different game where diversity of experiences and students are important. Go to nearby magnets ...  Read more

New West had been fantastic for my child. We moved him from a stuffy private school and have never looked back. He settled in immediately and has become so interested in school again. They have a young faculty who are very enthusiastic, they seem to make the whole learning experience refreshing. I know ...  Read more

Response to post from 8/8/13 Yes, I do think that moving forward things will improve, but time will tell. I do think moving campuses sapped administration's energy.

This school could be so much more. There are some great teachers and staff, but there are a lot of issues with this school. It feels like the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. Everyone is out of the loop. Students, parents, teachers, and most importantly the administration don't ...  Read more

My school is horrible. I wish I could tell you but I can't because I don't know how to. I have learned absolutely nothing in this past year at NW. The teachers give no respect to any of the students. and when you turn in homework...actually you don't even need to turn it in! they don't even check it. ...  Read more

New West is an outstanding school. Congratulations to all the students and staff for being named a California Distinguished school again! Thank you for creating a true gem in public education in LA!!!

In my opinion I think that it is not such a privilege to go to new west charter. There is not a field, all we have is a small parking lot. I feel that is is just not rite. I am really disappointed this year that we had to go threw two language arts teachers and we are behind greatly in language arts. ...  Read more

Overrated by hype. The principle is rigid and uncaring. There is no yard. Not accommodating. The bus stop is full of high end cars yet they claim to reach for underprivileged kids.

New West Charter School
State Board Of Education Charter
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
