I entered this school as my choice for 2 years before she got in. Even though she came from a school that is WELL KNOWN for academics and that had a state API score of 991(the highest in the state) I still wanted her here in an atmosphere of FUN and ACTIVE learning. However, now my daughter s current ...  Read more

The best thing going for Open is its diverse community (love it!) and parent support. Other than that I don t find the school to be all that special. Yes, we are fortunate to have gotten in as Open is a huge step up from our home school. In regards to "middle finger's post" My child was in green cluster ...  Read more

Open School is an absolute gem in the landscape of LAUSD! As a parent of 11 years at Open I feel compelled to rebut some of these negative reviews. We had all 3 of our kids at Open school and I cannot begin to say how grateful I am that we were lucky enough to be at such an amazing learning environment. ...  Read more

Overall, this is a school that cares about student education and offers something that we do not get at other schools, which is the ability for our kids to learn in a constructivist environment. I agree that no school is perfect, nor is Open, but given this people should not be chastised for giving their ...  Read more

We have loved our experience at Open School. And as my daughter prepares to move on to LACES in the Fall, we are so grateful for the education she received during the 5 years she attended this gem of a school. Though the class sizes are large due to the Team Teaching model the school employs, my child ...  Read more

How can I possibly tell you what the Open School has meant to my family for the last nine years . I could easily start off by writing about my oldest son who learned that he was a writer under the guidance of his teachers who encouraged him to "take a seed idea and to devolope it into a watermelon ...  Read more

My daughter attended another public school for kindergarten but has been in Open for two years. There is an incredible difference between her old school and Open Charter. Parent involvement and parent teacher communication is so much better at Open. I have seen first hand the difference between Open ...  Read more

Open School is one of the most creative, invigorating, caring educational environments I've ever been exposed to, both during my seven years as a parent there, and during my own time as a student anywhere. The two principals who've run Open School during our time there have been gifted leaders who work ...  Read more

Open School is all about the kids. Period. Devoted teachers. My boys are now 17 and 15 and they always ask to go back and visit their teachers. When I was at Open school I was president of the Friends organization and on the governing board my entire 8 years there. I cite the system of collaborative ...  Read more

Our daughters had the privilege of attending Open School and it not only was an outstanding experience but one that you dream of for your children. As a family we attended Open for a total of even years. We were a family that was very involved and active throughout our years there serving on committees, ...  Read more
