I grew up in a very academic/formal school. I loved it, and did very well. Open is the very opposite, kids don't have exams, grades, even fixed desks. The days go with students investigating and searching for information in different places. One other thing I love is the mixed race/mixed grades. My ...  Read more

Open Charter Magnet School is amazing. Being a former student of Open School who culminated in 2012, I would know. All administrators do their job with a great attitude. Open School definitely prepares you for middle school. The classes have mixed grades adjacent to the next so that all grades mingle. ...  Read more

The Open School encourages students to constantly assess how a lesson is helping them gain their own understanding. By questioning themselves and their strategies, students become "expert learners."

The school has increased in behavior problems due to lack of experience and or classroom management which have allowed bullying and isolation to be overlooked and under investigated. Poor staffing ...  Read more

My son has been at Open Magnet Charter since Kindergarten and has thrived in the environment. Every cluster (they combine grade adjacent grade levels) has been engaging and has stimulated his love of learning.

My son is kind of shy so this was the perfect opportunity for him to become familiar and ease some ...  Read more

Open Charter Magnet School is not a school you want your child to attend for a solid education. His teachers weren't organized and one of them gave us the feeling that she just didn't want to be there. My child had no spelling tests for almost two years. The administration here is a revolving door. ...  Read more

Per the Open School Directory about 30% students are from within non-busing area. Many friends live in Mar Vista, Mid-City, Village Green and Koreatown. I love the multi-age classrooms, allows kids to progress at their own rate & have a BFF who is 1-2 years younger/older. Love the library & the annual ...  Read more

I was not aware that most of children that attend come from the community of westchester as stated in previous reviews, maybe someone could post that percentage to clarify?

My son just hit the lottery and will be attending Open School as a Kindergartner in Fall 2013. From what I have heard from current parents this school is amazing and offers much more than academics. I am so excited and look forward to joining the community.

* 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.
