Read what parents are saying about Canfield Avenue Elementary School
We've just finished our first year of Kindergarten. We had hoped to get into a specific charter school in order to have as little to do with the LAUSD as possible, but got into this school through SAS. It's been a great experience. The school certainly seems more diverse than the numbers say: a lot of mixed race kids. We take that as a plus. The principal is beloved and for good reason. She's strong but kind and seems to be everywhere at once. I have been very involved with the school and have not heard a kid or a parent complain about any of the staff. I'm sure they're not perfect, but I've seen nothing but good. The parents who are able to be involved are, 100%. And no one is made to feel bad for not being able to volunteer. Of course there is a ton of fundraising, but it is certainly paying off with our computer lab and other great "extras" (which of course were not extras when I was a kid and our schools actually got enough money). Canfield pushes community like crazy and it's really working; it feels like we're all working together to keep it a great school. We're glad we didn't get into that charter school.

Wonderful schoool. Everyone kind of knows one another and supports each other. No school is perfect, but our kids feel welcomed and loved here, and we are so grateful for the community.

Great community school, teachers, the principal, and staff are nice, experienced, and responsive. We feel like a big family, and our kid loves the school.

The Principal, staff, teachers and parents at this school work as a team to better the children's experience and learning. We feel welcomed to participate in all activities and are often asked to give our input. Our concerns are also taken into consideration.
