We are so happy and feel very lucky to be in the short community and really feel that changing schools has made all the difference for our child.

We are very happy to have our son at Short. He is participating at Mr. Schieneman's Scouts (former Boy Scouts) going camping, exploring LA and having good old fashion fun at Den's Meetings/ Mr. Schieneman is a 4th grade teacher who also does spelling bee competition.We enjoy the international day organized by Short- and potluck style get together with many international dishes (Ethiopian, Russian, Mexican, Finish, German, Spanish....American). Kids dress up in costumes, explore their heritage, bring family mementos which are later displayed at the library. I highly recommend our school to all community families. We could not have been happier!Principal Ms. Renolds

Transferred from a Charter School where my child languished. Decided to try Public school and met with the Principal and his teachers who spent a lot of time listening to our concerns and reassured us that Short was the place for him. They were so right. The teachers normalize a child's behavior rather then make the child or parent feel incompetent. They worked with us to critique our child's behavior and his educational experience. They asked for suggestions to assist in his growth, and loved that we cared so much about our child that we wanted to engage with the school. They spent at least 60 minutes on the end of the semester review ( only 15 minutes at the Charter) giving us good feedback. The campus is beautiful at Short and there are so many activities for the families its hard to keep track of them all. The Principal is so accessible, caring and honest. This is one wonderful public school with experienced teachers, kind parents and a community that is building around the goal of our children's growth. So happy our family found Short Elementary . My child loves going to school, says his teachers are not "mean" anymore, and is growing emotionally as well as educationally. What more can a family ask for?
