Thrilled. Low test scores are most likely because of low attendance across the grades. My child has consistently above average scores because she has great attendance.Teacher to student ratio is frequently 1:10 and sometimes lower.

I am proud to be Principal of Vine Street Elementary School, wherein I was selected to lead after my good friend and colleague, Mr. Chris Stehr, retired this past June, 2015. Our school is poised and ready for steady academic growth, increased numbers of community partnerships, and high-volume parent engagement and empowerment. To our prospective parents and families: WE ARE YOUR neighborhood public school. Come visit us and take a tour...you'll end up enrolling your child. In addition to improving our instructional program to meet the unique learning needs of all of our students, our dedicated teachers and staff are amazing and caring adults and leaders. In addition to strengthening our Instructional core, I am proud of our school's efforts to build and implement an innovative, daily morning physical fitness, community-building, and academic readiness program, our "Vine Victory Laps!" program, a revamped Student-of-the-Month, Perfect Attendance, and Laps Trophies Awards Assembly evolution, new investments in textbooks to support our Music and Orchestra program and students, investments, improvements, and grant-writing to support our fully-functioning Computer Lab, iPad Lab, and Library media center, and a tripling of our investment in during-school and after-school academic intervention tutoring programs to support identified students in need of targeted academic support. We continue to build our parent engagement, volunteer opportunities, and education, too, through our classroom visits, schoolwide programs, Parent Center Workshops, and other events and activities. Join Us! Community investment and partnerships, too, will continue to increase. I encourage you to hang a banner on our fence to advertise your business/organization and our partnership! We are proud to announce that our new "DANCING CLASSROOMS of LOS ANGELES!" Ballroom Dancing Program for all of our 5th Grade Students, is well underway and is teaching our students wonderful skills and memories through social dance, cooperation, friendly competition, and artistic expression! We are on our way. Again, WE ARE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL! WE LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING YOUR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES, AND/OR PARTNERING WITH YOU AS WE CONTINUE TO BUILD OUR SCHOOL INTO A MODEL OF ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE and CITIZENSHIP. Respectful Regards,KURT S. LOWRY, ED.D., PRINCIPAL

Our two children have attended pre-k, kindergarten and first grade at Vine Street. As Caucasians we wondered if being the 1% would present any problems for us or our children. But the staff and other parents made us feel right at home and the principal Mr. Stehr is the best you could hope for. Being in the middle of Hollywood this school offers a wonderful refuge for the children and is a beacon of light for the community. Go waste your money on private school if you want, but you don't need to. This is a public school we feel proud to call Our school.

Both of my kids attend this school. We love the warm and inviting staff/teachers. Mr.Stahr has been the best principal. He truly is good at his job and the kids love him. I would recommend this school to anyone!

My 2 kids have been attending Vine ES for 1 yr now and they have improved so much in every category compare to when they were attending Logan ES. The teachers at Vine are so helpful and somehow they are doing a grea job because I am amased on how much my daughters have learned. The only little problem I have is with LA's Best they need to be more organized for when parents pick up their children. It will be very helpfull if they keep all the sign in logs at the entrance of the building and have 2 people there one having the parents sign and the other calling through the walkie talkie to send the student down instead of having to go to different classes to find my daughters. Other than this Vine ES is the best school that my children have attended. Keep up the good work teachers and staff. I appreciate everyone including staff from LA's best because they are so nice and polite.
