Ms. Crawford-Li, who has taught Pre-K at Eagle Rock for 2013-2014 school year, is an amazing teacher who goes the extra mile! She methodically organizes a high-level instructional program and provides engaging activities, performances and field trips.. She encourages social/emotional development for all style learners and her students are thoroughly engaged while having fun and calmly following her direction. She includes the parents in routine volunteerism and corresponds daily with a cute folder & bag (the home work is meaningful and not burdensome!) She is an A+ teacher and her T.A.. compliments the program.

Eagle Rock Elementary is a good school. My daughter had a wonderful third grade teacher last year who was responsive to her learning problems and was very supportive, my son had a good 1st. grade teacher who was strict yet open minded. The after school YDP program is a good program that introduces the kids to art and music.

While there are some gifted teachers in the Gifted Magnet, there are incompetents and these bad ones are so stunningly awful that it can make you forget how good the good ones are. If you get into the program, don't think your child is going to have great opportunities.They talk a great game, but are still teaching to the test here. STAR testing is the holy gril: Magnet kids are expected to score ber high to make up for the low scores in the regular school so the administrators can look good and get promoted to some cush job on Beaudry Ave. Gifted education, which used to include lots of enrichment, is now More Math, More Homework, More Rote Learning and Less Creative Thinking. Socially, the gifted kids are marginalized as behavior problems or "weird," both by their non-gifted peers and by some of the teachers and administrators. These kids are then labeled, and dismissed, by the school. The administrators here do not seem to understand or care that the gifted children think and behave differently, and are largely intolerant toward them. The playground is utter chaos with lots agressive/violent play and bullying where no adult is present to intervene. Grade?: Fail

My daughter entered the magnet program in the fourth grade, the experience was wonderful. The fourth grade magnet teacher sincerely cares about each and every student as if they were her own. My daughter felt welcomed by the teacher even entering the program later than the rest of the students. I left my child at school each day knowing she was in good hands and learning. I can't say enough good things about the fourth grade magnet program. It was a great year and I still can go to this teacher for help, she goes above and beyond.

Eagle Elementary needs to work on the massive bullying problem. They have no supervision in the yard and those bathrooms are beyond disgusting. Teachers need to be more sympathetic and not target students they do not like. I notice that the teachers there play favoritism and do not believe that certain students are capable of the worse!!!!! Too many students for just one principal; my children will not be attending next year. Can you say private school.

This school has been wonderful and exceeded my expectations despite the reputation of largely overcrowded LAUSD schools. The principal really does care about the welfare and education of each student. He also started a valet program and occassionally you will see him out there directing students and families to safety. There are great teachers in the Gifted program that set high expectations and do their best to enrich their student's lives. My daughter is in the GATE program and it is definitely a more vigorous workload than a regular classroom, but she is learning skills that I believe will set her apart from the average student. Parents have the option to meet on a monthly basis with all the Gifted teachers to discuss progress. There is an orchestra at this school that is voluntary. This school offers an afterschool program for free provided by the county and any student can apply. The crew is run by young college age kids so most of the activities are social and homework time within your peer groups. There are music and art programs occassionally. Overall-ERE is a great school and my daughter is in a classroom with great kids.

We had high hopes for this school. My son got into the gifted magnet last year and we were so happy. This magnet begins in 3rd grade and the 3rd grade teacher is excellent. She is able to teach all the subject, plus add many enrichment activities. The 4th grade teacher was as awful as the 3rd great teacher was great. The poor woman, who seems to suffer from an anxiety disorder (comes to school with unbrushed hair, clothes that look like she slept in them) can't control her students, so they talk and fuss all day. She yells at them and then gives up and sends the classwork home as homework. So this meant that I had to basically homeschool my child every night, at the end of the day when we were both tired. I tried talking with the principal, but got the feeling he was overwhelmed and not interested. There's supposed to be a coordinator for the program, but I never met her and the other parents say she is useless. I've heard good things about the 5th grade teacher, so i'm hoping for a better year this fall. Be careful with LAUSD magnets. They are only as good as the teachers working there.

Eagle Rock Elementary is a great school. Both of my sons (pre-k, 1st grade) love the school and their teachers. There is a strong sense of community with amazing parents.

My child loves the highly gifted magnet. It seems like there were more activities like the class musical AND more homework in the third and fourth grade class than in fifth grade. The lady who teaches third and fourth grades is excellent. She cares very much and made good projects. I thought fifth grade would be harder to prepare for middle school but I think there's less work. Sometimes I don't understand my child's homework journal. All year it seems like homework gets added or changed or moved. Also, in my opinion there is no schedule to the class. I asked "what did you do in math today" and my child says there was no math but they played hockey. The man who teaches the class seems much more relaxed. Still it is an excellent program with art and science and music. Also, the teacher reads good books in class. I wish Eagle Rock high school had highly gifted classes.

A Blue Ribbon school with a diverse socio- economic population with wonderful a motivated and innovative teaching staff. The school has an amazing Special Education program as well as GATE and two Gifted and High Achieving Magnet schools. There is a garden, Arts partnerships with local orgs and a great PTA and school Foundation. It has a big heart for and high expectations for a Title 1 school

The LAUSD website (and the Parent Handbook that was sent home with my child) outlines the district's anti-bullying policy. Both sources also provide information regarding the district's guidelines for disciplinary actions against students that violate district rules. Unfortunately, ERE does not implement the (zero-tolerance) anti-bullying policy. ERE students who break school rules are not adequately disciplined. My child has been harassed by the same student for 2 years now. I have made several reports but my concerns are overlooked. It seems ERE's main focus is Blue Ribbon status and above average test scores. I think the safety and emotional well-being of the students is not focused on enough. In speaking with other parents, their children have also been bit, kicked, spit on, verbally harassed, or worse and little or nothing is being done in the way of discipline. There are serious behavioral problems that are not being addressed. It's alarming!
