My child has attended Third Street since TK. We are now going on 3rd Grade and we have had an awesome experience so far. In reaction to some of the negative comments on fundraising and parent groups: The school is certainly not perfect, and it is not a Title 1 school so we have to raise funds from the community for teacher aides, PE, field trips, art and tech programs, etc. I'm thankful to all the parent volunteers who devote a lot of time, energy and effort into making sure our kids get these programs. It may seem like there is a small group of parent "influencers" (the few that are always visible in campus). There's a lot of work to be done around the school and not enough staff and volunteers. I know a few of them and I can confidently say they are always advocating for what's best for ALL the families at school, regardless of their ability to contribute or volunteer.
We absolutely love this true neighborhood school! Incredibly supportive families, polite and respectful students, first-class teachers and progressive administration. We couldn't be happier!
Great school, great loving and caring teachers and staff.
Third street is a good school in LAUSD. It's not GREAT, but good. Not too impressed with the PTA/FOT clique and their lack of welcoming any new ideas. Turned off by the Dual Language Korean program, which seems pretty counter productive when it's majority native Korean speakers. Many parents want their kids in these classes because of "better" teachers and that's sad. Haven't had an issue with teachers, but do wish that LAUSD would let this school think outside of the box and challenge the children more or give them a more creative curriculum. Teaching to the test is such a waste of time! I feel that staff (yard teachers, office staff) could use a bit of sensitivity training when dealing with the kids. I know it's frustrating sometimes, but that's the job. If you don't like dealing with children and their parents, find another school. I'd also like to see Third street adopt an alternative after school program. So many bad experiences here, many complaints from other parents. Apparently the person running it needs a job (or someone in the district owes her a favor) and couldn't care less about the quality of programs being offered. Very frustrating. Please look into STAR after school programs for our kids!New principal is here as well, so hopefully changes are coming.
