Outstanding in all areas. A parent could not ask for a better place for their child to learn.
I love this school. My son started there in kinder and now he is a 5th grader. We had such a great experience with the principle and the teachers. This school will be missed.
We are going on our third year at White Point and we could not be happier with our experience. I have spent a lot of time on campus volunteering in classrooms and special events and have had an up close look at typical school days. I have to say I am very impressed! The teachers at this school are exceptional and genuinely happy to be there. This is reflected in their classrooms and has created a school full of happy children. I never have any qualms about what teacher my child will get next year! They all have treated our children like family and go above and beyond all expectations to ensure the success of their students. Some of the teachers here attended White Point as children...how cool is that! The principal is firm but approachable and is so involved with each of the classes. She can often be seen roaming the halls and pops in to classrooms to help celebrate occasions and give special recognition. You don't just see her when you are in trouble which I think is great! This school welcomes parents with open arms and as a result has high parent involvement. The PFO is excellent and works hard to fill in the gaps when teachers have special requests for their classrooms or the school is in need. As a native of San Pedro, I have always heard great things about this school and enrolling our children here was a no-brainer! I have never ran across anyone who attended this school over the past 20 years that didn't have fond memories of their time at this little school by the sea! Some of the teachers attended White Point as children...how cool is that! I look forward to the rest or out time here and am happy to help in any way I can to make this school as great as it can be =) We love White Point!!
My 3 children all attended White Point during the 7 yrs we were stationed in LA. My husband & I were worried about schools when we first arrived because we'd not heard good things about LAUSD. We were moving from the Fairfax County Public School (FCPS) system in Northern VA which is very highly rated & very competitive.Ms. O'Brien & all the White Point staff quickly allayed our fears. Our children were challenged & inspired to learn daily. When we were transferred back to the Northern VA area & FCPS all 3 kids were well prepared.In addition, I found White Point very welcoming. Teachers & staff were friendly, personable & open to discussion & dialogue about issues, both positive & challenging. Everyone was willing to work w/me to resolve &/or improve any situation that came up.My husband & I volunteered in all of our children's classrooms & at the school for most of the functions & fundraisers. We were always encouraged to be at school & we appreciated the open & positive atmosphere & attitude of the teachers & staff, not only toward all the students but toward the parents as well.I found Ms. O'Brien to be fair, respectful, diplomatic, tactful & professional while still being approachable, friendly & caring. I continue to be amazed that she knows each of her students names & most of their older & younger siblings' names too! I got to see many of her students return to tell her what a difference she made in their lives, that was pretty cool!So, is White Point perfect? Heck no!! Just as in any organization, there are differences of opinion, personality & work ethic. Not just among the staff but between the staff, students & parents. It's to be expected, we're all unique. The difference is that at White Point, they try to make it better, to make a positive difference in a child's life. Ultimately, that's what it boils down to, answering the question, "Does White Point do the best that they can do for the students?" & the answer is most definitely, "YES!!"If you're willing to work w/the teachers & staff at White Point, you will be able to work out a compromise for almost any situation. My experience there, bore that out. White Point is the gem of LAUSD! Our kids were blessed to start school there, it was a fantastic start for all of them. We are so thankful for the hard work & dedication of the White Point teachers & staff.
