  • PS#1 cultivates highly competent and confident learners without constantly emphasizing competition and testing. We have two kids in the school and we love how and what they're learning (and at what pace they're learning). This is a smart school for parents who want their kid to actually have a childhood. We're really impressed with how our fourth grader has developed to be an ambitious learner (motivated from WITHIN--not out of fear of failing or a desire to please) who is self-possessed and confident. We're also blown away when we see how comfortable she is conversing with adults (a skill that eluded us as children!). We attribute these things to her time at PS#1. If you're a micro-manager of a parent, stay away. If you want a great school with a great community, check it out.

  • Our daughter is in her third year at PS#1, and our whole family loves the school. There is great leadership, very involved and friendly parents, and really good teachers. It is wonderful to find a supportive, diverse, and inclusive community in Los Angeles that allows kids to be kids. The balance of the curriculum, arts, P.E., recess and learning through games makes the school a fun place to attend and visit. Our daughter also asks to attend the aftercare program, so she can play with friends from other classes. The supervision and activities are great, and we never hesitate to have her participate throughout the year. We also appreciate the two-year age-range and two teacher structure of all the classes. Last year, during a family crisis, we were also able to rely on the school community to get us through a difficult few months. It made that time much easier because we knew our daughter and family were being supported. The school plays an important role for our family, and we have really enjoyed being a part of it.

  • My child is in his second year at the school, and we have been very happy with the Head of School and the teachers. The parents at the school are involved with their children and very active at the school, many interesting programs are run by parents such as a book fair, Dishversity day, Grandparents and special friends day, an annual fundraiser, parent education meetings, drop in social coffees, etc. Children learn the basics and beyond through teaching that is group and project based. They also take many field trips. Children learn how to cooperate with one another. There is not excessive homework. The afterschool care program is excellent, children of all ages play together. Overall, my husband and I feel that the school is helping our son grow academically, emotionally and socially, and we are happy to be a part of the school community.
