Point Fermin Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

April 01, 2016 Submitted by a parent
Such an amazing school and as a very involved parent it is sad to see another parent post 8 negative opinions who never helps. The district gives zero funds for gifted and this is known to all who attend a are public meetings. However my son was given a seperate ciricuium because he was so advanced and I worked together with the teacher. All gifted children are clustered as well. There is Columbia writing and partnerships with so many organizations in the community. The students go on so many field trips it is amazing. If the school is not a match for you, please quit trying to destroy what we are building at Point Fermin. Both of my children attend this school and it is exceptional. The extra funds from Titke 1 allows for computers and resources that are priceless. Be part of the solution instead of creating a problem. Point Fermin is a fantastic school with high level teachers and a wonderful new principal.

This is my daughter's second year at this school. In those 2 years the Great School rating has dropped from an 8 - the reason we chose this magnet school - to a 6. She was also tested gifted this year and absolutely NOTHING is being done about it. She already attends science class in a classroom 2 grades above her 3rd grade class.. This leaves no room for improvement as there is no higher class for her to attend next year. She often finishes her homework in the car on the 15 minute ride home. This school is starting to feel like most of the LAUSD schools that are just getting their students by. She has a great teacher this year, but unfortunately there are problem students in her class that require most of the teacher's attention, often leaving my 8 year old daughter to her own devices for education or tutoring other kids in the class. I would be FAR better off home schooling her, but the LAUSD requires you to have a teaching certificate to do so. Just shows they are not interested in your child's education, only that they show up so the school can get it's money. Well it looks like it's time for another school to get our money.

This is a great school despite it's API scores. I reviewed other higher local schools, but believed this was a good fit for my son based on his interests. A child can be a high acheiver if parents advocate for them and making certain that collaboration takes place with teachers and staff. All members are very responsive when contacted. The PTO does an excellent job in fundraising, and creating fun activites. There is much volunteering for students to have art classes and dance classes. The curriculum is challenging and rewarding when you visit your childs class and see their hard work. Student 3rd-5th grade select a science topic of interest and get to work with different teachers and interact with different grade leveled students. The campus is small and very clean. Unfortunately, the playing apparatus is small and there is limited space to play. However, the students have several local field trip locations to visit, such as the Cabrillo Aquarium, Angels Gate, The Mammal Ctr, Bird Ctr., and the Korean Bell. My son is transitioning well at his new school thanks to everyone I had the pleasure in making thus happen.

This was our first and only year at Point Fermin BUT we had the best first year of school a parent could ask for. My son was is Mr. Cima's class and he is a fantastic teacher. The rest of the staff is great too and all take huge pride in the school. The marine science magnet program is like icing on the cake too. We are moving out of the city or we would have stayed through 5th grade for sure. All the field trips and extra stuff the school does is great and a lot is funded by the PTO using lot of fund raising money. How could you not like a school that has a pirate picnic day for the families?! So freaking awesome! I love you Point Fermin and I am sad to leave you.

Point Fermin is a special school. The teachers are smart, dedicated, and caring. The administration works hard to keep things running smoothly. There is an active PTO who continuously are running fundraisers and sponsoring activities such as Art to Grow On for the school. The charming, beautiful school is newly painted and sits on a green hill overlooking the ocean and the port. As a marine science magnet, the students go on science field trips to the Cabrillo Aquarium and other locations throughout the year. The school is gated and safe, and the students are interested in learning, happy, and generally well-behaved. I am one of the teachers who was out on illness this year. I assure you that I was not taking advantage of the Union, deeply care about the students, and am appreciative of all the good Point Fermin has to offer.
