At Marcus Garvey School, what families say about us means a lot. Read below some of the great experiences our families have had with us.


Comments from some of our parents, students, teachers, and alumni:

Marcus Garvey is one of the finest, if not the best school in the Greater Los Angeles area. Educationally, children are made to believe that there are no limits to what they can learn or achieve, as little brown and black students, they are taught to take pride in who they are and what they represent, and more importantly, they are taught manners and respect for each other. A big shout out to the entire faculty and administrative body of this great school; located right in our community!

Marcus Garvey School is a wonderful school. As a result of their excellent teaching and advanced curriculum, I attended my first college class at the age of 14. Also, since I graduated from MGS, Sis, Saunders continue to make sure that I am involved in varies programs. At the moment, I am the president of the MGS Junior National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), which is organized by students from Cal State LA. Thanks Sis. Saunders and the Marcus Garvey family for all of your support.

Marcus Garvey is a wonderful school. I have a grandchild at this school and he is doing well. I recently attended his kindergarten graduation and was amazed to hear and see these children learning things that I didn’t learn until I was in the 8th grade. They are also learning about themselves, which is something they definitely need to know. I also had a grandchild graduate from MGS and he is attending high school and doing exceptionally well. Yes, Marcus Garvey has a very good curriculum for our children.

Excellent math and science program in a small classroom setting. So students who could get “lost” in these subjects, instead develop a sound understanding and appreciation of math and science. The exposure to history for people of color is more diverse than LAUSD. The campus is small and the kids can’t get away with much trouble making. Excellent learning environment.

Marcus Garvey School has been a blessing for my family. I believe that the academic expectations for African American and Latino American boys are extremely low. I wanted to find an environment where African Americans excelled and are not allowed to give excuses. We are simply amazed by our 3 year old who is writing, spelling, adding and is excited about going to school and learning more! Marcus Garvey has a well-rounded academic and arts curriculum instructed by caring teachers. I can t pick my son up too early from school because he doesn t want to miss any of the work. Although my child is in pre-school, I am working with the middle school students at the Marcus Garvey Robotics Club where we meet once a week. We have many intelligent parents that get involved here. I think that the future is bright at Marcus Garvey.

This is the best school I know for black kids. They educate them for their style and ways of learning. The teachers are like 2nd parents so the kids don’t get out of line. I love this school.
