State Testing Begins

All grade 3-5 Park Western Place students will participate in the annual Smarter Balanced state testing beginning March 20 - June 5, 2016.  Students will be assessed on their achievement toward meeting the CA Common Core State Standards.  We want all PWP/HGM students to work hard to achieve.  We have found that students reading at or above grade level meet or exceed standard each year, so make sure that you students reads every day for 20 minutes or more. 

You may take the Smarter Balanced Practice Tests as a guest at any time at:


Jazz In Schools Concert at PWP

The Los Angeles Jazz Society brought a free live jazz concert to over 400 of the third, fourth and fifth grade students at Park Western through the Jazz in Schools program. During the concert our students learned about different instruments, styles of jazz, and how jazz relates and influences popular music today. Our students were inspired by the men and women in the jazz ensemble and eager to learn more. Art education is important at Park Western Place School and we are grateful for this experience.


Thank You San Pedro Wednesday Club

The San Pedro Wednesday Club recently donated funds to our school to purchase robotics kits so that we may continue to inspire our students to strive to be the next generation of scientists and engineers. We appreciate their strong belief in our teachers and generous contribution to our school.

Arts Experiences at Park Western Place

Arts education and experiences are important to our students.  In addition to the ongoing field trips to the J. Paul Getty Museum, our students have been fortunate to experience two special arts performances in December.  Most students had the opportunity to attend a live theater performance of Roald Dahl's The BGF, performed by The Troupe, a San Pedro youth theater group here at Park Western Place.  Several of our own Park Western Place students stared in the performance!  A new book was also given to all students in attendance.  Thank you Alison Freedman of The Troupe for making this possible.

All of our third grade students also had the opportunity to attend a performance of The Nutcracker Ballet, performed by the San Pedro Ballet Company at the wonderful Warner Grand Theater here in San Pedro.  The performance was magical!  We are proud of  all of our students who danced in the performance.  Our LAUSD Board of Education member Dr. Vladovic helped to make this trip possible by providing transportation for our students.   Thank you San Pedro Ballet Company, Warner Grand Theater, Lora Caudill, and Dr. Vladovic!

Our Park Western Place and Harbor Magnet students were on CBS Channel 2 and KCAL Channel 9 during the November 17th noon weather report.  During the visit, meteorologist Craig Herrera brought the Toyota Mobile Weather Lab and his team spoke with the students and answered questions about science, weather, education, college and career.  This was and exciting and informative experience for our students.  Thank you CBS television stations for honoring us with the visit.  You may view the clips below.

If your child is an ongoing magnet student, there is no need to reapply each school year.  However, if your child is in 5th grade, you will need to apply to the magnet program of your choice to be considered for that school.  To assist you in decisions about which magnet program is the best fit for your child, there will be various Magnet Open Houses and Magnet Fairs throughout the district.

  • Local District South will hold a Magnet Fair on October 27 from 5:30 to 7:30 at Stephen White MS in Carson.  Elementary, middle and high school magnet programs will be represented.  This will be a convenient opportunity to learn about all the magnet programs that are available in our local area.
