I am happy my child was lucky enough to attend Benton during the great times. Now it looks like it on it's way back to the dark side. Tragic turn of events and it is being blamed on needing a few more teachers? I am very happy we are no longer in the Norwalk La Mirada school district. I could go on but there is no point.

I am happy with the education my children received at NLMUSD. They all went to elem, middle and high school at NLMUSD schools. I couldn't be more proud of the intelligent, well rounded, successful adults they are today. Their teachers and counselor at LMHS are responsible for this. Keep up the good work, NLMUSD!

To Another Parent, You must be an employee or board member of the district because you are way off on your praise for NLMUSD. Please look what has happened to Benton Middle School. My child just graduated from there and what the district has allowed to happen to two season educators is just a crime. When will NLMUSD treat the educators who excel in every way with respect?

If you took a guided tour to the schools in Los Angeles you would have a new
Found appreciation for the exposure that our children are obtaining. The staff cares and the fact the teachers take an active interest in our children. Kari Martinez deserves teacher of the century a gem if we had a just one Kari Martinez in every
District it would make a difference to the world of teaching. No masters, pH.d could compare to her giving nature and the true dedication she sincerely exhibit is beyond the call of duty.

The only reason Gotto was selected as principal by Perez was to show parents that he has show biz in his blood and he can catapult your child to stardom with his connections even though he didn't use them for hisself. Don't be fooled cuz the White Power Ranger wont be coming to your kid's rescue!
