Gary Moskowitz For her students who don't necessarily excel at mathematics, Glendale High School Co-principal Lou Stewart understands. "I was math-phobic myself," Stewart said. "I can definitely relate." But with her school showing a higher pass rate on the latest California High School Exit Exam than county and statewide averages, Stewart is confident her students are making progress in math and English, phobias or no. The state Department of Education recently released its annual California High School Exit Exam reports, based on students in the classes of 2004 and 2005 who took the test during the 2002-03 school year.

Spending summer in school usually means a student is making up work or trying to get ahead. But for the 20 or so student volunteer tutors at Columbus Elementary School, summer school has different purpose. These children, mostly in the fifth and sixth grades, give a month of their leisure time to help younger students learn in a peer-tutoring program. "Any class can have a tutor as long as the teacher is willing to accept the student for that month," said Cay Ledesma, the at-risk intervention teacher at Columbus Elementary.

Judy Seckler JOHN MUIR ELEMENTARY -- Like immigrants at the turn of the century, whose first sight of Ellis Island signaled the promise of a better life, John Muir Elementary School in South Glendale is a beacon welcoming many of the city's immigrant children. Immigrant families from Armenia, Mexico, Korea, the Philippines, Russia, various Arab countries, Persia, Vietnam, Japan, China, Bulgaria, Thailand, Bengal and Assyria all have staked a claim in the neighborhood surrounding the elementary school.

Kristopher Azizkhani used a sponge to remove the mistakes he made in his erasable book of the Armenian alphabet at Jefferson Elementary School on Thursday. With a black marker, the 6-year-old practiced writing the letters and sounding out words that corresponded with the pictures in his book. As he made his marks and erased them, he did what Armenian students have done for hundreds of years — he learned the language of his ethnic heritage. Kristopher is one of about 20 kindergarten students in the school's language magnet academy.

Gary Moskowitz SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Angela Oganesyan, a sixth-grade student at John Muir Elementary School, is learning how to turn drawings into moving, animated pictures. Angela, 11, and about 100 other students spent most of the day Thursday taking individual cells, or drawings, and putting them together to make an animated feature about a character who has taken a punctured inner tube to a pool party. "It's neat because you can learn and have fun at the same time," Angela said.

"He's always helpful and he's kind." Arthur and his classmates at John Muir Elementary School were practicing their writing skills by writing stories about a special friend.
