La Joya Community High School 2

They are not fair and consistent with the way the students are treated. They have a poor representation with the dean of discipline. This is a racist school that only focus is on race and color very unfortunate as the school is very diverse. Very unprofessional in speaking to Parents and more so to the students. Honestly believe she hates her job. Can not believe they have an administrator working with children like this. This is not a community high school this is a " If I like you, I will let you get away with anything with warnings, if I don't be prepared to be disciplined!" I am sure that other parents feel the same especially with the school ratings. Absolutely no school spirit, and no communication with parents until hours later by then you already know what is going on by students not administration. If you can pick another school for your child to attend do so. I have another son that attended Tolleson High School and nephews at Agua Fria and all have done amazing at those schools. The teachers and the administration are very involved in the education and the student welfare. I will never recommend this school to any other family. Until new administration come onboard.

The encounters I have had at the school are very good. Some care more than others so entrust my children to learn as much as possible.

They keep themselves busy with the amount the teachers give them. Also will give assistance as needed.

I firmly believe that they have nothing to do to inspire the students. My child learns this at home not this school. Thank God!

No!!! They do not, honestly parents need to do this to ensure they do not loose focus on what is important because this school does not care.

Again until administration changes its' behavior I do not agree with this statement, and firmly believe that the students don't care if the administration does not care.

Not all children are treated the same. Teaches the kids the division of race and color. I am very involved in the schools at the elementary level and see poor use of language and treatment of the students. No sense of encouragement or corrective actions are not consistent.

Some don't seem to actually know what they're talking about and if they do they don't fully get the information to us.

The teachers are way more passive than they should be, it seems like some are scared to discipline us.
