My child attended Santa Cruz Valley Union High School last year and I am very dis satisfied with the education she received. The teachers are unwilling to help when the children have a question. If you have an option, do not send your child there.
The Principal has to wake up and get started. Take actions against against the kids giving behavior problems. Lend full support to your teachers. The teachers are very enthusiastic and devoted inspite of being not heard by the principal.
The school is trying to make some changes which will enhance the educational environment, however there are still huge gaps. Parents, administrators and the community will all have to work together to make real changes.
