I attended Jonas Salk in 1995-1997. I would love to say that I liked attending, but that wasn't the case. I'm a native Spanish speaker, and every time I would say something in Spanish to one of my classmates, who also spoke Spanish, the teachers would yell at us and MAKE us speak English. I felt embarrassed of my culture because of this. No child should EVER feel that way.

My sisters and I were a student back in 1962 - 1963. When people say where were when John F. Kennedy was shot, i can say i was in the play ground there at school. Even thou I was young It sticks in my head. I had so many good memories, like I worked in the kitchen making bread and cookies. It was here that my mom was in the Look Magizine for fighting the phonics program in the district. But most of all was the Holiday Pagents. I will never forget my time there. David Pedal

Some teachers are excellent, like Mr. Kieber & Mr. Thomas, and the office secretaries are very nice, but others do not give as much effort to the students. The principal, Dr. Von Sprecken, seems too focused on her reading programs. I completely agree that reading is good, but she did not give attention to other aspects of the schol and community. I often felt like my child did not get that much attention in certain great levels. I saw very few parents volunteer & for the most part the parents do not take the time to get to know their child's teacher. The students are constantly tested, and although the teachers do their best to prepare them for these tests, it seems to be lots of tests and not a lot of quality learning. I feel the school has a poor culture & sense of family.

My child is in Special Education. The teachers and aids are great with the children. They strive to make sure every child reaches their individual goals and also surpass them as we all hope is possible. The artistic,musical and extracurricular activities these teachers provide is very creative at times. Especially since they are limited with the budget which is given to them. I have found that they use their own funds to enhance the opportunities for these children which to me is a God sent. Most of these children do not have the funds to contribute to a trip or even pay for school lunch. The level of parent involvement unfortunatley is minimal but they do an excellent job with each child inspite of the lack of involvement. I am very happy with the loving and caring atmosphere my child is in.

My child is in a special ed class for pre-schoolers at Salk School. Our son's pre-school teacher worked on-on-one with him to help him attain his IEP goals. I think my son's teacher is highly skilled and also very kind, patient, and understanding, not only toward the kids but also towards the parents. Working with developmentally challenged kids takes a very special person. I give credit to Salk Elementary for finding this teacher who was willing to teach, help, and guide developmentally delayed kids. However, I can only speak for one special ed teacher as I'm not familiar with the other ones. But this one teacher is very special and I'm glad my son was in her classroom at Salk.

They do not provide enough homework. The kids will end up as either harrassers or abusers. There will be a select few who will succeed. Our future is in jeopardy. Boys hitting girls, girls spewing vulgarities. Where is the supervision.

Sure, the one parent who placed their review, was lucky enough to have had Mr. Keiber. Whom by the way is a wonderful teacher! Since my child has attended Salk Elementary, there has been nothing but problems! It doesn't stem from my child either. Some of the things I have personally witnessed have been shocking! Not always involving my child, but with other children and teachers. Anywhere from theft, vandelism, certain teachers yelling. There is obviously too many chiefs and not enough indians. Teachers are suppose to be mentors not wardens. The most unfortunate thing is that so many parents are unaware of what is going on or how their child is being treated! My advice is to show up unannounced and do so many times. Just observe and listen secretly. Everywhere!

My son is currently enrolled in Salk, the teachers are beyond anything I could have expected and more. The dedication they have to their students is unquestionable and beyond what I have seen, a prime example is Mr. Keiber a first grade teacher who goes beyond anything expected and enthralls the children with wonderful creativity while teaching them dicipline, dedications, organization and of course reading and writting. Its a joy to see someone like Mr. keiber with his class. J. & C. Ruiz Proud Salk Parents
