At one time. It was very good. Now with the districts new challenges to compete in education. The leaders are looking outward for answers, Instead of looking within their own infrastructure. By first eliminating the administrators that are poor performers. And being transparent with their students' parents.
Great school!! Their principal, Dr. P rez (USC graduate), focuses on preparing students for college. She makes sure students attend school regularly and on time. She also has a"Coffee with the Principal"meeting once a month for parents to share their ideas or any concerns they may have. They also have college rallies and each classroom represents a college or university.Great school with such an awesome principal and great teachers too!!!
Foster is a great school with great teachers. My son is in the Dual Language Program and has exceeded my expectations. He has scored Advance Proficient in both subjects since he started taking the state tests. I thank his wonderful, caring teachers who have guided him through not only one language but the challenge of a second language. I applaud everyone at Foster School.
This is by far one of the best schools I have ever volunteered at. The Principal Mrs. Perez is amazing, she stays involved and busy with school activities. She has a "Coffee with the Principal" meeting once a month where parents speak freely with her and she addresses all concerns. Mrs. Perez's passion for helping create the ultimate elementary experience for all is out of this world! One can only wish all schools would have a Mrs. Perez leading them... Baldwin Park ranks amongst the 3 top elemetary schools in town and is filled with teachers that genuinely care.
I am Very Blessed to have my kids go to this School, Teachers a great and the Principal is a People person!
My daughters have been in this school for 5 years now and we love it. All of their teachers have been great, making the class fun for students and very accessible for parents to be involved. The principal has always had an open door policy and is very involved with the students and parents. My husband has received several job opportunities out of this district, but we have decided to stay simply because of our daughters progress in this school. They are both in the dual-immersion program and have excelled tremendously! They offer several after-school programs also.
We're very fortunate to have the staff, teachers and principal that we have here at Foster, the teachers are great, the dual-immersion program is excellent and there are plenty of work-shops for all the parents for every subject.
Overall the school is good. The staff is curtious and knowledgeable. The teachers are nice and make learning fun for the students. The Principal is parent accessable, friendly, easy to talk with, and eager to work with parents in the best interest of the child.
