I put my daughter in tracy 6 years ago because of the Dual Language Program. The Program is a great opportunity for children to learn a second language, however, not all teachers were meant to be teachers. What do you do when your child get's a terrible teacher but the school (principal) refuses to move her to a different class? Then as they get older (next grades) the options are reduced from 2 teachers per grade to 1 teacher so you are stuck with that teacher. My daughter has had 2 terrible teachers and as involved as we are, we got no support from the school. Excellent teachers who deserve to be recognized: Mrs. Mendez, Mrs. Perez, Mr. & Mrs. Montes, Mrs. Chase.

THIS IS MY SONS FIRST YEAR AT TRACY...I HAVE TO SAY...I AM EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE PRINCIPLE AND HER EXPLANATIONS AND EXCUSES. MY SON WAS AND STILL CURRENTLY GETS BULLIED AND IT SEEMS LIKE NOTHING IS BEING DONE. THIS OTHER CHILD HAS BEEN SUSPENDED MORE THAN 5 TIMES AND HAS PHYSICALLY HIT MY SON MORE TIMES THAN I CAN COUNT. I HAVE TRIED CONTACTING THE BPUSD..AND GOT NO WHERE..EVERYDAY I DREAD SENDING MY SON TO SCHOOL...SCARED ABOUT WHAT HE WILL HAVE TO PUT UP WITH DURING HIS DAY...THE ONE GOOD THING I HAVE TO SAY IS ABOUT HIS TEACHER.MRS MENDOZA...MY SON LOVES HER...SHE TEACHES HIM..AND MAKES SURE HE IS COMPREHENDING AS OPPOSED TO JUST LISTENING TO WHAT SHE SAYS. SHE IS BY FAR THE ONE AND ONLY "GOOD QUALITY" ABOUT THAT SCHOOL.

Tracy was a great school, among the top five in Baldwin Park. It now ranks second to the lowest in API scores. That is a shame because teachers do work hard, especially those part of the Dual Language program. They truly care about the school and their students. Leadership on part of the principal leaves a lot to be desired. There is no real follow through in educational programs or incentives for students. Her efforts are exhausted in "closing a campus" imparting a sense that the school is not safe. Yet, she is rarely visiting classrooms. The principal is rarely visible, last year on many occasions where I attended school assemblies and functions she was not present. How can one lead a school if one is not present? Baldwin Park should really consider removing mediocre principals rather than shuffling them to a different school. Real leadership is needed if there is to be substantial growth. Our students deserve it!

Tracy Elementary School - Where does a person start to rate!? By API, CST, Teachers, Parents, Professionalism, Lenght of Service, Etc., Etc.. High API's does not mean a school is great, it means it has a high a API. What makes a school great is a combination of people, tests, activities, professionalism, etc.. The one quality that Tracey Elementary School does exceptionally, and exceeds all other schools, my son and I have attended, or visited is this: Respectfully intelligent human beings that show care and concern. Plus, the ability to create communications and individuality, with the students and parents, and truely showing character as professional educators. So, in this respectful light of all matters, Tracey Elementary is given a Five-Star Rating from me!

My daughter attends Tracey & despite some of the kids I see, the teachers are doing the best they can with the very little they have. Nonetheless, I do like the way Tracey constantly reminds the kids about College! Interesting, if we could collect more data and follow this kids throughout college.

I have been teaching at this school for eight years. Before Tracy I taught at LAUSD for 15 years. This school has hard working teachers who are commited to help their students. Teachers at Tracy are trained and qualified to teach all learners. Because of this and their great Dual-Language program I have decided, as well as many other teachers before me, to bring my 5 year old to this school and enroll him in the DL program. I am amazed at my sons growth and aquisition of the new language in such short months. The school is safe and full of caring people.

My child is enrolled for the 2007-08 year in the Kindergarten class and I'm extremely unhappy with the safety, leadership, and cirriculum. Of the 5 weeks of school thus far in the year, there has been 3 lock-downs. My child can do all his homework in his sleep and there hasn't been any effort by his teacher to challenge him because the majority of the class isn't up to par with State standards as visible on the test scores. Maybe it's the parents' fault or maybe the school is incapable of guiding and challenging the children, but whatever it is, I demand more from my local school and since it can't do it, I'm moving my child out.

Being a parent of three children at Tracy E.S will be a brand new adventure for my children and my husband and I, And most of the teachers do an amazing job leading our children into their own path, I feel we definitely need 'TEAMWORK' A strong leader for both children and staff, to show our student, kids, parents, teachers and other team players we are on all the same side, And together we can all make a difference. Thanks Again to a great year 06-07. . .Here we come 2008-09 Go Trojans, The Ochoa Family

There have been many changes to Tracy Elementary since the fall of 2005 - not all of them favorable. The teachers do a good job given the large class sizes and I appreciate their efforts along with those of the front office staff. The school is adequete, but has the potential to be better if only they had stronger, more visible leadership.
