Love this school!! Not just because I went here but because the staff, teachers and even the janitors are excellent!! Wish my son didn't have to leave this school because we moved to a different city:( The teachers are very helpful and energetic. The staff is wonderful and I must say I do miss my son going to this school.
The staff especially the principal is very very ghetto, with the exception of a lady that sits in the front desk in the office, most of them need to learn how to be more professional. My son attends this school and I cannot wait until the school years ends so i could transfer him out of the school. I believe the school can be a really great school if the princibal was transferred out of the school. It seems as though she is worried about the funding for the school instead of the education for the students. She encourages the parents and students to come on time and participate in the school programs only so that the school can get funding instead of stating other benefits in doing so. Don't get me wrong benefits are pointed out, but after she stresses the funding. Its clear what she is more concerned about and that type of princibal is not someone i want to be a leader for a school i have my child attending. The way I've heard the staff there talk about the students and the parents does not show me they're concern for the childs education.
I went to this school on today in order to get more information and to see if I would be able to tour the facility. I was greeted by two very unfriendly women. They were rude and did not attempt to make their school a place where children ( or adults for that matter) would feel welcomed and safe. Not sure about the school or it's teachers, however, the front office staff members are the first faces the public sees. And often, this is where first impressions are formed. Needless to say I would not send my children or anyone ele's to this school.
Dolores Street School offers a variety of multicultural events for the students, staff and community members to participate in. There are six multicultural programs per year, focusing on ethnic groups found at the school site. There are a variety of music programs geared toward the holidays, as well as toward science activities.
Every parent would love their child to experience the high academics, support and family/community interaction that my son has received at Dolores Elementary. The staff, children and community truely work together to enhance student achievement. The environment at Dolores is similar to that of a family---even through adversity there is progress, support and especially love. Staff and community members, alike, are proactive in meeting children's needs. There is a true understanding that a child cannot succeed academically if his/her pychological, physical, social and emotional needs are not also met. I would not change the education my son is receiving at Dolores Street Elementary for any other one!
I went to this school when I was a child and wanted my children to have the same experience that I had while attending Dolores Street. The entire staff from the administration, to the teachers, to the janitorial staff genuinely care about the students first and the appearance of the school. My son's teachers call me at home to keep me up to date with his progress and to let me know if I need to give my son additional one-on-one help at home to help with special projects, or testing. That tells me that they care about my son and his well-being. We have a wonderful group of people working at Dolores Street with our children and I hope that everyone can experience the joy that my family has had being at this school.
