The new principal is....UGH! Look, I love the teachers and all, but the person that runs this school isn't very, per se, good. She shouldn't really be principal at all. Sometimes she has her good moments, but overall and on average...she isn't really good at her job. She isn't exactly responsible. The thing is, I LOVE this school and my parents do too, but this year, the new principal let me down. I mean, letting her run this school has ruined my life. Even my parents support me on this. HELP US, PLEASE!!!
This school is great. New principal is awesome! The mom that wrote about the teacher with the accent- if you're teaching your kid, then good luck because your spelling and grammar is below satisfactory! lol. The accent is likely to benefit your child because studies show being exposed to another language benefits the brain. Now with all the budget cuts there are 30 + students in a room and no aid, so I make sure to volunteer with helping teachers prep, so they can focus more on teaching and less on paperwork. Parents might want to do the same to eliminate the complaining.
New Lexington is an amazing place for kids to learn and thrive. Many extra activities keep kids connected to school. Dedicated teachers make all the difference in students' academic progress! Very active parent participation. New Lexington consistently scores above the district and state averages on standardized tests and scores improve every year. New Lexington is definitely a Shining Star!
My two children have attended New Lexington Elementary beginning kindergarden through six grade. The school was remodeled a couple of years ago with a new building including a new computer lab. Its teachers and staff are among the most dedicated teachers I have ever met. The school has made large improvements becoming with earning the California Distinguished School title two years ago and a Star school title. The parent involvement program is among the best in the El Monte School District. I highly recommend sending your kids to this great school. Thank you for all hard work. New Lexington Rocks!
This school is a great school. The staff members are all well trained and qualified for their job. They have a HOSTS program (Help One Student To Succeed). HOSTS is to help students who needs help in language arts. They also have homework club in which students can get help on their homework.
