I had two sons attend almond.I regret not transf. them sooner both boys were way behind. Transf. my youngest to Etiwanda dist. they held him back his first year but now seem to be doing much better.They have many programs to help the children where as if Almond does have the programs I was not aware of them.My son enjoys going to school and reading,, now that I've transfered him out of Almond.Principal is non- approachable, very intimidating.Low test scores also say alot about the education the children at Almond Elementary are receiving.
I think overall the teacher's there are great, very involved in what is going on with everyone of their students. I could name one in particular, Mrs. Hanslik she is so dedicated to helping the students improve and will go above and beyond to make sure they are on the level they need to be on. Office staff is great. Yes, I do believe more activities like field trips are REQUIRED so children have fun at the same time as they are learning.
Need improvement as far as parent involment. Principal needs to learn more of the hispanic culture which is a high percentage of the hispanic kids attending Almond Elementary alsothe lack of not been bilingual unables the pricipal to comunicate with parents during parent meetings that's just one of resons parents do not attend tea parent & pricipal meetings. even though is an intrepreter they are not competent to transalate correctly. Almond Elementar is not improving as far as meeting the academic standars needs direction and stronger undertanding of all the cultural values attending.
there is a need for more extracurriculator activties, field trips, plays.
