Okay! This school went down when Dr.Jones came. It's not as fun. The cafeteria's food went worse. The lunchladys are sometimes rude. When i was in Mrs.Pearson's class (excellent teacher) we couldn't even get through out teaching with all the disruptions in our class. We didn't get to learn everything we were suppose to! I got a tardy slip for missing 5 minutes. But i still got perfect attendance? They didn't give me a Saturday School slip for missing 5 minutes. Now I have to be at school for an extra 5 hours and 55 minutes?!? That's not right.
I totally disagree with the last parent review regarding the comment regarding Dr. Jones. I have met with her regarding my child and she was not only very knowledgeable about ways I could help my son, but also very personable. She's a great asset to this school! Also, lots of excellent teachers here too!
last year was the best year of my life, school wise. the sixth grade team was the best, especially the GATE teachers. Jurupa Vista also has the GATE club, who meets once a month. the teachers were nice, the kids were nice, and lets not forget the science camp!
I have had two children go thru this school and currently have a 3rd in 5th grade. They have all excelled and are in Gate classes. For the most part all of the teachers are willing to help in all academical areas and communicate well with parents.
Growing up in this elementary school was one of my most memorable experiences and all I've ever wanted to do was give back to my school family. There are many people teachers and employees alike that have worked hard to provide a better life for their students. I remember this school and I think back of all the help and inspiration everyone had given me. Without them I would not have had a reason to move forward and now I wish them that same fate.
Kudos to the new principal and all the teachers who worked hard on making this school better. A great leap from the previous leadership. Keep up the good work and hoping for higher API next year...ergo, higher than 5 school rating.
