Vallejo Mill is a good school. The school is a nice size, not large and overcrowded like some in the area. The school has a culturally diverse population and is home to a Spanish immersion program offered by the FUSD. Parents should remember that school is what you make of it and it is not just about the test scores. Life experiences are also important! Parent involvement has a direct affect on student achievement. There are lots of ways to be involved at this school beyond the PTA. The staff is welcoming and encourages parental involvement.
My son is very smart but not very motivated. The teachers don't push him at all and he does poor work. Maybe the class size is too large, but he doesn't get the attention he needs. His 2nd grade teacher didn't even know he could speak English. It makes me mad that he's been there 3 years. We are moving because the school hasn't been good for him at all.
Love this school! Don't be fooled by the rating, the school is great for our kids because the teacher to class size is ideal where your child is not just a number but the teachers actually know them by name. The teachers are terrific here as they provide the kids with more care than the other more highly rated schools. Also the other parents are down to earth and friendly. The only slight negative I've had is sometimes the teachers give too much homework.
I love sending my son to this school! This is not our home school but I don't have a plan to change him to his home school because we all love this school their way of teaching and the way of behaving with parents!
