My school is great love the staff, students and parents. We all work very hard.
This school is one of the worst schools ever! I would not recommend for any parent to enroll their child in this school. the location is horrible, it is located in a gang neighborhood. the teachers and no good they don't care about their students because they have too many in the classroom to focus on its just ridiculous..the staff in the office is never up to date on their work. its just horrible all together so sad.
This school is awful! We live right down the street and witnesed the unruly parents and their children driving by and dropping off their kids with very little respect for our community. I have 3 children, two of which are elementary age and I have to commute them across town to a school that that is descent and reputable. The sad part is that both my spouse and I used to attend this school as children. Back then, it was a whole lot different. So sad!
**********PLEASE READ***** I have attended this school since kindergarden2000 till my sixth grade and being a sudent at the school i have to say yes eachers are going to be be different its life some are mean others are sweethearts and caring but that swhy theres an administration to report. i loved this school , in my time PARENTS did come the teachers didnt have to drive them there and every wednesday "yellow paket" giving students paper galore about info. i was upset reading some reviews but i have to say since i moved to texas right before junior high this school is AMAZING teacher actually teach! my school the kids dont know how to do anything this school made me skip two grades in texas education so please love what you have parents.
This school has a lot of caring wonderful teachers, it also has some that in my opinion are not doing their best. My child went to this school but began to achieve higher things in Jr. High.
I feel that as a parent the education of our children come first and that every parent will do what is best for there children education and safety.
I'm sorry that the previous parent felt that way. I feel that the teachers are going above and beyond to communicate. My sons' teachers would frequently stay late to work with my children or pull me aside to talk to me about any concerns they might have. But, in the long run...wherever you go, there you are.
I hate this school, there's no communication between parents and staff. No phone calls are returned the teachers act like your bothering them. they would rather 'tadle' on your child and leave it at that then work with you. My son has been here for a total of 1 month and he will not be returning next year.
My daughter attended this school for two months before I pulled her out and put her in private school. Parent involvement is seriously lacking. I saw about 5 parents, with a class size of over 30, who attended back to school night.
The teachers seem to gossip about the students a lot and I find that innapropriate. It seems like an okay school but I'm glad that my daughter will be moving on after her last year.
I do agree the quality has gone down. It seems teachers unfortunately are dealing with politics and having to fight to teach their students. Therefore, taking attention and energy away from the kids. Parents need to be more involved in school and at home not just with extracurricular activities.
My child attended this school from 2nd through 6th grades. During this time, she was identified with a learning disability by an excellent school psychologist and resource teacher. She also had access to very caring teachers at times. Some of the teachers are obviously burned out and overwhelmed by the lack of discipline so obviously evident in the school's culture.
Pacific Drive has a mixture in it's staff, some teachers are great and really care about the students, others don't.
Mariann Martin is the best part of Pacific Drive schhol. Any student lucky enough to have met her has a place in her heart for the rest of their lives! Thank Heaven for such a loving person helping to teach children.
I not only worked at this school for four years but my child has gone there from K-6. This school has significantly gone down in all aspects. The leadership is so below average that I will no longer participate in volunteering. The school as whole has become somewhere that I am disappointed to have my child attending. It is a shame because it has a lot of potential. They need to evaluate the staff and make appropriate changes to begin a reformation. Some of the teachers are the best I have ever encountered but sadly some of the worst as well. I am very disheartened parent.
School is over populated and there is a large number of English as a second language students. But the teachers are very involved and very caring and interseted in there students progress.
