I went to this school many years ago, now my children go there. They have great teachers but lack structure in classes. My sons in kinder and when the teachers gone the sub doesn't even know where the teacher left off on her ciriculum. School should be more organized in each classroom AS to what there teaching and teachers should dress more proffesinal. Some teachers come to school looking like they rolled out of bed and BAM!! now in class ready to teach with nappy hair and morning breath... LORD BLESS THIS SCHOOL. :(

Back in the 90s I use to be a student there. I really don't have the best memories of that school at all. My classmates use to tease me bcuz my parents had split up and they were always calling me names. Whenever I told my teachers about this they would respond that I just had to try harder at making friends. also the teacher would tell to grow up and to stop being such a baby in front of the whole class which made me feel embarrassed and I would start crying bcuz all my classmates would laugh at me bcuz of what the teacher would say to me. So all and all I was happy when we moved away and to leave that school

gosh where to start? at the beginning i thought how lucky is my son to have two teachers but now i see that they don't really do much for him.. they always have teacher parent conferences with me due to the fact that they say my son is too quiet in the morning and too hyper after lunch so we always end up with different plans that they never follow thru. my son has been bullied several times and my son would come home crying because the teachers wouldn't even let him speak. i had to go and talk to the teachers several times regarding that so they could do something. the principal drops the ball all the time she says she's going to call you or schedule a meeting with you and it takes you calling several times for her to get it together and no communication between her and the teachers. my son has ADD and i feel like they're so annoyed by him already that they just ignore him and never want to hear what he has to say. i thought they believed in no student is left behind but that is truly not the case.

Unfortunately, the teachers at Hawaiian Gardens Elementary treat the students as though they are charity cases, take their union paychecks and move along. Many students are from Spanish-speaking households and parents are unaware that their children would be better served by charter schools, instead of union contracts.

It is a school that tries to meet the educational needs of a diverse, low-income population but often meets adversity due to lack of resources

This school is safe and good for my kids. Although the test scores may not show all that this school is, the teachers are real dedicated and hard working. My son really made progress this year. There are so many things to worry about as a single mother, but for now, I am happy that my son is following the rules and staying out of trouble. He made a lot of friends since coming to this school. I am thankful.

This school has always been staffed by hard-working and dedicated teachers. They instruct a student population that is challenging to say the least. Their implementation of the SFA Reading Program has helped students make great strides in reading.

I was a student at this school, when I was only a spanish speaker. Now that I am an adult I am so thankful for the care that I was given here. I am full of memories, from sitting up straight during Mrs. Carters stories to Mrs. Gonzales music. I am so thankful for these angels, thank you.
