I agree with the other review . I have 2 girls and a boy that attend this school and I have never seen a girl in the special needs classroom. It must be someone in the school that wrote the review because the principal doesnt do much to help the students. The teachers are the ones that work with the kids and help them out. The teachers are very good with the kids. My kids always say the principal is always screaming at the kids and treats them as if they were in military school. I wish they would change principals. I heard from one of the teachers that the principal was thinking of retiring. I hope she does. The old principal was much better than this new one. I also like the volunteer parents. They help the kids alot. My daughter is in 4th grade and one day she had an accidenta and the parent room helped her out with a pair of uniform pants. I love this school , but without the principal.
This is a wonderful school. The only thing they have to change is the principal. She is grouchy and mean with the kids. The teachers and office ladies are very nice. I also like the parent center. I saw a post here about a girl being in the special needs classroom, but I dont think thats true because both my kids have gone here for the past 5 years and I have NEVER seen a girl in the special needs classroom. My brother works for the afterschool program LEARNS and he has told me that many of the kids dont like the principal. They say she always screams at the kids when they do something wrong and she has her favorite students that she helps out more. The teachers are all very nice. I also like the breakfast in the classroom program. Its all because of the students hard work and not because of the principal. people shouldnt give her credit for others work. I as a parent help my kids alot. Hopefully they change the principal because she isnt as nice as people think.
El Sereno Elementary has dedicated teachers and staff. Parents are very involved and volunteer to run a valet service as well as assist with Breakfast in the classroom. The students are well behaved and making great yearly progress in academics.
My special needs daughter, who is now 10 years old, has been attending this school since kindergarten. We could not ask for a better school. The staff if committed to helping kids reach their full potential. The teachers are hardworking, dedicated, caring and compassionate. The past 2 years have been even better since the old principal retired. The new principal puts academics front and center, providing such help as homework club, after school intervention, and tutoring. She even holds special awards ceremonies for children who have excelled academically, orders special shirts for children who have mastered math facts, and orders special testing pencils. She even has a prize box full of rewards for children who show respectful behavior that she purchases with her own money! She has also fought to make safety a priority by personally holding assemblies to teach children how to be safe on the yard and how to prevent bullying. My daughter has grown so much in the past 6 years and I know it is because of all the support she receives here at this school!
My daughter goes to school there with Mrs. DeLeilo. She is a very resourceful teacher. This school is full of wonderful committed teachers, too bad some teachers don't care. The school environment is safe ande respectful. Administrator is new and I hope it will turn school around and in the process take SPS program as one of them and not an outsider.
Excellent school to work at as teachers are cooperative wih each other and hard working! Parents need to teach their children more about academic responsibilities and respect!
El Sereno is a very good school, teachers, staff and administrators are superb and very supportive. Both my children attended this school on a permit (it was the only school in the immediate-surrounding area that was not on PI). Opportunities for parent involvement is also magnificent. I am very pleased with the education my children received at this school from great teachers!
This is my child's 2nd year of pre school at this school in the State pre school program w/ Miss. Delelio. Her teacher is wonderful she meets all my academic expectations, that I have for my child. I don't know if my child will return for kindergarden. Administration does a poor job and the school doesn't have high test scores.
this school is the best one i went to in my child hood. i appreciate all the teachers that lead me to where i am today.
