The school is doing very well for the budget and the limited staff the district allots it. Parental involvement is minimalm but the parents that are involved go above and beyond. The principal is supportive of parents. She has a very tight schedule due to all the cutbacks, but still takes time from her shedule. She is very dedicated and helps to educate and lift parents.
This school, although it looks nice, has a long way to go in addressing fairness, equity, and balance from teachers down to students. This school suffers from low expectations for teachers, students, and staff.
I'm an ex-staff and very concern with some staff at this school.They are rude to the childern and don't know how to talk to them.They are children not adults.So parents talk to your children and if possible try to participate in the school.
I'm the proud parent of a second grade child at Soto Street Elementary. Since Kindergarten my child has attended this school and the results have been astonishingly positive. The teachers have all been motivated, friendly and respectful. However; the play yard staff needs much improvement. They aren't always keeping a close eye on the children and that is my only concern.
