I My daughter enrolled at this school when she was in K and she had a great teacher. once she went to 1st it was all over the teacher didn't care she would talk to the kids in English and Spanish when it was only a ENGLISH SPEAKING CLASS! We moved to Ontario and she finished her year at mountain view (great school) when I talked to school they said joseph a Gascon had her under being a Spanish speaker ? she totally wasn't I had to keep her back due to the fact that Joseph A Gascon elementary didn't teach her what she needed to be taught, they don't even have a reading program at that school Reading is very important in a childs life and if you care than don't send your child here!

The principal or the district should do something about it.It's over crowd and the students with a permit. They should remain in their home school.

It's an over populated school. My child has been moved to several different classes in the same year. I understand there are challenges, but many seem to be not planned out to have positive results. I do see them trying, but I don't know if it's enough at this point.
