Worse school ever also the worst school district , be prepared for your child things to be stolen on a daily bases, bullies at this school is so bad the school can't get a grip on it, fights on campus in the new norm as well, my son who is called a white boy and worse on daily bases the racial slurs is out of control , my daughter experienced it as well ,and that was 4 years ago.

The security and learning environment is terrible. My kids have seen fights happen right in front of them and no officers were around to break it up. Many of the students are being bullied as a result of poor anti-bully awareness. My son has been bullied in class with accusations of being gay and teachers let it slide. This school is full of delinquents and lazy staff members. Once my son got to Pacheco High, he told me it was a huge difference and that it was an awesome school. I'm glad he is happy to go to school again. Not thanks to the Jr. High.

As a former staff member I can verify the sad state of education. This school offers none of the incentives and programs of schools in other comparable size facilities. Administrators do nothing to support staff and even less to make progress with students. Teachers are swamped with behavior problems. My AVID students excelled because of my dedication. A micro managing principal sealed the deal.

Not a good school! Not a good district! Teachers and staff are more probation officers then they are teachers. No communication or care from staff regarding childrens educational needs. Only communication is when a child is misbehaving. Teachers will not even communicate with parent when grades are in jeapordy. School is not teaching at State Standards. Your children will not receive the education they deserve. School and district need to hire more qualified staff and take charge. The children have more control over staff then staff over children.

This school rocks! Being a former stident that is, all of my kids go there now and are loving it! Most kids never want to go to school but mine are taking full intrest! I suggest this school to all parents of midddle school children.

This school has great leadership and dedicated teachers, however with the location of the school, parents tend to be less involved. Parents commute out of town more in this area and behavioral problems seem to have increased.

Two of my children have atteneded this school. My daughter I pulled out half way through the 8th grade. The staff were not meeting her needs.She was constently getting teased and the counselor told us that this is a life lesson she has to learn how to deal with it. Education wise we had some good teacher and some awful teachers like in most schools. My son is there currently and the staff are working with his learning disablities as best they can. This year I am much more happy with the teachers but I also got to hand pick them. If there was another public school I could put them in I would of. Since my daughters been out she is home schooled and is doing great at Valley Home School Program located in Los Banos.
