Three of my 4 children attended McPherson. 2 were GATE students and 1 was special needs. All of us spoke English only when we moved to Napa. My children enjoyed McP, had lots of friends from a diversity of backgrounds, and did very well in their studies. I served on the PTA, School Site Council and volunteered in classrooms. There is a contingent in the neighborhood who seem to think McP allows English speakers to suffer in favor of Spanish. I didn't see that. I see a school that has figured out a way to provide full time art, science, PE and technology staff, rather than the itinerant teachers covering the other school in the district. McP showed better improvement scores over some of the more affluent schools last year so they're getting it right.

My daughter has been attending for 3 years. I am having a difficult time. I always pictured myself being involved in her school, PTA, etc. Unfortunately, I am not. I only speak English. The majority of the student's parents speak Spanish. In stead of recognizing that parents of both languages exist, the school, based on the majority, accomodates Spanish speaking parents. I have attempted to attend a PTA meeting and an after school knitting class with my daughter, both were held in Spanish. I am very frustruated.
