I cannot wait until this year is over so I can switch my kids school. The teachers are great!!!! The office clerks are rude! I do not know what it is with all these office clerks being rude to people. Too much bullying and kids doing bad things! The teachers is the only great thing they have!
I am a teacher at central elementary in national city and am overwhelmed by the awesome people, programs, and practices in place here. Since the administration at the school changed in august 2004, things have been improving all over the place. Students and families are seeing how by working together, respectfully, and patiently - we can make not just academic, but social changes, as well. The school is filled with intelligent, caring, and dedicated people - students, parents, and teachers alike. National city sometimes gets a bad rap, that it's in a 'bad' part of town. Well, I would just like to say that this school has more going for it than other 'good' schools I've worked at that are in 'better' neighborhoods and when I have my own children - they will come to school at central because they will get to, it's that awesome of a place!
