I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SCHOOL. THEIR ACADEMICS ARE OUTSTANDING. MY 7 YEAR OLD IS EXCELLING IN 1ST GRADE BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS. HE NOW READS IN BOTH LANGUAGES. I PLACED HIM IN THE BILINGUAL PROGRAM, NOT KNOWING MUCH SPANISH, BUT HE HAS HAD THE BEST TEACHERS AND SUPPORT STAFF. THEIR NEW MATH PROGRAM IS AMAZING, AND I LOVE THE ACCELERATED READER !! MY SON LOVES THEIR MUSIC LESSONS !!THEY HAVE A GREAT CURRICULUM WITH CARING TEACHERS AND PRINCIPAL THAT GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO ENHANCE THE CHILDS EDUCATION. I LOVE THE FIELDTRIPS TO THE SYMPHONY, LIBRARY AMONG MANY OTHERS. I RECCOMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANY PARENT THAT WANTS THEIR CHILDREN TO EXCEL ACADEMICALLY AND SOCIALLY.
The school is sufficient with the educational system. The disiplinary actions taken by the staff is below standards allowing "bullying" in campus. There is also some discriminations and bias actions from a teacher. It is hard to have a good relationship with this teacher due to her authoritative attitude. Parents and teachers should work together for the well-being and development of the students not just by giving negative criticisms. Im not writting this not only for me and my child but also for the other parents who feel the same. P.S. my opinion is solely based on our experience on the 1st Grade audience
The out of classroom discipline is not consistent. Teachers are good, but they can't suspend a student.
This is an outstanding school. The teachers and staff on the whole are very skilled and dedicated to student learning.
The PK English class is great. Mrs. Nava, Mrs. Farias anf Mrs. Reyes are very great teachers!!
The academic rigor has gone down starting in 2007, because of a new direction in the site program. I hope that the new superintendent will fix this.
The school seems to really care about the children who are a part of it. Most of the teachers are bilingual and 88 % of kids too. If your child is bright, though they may be bored
