No matter where you go in America, good schools are where the good parents are. I read some of these inarticulate reviews and confirm to myself that the problem some of you are having is not at the school. It's at home. This school is surrounded by good parents. The teachers are very responsive to parents as is the administration. It is certainly not a new of fancy school, but it is a very good school. The dress policy is good for those of you that want to equalize everyone, but they still record a GPA. The GPA is not exclusionary, however. Everyone has the opportunity to do well.
I went to LPMS in the year 1963/1964, I would like to know if i could get a copy of the year book from this school??
WORST SCHOOL EVER! My Child Came from a hometown K-8 School and we moved into the district of LPMS. Well every since my son started no one accepted him. He still to this day doesn't have a true friend. I've walked around campus before without him knowing I was there and i couldn't believe how much "Inappropriate Language" & " Criminal Activity" was being talked about! I was so surprised! The only thing good about this school is the Teachers!
overall i say pasteur is a great school the principals have great dicipline over the children and are firmly punished when not obeying. the ackedemic programs are fabulous they have five different levels of learning my son has not been in everysingle one matter fact only one... he reads good books in my opinion and is always bringing home homework no matter what it is truley in fact helpful to children. and the teachers are friendly but do not have much contact with the parents... not at all actually... the principals do call if in trouble or problems in class and find a good solution to both the students problem and the teachers problem the parents are frequently excluded from the equation but that is the only down side PAsteue IS AN AMAZING SCHOOL PLEASE HAVE YOUR CHILD GO THERE HE WILL GET THE BEST EDUCATION IN CALIFORNIA thank you
I have mixed emotions about the school. Ms. Feldman is the absolute best. I would not have had my child stay if it were not for her. However, my child was threatened and they admitted they could not adequately protect my child. Their office is staff is the worst I have ever encountered. They are bitter and rude to students. The way that a few of the teacher's speak to the student's really upsets me. So take it what it's worth, unless you have a perfect student who fit's into their perfect box, don't enroll your student into this hostile learning environment. I wish I had other options available for my student, I would not have had him subject to the horrible treatment. Mr. Dolan (VP) did an awesome job, Mrs. Deal (principal) you can learn a lot from him!!! She is not as professional and friendly behind closed doors!
I think that overall this is a great school, no school is without shortcomings but Pasteur seems to address any issues I've had in a timely & courteous manner. Mr Dolan follows through with what he says until there is a resolution. My son was below grade level in almost every subject the last couple of years in elementary school, he made both the academic & citizenship honor roll every quarter this year.
This school is disappointing. Some of the teachers don't care about the academic success of the students. They don't want the parents to be involved. After many attempts with teachers to come up with a plan to help my child, the responses were never direct answers to my questions nothing was ever addressed or handled. They have these kids for two years then there gone is the feeling I get. There is not anything invested in them. With the exception of Mr. Pryor, he is a great teacher that knows where his students are academically and is a great educator.
I m very dissatisfied with the school. My kids are falling behind academically in a school that is falling behind. I can wait to take then out of the whole. My experiences with the teachers and the principal had not been good.
Clean campus, lots of activities, good security and good discipline. I like a school that tries to prepare students for the next level by giving them homework and assignments that extend over a few weeks. I also liked that it is a uniform school.
This school is highly appropriat for our children to go to. It is a great school. The teachers are wonderful.
It is a good school with healthy lunches, nice teachers, and tight, safe, security! I like the school even if homework is a big load and most of the students aren't very friendly. The staff do their best to keep it a safe environment. overall, I'd give it a five!
I found Pasteur Middle School to be the absolute worst. They provide no support for special needs children and they will adamantly deny you your educational rights.
My son went to Pasteur until recently. I feel that the administration of the campus is not done properly. I was not informed in a timely manner of his difficulties. And because of this, he felt as though he could get away with anything. Had the the administration properly informed us of even minor difficulties, we could have intervened rather than finding out at the last minute, when it was really too late to correct the problem. I am not saying that my son is without errors, however to have parental involvement with challenging students greatly improves their sucesses. I will say, however, that Pasteur has some outstanding teachers whose efforts show with the students. Mrs. Gervin is fantastic.
