Laguna Vista Elementary School 1

Really tried to give this school the benefit of the doubt when we moved here. 2nd grade went well my child had an amazing teacher Mrs. Sasaki, but it when downhill from there. Looking at the great schools rating I wasn't expecting amazing performance academically and have always focused on learning at home. But I did expect a certain level of safety. My son is your average kid, never has had difficulty making friends or anything. He was ruthlessly bullied at this school and no one cared. He was bullied to the extent where he thought about self harm as a fourth grader and it was heartbreaking. He felt helpless and alone, he stop telling on the kids who where physically harming him because nothing was getting done and tried to take matters into his own hands. He came home with bruises on his ribs from a gang of children kicking him on the playground. After attending counseling sessions and discovered what really had been going on we transferred him schools mid year and he has thrived ever since. Please be weary of your children going here. Mine is not the first and will not be the last to leave this school due to complete lack of supervision and care. Safety of children should be any schools top priority, it is not at Laguna Vista.

There are some teachers who have more skillets than others. It wouldn't be fair to say all teachers are not good however there is no quality control and teachers that lack skillets are reported to be amazing, when in fact they need more training.

No awareness activities, for SPED students. No school wide positive behavior support interventions, to teach students to accept others. Students with special needs not encouraged to interact with their "typical peers" during lunch; rather, left at a separate table, in the back of the cafeteria, isolated.

SPED teacher did not treat students in her class fairly. Rather, showed favoritism and neglected the needs of certain students, which does not teach her students to treat others fairly.

Special education department is awful. Superintendent does not support the families of students with special education and the team does not accurately inform families of what services are offered. Professionals are defensive and work non-collboratively

We have been at Laguna Vista for a couple of years and are very unhappy with what the kids are experiencing. A lot of bullying, "fighting clubs" as my kids call them, unmanageable class sizes, and it is a hit or miss with the teachers. We are trying to get into another school district.

If a child is being bullied either in the classroom , on the playground or on the school bus... teachers seem to be nonchalant and don't want to be bothered with it unless an upset parent contacts the school about it. So many kids get away with being bullies.

Students need to be taught according to their grade level not on the pace of the students attending the class. My daughter was bored of her class because everything was too easy for her.

My daughter has attended Laguna Vista for 1st and 2nd grade. It is a hit or miss with these teachers. For 1st grade she had a great teacher that she actually learned from, but her 2nd grade teacher seemed like he was repeating 1st grade level work all year. I feel my daughter is behind a year and find myself playing catch up buying material to teach her what she should have learned!

My 2nd grader would come home with one page of homework. She should be getting more homework at this age.
