Buena relaci n entre padres y profesores. El ambiente con el personal de la escuela en general es muy calido y siempre le dan a los padres la confianza de preguntar cualquier inquietud. Mi hija es una de las mejores en su clase y los que me hace sentir muy pero muy bien es que todos saben su nombre y cuando me ven siempre me felicitan por el desempe o de ella...eso me gusta!
I don't think there is a school in Los Angeles where teacher morale is higher.
My daughters have been attending this school since Kinder and it has been Great! It is definitely about the kids all the way. They always take that extra step to get your kids the help they need, if any. Coaches in the after school program really encourage my girls to get involved with clubs or sports. The school is kept very clean and my daughters are very happy. My four star for the teacher quality is for one teacher in particular whom both my daughters have had. She doesn't seem happy to work here at all and that is very clear based on the complaints I've received from both my daughters. Other than that I am very happy with this school and my third child will be enrolled in this school as well.
I am a teacher at Pacoima Charter School and see first hand the positive impact that the school culture has on its students. The faculty and staff work together to provide the best possible standards based instruction to the students. The school is beautiful inside and out. The students are proud of how their school has been transformed and the way instruction has transformed them into life-long learners. The drive to transform the student population into literate, responsible, and respecful individuals is shared by all of the school's employees, parents, and community supporters. All of these stakeholders are making sure that academic gains be the most important outcomes at this school.
Pacoima Charter has been a wonderful place for my children to attend. They have been treated with dignity and the teachers and staff have gone above and beyond to make sure the needs of my children have been met both academically and emotionally. I removed my children from Pacoima and placed them in a magnet school, much to my dismay, the quality of that magnet school did not meet our expectations. My children became emotionally detached from learning and socializing. Now I have brought them back to Pacoima, they are much happier. They cant wait to get ready in the morning, and come home excited to share their daily experiences. They homework they receive is more challenging, the delivery of instruction is awesome (observed). My children are elated. I asked them why they feel that way....."I feel like it is my family there, no one is mean and they really care."
As an employee, I can attest to the gains and achievements of this school. We have a variety of resources for our students, parents and staff. We have forged partnerships with prestigious universities and community agencies. Our library is beautiful. Our landscaping is lush and green. Our scores increase year after year. We care about our students very much and are very responsive to our parents. We have a wonderful team of teachers,
I think this school is improving based on previous years, however we as parents need to do more, getting involved more and helping teachers accomplish their goal, as we both share the task of educating kids for a better future, teachers are great Miss battams, Mrs Garcia just to mention a couple of them. over all as long as this school is improving year after year we are in the right direction.
they are doing amazing things with a large student population and kids that are disadvantaged.
everything they do is for student achievement. Students scores rise every year. it is a beautiful school.
Pacoima is vibrant, rich in school culture, and is excellent in providing children access to success.
Pacoima Charter School staff are hard-working in all they do. Kudos to ALL certificated staff - for helping the children learn and that is the reason why the scores are going up. Great job ! ! !
Great School to work for!!!!! Teachers friendly,Principal awesome, students always ready to learn.
Everything that is done at Pacoima Charter is for the KIDS! You don't find that at many schools.
PCS continues to improve every year. There are so many opportunities for learning and enrichment for the students here.
I love Pacoima Charter School because all the teachers care about their students. They do plan and deliver their lessons in a oustanding manner. I am very please to see how much my child have learned his second grade skills in less than 2 months that he has been attending Pacoima Charter School.
I worked at Pacoima Charter School. I know that under the leadership of Sylvia Fajardo, this school continues to improve in every imaginable way. The teachers, TA's, Coordinators, Office Staff and other support personnel all work above and beyond their assignments in the benefit of the students. Most take countless of hours worth of work home just to make the kids' experience all that much greater. I loved the kids when I was there. They have a human quality that I haven't found anywhere else and I feel the attitude and culture of the staff and the school in general has a lot to do with the kids' character and attitude towards school and their own education. Pacoima Elementary will forever be the great love of my work life.
The school is very clean the teachers are very pleasant the students are all great. I m very happy that my child has had such a great experience at such early age in his life, it is very important that our children feel safe and happy in their surroundings.
All the teachers are wonderfull( mr urqueta, mrs.schoenburg) couldnt have come at a better time.it is so amazing how they get involved with there children.with out these teachers and other staffmembers at this school it wouldnt be anything.
This is a great school. Their scores continue to increase. There are many programs for school that include science, art and music. Students wear uniforms and there is a large number of parent involvement.
Great school. Turn around since they went Charter. Many more computers. Children are learning. Parents are happy. School looks nice and neat. Charter for this school was a positive note!
