They are not treated bad. Your info has no merit and seems to me you are just ignorant how it works! If you were a parent who really cared enough to be involved, like others who did attend you would have taken 10 minutes to fill out the form required to have your child be in the program. Instead of insulting and assuming you never even attended! Well that is if there grades / GPA met the standards we worked to be in there it wasn't handed to use it was purely strong academics.

This school is a great school if you are a part of the Magnet program. Otherwise, students are not treaed well at all. Those who are not a part of the magnet program are treated as second class citizens while those that are in the program are provided with dance, drama and film courses. The system the school implements seems unjust.

Well that lady at the bottom is rong because any child would get crazy in any school. This school Pacoima Middle School is a great school. Im a student there.What I could say is that Im really suprise how strict this school is cause of the deans and the new princibal . Every one should trust this school. Trust it and its nice. So far Im getting straight A's by the teaching of some of the new teachers. And inpressed me how magnet is cause u get in to drama classes and other kinds of stuff!

My daughter has been in the Performing Arts Magnet for 3 years. I had my misgivings because of the location of the school, but many people I knew recommended this school as opposed to Mount Gleason (my neighborhood school). It was the best move we made. My daughter objected at first ('I want to go with my friends!'), but I told her to try it and could transfer if she didn't like it. She is so happy we encouraged her to go to Pacoima. The neighborhood is what it is; it is low income, but it is mostly single family homes. The school itself is on a cul-de-sac and has been no problem for us. She is part of Musical Theater and loves it. All the magnet classes are GREAT and you will be impressed. We have enjoyed our experience there.

I am now in high school and can say I really learned a lot from Pacoima. I was not apart of the resident program but was in the Performing Arts Magnet and the Musical Theater Program really changed my life. I would absolutely recommend it, even if it's not in the best neighborhood because you really become a family in that magnet!

i am a graduating student from p.m.s. my experiences at Pacoima were very interesting. it was kind of difficult for me to grasp a subject because i have adhd. the teachers there were so amazing and nice. they helped me with certain things i didn't quite understand and i improved tremendously! i was also in the performing arts magnet. you see i have always loved to sing! so i was in musical theater. i had tons of fun learning the dances and the songs. i did however have slight problems with some students and the teacher. but my experience overall was great! i will miss the school very much and for the parents there is something called p.t.a. (parent teacher association) this is for all you parents that want to be involved. trust me parents you and your child will love this school and have a blast with it!

I am a parent there and had my daughter in that school. I honestly didn't like that school at all. There is also no parent involment in that school. The dean is totally not strict. The people there look like they don't even are about the kids. I just ended up moving her to portola middle school. I even had to move from my house. I rather have a crazy day moving than have a crazy daughter.
