Having just graduated from this school i would like to say that the kids that are in the english/math block classes are there because they need to be there (those are the only block classes no history block), most of the teachers there care about the students' education and try to help them advance academically, the school is undergoing a change bu it's not the fault of the staff if there is someone at fault it's the students and the parents
I suggest to any parent thinking about putting their children in this school (and district) to not do it. This district does not allow children to grow. They only focus on math and english, the other subjects to them do not matter. Some students that are in the 'math/science' or 'english/history' block do not get science nor history. Please reconsider and go to Reedley or Fowler... keep the well being of your child in mind.
The principle in the school is always trying to get children to get involved in the Ivy League program, which in my opinion, doesn't provide the children with the adequate skills to become successful in an Ivy League College. Teachers are great.
