its true potrero is one of the worst schools in the san diego county, they often make bake sales for supossible field trips, this school has lots of drama between teachers and children, practically all the staff lives in mexico but the principal cover up because she has already received complaints about the issue due to parents complaining because they cannot stay to sleep over in mexico because their children are taken out of that school but they do let teachers kids live in mexico;this school should honestly change all its personal starting from the principal sheryl lugo to all the teachers because the principal also releases private information wich is an illegal act when it is released to create gossip. i honestly recomend you to think twice in putting your children in this school.
Great school, great staff, excellent teachers and awesome PRINCIPAL you go Mrs.Lugo your the best!!! Only sad thing to say is that we need more positive parent involvement. :)
Really bad school staff talks about children with lice and they dont keep childrens documents confidential anyone goes thriugh documants some teachers did not graduate and lunch ladies often serve as substitutes bottom line is theire teachers are the worst teachers in the county bullying teachers to kids rhey do not do anything about bullying because even teachers discriminate children this is a really bad school they should clise it down or change their staff.
I love this school! The staff works hard to enrich the students development.
As you can see for yourself, Potrero is striving to get test scores up and they are accomplishing it! The principal, Barbara Cowling, is fabulous and cares a lot for her school, along with the wonderful teachers there. Potrero has a great afterschool program which is run by the classified employee of the year Mary H. The students there are very respectful and well behaved. .....And its API is booming :)
