In comment to the student who didn't get an A in debate- my son had debate for two years and had the best time. He learned to think, to analyze, and yes to perform. Ms. Clapper encouraged him to think abstractly, to find the humor in things, and most importantly, to think for himself. He learned skills in Debate that he never learned before. Because of Debate, he is assertive, strong-minded, and has a high self-esteem. Sometimes it takes a director and not just a teacher.

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

To the debate comment - sometimes it takes a great director to teach a child. My son had Ms. Clapper for two years in Debate and the skills that he learned were incredible. He learned to analyze, communicate, think of his feet, and to see both sides of an argument. That's not easy to do with 7-8 graders.

Amount of homework: Too much

My son had way too much homework in math and it just seemed to be busy work. Ms. Nickel assigns almost two hours a night.

My son enrolled this year and did good except for one class. Debate, his teacher, Peggy Clapper seems more like a movie director than a teacher. Its hard to trust my son is in good hands. Besides that he is doing great and getting As in other classes. I still expect more. It only takes one teacher to mess up your future.

I think accusing people such as this person who states to claim how this School lost an enture school file are rather funny. You people always enjoy laying the blame onto someone else. Grow up and stop blaming others for your wrongs. Nobody owes you nothing. This is an alright school a little bit over welming on students of the non white heritage. If other cultures. Chooses to be disruptive and or obnoxious then the facility needa to eliminate the disturbance. People at school are there to learn , not to be distracted by an annoyance. Some people like myself do infact care about education. Education and educated people excell in this world.

My son came to Einstein from an elementary GATE program. He has enjoyed challenging and engaging classes while at Einstein with many exceptional teachers including Ms. Nickel in the math department, Ms. Leas in history, Mrs. Cacamo in science, Mr. Combrink in language arts, Mrs. Zimny in band and Mr. Blockman in PE. I appreciate how quickly teachers respond to email and that I have never once been worried about my child's safety while at this school. High marks for the dedicated Einstein staff!!

My son attends this school and I am very dissatisfied with it. Prior to attending Einstein my son was an honor roll student and still was for the first part of the year in middle school. However, after he became ill with the flu and was out for 2 weeks, everything went down hill. He was not given proper amount of time to make up his work. The teachers act as though they do not have a real interest in the students but moreso with covering for each other with these ridiculous alliances. It is no wonder this school's API has been low for several years. Trust me it's not the students, every child is capable of learning. The Sacramento School District needs ALOT of help it is failing our kids.

Albert Einstein is a neighborhood school that several years ago was not high acheiving, but in recent years has accomplished a huge turnaround and become a high acheiving school. They have developed an atmosphere where students want to excel and improved the community spirit and pride in their school.

I enrolled my daughter in this school over one of the breaks to ensure that she would have a smooth transition from her previous school. It was a nightmare. Despite my preplanning, she sat in the office for about an hour, got a temporary schedule, and went to classes in which the teachers were not even aware they had a new student. Communication was almost non-existent. I would not reccommend this school for a child who is shy. It might be fine for a child who is more out-going and likely to insist that the teacher tell them what is required of them.

I think this school is great. My algebra teacher Mrs.Nickle is the best Math teacher ever! She spends alot of time helping us students on homework and the things we dont get. Mr.Brifman is also a great teacher because he challenges us and even though what we are learning is hard to understand he helps us Just like all the other and great teacher! Also Einstein has this great Media Production whice I love! Mrs.Osteen is the nicest .

My son started 7th grade this year. I was very impressed with his curriculum. The only class that I did not agree with for him was Band. He loses books, backpacks, coats and I could not agree to sign a form that I would pay $800 for an instrument if he lost it.

My child had a chance to attend last year and will again attend this school year. I do not believe this school to be exeptionally violent, although this school is in great need of tranportation revamping as well as more teacher parent relations. It seemed to be extremely hard to contact teachers when educational needs were an issue. Thank you for your time. And when I met the principle she was extremely unfriendly towards me, as a parent concerened with my childs new school.

After reading the first response, I am astounded! I'm writing so that others may review another's opinion. I have helped out with this school and have seen first-hand how the principal is. This principal is fantastic. I am the proud parent of a National Junior Honor Society student - - and I will mention this is a program that this principal is starting - - It is the first for Albert Einstein. My child has excelled at this school, and I am thankful. Check it out for yourself - - You'll be impressed. The school cannot control people.

This is truely a violent school, and has become worse over the past two years. It traditionally has had rough students, but strong teachers and a great principal. Unfortunately the great principal left for Rosemont High and so are many of the best teachers. What you are left with is the rough students. Only 21% of the population reads at grade level. Additionally, test scores have gone down, although the API has gone up. This leads me to believe that the API was artificially pumped up through survey responses, not supsending students who commit violent acts, etc. Many top students are chosing Open enrollment to attend other public schools or private schools. I am doing the same.
