My school is Gompers preparatory academy and I am deeply happy of being in this school, where it is "serious, fun, but serious"
I am a parent with two students here at Gompers Preparatory, and I am very pleased with this school. What I appreciate most is the safe, family atmosphere the school works hard to convey through its curriculum, activities and parent involvement. I particularly appreciate the fact that the school has a no excuses policy. We are all accountable for our children's education; parents, teachers, and especially the kids. And as a community member, it is important to me to have teachers and staff members that care for the kids from our area. Gompers offers that, along with challenging and interesting classes. The Director knows the kids, and routinely asks them about what they've learned. The kids have fun there. My son is graduating this year, and he has had great support from his teachers, and counselors. I could not be happier that I sent my kids to this school. It has allowed them to grow and mature without being misjudged.
I am currently a student at Gompers Preparatory Academy and can say with absolutely NO doubt that this is the BEST school in San Diego! I have been here since sixth grade and i am now in eighth grade so therefore I've been here a total of 3 years now. All I can say is that without Director we would not have scored OVER 88% in our CST's so if ANYONE says our school is how it was 7 years ago, all i have to say is your WRONG!!!!!
This is truly a span school. The students have been lumped together in some classes from 6-12. The facilities are so out dated,because they spend all of their money on out of the classroom staff. The campus set up is dangerous with uncontrolled passing periods. They have new teachers all the time, because so many of them leave or are let go. Little to no job security(no union representation). They have outlandish demands and little support to make it happen. If you are desperate for a paycheck teach here if you have any other options I would take them.
This is the best school that iv'e been to, i have been here since 7th grade and i am going to graduate on June 23 on 2012. The director and teachers are fantastic, we are all a family.
