My son is in 2nd grade and thanks to the teachers pushing my son to challenge himself with new things everyday he is an advanced student. He finished 1sr grade at a 3rd grade reading level. Mr. Daily is awesome he knows every student & is a motivator. Mrs. Arancibia to me is the best 1st grade teacher.
Pence is not the school of choice. My three children attend this school and they all complain about the staff, the food, and their classmate. There is lack of respect. They spend on remodeling the school but not on education and making children feel comfortable. Their after school program also on the low end. The staff are kids taking care of kids.
teachers forget the reason why they majored in this field of liberal studies, which means the art of education, Educating the future generation of tomorrow , which is our kids. My son went to this school for almost three years , Kinder garden with Ms. Kinner was great, to bad she retired. She was an excellent teacher. For first grade he was also with another teacher that retired. Mr. Vaca, another great teacher who gave my son an award for student of the year. Then he started second grade with two female teachers sharing the class. Both where ready for retirement, or at least they taught like they should have been. They we terrible with kids. Lots of intimidation went on by them both. I too an a liberal studies majorlist, with a B.A. degree and I tell you, I would never apply to teach for a school who only sees there job as another pay check. They should never forget the reason why they decided to be teachers. To be prepare the future, our kids future as well as our own for when we retire.
Pence has made great strides in the last couple of years, and has always been very dedicated to student safety and academic achievement. We make a great effort in trying to involve all of the community in all of the activities that take place. It seems that the only time parents really show up in-force is when we have spring carnival, or some other FUN activity. It would be nice to have more parents involved in the academic portion of student achievement. It seems that only a small core of parents are truly present on a regular basis. Communication and involvement are the keys to student success. Please help us achieve our academic goals.
this school need veru much improvment,dont know where to start,to pick up our children its a disaster cars are parked every where its a mission just to get through. we are not notified about activities untill the last minute!!!
Pence is a great school. The uniforms are great and keeps the kids from forming their own clicks based on how you dress, how rich your parents are, etc. Everyone is equal at Pence. I would recommend this school to anyone.
