Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
August 09, 2015
The teachers are very effective at this school. They make sure you are paying attention and they care very, very much about their students' education. They make sure everyone gets a chance to share their opinions and answers on the topic so it's equal. I am glad that I had the opportunity to be with these teachers that cared for me and others!

Amount of homework: Just right
August 09, 2015
Students get the right amount of homework and I like that the teachers give a review of what we learned and a part that in the math that reteaches the lesson. The homework teaches the students and myself something new and gives us enough time to do activities after homework.

I feel that this school develops conpassion, caring and so on in their students because the teachers care very much for their students education and also make sure that they are comfortable with their environment.

I enrolled my child in this school early February 2014. We are new in this neighborhood. Therefore, I didn't know much about the schools around here. I had put my child in a different school, in which I had to pull out of because of a very bad experience we had. I thought I had made a good decision, as the school I had chosen was ranked to be a GREAT school....but it turned out to be horrible! So, I came to visit this school and asked for a tour. Mrs. Marin, the principal, gladly gave me a tour herself. She's always available and always on campus with a smile! The office staff's are very nice and I felt welcomed the moment I stepped in the office. We've only been here a few months and I love it! Not to mention that my child's K teacher, Mrs. Steele, is an Amazing teacher! The only thing I don't really like (or maybe I just can't get use to) are the uniforms. In my opinion, I think it's more expensive for us. However, everything else is GREAT! I made a great choice moving my child to this school! I can't wait for next coming year, 2014-2015!!

We don't see much of the principle. It would be nice if students would get to know her. Teachers are great!
