This is perhaps the worst school you can attend, if you are not Latino. More than 80% of them are Latino. And the kids gang up on non-Latino kid. My kids come home everyday crying. I buy them a book. When they take it to school, it gets taken by the bully. The teachers don't do anything about it saying that my kids should not bring any of their books to school. My kids get kicked or beaten, and I call the school. They offered to meet just merely to avoid a law suit. After the meeting, nothing really changed. The teachers are all white. Instead of caring for the kids, they are more concerned about stepping over the racial controversies. The teachers need to be a little more attentive to what is going on outside the class room. They are the one who should encourage the racial acceptance instead of avoiding the subject. Also close to 90% of them are social economically disadvantaged. If you make a descent money and are in a good position to provide for your child/ren. You don't want to attend this school. It invites obvious jealousy and anger toward your child/ren. My kids are happy to attend school where it is racially more diverse.
This school has shown great improvement and scores have risen dramatically. Parents and teachers are proactive in encouraging the kids and it has shown as test scores across the subjects have increased.
This is a wonderful school. The leadership and teachers have done a great job at making the eduction students receive here top notch. Test scores don't show everything this school has to offer. The teachers really produce quality instruction to meet the students needs. The teachers are highly qualified and some of the best in the district, if not state. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for quality, high level, well rounded education.
This school has been transformed in the last few years. Just a few years ago it had the lowest test scores in the county - now it is above 800. The principals and teachers have worked so hard to reach the students and transorm the culture of the school. The teachers have engaged the students and take complete responsibility for student learning. Amazing!
The teachers at this school work vary hard and they deserve the word 'thank you!' , I have two children and they have a wonderful kindergarten teacher . The school staff is vary helpful . The Principals are both vary good.
I was vary happy that my child attended this school , she had a wonderful teacher who taught students about going green , and how wonderful it is conserve . The Music program is really wonderful , I enjoyed a play called Acorn Maidens this June , wonderful .
