Someone forwarded me this chance to review this school, I agree with most of the reviewers this is very friendly family like school, this may not be the best school with tons of facilities but we still have lot of sweet memories with it. God bless!!!
The professionalism and the human quality of the teachers make the difference in this school. Unfortunately, just the Principal have changed many times, for some reason. We think we won't find better teachers with humillity, commitment and understanding that the PHE's teachers. Teachers also do their best under any circunstances, like the current economy that affects the education in many ways. Thank you PHE!
Potrero Heights is an incredibly ethnically diverse school, which only adds to the academic standards of this institution. It's small enough to feel like family, and all the extra activities throughout the year are a major plus. PTA is very active and handles many of the major events. Teachers have high standards and are consistent in their academic rigor. Excellent school!
In the sense of an elementary school, Poterro Heights provides a demanding education for its chilrdren including safety, creativity that enhance the power and strength of children to succeed their education
Potrero Heights does continue rating one of the highest schools in Montebello, but teachers at this school need to stay current with educational research and best teaching practices. Jill Rojas, the new principal is bringing in new ideas to the school. It was about time potrero heights implemented new ideas not just with teachers, student discipline, but with the school as a whole. A great example, she has given daycare their own classroom. I hope to see more positive change,and teachers trying out new strategies in the delivery of their instruction. As new leadership is being implemented, let's celebrate positive change because overall all of our elementary's API continue to increase.
