I have been going to this school since the 6th grade, the kids may be troublesome at times. But still I love this school, teachers are just GREAT. I would recommend this school to anyone. Where can i get an enrollment form for the school?
i have been going to this school ever since kindergarden and now im in eighth grade and an honor student we have improved in our star testing scores the past few years and have enforced no bulling and we have a great school for anyone!!!
This is the worst school! I have been to this horrible school every since I was in kindergarden and I'm sick of it. Ghetto Kids, Horrible yard duties, and more. The teachers are Ok, but there is no leadership in junior high. half the kids in junior high are Under the influence and your kid will not like George komure at all. Ask any Person who subbed for Jr. High, or any student. I urge you as student of this school for so long, do not put your children in this school.
The office staff is rude, unfriendly and generally grouchy. The teachers are over worked and underpaid. The classes are over packed. My daughter was moved from three different kindergarten classes in the first two weeks due to over flow. The office staff is completely ridiculous. I have been treated poorly, talked down to and dismissed. My daughter was left in the hall by an office staffer and was not let into her KINDERGARDEN class for ten minutes. Seriously! A 5 year old child left alone. I urge all parents to consider not putting their children in this school. They will be treated like dollar signs instead of students.
school has really improved over the last few years. Students are doing very well on the state test. No big problems and lots of new activities for the kids
George Y. Komure is a great school, in fact I have been attending this school since Kindergarten. I have recieved a great education since then and now I am a straight A student. The only reason students are getting into so many fights these days is because they're so immature and not because there's anything wrong with George Komure. Most of the children attending this school only recieve terrible grades because they're not paying any attention during class, plus there is nothing wrong with the faculty. Also, I believe it's the parents who have the biggest impact on their children's behavior. George Komure is a wonderful school. I've met a lot of nice people there who don't start fights when they get the chance. And finally, George Y. Komure's STAR test scores have been growing higher and higher than ever before.
There has been no change in this school. The principal has no idea on how to maintain or control the students.This school only has costant fights on and off campas. There cross gurads aren't alert at want happens after school. Teachesrs need to be also alert and paying attention to what is going on in their classrooms. Violence and fighting in classrooms and they only suspend for a few days and it starts all over. Someone or something needs to be done about this befor someone really gets hurt.
My children have been attending Komure since the school opened. I am very pleased with the positive changes that have been occuring the past two years under the leadership of our new principal. Komure has become a wonderful place where learning is the top priority and where every student knows how important they are. I have been very satisfied with all my children's teachers and feel that my children are getting a first class education.
I have two children attending Kumore and am looking for a private school. The staff is unresponsive to schoolplace violence and has lost the respect of the students. The staff is only part of the problem. Most of the parents are uninvolved in the school and are lacking in disciplin themselves. There are, however, so great teachers working hard under the adverse conditions.
This school is not parent friendly. The music department is coming along slowly. Has a good music teacher, but very new. The office staff is ok, but they always seem to be on the defensive whether it is a kid or an adult they are dealing with. The teachers and staff have communication problems. If you have kids in this school you need to put the energy into keeping on top of what is going on inside the school.
This is still a fairly new school so it is growing. As a parent I have seen a big turn around and the problem students are slowly being weeded out or leaving. There is not a lot of parent support for the teachers. The teachers that my child has had have been very helpful, supportive, and well educated. I have great admiration for these teachers that dedicate their lives to teaching our children
Schools located in brand new communities going through growth spurts are always affected. However, I've seen major improvements in this school the past 2.5 years that I've lived here. Parents who are involved and make an effort to be a part of their children's education do very well here.
Although, they do strive to meet all the curriculum objectives which they generally achieve, academic programs are taught to the lowest common denominator. This can be good if your child is struggling or if he/she is ESL. But, do not look for this school to effectively challenge gifted or advanced syudents. Parent involvement is sorely lacking due to the demographics of the area and given that many parents commute to the bay area on a daily basis. Art, sports programs and field trips are minimal. This is partly due to the fact that this is a fairly new school which is struggling to keep up with a quickly growing student population. Given time these programs and extracurricular activities will be better established.
So far, with my special education kindergarten child, I have received excellent communication. The teacher is compassionate and generous with her time. Both of my kids have loved the beginning of their year. My second grader not only enjoys the playground equipment (!) but also the teacher and the other kids in his class. The school is always clean and in good order. Even though obviously overwhelmed, the office staff has truly tried their best to accomodate all of my requests.
Great school and the community is going through a major growth spurt. Once everything gets settled and the community matures, this place going to be even better.
I moved to weston ranch so that my children would have an opportunity to go to a good school. I was very disapointed. Although my childrens teachers have been excelent the people in the office are very rude and unhelpfull. My childrens tracks and schedules have been change without notice to me, and when I asked about it I was treated like I have no right to know about what is going on. I am frustrated and upset with what I have experienced with this school and would not recomend to anybody to send their kids there.
