The actual school is a nice facility; however, the staff do not always work together in an optimum fashion. Some of the attitudes expressed by staff in the middle grades tends to "run the school." This comment is not designed to ridicule staff or the principal. The final concern is to how it affects the well-being of the students. Recently, permanent principal leadership has been less assertive in dealing with some of the teachers. This is unfortunate because this provides the opportunity for teacher conduct to go unchecked. Ultimately, one has to consider, regardless of whether the instruction is on-track, as to how it affects the children. With that being the most important asset, it is necessary to consider the actions of instructional staff. My observations, as a parent, allowed me to see how some of the staff intentionally works against other staff; that is, a lack of associative teamwork. This condition will not go away until it is addressed. It is important that all students, whether low or high achieving, be treated equally and without preconceptions.
I want to congratulate to Mr. Salzman for his excellent professionalism in teaching. Also, for the educational efforts from the principal Mr Sasaki. This school needs more parent involment and educational programs such sports and other extracurricular activities such music dancing with children to make the school more happy.
This school has some excellent teachers. The only disadvantage this school has is lack of parent involvement. Because of this, there is not much support and fun activities or fundraising. Parent involvement is very crucial to children excelling in school and establishing a solid foundation for fun school activities. Parents are encourage to get involve. This is a very diverse school with lots of potential.
