I rated it average because my grandson just started this school as a 1st grader. So far, his teacher seems to be on point with teaching and preparing the children to learn age-appropriate skills. I was apprehensive on his first day because he had a substitute teacher. This went on for approximately 3 weeks, where his class had a substitute weekly, until the Vallejo, CA school district finally hired a permanent teacher. She seems to be great with assignments consisting of math, reading comprehension, and overall reading skills. She also conducted a review from Kindergarten for those children who did not quite catch on.
