Giano Intermediate School1

Giano Intermediate is by one of the worst schools I ever went to because of the negative vibes and immature students who go to the school and they are not challenged to learn. All they care about is their drugs, criminal conduct, fights, and their cliques that they so happen to be involved in. The students also highly are disrespectful to their teachers and do not participate in any work whatsoever. Some teachers also do not take part in their roll, leading to them slacking off and talking nonsense which has held these students futures down. This school really needs to step up to its full potential because I believe they are more than this.
Giano has always been a great school to me. I admit our old Principal that we had was not doing her job. Well our new principal is great. I am so tired of people always saying that Giano is a 'ghetto school' because it is located in a barrio. Well we made California Distinguished School. So I guess we are not so ghetto after all. We proved everyone else wrong. It is a pleasure being part of the staff......
Being a former student, i know that Giano is an OK school, but not great. Our principal, well my opinion is i didn't think she did her job well. The teachers there care about our education alot. now that i'm in highschool, i truly miss the school. its much smaller, but that was the best part for me. If parents plan to send their kids there its a good choice because it won't be a choice to regret
I give this school 100 out of 5 because it's so amazing. It's super clean and has great teachers, programs, and activities. When i first got there, the only person I knew was my neighbor but she introduced me to a lot of her friends. Mostly everyone was really nice and even though there were some fights, there weren't as many as the school that I had come from had. Also, ALL of my classes required you to think. I had Honors and GATE classes to so i had a bit of a challenge with some things. Also, I almost never heard people swear at school. The only people that did were the trouble makers or people that had some how accidentally hit themselves. At this school, I learned a ton of things and actually understood it almost instantly. That's why I give this school such a high score.
I would have given this school 4 stars if it wasn't for the students and the academics. I'm currently a new student at Giano, and my first impression was pretty neat--the school was way cleaner than my previous one, which had gum and bags of Cheetos cluttered everywhere. At first, the students seemed pretty nice--I mean, they were the types who would kindly approach the new student, say hi, and offer to walk you to your next class. But after a few more weeks? Dozens of fights had occurred, all classes (except Algebra I) required absolutely no thinking at all, and I heard 3 times more swearing than I did in my old school. A- for cleanliness, C- for people and academics.
