The staff at this school truly care about the students success. They have many challenges in the immediately community but handle it well.
My daughter has been there for three years, and thus far i have had no complaints with safty issues, all the teachers are very friendly. There afterschool program teachers are very good with her and seem to have a personal relationship whith all the students. I in the beining had wanted her to go elswhere because of the schools grading and the fact that she is a minority in all her classes being caucasion, but overall she has advanced in her learning which is the most important thing. One thing that is frustrating to attend school events and announcements is that they are twice as long and hard to hear because there is always a translator speaking along with someone else so all ethnics can understand. My daughter loves it there.
Golden Terrace is a wonderful school ,my children have been going there for 3 years , they have a good system to keep the kids safe ,they watch over them ,they have very educated teachers ,and principals ,there just an over all good school and if my family diden't move ,my children will still to this day be going to gte
My daughter is in 2nd grade at GTE, and been there since kindergarten. For the most part I can not complain about this school, I feel academically they are a good school and definatly challenge my daughter to do well. However, I am not impressed with the issues I have had with the office and the support staff that works in the office.
This school is a poorly performing school for the last 3 out of 4 years. It has failed 2 years in a row under No Child Left Behind. It has some great teachers, they just face many daunting tasks, including teaching English to kids that come in not knowing how to speak it.
I personally don't care for this school. The kids are at a great risk of not reaching their full potential in this environment because a large majority of the teachers just aren't with it.
