This school only has a handful of good teachers- the rest is all politics, even down to student awards. Special student awards went to students who were daughters and grand sons of teachers this year. Al lot of favoritism is shown as well as lying and harassment tolerated. School is in severe need of good male leadership. The one strong male who was present is being moved to another school to serve as vice principal. This is the school that should have been closed instead of Washington Elementary, as that was the better school.

Their is no otganization. The staff at this school has a major attitude and are rude. My niece is coming home crying in tears everyday from class. Her teacher is mean, too old and selfish to be teaching PK plus she is never in class with the kids.

Lots of crying, whiny teachers on power trips who need to retire or find another profession. Good modeling for students sorely missing. My child is now in the charter school and doing fine.

The adminstrators, teachers and the President of the School Board Jesse Gomez are very unprofessional. They allowed my nephew to release from school unknowing to me and put him in harms way. My family is not getting any cooperation from the school or the school district on trying to resolve this matter instead my nephew and sister is being mistreated due to lack of professionalism of Carrie Gosch school and the administrators. The situation is totally frustrating and unacceptable. I plan to pursue to the highest level possible.

The Adminstrators and teachers at this school it totally unprofessional. My 5 year old grandson was released from school to an unknown person and put in harms way and the school is not taking responsible for their neglience. Because I expressed concern and reported the incident my grandson and daughter is being mistreated.

One of my biggest concerns with this school is the lack of any music, art, and sports programs. I feel all students need to be allowed 'downtime' during the school day and should have the availability of a gym or sports program in the school. There are also no afterschool sport programs here. Parent involvement seems to be lacking also. When there are meetings held the parent turnout is poor. Some of this might be due to working parents who can't attend. The posted test scores show that the academics are lacking. There are no real school based tutoring sessions that I am aware of.
