My brothers first grade teacher was definitely the best teacher in the county and should be top ranked in the state. The school has a bad reputation for not being up to par with comparable schools but I must say my brother, while he attended there excelled in areas he is now struggling with in a top rated school in another state. He has a vocabulary equal to that of a high school student or even early college year student. Now that he has been attending a new school..which is higher ranked and rated to be "excellence in your child's learning" his grades have dropped, he has little teacher to student involvement and nearly failed this year. While Tracy Elementary may not be the best school, it definitely has some great teachers and with some minor improvements I feel that they could greatly improve the overall ranking they currently have. One of the biggest problem areas is just simply parent involvement, if the parent doesn't know what their child should be doing at home, and how they are doing in class they can't help their child improve. I think there should be regular parent teacher meetings and newsletters sent home to keep parents informed on everything happening in the school

I have been to inner city schools that had better discipline, teachers and parent involvement. CHAOS!
