My son has been at this school for the second year and frankly, it always seems very disorganized, some of the staff and teachers seem very combative and very much into placing blame more so than helping. On the other hand, there are several teachers who are the exact opposite, very courteous, friendly and eager to help. Because the school is so new, I think it will improve as it get more experienced staff who are more comfortable/knowledgable in their positions.
The school was great until Ms. Monzingo took over. She inspires nothing in the kids. No school spirit, no pride, nothing. What could have been an awesome school, has become kind of a ghetto school from lack of leadership and discipline.
The school has good afterschool programs and various athletic programs. I think the teachers in some cases could do more to help the students with academics and commenting on the students progress.
