I have 4 boys that attended Serna and what a great school! The administration and teachers have done a wonderful job preparing them for high school and beyond. They all get involved with the students in class and through extra-curricular activites. They work hard for kids and all of my boys enjoyed going to school every day. Two are now in college, one in high school and the youngest is in the 7th grade and all their past teachers still express concern for their success. Thank you for being great teachers!
I have a great opinion of this school. My children are doing excellent compared to Hilley, where they used to go. The music and art programs are very motivating to them. And I have nothing but praise for the Dual Language education. They speak, write and read CORRECT spanish and english. The security is great and the discipline program is followed. But as a parent volunteer, I think what the students need most to do well in this or any school is parent involvement in their education, homework and activities. Congratulations to the administration and to all the great teachers. I am glad that I chose this school, and was able to transfer my kids. I don't mind the drive for a great school, and better education!
The school hardly ever gave out homework to the students and the students in 'honors' classes got treated very different. They were the ones that learned more. Teachers would always brag about them. When I got to the high school, I was really behind. I was having trouble in geometry and it was just because they would not let me take an algebra class my 8th grade year. I am very dissapointed in attending that school. It is a school that needs a lot of improvement.
I don't like this school. It doesn't give children the tools to expand like other schools. The school should have more teachers in order to help student get the attention they need. Also, the music programs aren't very good. Many students need more advance classes to progrese as a musician and/or in other program. They should also have bigger fine arts rooms, because there orchestra room is a starndrizes classroom like the ones the math and reading teachers use.
