The comments below are absolutely correct. The teachers there are miserable and it is because the principal creates an environment of fear and distrust. The children are treated like prisoners and the only thing that matters are the standard test scores at the end of the year. Do your child a favor and pull him/her out asap.
I don't know where to start. This school is one of the worse schools in the district. The teachers are rude and there's no leadership. It all starts from the principal down to the teachers. I seen the teachers being rude to the kids I even confront him and report it to the principal. I had to transfer my kid to Juan Seguin elementary. Seguin is a BIG difference then garcia. I will not recommended garcia. They don't spend time to help your child improve in his/her education.
The staff is so unhappy at this school. Teachers have walked off the job at a rate of once every 2-3 weeks. Unruly behavior by certainn kids is tolerated. Not a good place to be.
