Esta escuela es HORRIBLE. Las necesidades de los estudiantes es lo menos importante para el director Gonzalez que nunca esta en la escuela. Busque otra escuela mejor, porque aquí lo único que le importa al director es su título. Este señor no está capacitado para ser el líder de esta escuela.

The NEW principal Mr. Gonzalez is ruining this school. The teachers he hired are incompetent and do not care about kids. He has uncertified teachers in classrooms and that is illegal. He also has no clue how to support teachers and lies ALL the time. The discipline on this campus is horrible and he doesn't do anything about it. This is only a MAGNET campus on paper. The quality of education is pathetic and the kids are getting a horrible education at this school. Patterson needs a principal that knows how to put kids first. This is the worst elementary school.

Bad place to send your kids. All they care about is getting good scores so they look good. They could care less if children are taken care of or happy. Teachers yell at kids and the principal backs them up because all he wants it to be liked. He does not care about doing the right thing. Take your kids somewhere else. This place is TOXIC and BROKEN.

I would not recommend working at this school. Leadership is in the process of being replaced. Teacher turn over is high...that says it all!!!

Agree with the other parent. Beautiful school but has VERY high teacher turnover due to a VERY bad principal there. She treats teachers very bad and retaliates when they speak up.

Beautiful building with poor leadership. There is a high turn over on teachers. Many teachers leave at the end of the school year but some leave during the school year. This leaves the students to suffer until a new teacher is put in the classroom. Teachers and staff are friendly. Discipline is also an area of concern.

I attended this school from 87 to 89. Best school experience ever! Wish i could find some of my old friends and teachers from my time there! Mrs. Webber and Mr. Thornhill were my favorite teachers.

I am a parent whose children attended Patterson in the 50's, 60's and 70's. With an exemplary rating and a new building nearing completion, it's still a great school in a great neighborhood.
