I wish this school was better. I moved my kids from Turner which was an excellent school. This school has no AR testing. And I don't think they challenge the students enough. Also front office lady is rude. I would have never moved them if I would known this school was going to be like this. It just seems like they don't care.

I've really enjoyed all the staff. And most importantly my daughter is doing good and she enjoys being apart of the school.

I think this is one of the best schools in pasadena. The teachers realy care about their students for the reason that if somthing is wrong with your kids like not learning somthing write they will let you know right away and try to fix the problem and make it better for them. I have three children in that school and I am happy with the teachers
