Both of my daughters attended Amistad in the KOG (gifted) program. My oldest is now in middle school and the younger one is currently in 4th grade. I have volunteered quite a bit at the school and can say that the principal, teachers and staff all seem very committed to a good education and school experience for ALL of the students. If my daughters had not been in the gifted program, they would have attended Sunset View Elementary, and in fact, they each attended there for one year prior to being accepted into KOG. While Sunset View is a good school, I must say that the gifted program offered so much more that there is no comparison. It was simply a much better fit. I agree that any mediocre scores are a result of transient populations and language barriers.
