I has been in this school for 7 years as a parent and this is a great school for my children's it is a complete bilingual school and the staff is great there is a good communication with the teachers and I feel happy to recommend this school to everybody who wants their children's to be bilingual. When I have any questions or concerns the principal Yolanda Hernandez-Garcia always is open to talk with me and that is an excellent parent to principal communication.

Yo recomiendo está Escuela porque tengo 3 hijos y estado por 10 años ayudando y apoyando como madre de familia y si alguien necesita venir a visitarnos se dará cuenta del ambiente educativoque existe y me atrevó a decir que es una de las escuelas que tienen educación Bilingüe. Los estudiantes salen completamente bilingües. Nuestra escuela esta creciendo tenemos k3- 8 grado.

Antes que nada,quiero aclarar que esta escuela es una o la unica escuela 100% BILLINGUE. Lo escribi con letras mayusculas porque BILLINGUE significa que la enseñanza es 100% en Ingles y 100% español. Porque inscribe a mis hijos en Hayes BILLINGUE? Porque, hace 15 años, cuando Hayes estaba ubicada en el edificio pequeño en la calle 10 y Hayes, mis sobrinos en ese entonces ,tomaban clases ahi y yo tome ineteres en esa escuela por que la enseñanza me atrajo y decicdi que cuando tuviera hijos , los iba a inscriber ahi porque es major llegar a un tour o algun open house para saber que tipo de escuela estas visitando y mi experiencia fue y es que es una escuela que prepara a los estudiantes para que salgan del 8Vo.grado ahora dominando los 2 idiomas Ingles y Español ,ademas de que es una de las escuelas que enseña e instruye para aprender las clase se Ciencias y ofrece esa Feria de Ciencias donde los estudiantes explotan su lado cientifico que talvez ya no exista en alguna otra escuela y mis hijos han crecido mucho en todo el aprendizaje que ofrece esta escuela desde que empezaron en k-4 hasta el 8vo.grado.

The principal Yolanda Hernandez can't think critically in order to apply relevant educational theory. Her discipline in the school is reactionary and inconsistent which results in a general feeling of disrespect in the school. She also bullies and marginalizes the intellectuals on the staff which limits progress and generally creates an all around hostile environment.

When will MPS realize that the principal at this school has caused this school not to succeed and to go down. When will MPS realize that if you have teachers in the classroom who can't speak and write English well that the students won't learn either?

I personally do not like the how the students act in this school. I went to Hayes a couple of years ago and I see how much it has changed. My siblings still attend it there. Most of the students there and really mean and like to bully other kids without the teachers doing anything. I liked the old Hayes better.

I regret having chosen this school for my daughter. She has been in it for three years now. There is much bullying going on, and the teachers do nothing about it. I have complained several times, but I always get the "Yes, we will do something about it." No effort has been put to change that. The teachers simply do not care enough; neither does the principal. I would not recommend this school to ANYONE.
