A very poor school. It is like a factory. Principal has had very little experience in the classroom herself and thinks she knows everything. This school is overcrowded and noisy all the time. Kids packed into coatrooms for classes like sardines. a noisy, boisterous environment. No accountability. Teachers who can't even speak English.
This is the worst school to ever send your child to. the principal does not care one bit for the student body nor parent concerns. My son was in their k-4 class which had 34 kids and one teacher. The children were out of control and the teacher had little to no help. Eventually my son started to act up because he seen other kids acting up. The teacher then tried to tell me my son had ADD or ADHD. She tried to send him to the school psychologist and that was my breaking point. I transferred my son to Guadalupe Murguia and now he is doing great! All my son needed was a little extra teacher student time. I spoke openly with the principal about my concerns with the class size and how it affected my son and she didn't even acknowledge the problem. She just nodded her head in agreement but did nothing about the situation. Worst school ever. I feel bad for the children who attend this school.
