  • THIS SCHOOL IS UNPROFESSIONAL OVERALL! AS STAFF AS WELL! THEY TREATED EVERYONE AND I MEAN EVERYONE UNEQUALLY AS STUDENTS IN A NON LEARNING ENVIRONMENT! AS FAR AS THE TEACHERS GO, THEY ARE SOME OF THE MOST IRRESPONSIBLE TEACHERS ANYONE COULD ASK FOR. SHE TREATED HER STUDENTS AS IF THEY WERE HER FRIENDS. SHE SHOWED EXTREME FAVORITISM. I'VE WITNESSED IT MYSELF BEING A FORMER STUDENT. FOR EXAMPLE SHE TOOK MY CELL PHONE AWAY, (YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE DURING CLASS TIME) AS I KNEW WHAT I DID WAS WRONG, STUDENTS APPROACHED ME SAYING SHE TOOK ANOTHER PHONE AWAY FROM ANOTHER STUDENT (NOT BEING THE FIRST TIME FOR EITHER OF US) AND GAVE IT BACK TO THE STUDENT RIGHT AFTER CLASS! I, AS WELL AS OTHERS WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW PORTOLA MIDDLE SCHOOL IS NOT A WORKING ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR CHILDREN! THINGS NEED TO CHANGE IN THAT SCHOOL OR SOMETHING WILL BE SENT TO THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION!
