  • My child attended Pinacate Middle School last year and had nothing but problems with the students and teachers alike. Since moving from Orange County, the material that my child had in 7th grade at Pinacate was that of which he had in 5th grade while attending schools in Orange by comparison. The general attitude of MOST students is that neither that of responsibility or self-reliance (i.e. ghetto)

  • I had nothing but incredible problems with this school. I had 2 children enrolled and it was a constant battle. I have elected to do home school it was such a battle. My children were suspended very frequently, for things that should not have even been punishable. One of my children was suspended for 3 days because the teacher accidentally backed up into him and there was physical contact. The same child was suspended for moving a stapler from one side of the teachers desk to the other in the process of utilizing it. Both of my boys are on medication for ADHD and therefor are to be protected by the American's with Disabilities Act; where as they are not to be suspended for anything less than violent behavior, behavior never portrayed by my children. Teachers are in such high demand that they will hire anyone, even those fired from other schools for mental disorders.
