  • This school's performance is awful, the teachers do NOT care about the children's education, they freely allow bullying. I do not recommend (I have been associated with this school for 10 years).

  • I think the high school is a very bad school. The teachers do not care about the kids, especially if your child has a IEP!

  • As with all public schools in California, schools are second to prison. It should also be noted that their hands are tied by state budgets. The state pays prison guards more than the teachers. A prison guard requires a high school diploma and a teacher requires 6 years of college (4 years for a BA and 2 for the credential)
