  • Too much pressure and change on the teachers. If you don't speak spanish you have to learn. Just think about it. Almost each and every child there speaks spanish. Look at how much work/time is invested in just teaching them.And that is one BIG change.

    From my many dealings with staff I've come to realize that the school as a whole is poorly run. From the top to the bottom.

    My kids are there, but I stay on top every little thing. Which reminds me.

    No one seems to invest any time in making sure the "all" the kids are comfortable. Look at the percentage of Mexican verses Blacks. Has anyone looked into how the minority is handling the situation ? Example : My daughter is always telling me stories of how the Spanish kids will speak to each other in spanish even though they speak perfect english. And of course she starts to stress over not knowing if they were talking about her or not.

    The school has mayjor flaws in my opinion, and it'll be years before they can be corrected.
