  • The teachers my children had are excellent.Very caring and supportive teachers. On the other hand the (...) does not like to handle conflict with parents. The PTO/PTA is very unorganized you have parents that are that claim they are "cholas" holding these PTO meetings and another parent who harass parents. And dance around the school like they are in. An adult club and are cussing around the students and parents at events that are put on by this PTO.

  • The principal is a neat guy - directing traffic and always friendly; the staff as well. The city offers a free after-school program located on-site where the kids are assisted with their homework, given a snack and then get to play. My daughters enjoyed the vast playground and playing in the monkey bars. They were both considered at the top of their class and the workload was fair. My only complaint is one teacher in particular. To punish students he would make them stand outside in 85 degree weather and make them read a book there for 10 minutes. He also snapped a student's pencil in half after he asked for students to put down their pencils and this one student did not obey. I found this excessive.
