  • Parents beware! I gave this school a shot, considering I really didn't have any other options for public education in San Pedro. I regret the day that I walked in there.

    From the very first week, there were several problems with gang members, staff absolutely had NO clue on how to handle these kids, and Teachers are so burnt out that they don't even care anymore!

    I have 3 recorded videos of Teachers cussing at the students, calling them losers, and telling them to shut up or get out...these are OUR teachers, that we trust OUR kids with, really?

    The bullying at this school is out of control and down right dangerous. People from San Pedro are just too afraid to tell the truth, because it's Pedro, you know...the best darn place in the world to live...again, really?

    All I can say, is be careful...find another option if you can. I opted for homeschooling, maybe not the absolute easiest thing in the world to do, but at least I know if there is going to be any cussing, it will be from his own MOM!
