    My kids are doing great last 3 yrs. The staff and Teacher are very good with the kids. Only thing that I would change is pickup the kids location

    Definately one of the best schools in Bakersfield. Teachers are great. They care about the students are are the highest quality teachers you can expect. The school is new and provides a safe and confident atmosphere for the students. Parents lack manors when driving to or picking up kids from school. 'Some' parents park in red zones block access follow written parking codes and don't allwats show cortesy to fellow drivers. Other than some lame parents from out of district school is the best!
