    I did not like this school at all. We enrolled our English speaking child to this school for kindergarten but class was taught mainly in Spanish. We had too many issues with the teachers (classroom had 3 teachers in a two week period) and principal. Older kids would not let the younger kids enter the restrooms and eventhough we advised the principal and nothing was done about it. Administration is the worst.

    I hated this school. It is very one sided. It was a horrible expeience for my student. This school needs to set in place some sort of assembly for interacial students coming into this area.

    This is a great school my kids are doing very well here. I think it's the teachers and there teaching techniques. The teachers really take the time with the kids. I really recommend it.

    IT is one of the greatest schools in california. It should be a blue ribbon school. The teachers are pacient and nice and DO CARE about their students. I'm glad that my kids studied there.
