    my children are comming from the Alhambra Unified school district and just started 5th 3rd and kindergarden I was supprized that my 3rd grader was reciving 1st grade work and my 5th grader is reciving 3rd grade work that in less than 10 minuts there done with all there homework. my kindergarden teacher never gets up to interact with the kids only her assistant give the parents homework also so that the teacher can teach the school needs more testing and higher standers im thinking about commuting back to Alhambra School District so that my children can have a chance in life and in better schools the children need better resources for all schools its a shame that the school dosent have better work ethics and is too easy. give the kids a real chalange. just because we live in a so called getto that has a bad reputation we need to show the rest of the world that Compton is SMART and that our kids can do it.. I WANT TO GIVE COMPTON A CHANCE BUT SHOW ME AND MY CHILDREN THAT COMPTON UNIFIED IS THE PLACE TO BE. PLEASE!!!! THANK YOU. SINCERLY FRANCES MACIAS AGUILAR A CONCERNED PARENT

    This school has great teachers who are involve in the students lifes and their needs. They put their own time to help those in need. The principal help parents as well as the teachers.

    The principal many many many times is not fair to the differences between cultures that includes parents staff and students.
