This school is in an underserved area with a 32 1 student/teacher ration. The teachers do not have aides and the parents are encouraged to volunteer. My daughter attended K last year with a great teacher that retired but due to the entry level of the students the teacher had to lower the standards to 50 sight words only instead of the standard 100. I see many parents frustrated where some believe it is too low and vice versa. The teachers must teach as a class. Maybe it should be encouraged to divide the classes for faster learners and for the others extra help outside of school hours. I know many students that attended here and have moved on to honors in junior and senior highs. If your child does attend this school just be prepared to help out more than usual. Further I do not believe in standardized testing and no all children/people test the same.
