    If I could give this school 0 stars I would! This is by far the WORST UNSAFE school I have ever encountered. My kindergartner is late to get out EVERY DAY by at least 7 minutes. The front office does not check proper ID when releasing a child early. An unauthorized person got my child from school on two separate occasions. Brought it up to principle on 1st occasion nothing was done obviously. Principle ACTS like he is engaged by standing out front at the end of school but lets major safety issues slip right past him. API test scores are WAY below average (as you can read on this site). My son was tested and scored 3rd grade reading level (in kinder) and I was told that there is no program or anything to further advance or challenge him so in other words he must dumb down in class and do kindergarten work when he is far more advanced. Because of him being advanced he gets citations in class for talking to others (because he is bored obviously). Bottom line I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this school to my worst enemy.

    There are great teachers and staff. Everyone is very friendly respectful and I love the way they try to make the parents get involved to make their child's learning experience great. They make sure the student is getting the right help in the area needed.

    The district of Hacienda/La Puente should have CLOSE this school long time ago. Despite of all the effort and all the funds throwing to this school it still does not achieve the 800 standard API from California. What a waste of money!!! The district will be better off if this school close and use the money to take care of other schools with better performance!!!!

    The teachers and staff are positive and devoted to the community. I am especially impressed with the fifth grade teachers. They use laptops daily in the class with the students. They are wonderful people! Keep up the great work!

    Bixby is a school with a new principal who has good ideas and is making positive changes. Currently there the school offers art activities after school however I would like to see music introduced as an extracurricula activity. I see some parent envolvement and the academic programs are good with room for some improvement.

    My 5 year old daughter was attending kindergarden here. This school had been a big disappointment. I noticed that one of the teachers has very low moral standards and others are very absent minded. It looks like them come to work to take a break. No wonder this school's test score is so low!
