    no way the test scores are lower than any other school in the area. Please check test score of other schools with in a mile of this school they need to be come a charter school.

    Principal Acosta Montero has no control over bullying. She does not follow district bullying policy. She has lost students to transfers or absence for ignoring the matter to kids will.be kids. Principal Acosta Montero needs to be fired demoted or transferred to another school. The API scores are in decline. and one of the lowest in the community. Perhaps a charter school would be an improvement if she is not removed.

    PRINCIPAL Acosta Montero is a discredit to the educational system. Her school has declining API scores this year by -19 . The school is one of the lowest in the community. SIERRA Vista Elem and El Sereno Elem. ARE FAR BETTER BY AT LEAST 100 PLUS POINTS. What can be expectef if she loses control parents staff and faculty. Lets personal relationships interfer with running her school.
