    My eldest daughter attended Lugo grades 1 through 5 and in that time the school had three principals. Instruction was always geared towards the CST. There were no aspects of a "well-rounded" education. In her 5th grade year she did not learn about U.S. history science or other topics of study. Classroom instruction and homework was always centered on questions covered in the CST. I was teaching my daughter topics she should have been learning in school because this Title I school is so under performing. Leadership is non-existant teachers are content to just follow the agenda from the principal and kids are not challenged. I eventually pulled her out of Lynwood Unified and enrolled her into West Middle School in the Downey Unified School District. The difference was night and day. A varied curriculum involved teachers and constant communication from school staff & administrators. She is now a 7th grader and taking Algebra 1 on the West TV production staff and was the top 6th grade science student. Any parent thinking about enrolling their child in this or any Lynwood Unified school would be committing an act of child cruelty. Sincerely Wayne B. Bergeron Sr.

    My oldest child has attended Lugo for three years and my middle child will begin first grade this fall. I have not been disappointed with the teachers as they do their darndest with what limited resources they have but I have a serious gripe with the prinicpal Ms. Skornia and the Parent Council. My oldest is a rarity as she is the only Caucasian non-Spanish speaking student in the school. As a result the instruction in English grammar and reading has been sorely limited as her classmates struggle because English is their second language. The efforts of the teachers to get the students up to par with the English language has created drag and lag in other academic categories. The only convenience is that the school is close to home but this is the last academic year I intend to have my children attend Lugo Elementary.

    I don't think that the curriculum is up to par as far as grammar for the students. Not to crazy about the school system.
