    For a new school I am thrilled with Nishimoto's progress. My son and daughters all came from a different school where their grades were not all that great and my oldest daughter suffered from the onslaught on increasing bullying by other students. I transferred my kids to Nishimoto and in less than a year my kids have improved their grades. My son's going from a B/C average to an A my oldest daughter's from a D almost F to B and my youngest daughter's from a C to A. When the kids finished their bench mark tests this quarter the school district sent home a letter telling us that the school as a whole didn't do to hot on the testing scores; and offered me the opportunity to send my kids to another school. I was outraged! There happy here and here they'll stay. Way to go Nishimoto keep it up.
