    as a principal natalie gaither did a fine job she was very accomodating and did her best with what was given to her.she will be missed at repetto and her new school has alot to gain.she worked hard for these kids to make sure they succeeded.if your child didn't succeed maybe the blame should be placed on your child and yourself as a parent. My only problem with the principal is that i thought she was a bit to easy on the kids when there needed to be stiff penalties for bad behavior other than that i feel she did a fine job here at repetto

    The principal Natlie Gaither is very bad. She does not care about students. All she cared was making money. She prefers to give students medicines if they are not quite enough or follow her rules. She will be moved to Brightwood elementary school. I have asked all the parents on my street and none of them would support her to stay in Repetto. A big waste of our tax money. We are the permanent residents in Monterey Park. We need a good principal!

    The teachers a Repetto do an excellent job and the office staff have been very helpful when things need to get done asap.

    Repetto is an amazing school! The teachers are strict but creative and the principal works hard and has a smile all the time. Parent support is very strong.

    Some staff show cleavage. You let your boys goes to school to see that? Lots of teachers wears sandal to school. Doesn't anybody sees the unprofessional clothing? Why kids have to wear uniform and they dress like street ladies? Office staffs are definitely rude and uneducated. They ask for donation all the time act like they're so poor but upgrading on plants but parents have to buy all the supplies. What donation for? They built the great wall of china making it more difficult for parents to go in the office other school isn't like that. This IS NOT a private school. Their eyes is in their forehead.

    Most teachers in this school are caring teachers. Some of them are strict in a good way. I would rather having my children get tough life in school than be sorry stepping into the societ hardly finding any job. Life is tough and competitive that's something they need to learn in their early age. Funny thing is I hear comment from my kids like " OMG she is strict but i learn a lot from her..." . Good job.

    Absolutely terrible school! We have three children and have moved several times so we have experience with many different schools both in California and Michigan. This is by far the worst school we have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. The staff is mean to the students and unreasonably strict to the point of ridiculousness. There is terrible racism from both the staff and the students. You not only have to worry about bullying from the students but even more so from the staff. If you have children PLEASE do yourself a favor and DO NOT move into this school district.

    I have three girls going to Repetto. This is a great school with many caring teachers sharing their high standards. The teachers are committed to their teaching passions! My salute and gratitude to you all!!! Unnamed Attorney & CPA parent.

    For a school with such high rating it is disappointed to know that staffs/teachers disciplined the students by forcing them to pick up trash. I was told that this was the main discpline method. Doesn't the staffs/teachers know that there are better methods of disciplining the kids?

    My daughter currently is in kindergarten at Repetto. She is doing very well in her academics. She loved being in the special art class. Mrs. Young and Principal Mrs. Gaither are very nice and caring. All the kindergarten teachers are very nice. She is looking forward to starting 1st grade.

    I love Repetto and I'm going to miss it when I go to Mark Keppel. The people are great here especially the teachers. The 8th grade teachers are the best they definately made our year the most memorable. Thank you ! (=

    My son is an 8th grader and is getting sad to leave Repetto. He loves this school. He will miss the teachers and staff. I was worried about him not crossing stage but his teachers and Mrs. Gather have been checking up on him all the time. The teachers are really supportive and I am impressed that the principal would take such an interest in his progress. When I was a student I don't remember ever talking with the principal (for good ro bad reasons). I'm glad she is firm with the kids. They know they cannot get away with anything with her. I know my student will be okay. I hope he gets the same kind of support when he goes to Mark Keppel HS.

    Repetto has strong teachers that collaborate with each other willing and ready to teach children. However they need parents to foster discipline at home in order for teachers to implement their educational plan.

  • (8 years ago)

    Needs improvements such as teachers giving more homework to the children and fostering more involvement by the parents.

  • (8 years ago)

    Repetto is an up and coming school.

  • (9 years ago)
