So our school year is off and running. Many changes have taken place this year. Some are just differences and others are leaving me with concerns and questions. What I and I believe anyone else would expect from leadership in a school is greatly lacking. The new principle shows no desire to communicate with parents. MIA is a good way to describe her. I hope that all the efforts to make changes in our district happen. All the schools deserve the best and I would guess that most are not getting it. So sad! Thankfully the teaching staff has maintained their outstanding performances.

This school is by far the best school in the district. High parent involvement specialized programs state of the art technology and is cutting edge in all aspects of a positive learning climate. Wonderful knowledgeable experienced teachers that are the core for the fabulous school environment. Where the need for improvement is at the district level.
We have loved Mission Park! The principal is supportive of extra programs that benefit the students. Great teachers!
They took my kids cell phone away!!!!! I had no way to contact my child . I had to clam it in the office! I am very mad at them for taking it away
We love this school. My son is in 1st grade and so we have attended two years. Excellent teachers. Very involved parents. Happy and smart kids. Love the environment.
Sad this school does not have greater funding. My child went to this school but then we were accepted to a different school and district and gladly accepted. What a difference. The office in my child's new school is helpful and friendly and the district is as well. The parents participation is great. Fundraisers are always going on but are very successful and helps keep the programs going on year around. My child's class has a lower head count in class and does not have children coming in and out distracting other kids in class or mixed grades in same class. Also goes full day instead of just 3 hours. Just because there is a lack of funding shouldn't cause the staff to treat you like your not even there.
Parents need to realize that money for after school help (tutoring) and summer school comes from state funding...which Mission Park and 2 other schools in the district received next to nothing. Suggestion get involved in School Site Council...great way to learn about funding...or lack of.
Great teachers and principal. Great PTA and good parental involvement.
In response to the parent that would like bi-lingual help in the office. Would that be Italian? This is an excellent school. I am blessed to be able to send my kids here.
This is a great school if you're in the Salinas area. Teachers are wonderful but I wish they would offer Summer school or some kind of extra help or tutoring for the kids.
Academic Programs are great. Lots of access to computers science music etc. Parent involvement is wonderful however I feel the school would benefit from bridging the gaps in regard to cultural issues. No one in the front office is bilingual-which in my opinion considering the area they should make that available.
My children have been at this school since kindergarten. The teachers and staff are the best I have ever seen. It means alot when you can walk on campus any time and all you see are smiling faces from all around.
Feel that Mission Park need to focus on safety sanitation(especially in bathrooms) control students' behavior from other districts and involve parents more. They need to address health and extra curricular activities especially P.E.
