The new principal (Claudia Barba) is great. She listens to parents students and she puts a lot of efforts on changing the school's situation. She changed the school's boring website she added in a lot of activities for kids she is always the first person in the school very early in the morning and stays until very late. She cares about what parents and kids say. The TWBI in Spanish program is great for Spanish kids as well as none English speaking. I am a Vietnamese but I feel really comfortable with this program. During the 2nd cup of coffee meeting it is a little confusing for none English speaking parents since the Spanish parents are dominant. The principal tries to translate but she doesn't have time to do that. Finally I love her beautiful smiling it really shines when seeing that. I support this school and the new principal. My kid is lucky to be in this school.
