My older kids now 25, 19 and 3 more now and the school is not the same. First many programs are disappearing and others or not so good. Second If you have a problem you will get the principal or the office ladies tell you to make appointment, or come back letter. If you end up talking to her she will blame your kid and keep saying to talk to your kid or my teachers are the best. Never in so many years have I had a problem until this year. Most teachers care for student and some you can count in 1 hand that don't care and need to retire. Ladies in the office are nice and I know they are just doing their job.This school use to be one of the best schools and the number has gone down since new principal came in.
I have had three children attend this school throughout ten years and had have met some of the best and caring teachers and staff here. However, there is always room for improvement.
Niemes is an excellent school. We have two kids that are currently enrolled in the dual immersion program and two kids that culminated from Niemes. Niemes has lots of extracurricular activities for students, hosts many family events, and offers many opportunities for parents to be involved. The staff have always been very friendly, professional & helpful.
I'm sorry you seemed to have a bad experience with this school. But don't negate my children's experience like it's nothing. They enjoy their school, and if my children are excited to go to school not just because of seeing their friends, but to see what their teachers are going to teach them, then the school is doing something right. Test scores are meaningless if they are excited about what they are learning, but it seems like all you care about are test scores. And also, when I did my school comparison with the LAUSD school, it actually wasn't the worst school I compared Niemes to - the school that I had sent my oldest son to for TK in LAUSD was far more worse than the home school they are supposed to be at! If you are so unhappy with the school district, go to another school district that has will satisfy your needs! Obviously, ABCUSD is not working for you, but I am completely satisfied with the school and the district.
