This school is leaps and bounds better than other alternatives in town. Hidden gem really.
Love It! The staff is supper Friendly. You can feel the vibe. It’s just a safe and fun place, just the way it should be.
School is horrible, my son went here for TK and Kinder and was never challenged. He was bored because the curriculum was too easy, but they wouldn't give him anything more challenging. And because he was bored, he would be disruptive by playing around and talking with other students which led to him getting in trouble a couple of times. Had to finally go to the teacher and principal and state that if they weren't going to challenge him or give him harder work when he finished within minutes, then he shouldn't get in trouble for being bored and disruptive. He was also bullied at this school several times and nothing was ever done about it. My son's pants were pulled down at recess and I didn't find out until a week later when discussing it with my son. Even though he told staff, they did nothing about the issue. I went down to the school and talked to the principal who promised to call me when they had a meeting to resolve the issue. The week goes by and I never received a call. Found out from my son that him and the other boy were called to the office and told to let it go. Worst school experience for my son ever. My son was also labeled as an English Learner even though we speak no Spanish. Come to find out, the school gets more money for having more EL students so they are willing to falsify documentation to syphon money from the state to line their pockets.
My kids have both attended this school and they were great. My oldest is now in Edison and it is a great school too. My kids attended another school for about 7 months in Soledad, ca it was horrible.
