If parents are complaining and whining about the issues at this school, it is because these parents are babying and siding with their kids because they think their kids are angels and can do no wrong... The staff at the school works with all the kids in making sure there is no bullying or issues and the office staff, Mrs Tanioka and Mrs. Brede are always available to talk to or call. They are both friendly, courteous, and listen to all parent concerns. parents need to let your kids be kids and stop thinking they are perfect and can do no wrong!!!!
The experience has been a trip and I would rate it as neutral because of the great families that attend and are involved, but also unsatisfactory as to what the school itself has to offer and how it handles issues. We have been in this school a while and it has been interesting to hear our children’s stories and experiences through the years, along with the experiences of other students and parents who have become our friends. LC is good in that they have solid test scores, a strong PTSO, and a close-knit community mentality. It is clear that the parents make this school, not the principal or teachers. The parents push their kids and hold them to a high standard, not the school. Do not mistake the “California Distinguished School” logo for more than it is. Look around as you’re driving around. Most schools in the area have this logo, so this really doesn’t set LC apart. There is no librarian, no music, no choir – nothing you would think a well-rounded education would have, unless you want to pay extra for occasional after school classes that they contract out. They had a P.E. teacher a few days a week, I think it was last year for the upper grades, but that ended. They are trying another fitness program this year and may carry over, but I’m not sure. Basically, by the time you figure out how the school is run and have the nerve to deal with issues, it’s almost time to leave and move on to middle school. It has taken us a few years to figure out that life, education and a great school are made up of more than just good math and ELA test scores. Thank you for reading.
Teachers get stuck on very silly things. They want students to say what they want to hear. The principal has an attitude. Teachers never admit they were wrong even when it is obvious. The principal backs up the teacher. When she knows they are wrong she avoids meeting the parents. She will refuse to meet at 7 am and schedule a meeting midday, so it is hard for the parent to leave work.
Los Coyotes is the best!!!! Proven success! They won the distinguished school award this year!
