BAD, The New Principal does NOT take parents concerns serious she is rude and disrespectful and does NOT care about students safety.
My daughter is in 2nd grade on the magnet program. She loves her teacher ms. Vela and her after school coach eneida. The magnet program is very well managed by the parents that help the teacher out with activities, announcements, organizing events and helping those Full time working parents to be involved and up to date with whats going on with the class. The school may not be in the nicest neighborhood but the magnet program is outstanding. After having my daughter transferred from regular to magnet I notice how her attitude towards school changed positively. She enjoys going to school everyday and always has something mew to talk about. The teachers put good effort in making a difference in every student by going the extra mile for them. I would totally recommend this school.
I graduated in 1986 best school ever. had awsome teachers and great princaples and a great orchestra teacher Mr Arskawa..teachers cared about your future glad to see its a magnet school..
I myself attended this school over 30 years ago and was excited for my children to attend Plasencia. Fortunately their teachers have been amazing. This and their art programs are the highlight. Unfortunately the administration aspect has been disappointing and the safety of the school has been questionable since there has been a couple of lockdowns since my kids have been attending. I also dont think working parents are taken into consideration in planning. since notices of school performances or other functions are very last minute. parent advisory meetings are held in the morning during the week so it's impossible for working parents to make it.
