The dual program,it's great.my daughters can speak very good English and Spanish I am very happy with the school.
Wow after attending my son's parent conference today, i was amazed at how bad the curriculum is. Their transitioning from a California standard learning school to Common Core. My kid comes home intimated and confused. We show him the best and proper way to solve and understand both reading comprehension and math problems. My wife and myself are graduates and at times notice questions that do not make sense and math problems that are retarded. Our kid is facing the challenge of which way is right and at times school is not right. 2+2=6-2=4+2 what? He's in 1st grade for god sakes! And if 65+5=70 is wrong because he didn't prove it. Wow!
When my kids we're attending this school I thought it was one of the best for their needs...considering what was capitalized for the real world....ok. they had good teachers onewas great and I voleentered as much as I could and contributed $ as much as I could. The principal at the Time was on a personal roll...I started to get very concerned about my kids at this school......they now carry the scars ......One was a ginger. One was blonde.
A lot of the negative reviews here focus on the previous principal who was on the way to retirement. Since the current principal took over a few years ago, there have been many positive changes. The International Baccalaureate program and Dual Language program at Meyler make it one of the more competitive and enriching schools in the district. Children also benefit from the Gifted pull-out program, the weekly orchestra instruction, and rotating art, dance, and drama visiting teachers. I am very happy that my children attend this school. The teachers for the most part are positive influences and work very hard. The PTA is just starting to build momentum and the fundraising efforts really help. The one and two star reviews are skewed. The one claiming to be from a teacher is misspelled and another refers to her time at Meyler from 20 years ago. Not relevant now. Reviews should be kept current with staff and program changes to reflect fairly how people feel about it. This school is a good one.
