We have two kids at Agassiz. Our main impression has been that while the academic side is well taken care of, the social development side could use more proactive attention. Like many schools in this part of the district (north side), inequality is an issue, a function of income inequality. The upper-middle-class kids have their own cliques, and if you are priced out of the fancy activities or clubs, you will get excluded. All the teachers we've interacted with have been excellent.

Excellent! Came from a suburban private situation and this school is very much appreciated. I would never go back.

I would give a 2-3 out of 10 to Agassiz. It’s a diverse school, which I like for my students. However, the school leadership doesn’t truly embrace this diversity in meaningful ways. The school grew a lot 5-10 years ago, but has been stuck on a plateau with very little upward growth the last 5 years or so. To improve, Agassiz needs new school leadership - a principal that is open to feedback, reflective, has communication skills, values differentiation, models rigor and respect, and pushes teachers’ growth. We have been greatly disappointed in the school, especially after the way it was sold to us on the school tour we went on.

Our third year at the school. We have seen the good and the bad. Teachers on the whole are inspiring. The principal does not appear to address issues that parents bring to her.
