I'm sad that this school looks so great by test scores, but has been such a let down. I guess they are just riding on the coattails of teaching mostly advantaged white children who typically do well on standardized testing regardless of teacher effectiveness.
Had two children attend from Pre-K all the way through 5th grade. No real issues until 2017-2018 school year when the 5th grade teachers and the assistant principal decided to make my child an outcast. Unacceptable behavior on the part of adults working in the school.
For a school that boasts racial diversity and a Vietnamese dual language program, there’s quite a bit of racial exclusivity instead. The Vietnamese folks keep to themselves, while the non-Asians act like Asians don’t exist. In addition there seems to be a secret book club that meets every week to exclude the non-goers even more. I’m addressing the adults here - parents and staff.It's like this invisible veil of mutual "let’s-ignore-this-problem” that covers the face of every non-asian and vietnamese person there. Do people not want to get along? I don’t mean co-exist in the same space, but really exchanging friendship and racial unity? Considering that this is the racial state of the school, most people are blind to what’s going on here. If you don’t look Asian, great, but if you do and you’re not Vietnamese, be prepared. Don’t let it stop you from contributing.With that said, the education my child gets is wonderful, and is very happy in class and has lots of friends. Not part of the dual language program. I’d say my child is well adjusted and the teachers my child has had so far were wonderful. There is definitely a desire to learn, and my child gets excited to go to school every day. There is a high parent involvement which is a positive but they’re mostly racist Christian parents … so while the parents are involved they don’t necessarily involve each other. Not all of them are like this but it is the majority.I really get uncomfortable bringing up issues like this and I don’t like pointing out the negatives but if you ignore something for too long it becomes worse.
Teachers care about students as individuals. Parents are invested and involved.
