We come to this school with a lot of expectations, because of its reputation. Unfortunately we find is a lack of administration. Teachers are in general good (not exceptional, just good) a lot of them are Spanish speakers (which I’m too, nothing wrong with that) but their English level should be better that what is in reality. The number of kids per class, in several cases exceded the maximum allowed per the district school, for example last year (2019-2020) second grade had classes with 33, 28 and 24 kids until December, they were moving kids little by little but that was unacceptable especially because one of those teachers is so incompetent kids learn very little . No action was taken by administration even though all complaints filled by parents related with this matter. All bathrooms are in a bad conditions, horrible smell. Classroom as well as the school need at least be painted. The environment is hostile with kids and also with parents. The online learning is a joke.

The elementary is a great program, there are many good teachers there and you can study Spanish or Portuguese with English of course. The middle school program is not so great. There are little clubs and electives. The only time you really have a choice is when you are in 8th grade where you decide whether you'd like to do music or visual arts. Everything is very strict and the school really just focuses on the IB program. There are many great teachers in the middle school program such as Mr. Hercule and Mr. Ferrandiz who help you learn and have fun at the same time. Many parents are involved in the school over all and they have helped the school improve some of it's issues.
The food is, well, middle school food. Usually beans, rice, and very occasionally something nice like chicken nuggets. Personally, i prefer to bring my own school lunch. Most of the teachers are fantastic, although some have preferences for certain grades. On the social aspect, amazing. Last school i went to i mt like two friends, but this school allows for much more social contact. However, i feel that k-6 are very isolated, and all their classes happen inside of a small corridor, while middle school gets to explore the whole, amazing campus between classes.
