Alum Rock Union Elementary School District Reviews

Everyone in this school is Latino. Teachers, students, and staff. There is no diversity. This school doesn't even teach Spanish but speaks Spanish to the students. My son always feels left out.

I have lived in the area for 30 years and continue to see a dysfunctional school district. My parents toured the schools about 25 years ago and chose not to have my sister nor I attend. Now, as a parent, I don't have my son attend any schools in their district. Continuous low test scores, school board drama, budgets not being properly used to help the students succeed....etc. This mess of a school district has been failing since the 90's! Although I do not send my children to their schools, I attend the board meetings because I want to see the youth in my neighbor succeeded. I'm so thankful I can send my child to private school.
