Lopez School District Reviews

2 reviews
Above-average school middle & high school. Great elementary. English program is especially good throughout. Math OK and getting better with recent dynamic and talented hire on MS/HS side. Physics, chemistry and physical science pretty good but somewhat hampered by math. Great opportunities in sports (no try-outs, so you can join any team... but the teams still tend to be pretty good), great foreign travel (Japan, France, Nicaragua or Peru, Greece). Awesome garden-to-cafeteria program that provides up to 90% of cafeteria's food during harvest time. Committed leadership.

My kids are high school students. I also went there decades ago and went on to get a Ph.D. at UC Berkeley.

One star school. Where the high turnover of teachers and administration, lack of care towards the students grades, most academics are at least a year behind, students deal with moral upset from poor principal leadership to teachers that are simply there for a paycheck. There are a few goods, but there are so many bad that out weight them. There seems to be money shuffling within (hence the constant audits) and programs failing = students failing. Ask the students if they suffer from favoritism issues, lack of appropriate teachers, and general moral... all will say yes.
