Santa Rosa Technology Magnet School Reviews
As a public school, this school serves its students well. There is no secondary language taught until the children reach middle school and there is no music program. The school benefits from strong parent participation, a dedicated principal and teachers. Certainly some teachers are stronger than others. The school falls short in knowing what to do with the most advanced students. Our son was identified as very gifted, yet not much was done to challenge him or keep him engaged until we got extremely involved. Fortunately, the principal was willing to have our son assessed and then we were able to advance him and keep him challenged. The PTA is exceedingly well funded and comes up with things like Artists in the Classroom and most recently a TRACK! I don't believe the school is exceptional, yet I feel it will keep our children engaged in learning and enjoying the environment while they are there.
