Los Cerritos School Reviews
This school does not cover the standers provided by the state of CA. On April 5 I attended open house and to my surprise the 2nd grade class was bare of original works. A 2nd grader learns by hands on we all know that. April 5 was open house the class should reflect the work the teacher and students are covering. My own mind was not stimulated the way a 2nd grader should be with materiel, tools and skill. I also question the language arts books that are provided by paramount school, they were covering about 15% of the materials. And when a sat down with the principle to address my concerns, the principl explain that the student my nephew was being taken out of class and Ms Martinez was working with him in language arts using other forms. Well sad to say rather than dealing with this properly by the administrators they chose to lie and cover it up. This is not the first time l hear of anithecal practices by the Paramount school district. This time I plan to take action any way a can. If anyone can help out I would really appreciate it.
