San Gabriel Avenue Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

My children all attend this school and during the 6 yrs my twins have been within this school I have had nothing but trouble with the school system.  I have tried to get the school to help my children achieve their levels in school but seems only a small few teachers really care about the kids.  We had a better chance of change with older Principals that have left and moved on.  I love my children and only wish the best for them but feel this school is falling way behind and that it can use major help and if offered to send my two youngest to new school next year will do this with open heart seeing I only want them to have the best even if it means a school a bit farther away.  My twins next year will be in junior high which terrifies me seeing they seem to be a bit behind in school seeing the school only has a after school program that DOES NOT WORK!!! I say this due to the woodcraft rangers are unreliable and unresponcible people whom need better training and to show some respect to parents and children when in the program. I feel the school should better itself seeing many parents have come together and spoken amongst one another to and all feel the same way about the school. Hope everyone opens eyes to this problem with the school and at least tries to fix it or help us all out to get our kids the education they deserve.
