Agua Fria Elementary School Reviews
Agua Fria is a super school. The staff of teachers is well experienced and the principal should be nominated for sainthood. With a student base of 80% illegal immigrant parentage the school suffers immensely from poor parenting and grades. The staff endeavors to find ways to teach and reach this population of deprived children while ensuring that the English capable students get a fair shake at education. Contrary to the PC correct speak, PARENTS do make a difference and when parents do not encourage children to assimilate and succeed you wind up with government dependent, high crime committing individuals. New Mexico is overflowing with them now. PED should demand English and civics be learned and understood before social promotions are done.
Agua Fria is a great school. It has superb teachers that deserve twice the salary. A principle that visibly yearns for her students to succeed and essentially lives at the school to get everything possible accomplished to that end. The students are energetic, willing to learn, craving attention from a positive role model, wanting to be recognized for their accomplishments and feeling secure within the school fencing, then have to go home to a grandmother that cannot speak English and mom waits for her parole hearing, next tattoo or next boyfriend. It is the parents not the teachers that ensure success.
