The school is really not that bad, keep in mind that most of the kid's parents don't care about their kid's education. The school has the BEST music teacher (Mr. Nick Olmos), please just Google his name to see his many achievements, he is the most committed teacher I have ever seen, teaches Orchestra and Mariachi music to high standards. About 70% of kids come from single family homes with 3+ children, uneducated, absent or even parents with a criminal record, so the school runs pretty low on parent's support, and pretty low in SARC scores. Because of this the schools receives large grants from the government, and it seems like the money its well spend, no broken stuff, new computer labs, enough school materials, and decent long term teachers (some more than 20+ years). The school has a small school feel to it, where everybody knows your kid's name. I know most of the teachers and only 3 deserve to be fired for not caring, about 10+ teachers deserve multiple awards for their commitment. The school has a large FREE afterschool program that helps kids with their homework and keeps them busy with educational activities until 5:30pm. I'd recommend College Heights.
